Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Quick release tool (Avail from most Napa auto parts stores)
  • Eye protection
  1. Step 1 Ensure your vehicle has had time to cool down since the last time it was driven. The engine block should be cool to the touch.
  2. Step 2 Remove the gas cap from your Ford Explorer and locate the Schrader valve attached to the vehicle's fuel line.
  3. Step 3 Don eye protection and depress the Schrader valve until no more gas and air comes out.
  4. Step 4 Locate the fuel filter. Your fuel filter will be located underneath the edge of the vehicle on the driver's side. There may be a plastic cover covering the filter. If so, unbolt it and remove it.
  5. Step 5 Take the safety clips off of the ends of the filter. Then, use a "quick release" tool to remove the fuel lines that are attached to the filter.
  6. Step 6 Connect your new filter to the fuel lines using the quick release tool to clamp the lines to each end of the filter.
  7. Step 7 Reinstall the safety clips on the new fuel filter by clamping them on each end of the filter.
  8. Step 8 Start your Ford Explorer and run at idle for five minutes. Visually verify underneath the body of the vehicle that there are no leaks from the fuel filter

Where is the pats override button located? specific under dash location. 2002 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD


There is no PATS override button. PATS is Passive Anti-Theft System. It is a transponder chip in the key, and a transceiver ring around the ignition lock cylinder. The Ring looks for the correct chip in a key in order to allow the vehicle to start. A bypass or override button in the vehicle completely advantage of having the chip system and would render is useless in entirety.

2002 Ford Exlorer XLT


That year Explorer was notorius for rear ABS sensors going bad. If your ABS light is on as well this may be your problem. Also they were notorious for 4WD modules going bad. This problem is more expensive. I would advise you to have it checked on a computer to see what codes you have.
