yeah. . . the fuel filter is the sock connected to the fuel pump.



like noah said. . . "lifetime" filters and that's according to Subaru.




Tony. . . if you come across the fuel filter and the sock is off. Just remember who swapped out your fuel pump.

Wrong old man!

The fuel filter is NOT the sock, the filter is located just above the sock. Also on the 04-05 it is listed for replacement on the 60k mark of the maintenance schedule.

I found a bare unattached wire on my harness and guess where it sits over...my knock sensor :/....just be overly anal about the whole process. my next logical step after that list would be to check each individual sensor with a meter and then your engine harness from the sensor connectors to the main disconnect thats dirrectly behind your driver's side headlight. let me know if you want help..you know I have a garage and the tools to help ya bro, and f.y.i. I STILL HAVE YOUR STUDDS AND LUGNUTS lol we need to fix that asap, hit me up tony
Thats A LOT of info lol thank you sir! im calling you in a minute..

The fuel pump is just a motor correct? If it's having to work harder to pump through a dirty filter it would make excessive noise right?

@ Tony. . . I know for a fact that your fuel filter was not replaced when we swapped out your fuel pump. Here is what it looks like with part number.



and this is how it looks like installed in lline with your fuel pump.





if you need a hand with that, I will be able to help out this weekend. LMK.



Edit : ouch. . . these filters go for $60. Compared to the $20 for the 04 and older.

Thanks Tristan. I know we did and i didnt think the pump would fail this quick... it really hasent been that many miles concidering how long my car was on jack stands and how long it was not driveable for.. it just seriously erks me.. i have NO idea what is even left to replace.. but i guess ill have to go over everything again.. I know Dylan checked basically every sensor on my car before i had to purchase a new ECU so i believe they should all be fine?

i dunno, maybe im missing something here.

I've learned that i need to laugh, exp about my car.. otherwise.. i will go INSANE!


****.. im already there *sad*

I am very postive that the pump was the only thing replaced along with the sock. The filter might be just bad like stoner says. . .



check out my edit on my previous post about fuel filter pricing.
