Replacing fuel filter in 6.6l v8 diesel truck

I am trying to replace my fuel filter. (I have had it replaced professionally in the past, but want to do it myself.) A simple question: How do I create access to remove and replace the filter canister? Do I have to remove the battery?? Something else???
Thanks!

Remove the passenger side inner fender. There should be 14 small plastic clips that hold it in place. Once you move the inner fender out of the way you will have unobstructed access and full view of the filter. This process should only take a few minutes and will save a lot of time and avoid a mess!

I have a 02 plate ford focus 1.8 turbo diesel which starts 97 percent of the time but the odd 3 percent it takes a few mins to start it any clues?


Water in fuel or fuel filter in diesels will do that. Try replacing the fuel filter and some dryer in your fuel. Water in diesel is a common problem, I drove a semi for 9 years and had to change filters a bunch.

04 diesel toyota landcruiser, no power when I accelerate. only revs to about 1500rpm. diesel and filters clean.


well it runs,,,,,
low power on a diesel is
1: low compression
2: bad fueling
#2 can take forever to find, if you dont know what engine it is or what fuel system was used.. no country stated, so cant guess
read the wiki on land cruiser and see what you have.
we dont know.

series 80?
series 100,200 ??? what?

one of those last 4? engines?
once there, we try to find out how it works. each varies.
can fix engines with out knowing exactly what it is, and the injection system, used.
cant.

2002 duramax diesel that seems to be starving for fuel. replaced the fuel filter and no help. The fuel lines are colapsing at the fuel filter.


try to replace the fuel pump. possibly cause might be you replaced your filter a little to late, that some dirt already entered your pump. also, try to clean the fuel lines itself.

I need "step by step" instructions on how to replace the fuel filter on my 2001 Dodge Ram 3500 pickup. Thanks !


Here you go if it is a diesel:
A. FUEL FILTER REPLACEMENT:
The fuel filter is located inside of the fuel filter housing
1. Unscrew and remove fuel filter cap at top of fuel filter housing. To unscrew, attach tool to 6-sided hex center of cap. Do not loosen cap at outer edge. The fuel filter cap is designed to remove filter while pulling up on cap.
2. Remove O-ring from cap and discard.
3. The filter is retained to cap with little fingers. Carefully pry a couple of them off from old filter.
B. FUEL FILTER REPLACEMENT:
1. Thoroughly clean inside of filter housing, cap, etc. with clean diesel fuel
2. Fill filter housing (canister) with clean diesel fuel. NOTE: If you do not do this, you will have to manually bleed air out of system later. No fun.
3. Snap new fuel filter to bottom of cap.
4. Install new O-ring
5. Apply lihgt film of clean diesel oil to cap O-ring
6. Load filter/cap into housing.
7. Tighten cap to 25 ft. lbs. torque. Do NOT over-tighten.

check your filters and fuel filter.. if they need to be replaced then do so.. then check your fuel pump.. a mechanic can tell you if you need to replace that or not... and check your starter, alternator, and battery cables

7.3 V8 DIESEL RAN OUT OF FUEL WILL NOT START


When you get some fuel you can unscrew the fuel filter and fill it with diesel. Then put the filter back on without spilling the fuel.

There should be enough diesel to prime the motor and get rid of the airlock. Also with diesels make sure you are using the correct tank if you have a tank switch.
