I have a 2011 Ford F-250 super duty recently did the fuel filters, upper and lower. After starting it the fuel filter inside the engine bay whines and the fuel lines vibrates. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks Beau

Remove the filters and check the o-rings sound like one is damaged and drawing air into the fuel system. During assembly they should be lubed and seated properly. Once you confirm that it may take several key starts and cycle before the system clears out any trapped air

I replaced all the hoses at the engine filter thinking I may have nicked one of the O rings at the connections and have done the filter at the frame 3 times twice by me and had a mechanic try thinking I missed some thing, he did the frame filter and same noise after he was done. Runs fine just want to figure out why the noise under the hood is there.

Did you use Motorcraft filters? The lower filter must not have any gap between the housing and the cap. I have never seen the issue you are having
