My filter is leaking at what looks like the exit. The side with one connection on it. Replacing it doesn't sound too difficult but I'm worried about that quick disconnect fitting. Does the solid fuel line have something that needs to mate with the fuel line, or is it straight solid like that connects with some sort of special friction fitting?

Necropost.

If it's leaking, fix it right away. There is an internal clip on the outlet side, and there needs to be a plastic clip on both the inlet and return fittings on the other side.

A replacement filter usually comes with what you need.

The filter came with some sort of plastic clip fitted in the outlet side, but nothing else. Is it supposed to come with clips for the side with the 2 connections?

For something that was supposed to be easy I am having a lot of anxiety about this. I also picked up the tool that is supposed to assist in removing the outlet side with the 3/8 solid line, and it's not clear to me how this works.

Also, why am I not seeing the pics that are supposed to be with this post. Those would help a lot.

Actually, you're good.

The new filter ( GF824 ) comes with a plastic clip for the outlet. Just slip that on the actual line first and you're golden. The original filter ( GF821 ) has the internal clip and was superceded.

I'm thinking of needing the plastic clips for the inlet and return on my custom setup. Should be good on the stock stuff without the clip. Just look inside the hoses and make sure the o-ring looks good.

The pics don't show up because Photobucket jumped the shark and decided to hold everyone's external hotlinked photos for ransom.

Did mine yesterday, she juiced me a bit, but took no time at all. Used GF824 Acdelco jaunt 32$. Haven't compared millage yet but it does idle smoother.

How did the old fuel filter look? Any comments on the physical appearance of the old fuel filter.

How long did you go between last changed?

There was some sludge in it, I have no idea when it was last changed. I bought the car last year. There was no maintenance done to it. I'm at 108,000 on milage.
