2002 ford expedition found gas filter do they have a tool to take it of with.

The fuel filter is installed with quick-disconnect fittings. You auto parts store rent and/or sells these tools to allow you to change the filter. Do not try to use anything else to release the filter or you risk damage and leakage.

Change fuel filter

Remove the screw from the metal bracket that is holding the fuel filter. It is located right below the battery to the right. To get the quick connect fuel line fittings off. YOU WILL NEED A DISCONNECT TOOL. O'Reillys or Auto Zone should have the tool pack of (6) The small gray one fits the 2001 Sportage. Put the plastic tool under the fuel line fitting and squeeze together. The fuel line will pop off the old filter. To remove the rear fuel line, go under the vehicle and use the tool on the fuel line. There is a rubber hose with 2 quick connect fittings. One end attaches to the filter and the other end attaches to a metal fuel line under vehicle. Remove the fitting that attaches to the metal line since there is no room on the back of filter for the tool to fit. Once you get the whole assembly out of the car.... you can work on getting the fitting off the rear of the old filter. Be very careful not to damage the plastic quick connect fittings! KEEP YOUR FACE CLEAR OF THE FILTER A SMALL AMOUNT OF GAS WILL COME OUT!!!!!

How to change fuel filter on 1997 Ford 150

Things You'll Need

  • Drop pan
  • Socket set
  • Fuel line disconnect tool
  • New filter

  • 1Slide the drip pan under the driver side of the truck, below the driver door. Climb under with the socket set, fuel line disconnect tool and new filter.
  • 2Unbolt the fuel filter retaining strap with the socket set. The filter is located along the inboard side of the frame, below the driver seat. When in doubt, simply follow the fuel lines forward from the fuel tank until you locate the filter.
  • 3Disconnect the front fuel line from the fuel filter with the fuel line disconnect tool. The line flares out where the filter outlet enters it and a retaining clip holds it in place. You can unseat this clip with a pocket screwdriver or a pick, but it's not advisable, as the clip tends to break if pried on unevenly. hence why u need the tool. about ten buck
  • 4Pull the fuel line off the front of the fuel filter and then pull the filter out of the rear line and retaining strap. Put the old filter in the drip pan.
  • 5Slide the new filter into the retaining strap and plug the inlet into the rear fuel line. Make sure the arrow indicating flow direction points toward the engine. Connect the front fuel line, push the retaining clip back into place and bolt the retaining strap back to the frame.
  • 6Climb out, get in the truck and turn the ignition key to the run position. Wait for the fuel pump to stop running (this should be about 10 seconds) and start the truck.

Cannot get the fuel filter off the quick disconnect is not releasing

Most of the time that the disconnects are not working is because of dirt and grime build up. Most of the fuel filters take a line disconnect tool to release the clips. If your filter has plastic clips that you can see at the connection, you should be able to pinch the clips together while moving the line back and forth or twisting back and forth to disconnect the tabs. If this is not working, used compressed air to blow out all the debris from the quick disconnect. Other filter take the fuel line disconnect tools. Dirt and grime give the tools grief in getting the lines disconnected too. Clean the lines before attempting removal and you can save yourself a lot of grief. Hope this helps.

How can i change fuel filter in my grand marquis

you will need the proper Quick Disconnect tool, Look on the Frame rail for the filter, remove filter from the spring type retainer, remove the safety clips on the lines but not remove them completely, insert the disconnect tool & push into the fitting of the fuel line, push line & tool into eachother then pull filter away from line, if not done properly you will have a big problem putting the line back on

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.
