  1. Duramax Sixth Generation: 2017-2019 (L5P)
    I have had this truck just short of a year. I have driven it a couple thousand miles. The oil is ready for a oil change because it’s been a year since it was last changed and the fuel filter has 60% left according to the DIC. Would I be better off to change the oil and fuel filter on the same...
  2. Duramax Seventh Generation: 2020+ (L5P)
    I just changed my fuel filter for the first time @ 15000 miles. Wow what a pleasure compared to previous versions. The self priming was really nice, no pushing on the plunger until fuel leaked out of the vent.
  3. Duramax Second Generation: 2004.5-2005 (LLY)
    Short story version: Truck sat for two weeks while I waited on parts and time to swap out steering gearbox, pitman arm, and tie rods. That all went fine. Went to take it to the shop today and it stalled out, found that it lost prime. Got it running again and got another 2-3 miles before it...
  4. Duramax Second Generation: 2004.5-2005 (LLY)
    Hey, All. My search didn't show anything recent about this current filter, so I'm wondering what the going opinion is on it. I have to admit, I'm skeptical of it since I can see right down the throat of it and out the ass end. What's the going word on it. Thanks, everyone.
  5. Duramax Fourth Generation: 2007.5-2010 (LMM)
    So I keep getting a change fuel filter on the DIC. I’m unsure of what’s going on it’s a 2008 deleted with a fassfuel, running on a single tune sometimes it will go into reduced engine power due to this filter had 5000k miles replaced earlier today with a new one but same issue anything??? I’m...
  6. 6.2L Diesel Engine
    Hi. Just got my 1985 C10 with 6.2L and trying to figure out what has been disconnected behind air filter - there are two steel lines and one electrical wire/connector. Is this aftermarket fuel filter? One line is most likely coming from fuel pump. The original fuel filter is disconnected.
  7. Duramax Fifth Generation: 2011-2016 (LML)
    Today i went to go change the fuel filter on my truck but forgot to pressure the system and turned it on. It stayed on for 10 seconds and stalled out. Went on to prime with screw closed and got all air out. Did it like 5 times. Checked the Schrader valve and it had some air in it too. Did that...
  8. 6.5L Diesel Engine
    I am running a 1993 LP to feed my 1996 6.5L, there are no problems with fuel supply other than those expected with stock LPs(none yet for my use on flat ground). I have experience with boat engines, and we would always attach a "fuel water separator" somewhere inline before fuel gets to the...
  9. 6.2L Diesel Engine
    Hi everyone. Thanks for reading and any help. I can change bolts but am terrible at diagnosing and if your able to explain things very simply I may be able to figure this out and fix it. I have a 1983 Chevy k10 6.2 that I recently picked up and have already replaced the starter, and batterys. I...
  10. Maintenance & Fluids
    I recently purchased a fuel filter from Amazon. Normally I get the white AC Delco filters from the dealer, but received a blue one from Amazon. The design looks different, mainly that you can see straight through it. Before I install it, I just wanted confirmation that this is not a...
  11. Vans
    How often do most of you change fuel filters on your diesel engines? The owner's manual calls for 22,500-mile fuel filter changes, the Chevy dealer recommended 10,000-mile filter changes. I've read a couple of articles and some guys are recommending waiting until the computer says to change...
  12. Maintenance & Fluids
    I recently changed my fuel filter and I used the Carquest filter PN R86960 (Metal fuel filter). On the way home I went to pass someone and the truck wouldn't make it around the other car. I instantly got an alert saying to change the filter and the engine light came on. The code was low fuel...
