    Default fuel filter on 06 tacoma xrunner

    I was under the impression the fuel filter is on the fuel pump. However, when changing the spark plugs and pcv valve today, i noticed a black fuel filter (looks like one) in the fuel line on the drivers side before it goes to the intake. is this another fuel filter? if so, what part number is the replacement. Thanks.

    The fuel filter is in the tank. That is not a fuel filter. All of that is the fuel tank purge system.

    Thanks. It looks like a fuel filter...i am glad i asked.

    so with it being part of the fuel pump, i guess it never gets changed unless the fuel pump does?

    Part of the evaporative emmisions. What exactly that little can is, I don't know.
    You can hunt around for it here: 2005 to 2006 Toyota Tacoma OEM Repair Manuals
