Fuel filter gets hot to the touch (Good or Bad)
I'm needing to know if it is normal for a fuel filter to get hot. I had to put a fuel filter on my car yesterday and when I went to hold it to unscrew the fuel line from the filter it was on the warm side, I had to grab a shop rag so I could get the line loose from the filter. So is it normal for them to get this way or is there another problem that is causing it to get warm like maybe an issue with the fuel pump or maybe something else. Even if I just go around the corner to due something small it get hot pretty fast. Today I took the highway to work and I checked it when I got to work and man it may have burnt my hand if I had left in on there. So is it normal or not for this to happen.
