If the previous owner or the tech reset the filter monitor, it will tell you. Most seem to change the fuel filter ever second oil change (15k) instead of waiting till 22.5K miles.

Do you know who serviced the truck for oil changes, etc? If a Ford dealer or Quick Change, then it will show up on an Oasis report or the Ford app FordPass.

A filter, frame and engine, cost about $65. If unsure, you can go ahead and change them.

When changing the frame filter, loosen the cup 3 turns to break the siphoning effect before opening the yellow drain valve.

When installing the new frame filer, lube the large o-ring with clean engine oil prior to installing the filter cup.

Larry, CUSTOMER PAY service items DO NOT SHOW ON OASIS which will only provide the warranty history.

RGVal, the answer is simple. If you do not have a documented history you have no idea when the filters were changed and the truck will not know or tell you. If you want piece of mind go ahead and change them and begin your own service documentation. You could remove the primary filter cap and inspect the element however you would need a new o-ring for the cap and reusing them is not recommended.

Keith. Thank you. I did not know that. I thought if you had the truck serviced, oil change, filters, etc, at the dealer or Quicklane it would show. Will add to my tidbits of useful but not always needed knowledge bank in the old brain.

Fuel filters aren't cheap. I only get mine at the dealer but my parts guy is a friend so I get a deal. Maybe not much as Ebay but cheaper than Joe Blow LOL
