I wanted to put this in general tech because it is a basic question. I need to change my fuel filter on my 95 YJ. I have the Haynes manual and they are saying to have rags, newspaper and a bucket there for the gas. How much fuel can I expect to flow out of this bastige when I take the old filter out? Any words of advice when doing this? things to look out for?

Seems pretty staright forward to me just need to know if I should run my tank low before doing it or if it is only gonna be the petrol in the filter that is gonna come out...

My guess is it will be any gasoline in the line that will run out. It won't flow out of the tank unless you move the open end of the fuel line below the level of gas in the tank.

The only amount of gas you will get is whats left in the filter. Before you start, remove your fuel pump relay, in the Power dist. Box in front of the battery, and let the Jeep run until it dies (this will empty most of the fuel out the lines.

The Haynes manual should mention relieving fuel pressure at the fuel rail. It's just the little valve on the end of the fuel rail the same as a tire stem valve. Just push on the valve with a scewdriver and a rag around it to soak up any fuel. That should pretty much take any extra pressure out of the fuel system but you still spill quite a bit of gas when you pull the lines of the filter. Have fun and be sure to wear eye protection when you do it since the filter will be right above your eyes. Wink
