1999 grand voyager le how do i replace fuel filter


Hello,

To replace the fuel filter of Your 1999 grand voyager, please follow the steps below, You will be in need of these instruments, Line wrench set, 3/8-inch ratchet and socket set, Replacement fuel filter kit.
  1. Park the 1999 Grand Voyager in a ventilated area and engage the emergency brake,
  2. Walk to the back of the 1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager and completely unscrew the gas cap from the fill neck on the gas tank. Taking the cap off will remove the pressure in the fuel filter.
  3. Jack the back of the 1999 Grand Voyager up and put the jack stands under the rear jack points. Slowly release the jack so that the van is sitting evenly and securely on the jack stands.
  4. Slide under the passenger-side rear of the van behind the tire. Locate the fuel filter that is mounted to the upper part of the gas tank. This type of fuel filter has three fuel lines coming out of it.
  5. Position the drip pan under the gas tank in the general vicinity of the fuel filter. Using a clean rag, compress the fuel lines on the ends. The fuel lines are held to the fuel filter by a plastic clip. Compressing the end of the fuel line will unlock the fuel line from the clip. Pull out on the fuel lines. Do this to all three of the fuel lines.
  6. Remove the bolt from the fuel filter bracket with the 3/8-inch drive ratchet and a 3/8-inch drive socket. Then, pull the fuel filter out of the bracket and put it into the drip pan.
  7. Position the new fuel filter into the bracket. Screw the mounting bolt in and tighten it down tight with the ratchet and socket.
  8. Push all three fuel lines onto the appropriate fuel filter ports. Hook the fuel lines to the same fuel filter ports that they were hooked to on the old filter.
  9. Pull the drip pan out from under the van. Screw the gas cap back onto the fill neck of the gas tank until it clicks. Then, turn the ignition key on and off five different times. Crank the engine on the fifth turn of the ignition. Inspect the new fuel filter for leaks while the engine is running. Then, turn the engine off.
  10. 1999 Grand Voyager back up and pull the jack stands out from under the van. Lower the van back to the ground and slide the jack out.
Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

Location of fuel filter,its boggs down when applying gas to speed up,was told fuel filter is clogged but i cant find it


Open the gas door and remove the gas cap. This will help to alleviate the pressure in the fuel line.
  • Step 2 Crawl under the Bravado and trace the fuel line from the fuel tank. The filter is an in-line filter and attached to the fuel line.
  • Step 3 Unsnap the fuel inlet line from the filter. The filter is equipped with a quick-connect fitting that can be unsnapped and pulled off the piping of the filter.
  • Step 4 Remove the outlet line off the piping of the filter. This line can removed the same as the inlet line.
  • Step 5 Unbolt the mounting bracket holding the filter in place with a socket wrench. The bracket is held in place by one bolt.
    Replacing the Fuel Filter
  • Step 1 Attach the new fuel filter to the mounting bracket and secure it to the frame. Tighten the bracket snugly with the socket wrench. Ensure the arrow on the filter is facing toward the front of the vehicle. The arrow indicates fuel flow direction.
  • Step 2 Snap the inlet line on the filter. Push the line on to the piping of the filter till it clicks in place.
  • Step 3 Connect the outlet line on the filter. This line will snap in place as well.
  • Step 4 Screw the gas cap back on to the fuel door. Close the gas door.
  • Step 5 Crank up the SUV and let it idle. Ensure there is no hesitation or stalling

    How to replace a fuel fuel pump and fuel filter


    If you have a fuel-injected, 4-cylinder engine, your electric fuel pump is in your gas tank and requires that the gas tank be removed so that you can get at the plate on top of the tank that covers the fuel pump. That is something that most people won't do unless they are convinced that the fuel pump is bad.
    Your fuel filter is directly below the brake master cylinder, held in place by a bracket. Make sure you have the right tools to remove it because working space is at a minimum, particularly on the 94 Accord when it comes to fuel filters.
    Hope this is helpful to you.

    In drive mostly and idle it sputters and as no power i have a new fuel filter not on yet but engine light finally came on after i got gas today was on emty


    Check your engine oil and please put the new fuel filter on. Do not let your tank get empty if possible because you will get sediment from the bottom of your tank and clog up you fuel filter and cause the car to sputter or cut off. Make sure your gas cap is on tight after putting gas in you car. The leading cause of the check engine light is a loose gas cap according to car shops. Good Luck
