OEM filters are good. Napa gold filters are good also.

the fuel filter is in front of the rear wheel on the passenger side. I would suggest getting some PB Blaster and start soaking the connection. One side of the filter is a plastic disconnect and the other is screwed onto a hard line.

Sorry...didn't see this til now. Hope you didn't get a "bath" of fuel.

No shut -off switch. You are supposed to bleed the pressure down using a fuel gauge from the valve located on the fuel rail.

Loosen your gas cap.
Remove the engine cover.
Remove the cap from the fuel pressure relief valve
Attach a fuel pressure guage and bleed the pressure down capuring any fuel into a container.
