Fuel Filter ?

How often do you change your fuel filter and what brand do you use? Any tips for the change out?

I normally do around 15,000 miles, I use OEM but my dad has used aftermarket ones for years without issue. Post a pic of your fuel filter cap, we will tell you if its OEM or not. OEM filters go with OEM caps, aftermarket filters come with different caps

Drain the bowl before you open it up, its messy if you dont. If you stay with a stock filter a filter wrench is handy, using pliers will break it eventually, 16 bucks for the wrench I think

Baldwin. Made in the USA. Mine didn't have the factory cap so I have to use one with the cap attached. I tried the one that you get at the auto store a couple times only to have it not seal right and either slow leak or in another case I had a geyser of diesel when I started. wife was happy about the mess in our driveway. Why the hell do they make driveways white.

This is the lid I have. I have never changed the filter since the truck is new to me. I bought a motorcraft filter so I guess my next step is to take the lid off and make sure the lid is not part of my filter. If it is I need a new filter and not motorcraft. Is this correct??

Yes, you will need the motorcraft lid. As said above, they also seal much better than aftermarket ones. I fought with them multiple times
