The fuel filter is located right below the battery to the right. If you intend changing it, here are a few steps to help. Firstly, remove the screw from the metal bracket that is holding the fuel filter. To get the quick connect fuel line fittings off, you need a disconnect tool. I got a pack of 6 at Advance Auto for $12. The small gray one fits the 2001 Sportage.
Put the plastic tool under the fuel line fitting and squeeze together. The fuel line will pop off the old filter. To remove the rear fuel line, I had to go under the vehicle and use the tool on the fuel line. There is a rubber hose with 2 quick connect fittings. One end attaches to the filter and the other end attaches to a metal fuel line under vehicle. Remove the fitting that attaches to the metal line since there is no room on the back of filter for the tool to fit. Once you get the whole assembly out of the car, you can work on getting the fitting off the rear of the old filter. Be very careful not to damage the plastic quick connect fittings!
You can use a pick to remove the plastic clip,And use a fuel line disconnect tool to release to line.If you do not have that tool you can get one at advance auto parts.Be patient it may take some time to remove it.
Place one wheel chock in front of
each of the Sunfire's front tires. Lift the rear of the Sunfire with a floor
jack. Then support the weight of the vehicle with one jack stand placed under
each rear axle.
Locate the fuel filter. The fuel filter is a metal cylindrical piece located
underneath the Sunfire on the passenger's side of the fuel tank.
Note that one end of the fuel filter has a nut, while the other end has a
clip. Use a wrench to remove the portion of the fuel line which enters the side
of the fuel filter which has the nut.
Allow any fuel which is present in the line to drain into a bucket. Use a
tool for quick connect fittings to release the clip on the opposite side of the
fuel filter. The quick connect fitting tool is readily available at most auto
parts stores, and can sometimes be rented instead of purchased. Once the
fitting is released, pull the fuel line away from the filter.
Press the end of the new fuel filter that has the clip onto the fuel line until
the line clicks into place. Then use a wrench to tighten the end of the other
fuel line to the fuel filter.
Raise the back of the Sunfire with the floor jack. Remove the jack stands
from underneath the axles. Then lower the Sunfire with the floor jack and
remove the wheel chocks to complete the installation.
u just don't hook up anything to the cooler fittings on the radiator, it installs just like a standard radiator. All after market replacement radiators have fittings for automatic trans cooler lines, they don't make a manual trans radiator, u just use the auto trans one.
Hi, Fuel filters and some other hose connections on vehicles today use
a clip mechanism that is easily released with a small plastic tool.
These tools are available in most auto parts stores. They come in a set
to accommodate different size hoses, and metal barbs. Simply put the
longer end of the tool toward the fitting and press to release. Good
it takes a special tool to disconnect these lines. go to your local auto parts store and ask for the fuel line disconnect tool.once you have the tool put it on the fuel filter prong that the fuel line is connected to and slide the tool up into the gas line, at the same time pull the line away from filter. you may half to try this several times.also when the tool slides up into the line twist the line and push in and out. in short thare is a spring up in that line that gets stiff and corroted so moving the line around while the tool is in place helps free up this sprind.also spray a little lubracant in the ends of the lines before beginning.
