    Default S-T-U-M-P-E-R... filter?

    I am replacing the filter under the driver door frame. The outlet was facing the tank- shouldn't it face the engine?

    If your referring to the fuel filter, theres a arrow or the word FLOW on the filter and it should face the engine.

    Yes, sorry the fuel filter. There is no word flow or arrow, only the word OUTLET stamped on one end.

    Outlet towards the engine!

    Thanks, I thought that was right. I read a thread on this forum saying outlet of filter toward rear?!?!

    Inlet will be tank side and outlet engine side on any car you will ever work on.

    Outlet, arrow, engine all get pointed towards the engine. Stick with a reputable company on this filter. The Chinese filters are cheaper but have less filtering capacity.
    Personally I like Wix for all my filters. Especially oil. When 41of43 NASCAR cars on the track choose Wix I am convinced it can handle the extremes.

    Or maybe it's just good product placement and a number of other filters can do just as well? Food for thought...
