Gas filter replacement

(2000 Chevrolet Venture)
in Cape Elizabeth, ME on May 12, 2009
I am using a napa replacement fuel filter. When I removed the original equipment filter, some o-rings fell out. Do I need to re-use these o-rings with the new filter, or just snap the fittings together as the new unit comes?

Thanks for the update. I sure don't like the sound of leaving out the o-rings, possibly causing a fuel leak, but it sounds like the new part had the seals.

Nope. I went ahead and just snapped it in with out the o-rings that fell out and it is all set. The o-rings came from the female end of the old filter. The new one has all the seals needed in place. Just snap the new one into place and your ready to go.
