Between the fuel tank and the rear tires. Right in the center of the car. Pull the fuse for your fuel pump, run the car until it dies, loosen the fuel line on one end, then there is a clip at the other end take that off, and you done.

SOURCE: Where is fuel filter on 92 Olds Cutlass Supreme

the fuel filter on this car should be near the rear of the car in front of the tires and it should have screw in lines on it i believe a 5/8 wrench and 3/4 wrench should be able to remove the lines then you have to undo the bracket that holds it in place not sure what size this is.

Change EGR. If that doesn't work, change Camshaft Sensor and Crankshaft Sensor.

SOURCE: How do you change the fuel filter on a 96 Olds

Hi,

Fuel filters are easy to replace but let me give you some friendly warnings:

CAUTION. To reducethe risk of fire and personal injury always follow the correct procedure for disconnecting and connecting fuel pipe quick connect fittings. This will ensure good connections and prevent possible fuel leaks.

CAUTION. Safety glasses must be worn if you use compressed air, as flying dirt prticles may cause eye injury.

Important

The fuel filter is no longer serviced in regular maintenande intervals. It is only necessary to replace the fuel filter in the case of damage or a clogged filter.

Before replacing a fuel filter it is necessary to relieve fuel system pressure.

Your fuel filter is located under the vehicle, driver side, below seating area, front of fuel tank, mounted on frame rail in fuel line




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.

Removing a Fuel Filter on an EFI Vehicle

fps23-02.jpg Loosen the fuel tank filler cap to relieve any fuel tank vapor pressure.

fps23-03.jpg Wrap a shop towel around the Schrader valve on the fuel rail and remove the dust cap from the valve.

fps23-04.jpg Connect the fuel pressure gauge to the Schrader valve.

fps23-05.jpg Install the free end of the gauge bleed hose into an approved gasoline container, and open the gauge bleed valve to relieve the fuel pressure.

fps23-06.jpg Place the vehicle on the hoist and position the lift arms according to manufacturer's recommendations. Then raise the vehicle.

fps23-07.jpg Flush the fuel filter line connectors with water, and use compressed air to blow debris off and away from the connectors.

fps23-08.jpg Follow the recommended procedures for disconnecting the fuel inlet connector.

Follow the recommended procedures for disconnecting the fuel outlet connector, then remove the fuel filter.

Installing Fuel Filters
In-line fuel filters are installed in the fuel line. In carbureted engines, the in-line gasoline filter is usually installed between the fuel pump and the carburetor. In vehicles with a fuel injection system, the location of the fuel filter is determined by the manufacturer. An arrow on the filter shows the direction of fuel flow.

  • To install a new filter, begin by wiping the male tube ends of the new filter with a clean shop towel.
  • Apply a few drops of clean engine oil to the male tube ends on the filter.
  • Check the quick connectors to be sure the large collar on each connector has rotated back to the original position. The springs must be visible on the inside diameter of each quick connector.
  • Then install the filter in the proper direction and leave the mounting bolt slightly loose.
  • Install the outlet connector onto the filter outlet tube and press the connector firmly in place until the spring snaps into position.
  • Grasp the fuel line and try to pull this line from the filter to be sure the quick connector is locked in place.
  • Then, do the same with the inlet connector.
  • Now tighten the filter retaining bolt to the specified torque.
  • Once everything is connected, lower the vehicle, start the engine, and check for fuel leaks at the filter.
Have fun and all the best

Cutlass Supreme SL, 1993. When I stop, the car cuts out.


Chances are is that your fuel filter is clogged. Change that first. Be careful with the fuel lines if they are old, because due to the year of your vehicle, chances are they are old.

If after your fuel filter is changed and the problem comes again. The next step is checking your ignition timing, but I really feel that your fuel filter is clogged, or congested, not allowing fuel to properly flow.
