This fuel filter is the factory part for ford trucks. it matches the requirments for my ford van. fairly easy to replace. Make sure to remove the fuse for the fuel pump system or you will spray fuel all over and have a potential hazard. you need the tool to remove the fuel lines from the old filter. you can remove the battery cables from the battery if you can't locate the fuse to disable the fuel system. you should consult the service manual for your specific vehicle before attempting to replace the fuel filter.

              I will be gwtting my hands on one of these filters, I sure hope for better filtration and better performance and smooth acceleration, cause the filter that is on my ruck I done had the 97 F-150 4.6 for 2 years and have not had a new fuel filter installed, i am sure that it definitely needs one on it, cause it feels like time I crank it 1st thing in morning that insufficient fuel flow is reaching through the fuel lines freely up to the fuel rail lines, then to the fuel injectors , the truck feels like it be hesitating, and stalling, a lil shake, vibrate time crank up and then to normal idle, I feel like I need a fuel filter to achieve good performance on highway at highway speeds on the interstate. I do not want the fuel pump to go out on me yet, oh no, thats why I need to go on and get a fuel filter replaced

                  Comments about Motorcraft Original Equipment Fuel Filter:

                  I bought a nice '92 F150. Some said this fuel filter was an easy change. They must have some type of spreader to remove the filter from the holder. I had no problems with the lines. I have the tools I need but getting the filter out after disconnecting it is a bear. I ended up tying a phone line at the top and pulling it to spread the holder open slightly and tied it off. I did the same to the lower half. After that it came out pretty easily. Hope this helps you out. I tried to be honest here. I have been working on cars since the '60s and I think this was one of the toughest fuel filters I've ever changed. There's not much room to remove the rear line but you can do it. I had some plastic line wrenches that slipped over the line and easily unlocked the spring. You can do this but it takes patience. Lots of luck.

                      I recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

                      It doesn't just pull off, you need a line tool to release the holding clips and THEN it will easily pull off.
