the v6 and the v8 are both in the tank on that truck.
I just double checked with one of my parts catalogs and its not servicable without disassembly.... so ya.... in the tank

What the hell...my parts guy gave me a regular external canister filter...are you sure it's in the tank??? That makes no sense, I've never heard of any fuel filter being put in the tank, it's a maintenance item...it's a 318, which I'm sure makes no difference. FUCK. What kind of retards put a fuel filter in the tank???

Ya, and the real big fu@# that they did is most newer dogdges don't have a return line for the fuel, so all the crap that gets by the filter, ends up plugging up the backside of the injectors[36] way ta go dodge.

Most of the 04 and up Chev's. have the filter in the tank with the pump as well,especially the gas trucks.Kinda silly seeing as most of the fuel pump failures we see in the shop are in pick-ups caused by plugged filters.[1d]

thats the primary one in the chev tank, theres usually a second on the frame rail.....but mines a 99

If I was dodge guy I'd remove the tank one and put in my own reuseable

I'm thinking that removing that filter is exactly what I'll do, but is that going to be much of an issue? Is it an integral part of the pump assembly? I'd rather just cut a section of line out at the framerail and mount an external filter.
