    Hello...I would like to replace the fuel filter on a 2007 LT 2.0...will I get a error code if I just take out the relay and run it out of gas to relieve the pressure in the line?

    Nope. That's actually how you're supposed to do it. Just make sure you know where you pulled it from, I placed mine off by one socket. Wouldn't start until I realized what I'd done in the morning.

    Side note, is it an SS 2.0 or an LT 2.2?

    LT 2.2
    ...well the repair manual suggests something else and states that the manufacturer doesn't recommend that method because it might set a diagnostic trouble code...so I was wondering if that has indeed happened to anyone?

    ..was also wondering if I should throw in some Seafoam stuff 1st....run it for a couple tankfuls then change the filter or would it matter either way?

    Seafoam is snake oil. Changing the filter is all that's needed.

    If you want to clean out the fuel system pick up some Chevron Fuel System Cleaner Concentrate, that last word is the important bit.
