You will need to jack up the RR corner of the vehicle to reach it. The fuel filter is fastened with a big clamp to the right side frame rail, close to the fuel tank, just ahead of the RR wheel. Use a small flat screwdriver to remove the two plastic clips from the lines attached to the filter. Be careful, the lines are under pressure, and there will be fuel that will spray out as you unplug the lines from the filter. Use a flat screwdriver to loosen the clamo from the body of the filter and then you can remove and replace the filter. Install the new plastic line clips that are in the box with the filter into the lines and then plug the lines onto the filter until you hear them click in place.

What size oil filter for 1991 Mercury Sable?

There were 3 different engines available in 1991, so that means there are 3 different oil filters. The auto parts store will be able to specify which filter is right for your Sable when you tell what size engine you have. The engines were the 3.0 litre, 3.8 liter, and whatever comes in the SHO model. Open the hood and it is very likely you'll see a large 3.0 or 3.8 emblazoned on top of the engine. ================================================================================== I was looking at one of Fords websites and it shows : For a 1991 Mercury Sable , both the 3.0L " VULCAN " V6 and the 3.8L V6 engines use the : ( Motorcraft FL-400-S engine oil filter ) It doesn't indicate which filter is used for the Super High Output model
