How often do you change the fuel filter? Mine has about 5000 miles and says the fuel filter has about 60% left. Should I change it before my upcoming 2500 mile trip? Is it the same filter as the 2005's?
you must go threw a lot of oil trans and diffs every 10,000 miles that seems really premature and a waste of money and 2500-3000 miles for oil that is not that long eitherI've always changed my fuel filter every 5000mi or before a long trip, changed the oil every 2500 to 3000 miles, tranny fluid every 10,000 miles and diff fluids every 10,000 miles. Still waiting for "The silver Fox" to be dealer delivered. Never have had a problem.
I changed my fuel filter for the first time at 10k miles & cut it open to see how bad it was. It was only about half used up, but I got a good idea of how long I could go between changes. Why don't you go ahead & change it now. Cut open the old filter with a hacksaw, or better yet, get a filter cutter. You'll get a general idea of how long you can go between changes. Just don't push it too far, & don't forget to keep a spare fuel filter in the truck in case you get a bad load of fuel somewhere, especially on the 2500 mile trip you'll be taking.How often do you change the fuel filter?

that's what I was thinking. my last work 1 ton had 299k miles on it changed the rear end once @ 200k trans. about every 50k & oil 4-5k. when I turned the truck in @ 299k it still ran fine, a little weak but still ran fine. how many can say that about a 93 454ci.you must go threw a lot of oil trans and diffs every 10,000 miles that seems really premature and a waste of money and 2500-3000 miles for oil that is not that long either
For the prices the stealer is getting for the filter & labor, they will almost always recomend a change. Check their price then go where you can buy it for around $35. & 20 mins of your time,change your own when it needs it.You might want to consider getting it changed. I was talking to my SM this morning and mentioned that the last couple or three times I got on it to get on the freeway, it bogged for a second or so and then accelerated. I told him there was 5450 miles on it and he said mine might need a filter change. He just changed one on another DMax at 4320. I'm not certain mine was a fuel filter, but it was a noticeable bog down.
