I remove the fuel pump fuse or relay while the engine is running. The engine will run until the pressure has dropped. Leave the fuse or relay out until you have finished replacing the fuel filter.

Why is the pressure on my sand filter low?

Low pressure on the pressure guage before the filter indicates that the filter is clean. That is assuming that the filter is not damaged and letting water through unfiltered. As the filter collects more dirt it becomes harder for the water to pass through the filter and the pressure increases. When it gets too high you need to clean or backwash the filter.

Release the fuel pressure by opening the gas cap first, than pull the fuse for the fuel pump. Start the car, it will sputter and die from lack of fuel safe to change out the fuel filter. I'm not a safety freak...but let me advise wearing safety googles.
