Can anyone tell me where the fuel filter is located on a 2007 nitro sxt?? Ive been googling it and cant seem to find an exact answer.
Hi nitrogen,The fuel pressure regulator and the main fuel filter are combined within the fuel pump module
the fuel filter normaly last the life of the fuel pump.
OK i have finally fitted a new after market fuel filter. I have put the car battery on charge to get it 100% before i start cranking the engine. I have also turned the key a few times to allow fuel to fill the fuel lines. is their anything else i might need to know or be aware of 🤨...?100k is way too much. And yes, it can cause your problems.
Just an FYI the engine maintenance schedule for the 2.8 CRD says to change the fuel filter every 40,000 Km or 24 months.Hi nitrogen,
I own a CRD 2.8 engine (As stated below in my signature) how often shall I change my fuel filter? I can’t find information on this. I bought the car at approx 50,000 on the clock it’s now approximately 150,000 on the clock I don’t think the filter has been changed since.... could this be my current cause of fuel not getting to my engine?
Easiest way to bleed the filter is to disconnect upper fuel connection and turn on igntion few times.
Thanks Jan for the quick reply and clarification on the ignition cycling, no cranking and leaving the filter unfilled on installation. Once more to be clear regarding which connection, when you write upper connection, do you mean the one at the very top of of the housing, the black cloth covered cable/hose and NOT the one that my drawn yellow arrow is pointing to?Just remove upper connection and cycle ignition on-off till fuel comes out. Do not crank, air will go to the high pressure pump. I would not recommend filling the filter prior installation as some unfiltered fuel gets to the wrong side of filter element and injectors are extremely sensitive to dirt.
