Serviced my Camry sportive 2004 model, changed oil, filter,

Customer Question
Hi, serviced my Camry...

Hi, serviced my Camry sportive 2004 model, changed oil, filter, air filter and now it is running rough? Should I had replaced the fuel filter as well? Was good before the service.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the fuel filter an external one, or is it inside the tank?

External.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Camry yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. I have run injector cleaner through it. We are out iin the country not easy to get a mechanic here. It did run low on fuel before going into town.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No not really. I can't think of anything else that could have made it run so rough.
