Hi 2005 2.5 manual kia soren to engine revs slow coming of accelerator when changing gear and speedo sometimes erratic can you help please


I have run into this problem on that particular type of engine usually changing the filters in a good tune up takes care of most of it if you have an electronic fed speedometer you could have a dirty sensor if its a manual cable it probably needs a little lubrication after tune up and oil change if the problem can persist with no check engine light showing tune up usually cures the problem put some fuel injection cleaner into the tank run it through after the tune up and 75 to 80 percent of the time your problem will be cared thank you robert

I cant locate the fuel filter on my 2005 1.5 petrol almera??? where is it???


the early models had the fuel filter mounted in the engine bay against the firewall. follow the fuel lines from the motor to the firewall. if there is no filter there then it is the late model and the filter is part of the fuel sender unit, this is mounted in the fuel tank and includes the fuel pump. this type is difficult to replace, and sometimes requires replacment of the entire sender unit.
Best way to tell is to call a nissan spare parts dept witn you VIN number and ask if this filter is replacable.

Unable to locate the position of the fuel filter


Follow the (usually steel) fuel lines from the engine bay underneath the vehicle all the way back to the fuel tank. fuel lines may resemble brake lines, they usually look very much alike. Find your fuel rail, it connects to fuel injectors, and then follow it to find the fuel lines that go to the fuel tank.

You may have to remove plastic covers from underneath the vehicle, one kia I worked on the fuel filter was halfway up the side of the fuel tank and we had to remove the whole undercarriage cover from underneath the vehicle to follow the fuel lines to it.

I assume you have the new fuel filter, so you know what you are looking for, if you don't it looks like a can with a fuel line coming out of either side of it. Similar to what an engine oil filter looks like, usually quite a bit smaller though.

Hope this helps :)
