hi i have ba 03 futura and trying to change fuel filter.the filter was in backwards(worked fine)(flow arrow pointed to rear) and the new z373(both filters are z373) is a different size so i was left with no choice but to just turn the old one around now it seems to be hunting abit is this due to a dirty filter or direction?(flow arrow pointed to front) should i turn it back.Cant find a filter that will fit any one else had this issue please help.10.4l/100km.I asked the team at supercheap and ford but no one has any idea. :?

If the thread sizes are the same, bend the metal pipes a little to make it fit,

replace it with the same brand,when you turned it around you put all the rubbish into the motor,it may clear or need work.

might want to get your injectors cleaned...or just get a second pair from wreckers to see how that goes. No doubt the reversing of the filter has caused s**t to go through the system and most likely into the injector filter/basket or whatever it is called.
