Hey,

I was running thru some maintenance checks on my truck ('99 5.2L - 123K miles) this weekend and was wondering about the change interval for the filter. I did have to replace the pump a little less than two years ago (at about 100K miles). I've read in several places that you should change the filter once a year, change it at 30K miles, 100K miles, and I have read 'only change it if you are having problems'.

I'm not having in problems, but I want to keep a better schedule on the maintenance so hopefully I can keep driving it for another 7 to 8 years.

What do you all use as a reference for fuel filter replacements?

Thanks,
Jason

That's the only solution. It's a bad design.

there are 2 filters in the system, large and small particulate, the large one is on the bottom of the pump and could feasably be popped off and cleaned but its not going to help shit, the small one is in the metallic thing on top of the pump, it also is the regulator, you could always get tricky and get an aluminum plate machined and drop it on top and use that screw to hold it down and then rock an external system but that is $$$.

Thanks All...

I think I'll go with changing it only when I have fuel problems. I does seem like a bad design.

thanks for your input,

When I dropped my fuel tank, I ended up cracking the fuel filter/regualtor on top of the pump, and I was able to get a replacement at a local dodge dealer. If you don't have to change it, then don't. Just a pain in the a$$.
