if its like the first gen cars, what you do is start the car, then disconnect the power to the fuel pump, then when the car stalls, the system should not be under pressure, and can safely change the filter
reconnect the power to the fuel pump, and start the car, and you should be good!
Best thing to do it find and temporarily remove the fuel pump relay. Then remove the gas cap from your tank. Start the car and wait till it dies. When you remove the stock fuel filter, it will still have fuel in it so make sure you have plenty of rags around it so that you can catch the excess fuel. You really don't want fuel splattered all around the inside of your engine bay cause it gets kinda hot in there and you don't want any surprises.
