Default Fuel Filter Change .....2000 Accord

How often should this be changed? Does the OEM filter come with the
two orings that should also be replaced with at the fittings?

Also, where is a good online source for OEM Honda parts like oil
filters, wiper inserts, fuel filter, brake pads etc? Seems I had a
good one out in Calif last year, but forgot who they were.


Thanks


Bob

Sorry.....make that "washers" at the fuel filter connections to be
replaced. NOT orings.

unless you're getting fuel starvation going up a 30% grade with a
trailer on the back and a 450lb hog in the passenger seat, you don't
need to replace the filter. on many hondas, that means /ever/.

Quite right....I should have done more research before posting
question.


After further review it would seem the fuel filter is in the fuel tank
and not even mentioned in service schedules.

An older non-honda manual incorrectly suggested the fuel filter was
located on the firewall - its not.

Unless it IS an older honda then the manual is correct.

The filter in the tank is part of the pump assembly (at least on my 89
Accord it was) and is basically a nut and bolt catcher. The fine mesh
filter is usually located in the engine compartment.

No longer true. In the 2000 and newer models, the only fuel filter is in
the tank. The replaceable one that used to be in the engine compartment,
and before that was under the car, has been eliminated.

I wonder why that is? In my older vehicle that has replaceable fuel filter
in the fuel line, I am always amazed by the amount of gunk and grit that I
find when I change the filter. You would think it would continue to be a
good idea to filter the fuel before it gets to the injectors.

Probably cost savings to them. The in-tank filter is more than just a
strainer sock and it is replaceable, but the recommendation is to only
change it when symptoms of clogging occur.

it is and it does. it doesn't matter where in the line the filer is -
in the tank, under the car, in the engine compartment - as long as it's
in line with the fuel supply.
