I'm new on the boards so apologies for my ignorance. I've been researching threads regarding fuel filters. I have a 2008 2.7L and the book tells me to replace the fuel filter at 60k. But I have two questions regarding what the book says:

1) Every other car I've owned didn't need a fuel filter that soon. Is this a dealer money maker or do you think the filter really does need replacing every 60k

2) I've read on other threads about a "non-servicable" fuel filter on the 07+ models. What does this mean?

Thanks!

[b]Dont bother, we dont sell fuel filter for service item.

[b]Not sold as seperate part in most respect,, have to replace the WHOLE fuel pump module.. if you bound and determined to replace, I have a new module with new filter in it..

Thanks!

Every bit of prescribed maintenance is a money-maker for the dealer. :P

My inclination is to be proactive with fluid changes, but leave things like fuel filters and spark plugs alone until there is a reason to suspect that they need changing. The fuel filter resides inside the fuel tank, which is probably what they mean by "non-serviceable"... Hyundai recommends having it done by a technician.

Ok so maybe I'm missing something here. Just because the filter is in with the fuel pump doesn't mean it can't or shouldn't be changed. If the manual says it needs to be then there must be a reason. Most dealers might tell you not to worry about it, but then why does the manual say otherwise?

I haven't needed to do it on the SF yet, but I did on my Tiburon V6 and it wasn't that bad to do. Yeah it took a little searching by the parts guy to find the right parts (the Tib has a suction filter in addition to the main one) but why not do it if the manual says to?

It does not look that tough to change the fuel pump...looks like hardest part might be removing seat(s)

But, from looking at the info on http://www.hmaservice.com/

It does not mention the fuel filter...it appears the fuel pump, fuel regulator and fuel filter are one integrated unit...

https://www.napaonline.com
does not appear to list a fuel filer for a 2008 Santa Fe 2.7...

http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/Az-...questid=1744567
shows a small tube style fuel filter for a 2008 Santa Fe 2.7

wixfilters shows the fuel filter as "not serviceable"
Part Number: NS
Principal Application: Means "Not Servicable" - service not required
All Applications

http://www.wixfilters.com/filterlookup/ind...p;TempYear=2008

Yet, http://www.dealerdirectparts.com/2008-HYUN...ntafe-lim-4.htm
lists a 2008 Fuel Filter (Part Number: 31112-0W000) for "..Our Price: $65.07..."

I would suggest that [b]"Principal Application: Means "Not Servicable" - service not required" means that it is replaceable as a complete unit. NOT that it never requires servicing.

The filter will need renewing at some point in the life of the car and when that time occurs the entire unit must be replaced.

I used to have a 4WD which had a fuel sedimentor (Diesel) every time I changed the engine oil I drained the sedimentor and removed up to 100cc of water and crud! At least on our diesels there is a separate filter in the engine compartment.

I remember the muck and sediment that used to gather in the bottom of carburettor float chambers - Do you remember them?? - this blocked jets etc. What I'm saying is, petrol/gas engines are not immune to dirty fuel.



If it ain't bust don't fix it!
Think first then use a big hammer. If it won't move hit it harder!

To replace the fuel fiter, you have to buy the whole fuel pump module... why replace fuel pump if not needed ?? Thats a lot of money and time when there is drive issues.

The 2009 Santa Fe manual under scheduled maintenance calls for the replacement of the fuel filter at 84,000km and 168,000km (approx 60,000 and 120,000 miles).
Wow, so is Hyundai saying that you can not buy a fuel filter separately ? And you have to replace the whole 'fuel pump/fuel regulator/fuel filter' assembly - just to replace the
fuel filter?? If the manual calls for fuel filter to be replaced...it and it is not done - I am thinking you could be denied warranty coverage.

I still think you should be able to just get the filter. That pump housing is similar to my Tiburon, and I figured out how to take it apart and replace just the filters (there's a main filter and a suction filter for the Tib). I even made a DIY here: http://www.newtiburon.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=177366
