TRace the fuel line under the car till you find a big thing along the line, it should be metal, that will be fuel filter, as to when to replace no idea, every 10 years maybe.

Re: How to Change "fuel filter"

10 YEARS!!????!!! Try the SAME interval as you should replace your air filter. It should be every 30,000 miles. Sooner if your drive in dirt, or dusty enviroments.
If you use cheap gas, Regular Unleaded, I replace mine every 20,000 miles. Its a good idea to replace sooner when using Regualr unleaded because more dirt and debris gets into the gas tanks at stations because they are needed to be filled much more frequently than the Supreme.
So Replace it ATLEAST every 30,000 miles, or 3 years, which ever comes first!

Funny you mention 10 years.....I just changed the fuel filter on my 93 Ranger that my dad bought brand new. Lets just say the filter on there was the original one. Boy she sure does get better gas milage now and has a little get em up and go low end. hehe

10 years, Not sure I would let it go that long...better change it than be standing on the side of the interstate waiting for AAA.

Re: How to Change "fuel filter"

I would change it at 30k. Did so in wifes car and had much better mileage from it.

10 years is a bit long in my opinion.
