How do I drop the fuel tank on a 2001 olds Bravda?

Having a empty tank is real easy it is the ones half full that causes problems of balance But anyway jack car up and support then from drivers side remove the retaining screws around fuel cap and remove cap. then remove rock shield 8-10 bolts 13mm then access the filler pipe and vent loosen clamps these hoses are hard to free from tank.& on rear end side there are the pressure and return hose connectors squeeze clips and remove. With the jack and a small piece of plywood secured tightly to jack place against bottom of tank remove the 4 strap bolts 18mm slowly lower tank down 8 inches now reach on top of tank and remove 2 electrical connectors and vapor return line no clip just squeeze and pull. now as you lower the tank you will be fighting the filler &vapor hoses. But once out then this should have a snap ring holding assembly in tank. Blow dirt free then remove. To reassemble suggest coating inside of hoses with vasoline for easier install same with unit o-ring. A MUST examine the electrical plugs for burnt connections if so replace. Now put it back together.

How to replace fuel filter in 1980 Honda prelude

An '80 prelude still on the road? The filter should be very simple. Loosen the fuel line clamps, pull the old out, put the new one in, making sure the direction of flow is correct. Tighten up the hose clamps, run the engine and check for leaks at the fittings.

I need the location on where the fuel filter is located on a 1998 dodge caravan sport 3.3L flex fuel.

I believe the fuel filter is under the vehicle and over the fuel tank. You'll have to drop the tank to access the filter. Loosen the nut on both ends of the filter and gently seperate. Replace new filter and retighten the nuts. Secure the tank back.

Put a jack (for a flat tire) under the fuel tank, so you could control how far it dropped. Then remove the two screws that hold the fuel tank straps. The screws come out, the fuel tank is loose, lower the tank by lowering the jack. Now it is easy to reach the filter. One screw holds it in place. Unscrew it, it comes right out. The tricky part is figuring out how to unplug the fuel lines. Look at the replacement filter, note how the plastic piece inside each fuel line has to be squeezed to remove it. You need to squeeze the old ones the same way to release them. It isn't easy. Squeeze the plastic piece that is holding the hose in place until you can work it out. A few drops of gas will dribble out. The gas is NOT pressurized. Unsnap the old hoses, snap in the new ones (much easier). Screw the new filter into place. Jack the fuel tank back into place. Screw the straps back on. Clip the ground strap in place where the old one was. You're done.

How can I change the fuel filter in my Hyundai Santa Fe 2004?

You simply locate where it's installed. Loosen and remove fuel hose clamps first. Plug any fuel hose ends with bolts of appropriate sizes. Remove the bolts and nuts holding the filter to the engine.
Replace filter with new one, and bolt to the frame. Connect back the hoses. Hint: its good practice to disconnect the negative post of the battery before starting this job.

Need to replace a fuel filter on a 1997 Nissian Maxima

Read all 1st it's quite easy. It's mounted on the firewall, closer to the driver side. The filter snaps into its holder. Pull it free, then disconnect the upper and lower hose clamps. This is the tough part - getting both hands in there to stabilize the filter while trying to remove the clamps, especailly the lower one. Make sure the fuel lines are clamped so fuel doesn't leak. Once loose, slide fuel lines off, and replace filter. Make sure filter is put on the right way - there should be a flow indicator arrow on it. Retighten hose clamps (I always liner them up so they are easier to remove the next time), snap filter into place, remove clamps from fuel lines, and your all set. Make sure you depressurize the fuel system before loosening the hose clamps. (Otherwise fuel will spray everywhere - Not Good) Do this by removing the fuel pump fuse while the engine is running. Wait until the engine stops running, then turn off the ignition key. It is easier to get at the fuel filter if you remove filter box and the hose between it and the throttle body. Only a few bolts and clamps hold it in place.

How to replace the fuel filter on a honda accod 1997

You can find this underhood on driver side's below brake master cylinder. You will need a new fuel filter part # 16010-st5-933

tools needed: 10mm, 17mm sockets, 17 mm wrench, 3/8 drive short + long extension,rachet, 3/8 drive 14mm crow foot , 14mm short line wrench

this is a bit trickier to replace but it is simple..some people do the whole job from the top, that is when you will use the 14mm short line wrench,,personally i have found it a lot easier to loosen up the lower fuel line from the bottom ,,, Anyho ....

# 1 remove gas cap, to relieve fuel line pressure

# 2 raise the car up and with the long extension , 14mm crow foot , loosen the fuel line at bottom of filter DO NOT totally undo the line at this time or you will get fuel soaked,, put a pan under car so fuel can go there instead of on the floor once you totally undo the line

# 3 remove the 17mm nut at the fuel rail,( top end of fuel hose going to filter ) do not loose the aluminum washer you need to reuse it

# 3.5 remove the 17mm bolt for the fuel hose at fuel filter,remove the hose

# 4 totally undo the lower fuel line but undo it from the top ( engine compartment)

# 5 remove the 10mm fuel filter bracket bolt,, remove the assembly . you might have to play with it a bit but it will slide up by the master cylinder

# 6 once out, remove the 10mm bolt that hold the filter in the bracket., install new filter, make sure to line it up on the slot

# 7 if you look at the body where filter bracket mounts, there is an opening , below where the mounting bolt is, make sure to install the lower bracket nipple inside that hole,

# 8 before you install the 10mm bracket bolt, start the lower fuel line , from the top , make sure to turn the nut a few turn to make sure it is not cross threaded. once line is started ok, mount the bracket on the body tighten the 10mm bolt,,

# 9 tightem the lower fuel line ,,

# 10 install the upper hose, make sure to use new aluminum gaskets, put gas cap back on

Start the car and make sure there are no fuel leaks

1997 nissan frontier fuel filter location

These are the steps to replace a fuel filter.
Get the new filter from a store. Get rubber gloves and a plastic bag. Get plyers, phillip and regular screw drivers, and hole plugs.
Turn off engine. (Put out all cigarettes/cigars etc)

1) Loosen the gas cap to release pressure.
2) Put on gloves. You will get gas on your hands.
3) Loose the clamp on the top of the filter.
4) Work off hose on top of filter. Use plyers twisting back-and-forth and pulling up or pry up using regular screw driver or pry up using long-nose plyer under the rubber pipe edge. This will be harder than it looks. keep filter upright.
5) Plug the hole in the top of the filter. (It's filled with gas)
6) Loosen clamp on the bottom of the filter.
7) Cover filter with plastic bag.
8) Turn the filter down
9) Work off the hose on the bottom of filter.

To replace the filter reverse the above steps in reverse.
Plug the hole in the bottom of filter and dispose of the filter as per regulation.
