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

How much does a tune up cost


For a basic "tune-up," the rates as low as $30-$50 in places where the cost of living is low, to as much as $100 or more in expensive areas where more is included in the tune-up.
Most places will charge you for parts and labor separately. Often tune-up parts like spark plugs, air filters and fuel filters will run $20-$60. The hourly labor quotes are from $40 an hour, to over $110-$150 an hour at BMW and Mercedes dealerships in urban areas. In the San Francisco Bay Area, the ordinary repair shops charge rates from $55-$80 an hour, and ordinary dealerships rates of $80-$90.
Dealer 30k, 60k or 90k mile tune-ups can run from $250 for 3-4 hours of labor and basic maintenance, to over $1,000 at places with high labor costs and additional maintenance services, such as timing belt replacement.
If the mechanic identifies needed repairs, this can add a significant amount to your total.

Location of fuel filter


The fuel filter on your car is located as part of the fuel pump inside the fuel tank. It is not servicable as a normal maintenence procedure. To replace it you need to remove the fuel pump and then remove the filter. It is servicable and must be purchased from the dealer. It is meant to be a lifetime filter, meaning replace it when it is a problem or with the fuel pump.

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)
