The fuel lines are a quick connect type. hold the steel line in one hand and use a small open end wrench to push the plastic collar back in to the steel line. it should go back into the coupling a little then gently push/pull the line off the filter. be sure to relieve fuel system pressure before starting. it should be about 45psi. the lines may not come apart under pressure, and you will get a gas bath

How to remove fuel filter?

Ask the dealer where your fuel power switch is located and turn it off. some turn off when you push them in. to turn it back on you push it in and it stays in. after you have located the fuel power switch and have turned it off, turn the engine on til it runs out of gas and turns off. it will run out of gas because you have turned the fuel pump powr off and the engine has burned the line fuel that went in to the engine. after the engine turns off, crank the engine for about 7 seconds. This will remove all the fuel pressure in the line. Your fuel filter will either be mounted under the car or on the engine fire wall. after you have located the fuel filter remove the two clamps (they may be metal or plastic) Take your time and watch how you remove them and you will reverse the order you used to remove the fuel filter clamps and fuel filter. It is a good idea to purchase new clamps with the replacement fuel filter and use them. Ask the dealer to explain how the clamp is removed and installed. He can demenstrate by illustrating it with the new clamps and fuel filter.

I know my car needs work and I will be performing all the needs

If the gas filter has been on there a long time, now is a good time to change it and fix that gas leak. Probably leaking at a fitting where the rubber line clamps on. Remove the old filter and check the ends of the rubber line that connect to the filter-the inlet and outlet. Look for cracks or splits in the rubber that can leak. Maybe a hose clamp was too loose and was leaking. Some people tighten the clamps too much, so the clamp cuts into the rubber and can cause leaks. Once you get the new filter on and fitted up, run the engine and watch there for leaks.
Clean oil is the best maintenance you can do for your car. Keep it up.

Best way to take it off

Acura Coupes and Sedans 1986-1993 Repair Guide
Fuel Filter

The recommended change interval for the fuel filter on all models is 60,000 miles under normal service. Severe service will require more frequent changing of the fuel filter.
The filter is located in the passengers side of the engine compartment.

CAUTION Before disconnecting any fuel lines, be sure to open the gas tank filler cap to relieve any pressure in the system and wrap a shop towel around the fuel line fitting before opening. Observe all fuel handling precautions.


See Figures 1, 2 and 3

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Wrap a shop towel around the fittings and using a proper wrench, slowly loosen the fuel line fittings.
  3. Remove the 2 banjo bolts from the fuel lines.
  4. Remove the fuel filter clamp retaining bolt and the clamp.
  5. Remove the filter from the vehicle.

It is very important that ALL of the fuel line banjo bolt washers be replaced every time the banjo bolts are loosened. If the washers are not replaced the fuel lines will leak pressurized fuel causing the risk of fire or explosion.
  1. Install the new filter in position and tighten the clamp mounting bolt to 7 ft. lbs. (10 Nm).
  2. Attach the banjo fittings with new washers in place. On Legend and Vigor, tighten the fuel line flare connector to 28 ft. lbs. (38 Nm). On the remaining models, tighten the banjo fitting bolts to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  3. Start the vehicle and check for leaks.

I can only disconnect the quick connect side of fuel filter. But the other side is like a solid metal mushroom head looking connection. I cant figure out how to get it apart?

I'm not real sure but you may need to cut through the line and use rubber fuel line and clamps. I understand it's very difficult. There is a special tool for this that doest really fit in the space. There's 4 metal fingers that hold the fitting together and need to be bent out to re ove the filter. Not easy! Good luck

I need to know how to change the fuel filter in a 98 gmc sonoma v6.

It is located under the truck on the driver side inside the frame rail remove the 12 M bolt to get the holding clamp off next get two plastic baggies and two rubber bands and a catch pan. Do this where there is no items that could cause a spark or a gas water heater is at that could ignite the gas. Now pull the U clamps out of each end of the filter, if you brake them it is ok the new filter will come with new clips there are two type of fuel filters some may have 2 lines others have only one but you can't get them wrong. Pull out the plastic pieces and put baggie on the fuel line and put rubber band on to keep it from leaking gas do this to all lines. next install the lines one at a time and reinstall the clips. Be sure to slide out the old filter from the housing then reinstall back on the frame and tighten the bolt down. Next Get in truck and turn the key to the Run position (Not start) then off do this 10 times this will prime the pump and fuel lines then try starting it, once it fires up it may run rough for a minute but should smooth right out. hope this helps.

Basic service

Here are detailed instructions on the location, removal, and re-installation of your fuel filter. Hope it helps and have a great day!

Carbureted Engines
These vehicles use two replaceable fuel filters. A small one is in the fuel line under the hood; a larger one is located at the rear, just inboard of the left rear wheel.
Whenever the filter(s) are replaced, take great care to avoid the entry of dirt into the lines. Also, pay attention to the correct installation position. It is possible to install the filter backwards.
See Figure 2
  1. If applicable, disengage the filter or hose from its retaining clip.
  2. Using two fuel line clamps, pinch off both fuel lines. Take care not to crush the lines; just clamp them shut.
If the fuel hoses are hard or cracked, it is necessary to replace them.

  1. Loosen the fuel line clamps and slide them back.
  2. Using a twisting motion, remove the fuel lines from the filter.
  3. To install, use a new fuel filter and reverse the removal procedures. Start the engine and check for leaks. Correct any leaks immediately.
See Figures 3, 4, 5 and 6
  1. Raise and safely support the rear of the vehicle. Remove the left rear wheel.
  2. Remove the bolts securing the filter and its basket to the fuel tank.

Fuel Injected Engines
See Figures 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12
The canister fuel filter is located in the engine compartment. When buying the new filter, also buy new washers for the banjo bolts and the service bolt. Failure to replace these washers invites high-pressure fuel leaks. Replacing the washers is required, not recommended.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery terminal.
  2. The fuel system is under pressure. Release pressure slowly and contain spillage. Observe "no smoking/no open flame" precautions. Have a Class B-C (dry powder) fire extinguisher within arm's reach at all times.
  3. Disconnect the banjo bolts and/or threaded fuel line fitting from the fuel filter. Use of a flare nut or line wrench is recommended for disconnecting and attaching this fitting.

Tighten the banjo bolts to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm) on all models except 1992-95 Preludes. On these models, tighten the bolt to 20 ft. lbs. (28 Nm). If applicable, tighten the threaded fuel line fitting to 27 ft. lbs. (37 Nm).

Where is the fuel filter in my 1992 Isuzu Rodeo?

Look on passenger side frame rail ahead of the rear wheel in a bracket with a fuel line on each end. Before starting replacement-- be sure to release pressure from fuel lines, by removing fuel pump fuse under hood and running engine to use gas from lines. I then remove fuel lines by moving clamps away from fitting so hose can be pulled loose from old filter while it is still in bracket. On top of mounting is a bolt that holds filter clamp in place . After removing clamp and filter from mounting bracket, loosen filter body clamp and slip oout old filter-- then in with the new filter. Then reverse your steps to install filter. After filter is back in place -- reinstall fuel pump fuse, turn on key for a few seconds for gas to refill lines, then start engine and check your installation to make sure you have no fuel leaks at line connections.
