Fuel Article - Fuel filter and Water Seperator Replace

Recommended Posts

on 2013+ trucks there are 2 filters that should be changed every 15,000 miles.  this should be done when you do your oil filter


Parts needed / Part number

1. 68197867AB fuel Filter

2. 68157291AA Water separtor

3. 29mm socket f or the fuel filter cap

4. ratchet / extensions / elbows 

5. oil filter rubber wrench is helpful for the water seperator


Filter Locations




Filter 1 is on the driver side of the engine mounted to the block. You will need a 29mm socket to undo this.  You will also likely need a elbow or 2 to get around the hood cowl.  Note the cap is plastic so take care not to strip it.  



Filter 2 is located just in front of the Rear Axel centered above the drive shaft.  This filter is a screw on filter.  


** please note that you will get a good amount of fuel spillage when you unscrew this filter.  Ensure your eyes are not going to be leaked on.  




Note the water in fuel sensor / drain.  this sensor can be unplugged from the truck harness to make removal easier.  


The Part number for this is PFRK54553  but you dont need to replace unless damaged.  a new o-ring comes with the filter.
