Question about 2006 Kia Spectra

1 Answer

Fuel tank air filter replacement.

My Kia dealer wants $90 to replace my fuel tank air filter (parts & labor). I am trying to see if I can do it myself. Where is the filter located? I've heard it is on the filler pipe and even have a diagram showing it to be there, but when I got under the car, no filter. I suspect they are only tacking on the filter replacement to supplement the "free" repair they are doing to a valve that is bad. Can you tell me where the fuel tank air filter is on my 2006 Kia Spectra and how to replace it? Is it an easy repair for a 'do it yourselfer' with moderate skills?
Thanks

    Kia Sedona getting P2196 error. Error first occurred when transmission fluid was sprayed into engine compartment by a repair shop. It seemed to remedy itself for about a year and has come back. In another thread I read cleaning out the PVC, ERG, and replacing Air filter may help. I am not familiar with these terms and would like to know if they are in the engine compartment. I know the air filter and will replace that but would like to clean the other two items as well before letting another repair shop replace the O2 sensor.

Actually you need to remove the rear left splash shield (black plastic lining inside the fender). You should see the part attached to the filler neck with a strap tie. You'll need to cut the strap tie, disconnect the electrical connector and remove the hose clamp holding the filter on to the vent hose. Install is the reverse of removal, just make sure to tightly strap the filter back to the filler tube or it'll rattle when you hit bumps. Good luck!

Check engine light sputters knocks and dies


There are several issues that can cause this. (1) Fuel Pump which is located on the sending unit in the case tank. (2) debris in the gas tank causing causing the debris to wrap around the boot or the sock (3) clogged catalytic converter (4) misfire of a plug or simply a bad plug (4) speed sensor (TCM) (5) bad air filter

Fuel Pump Assembly from a wreck ($60) plus install or new about $350 installed, cleaning of the gas tank ($90) or new gas tank $300 installed or used gas tank from wrecker ($125), plugs ($90 plus install), TCM speed sensor $250 installed (dealer only) and bad air filter ($20 easy install)

For Kia Sorento 2003-2005 the fuel filter is located inside the fuel tank and is replaced with the fuel pump as an assembly.

Fuel Filter Location


I called the dealer and the dealer said it does not have an in-line fuel filter, but there is one the fuel tank (actually, it is a fuel pump strainer part#FS233 for $10.oo).
Put the rear seats down and open the trunk for ventilation and open the gas cap for gasoline pressure release.
The fuel pump cover is right behind the rear car seats in the trunk.
Be very careful when messing with gasoline. I will be replacing the strainer this weekend, but I plan to siphon out the gasoline before I do (I just feel safer with the tank empty)

Car will not start without spraying fuel into intake cant tell if fuel pump is running is there a reset switch and where is it located its a 1997 eclipse 2.0 non turbo


there is no such reset switch located in the car. First turn your key on and listen for the fuel pump to pressurize the lines. Then check to see if the fuel is leaking from the  filter. If it is you may have got the connection wrong. If thats the case your engine is not getting the proper fuel pressure to run. Hence its sucking air. If that does not work you might have a bad fuel pressure regulator sensor that is bad. Its located by the TBI. Reference a Haynes manual for replacement.
also if you did not fill the new filter with fuel then you have air in you system and engine will not run. so try taking it off and filling it with fuel and then replace it.
--------------------------------------
turning ignition on removes air from fuel lines and primes the fuel system. filling fuel filter with fuel is irrelevent, as lines need to be clear of fuel upon installation. leave ignition on after installation for roughly 30 seconds-one minute. this will prime the fuel lines and remove air and most water from the system. if problem continues, fuel injectors. this is a common problem in 90-92 camaros. if cannot start car, you'll need to replace every injector, as it's not cost-effective to diagnose every injector. roughly 300 dollars in quality parts, roughly 4 man hours of labor. if rough start that requires push on accelerator (try this), run the car with fuel injector cleaner. this should salvage you injectors. if this helps proformance, starting, then for the next 3-4 full tanks of gas, add stp injection cleaner for every tank of gas. be careful, as this does not restore your injectors, but it helps clear away deposits which are common in multi port injectors.
