so I'm at the mileage to change my fuel filter.. anything special out there worth looking at or shoudl I just grab the $10 repalcement from autozone?
+1. Good little write up dude.I would use the actual Motorcraft filter. You will also need to get a tool to release the locks for the fuel lines (I believe it is 5/16"). I backed the car onto the ramps, released the fuel rail pressure, then took the clamp off that holds the filter into the bracket and pulled the filter out of the bracket. Then pop the little clips off on each side of the lines/fittings. After that I took a plastic grocery store bag and put some paper towels in the bottom of it and held it up around the filter, took the line release tool and pushed it in to release the lock, and then pulled the line off one side and let as much fuel drain out as possible. Then I removed the other line. To install, just put the filter in the bracket and put the clamp back on, push the lines on until the click into place (lock), and then put the clips back on. When you're done, turn the key on for a few seconds to allow the fuel pump to refill the lines and filter, then start it.
