1, remove pollen filter cover,filter and the bottom of the pollen filter holder plastics (torx scrs). This is all located right under the bonnet grill/bottom of winscreen area.(Pollen filter will probably want changing)
2 remove engine and raditor cover plastics 5mm allen key.
Now on the left side top of engine you will see the black plastic air filter holder .
3 Undo ALL allen bolts, including the one at the back which you can only access by removing the pollen filter plastics.
4 Change filter and put it all back together again.
5 Crack open a can to reward yourself

Having just changed the air filter i have learnt that its very very important to make a note of how the filter housing is put together.it was murder trying to screw the 4 captured bolts back into their holes. you have to position the top of the housing correctly to begin with.the car is 5 years old and it was obvious that the filter had never been changed! i now know why.

Hi can some one tell me why after fitting new spark plug motor stopped after about 10 minutes of use and plug required cleaning before restart


Dear
As you mentioned the plug required cleaning, indicates the plug gets carbon due to un burnt oil or dirty. Pl. check fuel filter air filter for clean. If the plug gets oily after 10 minutes it may be due to the oil ring of the piston of that particular cylinder. If its so it has to be restored at workshop.

Thanks.

I need a picture of my motor in my celica gt 2000 so i ca locate my ful filter


Removal & Installation Look for the filter on the side of the fenderwell under the hood, if not on either side look on the firewall mounted with 1 bolt.

Print

CAUTION Observe all applicable safety precautions when working around fuel. Whenever servicing the fuel system, always work in a well ventilated area. Do NOT allow fuel spray or vapors to come in contact with a spark or open flame. Keep a dry chemical fire extinguisher near the work area. Always keep fuel in a container specifically designed for fuel storage; also, always properly seal fuel containers to avoid the possibility of fire or explosion.
There are two types of fittings used on fuel filter connections. The banjo fitting or union bolt type uses a bolt and two washers to prevent leakage between an eyelet and the filter. The flare fitting type uses no washers or bolts. It uses a thread interference pattern to make a tight connection.

  1. Unbolt the retaining screws and remove the protective shield (if equipped) for the fuel filter.
  2. Place a pan under the delivery pipe (large connection) to catch the dripping fuel and SLOWLY loosen the banjo fitting bolt or flare fitting at the bottom of the filter to bleed off the fuel pressure.

Fig. Remove the union bolt and two gaskets, then disconnect the inlet hose from the fuel filter

CAUTION To avoid personal injury, remember that the fuel system is under pressure. Release pressure slowly and contain spillage. Wear eye protection and observe no smoking/no open flame precautions. Have a dry powder fire extinguisher within arm's reach at all times.

  1. Remove the banjo bolt or flare fitting and drain the remaining fuel.
  2. Disconnect and plug the inlet line.
  3. Unbolt and carefully remove the fuel filter. It may still contain some fuel.

To install:
When tightening the fuel line bolts to the fuel filter, you must use a torque wrench. The tightening torque is very important, as under or over tightening may cause fuel leakage. Insure that there is sufficient clearance between the fuel filter, lines and any other parts.
  1. Coat the flare or banjo bolt threads along with the copper washers lightly with engine oil. Always use new washers.
  2. Hand tighten the inlet line to the fuel filter.
  3. Install the fuel filter then tighten the banjo type bolt to 22 ft. lbs. (29 Nm) or the flare fitting on the fuel pump side to 17 ft. lbs. (24 Nm) and all others to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm).


WARNING The fuel pump builds high pressure within the lines. If new gaskets are NOT used, a high-pressure leak may spray fuel onto the engine or other hot surface.
  1. Run the engine for a few minutes and check for any fuel leaks.
  2. Install the protective shield if removed.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Remove or disconnect the following:

    Negative battery cable. On vehicles equipped with an air bag, wait at least 90 seconds before proceeding Protective shield for the fuel filter If necessary, air cleaner hose and cap If necessary, charcoal canister. Slowly loosen the lower flare nut fitting until all the pressure is relieved Banjo fitting and 2 metal gaskets. Discard the gaskets Fuel line with the flared nut from the filter Filter from the mounting bracket

To install:
  1. Install or connect the following:

    New fuel filter Banjo fitting with a new metal gasket on each side and install the union bolt. Bolt: 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm). Flare nut to the lower connection. Nut: 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm). Charcoal canister Air cleaner hose and cap Protective shield Negative battery cable

How do i replace my fuel filter?


The fuel filter is mounted on the frame rail. There are two types of fittings used. You only need to look at the fittings to tell the difference.

There is the plastic "hair pin" type of connector. It has a plastic connector with a plastic "hairpin" clip that pushes through the connector. Just pry the clip out with a screwdriver don't worry about breaking the clip, the new filter should come with new clips. Be careful not to break the fitting though. If you break the connector, you must replace the fuel line...not fun.

The other type is what Ford calls the "Duckbill" type of connector. I don't know wht it is called that...it doesn't look like a duck bill to me. Anyway., you can identify this one as a stainless steel connector. there is usually also a stainless steel lock clip that goes over the outside of this type of connector. The lock clip can be pried up and removed with a screwdriver. Once the lock clip is removed, a special fuel line disconnect tool must be used to releasethe spring clips inside the connector. the tool canbe purchased for a couple dollars at any parts store where you would buy your fuel filter.

You need to look at the car to determine if you need the tool or not. Both types of connectors are used for the same fuel filter. Plastic connectors - no special tool needed. Stainless steel connectors - special tool required.

Fuel not pasing to engine


There is not much to go on here from your description but I will give you the basics on where to start, Check the fuse to the fuel pump, check the fuel filter, if your not getting fuel to the engine it has to be either the pump or the filter. unfortunatly the fuel pump is in the gas tank o checking it is a little more difficult. Have someone turn the key on and get under the car next to the fuel tank and listen to see if you hear any humming noises. the noise should tell you your pump is running or at least trying to run and this will let you know if it is a electrical issue. if the pump is running and still no fuel, change the filter. you can also have someone turn the key on while you have the filter off and see if any gas is coming through the line, if no gas then the pump is not working or bad one of the two. I think too many people forget about this and it is straight forward and a good preventative maintenance. From my experience if it hasn't been changed by 40-50 K get it changed. You're just asking for fuel pump problems. The more restriction there is in the fuel path the harder that pump works to push fuel. It's located just under the driver's seat on the frame rail. You will need a 13mm socket/wrench, and a flat screwdriver to undo the supporting bracket/clamp respectively. A special tool is required on most models to release the fuel line; however, it is relatively cheap and can be obtained at your local parts store. It is used like a quick-disconnect to undo the fuel line.
Once disconnected the new filter is just snapped on the line with ease and the safety clips can be reinstalled and thus the filter remounted. Interestingly, take your old filter and turn it opposite of the fuel flow and empty it in a coffee can. To see just how plugged it was getting, try blowing backwards on the filter and you can see a lot of the sediment come out in the can
The real key to removing the special fittings from the fuel filter
is the technique employed using the special fitting removal tool. Once the fuel pressure has been relieved and the filter mounting bracket and band clamp have been loosened and moved out of the way, proceed as follows:

Remove the lock clips that are placed over the fuel filter tubing and the fittings. They should come off without having to use excessive force. A small screwdriver inserted into the open end of the clip at the fitting end can serve as extra leverage if needed to get the clip off.
Grasp the fuel filter in one hand and one of the fittings in the other. Try gently moving the fitting back and forth while it is still in place. Notice that there is about 1/8" to 3/16" worth of movement. Pull gently until the fitting is all the way back as far as it will move. Clip the special fitting removal tool (the tool should be designed to work with 3/8" fuel lines) over the fuel filter tubing. Now push the fuel line fitting towards the tool as far as it will go. While still holding the fitting in, use your pointer and index fingers on the same hand holding the fitting to pull the fitting removal tool "into" the fitting itself as far as it will go (the tool should "bottom"). Still grasping the fitting and tool together, pull them back in the direction for removal, keeping the tool inserted in the fitting (important). At some point, the tool will stop as it hits the fitting retainer "nub" on the filter tubing. Keep the tool pressed against the retainer nub (use ! ! your other hand now for this) and continue pulling the fitting off of the tubing. It should come off with only a few pounds of force. Repeat the procedure for the other fitting. It is important to push the fitting in towards the filter to engage the fitting removal tool as this relieves the tension on the "fingers" prior to insertion of the tool. If you don't push the fitting all the way towards the filter first, the tool will not release the retainer spring and you won't be able to pull the fittings off. This is the mistake that I made repeatedly the first time I tried changing the filter in my vehicle. Don't use the tool to try and "pull" the fitting off with - it isn't supposed to work that way.

I cant find the fuel filter on my 1984 cutlass can anyone tell me where it is at


On that year of car it should be in the carberator, you will have to remove the fuel line that screws into carb, and there is also a fitting behind that, that screws out of the carb too, it will be in that fitting, i don't believe there is one in the line before the fuel pump unless someone installed an aftermarket one.
