    Looking at doing some maintenance this saturday and shopping online.

    I see two different motorcraft fuel filters to choose from. One has two ports and one has three

    FG-1036 has three ports
    FG-986B has two ports

    without crawling under my car in the rain, anyone have a quick answer?

    Its a 2006 XLT 4wd.

    Look under the Expy and see what you have ? But if the production date is after 7/06 you would use the 3 port 1036 filter. Prior to that it is just the 986 style.
