Re: Fuel Filter Replacement Guide

Changed the fuel filter, oil filter, air filter and rotated and had the tires rebalanced.
Here is a good Youtube


It pretty much tells it all. I drained the fuel out of the bleeder until nothing came out. Phillips screw drive is all that is needed. Then remove the filters using a 1 1/16" socket. Expect to get 5-6 ozs of fuel draining out of both filters. I just used fuel to lube the O rings. Reinstalled the filters and tightened.


I used the procedure to fill the filters but it still died. Restart with minimal cranking work just fine.

Re: Fuel Filter Replacement Guide

i'm amazed there is isn't a skid plate for the fuel housing?

i know you 3.0 guys can purchase the DEF skid but fuel housing looks like it could be knocked off!

Re: Fuel Filter Replacement Guide

I am planning to change the fuel filters on our 2016 JGC with 3.0 diesel.

I have found what I think are two sets of instructions, one for current 3.0 diesels and one for pre 2014 versions. I am confused by this set of instructions:
http://www.wk2jeeps.com/engine/2014_...uel_filter.pdf

The instructions are for a 2014 3.0 diesel and involve removing fuel filter shield, fuel/water inlet fuel line, water in fuel sensor harness connector, and the fuel/water separator assembly.

Is this a correct set of instructions for the 2014 and is this what I need to do on our 2016?

Thx

Re: Fuel Filter Replacement Guide

Those instructions are for changing the complete unit. All that is required is to remove the two filter elements 27mm hex socket. If you have the full set of skid plates you will have to remove the one protecting the housing assembly first.

Re: Fuel Filter Replacement Guide

Fuel filter changes are pretty easy on the ecodiesel. Besides a slight mess that is inherent when working with diesel fuel I found it very straightforward to change at 30k. I might start doing it every 20k as added insurance.

After I seen how black and nasty mine were at 25 K,I decided that would be the max length of miles for me. Plugged or dirty filters are the 1st thing to look for if it ever starts running a little rough. Ecoguard sells these filters pretty cheap so no reason not to change as necessary....
