If it has what looks like 3 little ears sticking out, 2 on one side and 1 on the other, just a regular pair of pliers is all you need.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 2002 Kia Sportage?


Hi there,

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!

Good luck!

How do you get the fuel lines off the fuel filter in a 1999 kia sportage


There is a special tool that pushes up into the filter to remove it. Most auto parts stores will loan you one if you buy the filter from them.

How to replace the oil filter on 1999 sunfire , the oil filter is surrouded by many things and we can not get to it. Is there a easier way?


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

Radiator


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.

Removing fuel line from fuel filter


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 Luck!

Removing fuel filter


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.
