Question about 2005 Ford Ranger
I changed the fuel filter
Google the codes to learn what they are
Then diagnose the system that set the fault codes,
to find a problem
Fuel Filter-- as you know--has no wires going to it
The fuel filter will last for 3 to 6 years, if their is
nothing in the fuel tank to get it clogged up
Changing a fuel filter is NOT a FIX for Anything

these engines did have some exh valve issues, service bulletin 05-26-3. one other thing to verify is that the cam synronizer (CMP) is correctly installed. if its not right on, its way off.

Inside the frame rail on the driver's side. You'll need a 5/16" (8mm) socket if it is the type that is held in with a hose clamp, or a 10mm if it is the bracket type. Some of the lines are held in with white plastic clips, others by special springs. If it is the type without clips, you'll need a special tool to release them. Also, if it is the type without the plastic clips, make sure they gave you the right filter. If the new filter is shorter than the old DO NOT PUT IT ON. If you do, you will have to cut it off next time you have to change it as the tool will not fit in. The two filters look the same except the tubes are longer on the non-clip filter.

These codes mean that the oxygen sensor is reading too "Lean" on both the left and right cylinder banks and the engine control system can't compensate any further to solve the problem. You may have a dirty or failing Mass Airflow Sensor that is miscalcuating the amount of airflow the engine is taking in which in turn can cause both of these codes to set. If the sensor is reporting less air than the engine is actually taking in then the engine computer will add only the amount of fuel it should based on what it was told by the sensor which will cause both cylinder banks to run "lean". There could be something else going on such as having two bad oxygen sensors [very rare] but I do see these two codes together quite often and usually its the sensor that is causing it. Hope this helps a bit!

look under truck at drivers side door for the fuel lines. they will go into filter there and back out of filter there.you're looking for a round canister,you'll need to release the pressure by removing the gas acp also.there will be a plastic clip on both sides of the filter holding the fuel lines into the filter. pull those clips out with needle nose pliers, install the filter with the flow towards the front of motor, reinstall those clips unless new ones came with the new filter.keep in mind that you are under the truck looking up at filter, eye protection is a must!!!! hope this helps!!
