The frame mounted one is underneath the back driver's side compartment on a supercrew. Real easy to spot.

My opinion on when to change diesel fuel filters doesn't really matter but I really rely on anything Ford Tech Makuloco says. Just 3 days ago he put up a great video on when to change fluids in Ford vehicles and his recommendation on diesel fuel filters is to change them at 15,000 miles.

This is a good video and addresses a lot of maintenance on our very expensive trucks:


I was also watching a few videos on unlucky folks who put DEF into the diesel tank. Talk about expensive!

I typically do my diesel filters every 15k. Diesel is dirty. Fuel system on these trucks is expensive. lol

I cant right this minute, but I will point you in the right direction. Its just like the 6.7 Ford F250. So watch the videos on 6.7 F250 fuel filter changes. The 3.0 engine fuel filter is mounted in the middle of the engine under the engine cover. There is also the larger one mounted next to the fuel tank.


Here is the Motorcraft fuel filter kit I have been purchasing from Rockauto. Also while on the site, get yourself a couple of Motorcraft oil filters for the 3.0. I do all the maintenance myself, or I pay my guys to do it while I watch, so I stock these parts on hand. This truck is actually very very cheap to maintain.
