Fuel system

So I understand the 03 max doesn't have a fuel filter... Is there any need/ reason to clean the internal filtration system... Could that be robbing me of hp if the cars got 120k on it????

You do have a fuel filter.....look on Ebay for a dealer seller and buy it from them should be like $30 or go to your near by dealership and ask how much?

You can also try courtesyparts.com

If you go to the parts department at.your local dealer and they claim your filter is a lifetime filter that don't need to be changed "PLEASE SLAP THEM"

I just change my hommies filter he got an aftermarket one it worked but was just slightly thinner than oem so the clips couldn't reach the walls of the housing....but it's not like if is going anywhere....

Look on the stickies there's a write up on how tou can change it.

It has one but it's considered "Life time" so no need to change it

Nissan considers it a non-serviceable part. Unless you're experiencing fuel-related issues, I'd just leave it alone. If you're worried about having a dirty fuel system, run a bottle or two of Techron cleaner.
