Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
I tried to change fuel filter but it is very hard to chance
It is difficult for one's first time. Also dirt, and mud builds up in this area, and really makes for a fun(?) time.
Before I advise you on how to do this, I would like to give you a few tips.
1.There is an inertia switch on the passenger floor side. Would be right about where your feet usually rest. Once you find it, disconnect the electrical connector to it, start the truck, and run it until it dies. It's also best to try to start the truck a couple of more times, to be assured that no pressure is left.
If you don't, the fuel is under pressure, and once you get the filter loose, gas will spray all over!
NO drop lights! No lit cigarettes Anywhere near, No Nothing that could ignite gasoline!
(After replacing the fuel filter, be sure to reconnect this electrical connector) Also remove the gas cap, and you will need a drip pan underneath as fuel will still drip out.
Have the front of the vehicle higher than the rear. USE jackstands, and put wheel chocks behind the rear tires.
2.It's best to use the plastic tool made for this, rather than the metal tool. The plastic tool is thinner, and works better.
3.I would like you to go to this link, and read the entire page. There are photos for this procedure, and tips,
