Changing fuel filter

I just change fuel filters. I ve primed the system the same way I did as the last time I changed filters. I had the truck running then didnít drive it for a couple of days. Today I went to drive it and it kept turning over but didnít want to crank. Finally I got it start and drove it around. It runs fine but every time I go to crank it it just turns over and over then cranks. I keep hearing a gurgling noise coming from where the filter housing is. I busted the old filter housing so I bought a new which is shorter than the oem one. I donít know if that has anything to do with it or not. F250 6.7 powerstroke 2016

One of the times I changed mine I didn't get the bowl on all the way. I primed it as I should have but when I went to start it the engine cranked for an excessive time before finally catching. After driving a while I got the dash message "Low Fuel Pressure" and heard the gurgling sound. That was cured when I tightened up the bowl all the way. No issues since, been a few months.
I have never heard of a aftermarket "shorter housing" so I have no idea if that is the issue.
If nothing else has changed aside from the short housing you should get the OEM and see if that cures whats ailing your truck.

getting air in there somewhere. I'd think the aftermarket bowl is to blame as well.

If the replacement cap you purchased has any other part number other than the correct part number of FC4Z-9G270-A, which is exclusively for 2016 model year F-Series Super Duty trucks equipped with the 6.7L engine, remove it and return it to install the correct cap. Yes, I know 2011 to 2015 model years use the same cap, but for some interesting reason, Ford changed it up in 2016 for the last model year of this body before going into the 2017 model years with the aluminum body style and the in-tank fuel conditioning module and filter.

The part number in the above image is indeed the correct part number for a 2016 truck. It's possible the OP ordered the correct part number but was given the wrong part. It's also possible this site below does not have the latest information on the 2016 part number.

To add more confusion to the crazy part numbers for this item. I had my local Ford Parts Distribution Center order a spare cap for my 2016. My sales rep used my VIN to order the part. Part number on the box is GC3Z-9G270-A. Actual Part # stamped on the bottom of the cap is Bowl FC44-9G270 with a manufacture date of 6/16. Compared this to my factory cap, it is identical in every way.
