    mainly just the position of the darn thing, upper under the exhaust manifold and attached to the engine. had to go in threw the driver side wheel well just to access it. also the line on the back side of it was so tight that i broke it just loosening it.

    yeah the v6's are so easy. i changed mine at 100k for the first time and it was horribly dirty i dumped the fuel into a bottle and had like a centimeter of pure dirt (or whatever it is) in it.

    mine has 127000. when i dumped it in a clear jug, the trash that came out of it was just startling, i don't see how engines can run w/o having the fuel filter changed every few thousand miles. it may be just wishful thinking, but i seem to notice some slight improvement in the way my truck is running.

    its not wishful thinking man..........when a fuel filter starts getting full.......hard to flow the gas thru there. i guarantee you will get better mileage now.
