The short answer to this is: YOU DON'T! I know it sounds crazy, but do yourself a favor and look at the fuel system parts diagram at the dealership's parts counter. The fuel filter assembly is a sealed metal unit with permanently attached plumbing that has to be seen to be believed. Unless you have a really severe case of fuel contamination, do not undertake this job. If you really have to and can't afford the going rate at your dealer, patience will be your only ally in this undertaking. You will need to invest in really good quality fuel hose line removal tools. Snap-on, Matco, etc all have them. Do not be tempted into circumventing these fuel line connections with a piece of rubber hose and several hose clamps, the system provides too much pressure for these methods and it will leak, and that WILL start a fire. Good luck!

SOURCE: replacing fuel filter

Unfortunatly most dakotas have an inline fuel filter, its located in the gas tank because there not supposed to need regular maintenance or changing. Basically you have to drop your gas tank to get the fuel filter out.

I need to change my 1999 excel's air filter and fuel filter, i was wondering what i need to do to replace the air filter, as I know the fuel filter will take me a lot longer, but i need to improve its...


There are no tools required to replace the air filter. On your car, the air filter compartment has several clamps that can be pulled up by hand. Once the clamps are popped up, remove the cover and replace the air filter (pleated side down). Simply close the cover and push the clamps back into place and you're done!

Fuel pump needs to be replaces on 2000 Chevrolet suburban, do I also need a new filter, relay and induction?


Do you know for sure that the fuel pump failed or do you have a bad relay? If the fuel pump relay is good no you don't need to replace it. The fuel pump unit comes with the sending unit and a sock filter. I would replace the inline fuel filter when you replace the pump. In line fuel filters need to be replaced every 36000 miles. If that filter starts to plug up it makes the pump work harder which leads to premature failure.

Need to replace fuel filter. Have the filter just need to know the proper way to remove old and replace new and do i need a special tool?


You shouldn't need a tool. I do believe that on escort it just has those goofy clips that hold the lines to the filter. The filter should come with new clips if you break them when you remove them.
