How to replace fuel filter on 2002 Windstar LX Model 3.8L Engine
Hi, I've located the fuel filter, and purchased one.
I believe the next step is to relieve the line pressure by disconnecting the fuel pump fuse or relay after starting the engine, then letting it the engine die.
After that I'm not sure how to deal with the fuel line connectors. Does this take a special tool, as it's not a bolt on type but more of a slip on connector.

You can release the pressure by a presure nozzle on the top of the motor, mine is on the passenger side of the motor has a black cap and looks like a valve stim for a tire kinda. any how take the cap off and you can use a tire pressure chuck to release the pressure

If the P0171 is combined with the P0174 code, it's very likely that the problem is caused by an intake leak. If there are no intake leaks, the next step is to replaced the air filter and clean the air flow meter. If the problem persist the front oxygen (O2) sensor may need to be replaced.

HI Honda offered this motor that year with either Fuel Injection or with a 2bbl Carburetor.

If its has the carburetor then the filter will mounted under the car next to the gas tank on the drivers side.

Steps: Step 1 Open the hood and locate the fuel filter. If the fuel filter is not in the engine compartment, follow the fuel line from the tank until the fuel filter is located. o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.
Step 2 If the fuel filter has a clear case, inspect the filter element for dirt.
Step 3 If the fuel filter case is not see-through, remove it from the fuel line. Drain the fuel from the filter into a container and inspect the condition of the fuel. o Tip: Caution: Before removing fuel lines or fuel related parts, make sure that the fuel pressure is relieved from the vehicle fuel system. To relieve the pressure in fuel injected systems, remove the fuel pump fuse and run the engine.
Step 4 Install the new fuel filter making sure that the flow is in the correct direction. The arrow on the fuel filter is the direction of flow from the tank to the engine.
Step 5 Secure the lines back onto the fuel filter. If applicable, reinstall the fuel pump fuse.
Step 6 Start the engine and check for fuel leaks.
Step 7 Test drive the vehicle to check for a rough running engine, hesitation, or lack of power.
