No real need to worry about replacing the fuel filter. It a million kilometer filter. Unless you somehow dump dirt in the tank you shouldn't ever need to replace.

Some people refuse let go the need to replace things that don't need replacing.

Why do you want to replace it? Or add a second pointless one down stream?

Gen I 2.7l the fuel filter was below the fuel rail on the intake side. Hard to replace DIY.

It's a 2-year, 24k mile maintenance item for $120, just follow the maintenance schedule. Flush your radiator at the same time. It's not all that much money . . .

Good read.

A member recently had his tank punched by a fuel thief. He posted a photo of the inside of the old tank.... had around 60k on it.
Perfectly clean. If it weren't for the smell of gasoline, I'd have eaten off of it.

Funny you should mentio "dump dirt" last sat dats exactly what i had coming out of the fuel line going into the fuel rail. Add to that blackend fuel, burnt dirt filled one year old spark plugs and soot driping out the tailpipe. LST the symptom was it would turn over allday but would not start. Solution replaced sparkplugs installed a fuel filter pre fuel rail i figure what could it hurt. Been runing fine since. See my job requires i drive through some very dirty mudy crapyass construction roads year long so perhaps my (service intervals) are quite diffrent than norm. First time it hapend ill have to stay on top of my maintanence in the future.
