Also asked, do you have to depressurize the fuel system?
The fuel filter is located between the fuel tank and the fuel pump, and removes impurities that prevent your car from running smoothly -- a clogged filter can lead to a "coughing" engine, and even a complete shutdown. If you have a fuel-injection vehicle, you will now need to depressurize your fuel system.
Secondly, what are the symptoms of having air in the fuel line? Air bubbles in a fuel line can lead to stalling, hiccuping or refusal to start. Keep your fuel lines free of air to help keep your car running smoothly.
