The fuel filter is about 10 dollars. It is under the car on the drivers side just about even with the back of the drivers door. You MUST jack up the car a bit and put a safetly block of wood or cement block under the car in case the jack fails. Wiggle under the car and note the metal gas line runing from the tank in the back of the car up to the front. Along the way is a metal "can" about the size of a Red Bull can. You must loosen the hose clamp that holds it to the body of the car with a slotted screwdriver. Then try to pull off the rubber gas line hose from each end. This requires some effort. On my 2001 each hose end is held onto the filter by a clip that must be pressed down on each side to "open" the clip so it will slide off the ridge on the filter. When installing the new filter BE SURE to squeeze this clip again and make sure it is grabbing the ridge on the filter otherwise it will leak. Test by gently pulling on the rubber hose. It should not come off the filter.

When disconnecting the filter expect to get some gas on your hands and arms.

Good luck.

Changing the fuel filter


This post is unclear.
If you're asking how to change the fuel filter, it's located INSIDE the gas tank, accessible through the trunk. You need to lift the cover with the electrical cord in it, disconnect another plug and two gas lines, then remove six(6) metric screws to get to the filter (and pump). Another gas line needs to be disconnected, the pump plug then is unplugged, the pump nylon clips gently pried off at five(5) locations, and pump removed from the filter and two(2) holding clips. The gas filter then can be replaced.

Car will not start no fuel getting thru checked fuel line and fuse


if you are not recieving any fuel from the gas tank to the engine, i would check the fuel pump relay located in a black box under your hood located on the drivers side, if your fuel pump relay checks out ok, then i would check the fuel filter, located under car, near the gas tank, question is has the fuel filter been changed, in a while , or how long has it been since it has been changed, if filter is changed, and still no fuel to engine, then i would suspect the fuel pump, and it is located inside of your fuel tank under the car, hope that this information has helped you.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 2000 Buick LeSabre, 3.8 engine?


The fuel filter would be located right around the gas tank underneath the vehicle but I do believe that it is electronic and is in the gas tank.

Truck shuts off while driving


Well, if the truck is carburetored, the filter is located in the carb, where the fuel line connects. If its fuel injected, the filter is located under the truck, on the frame rail, between the tank and engine.

Replacing fuel filter


Unfortunatly most dakotas have an inline fuel filter, its located in the gas tank because there not supposed to need regular maintenance or changing. Basically you have to drop your gas tank to get the fuel filter out.

2004 kia optima


My 2004 Optima did nt have filter exactly. There is only a filter bag type device on the inlet to the fuel pump. The fuel pump is located in the gas tank and is accessed by rolling back the carpet in the trunk... I have 165K on mine and never changed this filter. No parts listed at NAPA or other store for filter. Just put some injector cleaner into the gas tank every mont and should be fine
