Question: How to change the fuel filter?

I've got a 2006 1500 work truck and it's not starting. I think it might be the fuel filter. Is there a web site I can go to, to see how to change the filter? I know it's in the gas tank.

Thank you for any help,

It's probably not the fuel filter if it wont start.

Start by checking the engine computer for fault codes. It's more likely a failure of a critical sensor or a bad fuel pump etc.

Fuel filters RARELY clog to the point a vehicle wont run/start.
