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.

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?

Here is a pic of my setup:

Just found these two youtube videos

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.
