Hey guys. Thanks for the thread. Wanted to see what you guys think - I replaced my fuel filter at 80k miles, and now at 118k miles finally the fuel pump died, so I replaced that as well. SO, should I assume that my fuel pump died because my current fuel filter is starting to get plugged again and therefore replace my fuel filter again for good measure to protect my new fuel pump, OR do you think, since it's only been 38k miles since I replaced the filter, I can safely wait for another 20k miles before installing the new one? You know, just to save money and not throw my current fuel filter away prematurely.... This would be assuming that my pump just died from old age (118k miles) and that my filter is probably fine. Any thoughts?
