Hi. Changing the fuel filter on my focus at the weekend. 

I have the paper element type rather than the metal body filter that the fiesta 1.5tdci has.

Before I go ahead with this, can anyone tell me if the focus still suffers the old problem of not priming itself etc and bad stating after a filter change? 

I have seen on a few places that the new focus model and mine in particular has a electrical pump so will prime itself after leaving ignition on for a minute or so before starting? Is this true?

Depends how old your focus is. Or emmisions level . 

Edit. Just had a look and 1.5 tdci should have a pump regardless of age. The ones I've done ,17,67 plate have had pump. Just switch ign on for 40secs.
