I had not replaced the filter in 180,000 miles. I used a bigger 300zx type(better flow). And wow! This car is much more responsive all the way to redline!

The old filter weighed a ton and all this black mud came out of it when I flipped it over. CHANGE THEM!!

Just got it at my local discount auto parts. The 300ZX Filter was $10 and the Altima one was $12...

The 300ZX is much bigger but still fits in the filter clamp. Also buy about 2' of extra fuel hose. That most likely will need to be replaced anyway. The old one was so hard I had to cut it off. New hose makes the install a piece of cake.

1. Pull the Fuel Pump breaker.
2. Start car and let it run till it stalls... (now there is no pressure in the fuel line)
3. Now replace fuel filter.
4. Replace fuel pump breaker.
5. Turn key and let it sit for a few seconds to let the fuel pump pressurize the system.
6. Start car and enjoy the new found peppiness!!

hmmmm so it fits.... I wonder if the car would feel the same with a clean Altima filter...

I've got to replace mine...

You probably felt a difference...

cause its a clean one and you changed it. I doubt the filter size would yield much to any performance. I noticed that when I changed mine I did notice a gain but thats cause it was dirty and old to begin with. I guess for $2 more it cant hurt.

changing fuel fiter

sounds good, but i wouldn't let my car run until it stalls to get the fuel out of the line, might be bad letting it run that lean even for just a little bit. But then again it might not be so bad, i wouldn't take a chance like that though

if you don't have a CONSULT machine to shut the line off, the NSM says to remove the fuse, and crank it until it stalls..

if nissan says to do it, I'll do it.
