Dodge Ram 1500 EcoDiesel Fuel Filter Wrench plus Drain Plug
For 2014+ Dodge Ram.
On the Dodge Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, removal of the fuel filter is not so easy. It is hidden underneath the bed of the truck, about mid-way back and just to the left-of-center. This wrench and drain plug helps with changing the fuel filter.
When opened, the yellow drain valve doesn’t drain much fuel. You’ll typically only get about two ounces of fuel to drain which is not enough to prevent a fuel bath when the fuel filter canister is removed. With this billet aluminum fuel removal tool, the process is easier and far less messy.
The wrench has a 3/4″ (19mm) boss. The wrench fits snugly on the bottom of the fuel filter canister and grabs the four tabs on the outside of it making removal easier. The drain valve is installed after the first filter removal and drains all of the fuel so you won’t have fuel running down your arm when you take the canister down.
