I own a 2017 Forester 2861 DS Ford V10 engine. I have 28,000 on the rig. I want to change the fuel filter soon, will be driving from Washington State to Georgia and all the states in between. about a 7,000 trip. I want to change the fuel filter, would like to know location and if there is anything special I need to be doing.

Thanks

My 2004 F250 CC pickup v10 fuel filter is under driver's door on the frame rail and you will need a special wrench to remove the filter. Google how to change a fuel filter and you should get plenty of how to videos. I took mine to my mechanic and one hour later done.

I saw a Youtube video, a fellow made a special tool from the cap of a Sharpie pen. It seemed to have worked extremely well for him. He complained Ford's special tool didn't work, requiring him to get creative.

When Ford moved to returnless-variable-flow fuel systems (2012 I think), inline fuel filters were eliminated. So there's no fuel filter to service. And since the fuel system is returnless, less filtering is needed. The newer rigs all utilize a long-life in-tank filter instead, which is integral to the fuel pump.

You can buy the special tools at any auto parts store. They don't cost that much, but they come in different sizes which is critical. Some appear that they'll work but don't cause it's the wrong size. Even when you have the right size, it takes a good yank to get it apart.
