    The fuel filter is located in the engine compartment on the passenger's side of the vehicle, or on the driver's side frame rail in front of the fuel tank.

    Fuel filter replacement

    First apply the parking brake. And then unplug the water sensor wire connected to the fuel filter and unscrew the filter element.

    You should remove the filter element. If there is any dirt on the filter sealing surface, clean it off. Remove and reuse the water sensor float switch located on the bottom of the fuel filter.

    Install the new filter element. And then reinstall and tighten the filter container and reconnect the water sensor wire to the filter.

    Prime the fuel filter. And then tighten the air bleed valve by turning it clockwise until hand tight.

    And then start your engine and let it idle for five minutes. Check your fuel filter and air bleed valve for leaks.

    Reset the fuel filter monitor.
