    The fuel filter on Honda Pilots is actually located in the fuel tank and is part of the fuel pump assembly. Honda considers it to be a lifetime filter that never needs replacing unless fuel pressure drops under spec. To replace it, you can access it either by dropping the gas tank or, more easily, through a panel that is under the carpet under the second row passenger seat on the right (passenger) side. You have to cut a flap in the carpeting but be careful because there are wires under the carpet. I would suggest that you look for complete instructions such as those in a Honda or similar manual for details or simply find a forum where someone shows the procedure with pictures.

    BTW, there would be no need to replace the fuel pump if you only have to replace the fuel filter. However, if you are replacing the fuel pump, it would make sense to replace the fuel filter at the same time.

Where located the gas filter


Most modern vehicles do not not have an inline filter. The filter is built into the fuel pump that is in the gas tank. It not designed to replaced as regular maintenance.
If you think the engine is starving for fuel you need to have a competent mechanic check the fuel pressure at the injection system.

2003 Honda Civic Gas Guage says 3/4 full on full tank of gas


The fuel meter inside the tank has malfunctioned. One option is to replace the fuel pump. Second option is to bring down the fuel tank and remove the fuel pump and check see if the metering rod was bent. Now if you are not having problems with the fuel pump. I would deal with the gauge being low and continue running the car until the time comes to replace the fuel pump.

I got a 1994 honda civic today I thought it ran out of gas I put gas in the car now it turns over and it wont start


Check the fuse for the fuel pump, if blown replace it. If it is good. turn the key on and put your ear to the gas tank, you should hear a humming from the fuel pump, if it is not making any sound then the pump is probably bad. If it is pumping then your fuel filter must be plugged.

91 honda civic dx. Starts, runs for a few seconds then stalls


Try pounding on the gas tank with a rubber mallet or similar tool. (careful not to dent the tank) Try starting it. If it runs, replace the fuel pump (it's nfg). I've diagnosed numerous fuel pumps this way. Remember the pump needs to be replaced, if you drive it, you don't know when it'll fail for good. Hope this helps. Please post the results.

When i start the car it idles ruff and dies sometimes the check engine light is on. It dies while trying to drive when you let off the throttle.


My friend, you seem to have fuel problems. the honda have an electric fuel pump inside the gas tank. it maybe old and does not develop enough fuel to the injectors that explains why it conks out.
first replace the fuel filter, it maybe clogged that fuel cannot flow anymore. if it still conks.
check the fuel pressure at the fuel filter it should develop 32psi or more. otherwise, replace the fuel pump.
the worse is that your injectors are contaminated with FOD, you have to replace the 4 injectors.
