The fuel filter is located just ahead of the fuel tank on the driver side. It's tucked inside the frame. You'll need to go to the parts store and get the special tool to release the lines. You push the tool in where the lines and the filter push together. This will release the line. Sometimes it takes a little finessing. Remove the fuel filter. Push the fuel lines on the new one. That's it. It's a good idea to release the fuel pressure before starting all this. Otherwise you'll end up with gas spraying all over for a second.

Take care.

My 1996 Ford F150 Super Cab wont start without stepping on the gas pedal and when you put it into gear it dies..please help!!

I would check your fuel pressure at the motor on the fuel rail see if you are getting enough pressure. The fuel filter might be getting plugged causing lack of fuel. If it seems to get enough fuel just won't stay at the proper rpm throttle positioning sensor on the intake might not be working properly.

Have changed the fuel filter lately? You may moisture in the fuel, I suggest you change the fuel filter and add some fuel addatives to the gas tank. This will help to help get rid of the moisture and clean the injectors. The fuel filter requires special tools to remove the old one. If you are going to attempt this yourself make sure you let the truck sit with the ignition off for at least a half hour. That should be enough time to allow the fuel pressure to bleed down, or you can relieve the pressure at the fuel pressure test port. Keep that hot trouble light a good distance away too, you don't want cold gas hitting that hot bulb.
