I would check the inline fuel filter. I have a 2002 f150 and it is located along the frame close to the gas tank on the driver side. there is a special tool needed to release the fuel line connections.
here is a link to a youtube video that shows one being changed.
fuel filter locared on drivers side under carriage on frame, you probaly can't see it because it may have a shield or dirt. it is being held with a 3 to 5 inch worm clamp. WARNING!!! You will need to use a fuel line tool to disconnect lines. Failure to do say and attempting to remove without the tool can be costly.
Your gas tank is in the back of your car between the frame rails. The fuel line runs up toward the engine along the drivers side frame rail on the inside of the frame rail. The fuel filter is located along that fuel line inside the drivers side frame rail, about at the back of your front door. You should be able to trace the fuel line all the way to the intake of your engine. Once you locate the fuel filter, you will need a special tool to remove the filter from the line. You should be able to get the 'fuel filter tool' at your local auto parts store for under $10. The tool has a flanged end on it, and it 'scissors' open and closed. Place the proper sized end on your fuel line just in front of the filter so that the flange sticks in toward the filter. Gently push the tool in toward the filter, while pulling back on the fuel line. The line should come disconnected. Remember, the fuel line is pressurized and may spray gas for a second or two when it comes apart. Then do the same to the other end of the fuel line. Good luck. Any problems, write back.
It should be somewhere inline with your fuel lines that come from the gas tank. Find the tubes that come out of the tank underneath the car, and follow them along the body all the way to the engine. Somewhere inline there should be a filter. You might need a special tool to get it off though.
This special tool is available at your local auto parts store. Ask your parts expert what size you will need. The tool is fitted around the fuel line and pushed into the fitting on the filter. Make sure you relieve the fuel system pressure before proceeding.
They make cheap fuel line removal tools and can pick them up at any auto parts store. They can explain how to use them. Its really easy. Find the tool that's closest to your fuel line size, they also sell a universal pack for around $5. Open the tool mouth so it goes over your fuel line with male part of the tool facing the female slide it in. Then your line can be pulled out. Careful the line are under pressure with gas. It will only leak for a few seconds. Then replace your fuel filter and the lines just snap back on, no tools necessary. Check for leaks and your done. Good Luck!
Remove gas cap and relieve fuel system pressure from fuel rail pressure relieve valve.Then you will want a drain pan of course. Before you can remove the fuel line, you will have to buy the cheap plastic quick-connect fuel line removal tool that fits your car. Or buy a universal pack for like $5. Then you press the plastic tool inside the fitting and pull on the other side and it disconnects instantly. then grab the new filter and the lines will just click right back in.

it takes a special tool to disconnect these lines. go to your local auto parts store and ask for the fuel line disconnect tool.once you have the tool put it on the fuel filter prong that the fuel line is connected to and slide the tool up into the gas line, at the same time pull the line away from filter. you may half to try this several times.also when the tool slides up into the line twist the line and push in and out. in short thare is a spring up in that line that gets stiff and corroted so moving the line around while the tool is in place helps free up this sprind.also spray a little lubracant in the ends of the lines before beginning.
If you go to the auto parts store they should have a fuel line disconnect tool that has a 5/16ths end an a 3/8ths end. The tool is shaped like an X. Before you start you need to pull the fuel pump fuse under the front of the REAR passenger side seat while the car is running and let it stall. it will release the built up pressure. This is important unless you want gas to spray every where. Then take the tool and start with the end of the filter with two lines. Place the appropriate end of the tool over the smallest inlet, push the tool in then pull the line towards the filter and then push the line away and it should disconnect. Do the same with line above. Then you can use the two appropriate size wrenches to disconnect the outlet end. reconnecting the new filter is simple just make sure your quick connect lines click in all the way and you tighten the outlet line well, I think its like 22 or 25 ft/lbs.
