Question about 1993 Toyota Corolla
Mechanic tried to open the old fuel filter but he could not open. Can you advise what could be the problem? Should I leave the old one in tact and return the new one?
Unless you have a definite problem with the driving of the car, do NOT change the fuel filter. The metal of the filter and the pipes going to it are not the same metal, and they interact negatively with one another; they kind of "weld" themselves toigether...What this means is that if you force the filter off, you WILL damage the threads on the fuel pipe, and you will have to replace it, the pipe from the filter to the fuel tank. If you car is running OK, take the new filter back, and get a refund. Replacing the fuel pipe is a VERY expensive job. Trust me. I unfortunatly have done over 20 of these, for the same reason that you have, and I HATE this job.
