Replace Fuel Filter on 2006 Chevy Aveo Hatchback


If the fuel filter is mounted inside the fuel tank at the pump it does not need replacing and is a permanent filter. All you have to do it follow the fuel lines from the fuel tank to the engine. If the filter is mounted in the fuel line you will find it.

I need to change the fuel filter. where is it located. do i need special tools ?


The fuel filter on most Mazda cars can be located on a bracket in the left rear of the engine compartment, next to or beneath the brake master cylinder fluid reservoir or as part of the fuel pump assembly.

On the Millenia, the fuel filter is located beneath an access cover in the trunk. Access to the cover is achieved by removing the trunk mat to expose the cover.


The filter on Mazda 3 models is part of the fuel pump assembly.

I need to replace my fuel filter. need to know where it is and what i need to do to access it.


Hi,

Regarding Fuel Filter - Under vehicle, driver side, below seating area, front of fuel tank, mounted on chassis in fuel line.

A device located in the fuel line to remove impurities from the fuel before it enters the carburetor or injector system.

INSPECTION

Fuel filters can be located in a fuel line, in the tank, in a carburetor, or in any combination of these. A carburetor often has a filter behind the fitting at its fuel inlet.

An external fule filter. Courtesy of General Motors Corporation, Service Technology Group. Engine heat causes fuel to vaporize, which can result in vapor lock in the filter. Some fuel filters have vapor return lines to allow for expanding vapors and fuel to return to the tank.

REPLACE

Fuel filters and elements are serviced by replacement only. Some vehicle manufacturers recommend fuel filter replacement at 30,000 miles (48,000 km). Always replace the fuel filter at the vehicle manufacturer's recommended mileage.
The fuel filter replacement procedure varies depending on the make and year of the vehicle and the type of fuel system. Always follow the filter replacement procedure in the appropriate service manual. The photo sequence below shows a typical procedure for relieving fuel pressure and removing a fuel filter.
