Fuel Filter 14'gt

Hello, I am owner of a 2014 GT and I am going to do the oil and filter change service and I planned to change the fuel filter but I have read comments that this filter is for life. This is true?
I am from Spain and the Ford dealer has no idea of ​​this car.
Thx for all.

Inside of the fuel tank. Itís a lifetime filter, no maintenance required.

Yep! We even have self-defrosting freezers, and self-cleaning ovens these days

Itís mostly about marketingís ability to colorfully label new technology or improvements over older conventions.

There is a lot of conflicting information about an in-line fuel filter for the Mustang GT.

There is a thread titled "Suggested Maintenance" that you can search and see an attachment from Ford for the 2011 model stating the in-line filer applies to the 5.4L that is in the 2011 GT500.


In regard to the 2014 that the OP has a question about, the owners manual says the fuel filter is lifetime.

Lets look at this from a parts application standpoint using a more specific site unlike the generic USA O'Reilly or Autozone sites.
Open the link below which will take you to the fuel filter. After the link opens touch word "Filter Assy" highlighted and it will take you to another page that you can check fitment.

There are also different fuel tube assemblies listed for the filter and non filter models.

We replaced one on GT500..... It must only be for the Shelby models & not the GT's

For S197 GT models that ran 2005 through 2014, the in-line filter was present for the 4.6L, but was removed when the 5.0L replaced it starting in 2011.

It mostly boils down to what the definition of the "lifetime" of a car happens to be. Most cars are given a "lifetime" by the manufacturer of about 5 years (generally because many owners will replace their car in that many years). This is why you don't see any "lifetime" replacement parts warranties or on new cars. Since the filter in the tank is a serious pain to replace, I'd have a shop check my fuel pressure. If it shows below the minimum operating pressure, you might just replace the pump and the filter. A 6 year old car shouldn't need a pump/filter unless it has gotten dirt/water in the tank. You will get some moisture due to condensation inside the tank and this might cause a few rust particles in the tank (which would get picked up by the in-tank filter).

Ford probably could have been more clear in owners manuals what model Mustangs have in-line filters that have recommended service intervals as opposed to the fuel pump filter that has no maintenance requirement for lifetime of the vehicle.

Think the tank filter is an issue? Take a guess what the recommended service interval of the transmission is in the OPs car?
