how do you remove a fuel filter on a 1995 Ford F150 with a 4.9L six cylinder

HiCustomer

 

Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.

 

To remove the fuel filter you will need the fuel line release tool. Once you have the safety clips popped of insert the tool in the fitting and push the line on the filter while pushing the tool into the fitting. Then pull on the line and it comes right off. You can get the tool in the help section of any parts store.

will the fuel line be under pressure and if so how do I release it?

If it has been ran there will be some, locate the fuel rail service port on the fuel rail and press the stem as this will relive it.

my truck has been feeling like it is "running out of gas" intermittenly, it has 130,000 miles on it, no lights have come on the dash, and it has two full tanks. do you think this could be the problem?

HiCustomer

 

Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.

 

Yes if its doing it on both tanks its very likely, The filter needs to be replace every 30K and would be a good place to start.

what about plugs, wires, cap/ rotor? it almost stalled 3 times at lower speeds (5 -15 mph), but push in the clutch and it comes back after a few seconds, then everytime I would try to go it would do it again, then it just sort of went away and ran great for a while. at higher speeds if I just push the peddle to accelerate it seems to do a quick little "buck" once or twice
Plugs, wires , cap and rotor are called for at 100K, The bucking could very well be an intermittent miss. If you have not done so, I would do the whole list. I would also consider having the injector professionally cleaned due to the 130K.

i just ran a tank of lucas oil fuel inj. cleaner through it. would that be sufficient or no?
Well its take a little longer but yes should be ok.

great thx. one last question, when i pull off the fuel filter will gas leak out even after I release the pressure, it does have two full tanks?
No just a little in the lines. You will be fine.
