Is their any thing I need to know before I change my fuel filter? This will be the first fuel filter change on my truck It has 8k miles on it now.
I never went 8k on my 6.0 with out changing the fuel filter.

Report back to us on how it goes. I have been watching and waiting for someone to talk about. More details the better please, I am at 10k miles and ready for the filter change myself.

Did you find any fuel filters except for motor craft? Rumor has it they are right at $100 for both, thanks.

I will use only motor craft filter after the crap I went through with my 6.0.

I've not got the filters yet I was looking for some good info before I get started. $100 fuel filters better be good.

The rumors were not to far off, my closest dealer has them for $87.27, and actually in stock! Of course, this is from the dealer who charges a $10 core charge for the 2.5 gallon jug of DEF.

Even going off of the severe mtce schedule every 8k seems like it is an expensive ritual for negligible gain to me.

I just can't get it in my head to go past 3k miles on a oil change. At 8700 miles this will be my 3rd oil change. I had rather spend a few $ now on a fuel filter. And over change my oil as to have a issue with a dirty fuel filter and extended drain time on the oil. Remember I owned a 6.0 with injector issues. So I will spend what some people call wasted money to keep a clean oil and fuel system.

Haha, I am at 16K and I don't think I have had my third oil change yet! Or fuel filter, but I think I might do that in the next few months.

We always base oil and fuel filter changes on hours, not mileage so the actual mileage at a oil change on any of our 6.0's or 6.4's can range from under 1000km to over 12,000km based on 200 hour intervals.

We do not have any 6.0's left in the fleet but I kept a 06 6.0 as my winter beater and with 178,000+ miles (286,000+km and 7k+ hours) it has had a FICM replaced under warranty even though it was way out of warranty due to mileage and it looks like it needs a second EGR valve as well now. Otherwise it is on all its original engine bits and it is the most troublesome 6.0 we have had but we did not have any 03 or 04 6.0s either...

Does anyone know how to drain water off the fuel filters, or where it collects?

There is a drain on the HFCM aka frame rail mounted low pressure fuel pump aka lift pump.

Has Ford changed the metal drain plug on the 11 trucks ? Or does it get eaten away like they do on the 6.0 and 6.4 trucks ?

I change my oil every 10k and fuel filter at 15k

I have changed my oil at every 10k interval and my fuel filter at 15k. I have 31k on my 2011 since June of 2010 when I bought. No issues. Just keep up the maintenance and use the Ford Fuel filters and cetane booster!!
