6.7 fuel filter

After 45k miles I think I need to be changin my factory fuel filter on my 07 2500. I was told by a dodge dealership on ebay that sinse it was my first filter change I would need to purchase the entire fuel filter housing assembly (70 bucks). They told me after I "upgraded" my filter housing I could then get away with just purchaseing the filter element (15 bucks). Is this a true fact or is someone giving me the run around here? Thanks in advance for your help!

Your suppose to change every 15 k. And yes you need new housing. The extra filter is 35 bucks. The 5.9 fuel is like 20.

Sounds like the right story. They upgraded the fuel filter from 7 micron to 5
somewhere mid 08, and that is the only filter available now. You need a new
shell + filter the first time, and then you can change just the element.

Don't wait for another 45k to change it. Change it every 15k.

45k miles??!!! Wow, you're lucky that the truck still starts! I've seen several trucks (including my own) with less than 20k on the filter have driveability problems. Definitely stay on top of it more next time around or you could have trouble.

Hopefully you change your oil every 4000-5000 miles if that's the case.

Filters are cheap, fuel systems aren't. I don't see why anyone would risk expensive repairs by going beyond the 15k mile interval unless they simply didn't know it needed to be replaced at that interval.

If you bought it new and didn't change the fuel filter ever then your truck shouldn't be running right now.

And it is in your owner's manual in the maintenance section...

Quote:
15,000 Miles (24,000 km) or 12 Months Maintenance Service
Schedule
❏ When prompted by the Engine Oil Indicator System, the engine oil and filter must be
changed. If not prompted by the Engine Oil Indicator System within 7,500 miles
(12 000 km) or 6 months since the last oil and filter change, change the engine oil and
engine oil filter. Under no circumstances should oil change intervals exceed 7,500 miles
(12 000 km) or 6 months, whichever comes first.
❏ Rotate tires.
❏ Lubricate front drive shaft fitting (4x4).
❏ Lubricate outer tie rod ends.
❏ Change front axle fluid (Ram Truck/Chassis Cab 4x4).
❏ Change rear axle fluid (Ram Truck Only).
Replace fuel filter element.


Every other oil change is how I do it, easy way to remember too.
