So I suppose one of these years I ought to change the two engine fuel filters on my E-TEC....
I have a big Volvo filter by the tank (as fitted by Mannings) and there is also a filter on the engine. I have both for the service that ahem might have been due last year
been rather a lot going on and regrettably little boat use.
Question: does the E-TEC have any major issues with getting airlocks/air in the fuel system, particularly if you change both filters at the same time, or is there some sort of vapour separator on the engine fuel system? I can obviously bleed it up to the primary filter with the primer bulb and the bleed screw on top of the filter body, and I've drained the primary several times before to confirm there's no muck in the bottom of it.
I'm slightly concerned about air in the system leading to a stoppage a few minutes after setting off and not really too sure if I need to bleed anything on the engine. I suspect it isn't a problem but could somebody confirm this for me?
