Good Ole Wix Filters......

So after trying to narrow a few things down today trying to chase down a check engine light I checked the Fuel filter.... Mind you I put this in the truck at 125,238 miles and it now has 129,877. This is what it looked like:






This is what was between the pleats on the inside and i have no idea what it is....



Needless to say I will never run anything WIX in my truck again, the filter practically came apart and the bottom of the fuel bowl had a good 1/4'' of trash in it....

Just hope nothing got past the filter and got into the injectors...

Thats it though.. I have a pre pump filter thats a water seperator that gets changed EVERY oil change and i drained it today as well and there wasnt a DROP of water in that thing.

The blk stuff was kinda gummy though

I can see the water in the plastic cap in your pic. That is IMO water damage. Im sure more will chime in...

Is your water seperator pre or post pump?

Re: Good Ole Wix Filters......

deffinately looks like the "algea" that grows in a diesel tank when moisture gets in there. I think you need to treat your tank with some sort of bioside like hammerdown or biobore. Thats nasty and i dont think its the filters fault, i think its the fault of the water in the diesel fuel your trin to run through your truck....

Is your water seperator pre or post pump?
The water on the cap is from a run away water hose from filling up the water troughs for the cows... Thing got me soaked before i knew what happend.

The filter is pre pump.

It looks to me that the filter did stop most of it... What kinda T'ed me off is that the filter came apart.... How it looks on the table is how it came out the truck... In pieces.
