Question about 1999 Ford Crown Victoria
Hello, I have used the same filter from a 1994 on a 2002. I guess anything is possible from the wrong filter in a box to a incorrect ID. The screw-on filter may have a different opening size as a 9/16 being changed to a 5/8(10/16). Just take the old filter in to size the mounting hole and press the old filter against the new one to compare the size of the rubber washer.
There were short filters and tall filters which did the same job. Also if using a cap end wrench, the shape of the end of the filter may be different and you may need 2 end cap wrenches to do the job. Sometimes you need a parts counter person to look up what you had.
A different brand for your old filter can be interchanged with the brand they carry. They need to look in a book referred to as an OSI, which means obsolete, superceded, or Interchange. The recommended filter for the 4.6L is an MIFL 820 S in a Motorcraft filter.
