My '88 Chevy necessary 5 inline filter replacements end 87,000 mile (first one at 3000). I had to change the pump just prior to trading. The price for instead of the pump (tank removal) was about $500 compared to a $12 DIY filter job.


Why the helll would GM placed the filter inside? i hope I'm missing some development that renders filter alters a point of the past, yet I can't imagine what. I'm concerned this is walk to it is in an ongoing issue as long as I own the truck. Also if the brand-new filters go double as long, it's quiet a tank removal job (and tow) every 30,000 miles.


What's the consensus? Anybody had a clogged filter in your '04 or newer truck?

Lifetime parts are good marketing - consumers think they're conserving money through not having to have actually the component serviced, dealers still charge the same prices as when they did company the part during regimen maintenance, and the manufacturers charge much more for the replacement parts.


Everybody wins except us



If you take the filter out of the tank then the pump will certainly pump dirty fuel and die quickly. The returnless mechanism is really trouble free. Dont waste the moment or money, numerous trucks & car have way over 150K top top OEM mounted pumps.


'pineland' there isnt money in fuel filters that YOU deserve to change, take it it come the an excellent ole GM Goodwrench! but you have the right to take the one the end of your tank and include one you yourself if friend desired.
