diesel filter change schedule

I know oil and filter get changed every 5k, but what about fuel filters?

Should pre-filters always be changed in between main filter? Mileage parameters?

I believe the only other filter is the air filter, and that should be changed when dirty, right?

RE: diesel filter change schedule

You've also got a power steering filter. Filter change intervals are listed in the owner's manual. Some are 15K. Others are 30K. I change the fuel filters every 15K and check the air filter, but I think it can go to 30K.
