Fuel Filter

Yesterday I finished the last of the car work I had intended to do last weekend, replacing the fuel filter on my car.

Compared to the PCV valve debacle, it was a cinch. The worst part was getting at the part, as it is sort of buried above and behind the rear differential.

The second worst part was the gas bath. Even with the fuel system depressurized, gas still flowed out of the inlet hose at a pretty good rate. Coupled with some problems getting the outlet hose disconnected, gas ended up getting all over.

But it is done, and nothing appears to be leaking. So that was good. Plus it was 52F out yesterday (a record) so I could have the garage door open and enjoy the sun and warm breeze.
