PostSubject: fuel filters   Sun May 16, 2010 10:16 pm

What do you guys like to use? Auto Zone wanted like 10 bucks for a hunk of garbage produced in China, I'm not putting that on my car. Laughing But at the same time, I don't really want to spend like 15 bucks on a fuel filter, I could have sworn I only had to pay about 5 bucks for an inline filter for my TBI Suburban 5 years ago.

Also, my car is TBI so it has the filter on the pass. side under the frame in front of the rear wheel. I don't know if the LT1s have the same filter, but it has these plastic fasteners on the lines. Is this hard to get off with those plastic clip things? Any tips? I'm used to the kind where you need two wrenches and a ton of WD40. Shocked

It uses the same filter set-up as the lt1 guys do. You use a special little tool that jams into the connector and pops the tabs out. If you bring that car up to NED then I've got the tools and should be able to help you swap it out pretty quick.

By the way the Wal-fart Fram filter is what I used and it never gave me any problems.

no tool needed for LT1 cars just squeeze the tabs on the filter. I had bad luck with an autozone fuel filter
it started leaking 2 day after installing

Wal-fart LOL

I may swap it before that but I'll take your offer under advisement.. Wink

So I take it you need some small needlenose pliers? I'm just trying to figure out what the deal is before I actually play with it, I didn't get a real good look at it when I was under the car last week. haha
