if you have a 98 you need a fuel line disconnect tool, if you have anything else all you need is a screwdriver....very easy. took me 10 minutes to do in the parking lot of an advance auto. :thumb:

i need to change mine also. i have a 98 so i guess i need to go pick up that tool. so just put the tool on the end, pop it off, and plug up the new one? will gas get everywhere?

Changing your FF is easy as changing your oil.

why not pickup a chiltons manual. It will be worth the 12 bux.
