Default fuel filter banjo bolt ?

when you tighten the banjo bolt on top of the fuel filter, the holes are supposed to line up with the hose that goes to the fuel rail right? how do you make sure these stupid *** holes line up? i turned my key to the acc so the fuel pump primed, and fuel came squirting out of the banjo bolt area. i wanna figure out why.

Did you replace the metal seals when you changed the filter??

No the holes do not have to be inline
You are just missing the cruch washers or the old ones need to be replaced

No. You'll notice if you pull it off that there's a space around where the holes are on the banjo bolt, so fuel will flow anyway.

ok. i took the banjo bolt off, put teflon paste on it, retorqued it to spec and it still sprays fuel. only this time, it sprays it in a different direction than last time. what could this possibly be? could it be that my fuel pressure is too high? i have a fpr which i don't know what the setting is on.

Are you sure you have both crush washers? one in between the filter and fuel line, and than another between the fuel line and the banjo bolt

If you are using crush washers and not plane old washers and it's tq to helms
then every thing should be cool.
Do the banjo bolt or fitting have any marks on them I mean is the crush washer

i would think that they are making good contact. i have no idea what could be wrong. could it be that the banjo bolt is broken under the head (since that's where it's spraying from)? i can't see any holes or anything though. i'm totally stumped.
