Not sure if this have to be linked with the various other topic walk on about the 2010 fuel filter but I have had it evidenced by the dealer in Vernon, after getting a reply to my e-mail to Subaru Canada, the there is no fuel filter to change in the 2009"s. Lock at an initial said 96,000 kms but looked it up to confirm and noted there is none; it was readjusted for 2009. So the "official" native is no fuel filter. Does no answer how they attend to contaminated fuel tho....:icon_confused:

Just choose all 06+ it has the filter built into the fuel pump assembly. The filter itself doesn"t have actually a replacement interval and also isn"t easily accessible separately that seems.

So it has actually been officially confirmed by both her dealer and Subaru that there is no fuel filter in the 2009-on Foresters. Subaru have to be educated that their printed and web maintain schedules have to be corrected to reflect that.I will certainly let Joe Spitz" the Cars101.com know around the fuel filter being deleted.

As provided by funkymonkey1002 above, over there is no fuel filter that deserve to be replaced as a constant maintenance item, therefore its not in the maintenance schedule the was provided to me through Subaru. Ns am glad but that over there is some type of filter.And just to make it clear, i asked and also received information for only the 2009, I perform not know around the 2010 or any other year, therefore this only applies to 2009.

They started doing this around 2005. That"s exactly how it is on my wife"s Impreza.I discover it tough to think that there could be such a point as a life time filter. DFM! (Design because that Maintenance)
I had actually this confirmed by my dealer in ~ my 24k service. I had actually them go through each items of the 24k checklist.
So is the (pump assembly) thing still situated under the behind seat favor on the 2006+ models? Or go they pole it somewhere even more inconvenient? (Probably among the factors why I prefer older Subarus to their newer counterparts)
As detailed by funkymonkey1002 above, over there is no fuel filter that deserve to be changed as a constant maintenance item, thus its no in the maintenance schedule that was given to me by Subaru. Ns am glad yet that there is some sort of filter....
So the very same filter is in the very same place, and also Subaru has just to reduce the 60-month 60K-miles necessity to replace it. That"s what they carry out with those difficult filters. An initial the transmission filter go from lifetime to deleted, and now the fuel filter has actually gone indigenous 60-60 to lifetime.
So it has been officially shown by both your dealer and Subaru that there is no fuel filter in the 2009-on Foresters. Subaru must be notified that your printed and also web maintenance schedules need to be corrected to reflect that.I will let Joe Spitz" that Cars101.com know about the fuel filter being deleted.
When i was looking the up for the "SH 2010 Fuel filter thread, I found nothing about changing the fuel filter either in my "09 owners hand-operated or ~ above the My.Subaru Cookie Test page site.
Seems like the OEM service providers are deleting the "serviceable" fuel filter as they"ve unable to do on through non-metal tanks and also returnless fuel lines. There"s tho a "gross" filter ~ above fuel pumps that is not serviceable and also fuel injectors usually have actually a 10 micron filter in them. Subaru is most likely going through this exact same approach.Of course, nobody knows how frequently the gas terminal owners adjust their pump filter which is what yes, really troubles me.Regards,paul...
I agree. Uneven Subaru has actually somehow controlled to change the legislations of physics, i don"t see how they managed to get roughly filtering fuel when every other internal combustion engine machine from the dawn the time has actually not. I guess we"ll see exactly how this plays out over the long term. This doesn"t give me a whole lot of trust in the 2009+ models together a long term auto choice.
Correction: This doesn"t offer me a whole lot of confidence in the 2006
+ models together a lengthy term car choice.
