Air and fuel filters are very easy to change. Hopefully you have had the fuel filter serviced at least once before now, though.

What also sometimes works is clamping the biggest set of vice grips you can find tightly onto the nut on the fuel line, and getting a big wrench on the hex on the filter. The hex on the filter body is less prone to rounding off than the line fitting it seems, just make sure it's a good quality wrench on the filter hex.

I tried this on mine, and it hasn't worked. I used PB on it for an 5 days, every night and morning. Then let it sit soaked in PB over night and tried again..nothing. I'm using so much force and it is so rusted that by continuing all it does now is bend the fuel line out of place.

Anybody got fixes asides from replacing the whole line?

I have used two small pipe wrenches,not pretty but it did the job. Also laying on your back is not the best way.Get it on a host if you can.

Buy the Haynes manual. Can't tell you how many times that's helped. Posting here is great, but unless you want to keep printing things out every time you have a question, it will help.

Someone (Dorman perhaps?) makes a repair kit for the fuel line for situations like yours. You have to cut the line just ahead of the rusted on fuel filter fitting and use the repair kit.

I think it's Dorman, anyone else out there know for sure.?

I'm guessing OP and he doesn't realize this is a 2009 thread.

Usually these thread revivals gets locked ASAP, but this one has plenty of replies.
