How do you relieve the fuel pressure to change the fuel filter on a 1999 CRV?

You don't. Just make sure the key is not on (best to not have it in the ignition at all) When you loosen the fuel filter, the pressure will relieve by leaking on the ground. Expect less than a half cup of fuel to leak out from pressure. The remainder fuel will be from inside the filter housing. Get ready to get your hands soaked in gasoline. Dont listen to that guy. You can relieve the gas pressure by simply open your gas cap and leave if off the entire time when you're working on your fuel filter. Some fuel will still leaks out from the fuel filter but at least it's not going to spray on your face.

How do you change 1991 Nissan Stanza fuel filter?

RELIEVE THE FUEL PRESSURE FIRST! I suggest going to Autozone.com and research it, but on my 1990 Stanza it involves pulling the fuse for the fuel pump, then cranking the engine until it dies, then crank it a few seconds to relieve it. if you don't relieve the pressure, you'll have 40 PSI of gas spraying out of the connection, which could start a fire or blind you. After the fuel pressure is gone, find the filter and remove then replace it with a new one, note the arrows on the filter for IN and OUT. Rplace the fuse, start the engine and look for leaks.
