I had one rust out on me on my last car....talk about a simple maintenance thing becoming a problem! I learned my lesson and just replaced mine at 50k. It was like $6.

I clogged filter can also cause premature pump failure.

Let'* not forget Morty'* 94 SE. He jumped in and swapped the fuel pump since it looked like it wasn't keeping up. However the filter was done at the same time and I doubt any pump could have pushed fuel through it. On the highway I read 10pis of pressure. And asked him to let off before we went into a flame out condition.

LMAO

Rule of thumb for fuel filters I know is about 30K on a daily driver, 15k on a car that sits a lot.

yes, its got to be an easy thing to do and easy to over look. if i get my car into the shop here to do that oil change and everything else one weekend i'll do it then, or i'll have whatever shop i take it to do it. might pay a bit more but at least its done. thats the important thing.

I have one, i am just afraid to touch it because it is all rusted in place...

once i change it and i repair the rusted parts, is there something i can spray on the line to prevent rust even something simple like some clear laquer? or something? that could be the reason my car has been feeling kinda sluggish...and sluggish on an LN3, well thats just downright slow....

only thing i've ever done to stop rust was on tools and we sprayed them down with WD-40 now and then...
