There is a special tool you push in the other side to pop the clip off. You can find it at your nearest auto store.

Desperatly need a manual for 1991 galant mainly to see where to change a fuel filter


Hi Michelle, I search for your question, and I found the next answer. Have in mind that this was taken from a website.
C&P

I have a 1995 Montero and had to replace the fuel filter. This is an easy job, a bit messy... but easy. The fuel filter is under the chassis, underneath the passenger area, look for a black cylinder shape piece about 4-5 inches long with a couple of houses attached to it. Here are some steps: 1.You will need to open the fuel compartment to release pressure, to do this you need to remove the carpet area from the back (where the two additional seats are), you will see a plate with four screws - this you need to remove. 2. Remove the gas cover to release more pressure, 3. Remove lines from fuel filter, 4. Remove fuel filter, 5. Attached the new filter, 6. Reconnect the houses, 7. Put cover back for the fuel compartment, 8. Put gas cover back, 9. Finish. - Make sure to check for leaks and be careful NOT to break any of the gas lines while doing this work. -BE CAREFUL and take your time, do not rush!- On a difficulty scale of 1 to 5, I give this work a 3 AA

How to Replace a Fuel Pump and Fuel Filter in a Cadillac


The Cadillac has an electric fuel pump, and you should check its fuses and relays and ensure you have fuel before inspecting the pump. If your vehicle still has difficulty getting fuel, you can clean or replace the fuel pump.

Things You'll Need:
Fuel pump kit
Fuel tank sending unit wrench
Torque wrench Replace the fuel pump is challenge.
1.Determine which fuel pump your Cadillac Escalade will need. This depends not only on the make and model, but also the engine size. Models built from 1998 to 2000 have a 5.7 L engine, 2002 to 2006 models may have a 5.3 L or 6.0 L engine and models built after 2006 have a 6.2 L engine.
2.Prepare your vehicle for fuel pump servicing. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Relieve the fuel system pressure, drain and disconnect the fuel tank.
3.Disconnect the fuel and evaporative emission lines from the fuel tank. Remove the fuel sender assembly and the seal with a fuel tank sending unit wrench, and pull the strainer off the fuel sender. Remove the fuel pump's electrical connector and its retaining clip from the fuel level sensor. Remove the fuel sensor's electrical connector from the fuel sensor in addition to its retaining clip.
4.Remove the fuel level sensor by squeezing the locking tangs and remove the fuel pressure sensor. Discard the old fuel tank seal and fuel strainer.
5.Install the new fuel pump using the items included in the kit and be to replace the fuel strainer and seal. Use a torque wrench to tighten the attaching bolts for the fuel tank strap to 30 ft. lbs.
The following is the instructions of replacing fuel filter:
The symptoms of a bad fuel filter include a loss in horse power, very sluggish acceleration and, in some cases, difficulty starting. Replacing the fuel filter is always the best policy because you can't reliably unclog a filter. In the Cadillac Escalade, 2002-2006, they replace easily. The 5.3L engine filter replaces in a different way. Manufacturers suggest replacement of fuel filter every 60,000 miles.
Replace the fuel filter is easy.
1.Locate the fuel filter. Normally this is on the passenger side wheel well or just inside the engine compartment. In the Cadillac Escalade, it mounts on the fuel tank and is integral with the fuel pump assembly. Before removal of the filter, disconnect the negative battery cable and relieve the pressure in the fuel system.
2.Lift the vehicle to gain access to the fuel pump assembly. Remove the threaded fittings from the filter and cap the fuel pipes to prevent contamination. Inspect the o-rings on the fuel pipes and replace if deteriorated.
3.Change the filter and reattach the fittings immediately. Tighten the fittings to 18 foot pounds. Remount to the clip and lower the vehicle. Reconnect the negative battery cable and start the ignition. To fill the filter and get gas to the ignition system, turn the ignition on for two seconds and then off for ten seconds. The vehicle should start after this.
4.Replace the fuel filter at the first opportunity. Filters are not serviceable items, they are disposable. Never rely on a clogged fuel filter for any length of time

Chevrolet blazer starting problems


Check for spark. Likely causes are fuel pump, fuel filter, bad cap rotor, fouled plugs. I would start with new fuel filter and cap rotor. Totaly cost about 25 bucks. The fuel filter is on the driver's side frame rail. About middle of vehicle. Usalluy rusted and I think the wrenches are 7/8 and 13/16. This take patience cause it is in a tight area and you only get to turn the filter 1/8 turn the turn the wrench and turn again. Repeat

How does one replace the fuel filter on a 1998 Buick century? What degree of difficulty is it for a non mechanic ( but has some experience w/ basic car maintenance)?


The fuel filter is under car by gas tank. Use ramps or jack up car and support it good.
Loosen gas cap to relieve any pressure in system.
Twist the connector 1/4 turn in either direction to loosen any debris. Squeeze the plastic tabs on the end of the connector and pull the connector apart. Repeat for the other connector.(some models might have a screw in connector on one side) you will need a couple of wrenches.
Remove filter mounting bolt, unhook the tab from the receptacle in the frame and remove filter. Installation is just reverse.
snap the connector back on and pull to make sure it connected. You will need a drip pan to catch the fuel when you dsconnect the lines and what's in the filter.

How do you change fuel injectors


Hello,

For a 2003 it is on the frame rail under the drivers side door. Don't bother taking off the black holster that holds the fuel filter/injector onto the frame rail.
1 )Simply unscrew the nuts on both sides of the fuel filter/injector. It will be under pressure. Wear safety goggles. A couple of cups of fuel will spill.
2) Look at the fuel line on the engine side. Notice the clip holding in the line. Remove the line from the clip.
3) Remove the fuel lines from the filter starting with the side toward the engine. This side has more play/laxity in the line.
4) Slide out the fuel filter/injector from the black holster.
5) Slide in the new fuel filter/injector with the flow directional arrow pointing toward the engine.
6) Attach the fuel line to the filter starting with the tank side first. Don't force it and thread out the fittings.
7) Attach the engine side fuel line. The fitting would come together by hand screwing the male into the female end. I did have to use a wrench to gently start it.

Take care.

Oil filter


It is located outside of the the fuel tank. Start on the drivers side and look under the back part near the rear wheel. You should have a bracket along with a canister like item. That's the fuel filter. I believe 2 14mm wrenches or 1 14mm wrench and an adjustable wrench working with opposite motion should do the trick. Do so to unscrew the filter from both fuel lines. Be careful not to strip it. Make sure you have a drip pan. It will leak a little bit.

I REPLACED THE FUEL FILTER ON MY 1996 GMC JIMMY THE OTHER DAY. THE FILTER IS LOCATED UNDERNEATH THE DRIVERS SIDE INSIDE PART OF THE CHASIE.1ST DISCONNECT THE POSITIVE SIDE OF BATTERY, TO PREVENT ANY ACCIDENTS. THEN YOU JACK UP FRONT LEFT SIDE AND SECURE WITH JACK STAND.WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES BEFORE GOING UNDER NEATH THE VEHICLE. YOU WILL NEED THE FOLLOWING TOOLS; 20m,16m, and 13m OPEN END WRENCHES.TO BEGIN HAVE SOMETHING TO CATCH A LITTLE OF FUEL THAT WILL DRAIN WHEN YOU LOOSEN THE FUEL LINES.WHEN YOU LOCATED THE FUEL FILTER, TAKE THE 20m OPEN END WRENCH AND PLACE ON THE NUT FROM THE FILTER,THEN YOU TAKE THE 16m OPEN END WRENCH AND PLACE IT ON THE NUT FROM THE FUEL LINE THAT CONNECTS TO THE FILTER. BY HOLDING THE 20m WRENCH FIRM YOU REMOVE THE FUEL LINE NUT ON BOTH SIDES OF THE FILTER AS YOU LOOSEN THE NUTS FUEL WILL START DRIPPING FROM BOTH SIDES GIVE IT A MINUTE OR TWO .THE MOST THAT COMES OUT OF THE LINE WILL BE LESS THAN A CUP.NOW THAT YOU HAVE LOOSEN BOTH SIDES OF THE FILTER THERE IS A STRAP THAT SECURES THE FILTER JUST ABOVE THE FILTER,THERE IS A NUT THAT HOLDS THE STRAP YOU NEED TO GET A 13m SOCKET WITH A EXTENSION TO RATCHET AND REMOVE IT.LAST STEP FOLLOW THE FUEL LINE THAT GOES FROM THE FUEL FILTER TOWARDS THE ENGINE. THE FIRST CLAMP THAT YOU SEE HOLDING DOWN THE FUEL LINE TAKE THE 13m SOCKET AND REMOVE THE BOLT THAT HOLDS THE CLAMP NOW YOU CAN SLIDE THE FUEL LINE FROM THE FILTER.REMOVE THE FILTER AND BE CAREFUL THERE IS FUEL IN THE FILTER. TO REPLACE WITH NEW FILTER. REMEMBER TO LOOK AT THE ARROWS FLOW GO TOWARDS THE ENGINE

Finding were a filter is


On these vehicles, the fuel filter is located on the fuel line to the carburetor. Special care should be taken when removing and installing the fuel filter, not to bend or distort the fuel line in any way.
  1. Remove gas cap to relieve any pressure that may be present in the fuel system.
  2. Remove the air cleaner bonnet assembly.
  3. Using a backup wrench on the return line fitting on the top of the fuel filter, remove the fuel line with a flare nut wrench.
  4. Using a backup wrench on the fuel filter inlet fitting, remove the fuel line from the fuel filter with a flare nut wrench.
  5. Using a backup wrench on the fuel filter outlet fitting, loosen the fuel line and remove the fuel filter from the engine with a flare nut wrench.
To Install:
  1. Apply a drop of engine oil to all the fuel line nuts and flared ends.
  2. Position the fuel filter with flow arrow on the filter directed towards the fuel line going to the carburetor.
  3. Finger-tighten the fittings at the fuel filter outlet, inlet and return line into the top of the filter.
  4. Using a backup wrench on the fuel filter fittings, tighten the fuel lines in the following sequence:
    1. Tighten the outlet and inlet line nuts to 15-18 ft. lbs. (20.0-24.0 Nm)
    2. Tighten the nut on the return line at the top of the filter to 6-9 ft. lbs. (15-18 Nm).
  5. Inspect the fuel lines and carefully adjust if they are interfering with the carburetor, air pump, or fuel filter housing.
  6. Start the engine and check for fuel leaks at all the connections. Retighten if necessary.
  7. If removed, install the air filter bonnet assembly.
