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.
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.
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.
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.

Remove the outlet line off the piping of the filter. This line can removed the same as the inlet line.

Snap the inlet line on the filter. Push the line on to the piping of the filter till it clicks in place.
Connect the outlet line on the filter. This line will snap in place as well.
Screw the gas cap back on to the fuel door. Close the gas door.

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.
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

Be carful some of them have clips holding fuel lines on. might have to tak tank off, but that might lead to a leaking tank,straps a hole lot of mess. Best way is to take off filter, leave off put rubber hose on fuel line and put into a fuel can turn on the key and wait to empty.hope not to much gas in tank.
