    From what I have read, there is a little plastic tool needed to change the fuel filter. Anyone know where to get this at? I checked on amazon, but could not find one. There really isn't an auto parts store near me so I am trying to avoid running around town looking for a piece of plastic.

    Awesome! Amazon had it and I got the fuel filter from there too. Now, I am just hoping that will solve my problem (fingers crossed). Thanks.

    Yeah, I was looking at the before, which tipped me off to the fact that I needed get the tool. It also confirmed I had the right filter (got the same as you). Thanks for the help.

    Not that familiar with the vehicle, but where is the distribution box located (roughly)?
