Upper hose, $19. Lower hose, $21. Fuel Filter, $7.

An evening for the radiator hoses, Two hours for the filter. Tops.

Here'* how you do the fuel filter:

1. Raise hood.
2. Drink beer.
3. Find fuel rail.
4. Find cap on fuel rail and remove it.
5. Put rag around fitting.
6. Press in center of fitting like you're letting the air out of a bike tire.
7. Remove rag.
8. Reinstall cap.
9. Close hood.
10. Drink beer.
11. Jack up car.
12. Look at fuel filter.
13. Drink beer.
14. Press in white plastic tabs and pull away from black plastic line.
15. Dodge the fuel that is now falling.
16. Using 10mm socket remove filter strap.
17. Using two cresent wrenches unscrew filter from line.
18. Drink beer.
19. Try to blow through old filter.
20. Blow through new filter.
21. Realize you should have changed this earlier.
22. Screw new filter onto fuel line.
23. Reattach filter strap.
24. Push black plastic line onto filter until white clips click.
25. Drink beer.
26. Start the car (it will have to crank a bit, somebody let all the fuel out of the line)
27. Look for leaks.
28. Turn the car off.
29. Drink beer.
30. Remove jackstand.
31. Congradulate yourself with a well earned beer.

Dame...looks good but do you now have a fuel leak because you didn't tighten the filter lines with your cresent wrenches?
