Im swapping out the fuel filter today because it says that it may also cause the P0300 I have. Its original equipment 108K miles and its leaking a bit.
I have the manual and got the instructions, I am just wondering if these connections are going to leak like a sieve once I disconnect them and I need to work fast or do they seal up and I can take my time??
With the fuel pressure relieved I could see it being a slow leak but wanna get someones point of view who did it.

The manual says to remove it during the pressure bleed, and yes I had it off. I dont get the filter til wednesday so the filter is still installed. dont need it leaking all over the place for four days

:laughing:I got a face full of fuel replacing mine last year,not sure where yours is but mine is in the frame rail and hard to get to. They say the removal tool is good to have but I worked mine off without the tool.

Its in the same spot, on the left frame rail right above the exhaust joint. Thanks for the update, now I know I should work quickly and dont have time to play around unless I want a puddle.

Always learn from others mistakes ;)
