Fuel filter location on a 1996 EL Futura wagon

Hi guys,
I am doing a major service on my 1996 Ford EL Futura wagon. One of the to do items is to change the fuel filter - but I cant damn well find it. Any ideas on where it is.

Thanks Rex

    Hi There, while the response is probably correct - I dont have a hoist to get up high enough to replace the fuel filter - what an annoying place Ford have used to put a fuel filter.



    The comments on the problem where great as I now know not to bother with the replacement.

    Cheers Rex

Look along the frame, hidden behind a shield, if all else fails, follow fuel line from tank along frame.

  • In the vast majority of cases, simply cleaning the MAF sensor does the trick. Consult your service manual for it's location if you need help. I find it's best to take it off and spray it with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner. Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling
  • Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary
  • Check for a dirty fuel filter and proper fuel pressure

Where does the air filter go for a 1996 ford taurus wagon also where is the fuel filter located


the air filter is in a box under the hood, the fuel filter is in the rear under the car, near the tank. If you dont know where they are located, you should not attempt to replace them, The air filter is easy enough, but the fuel filter requires special tools.

Fuel Filter blockage


hi jesse,
the first time i sent this the system overloaded and i had to try again
it is located under the car just behind the diff right up high with push fuel joiners(possibly thread on one end) when i had the same problem, it was infact the fuel pump, because the AU use a fuel pump that requires fuel as a lubricant, it is located in a small pot in the fuel tank that is filled from your return line. if you run low on fuel they tend to run dry and wear out. i tested my pump pressure by fitting a VL inline injection pump. as this worked i replaced the fuel pump(which in an AU is a very nasty job) and have had no problems

Removal of fuel filter


The filter is located under the truck on the driver side... You have to go to a auto parts store and buy a fuel filter key for that year!!

1993 ford escort wagon,no electric to injectors


The fuel delivery system uses an electric fuel pump to provide high-pressure fuel to the fuel injectors. The fuel pump is located at the rear of the vehicle, mounted in the fuel tank. It can be accessed by removing the rear seat.

The fuel tubes leading from the fuel tank to the engine are under pressure during vehicle operation. When the engine is turned OFF, the fuel in the fuel tubes remains pressurized for long periods of time to provide quick start-ups. Fuel not used by the fuel injectors during operation is routed back to the fuel tank through the fuel return tube.

The fuel handling components are protected by three fuel filters. A replaceable in-line fuel filter is located inside the engine compartment between the fuel tank and fuel injection supply manifold. A serviceable filter screen is located inside the fuel tank at the fuel pump inlet. A non-serviceable filter screen is incorporated into each fuel injector.


I can get you trouble shooting tips if you want them.
