Re: Oil in Fuel Filter???
If you can, I'd replace the mechanical fuel pump. Since they seem to have a history of going bad at just over 110k -- especially if the truck has sat unused for several months -- you might want to do this just to be safe.
Remember, if you do it yourself, DO NOT touch or press on the pump arm as you may damage the diaphragm on your new pump. Don't ask why I know this...
Also, check and change your oil, if you haven't already. Keeping a close eye on the oil (raises in level, sudden thinness and an unpleasant increase in engine noise) until you can change the fuel pump might be a good idea if replacing the pump cannot be done right now. Hey, if it is okay, why screw with it?
