Welcome to! My name is DriveFast71(Ron) and I will do my best to answer all of your questions completely and accurately.

The fuel filter is located on the cross member just in front of the fuel tank. It's not that bad of a job as long as you have enough clearance and access to the underside of the vehicle.

  • Remove the fuel cap
  • Raise and support the vehicle. graphic
  • Disconnect the quick-connect fitting at the inlet of the in-line fuel filter.
  • Use a back-up wrench in order to prevent the in-line fuel filter from turning. Remove the threaded fitting nut from the outlet of the fuel filter.
  • Drain any remaining fuel into an approved gasoline container.graphic
  • Remove the fuel filter mounting bracket bolt.
  • Remove the fuel filter and the bracket.
  • Remove the fuel filter from the fuel filter mounting bracket.
