SOURCE: remove fuel lines from the fuel filter on a 93 f150 ford truck

There is a special tool used to disconnect the lines from the fuel filter. You should be able to get them at any local automotive shop, i.e., Pepboys, Autozone, Chief Auto. It should be relatively cheap to buy this tool.

See Figures 1 and 2

  1. Open the hood and disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. Remove the adjusting arm bolt.
  3. Remove the alternator through-bolt. Remove the drive belt from the alternator pulley and lower the alternator.

Some engines are equipped with a ribbed, K-section belt and automatic tensioner. A special tool must be made to remove the tension from the tensioner arm. Loosen the idler pulley pivot and adjuster bolts before using the tool. See the accompanying illustration for tool details.
  1. Label all of the leads to the alternator so that you can install them correctly and disconnect the leads from the alternator.
  2. Remove the alternator from the vehicle.
  3. To install, reverse the above procedure. Torque the pivot bolt to 58 ft. lbs.; the adjusting bolt to 25 ft. lbs.; the wire terminal nuts to 60-90 inch lbs.


The fan belt drives the alternator and water pump. If the belt is too loose, it will slip and the alternator will not be able to produce it rated current. Also, the water pump will not operate efficiently and the engine could overheat.
Check the tension of the belt by pushing your thumb down on the longest span of the belt, midway between the pulleys. Belt deflection should be approximately 1 / 2 inch; (13mm).To adjust the belt tension, proceed as follows:
  1. Loosen the alternator mounting bolt and the adjusting arm bolts.
  2. Apply pressure on the alternator front housing only, moving the alternator away from the engine to tighten the belt. Do not apply pressure to the rear of the cast aluminum housing of an alternator; damage to the housing could result.
  3. Tighten the alternator mounting bolt and the adjusting arm bolts when the correct tension is reached.

SOURCE: where to find fuel filter 1986 ford thunderbird

Get under your gas tank and follow the lines. one of them should lead not far away from the tank where most filters are located. When you change it remember to release pressure by take loose the gas cap...and have some rags ready to catch some overflow.

Ford f150 fuel injected 302 STARTS THEN SHUTS OFF GIVING GAS

How long since a tune-up? Use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, my info says 35--45 psi, so if your right in the middle, somewhere, it should be fine. Have you ever changed the fuel filter? Any hi pressure fuel system, you need to make sure no pressure on the system before you take any fuel lines loose.

1986 ford xlt lariatf150 302 in it will run good for a little while but its staring to sputter an spit like its not getting gas. But ihavent changed the fuel filter yet. But you can let it sit for a sec....

There is only one fuel filter and the possibility of bad gas is good.If the truck set as long as you said then you need to drain the fuel tank and put in fresh gas,unleaded gas does not do well over three months old and if it is an ethanol blend it will actually start to grow a fungus.Change the fuel and the fuel filter and if this does not work let me know,we will start over from there.

89 ford f150 in-line 6 cylinder. i have replaced a few injectors both fuel pumps and filter. idles like a dream. when i hit the gas it studders but doesn't die. need more info ask. any ideas?

This is for a 1989 Ford F150 In-Line 6-Cylinder (4.9L) wrongly posted by the Asker under a 1986 Ford Mustang....

Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator. Look it up on line at any of the reputable auto parts websites to get an idea what it looks like.
There should be a Rubber Vacuum Line coming from this (the Regulator is located on the Fuel Line prior to the Fuel Injectors) to the Intake. Take this Line OFF. If there is gas in that line = The Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator diaphram is broken and the Fuel is being dumped into the Intake and NOT being advanced onto the Fuel Injectors; and the Regulator must be replaced.
Let me know if this helped.

Dule gas tank ford truck 1986 4X4 location of fule filters I found one

The main filter is ahead of the high pressure fuel pump on the frame rail, and has 2 small plastic clip holding the fuel lines on. The other is behind the high pressure pump, in the resviour, and looks like a cup. If yours has two filters,(some don't) that where it is. The cup screws off. If you find o-rings in the bottom of the cup, you have to replace the whole unit (if you choose to remove it) Good Luck to you!

Hi got a ford f150 1986 f/i will not start

check fuel pressure @ service port on fuel rail. also listen for fuel pump to come on when you first turn on key. pump is in fuel tank. also note i have seen a lot of f150 302 injectors clogg up.but that usually effect idle and performance. if there is good fuel pressure then check fuel injector signal with a tester called a noid light. it is inexpensive and can be found @ most auto part stores. you really should'nt check injector signals with a standard 12 volt testlight. it has been known to burnout the drivers on the ecu. test all that first.
