Radatior and fuel filter questions

Hi y'all! ✌️
So I have a small leak coming from my fuel filter on my 93 YJ.
I pretty sure changing it out would remedy my problem. Anyone have any idea of how hard it is to change? I know I have to depressurize my fuel system and whatnot. But all in all, how hard is it to change and is it something I can do myself, or is is a little risky and should I bring it to my mechanic?

Question 2. I'm going to need a radiatior somewhere along the line. Will radiators fit from other model jeeps? Thanks!

Keep jeepin'! ✌️

Fuel filter is an easy fix. The hardest part about that is getting the filter retaining clip back on after you replace the old filter. You will want to check your hoses while you are down there. There is a rubber elbow just behind the filter that I had to replace on my 93. As for the radiator Buy a new one! You can get them on eBay for as low as $60. I went through my local car quest for $119 + tax. Be ready to do some searching for new body clip nuts. Mine were shot and needed replaced. The only other problem I encountered with the radiator is that it was tapped for machine threads but the bolts I took off the old tank were a course thread. I also replaced my drive belt with my radiator off. Check you may need one too Another $22 plus flush and fill.

I will add and I'm sure it's not popular with all but i ran a tank with seafoam in it just before I did the fuel filter. Can't hurt. Also no one told me about depressurization of the fuel system. Wish they had. I took a good shot of gasoline. Love that sh/+ ! it's a jeep thing.

Brought my jeep to my mechanic, got a hook up on the price so I couldn't go wrong. I'll prob end up just getting a new radiatior off eBay, I had no clue they were that cheap! 👍

Any more its cheaper to buy a new one than fool around looking for some one to fix it. E.P.A. just about put the radiator shops out of business.
