Fuel filter on 2007 Mazda 3 - need to be replaced?
Does anyone have any information about replacing the fuel filter on a 2007 Mazda 3? I did some googling, and it seems that most people say: 1) the fuel filter is on the fuel pump in the tank, 2) the fuel filter is in the tank filler neck, or 3) there is no fuel filter, or 4) the fuel filter does not need to be replaced and should last the life of the car.
However, when I look at my owner's manual (from the mymazda website), the fuel filter is clearly listed in the maintenance table, where it says the fuel filter should be replaced every 24 months (or some amount of miles). I also called a dealer, and they quoted me $130 to replace the fuel filter.
Does anyone have any information on the fuel filter, if it needs replacing and how I can do that?
