#118055, "new fuel filter keeps leaking"




          

Not sure what the problem is but i go today to replace my old filter seeing that its and old pos and god only knows when/if it has ever been replaced.

But after install it keeps leaking from the rear(toward the back of the car rear). I made sure i have both brass washers in(both new) and yet it still leaks. I am wondering now if the pump is backwards(from the look of my repair manual it looks right)

still leaking and i tried a new filter and new brass rings, does anyone know how tight i need to make it.
I was thinking 22ftlbs but i can't get a torque wrench in there. And it is leaking like crazy from both ends now

It should be pretty damn tight to the point it stops leaking. Make sure you dont have any flakes of rust on the sealing surfaces.

Thanks terry. I went back in after a recovery break, torqued the hell out of it and it fixed the leak. Damn i had no idea that thing had to be so tight:eek
