Guys,

Where is the fuel filter? Under the car in the back by the gas tank?
Also can the fuel line clips be released without a special tool?

Thanks

It is in front of the gas tank above the passenger side halfshaft. Have fun reaching it! :biggthump

No, you need a fuel line disconnect tool that you can get at pretty much any auto store.

You should see the fuel filter location on the '05+, it's on the driver's side unibody rail and is covered by a plastic cover that is a pain in the neck to remove, several different socket sizes for the nuts and bolts, along with pushpins that don't come out easily either.

Ensure you install the fuel filter in the correct direction.

I was told by Rick @ Anderson Ford for to use only a Ford Motersport filter. Some brands don't flow as good

I have been using Napa fuel filters on all my vehicles for years with no issues.
