Hello, every tank does have an initial screen to protect the pump internal parts, a screen, or sock as it is called. But unless your truck has something different, the filter is in the 5/16ths pressure line(8mm) a couple yards down toward the engine. It is a 36,000 mile change recommended. Never saw one without one because of the cost of injector and engine damage under warranty. OK It has the fittings you use a push in tool(pliers) for. OK Steve. Maybe they ran out of them and changed it. New to me. Put one on friday. Good truck. If you haven, t had pump(fuel) problems good. There were some problems with the in tank pumps, but I only see the bad ones so I would not be too concerned.
