    Usually the fuel filter is on the driver's side frame toward the front. You don't need special tools for that year van or later until maybe 1997 or so.
    Relieve the pressure at the fuel rail and do not take any spark-causing trouble light under there with you. don-ohio (:^)

SOURCE: Uninstalling and installing fuel filter

Fuel line tool. Can be found at any auto parts store. There are muptiaple sizes, so if you get a single one, make sure it's for your vechile. However, most tools come with all proper sizes. Once you have the tool, you slip it on the line, with the long end, you'll see what i mean, towards the filter. Push in and twist, while doing so pull line and filter away from each other. Line should pop right out. There might be some metal clips on the filter and line to keep them connected as a precaution. Those have to be removed to get the tool in proper area. A little note for you, I've worked in auto shops and I hate chaning the ford fuel filters. They are a pain in the but. Plain and simple. See, dirt can get up in where the tool goes making it harder to get line apart. Do you plan on keeping your vechile for a while? If not, is it worth paying for the tool just for this one use? I'm just saying think it over.

SOURCE: cant find fuel filter on 1988 foed econoline van

Follow the fuel line right up to the carb or throttle body. Sometimes it's a very small "metal can" looking thing that is on the carb end of the fuel line...surprisingly small...not like the bigger in-line filters found along the frame rails on other models. This small can-like filter screws into the carb and the line is attached to same. It's about the size of a quarter in diameter and an inch and a half long.

SOURCE: Where is the fuel filter located on a 1987 Ford

The fuel filter is found in the front of the van on driver's side, as well. You also have to determine if the van is electric or mechanical fuel pump. If it is electrical, with a V8 engine, it could be towards the back near the firewall or the fuel tank. If you are having problems with the pump, and it is mechanical, the problem could be the diaphram is punctured. They only have limited usage, and may need to be replaced. I suggest also changing your fuel filter at the time you replace your pump. This is the most accurate information I can give you as I have had the same problem in the past. Fuel pumps normally get around 50K miles. depending on the usage and if you are in a dusty area or not, as road dust can clog your filters and lower the performance of your vehicle. Good luck

SOURCE: fuel filter

unbolt the filter from the bracket, that is a 5/16" machine screw head size, then remove the nylon clips that hold the lines onto the filter, hold a rag over the fuel line when u remove it, it will have about 30 pounds of pressure.

SOURCE: What type of power steering fluid & capacity for 1985 ford e350?

On yours, you can use atf but power "steering fluid" works just as well.. steering fluid is used as a specific requirement on later vehicles and if you use it in the 85, you can use the leftover to top off anything you have that is newer. (can't do that with atf)

Where is the fuel filter located on 1985 econoline 350


In all the gasoline engines that came in the E-350 for that year the fuel filter is located in the engine compartment and you will need to remove the cover to get to it. Look to the rear of the alternator and it should be right there in the fuel line. I hope this helps and good luck

Remove a fuel filter from a 2001 ford econoline


Check in the frame rail on the driver side on the metal fuel line. Ford's been sticking the filter down there.
The filters come with a special tool to remove their special clips..

Either the fuel line from the front tank to the switching valve is plugged or kinked, or the valve is not moving all the way to that tank (if electrically switched). Pull the hose (from that tank) off at the valve--do you get good fuel flow? If the front tank is lower than the valve, try switching the fuel lines from the two tanks at the valve, and set the switch for the rear tank. If it now runs, clean the valve or replace it.
