1 fuel filter change on Fri Jan 29, 2016 9:17 pm


Having purchased a used car (diesel) I wanted to do a oil/air filter change as no one know what kind of " service" they do? I also wanted to do the fuel filter but was discouraged by a mate wo said some times the fuel filter change may need bleeding and it can be a pain tin the back side. Any truth to this? (ford fiesta zetec 59 plate)

Not sure but I thought most modern cars where self bleading now days confused

fill the new filter with diesel and itll be ok thumbs

a modern diesel will self bleed with a few blips of the ignition without turning the engine over, old diesels have the bleed nipple. as stan said filling the filter helps and itll speed it up.

when what mileage has the car done?

my van ones are good for 100k miles?

most are about 60k

Don't know about the Fiesta, but the late Focus can be a bit of a git - they (like my Vito) don't self bleed and also don't have a primer pump built in either - and filling the new filter with fuel doesn't always get around it.
Not a big deal though, just pull off the fuel line and pull the diesel through with a Mityvac or a cheapo fluid extractor.
