Question about 1989 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

Trying to replace my fuel filter, is there a shut off?

Before taking a wrench to the fuel filter to replace it I would like to know if the fuel is pressurized and if so can you tell me where the shut off switch is located? Note: 4 banger with a SOHC

My 2003 toyota camry is shutting off @ red lights. I think it's the fuel filter...i was told by a few people that the filter is in the tank/pump. I found the fuel pump. Is the filter inside? Is it...


Stand in front of the Camry and locate the fuel filter.Open the hood of your car. The fuel filter on a 2003 Toyota Camry is located in a black container near the driver's side of the car. If you are unsure of what you are looking for, find your fuel line and trace it to a black container about 3 inches in diameter; this holds your fuel filter.Detach the fuel line from the black container, using a wrench. You might need two wrenches, one to stabilize the hex flange and the other to unscrew the fuel line. Once you have removed the gas line, you should see the fuel filter. If you remove the gas cap this will help in allowing air in the system , remove the bottom line first .Using a wrench, remove the fuel filter by taking out the screws holding it in place. Replace the old fuel filter with a new one, securing the new filter in place with the screws you have just removed.

It sounds like the fuel filter may have reached it life time and needs to be replaced. The fuel filter should be replaced every 15,000 miles if not once every year to ensure that the fuel system is running 100%. A dirty fuel filter is the #1 cause of fuel pump failure due to extra heat created to push the gas to the fuel injectors, the other cause is running the gas tank less then 1/4. It's the gas that keep the fuel pump cool and not running hot.
Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter which should be located On all C/K's of this body-type 88-98, the fuel filter is located under the driver's side door inside the frame rail near the crossmember that supports the tail of the transmission. Replace it with AC Delco part GF-626, FRAM part G3727, or other comparable brand corresponding metal bodied filter. You should use a flare-nut wrench for the line fitting and one for the filter fitting. I'm not sure of the size needed for the filter, but the line should be 5/8"
For SFI engines ('96 and later) you need to bleed off the pressure in the line. Locate the pressure test port on the fuel rail under the hood, remove the cap, press valve to relieve line pressure and recap valve. If ground clearance is not high enough to get under vehicle and work, raise it with jack and rest frame on jack stands.
Caution: Fuel in lines and filter will run out once fittings are undone. Use fuel safe container to catch fuel spill.
Take wrenches and hold filter from rotating, while loosening line fittings. Remove Filter from bracket by sliding and manipulating fuel lines for clearance, and slide filter out of bracket.
Reassembly is reverse of disassembly. Tighten fittings snugly. Reconnect battery, turn ignition on (do not start). Pump will make brief whirring sound - less than 5 seconds. Check for leaks. No leaks - good. Now you can drive again.
Hope that helps, keep me posted. Glad to know you got your truck running 100% again soon.

UNABLE TO GET FUEL FILTER REMOVED


due to the position of hte filter it is very tough but with the right tool every thing is possible so you have to get the tool a crow foot wrench i think it is 18mm and hold one end with a wrench and twist the ****** out of there if you feel the line is turning i would take it to a pro.

I'm am trying to replace the fuel filter and i can not get it loosened for the life of me. any advice?


I REPLACED THE FUEL FILTER ON MY 1996 GMC JIMMY THE OTHER DAY. THE FILTER IS LOCATED UNDERNEATH THE DRIVERS SIDE INSIDE PART OF THE CHASIE.1ST DISCONNECT THE POSITIVE SIDE OF BATTERY, TO PREVENT ANY ACCIDENTS. THEN YOU JACK UP FRONT LEFT SIDE AND SECURE WITH JACK STAND.WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES BEFORE GOING UNDER NEATH THE VEHICLE. YOU WILL NEED THE FOLLOWING TOOLS; 20m,16m, and 13m OPEN END WRENCHES.TO BEGIN HAVE SOMETHING TO CATCH A LITTLE OF FUEL THAT WILL DRAIN WHEN YOU LOOSEN THE FUEL LINES.WHEN YOU LOCATED THE FUEL FILTER, TAKE THE 20m OPEN END WRENCH AND PLACE ON THE NUT FROM THE FILTER,THEN YOU TAKE THE 16m OPEN END WRENCH AND PLACE IT ON THE NUT FROM THE FUEL LINE THAT CONNECTS TO THE FILTER. BY HOLDING THE 20m WRENCH FIRM YOU REMOVE THE FUEL LINE NUT ON BOTH SIDES OF THE FILTER AS YOU LOOSEN THE NUTS FUEL WILL START DRIPPING FROM BOTH SIDES GIVE IT A MINUTE OR TWO .THE MOST THAT COMES OUT OF THE LINE WILL BE LESS THAN A CUP.NOW THAT YOU HAVE LOOSEN BOTH SIDES OF THE FILTER THERE IS A STRAP THAT SECURES THE FILTER JUST ABOVE THE FILTER,THERE IS A NUT THAT HOLDS THE STRAP YOU NEED TO GET A 13m SOCKET WITH A EXTENSION TO RATCHET AND REMOVE IT.LAST STEP FOLLOW THE FUEL LINE THAT GOES FROM THE FUEL FILTER TOWARDS THE ENGINE. THE FIRST CLAMP THAT YOU SEE HOLDING DOWN THE FUEL LINE TAKE THE 13m SOCKET AND REMOVE THE BOLT THAT HOLDS THE CLAMP NOW YOU CAN SLIDE THE FUEL LINE FROM THE FILTER.REMOVE THE FILTER AND BE CAREFUL THERE IS FUEL IN THE FILTER. TO REPLACE WITH NEW FILTER. REMEMBER TO LOOK AT THE ARROWS FLOW GO TOWARDS THE ENGINE
