Remove the gas cap, pull the fuse to the fuel pump (15 amp - check your owner's manual for the location and identification), then start the engine and let it run until it stalls. The Chilton's manual recommends also cranking the engine for ten additional seconds after this. If you let the car sit over night before beginning this procedure, the engine probably won't even start after removing the fuse, and only a few seconds of engine cranking are necessary.

Do you need to do anything such as relieve the pressure before changing the fuel filter on your Impala?

You can change it without releaving the pressure but I would reccommend bleading the pressure off using the steps below. Not bleading the pressure off will cause a fair (but manageable) amount of gas to spill out on you when you remove the filter. Take your gas cap off and then release the pressure from the fuel line under the hood. On the fuel rail is a schrader valve (which is similar in appearance to what you find on a bicycle tire). Place a rag around the valve to catch the gas that comes out. It will probably have high pressure initially so wear safety glasses of some sort. Also, (and this should go without saying...)make sure your engine is cold before doing this to prevent fumes from ignighting.

Is there any concern with fuel pressure when changing the filter on a 1996 Mazda B3000 pickup?

AnswerYes! Allways use caution when working with fuel! If the car is "hot" there may be pressure. Also the system may be gravity feed and gasoline may flow out, and if you just turned on the ignition, it will have full pressure in the line. It will allways have some fuel pressure.Before changing the fuel filter locate the fuse or relay for the fuel pump and disconnect it, then start the truck until it dies. This will minimize pressure in the line.
