The fuelReplacement is required only if the fuel filter becomes restricted.
filter is located under the rear of the car, behind the fuel tank.Relieve the fuel system pressure by removing the fuel pump fuse or relay and starting the car and let it run off the resdual fuel pressure before attempting to disconnect the fuel filter hoses.
Don't think there is such a device. You can pull the fuel pump connector under the rear seat or try removing the fuel pump fuse located in the engine compartment or under driver's side dash. Once fuel pump is disabled start the car and let it run till it stops to relieve fuel system pressure.
The Fiero is equipped with a electric fuel pump and gauge sending unit mounted in the fuel tank. The pump is serviced and a complete unit by removing the fuel tank. REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
To reduce the risk of fire and personal injury, it is necessary to relieve the fuel system pressure before servicing any fuel system component. If this procedure is not performed, fuel may be sprayed out of the connection under pressure. Always keep a dry chemical (Class B) fire extinguisher near the work area.
Disconnect the negative (-) battery cable.
Relieve the fuel system pressure.
Remove the fuel pump fuse from the fuse block located in the passenger compartment. Start the engine and run until the engine stops due to the lack of fuel. Crank the engine for 3 seconds to ensure all pressure is relieved.
Drain all the fuel from the tank using a suction pump.
Raise the vehicle and support with jackstands.
Disconnect the wiring from the tank.
Remove the ground wire retaining screw from under the body.
Disconnect all hoses and filler neck from the tank.
Support the tank on a jack and remove the retaining strap nuts.
Lower the tank enough to disconnect the fuel sending unit wires.
Disconnect the fuel line, vapor line and return line.
Remove the tank from the vehicle.
Remove the fuel gauge/pump retaining ring by turning the cam lock ring counterclockwise using a spanner wrench such as tool J-24187.
Remove the gauge unit and the pump.
Inspect the fuel pump attaching hose for any signs of deterioration and replace if necessary. Also, check the rubber sound insulator at the bottom of the pump.
Push the fuel pump assembly into the attaching hose.
Using a new O-ring seal, install the pump assembly into the tank.
Install the cam lock ring over the pump and lock by turning clockwise with a spanner wrench J-24187 or equivalent.
Support the tank on a suitable jack.
Raise the tank enough to connect all fuel and filler hoses.
Connect all electrical wires to the pump and tank.
Raise the tank and install the retaining strap nuts. Use new sound reducing pad if they are damaged. Check all connections and wire to ensure proper installation before refilling the tank.
Refill the tank with unleaded fuel. Reconnect the negative (-) battery cable.
Start the engine and check for fuel leaks and gauge operation.
IMPORTANT: Do not skip the fuel system pressure release step. Injury and other damage can result! Safety Step! Relieving Fuel System Pressure
· allow engine to cool · relieve fuel system pressure · put on your eye protection Before you begin the job of replacing your fuel filter, you must
relieve the pressure in your fuel system. A fuel injection system
operates under very high pressure. If you don't release this pressure
before you start unscrewing fuel lines the result can be explosive. Do
this before you attempt to change the fuel filter. To release the
pressure in your fuel lines (and fuel filter) you'll need to locate the
fuel pump fuse in the fuse box. If you don't have a fuel pump fuse,
find the relay that operates the fuel pump. Once you've found the fuel
pump fuse or relay, start the car. With the engine running, pull the
fuse or relay out. If you pulled the right one, the engine will quickly
die. Since it's using all of the pressurized fuel in the system, the
fuel lines won't be pressurized when you crack the fittings on your
fuel filter. Now that you've relieved the fuel pressure you can remove the old fuel filter. If you didn't do this yet, you must go to the previous step and do it. Very dangerous!
yes it's under pressure can can do it by starting the car pull the fuel pump fuse and allow it to die try and restart the car a couple times with the fuse removed after that the pressure should be relieved. if you have a fuel pressure gauge you can do it by connecting it to the strader valve and relieving it that way also
remove negative cable from battery, relieve fuel pressure(by removing fuse and run till it dies, or relieve pressure from shraider valve on engine) the filter is just ahead of gas tank,depress the white disconnect tabs , and remove line. use a wrench for other side of filter, detach fuel filter holder and remove. installation is in reverse order.
