It's only takes a few minutes as long as you have all four wheels above the ground. The most I've spent is about five minutes. If it doesn't use quick release couplers then it's just a simple turning 1/4" hose clamp. The earlier models have them by the fuel distributor and connected to banjo bolts which you cover with a rag while cracking the 19mm bolt while countering it with a 21-22mm wrench on the filter body. The newer models moved the filter rear passenger side area bear the filler tube.

Best time to change a fuel filter?

fuel filter replacement period is in the owners manual and depends on fuel quality and driving conditions
if you get water in the fuel , it should be change immediately, even if it was just done
dirty/dusty conditions , change it more often
around now would be a good time to change it and then under normal conditions again at 100.000 miles

The car seemed to not be getting fuel so we changed the fuel filter, then after that didn't fix the problem we decided that it was more like it was misfiring so we changed the spark plugs, now it's barely...

you might want to have the fuel pressure checked and the fuel volume checked as this can cause this type of problem.theirs a big difference between miss fire and no power.miss fire is rough running and possibly power is lack of fuel or something holding the acceleration could be a sensor problem like throttle position sensor(TPS).it could even be a voltage to computer problem.

Black fuel coming out of fuel filter

it is dirt trapped by the filter and yes it is normal, work for a Ford dealer see this all the time, would suggest you change gas stations or bring it to there attention that thier fuel is dirty. Make sure you change the filter at least every 30,000 miles, use a Motorcraft factory filter, they are by far the longest lasting and best at filtering.
