No. I have the one that's installed under the car next to the fuel filter.
For whatever reason i can't get it to push all the way in. I don't know if maybe it has something to do with the fuel pressure, if so how do ideal with it. Thanks.

regardless, i think the point of the article that ed linked was that you should use some lube on the o-rings to aid in instaling the new fpr.

the article stated white litium grease, but i have used 90w gear oil as well. just a tiny bit, though. no need to go crazy with the lube.

then even pressure until it seats. you do not want to kink or rip the seals.


double check for leaks when done.


where in nj are ya??

Thanks for going into more detail on that df. I've had no reason (yet) to touch my fpr.
