Default Which fuel filter for '95 Camry 5SFE

The type of fuel filter which is recommended for my car is the Ryco Z424. However there is a Ryco multifit fuel filter which is the Z441 which says it replaces the Z424 along with a few other filters. Apparently they're the same filter with different brackets but I'm not sure if it will work or not because I've never changed a fuel filter before.



Here are the 2 filters:


Z424 (recommended): http://www.allpartsautomotive.com.au.../PICS/Z424.JPG
Z441 (multifit): http://www.allpartsautomotive.com.au.../PICS/Z441.JPG


Will the multifit work?

Assuming given the Z424 is outrageously expensive, your trying to save a few dollars.

Either should work.

The outlet thread size for the multifit appears incorrect per the Ryco website. Should be same as Z424.

Search Part : Ryco Fuel Filter | Z441 Fuel Filter :: Ryco Filters :: Automotive Filters Australia

If you still want the Z424 shop other AU sites. The price should be comparable to the Z441. The listed price at the site for the Z424 is outrageous!

A few tips.

If the engine running normally might reconsider changing the fuel filter as rarely does the filter need changing.

The fuel fittings can be extremely tight! Many owners have rounded off the wrench flats or even twisted the fuel line trying to loosen them. Suggest using a tube wrench making sure the filter is held firmly so as not to rotate.

Be sure to install new crush washers (should come with filter). Reusing old ones can result in leaks.

The fuel filter system will still be pressurized when you loosen the line fittings. If possible wait tell engine is cold and wrap cloth around fitting to catch fuel that will come out.

Thanks for the tips!

Well over here in Aus the Z441 ($25) is less than half the price of the Z424 ($60)..
