Subject: Fuel Filter Replacement
IP: Logged

Message:
Hey guys got a question for ya... I am looking at changing my fuel filter and I don't want to replace the whole pump setup. I talked with our good old friends at NAPA and they told me that they did not just carry the fuel filter but I could get it from the Dealership. I talked to the Dealer and he was kind of an ***. He told me that I had to buy the whole setup and it cost about 4 bills and some change. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

You have to buy the entire assembly. Try Napa or
partsamerica.com for prices. You need to know what size tank
you have also. Those are the only options I know of next to
going to a wrecker. But you don't want to go to a wrecker do
you? www.car-part.com if you do.

It's a 99 RC with a 22 gallon tank. I did some research before I started this thread and I did see the one you were talking about. That is a possibility but... I don't exactly feel comfortable making mods to my fuel line. I have seen a steady decline in my MPG and I check the fuel pressure and it's comming out strong at the injectors, which made me think that the fuel just wasn't very good when it got there.

I'd like to hear what your solution is. I have the same issues you
do with MPG.

Tank filter is NOT the problem !
You " are getting good pressure "
Problem is possible - sensors , air filter
lack of ' cool air ' for intake
choice of oils/lubricants
Or [crappy] gas = I just read a post
in { performance } I think , where
someone was saying " poor quality local gas "
He had " filled up out of State and noticed
both a performance boost and MPG increase "

The slowly decreasing fuel mileage sounds like the front O2 sensor in need of repalacing or the catcon beginning to stop up.

Worn ignition components will affect good mileage. Is it time for new sparkplugs, coil, cap, rotor, or ignition wires? It's a 10 min job to check and see. Also take a look at your brakes and see if they're draggin on the rotors and/or drums. A sticking caliper or cylinder will drag the brakes and score the surface. Thats another easy to check deal. Hows the Air filter look?

Air filter is clean. New Plugs wires cap and rotor as far as the coil I have not replaced it. Checked the calipers and it seems as if they are moving just fine. The o2 sensor to my knowledge has never been replaced so I might change that and see if it solved any of my problems.

Stay away from Shell gas , at least the 87
octane - additives are meant more for older
engines pre-1985 , also their additives
will ' eat away' at your fuel sender unit
in tank

Well that would explain it that is where I get gas. I always thought shell had good gas but I guess not.

How do you figure out that sort of info? Up here in NB we have ESSO and Irving for gas and I own a 1989 dak so would Shell be better to use? What about switching to a higher octane level? What would be the main advantages and disadvantages doing so?

Filter is available seperately from Mopar only. Part number I have here is 04798825AC for my 01 Dakota 3.9. It's not cheap, about a 100 bucks, and you have to pull the tank to install it.

Where do people come up with crap about gasoline, such as "their gas is formulated for older engines"?
and it "will eat away at your sending unit".

What a load of crap.

Now if you can provide documented proof of this then I will eat my words.

I'm not looking for a salt shaker any time soon.

The in-tank filter isn't a micro fiber type. It's a simple screen.
I think. The square openings are roughly 0.5mm on a side. I
would suggest if you're having issues with a clogged filter the
problem is bigger than just the filter. I recently replaced my
fuel pump, I had 260k miles on it and the filter was fine. It
was dark orange from varnish, but certainly non-resetictive.

How do you replace a fuel filter on a 1998 Dakots 3WD? If, you have to drop the fuel tank, how do you do that as well.
