2005 Chevrolet Malibu Repair Question
2005 Chevy Malibu Fuel Filter change
When do I need to change my fuel filter? The oil change guy said I need to change it every 30,000 miles, but my dad said modern cars don't need them changed unless there is a problem. Who is right? My manual doesn't say anything about changing the filter at all.
Who is right?
Both are right.
Here is the problem...you have a filter in the tank that is capable (so the engineers say) of long term filtration qualities. It is not cost effective to replace yours on a maintenance perspective.
Some cars still have in-line filters and 30,000 is not bad advice..l.I go 35,000 myself.
IMHO...stay away from quick oil change place and chain repair shops.
