Page 133 of the Owners Manual in the Diesel suppliment.Where is this information from?
I'm okay with just using the gallon ziploc bag. Drain valve seems overkill to me as I don't bother with the factory drain plug.
See page 17 View attachment oring_chemicalcompatibility.pdfWell it was time to change oil and fuel filter. This is my first fuel filter change since buying the Geno's garage kit. Everything was fine until I went to put the brass drain plug back in. The o-ring has swelled up enough that it just squeezes out when you try to tighten it. Searched but couldn't find anyone having this problem. Will any similar sized o-ring work or does it have to be be something compatible with diesel? Any advice would be appreciated.
Due to various comments on this forum, I just changed my fuel filter on my '17 ED at 16K miles. Seemed to be the idea that oil filter changes should be at 8K with fuel filters every other change. I used Mopar branded filters and got the pair for $69 on Amazon. YMMV.This couldn't be because it brings them more business is it? Ive stuck pretty close to 30k on mine and its all been fine.
Money in their pocket, next thing you know, they’ll want you to come in every 3k miles.Dealership recommended 7500 mile fuel filter changes..Said FCU started off at 15, then moved it to 12, then 10 and are now at 7500 miles...especially for those on the east coast...
ever get that photo of your modified fuel filter removal tool? I'm planning to do the same as you but with a Fumoto valve with nipple for a drain tube. May use a band style filter removal tool like this?I agree with you, that you have to remove the valve because the filter wrench won't fit. That is why I'm modifying the Geno's filter wrench so I don't have to. Just adding about 1 - 2" to the top. This way you can crack it open, release the pressure, then fully drain it.
I use an oil filter wrench with a modified fuel filter tool since adding the drain. The truth is the last couple filter changes were accomplished by simply loosening with my hands.
