The fuel filer is located beneath the fuel pump mounting close to the left side rear wheel. However, this position subjects the filter to localized pit corrosion problem. But faily easy to change if you can order/purcahse the correct filter.

Unsrew the two clamp support screws to open up space to remove the filter in place, then retrieved plastic clip pins on either side of the filter and pull the tubes out. Install the replacement filter and assemble clamps.

How to change fuel filter


Raise the left rear of the vehicle with a floor jack.

Turn the ignition off and remove the fuel filler cap to relieve any pressure that has built up in the fuel tank from evaporating fuel. This will prevent fuel from spraying and running down your arm when you release the fuel lines.

Use the fuel line quick disconnect tool to remove the lines from the fuel filter by slipping the tool into the quick disconnect until it spreads the retainer and allows the line to be removed. Push the line onto the filter while pushing the tool into the fitting, then pull the line off the filter. When both lines are free, unsnap the filter from the bracket.

Snap the new filter into the bracket, noting the markings that indicate flow. Flow should always be toward the engine. Push the line fittings onto the filter nipples until a click is felt, and the line can no longer be pulled off the filter.

Prime the fuel system by turning the ignition key to the "Run" position for two seconds and then to the "Off" position. Do this three times and then start the engine. Check the filter quick disconnects for leaks then test-drive. 2001 mazda tribute, good-day !

Car will not start, engine turn fast enough to start. swapped relays still would not start. 2003 madza tribute.


Check if you have a spark by pulling the spark plugs and crank the car while the spark plug is on the ignition coil/spark plug wire and ground the threaded part of the spark plug and ask someone to start the car and look for a spark is a spark is present then ignition is fine. If spark plugs are wet and smell like fuel there is problem in the ignition system.

I GOT A 2002 MADZA TRIBUTE THERE A A LIGHT ON THE DASH BOARD THE SHAPE OF A HOUSE i DON'T KNOW WHAT ITS MEAN


I think the warning light is meant to be in the shape of a radiator - check your coolant level - it generally means your coolant is low. The coolant level sensor often fails on Mazda's however, so your 'problem' might actually be a dodgy sensor not a lack of coolant at all.
Hope this helps, Sherwin
