How Do I Change the Fuel Filter on a Dodge Ram Cummins Diesel?

    • 1). Release the hood lever latch from inside the cab and lift the hood.

    • 2). Locate the fuel filter on the driver's side of the engine near the firewall. The filter is round and is roughly 4 inches wide and 6 inches high. It mounts onto the rear of the engine block.

    • 3). Place a catch pan under the fuel filter for any fuel that may spill during the filter's removal.

    • 4). Remove the lid from the fuel filter housing cap with a 1 1/8-inch socket. Turn the lid counterclockwise until you can remove the cap and the filter. The filter is connected to the cap so they will come out of the housing together.

    • 5). Pull the filter from the cap. The filter is held to the cap with small plastic retaining pins and can easily be removed with a gentle pull.

    • 6). Place the new filter onto the cap and press them together to engage the plastic pins.

    • 7). Position the filter and cap assembly back onto the housing. Tighten the cap with the 1 1/8-inch socket.
