Where is the fuel pressure release in the 03 silverado so i can change the fuel filter? Is it an easy repair i can do myself?


the pressure release valve is located on the fuel rail under the hood at the intake manifold.it should have a cap that is removed and will look like a tire schrader valve and if you push down on the valve it will release fuel pressure.you can also release pressure if you let the car sit for a half hour and disconnect the fuel line,wiggle it as it is almost completely disconnected.you will get some fuel out past the fitting and this should release the pressure also.note you will still get fuel coming out of the filter when removing the lines and the filter from the car.

If you have traced the fuel lines between the tank and the engine and haven't seen it, you have to drop the tank. Is some dodges you have to drop the tank and replace the fuel filter. Sometimes they don't sell the filter you have to buy the whole pump. hope this helps

99 Astro van. This engine has a supply and return line from the injectors. Is it possible to flush the system by plugging the return line and running a can of injector flush through the system myself...


You may further cause problems. I would recommend disconnecting the fuel line at the injectors, and disconnecting the fuel line before the gas tank, making sure there isn't a fuel filter along the way. If there is, then disconnect the fuel line at the filter. Use a compressor and blow air from the injector side, down to the filter end. Make sure you try and keep as much moisture out of the line as possible. You can do this with each segment of fuel line to flush out any particles that may have clogged your lines. Your filter may be your main problem. Try changing that first!

I am changing the Fuel Filter In my 1991 SAAB 900 Turbo I bought it from someone who had it sitting in their yard for 3 years and though It would be good preventive maintenance to flush coolant, change oil...


LOOK UNDER CAR FUEL FILTER LOCATED FORWARD OF FUEL TANK. RELIEF FUEL PRESSURE BY DISCONNECTING THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR AT THE FUEL PUMP OR REMOVE FUSE.CRANK CAR UNTIL DIES FROM LACK OF FUEL. THEN REMOVE FUEL FILTER USE IN LINE WRENCH AND OPEN WRENCH.THIS KEEP YOU FROM DAMAGING FUEL LINES.WHEN INSTALLING FUEL FILTER THE ARROWS SHOULD BE POINTING IN DIRECTION OF FLOW.

WARNING Fuel supply lines on all vehicles equipped with fuel injected engines will remain pressurized for long periods after engine shutdown. The pressure must be relieved before servicing these fuel systems.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Depressurize the fuel system.
  3. Remove the filter bracket retainer.
  4. For plastic type fittings:
    1. Grasp the filter and one fuel line fitting. Twist the quick connect fitting 1 / 4 turn in each direction to loosen any dirt within the fitting. Repeat for the other fuel line fitting.
    2. Squeeze the plastic retainer release tabs and pull the connection apart. Repeat for the other fitting.

  5. For metal type fittings:
    1. Use a fuel pipe quick-connect separator J37088 or equivalent. This is available from your local parts store.
    2. Insert the tool into the female side of the connector, then push inward to release locking tabs. Pull the connection apart.
