I believe all ranger filters are on thr drivers side rail behind the cab, Also I think it is just a standard screw driver is all you need. I did mine a long time ago and barely remember!

You really dont need a special tool.

Use your finger to compress the orange and green clips and pull it off the filter.

Pull the fuel pump fuse and start the truck to release the pressure from the fuel system

If you dont have a owners manual click here. In road side emergencies is a list of fuses

If you don't want to find the use for the fuel pump, you can also activate the fuel cutoff switch (forget the exact term for it), then run it till the truck stalls itself out.

Interita switch in the passenger foot area up by the fire wall?

When I did mine I just took the gas cap off, it took alot of the pressure out, and only leaked from what was left inside the filter.
