fuel filter change question
I am new to the Powerstroke diesels and I am learning a lot, but ran into a question while changing the fuel filters today.
I started on top and added the Blue Spring upgrade from Sinister at the same time. The directions, as well as online videos, stated that I'd want to suck out the fuel from the filter bowl before pulling the old spring housing. But after I pulled the cap, it all drained out on its own. The rest of that part went as expected.
Then I moved to the filter under the frame rail. I backed out the water separator plug and it drained for a long time and just kept coming. I finally screwed it back in and pulled off the cap. Again, it just kept draining fuel. After I had caught more than half a gallon without seeing it slow down, I tossed in the new filter and closed it up.
Do I have an issue that should be addressed? Is there some sort of check valve that is not working?
Edit: I should add that this is an '05 truck
