Replace fuel filter

Replaced my fuel filter today and it took care of the hard start.old one still said ford so it probably original.seems to have better throttle response and possible hp.guess the injectors are getting proper fuel now.i google it and says to change them annually,does this sound correct to anyone?

You should change them out every year yes. Also your injectors themselves are likely clogged up somewhat as well. You should have seen the originals I pulled out of my 95 and that was back in 2007 lol.

Can you clean the injectors without messing them up?

Fuel filter every 15k to 20k miles.

Id send the injectors out to be cleaned and tested. There is a tiny fuel filter inside of them that should be replaced that everyone overlooks.
I recently used mrinjector.com and was very pleased with the results.

My injectors were falling apart. There was no cleaning them. I got some remanufactured 24s for under $200 on eBay and the car ran way better.

Normally, an original set is your best bet. Some of the ebay injectors can be badly mismatched as far as spray patterns and flow goes.

I have that filter, it's a replaceable element filter, the last filter you have to buy. Just replace the elements
