The filter, with these engines, is located amidships on the left frame rail. The filter should be changed either every 15,000 mi. (24,000 km), or 15 months, whichever comes first. The filter should also be changed whenever a fuel delivery module is replaced.
CAUTION To prevent siphoning of fuel from the tank when the filter is removed, raise and support the front end of the truck above the level of the tank.
