Return line filter is plugged up Bytor.



I wondered what that was. I did't see it described in the service manual. I'll do a quick test this weekend and bypass it to see if that changes things.. Thanks for the tip!

The return line filter is meant to Dampen Silent the Fuel pressure regulator in operation.
The 1985-86 C4 had complaints of return line drumming & banging noises.
It was an Old TSB.
1988-96 Did without it.

Yep, I think I remember reading about that somewhere. I don't remember it looking like the one pictured above. The last time I was under the car replacing the primary fuel filter, I thought I remember seeing it but it was axial, not like the one in the pic above. I will check it out regardless.

The replacement filter is an expensive sucker.

It is a Farm Grain Truck Fuel filter actually Bytor.
Nothing exotic.
I have a spare AC Delco filter element put away.
Bottom spins off. Disposable filter inside.
Should be able to cross over to a WIX #.
Find it for you tonight & post my spare filter element.
