When should I change my fuel filter? I have an 01 RS and 40k miles on it... Yea I know its alot of miles. But I have not changed my filter yet but I do all the other mantaince on it.... So can anyone help me out?
I think that is one of the things they change when they do a 30k tune up. Or at least they should for the ammount they charge...anyway if you've had the 30k tune up you should be good I think. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Check your owners manual, it should list all the suggested intervals for changes. I had my tranny and diff fluid changed at ~10k miles, but I know that is far short of the recommended interval. I just figured that iff the engine needs break-in time, and sheds little bits of metal durring that time, the tranny and diffs probably do, too. Might not have been necessary, but it was good for peace of mind, and couldn't hurt anything.
all that stuff (plus brakes, air filter, etc) should have been done at 30k, unless you drive hard like i do, hence i did mine at 24k. the fuel filter is easy. its right in by the washer fluid resivour. the lines can sometimes be a bitch to get off, but pliers, a towel, and a friend will solve the problem. and don't worry, not too much fuel comes out.
Dam, Well looks like I know where this check is goin to go. And does anyone know about the tranny fluid? I do drive hard and even harder then I should. But like I if you don't drive hard then don't drive at all.
