Released Fuel Line Remove fuel lines and install the new fuel filter (most fuel filters have a directional arrow which needs to be observed), re-mount the new filter. When trying to start the engine for the first time, it might take a few tries before the engine will start because the new fuel filter is empty as well as the line.
