I have searched, i know when and how to do it, but there is one question. Someone said that they needed a special fuel filter tool, i would love to know for what years you need this tool. Mine is a 90 if that will help.

i bet you have the same fittings i have and i needed a tool. the tool is cheap and readily available at any auto store. it is built scissor style and can do a few different sizes.

you prolly don't need one then.
have you looked at the filter and its connections? that should give you a real good clue.

I will check this afternoon because I feel my baby starvin for gas. If I sit at a light for too long it sometimes starts to idle rough and the rpms drop and go back up, it needs to be done tonight if possible. Thanks for the help.

if there are white plastic clips pushed thru the black connector, you don't need the tool. if the connectors are solid and shiny silver, you do. as far as i have seen, anyway...

well, I didn't need the tool. This might have been the best 8 dollars I have ever spent onmy truck. It starts so easy, idles so smooth, and runs like a champ. All this for 8 bucks and less than ten minutes. The write ups here were helpful, but made it sound like gas was going to pour out, a few drops from the line and maybe the dirtiest gas you have ever seen, and all I had to do was push two pins. I think it was the original filter from the factory!

Check fuel pressure at the regulator after you change filter.

I just changed my filter on the 94 and what a PITA. I had the release tool and still nothing. I was afraid I was going to damage the lines by yanking on them, so I finally just took a pair of bolt cutters to one end of the filter and 5 minutes later- New filter. Turns out 2 of the little "fingers" were F'd up. A couple minutes with a screwdriver straightened them right out!
