Where is Audi 90 fuel filter?

Car ran fine, parked on low fuel, cool restart, acts like it wants to start, but will not catch. Filter or pump?

    My 1995 Aud90 Quattro's check engine light comes on after 15-20 minutes of highway driving. I suspect the fuel filter needs replacing (many of the clogging particles drop out of the filter element and into the container after the fuel flow stops, but get picked up again as the fuel flows again).

    Anyway, I need to know where the fuel filter is in this model.

Almost ran my 99 taurus out of gas . After filling up the car started sputtering and barely made it home where it now wont start. It turns over. Is it my fuel filter now


Unfortunately, you need to locate your fuel rail and use a fuel pressure servce tool to determine if you have a pressure problem. Master fuel o ressure kits have the ability to check fuel pressure before and after fuel filter. When ever you run a tank completely dry it overheats the fuel pump. You should never let your tank get below a 1/4 because the submersed fuel around the pump acts as the pumps cooling system. When a tank is ran lw constantly it kills the kife of the fuel pump.

The car ran out of gas one day so i put some in it and went to the store and put more in it then it drove fine till it got low then it started acting like it was out of gas sputtering and what not.so i...


first replace the filter this is the least expensive repair..when u ran out of gas u may have sucked up (dirt) in the fuel tank.....if that doesnt work bring it to a service repair station an have a fuel pressure gauge hooked up to it....this willl tell u if the fuel pump is starting to fail...when u run low or out of gas the fuel pump can over heat an cause premature failure....u should never allow ur gas to go below a quarter of a tank since the fuel is what cools the fuel pump

Turn the key forward and listen for the fuel pump to prime. It should sound like a low humming noise comming from the fuel tank area. If you don't hear anything. . . it's most likely your fuel pump or possibly the fuel pump relay.

Car was parked and running and just killed on its own and will not start. does this sound like the fuel pump or maybe fuel filter?


If the battery is strong and charged, starter is fine, car ran okay while getting progressively worse until it died and won't restart now, might be fuel filter or pump. I've dealt with two cars with fuel filter issues. Both would idle fine, but run progessively worse under load and eventually die and not start although everything else checked out. Engine turned fast enought to start, battery strong, alternator fine, air cleaner clean, all that. No start. Changed fuel filters and done. Everything back to normal. Both cars were about model year 1990 (1989 and 1991). Replaced one in a parking lot and car fired right back up and powered on home just fine, whereas the week leading up to it it ran worse and worse, hesitated on acceleration and finally would die if you hit the gas. Fuel filter may be in engine compartment. Looks like a canister with an in and an out for fuel. Pump is in gas tank and is way more work and money. Good luck, hope this helps.

1989 Audi 90 Quattro problem


Try changing the fuel filter, first. If that does not work try replacing the pump. Also make sure you run 91 or higher octane.

Check the fuel filter, you may have clogged it when you filled the tank.

Ran out of gas


Hi you need to change your fuel filter on your car as it is probably clogged with dirt as the car ran so low.
It is fitted under the car near the fuel tank.
Change your fuel filter first then check the fuel pump fuse as it may be blown as well if the pump was not able to pump fuel.
It should be a humming or hissing sound at the tank.
