There is what they call a sock in the fuel tank, it is attached on the bottom of the fuel pump.


Someone told me there is a cartridge filter that takes a round filter like a miny air filter, looked but didn't see it!


If you had a pickup with dual tanks then yes it would be true, but you have a Bronco with one big fuel tank. Are getting a poor fuel flow and pressure loss?

No fuel pressure is fine. The original proble m started when I added fuel injector cleaner, it plugged fuel filter!! I think there is gunk in my fuel tank that broke loose and plugged filter!! Replaced filter and all was good,after a few days it started sputtering again. What do you think??

I had a 95 Eddie Bauer Bronco that just got some crud pumped into it's tank, I wound up pulling the tank and getting it steamed cleaned to get all the crud out. I went through 3 fuel filters before I decided to do pull the tank, after that it ran as it always did.


Thanks Tennishoes I see a little steam cleaning in my future!!!
