ZJ Fuel Filter Replacing

Thankfully the 96 ZJ came with inline filter so changing it over is not a headache. Having never performed this before the only guide I could find online was this link.

How to replace fuel filter for 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee L6 4.0. - JeepsUnlimited.com Forums

My only concern is purging the fuel lines, is pulling the relay sufficient, am I going to have problems when new filter is back on or is it simply as this guide describes..thank you in advance.

I have never purged anything. You will spill a little gas when you do this so don't smoke or have some ignition source nearby. Dont let the crap get in your eyes. It may take just a little extra cranking when you first start up as it digests that air bubble.

96 ZJ Laredo, 4.0, 242, 230K
95 ZJ Limited, 4.0, 242, 140K
98 XJ Sport, 4.0, 231, 140K
All work well

I have a 96 too. Prior to owning this Jeep (got it about 6 months ago) the only thing I had ever done was change a tire and jump a battery.

New fuel filter was my first project and it really is easy... Since then I've changed the oil, did the brakes, new plugs etc.

After you pull the relay you can try starting the Jeep a few times to purge any remaining fuel in the front line. Either way some gas will spill, just be ready for it.
