So not knowing any better I went to my local napa and picked up a fuel filter without hesitation. It rode under the back seat for a couple weeks until I got time to change it, whch is today. I already had the passenger side wheel liner pulled halfway off to drain the coolant(which really makes a terrible mess by the way) and looked up and said hey this is a great time to change that fuel filter! this should take about 3 minutes! So I took the old filter off and threw it in the trash, got the new filter out from under the back seat and opened the box...what the hell is this plastic crap? Oh well they don't make things like they used to. went to put the wif sensor in and had to wrench it the whole way on! The threads must have been cut wrong or something because it spun right out of the filter that I took off(which said ac delco on it by the way) anyway I finally got it screwed in there and spun it onto the housing...primed it up and bled it and checked for leaks...guess what...it leaks! Apparently I had to use so much force to get the sensor screwed in that I deformed the sealing surface. So I tried to unscrew my sensor and in doing so it cracked. Luckily the wife was already in town and I had her go to the dealer and get a new filter and sensor. I will install it in the morning. Congrats napa you lost a customer when it comes to fuel filters.

This was YOUR fault for installing it incorrectly. Nothing wrong with the filter. You should never have to wrench the thing on. HAND TIGHT. The only thing you should have to LIGHTLY snug with a wrench would be the WIF sensor but I mean LIGHTLY snug. I've been runing NAPA Gold filters for years and never a problem. They have good stuff that meets or exceeds the manufacture recommendations.

This isn't Napa's fault, but I wouldn't run a Napa filter either.
