Any advice on changing the fuel filter on an '03 Ram 2500 5.9L Cummins? The only filter mentioned in my maintenance book is the fuel/water separator. Is this the only stock fuel filter on this model? Is there any trick to installing a refill?

Thanks.

Drain it, change the filter, crank it over a few seconds. Should start right up. Might die, then just restart. should be done!!!

That's the only filter on our trucks. Good luck! I put a home brew filter setup on mine with spin on filters under the truck so I don't have to mess with the stock filter.

fuel filter

Thanks for the response. I just wanted to be sure. I popped the top on it, but wasn't sure I was in the right place.

I'll give it a go. I just started burning biodiesel and will probably be needing the change it a couple of times during the first couple of tank fulls.
