Question, I have 165.000 miles on my 4.0 cherokee. As far as i know the fuel filter has never been changed. I am going to change it, While im doing this is it worth spending the money and replace the pump or just replace the filter and be done since there both in the tank?

Filter in the tank? On a XJ I believe the filter is a canister the size of a soup can near the driver's side real wheel attached to the frame rail. I'd pass on the pump unless it sounds bad like the bearings are going. You didn't say the year of the Jeep, here is info for a 97 Grand that has the filter in the tank: http://www.carsurvey.org/review_26174.html Hope that helps.

On XJ's the filter is part of the fuel pump module on top of the tank. If it were me and I was dropping the tank to replace the filter...I would change the pump as well. But that's me. Wink

I would certainly change the Fule Filter (located on the left rear frame rail) but I would not change the fule pump unless it is not working.

Allow me to clear a rumor up for all ya'll. XJ's, depending on the year, will either have their fuel pump on the rear driver's side frame rail, or on top of the tank. I do know that my 90 had it on the rail, my 98 has it on the tank.

Ya know, in that lies the answer. A combination fuel filter/fuel pressure regulator is integrated into the Fuel Pump Module, so go ahead and change it all if you have a newer model.

The earlier model located on the frame rail is an inline filter.
