No it should not spew. You should be ab le to slowly allow eqalazation as you loosen the fittings. You may get a little leakage as this is normal when changing the fuel filter onn any vihicle

Why does my check engine light keep coming on for the same codes?


Cylinder #2 is misfiring (P0302) and the Trib is Misfiring at startup (P0316). Mazda Tributes and Ford Escapes are notorious for cylinders going bad. You can either change each cylinder as it decreases in performance, or suck it up and do them all at once.

How to change fuel filter


Raise the left rear of the vehicle with a floor jack.

Turn the ignition off and remove the fuel filler cap to relieve any pressure that has built up in the fuel tank from evaporating fuel. This will prevent fuel from spraying and running down your arm when you release the fuel lines.

Use the fuel line quick disconnect tool to remove the lines from the fuel filter by slipping the tool into the quick disconnect until it spreads the retainer and allows the line to be removed. Push the line onto the filter while pushing the tool into the fitting, then pull the line off the filter. When both lines are free, unsnap the filter from the bracket.

Snap the new filter into the bracket, noting the markings that indicate flow. Flow should always be toward the engine. Push the line fittings onto the filter nipples until a click is felt, and the line can no longer be pulled off the filter.

Prime the fuel system by turning the ignition key to the "Run" position for two seconds and then to the "Off" position. Do this three times and then start the engine. Check the filter quick disconnects for leaks then test-drive. 2001 mazda tribute, good-day !

Car is cutting in an out as though it is out of fuel how ever the fuel tank is full. I guessing there is a fuel blockage. Would it be the fuel filter?


Hello leah... yes begin by changing the fuel filter. Here is how to do it:
1 Raise the left rear of the vehicle with a floor jack and place a jack stand under the rear sub-frame to support the weight of the vehicle should it fall. Every year people are injured or killed by not following this simple safety step.
2 Turn the ignition off and remove the fuel filler cap to relieve any pressure that has built up in the fuel tank from evaporating fuel. This will prevent fuel from spraying and running down your arm when you release the fuel lines.
3 Use the fuel line quick disconnect tool to remove the lines from the fuel filter by slipping the tool into the quick disconnect until it spreads the retainer and allows the line to be removed. Push the line onto the filter while pushing the tool into the fitting, then pull the line off the filter. When both lines are free, unsnap the filter from the bracket.
4 Snap the new filter into the bracket, noting the markings that indicate flow. Flow should always be toward the engine. Push the line fittings onto the filter nipples until a click is felt, and the line can no longer be pulled off the filter.
5 Prime the fuel system by turning the ignition key to the "Run" position for two seconds and then to the "Off" position. Do this three times and then start the engine. Check the filter quick disconnects for leaks then test-drive.

2001 madza tribute fuel filter


The fuel filer is located beneath the fuel pump mounting close to the left side rear wheel. However, this position subjects the filter to localized pit corrosion problem. But faily easy to change if you can order/purcahse the correct filter.

Unsrew the two clamp support screws to open up space to remove the filter in place, then retrieved plastic clip pins on either side of the filter and pull the tubes out. Install the replacement filter and assemble clamps.

Note: I am not a MAZDA Engineer or Technician. Just a user that got interested in changing method
