New from Georgia

Ran into this site looking for instructions on how to remove and replace the fuel filters on my 6.0 F-250. The instructions I found are excellent. My truck is a 2003 Lariat F-250, 6.0L, 4x4 Crew Cab that I bought new in 2003. After 75K miles it's been a great truck without any problems to speak of. I use it to pull my motorcycle trailer and to haul mulch, gravel and other chores for my wife's garden and yard. If I had to do it all over again I would've purchased an F-350 with the long bed. The short bed doesn't cut it if you carry a 700 to 800 pound motorcycle with a long wheel base. The tail gate is dented because I cannot load the bike entirely on the pick-up bed. The rear wheel sits on the tailgate.

Welcome to the ORG!

You'll fing all kinds of good info on here but I have to ask you one question?! You have changed your fuel filters in the last 75,000 miles right? You should be changing them every 10,000 to 15,000 miles!

Thanks

I was paying the dealer to do that, but I will be doing it myself from now on. Do you change the fuel filters yourself? If you do, have you encountered any difficulties doing it? thanks

Yes I change my own and have no problems with them! The one under the drivers side door is kinda a pain but they are fairly easy to change!
