Fuel Filter.

Hi everyone, new to this forum. Have lot's of good luck from knowlegable people on Ranger and Mercruiser forums. Here is my question. I have 1993 F-350 with a 460 and the 4eod trans(7.5 for all you new tech-ies) and I want to change the fuel filter on the frame rail. The manual says to bleed the pressure off the line at the f.i. manifold rail. When I depressed the shrader valve, I just got a drip, if that. That was after it was sitting for 30 minutes or so. Started it up and ran it for a few minutes and then checked it and got a little more. Is this thing leaking down the injectors and losing pressure? If I have no pressure there can I safely remove the line off the filter with out get gas sprayed every where? Mine has the metal spring clip that snaps over the filter and the line. I suppose you just remove that and twist and pull the line off....yes? I never expected this to be an economy vehicle, but it is the worst vehicle as far as fuel milage goes. The auto trans seems to be solid, but this dude has no problem getting 6 mpg in town and never more then 10 mpg on the highway. The highway mpg isn't that surprising, but 6 in the city? That kind of makes me think the injectors may be dripping. Really it's the filter and the bleed off I need to know about now.....


Thanks in advance,

Eric<><

Re: Fuel Filter.

So.........either no one has one of these pickups or one of these filters?
