Where is the fuel filter in a 1992 Cadillac Deville CP?


Generally, GM products from this era have an external canister type fuel filter near the gas tank underneath the car by the rear axle.

The following illustrates the proper procedure for changing:

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CAUTION
Never smoke when working around gasoline! Avoid all sources of sparks or ignition. Gasoline vapors are EXTREMELY volatile! WARNING
Fuel supply lines on all vehicles equipped with fuel injected engines will remain pressurized for long periods after engine shutdown. The pressure must be relieved before servicing these fuel systems.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Depressurize the fuel system.
  3. Remove the filter bracket retainer.
  4. For plastic type fittings:
    1. Grasp the filter and one fuel line fitting. Twist the quick connect fitting 1⁄4 turn in each direction to loosen any dirt within the fitting. Repeat for the other fuel line fitting.
    2. Squeeze the plastic retainer release tabs and pull the connection apart. Repeat for the other fitting.
  5. For metal type fittings:
    1. Use a fuel pipe quick-connect separator J37088 or equivalent. This is available from your local parts store.
    2. Insert the tool into the female side of the connector, then push inward to release locking tabs. Pull the connection apart. Fig. 1: There are a couple of fasteners that need to be removed to access the filter. This is one of them 91041p71.jpg
      Fig. 2: Some models utilize a plastic fitting on the fuel filter 91041p74.jpg
      Fig. 3: Twist the fuel line back and forth while holding the filter still. This will loosen any dirt caught in the connection 91041p75.jpg
      Fig. 4: Squeeze the tabs on the plastic line to free them from the lock 91041p76.jpg
      Fig. 5: Slide the hose off the front end of the filter first. It's easier to work with 91041p77.jpg
      Fig. 6: Remove the other fitting in the same manner 91041p78.jpg
      Fig. 7: After removing the fuel line from the other side, you can now slide it out of the sleeve and remove it from the vehicle 91041p73.jpg
      Fig. 8: The filter is typically attached to this bracket 91041p72.jpg
      Fig. 9: Remove the filter from this bracket before installing the new filter 91041p69.jpg
      To install:
  6. Remove the protective caps from the new filter and apply a few drops of clean engine oil to both tube ends of the filter and O-rings. Install the fuel filter so that the flow arrow follows the direction of fuel flow.
  7. Install the new plastic connector retainers onto the filter inlet and outlet tubes (plastic collar type fittings).
  8. Push the connectors together to cause the retaining tabs to snap into place. Once installed pull on both ends of each connection to make sure they are secure.
  9. Before installing the fitting on the filter, wipe the filter end with a clean cloth. Inspect the inside of the fitting to make sure it is free of dirt and/or obstructions
  10. Align the fitting, and filter axially and push the fitting onto the filter end. Pull on the fitting to make sure it is fully engaged.
  11. Install the fuel filter and bracket on the frame.
  12. Connect the negative battery cable.
  13. Start the engine and check for leaks.

Where is the gas filter on 1993 olds cutlass


You've probably solved this by now. It's the cylinder shaped container just under the rear drivers side door. You may loosen 2 nuts (be sure to use a back up wrench on the filter bolts), or you may notice plastic tabs at each end of filter connecting to fuel line. Squeeze the upper plastic tabs (needle nose pliers), and slip off the fuel line. Install is the reverse. Good luck.
