Hi guys. I need your help as this is the first time I’ve done this.
My car just reaches 160,000 miles and I decide to do some maintenance to it. One of the things that I want to do is replacing the fuel filter. Sometimes it jerks or jumps forward when I keep the throttle still. I think it could be the issue with fuel filter or something else. It’s a 10-year old car anyways so I think that part should be replaced like other things.
I read in the service manual and there is a part that guides you how to replace the fuel filter
However, when I search online, the results are not as expected. The only thing I can find is the whole fuel pump. There is a filter that looks similar to the one in the service manual but I am not sure about it. Most of the items are for sale on eBay so I don’t really trust what those sellers say.
I went to an auto part store and ask for the filter but they told me that the filter is included in the part in the picture above. I am quite confused right now as I checked the service on the yourmechanic.com , the site says that replacing fuel filter is not available, only the whole fuel pump assembly, which costs $500 as they quote
What’s your advise on this?
