The fuel filter on your LCF is located in the secondary fuel filter housing located in the engine compartment. The lid comes off and the filter element is inside. See it in the link below.

Have you scanned the system to see if there are any fault codes setting?

wont talk to scanner
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
if it would it would be nice
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago

The common cause for this type of no start on this engine is usually a failing High Pressure Oil Pump or the Injection Pressure Regulator (IPR) but in most cases the computer will set and store a fault code. Have you tried a different scan tool to be sure its not the scanner?

do you have pic of location of ipr
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago

Before you check it make sure the DLC power fuse is in place and has power in and out of it. The fuse is the F1-31 fuse located in the engine compartment.

any way to check high pressure oil pump scanner will not talk to truck because do not have software
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago

Can you get your hands on a scanner that will pull the codes. Knowing the codes will direct you to what needs to be checked, there is no way of know if the IPR has failed with out starting with the code scan. I have gone ahead and enclosed the step to check the HPOP as well as the IPR in the link below.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.
