Ou need a special tool to remove the fuel lines on your vehicle. Fortunately Ford had the wisdom to provide it to you. Here's how to do it.

Warning: because of the combustion characteristics of gasoline, always use extreme care when removing and installing any fuel system component or personal injury or damage to the vehicle may occur.

  1. Perform the fuel pressure release procedure.
  2. Raise vehicle on hoist.
  3. Remove push connect fittings at both ends of the fuel filter. NOTE: To remove 5/16" push-connect fittings, use Fuel Line Removal Tool T90T-9550-B or tool supplied on vehicle. Tool is located 254 mm (10 in.) behind fuel filter. Place in glove compartment after use.
  4. Install new retainer clips in each connect fitting.
  5. Remove fuel filter by pulling fuel filter toward center line of vehicle and free from fuel filter bracket. NOTE: The flow arrow direction should be positioned forward and downward to make sure of proper fuel flow through replacement fuel filter.

It turns on but once warm the car turns off

a fuel filter would never cause this symptom, the most common cause of this problem in this year is the ignition control module.
