Here are detailed instructions on the location, removal, and re-installation of your fuel filter. Hope it helps and have a great day!

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Carbureted Engines
These vehicles use two replaceable fuel filters. A small one is in the fuel line under the hood; a larger one is located at the rear, just inboard of the left rear wheel.
Whenever the filter(s) are replaced, take great care to avoid the entry of dirt into the lines. Also, pay attention to the correct installation position. It is possible to install the filter backwards.
FRONT
See Figure 2

  1. If applicable, disengage the filter or hose from its retaining clip.
  2. Using two fuel line clamps, pinch off both fuel lines. Take care not to crush the lines; just clamp them shut.
If the fuel hoses are hard or cracked, it is necessary to replace them.

  1. Loosen the fuel line clamps and slide them back.
  2. Using a twisting motion, remove the fuel lines from the filter.
  3. To install, use a new fuel filter and reverse the removal procedures. Start the engine and check for leaks. Correct any leaks immediately.
REAR
See Figures 3, 4, 5 and 6
  1. Raise and safely support the rear of the vehicle. Remove the left rear wheel.
  2. Remove the bolts securing the filter and its basket to the fuel tank.

Fuel Injected Engines
See Figures 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12
The canister fuel filter is located in the engine compartment. When buying the new filter, also buy new washers for the banjo bolts and the service bolt. Failure to replace these washers invites high-pressure fuel leaks. Replacing the washers is required, not recommended.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery terminal.
  2. The fuel system is under pressure. Release pressure slowly and contain spillage. Observe "no smoking/no open flame" precautions. Have a Class B-C (dry powder) fire extinguisher within arm's reach at all times.

85 HONDA ACCORD WONT STAY RUNNING UNLESS PUMPING GAS NOT EVEN FULL THROTLE


You have a single fuel injector in it right. Try right at the end of the gas pedal cable at the engine there is an electrical plug and a little device that goes around in a circle when the gas is mashed. That is the throttle position sensor. Try unplugging that and if there is no difference in the revving then the throttle position sensor is out. If that is not the problem, then plug your engine into a an onboard diagnostic reader. 85 is an obd1.

How do I change the cabin and air filters in a 2004 Honda Accord LX?


First, empty your glove box! Or everything will spill out.

On the right side of your glove box, you'll see a black hinge that connects to the door. Carefully unlatch it. The glove box will swing all the way down. If you didn't empty your glove box, everything will spill out :)

Look for a black plastic cover with arrows on the sides. Press them both in and pull. The tray holding the filter will slide out.

Take old filter out, watch for the direction arrows (they should be pointing DOWN). Remove, replace and you're done.

I buy my filters from Ebay and change them every year due to allergies.

Has anyone had a main relay problem with the 1999 honda accord?


It can be a faulty replay or your pump may be going bad. If this happens check first if there is gas coming out of the fuel filter or to the hose before it. It could also be caused by a clogged fuel filter. If there is no gas going to the fuel filter, have the relay for your fuel injection checked out. It is located under the driver side dash. Check also if you have any issues if your pump when directly connected to the battery.

1983 Honda Accord - possible fuel line problem


Flooded means there is too much gas and it blows black smoke and sputters when it does start, right? Flooded has to do with the carburetor, nothing else. There are little windows on the float bowls to see what the fuel level is. If the fuel level is too high it will flood. I sounds like maybe the needle and seat are bad and the carburetor needs an overhaul. If it sputters and no black smoke then it isn't getting enough gas and then your filter search may be the right path. The primary filter should be behind the left rear wheel against the body. Support the car and take the wheel off is easiest way to change it.

check your wiring for dirty connections or broken wires, you may have wires that are rubbed through or connectors that are not making full contact. you will need an ohm meter and check wires for continuity. a wiring diagram will be needed.
