fuel filter for 2000 ranger

Hello, welcome to Ford Truck Enthusiasts!

You should try using the search function ...there have been several recent threads in this forum on the subject of changing out a fuel filter.

In the meantime, here is something to get you started:

Rockledge:
another reason I posted "where is the filter?" is because the auto parts store all seem to say there are 2 different filters that could be used for my ranger's model and year.and they could be in different places..ever heard of that?

fuel filter for 2000 ranger

Every 90s model or newer Ford truck I've ever seen has had the fuel filter located next to the frame, on the inner side, under the driver's side door. A special tool is required to disconnect it from the fuel line, but that tool can be bought at auto parts stores usually.

I think the auto parts store you go to must be smoking crack or sumthing. There is only one fuel filter and it is used on all three models of that year. It does not matter if you got the FLEX engine or not they all use the same filter.

FG-1004

On my 1999 3.0L FFV, the fuel filter is a different P/N from the
NON-FFV 3.0L.

I just checked the Motorcraft website, and found the following:

Fuel filter for 2000 NON-FFV 3.0L: FG-1071
Fuel filter for 2000 FFV 3.0L: FG-1033

So, according to Motorcraft, the fuel filters are different for a
2000 FFV 3.0L.

fuel filter for 2000 ranger

I have a 2000 Ranger 3.0L FFV engine and I put a new fuel filter in a few days ago. It was on the inside of the frame under the driver's side door. I didn't even have to jack up the truck to swap it out.

My owner's manual calls for a FG-1002 and that is the part number on the old one. I replaced it with a Wix 33652. These filters have two connectors on the input side and one on the output side. It only took a small screw driver to pop the clips off and release the connectors.

fuel filter for 2000 ranger

well I found the filter and replaced it quite easily!!...I just needed a flat screwdriver to pop the clips off and crescent wrench to remove the one mounting nut..as fas as my auto parts store smoking crack,well this IS south florida..
now I just need to found out what is causing a clunking sound
front driver side.. I have seen some posts here that it could be the radius arm or something like that...I am hoping it is the shock absorber..should a stock shock go bad by 60,000 miles?

Give the truck the "bounce" test to check the shocks. No reason why the stock ones couln't go bad in 60K.
Did the guys at the parts store have to take a vote and count the hanging chads to figure out which filter you needed?

The filters are different because the E-85 is more corrosive and Ford did switch the connections, either 99 or 00.

they switched the filter in 2000. The 99 has 2 connectors and the 2000 has 3. Like I said the filter is the same for all three engines. It doesn't matter if you use Flex fuel or not. The filters are made from all plastic on the 2000 model so corrosive fuel isn't a problem.
