No, the filter is sealed inside of a metal housing. Just replace it with a new one.

Fuel Fault Rover 45 Classic

Okay, this is different. For one thing, the fuel cap will not show pressure. It is a negative Vacuum system incorporated with the Evaporator Emissions system. You check fuel pressure at the test port on the fuel rail.

What can happen is the plastic fuel strainer in the tank can dissolve into bits. These floating bits can redistribute and clog the fuel pick-up.

Second, at a point in time, gas station filters were a collection of tiny plastic beads. When the sack containing them ruptures, the beads are pumped into customers fuel tanks.

Anyway, it sounds like you have an intermittent fuel blockage. You might try changing the inline fuel filter and pump some fuel for a sample.

Why doesnt my 1996 range rover not speed up when i acelerate da gas after i recently replaced the updated fuel pump?

This is just a WAG, but I would say you didn't replace the fuel filter after you replaced the fuel pump. Sometimes a stronger fuel pump also pump more of the accumulated gunk from your tank into the fuel system, so the filter clogs up faster.

I have a 2004 landrover discovery, where is the fuel filter located?

As a Land Rover Tech I can tell you that it is true that there is no filter on the series2 there is a small screen at the bottom of the pump pickup that acts as a filter,If you feel this is clogged you can remove the pump by pulling up the rear cargo area carpet as recommended above then just use break clean to clean the screen.Make sure you replace the pump gasket as a faulty gasket will cause a check engine light and a little trick I use is to put a small amount of vaseline on the gasket to ease installation.Also a quick note on series 1 filters is that the lines usually cease up causing the connections to break or damage when removing.I highly recommend getting the repair kit available at the dealer or rovers north before attempting to replace the filter . BUT IN REGULAR 2004 lan-drover discovery there is fuel filter located. Removing the fuel filter The fuel filter is located on bulk head, to left hand side of the engine.
1: Start by cleaning the area around the filter head.2: Place a container beneath the fuel filter to catch any spillage.3: Loosen the bleed screw using a 10mm spanner4: Unscrew the drain tap on the bottom of the filter until the fuel starts coming out into your the container.5: Once all the fuel is drained from the filter, unscrew the whole filter assembly.

Fitting the new fuel filter 6: Clean the seal & seating on the new filter.7: Put a small amount of fuel around the rubber seal to lubricate it.8: Screw the new filter onto the filter head and tighten by hand.10: Tighten the bleed screw.11: You can now crank the engine until fuel is drawn through the system and the engine starts.Job done!

This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

My freelander 2002 stalls after about 45 min runing normal

Try cleaning the fuel pump filter. Under the seat behind the driver lift the carpet and you will find a round cover with six screws remove the cover. The fuel pump is directly below unscrew the retaining round plate and remove the pump. At the base of the pump is a small filter if it is covered in black muck that's your problem. clean and replace. job takes about 10 mins good luck. please let me know how you got on!
