Price to replace fuel filters?

Got a coupon from my dealer for an oil change and replace fuel filters for $229. Is this a good deal? Right now im at 12k miles on my 09. I think the owners manual says 20k for the fuel filters but if the price is right ill do it now.

I can do my oil change with filter for around 60 bucks and I can get the fuel filters at O'riley's for 68 dollars. So do it yourself and save 100 dollars. And I change my fuel filter every 10k miles. If I was you I would do it every 10-15k miles. I wouldn't go higher then 15k miles.

I would do fuel filters every other oil change. Both of which are extremely important to the 6.4. And yes, you can do it much, much cheaper than that.

ya thats a little high, i know they were sending out coupons for a while there for 149.99 for the fuel filter service the sad part is that barely covered the parts for us! Its sad but even working for a ford dealer walmart is cheaper then my cost for oil and filters and stuff. Just make sure there genuine motorcraft parts if thats what your gonna buy, we had a few pproblems because some of that stuff was knock offs and one of our customers oil filter ended up coming apart on him and dumping all 15 quarts in the street.

I think that maybe a little high also. DIY is much cheaper. The fuel filter I wouldn't run pass 15K either. Agree with the other member that said every other oil change, change fuel filter.

If your interested in saving a little more money I could get you a quote for AMSOIL for all your needs. With oil changes possibly 3X over OEM or further the amount of money you could save could be huge. AMSOIL was the worlds first API qualified synthetic motor oil in 1972. With AMSOIL 5w-40 Premium API CJ-4 Synthetic 5w-40 Diesel Oil (DEO) you get increased MPG. The EPA's Federal Test Procedure confirms that AMSOIL DEO provides up to 3 percent better fuel economy than conventional 15w-40.

If I can be of any further help please feel free to PM, Email or give me a Call.

Thanks
