I have over 50,000 miles on my 2002 Crew Cab Duramax Diesel, w/ Allison Series 1000 Transmission. I change my fuel filter three times a year. I have had no problems with OE filter, and at changing the filter appears to be in good shape. Change often and run Premium Diesel Fuel and you will have little to worry about. And always remember Real Trucks don't have spark plugs, Drive ON! Edited by: Dustin
I was fueling up the other day and noticed the guy waiting behind me was driving a 2002 DMAX. I just had to ask if he'd had any problems. He said no problems at all! He proudly said he changed his first fuel filter at 30000 miles. His truck had 52000 miles on it and his next filter change would be at 60000 miles. He said this 30000 mile filter change was what GM recomended.??
?? I didn't have the heart to tell him about the discussions we have on this forum.------Phil
I have to agree with Crusher, that changing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles could be disasteris. The mechanic and the guy at the parts place where I get my filters, said that he recommends a minimum of four times a year. One thing about this, you probably can't change it to much. Drive On!
