Are there any engine light codes on? If so, retrieve them and post and I will follow up with diagnosis for them.
Fuel filter should be located right above the rear axle.
Removal/Installation instructions of your fuel filter (only one) are below.
Relieve the fuel system pressure by doing the following.
RELEIVING FUEL PRESSURE:
Disconnect the negative battery cable in order to avoid possible fuel discharge if an accidental attempt is made to start the engine.
Loosen the fuel tank filler cap in order to relieve fuel tank pressure.
Connect a fuel pressure gauge (with bleed hose) to the fuel pressure test port connection. Wrap a towel around the fuel pressure connection when installing the fuel pressure gauge in order to avoid fuel spillage.
Install the bleed hose into an approved container and open the valve in order to bleed the fuel system pressure. The fuel pipe connections are now safe for servicing.
Drain any fuel remaining in the fuel pressure gauge into an approved container
Remove the fuel filter from the fuel line using a back-up wrench on the filter.
Grasp the filter and nylon connection line fitting. Twist the quick-connect fitting 1/4 turn in each direction to loosen any dirt within the fitting. Disconnect the quick-connect fitting from the fuel filter.
Remove the fuel filter from the bracket.
Before installing a new filter, always apply a few drops of clean engine oil to the male tube end of the filter and to the fuel sending unit assembly connection. This will help ensure proper connection and prevent possible fuel leaks. During normal operation, the O-rings located in the female connector will swell and may prevent proper connection if not lubricated.
Install the fuel filter in the mounting bracket.
Connect the quick-connect fitting to the fuel filter using the following procedure:
Apply a few drops of clean engine oil to the male ends of the filter and the fuel sender assembly.
Push the connectors together to cause the retaining tabs/fingers to snap into place.
Once installed, pull on both ends of each connection to be sure they are secure.
Install or connect the following:
Fuel filter. Torque the fitting to 20 ft. Lbs. (27 Nm).
Negative battery cable
Pressurize the fuel system and verify no leaks.
