E450 v10 where is the fuel filter?

Anybody? I have 24000 miles on a 2009 ford. Is it time to change it, and where is it located?

Do you have to? Probably not. But if I had your unit, 8 years old, I'd replace and cut it open...just to see the condition of your fuel, fuel tank and fuel lines. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. However, more often than not, I'd expect you'll find no issues with it...unless you have some issues that are causing you to suspect a problem with the filter.

Should be in the fuel line probably near where the bread box (the "RV" part of the motorhome) joins the cab section. Google this...there are many results for this. Also get a picture of a new one...it will help you to know what to look for when you are under your vehicle.

E450 v10

Don't want to hijack this thread but a quick question...

I also have an E450 V10 - is this part of the F53 family I read a lot about?

Thanks!

No, F53s are a truck chassis, generally with a larger V-10 than the E series.

My 1999 E450 gas filter is underneath, in the chassis rail, just about under the drivers seat.

E450 V10s are 2 valve per cylinder engines.

The F53 uses a wider, 3 valve engine, that doesn't fit in the E series chassis.

There are many differences between the E and F series chassis. The E has independent front suspension, automotive type crash protection and air bags.

The F 53 series has a heavier solid front axle, brakes and payloads. Because it's considered a truck, it does not have to meet auto crash protections.

Back to the original question. Most I've seen are located inside the frame rail under the driver seat. You'll need a special tool to release the filter. The tool is available for a few bucks at most auto parts stores.

It's a high pressure line, I think you'll need to remove the fuse for the fuel pump or disconnect it and run the engine til it quits before pulling the filter. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
Mine is located along the chassis rail driver's side near the seat. I had it changed once by the oil change place at around 50,000 miles. Probably due again soon, I'm at 90,000 now.

I never pulled any fuses when changing mine. Did it about 6 times in 2 months when I bought some contaminated gas.
