Tools Needed:

Screwdriver - flathead


And a C-Clamp if you have one.

3 pencils

The fuel filter is about in the middle of the truck on the driver's side bolted to the frame. I read someplace else that you can use a pencil to plug the fuel line while you are changing the filter out. I used it and it worked pretty good...

The fuel filter for my S-10, 4cylinder, 2wheel drive uses a flex fuel filter... Which means it has 3 stems... 2 inlet and 1 exit.

(Make a note of where each hose goes before removing them) I used the pliers to press the clips to each hose so I could slide it off... I then used a pencil to slow the amount of gas that was coming out of the line. Do this to all 3 lines.

And this is the hard part. The filter is wedged into a round holder. And it is in there pretty tight. I used a c-clamp on the round holder and the filter to slowly work the filter out. And it came out very slowly...

Once I got it out, I noticed that each stem had clips on them to secure the hoses. I took the clips off of the old fuel filter and put them on the new one... I then pushed the fuel filter through the ring holder again as far as I could (which wasn't very far). Then I used the C-Clamp again to slowly push the filter into place. There is a line on the side of the filter that shows you how far to go. Once I got it in place, I securely pushed the hoses into place and gave them a nice little tug to make sure they were secure. Once you have checked the hoses, that is it...

Probably took me about 45 minutes... About 10-15 minutes to figure out how to get the filter out of the round holder.
