The fuel filter is located under the rear of the car, rearward of the fuel tank just above the rear axle.

    One side of the filter you will need a 16mm and a 20mm wrench to get loose, the other end has a plastic quick release clip. Make sure you blow all the dirt out of the clip because they can be very difficult to get released.

SOURCE: Where is the 1998 Pontiac Sunfire SE fuel filter?

Dear Oilzum, The fuel filter on most cars of that era are back by the fuel tank(where supply line comes out of tank), and usually on the inside of the frame. Find the fuel line from the tank towards the engine and you will find the fuel filter. Most are around 6 inches long and 3 inches around. Call me back if you need more help. quicbric(volvo man)

1997 sunfire it is not getting gas and stalling out when i drive less then 6 km.changed gas filter and new lines stil not working.help!


Here are a few things to try,
1. Injector cleaner...put two bottles in a full tank and drive it for about 50 miles on the highway. This will also eliminate possible water contamination
2.check your air filter
3.clean your throttle body intake with intake cleaner
4.Have your mechanic do a "pressure test" on your fuel sustem...this will tell you whether or not you have a fuel pump issue.

First listen for the fuel pump. when you turn the ignition to "on" , just before start, you should hear the fuel pump whining. What you need to do is remove the fuel line going into your fuel rail. Get a small container and turn the pump on and off a few times to get some of that bad gas out. Reconnect fuel line and see if that works. If that doesnt work, Next would be to change the fuel filter which is just behind the rear axle. Other than that you could drain all of the fuel by disconnecting the fuel line to the filter and let it all drain. I dont see a lot of water getting into your port just by leaving the cap off. You might have bought bad gas.
