    fuel filter on a 2004 Silverado 2500hd?

    Hey does anyone know if the fuel filter on a 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500hd with a 6.0 gas engine is in the tank or is it inline? I'm guessing it's in the tank, because I can't seem to find one. But thought I'd ask because it seemed weird to me since all my other trucks were inline. If it is in the tank does it need to be changed? Thanks!

    2004 6.0 trucks have the filter in the tank. Its part of the fuel pump and sending unit assembly.

    Yes.

    You basically change the fuel filter when the fuel pump takes a crap.

    From GM:

    Fuel Filter
    The fuel filter is contained in the fuel sender assembly inside the fuel tank. The paper filter element of the fuel filter traps particles in the fuel that may damage the fuel injection system. The fuel filter housing is made to withstand maximum fuel system pressure, exposure to fuel additives, and changes in temperature. There is no service interval for fuel filter replacement.

    Raising the bed is a trick of the trade. It is easier to do as long as you have some buddies to help you get it off the frame and safely out of the way so it won't come crashing down on you.

    Are you doing this to swap the fuel filter? Because I know GM doesn't make a replacement, you have to buy the whole fuel module.
