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.
  3. Disconnect the banjo bolts and/or threaded fuel line fitting from the fuel filter. Use of a flare nut or line wrench is recommended for disconnecting and attaching this fitting.

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.

Where is the fuel filter in a 1998 honda accord ex sedan? the car is not running hot but it total shuts down and then will start right back up and go a little ways and shut down again


The Only Fuel Filter on your Honda is in the Fuel Tank. You have to remove the fuel sender unit from the tank. This is accessed by removing the panel under the spare tire. The suggested service is to measure the fuel pressure with the fuel pressure regulator disconnected and the vacuum line pinched. If the pressure is below 47-54 PSI the filter should be replaced.

What service recommendations would you suggest for a 2003 Honda Accord. 4-CYL? 130K miles


Keep up with the oil changes, may eventually do a full coolant replacement (No need for a flush, really), an transmission fluid replacement, and from there, it's all kinda' general stuff. Walk around the car, keep an eye out for starting rust. If you don't mind a little dirt, make sure all the electrical looms/exposed wires have no cracks in insulation, at least to the point that you know no bare wire is poking through. Make sure the fuel and air filter is doing good, all clean. Take a multimeter voltage tester, and the battery voltage, preferrably tested between the positive battery terminal and the bare engine metal, should be ~12.6V. From there, just keep up with basic maintenance. Might even want to get a mechanic to change the spark plugs. Even look at the headers for cracks.

What can i buy for my honda to do a tune up


New sparkplugs, filters, perhaps plug wires... the rest requires diagnostic equipment. I change plugs and filters and if everything is running okay and my mileage is normal, I don't worry about it. If anyone else knows more, I'd like to hear it.

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.
