    so really where is the fuel filter on an 04 6.0

    standard escalade 2004 6.0L

    I have had this fuel filter for it floating around my garage for the last year and half. I figure its time to change it, lol. Not the one in the tank but that one that is supposed be in the wheel well?

    I have looked probably 20x over the last yearish and never been able to find it. Really starting to drive me nuts.

    Rock Auto still list an external fuel filter for an 04' 6.0L Escalade, ESV & EXT

    Its on the frame rail in the area of the drivers door, not the wheel well. Should have a threaded fitting on both ends. If fittings are rusty make sure
    you use some PB Blaster first.

    so what's the recommendation for 04+ Escalade owners who want to do this bit of maintenance? I've looked under mine as well and did not see any filter, however, changing a fuel filter is part of regular maintenance. Not to mention the fact that I'd like to be able to squeeze as many miles as I can out of each gallon of gas I get.

    There is no filter, they were deleted on trucks in '04.
    The only filter is the strainer in the tank and it is serviced as part of the pump.
    When the pump dies you get a new one.
    Doesn't seem to be an issue.

    Some parts catalogs may show them because most parts places don't know much about what is actually on the cars. They just carry over stuff from one year to another.
    Happens all the time.

    My truck having hard time to start. It will not start after second tried. Alots people told me to to replace fuel filter. I'm telling you guys. I can't find it any where. There is none and i'm giving up look for it. Also, alots of people told me to replace the fuel pump. I'm found some replacement fuel pump kit on ebay for $69.00. The kit will replace the pump in the original assembly. I'm waiting for the shipping. I will let you guys know how it went. Peace
