fuel injected engine needs fuel filter

I have a 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager with a 3.3liter fuel injected engine.
I want to replace the fuel filter. The Chrysler service manual explains how to depressurize the fuel system before installing the filter. However, after the filter is installed the fuel system must be pressurized again. The manual doesn't give an explanation on that. How is this done? Do I need special tools? Thanks

You may have to cycle the key several times to build up enough pressure to start. The fuel pump will run for 2 seconds with each cycle.

You de pressurize it so it won't squirt or spray fuel all over as you take the filter loose. After replacing the filter it should pressurize itself when you start it up.
