  1. Put some safety glasses on.
  2. Remove the gas cap.
  3. Remove the bracket holding the fuel lines by the fuel filter to give you a little working space.
  4. take the gas tool and put it around the line and press towards the fuel filter. You may have to wiggle it a bit and work with it but eventually it will pop a little loose and the you pull that line out of the fuel filter.
  5. Do the same with the other line.
  6. Now the fuel filter should be out. Note the arrows on the new filter and the arrows on it. The arrows must point forward or the fuel filter will not function properly.
  7. The fuel lines just push firm right into the new filter.
  8. Now reverse the previous steps to finish the job.
  9. Don't forget to click that fuel cap a few times to make sure it is on real good.

Regards, Tony

On a 2007 ford explorer sport trac how to change the fuel pump


The "quick disconnect" fittings for the fuel lines are usually problematic to disconnect unless you use this tip. The fittings get full of dirt over time. First, use compressed air to blow out the dirt. Then spray the connection with penetrating oil. Now insert your disconnect tool and it will come apart much easier. It's also easier to disconnect all the hoses & electrical connectors after dropping the tank down about 6 to 12 inches. Below is a video which shows how to do this job. Do yourself a favor. When you re-install the tank, apply anti seize compound to the threads of the mounting bolts. That way, if you ever have to remove it again in the future, those bolts will come out easily.

Fuel Filter Removal & Installation To Remove:

CAUTION
Fuel injection systems remain under pressure, even after the engine has been turned OFF. The fuel system pressure must be relieved before Disconnecting any fuel lines. Failure to do so may result in fire and/or personal injury.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable and relieve the fuel system pressure.
  3. Raise vehicle
  4. Disconnect the fuel lines from the fuel filter. Have a drain pan handy to catch any residual fuel once the lines are separated.
  5. Remove the fuel filter from the bracket and the retainer, if equipped. Note the direction of the flow arrow so the replacement filter can be installed correctly.
  6. Dispose of any residual gasoline in an approved container.
To Install:
  1. Position the fuel filter into the mounting bracket with the flow arrow pointing in the correct direction.
  2. Install the fuel lines to the fuel filter. On some models, align and push the male tube into the female fitting until a click is heard. Pull on the fitting to ensure that it is fully engaged, and then install the safety clip.
  3. Lower the vehicle to the ground. NOTE: When the battery has been disconnected and reconnected, some abnormal drive symptoms may occur while the PCM relearns its adaptive strategy. The vehicle may need to be driven 10 miles (16 km) or more to relearn the strategy.
  4. Connect: the negative battery cable.
  5. Turn the ignition key to the ON position to pressurize the fuel system and inspect for any leaks.
Hope this helps!!!

Fuel Filter for Sport Trac


If the car is running good no engine problems or poor gas mileage I wouldn't worry about it. This is done as preventive maintenance. Every tune-up parts have replacement recommended periods. Ignition components, all filters and lubricants should all be replaced the most every six moths depending on how much you drive. Its all common sense if you check your oil and its black its time to change it. If your brakes are screeching same thing and if it been six month probably well over 15,000 miles since you replaced the fuel filter it'll be a good idea to change it.
