    It's right here, depressurize the system, and disconnect the lines, replace filer, reconnect lines. Prime the fuel system before start. Done.

    turn the key and let the pump "prime" the system. Just let fuel flow through the lines. Turn the ignition on without starting the car a few times, you'll hear the pump.

    what they said, its very simple and i always put a shitty towel around it when i releive the pressure on the system so i dont get fuel leaking all over my tranny and what not

    if you have a haynes/helms it spells it out with proper tq settings and everything... if you can change your oil you can do this lol
