Good writeup, although $25 at your local autoparts store gets you a Haynes manual for this any EVERYTHING else that needs can be replaced on your truck. With pictures, error codes, wiring diagrams, torque specs, repair troubleshooting, etc.
IMO, $25 well spent. I have one for every vehicle I have ever driven.

what happend to the pictures on these instructions? And how do you depressurize the fuel line?
You can depressurize the fuel system by pulling the fuse for the fuel pump and cank the engine. It may run for a few seconds before stalling. As far as not depressurizning the system- you may get away with it if you disconncetthe engine side of the filter first. the filter will diminish the spray. I do not have the specs but the fuel pressure may be 45-60 psi. I would want to get it in the face.
Count me in as someone who doesnt want to "get it in the face."
I have the tool (the one that looks like a dual-sided scissor) and I am not sure how it works. I am scouring youtube for a video demostration but maybe someone can help me out here. Here is what the tool looks like:
For some reason, I thought instructions wouldve came with the tool. Obviously I was wrong. So how do you use the tool? Do I have to do something with red clips? I did notice the metal clip in the back (tank side) but I havent removed it yet. Also, does the key in the ACC position (to play the radio while I work) prime the fuel pump?
So, I successfully changed my fuel filter Saturday after I got the plastic quick-connect disconnect tools.
I just got around to checking how dirty the filter was this afternoon and I was shocked! It looked like sweet tea! I could barely blow through the filter, so it was obviously ready to be changed. I am going to use mostly Shell gasoline, while also using fuel system cleaners every oil change. I dont know what the previous owner did, but I will take care of her for the rest of her life! By the way, there is a somewhat noticeable gain in throttle response. I hope I also see a small rise in economy.
