Having problems with your 2001 Ford Expedition ?

How do you replace a fuel filter on 2001 ford expedition

\015 Pulled up in yard tonight and before I could turn off truck it turned itself off and now will not crank. I assume and hope it is only the fuel filter but possibly could be the pump or something related to the recent spark plug replacement. Any suggestions?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 21-09-2020

Park the vehicle in a safe place and with enough room for you to work\012around your Expedition.

Loosen the filler cap, open the hood and remove the accessory cover from\012the fuel supply manifold or fuel rail.

Remove the black, negative battery cable and relieve the fuel system\012pressure. Locate the Schrader valve right before the first fuel injector on the\012fuel rail-the valve is similar to the air valve on a bicycle tire. Using a\012small screwdriver, depress the small stem inside the valve. Cover the valve\012with a shop rag to catch the squirt of fuel.

Set the transmission to neutral and lift the rear, right-hand side of\012the vehicle (passenger side) using a floor jack and support the car safely on a\012jack stand.

Locate the fuel filter under the frame rail, near the fuel tank and\012clean the lines and fittings on both ends of the fuel filter. This will prevent\012fuel system contamination.

Remove the nuts from the support bracket holding the fuel filter using a\012wrench or ratchet and socket. Pull the bracket off the filter.

Disconnect the outlet fuel line--the one going towards the engine--using\012a spring lock coupling tool, which you can buy at most auto parts stores. Then\012disconnect the quick release coupling from the other end of the filter by\012pressing the locking tabs; push the fitting against the filter and then pull\012the line off the filter.

Connect the outlet and inlet fuel lines to the new filter. Make sure the\012arrow on the side of the filter case is pointing towards the engine. Install\012the filter on its bracket and secure the bracket to the frame rail.

Lower the vehicle and connect the negative battery cable; tighten the\012filler cap, start the engine and check for fuel leaks.
