On fuel injected vehicles we have disable the fuel pump to relieve pressure on fuel lines,which may be secured to the filter with clamps. We have to check the owner’s manual for vehicle manufacturer’s recommended guidelines to replace the fuel filter. Sources reveal that fuel filters must be replaced every 20,000
