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.
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.
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.
check for fuel pump hum by the gas tank with the key on, if no hum check fuses and relays (under the hood and dash) if they are good replace fuel pump. if you hear humming try replacing the fuel filter
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.
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.
remove rear seat, remove round metal cover, disconnect fuel lines and wires from top of fuel pump, jack up rear of car. remove gas tank straps, lower gas tank with a jack, install is reverse.....if you need to just replace the fuel pump you don't have to remove tank you Can access from under rear seat good luck and please rate -jeff
