If you are smelling gas when you are at a stop, or at rest then this is your fuel pressure regulator.. mine went out about three months ago and i went and got the part from auto zone for like 50 bucks and put it on myself but it was very hard and tricky. you dont want to make any sparks because you could go boom from all the fumes. the best thing is to take it to a side shop and they can put it on for like 80 bucks after you buy the part. the deaaler charges like 300 dollars for this thing. i checked...lol

How to change 2003 kia optima sedan fuel filter


The fuel filter location varies with engine size on the Kia Optima. The 1.5-, 1.6- and 2.4-liter engines have the fuel filter located under the car in the front left corner of the fuel tank. The 1.8-liter engine has the fuel filter located on the driver's side firewall. All the filters have the same replacement procedure. There are actually two filters on the Kia Optima. A filter called a strainer is attached to the intake side of the fuel pump inside the fuel tank.

To change the filter follow this procedure:-

•Lift the hood and remove the cap on the fuse and relay box located on the driver's side fenderwell. Look at the bottom of the cap for the location of the fuel pump relay within the box. Pull the fuel pump relay out and lay it sideways in the box.

•2
Start the engine. It is not likely to start and even if it does it will only run for a second since the fuel pump relay has been removed, which disabled the fuel pump. This procedure will drop the fuel pressure in the fuel line. Raise the rear of the vehicle with the floor jack and support it by the frame with the jack stands. This is for engines 1.5, 1.6 and 2.4.

•3
Remove the fuel lines on both ends of the fuel filter. Use the scribe--a long pointy needle--to lift the white retainer straight up located in the center of the connector. This releases the fuel line from the fuel pump. Do the same to the other side of the fuel pump.

•4
Remove the bolt in the center of the fuel pump retainer bracket using a 10 mm socket. Pull the fuel pump out of the bracket.

•5
Insert the new fuel pump into the retainer bracket. Make sure that the inlet side faces the fuel line to the fuel tank and the outlet toward the fuel line to the engine. Install the fuel pump and bracket and tighten the bolt.

•6
Place a white retainer clip that came with the filter into the holes in each of the connectors. Just push it in enough to snap the bottom ends of the clip in place. The clip should now be standing straight up with just the bottom tips in the connectors. Push each of the fuel lines into the filter one at a time. Holding the fuel line tightly into the filter, push the white retainer clip down to lock the fuel filter and fuel line together. Lower the car and replace the fuel pump relay. Start the car and check for leaks.

Have a ford explorer 2005 xlt having problem getting it to start, have change the fuel pump and fuel filter, also change the crank shaft sensor and the cam shaft sensor, still not starting can any...


Your problem may be one of the following:
First check or just replace the fuel filter. Usually located under the car in front of the rear axle, drivers side.
Next, the fuel pump may be worn out. Usually they just stop working (running).
Next, check the fuel pressure regulator. Usually located on the front fuel rail, drivers side.
Is the vacuum line attached? Not leaking or rotted?
Also, do you smell a strong fuel odor when it won't start? May be one or more stuck-open injectors, or the coil pack is bad.
Checking these in the order listed will more than likely fix your problem.
The clicking noise indicates the battery can no longer run the starter, which also means the fuel pump won't run either.


Have you hooked a scanner to the computer and checked the oxygen sensor(s)? If they are bad they could lean out the engine. The MAF Sensor can cause starting issues. Check the filter side of the MAF Sensor for any debris. I have found feathers, leaves, rags, etc. in them.

Remember an engine needs three things to work properly...Air / Fuel / Ignition(Spark)

Where is the fuel filter located on a 2003 yukon slt and how do you change it?


Hello joeandirenej,


1. Raise and support you vehicle.
2. The fuel filter is in the frame rail under the drivers side of the vehicle. See image below.
3. Use a 16 mm flare nut wrench and a 20 mm wrench to remove the fuel line fittings. Caution must be use as gas will drain out of the filter.
4. On the outlet side line remove it from the retainer and position it out of the way.
5. Push the filter out for the bracket towards the front of the vehicle.

There will be an arrow on the new filter be sure to point it towards the front of the vehicle when installing.

To install reverse above procedure.

After installed turn the key on four or five times(Don't start the engine) to re-charge the fuel system then start the engine and check for leaks.

I hope this helps.

Regards,

netvan

What is the black cup looking thing that my fuel lines run to on the driver side of my 88 bronco 2 about midway from the back tire to the front of the truck because it is leaking fuel badly


Hi playerboy890,

The piece that you have described is the fuel pressure regulator,After you replace the fuel pressure regulator you will need to change the oil and filter due to contamination of excessive fuel into the oil pan.

Hi Paulvilla13,

I'm not sure if your '87 is the same as my '88 or not, but mine is located just in front of the tank. I also have to remove the rear driver-side wheel to get at it.

Hope I've helped, don't forget to rate.
