1998 Ford Escort 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 150000 miles
I have a ’98 Ford Escort ZX2 with a fuel injected 2.0L 4cyl that just turned over 150,000 miles. The car has been great until recently, I have had to show it a lot of TLC the past couple of months. I want to replace the fuel filter, but I remember someone telling me to release the fuel pressure before changing the fuel filter. Everything I have found so far simply refers me to the owner’s manual to do this. My owner’s manual was stolen from the vehicle several years ago. Can anyone tell me how to release the fuel pressure and then reestablish it again when the new fuel filter is in? Any information is welcomed.
