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.

Where the fuel filter located on a 2002 Ford explorer


your fuel filter is well hid !! the fuel tank is on the passengers side of your explorer on the fuel filer is located on the front top of your fuel tank ! access to the filter is obtained by removing the heat shield at the front of the fuel tank, there are two bolts retaining the shield to the right frame rail and two bolts retaining the shield to the cross member. once the shield is removed you will see the filter,Be careful removing the fuel lines, the lines have locking clips that DO NOT remove from the lines !! and can be damage if you are not careful (which will result in complete line replacement if the ends are broken. the line clips are released by disengaging the top of the clip then folding the the edge over towards the side its attached to next push both side's in (towards center on top edge) then push clip down part way while pulling line loose .Good luck Thanks for using fix ya

My 2001 chevy blazer (v-6, 4.3L)., has a fuel injector problem and I would like to know how to repair the number 5 injector.


You will need to remove the fuel rail bolted to the intake manifold. There maybe a clip holding on the injector. Spraying some WD-40 on the ends of the injectors to aid removal, also when installing, spray some on the O-rings, will help in installing them. Make sure all are seated.

Need to change fuel filter on 98' Mercury mountaineer all wheel drive, but do not know how on this kind.Engine size is 5.0


The fuel filter will be located under the driver side door tucked inside the frame rail. The filter should have 2 or 3 plastic clips you can pinch the end of the clips together and pull the clips right out.

I suggest replacing the clips because they get brittle and break easy. after you remove the clips you pull the fuel lines off. there will be pressure on these lines you can release the pressure by pushing the fuel valve stem located on your fuel injection rails underneath the hood either way you will have gas all over so dont do it while your engine is hot or near any flames, sparks or anything that will ignite the gas. (If you do not release the pressure be careful not to get gas in your eyes as it will spray for a secound or two).
After you remove the lines there may be a bolt on the outside of the frame rail you have to remove to remove the filter if not it will have a clamp around it and you just loosen it and slide it out. However on some models like mine there are not any plastic clips there are metal ones on the outside that clip onto the filter and the fuel line.

With ones like this there are metal retaining clips on the inside of the line as well it will take alot of force to pull them off and you will notice how there are two or three little metal pieces sticking out of the line, with a small screwdriver try to bend them back in if you cannot you will have to buy new ones from a autoparts store (orliley autoparts or advanced auto parts have them, the dorman part number is 800-017), they are called retaining clips, without them the lines will leak like crazy and you will not be able to drive, if you give up the new lines are available at the dealer for about 100 apiece and are about 6 hours of dealer labor to put in, so be carefull
