The fuel filter is in-line. It is located under the vehicle on the driver's side. It is very close to the rear of the driver's door. It is not very big and very easy to change. You will see the fuel lines running along the bottom of the car. Just follow it until you see the filter. It is about a foot and a half in front of the rear wheel on the driver's side. it is very close to the outer part of the car, maybe about six inches.

Having problems with my 1998 Pontiac firebird. When I sit with the air on my car sometimes start to shake or even smoke. I don't know if it's the exhausts or something dealing with it breathing. Whatever...


A bunch of things can cause this.
It could be the engine idle speed is too low, can be caused by a faulty Idle Air Control valve. Watch the rev counter when it does it and see if it's very low. See if it rises when you turn off the air con. The air con puts a load on the engine which should be adjusted for by the IAC valve (automatically opens the throttle very slightly to keep the engine speed from getting too low).
Also possible to be fuel pressure, Mass Air Flow sensor, ignition coil, spark plugs or even a blocked air filter.
Is the check engine light on?
Try looking at Pontiac firebird forums. Google search firebird idle faults. Good luck.

1996 pontiac firebird will start up and then it will die . The fuel pump is working.


Well the fuel filter would be an easy choice, but it could be something electrical.
You'll need to figure out if you are missing fuel pressure or spark when it stops running to know how to proceed.

Why is my 1995 3.4 liter 6 cylinder Pontiac firebird less fuel efficient than it was 2 months ago and how do i change the fuel pump


I don't know why its not fuel efficient. But the fuel pump is inside the fuel tank. you should not attempt to replace it yourself, and don't change it on a whim. prove that's its bad, its an expensive guess.

1998 3800 v6 firebird... wont run right after starting


Possibly a weak fuel pump, idle air control valve, vacuum leaks, or loose or damaged wiring in the ignition system. Check for vacuum leaks first. That's the only one that won't cost anything. Make sure all intake bolts are tight, and all hoses are connected properly and in good condition.

1998 Firebird fuel filter


Need more information. Has car been sitting? Is it getting fuel to the intake? ( injector or throttle body?) What engine does it have? What type of carb. does it have? fuel injection, carb., or throttle body? Pull off a plug wire, and check it for spark....does ignition spark? Check timing for jumping. could have jumped timing belt? you need someone to help you visualize and troubleshoot.
