i have a 7.3l 97 psd and i wanna change the fuel filter. So i went and got a fram filter and pulled the old one off and it wont come off the fuel filter cap. What does that mean? Is it a specific filter? Where do i get one?
its one of the filters that has the cap attached to it, unless you have the oem cap you will either need a new oem cap or a similar filter/lid style filter. fleetfilter.com has the lid style. Its is a WIX brand and is around 20ish bucks. Baldwin also makes this style of filter as well. Napa carries the wix brand as well but i pad 40+ for my last filter I needed from them:doh:
easiest way to tell is, if it has a square hole for a 1/2 drive ratchet, thats the attached cap kind. The OEM style filter and cap have 2 little plastic tabs on the side of the filter that clip into the sides of the cap.
