If you go to the auto parts store they should have a fuel line disconnect tool that has a 5/16ths end an a 3/8ths end. The tool is shaped like an X. Before you start you need to pull the fuel pump fuse under the front of the REAR passenger side seat while the car is running and let it stall. it will release the built up pressure. This is important unless you want gas to spray every where. Then take the tool and start with the end of the filter with two lines. Place the appropriate end of the tool over the smallest inlet, push the tool in then pull the line towards the filter and then push the line away and it should disconnect. Do the same with line above. Then you can use the two appropriate size wrenches to disconnect the outlet end. reconnecting the new filter is simple just make sure your quick connect lines click in all the way and you tighten the outlet line well, I think its like 22 or 25 ft/lbs.

How often do your fuel injection cleaned on a 2012 Cadillac Srx

If you notice a power decrease or performance issues, but I recommend changing the fuel filter as a clogged filter can mimic bad or poorly performing injectors, try some Lucas fuel injector cleaner, and why you are at the parts store have them scan the cars on board computer, most do it free of charge and only takes a few minutes.
back to the filter, I change mine at least once a year. I don't care what the owners manual says ! locate filter here 2012 Cadillac Srx Google Search WIX filters are a better choice.

The fuel filter is located on the inside frame rail on the left (drivers) side of the vehicle. It is in front of the gas tank. To change it you will need a special tool to remove the lines from the filter itself.

Your car will overheat very fast and you may either notice coolant leaking from the location of the pump and also possibly a squealing noise due to a bad bearing. Overheating can also be caused by a bad thermostat.
