Where is the fuel filter for a 97 expedition

Should be on the drivers side under the truck along the frame.
Follow the plastic fuel line.
You'll need to release the fuel pressure before disconnecting the lines, and a special tool to unlock the filter.

My 2003 Ford Expedition seems to buck back and forth between 40 and 50 mph. the check engine light is not on and i just changed the fuel filter. It has 104000 miles, and I just bought it last year. Any...

Has it had a tune-up yet? (New spark plugs) If not, you're due. Also, have the shop test your coil packs - a very common problem with the Expeditions. I had my plugs replaced and No. 2 coil pack replaced recently for around $340. I'm a handyman, but would never attempt to change the plugs on mine myself - too much could go wrong- breaking a plug off, special tools, etc.
This should fix your problem.

Where the fuel filter is located on a ford expedition 2002 5.4 liter

The fuel filter is located on the inside of the frame on the drivers side. Should be a little behind the drivers door. You will need a special tool to remove the lines that go onto the filter. You can buy the tool at most automotive handy stores (canadian tire, part source and so on). If you have any more questions please ask I would be glad to help

Stalled, leaking gas on drivers side by the rear door, i believe its a fuel pump? 2003 ford expedition. Can I replace it myself?

I replaced my filter on my 2003 also but you dont need special tools, you just squeeze the tabs on the connectors and pull them off. you might have an o ring missing on the one of the 3 hoses on the filter. The filter is under a plastic cover by the fuel tank near the driver side rear door.
