How to Replace a Fuel Filter
(DIY Complexity: Moderate / Time: 1.4 hours)
1. Fuel Filter
1. 3/8 in. Drive Ratchet
2. Hose Pincher
3. Flare Nut Wrench
4. Flat Head Screwdriver
5. Socket Set
Step 1 Open the hood and locate the fuel filter. If the fuel filter is not in the engine compartment, follow the fuel line from the tank until the fuel filter is located.
o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.
Step 2 If the fuel filter has a clear case, inspect the filter element for dirt.
Step 3 If the fuel filter case is not see-through, remove it from the fuel line. Drain the fuel from the filter into a container and inspect the condition of the fuel.
o Tip: Caution: Before removing fuel lines or fuel related parts, make sure that the fuel pressure is relieved from the vehicle fuel system. To relieve the pressure in fuel injected systems, remove the fuel pump fuse and run the engine.
Step 4 Install the new fuel filter making sure that the flow is in the correct direction. The arrow on the fuel filter is the direction of flow from the tank to the engine.
Step 5 Secure the lines back onto the fuel filter. If applicable, reinstall the fuel pump fuse.
Step 6 Start the engine and check for fuel leaks.
Step 7 Test drive the vehicle to check for a rough running engine, hesitation, or lack of power.
Hope help with this.
