When I was at my parts store recently, I decided to pick up a new Fuel Filter for my '93 DeVille with the 4.9.

Today I broke out my Service Manual to get familiar with the location, etc, and to my surprise it states:

--Important--

--Fuel Filter is no longer serviced in regular maintenance intervals. It is only necessary to replace in the case of damaged or a clogged filter.--

My 4.9 has over 200,000 Miles on it now.

What would you all say about it ??

Thanks

Bill

Fuel is MUCH cleaner than it used to be and is filtered 2 or 3 times BEFORE it gets to your tank. Personally, while I do believe in preventive maintenance, I'd say if it ain't broke, don't fix it. It'll let you know when it needs to be replaced.

That said, it certainly won't hurt to change it.

Appreciate the replies.

Really just wanted to make sure there were no kind of drawbacks to it. These cars are almost at antique age, lol, but to me they're still "New" and I'm still learning.

I am really from the old school. GM Products, 1972 and older.
