Just changed fuel filter in my 2005 Grand Marquis. The car ran fine befor I changed the filter, now it won't start or starts momentarily then stumbles and dies. Yes the filter is installed in the right direction. As a way of determining that I was getting good fuel flow I disconnected the engine side of the filter and turned on the ignition switch. Lots of fuel with a good strong stream. Evidently not a pump problem. Then again how would it know to fail when I only changed the filter. Evidently the fuel system is air bound. Is there a way to bleed the system of air?
What do I do now. It's my wife's car and with her own female logic she can't understand why I would change a filter if everything was working fine!
I need Help!
have the same problem?
