    You may not want to attempt this, by the time you get done, you'll need a case of beer. The filter is in the gas tank, attached to the fuel pump assembly, These filters are made to last for years.I'll give a rough idea:

    Take out the back seat, and on the floor there is a service panel, unbolt that, disconnect wire connectors, fuel lines,once it's out, there's o rings to take off, clips to take off, disconnect filter from pump assembly, and a bunch of other things,got to be careful not to bend the float level, and most of all, make sure no dirt gets in or on any parts.

My engin light is on and feels like i am not getting enof power! i amn not sure what is wrong could it be a fule filter? for 2000 toyota echo

a fuel filter can be a cause of power drainage, but it can also be many other things, start by replacing the fuel filter, and if its not that then work your way to your spark plugs and plug wires so on so on.. making sure you change your oil, oil filter, air filter, fuel filter, ignition rotor, plugs, and plug wires is a great idea to tune up and restore some power back

Location of the PVC and gas filter on 4 cylinder 2003 Solara

The PCV and the fuel filter replacements are not going to increase you fuel mileage. What you should really consider is getting some good fuel injection cleaner into the tank, and get an "induction system cleaning". Those two items alone will address most of your mileage issues. The PCV does nothing for mileage, nor does the fuel filter. Also, for maximum fuel mileage, you should have the correct sparkplugs from Toyota in your car. "Aftermarket" plugs doe not perform very well at all.

Replace and location of fuel filter on an early 97 4 cyl camry

The fuel filter on a 97 Camry is located on the firewall, on the driver side of the engine compartment, right above the transmission. This is not easy to change. Suggest that the engine to be cold when attempting this to avoid getting burns from the hot engine. Note also that when the filter is removed, fuel may still be under pressure, and it my spray for a bit. Now, here is the bad news: Toyota fuel filters are notoriously overtightend when assembled at the factory. This being said, when you remove the filter, the threads from the line running from the bottom of the filter (to the fuel tank) my strip out when you remove that line, and you could very well need to replace that line, along with the filter. If the engine is running poorly, investigate & exhaust all possibilities to correct the running condition before condemning the fuel filter. Finally, always use new copper gaskets when replacing the filter (it should come with 2 new gaskets).
Hope this helps you.
