    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:

    Changing your FF is easy as changing your oil.

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