You should change the fuel filter every 6000 miles, about every other oil change.

Rotella T 15w40 is the standard for diesel engines. I would highly recommend changing the fuel filter every oil change.

What could cause the engine not to stay running after the fuel filter was replaced? Even after fuel pump was replaced?


From remote site, it is hard to tell what is the root cause, and change pump was done in proper order -- you should post the problem before replacing fuel pump.
Here is what I will do, assume you can do a little by yourself.
Changing fuel filter should be easy by disconnect fuel hose (pipe) from the fuel filter . Since ASE mechanic did job in your house, I assume the old fuel filter is still in your hand. Change it back (replace new filter with your older one) to see if your car will work as before. This supposed to be done before replacing the fuel pump.
If older filter works, then you knew the new filter is the root cause. This could be resolved by replacing another new filter. If the problem appear again, leave the new filter in for over night to see if the new filter will work on the next day (you could use exiting new filter to avoid buying another filter, unless you will get a different brand one). If not, the choice is to use older one for a while when trying figure why new filter does not work.

If old filter does not wok either, then something is in forwarding fuel line between fuel filter and fuel ejection system. Then, that section needs to be cleaned. Assume the pressure is measured at connection between forwarding line and fuel filter.

Fuel is flowing from the tank to the engine, but will not start. Engine will start if fuel is provided through the air intake port at the air filter.


check fuel filter and fuel pump,if the filter clugged change it, if pump doesnt work change both pump and filter.

Where and how to change fuel filter on 1996 Ford F350 7.3 turbo disel truck? Is there more than one fuel filter?


Please don't forget to rate!!!!

Diesel Engines The 6.9L and 7.3L diesel engines use a one-piece spin-on fuel filter. Do not add fuel to the new fuel filter. Allow the engine to draw fuel through the filter.
  1. Remove the spin-on filter by unscrewing it counterclockwise with your hands or a strap wrench.
  2. Clean the filter mounting surface.
  3. Coat the gasket or the replacement filter with clean diesel fuel. This helps ensure a good seal.
  4. Tighten the filter by hand until the gasket touches the filter mounting surface.
  5. Tighten the filter an additional 1⁄2 turn. NOTE: After changing the fuel filter, the engine will purge the trapped air as it runs. The engine may run roughly and smoke excessively until the air is cleared from the system.

Fuel filter on picaso 2.0 litre diesal engine


Black smoke from a diesel engine does not mean you have to change the fuel filter.It is caused by the air filter being dirty.That you need to change.Anyway if you want to change the fuel filter it is located at the front middle of the engine in a black plastic round case with notches around the top.Good luck hope that was helpfull.
