It is generally unnecessary for the transmission fluid to be drained prior to changing the filter in a car. However, you should check your car manual before carrying out the process.

Below are a set of instructions to follow when changing the fuel filter of a 1999 Ford Escort Sport.

  • Open your car's bonnet and then disconnect the battery cable (use a wrench if necessary).

  • Find the valve on the fuel rail and remove its cap. Attach the fuel pressure gauge to the cap and open the valve at a slow pace. At this point, gasoline may drain due to the high pressure within the valve. You should collect this gasoline in a tin.

  • Locate the safety clips on either side of the fuel filter and twist to remove.

  • Remove the fuel filter from the bracket in which it is installed. Then, install the new filter in its place.

  • Replace the safety clips so the filter is set tightly in place, and replace the cap of the valve. Reconnect the battery cable. The process of changing your fuel filter is now complete.
  • The function of a fuel filter

A fuel filter is designed to remove any particles of rust or dirt from the fuel mechanism. They are found in most car internal combustion engines. Fuel filters prevent fuel becoming contaminated and improve the overall performance of a vehicle by preventing waste and blockage in the fuel system.

The substances a fuel filter deals with on a daily basis tend to cause wear and tear in the system. This means a fuel filter should be replaced on a regular basis. Most people choose to replace the filter themselves, but if you are unsure about the procedure you should enlist the service of a mechanic instead.
