    Fuel filter change

    Question, What do I need to do to change my fuel filter? do I need to be on empty or anything and where is the fuel filter located? I figure it will help my gas mileage in this age of extreme gas prices. Never done this before please dont mind my ignorance.

    no, your just going to spill gas. its un-avoidable. now make sure you have a fuel line tool. and make sure its the right size. the filter itself is on the back of the drivers side back seat under the car. if that makes sense

    good luck

    those article say to relieve pressure via the schrader valve. another way to do it is by removing the fuel pump fuse. start the car and let it run until it dies. then relieve at the schrader valve. less mess.
