Fuel Filter

I have about 9500 on my SS just wondering when is a good time to change the fuel filter?

The best time to change the fuel filter is during the middle of the day when there is plenty of light and it's warmer than at night time.

That's funny right therr.

Am curious about the recommended, though. Might have to change mine now, since I bought my car used. Probably never been done.

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"

It is not designed to be replaced/serviced. It is integral with the fuel pump. Only way to get a new one is to buy a new pump...

Well, it does have a filter/screen/contaminant container. It is just incorporated into the pump and not sold separately....

MidnightSSS,

Yeah, I knew what you meant but I couldn't resist. I'm a wiseass at heart and that makes for some very unusual anatomical variations and confuses my primary care physician!
