NOTES:
1) It is a triton(or one of those "modular"?) engine if that makes any difference; It IS NOT MINE---i would never buy ford---only gm for me. i am trying to impress people at work with my knowledge of cars.
It might mean you waited to long before replacing the fuel filter.I have seen pumps die after filter changes, only because the pump was allready damged by the filter being plugged and overheating the pump too many times,
Also, maybe the filter was installed bacwards and the media caved in and plugged the outlet. Just a thought.
My Triton runs sweet and it has 185,000 miles on it. Of course i maintain it.
Ford chevy whatever, they all get crappy if you dont take care of them.
Here is a pic, and last picture bump.
