Use two screw drivers to push in the white tabs on both sides to unclip it from the black coupler attached to the fuel line and pull.

Hi, there is a clip on each fitting. It's kind of "L" shaped, so you can pull it. It's made of plastic, and the new filter usually has new ones to come with it. If you have the new filter with the clips, you can see what they look like. Pull the clips out sideways from the fitting/filter. They will come all the way off, but as long as they are pulled out the lines will release.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 93 ford f150 xlt 5.8?


1990-94 ENGINES The filter, with these engines, is located amidships on the left frame rail. The filter should be changed either every 15,000 mi. (24,000 km), or 15 months, whichever comes first. The filter should also be changed whenever a fuel delivery module is replaced. CAUTION
To prevent siphoning of fuel from the tank when the filter is removed, raise and support the front end of the truck above the level of the tank.
  1. Relieve fuel system pressure. See Section 5. When working in hot weather, work quickly to complete filter replacement before the fuel pressure rebuilds!
  2. Unsnap the filter canister from the retaining clips.
  3. Disconnect the quick-connect couplings and remove the filter. WARNING
    Be careful to avoid kinking the fuel lines! To install:
  4. Noting the direction-of-flow arrow on the new filter, connect the fuel lines.
  5. Snap the filter into the clips.
  6. Turn the ignition switch to RUN several times - without starting the engine - and check for leaks.

Cant get the fuel quick conncect to release.


Are you using the proper quick disconnect tool and size. If not, go to autoparts store and purchase a cheap set. Choose the right tubing size one and slip it right around the line. Then, push it foward into the flare of the connector, and just pull it apart..... or you have what's called a hair pin type nylon connector. I believe that you just pull out on the tab and it will relese the line. If you break it, I think you can get more from autoparts store. Good luck!42301612

Most of the time this means low fuel pressure,check the fuel filter to see if it is stopped up,if so,replace it,if not,then have the fuel pressure checked to rule out fuel pump.

Ford f-150 fuel filter might be bad, have anything to do with starter maybe going out?


No the two issues are not likely related. But fuel filters are cheap ($10 or so) and fairly easy to replace.

Fuel filter


"Under the vehicle drivers side on the frame rail under the driver side door. There is frame right underneath it but you can access it easily. Be sure to release the fuel pressure before changing the filter. The fuel pressure release valve is located in the engine compartment on top of the engine. It is on the left side of the air intake manifold. It is just a small cap over the valve. Be sure not to lose that cap!! When you change the filter, the filter line on each side of the fuel filter has a quick disconnect type fitting inside the line (similar in principle to a quick disconnect on a gas line or air compressor line). To free the filter from the line you must push in (toward the filter) with a simple tool you can purchase at most auto parts stores for just a few dollars.

Additional Information The tool I was able to rent from NAPA. The guys there were very good to me. Look for about 45 min. of time to complete replacement.




While first off your going to need to relieve the pressure in the system, and if you think your going to just pull the fuel pump relay and then run the engine until it stops to relieve pressure it aint gonna work. Get a bleeder gauge. Your also gonna need a quick disconnect tool. Ford models are usually 1/4" 3/8" or 15/16". Put it on the fuel pump right before the "duck bill" then try to push the line foward. If that doesn't work just try to push the tool into the duck bill then try to push the line foward."
