SOURCE: fuel pressure valve

You don't need to relieve the fuel pressure unless you are doing this while the engine is running.. 90% of the pressure is released upon shutting off the engine.
If you disconnect he filter there may be a bit of fuel that comes out..

But should you just feel you need to release the pressure look on the fuel rail in the engine compartment and there you will see stainless pipes going to the injectors on one of them you will see a black cap and under that is a valve like a bike has. press the center and this will release any remaining pressure..

SOURCE: how do i release fuel

There is no real need to release the fuel system pressure to replace the fuel filter. All you need to do is take the filter off. The pressure in the line is not significant enough to do anything when the vehicle is not running. When you reinstall the new filter, you will want to turn your ingintion key all the way on without starting the vehicle at least 3-5 times to pressurize the system and feed fuel back into the new filter. If you do not do this the cranking it will take longer than usual, but it will not damage the engine or fuel delivery system. I hope that this information was helpful

2002 ford expedition found gas filter do they have a tool to take it of with.


The fuel filter is installed with quick-disconnect fittings. You auto parts store rent and/or sells these tools to allow you to change the filter. Do not try to use anything else to release the filter or you risk damage and leakage.

Where is the fuel pressure release in the 03 silverado so i can change the fuel filter? Is it an easy repair i can do myself?


the pressure release valve is located on the fuel rail under the hood at the intake manifold.it should have a cap that is removed and will look like a tire schrader valve and if you push down on the valve it will release fuel pressure.you can also release pressure if you let the car sit for a half hour and disconnect the fuel line,wiggle it as it is almost completely disconnected.you will get some fuel out past the fitting and this should release the pressure also.note you will still get fuel coming out of the filter when removing the lines and the filter from the car.

Honda Civic Coupe. Year 2000 1.6. How can I depressurize the fuel system easily to change the fuel filter situated in the engine compartment.


Hi,

IMPORTANT: Do not skip the fuel system pressure release step. Injury and other damage can result!
Safety Step! Relieving Fuel System Pressure
· allow engine to cool
· relieve fuel system pressure
· put on your eye protection
Before you begin the job of replacing your fuel filter, you must relieve the pressure in your fuel system. A fuel injection system operates under very high pressure. If you don't release this pressure before you start unscrewing fuel lines the result can be explosive. Do this before you attempt to change the fuel filter.
To release the pressure in your fuel lines (and fuel filter) you'll need to locate the fuel pump fuse in the fuse box. If you don't have a fuel pump fuse, find the relay that operates the fuel pump. Once you've found the fuel pump fuse or relay, start the car. With the engine running, pull the fuse or relay out. If you pulled the right one, the engine will quickly die. Since it's using all of the pressurized fuel in the system, the fuel lines won't be pressurized when you crack the fittings on your fuel filter.
Now that you've relieved the fuel pressure you can remove the old fuel filter.
If you didn't do this yet, you must go to the previous step and do it. Very dangerous!

Best regards.

How do i replace the fuel filter on a 2000 Nissan Sentra


Fuel filter for SRDE20B15 engines (00-01) are in the tank mounted on top of the fuel pump inside the fuel assembly. Release fuel pressure by starting car and removing the fuel pump fuse, open fuel filler cap, remove rear seat, open fuel assembly cover by turning the screws clockwise, remove harness, remove fuel line quick connector carefully (if pressure was not relieved, gas will leak, make sure to release pressure completely), take out fuel assembly (watch out for fuel level sensor and temp sensor thingies). Pop top off the fuel assembly and pop fuel level sensor unit with screwdriver. Remove fuel pump harness connector, quick connectors. Pop top off completely, pop fuel filter+pump assembly out, remove fuel pump bracket on the bottom of it. Push fuel pump down from the top harness connector, Take out the rubber grommet (very important - car won't start) between fuel filter and fuel pump, put it into new fuel filter, and reverse all the steps to close it up.

I would change the fuel pressure regulator first, if no change in pressure the fuel pump is on the way out.I have a 01 silverado 4.8 and my fuel pressure is between 55and60 psi.
