I have a 1988 Ford F150 6cylinder pickup, what size fuel filter do I need

Asked by Jun 18, 2012 at 05:01 PM about the 1988 Ford F-150

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ford F150, 1988, 6 cylinder pickup
Truck bucks when going uphill. I used fuel injection cleaner, and it cleared up for a while, and then started bucking again. I think I need to replace the fuel filter. To my surprise, the truck has a carburator and is not fuel injected, as I thought. What could be causing the truck to buck? It isn't getting enough fuel for an uphill climb. What is the best course of action to clear this problem up?

if you have fuel injection you probably have a special steel cannister fuel filter with little clips on the filter and lines, stop at the parts store and get one if you never have changed it. cant hurt, you could also have two fuel pumps on that old of a truck.
