Need a special tool to release the hose fittings from the fuel filter. Without the tool it is not going to come off. You can borrow a fuel line disconnect set from checker auto. The have a nice Powerbuilt brand kit made of billet aluminium. The crappy cast-iron ones that look like scissors or the plastic ones don't work very well. The tool slides inside the fitting and releases it so you can slide it off easily. My 2000 explorer uses the 5/16" tool from the set to remove the line from the fuel filter. Note that some vehicles have a fitting that requires another type of tool that goes around the outside of the fitting and compresses some spring clips so the fitting slides off the filter.

How do you replace fuel line to nissan quest


get the new line.
bleed the old one because fuel is under pressure.
I would start under the hood, remove fitting, pull apart hoses.
run the new hose next to the old one.
connect under hood first then remove connection at gas tank.
attach hose at fuel tank. If there is an inline filter replace now will
save time since you are already under car.
Next pull old hose out and throw away.
Last push hose onto mounts from old hose. If they break use cable ties so hose stays in place.
enjoy your car.

My 1993 nissan terrano,4x4 turbo diesel,isnt bringing fuel up to the injectors after i replaced the diesel filter.does anybody have a solution for this please


Did you follow these procedures?


  1. Release the fuel pressure from the fuel line as follows:
    1. Remove the fuel pump fuse at the fuse box.
    2. Start the engine.
    3. After the engine stalls, crank the engine two or three times to make sure that the fuel pressure is released.
    4. Turn the ignition switch OFF and reinstall the fuel pump fuse.
  2. Loosen the hose clamps at the fuel inlet and outlet lines. Wrap a shop towel or absorbent rag around the filter, then slide each line off the filter nipples.
  3. Remove the fuel filter and old hose clamps.

To install:

  1. Place new hose clamps on the fuel inlet and outlet lines.
  2. Connect the fuel filter, being careful to observe the correct direction of flow, then tighten the hose clamps.
  3. Start the engine and check for fuel leaks.

Always use a high pressure-type fuel filter assembly. Do not use a synthetic resinous fuel filter

WHERE IS THE FUEL FILTER ON A 88 NISSAN PATHFINDER


Fuel Filter REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CAUTION
NEVER SMOKE WHEN WORKING AROUND OR NEAR GASOLINE! MAKE SURE THAT THERE IS NO ACTIVE IGNITION SOURCE NEAR YOUR WORK AREA! 1970-83 Carbureted Engines The fuel filter is located on the right inner fender in the engine compartment. It is a disposable cartridge type.
  1. Using a pair of pliers, expand the hose clamp on one side of the filter, and slide the clamp further down the hose, past the point to which the filter pipe extends. Remove the other clamp in the same manner.
  2. Grasp the hoses near the ends and twist them gently to pull them free from the filter pipes.
  3. Pull the filter from the clip and discard.
  4. Install the new filter into the clip. Push the hoses onto the filter pipes, and slide the clamps back into position. Start the engine and check for leaks. Fig. 1: Fuel filter - 1970-79 85851035.gif
    Fig. 2: Fuel filter - 1980-83 85851036.gif
1984-86 Carbureted Engines The fuel filter is located on the inside of the frame above the left rear spring front shackle. Changing the filter is VERY awkward. Since it is in-line and below tank level, fuel will pour from the fuel lines when they are disconnected from the filter. The only way of preventing this, is to siphon all of the gasoline from the tank before replacing the filter. Another possible method is to clamp and plug the fuel line, but this is not recommended because of the danger of leaking fuel or damage which could occur to the fuel line when clamped. It would, therefore, be a good idea to run the tank almost dry before changing the filter. Once the tank is dry, disconnect the fuel lines at the filter, unbolt the old filter and install a new one. Reconnect the fuel lines, fill the tank, start the engine and check for leaks. Fig. 3: Fuel filter - 1984-86 85851037.gif

Fuel Injected Engines WARNING
Never attempt to remove the fuel filter without first relieving the fuel system pressure!
  1. Release the fuel pressure from the fuel line as follows:
    1. Remove the fuel pump fuse at the fuse box.
    2. Start the engine.
    3. After the engine stalls, crank the engine two or three times to make sure that the fuel pressure is released.
    4. Turn the ignition switch OFF and reinstall the fuel pump fuse.
  2. Loosen the hose clamps at the fuel inlet and outlet lines then slide each line off the filter nipples.
  3. Remove the fuel filter.
  4. Replace the fuel filter. Always be sure to use new hose clamps. Fig. 7: Fuel filter - 1986-88 VG30i 85851038.gif

How do i change the fuel filter on 1995 plymouth voyager?


The line is under pressure so be careful when removing the fliter. You should be able to find the fuel pressure test port on the fuel rail under the hood. If you press in the schrader valve it will relieve the fuel pressure in the line and make it less likely to end up in your face when you finally remove the filter.

The filter is located under the vehicle on the passenger side about in the middle.

There will be two short sections of hose on each side of the old filter. Replace those sections of hose. Higher end filters usually come with the hose pieces. Use new fuel hose clamps. They are different than the regular hose clamps and do a much better job of keeping the hoses secure.

Fuel Filter REMOVAL & INSTALLATION The in-line fuel filter is located in the engine compartment between the fuel tank and the fuel rail.
  1. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Position a suitable container below the fuel filter to collect any excess fuel that may leak from the filter and lines. CAUTION
    Observe all applicable safety precautions when working around fuel. Whenever servicing the fuel system, always work in a well ventilated area. Do not allow fuel spray or vapors to come in contact with a spark or open flame. Keep a dry chemical fire extinguisher near the work area. Always keep fuel in a container specifically designed for fuel storage; also, always properly seal fuel containers to avoid the possibility of fire or explosion.
  4. Remove the retaining clip from the fuel filter upper hose.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 1994 dodge ram


Fuel Filter REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CAUTION
Never smoke when working around gasoline! Avoid all sources of sparks or ignition. Gasoline vapors are EXTREMELY volatile! All 1989–93 Gasoline Engines and 1994–96 2.5L Engines The fuel filter is located in the fuel line on the inside of the left frame rail, just ahead of the crossmember. Fig. 1: Fuel filter location for gasoline engines 88471011.gif
  1. Relieve the fuel system pressure as described in Section 5.
  2. Unfasten the filter retaining screw and remove the filter from the frame rail.
  3. Wrap a shop towel around the hose connections to catch fuel spillage. Loosen the fuel hose clamps and disconnect the hoses from the filter.
  4. Remove the old fuel filter and replace it with a new one.
  5. Connect the fuel hoses and tighten the hose clamps. Position the filter on the frame rail and tighten the retaining screw to 75 inch lbs. (8 Nm).
1994–96 Gasoline Engines — Except 2.5L The fuel filter is integrated into the fuel pressure regulator which is mounted in the fuel tank. This unit is not controlled by the PCM or engine vacuum. It is calibrated to deliver approximately 35–45 psi (241–310 kPa) of fuel pressure to the injectors. If the pressure exceeds the maximum of the specified range, an internal diaphragm closes to route fuel back into the fuel tank. This system eliminates the need for conventional return lines from the engine bay and accounts for the name of the "Returnless'' fuel injection system employed in these vehicles. NOTE: Fuel tank removal is required for this procedure. Also needed will be external snapring pliers and proper hose clamp pliers, such as No. C-4124 pliers (available through Plymouth/Dodge dealers), or equivalent.
  1. Relieve the fuel system pressure as described in Section 5. Fig. 2: With the fuel tank removed, twist and pull the fuel filter/regulator for removal from the rubber mounting grommet 88471707.gif

  2. Drain the fuel tank and remove the tank.
  3. Remove the fuel filter/regulator (which is pressed into a rubber grommet) by twisting and pulling it straight up. Fig. 3: Use snapring pliers to remove the retainer securing the cover tube to the base of the filter/regulator 88471708.gif

  4. Remove the snapring retaining the cover tube, then slide it down to reveal the clear plastic fuel tube and its retaining clamp. Fig. 4: Cut off the old tube clamp without damaging the plastic fuel tube 88471709.gif

  5. Gently cut off the old clamp without damaging the tube, then discard the clamp.
  6. Carefully pull the tube off, then remove the filter/regulator from the fuel pump module. To install:
  7. Install a new clamp over the plastic fuel tube and attach it loosely to the filter/regulator. Rotate the unit in the line until it is pointed to the driver's side of the vehicle.
  8. Tighten the clamp using hose clamp pliers such as No. C-4124 (available through the Plymouth/Dodge dealer). NOTE: Do not use conventional side cutters to tighten the clamp.
  9. Slide the cover tube up to the bottom of the filter/regulator and install the snapring.
  10. Carefully press the assembly back into the rubber grommet by hand. It should be pointed to the driver's side of the vehicle.
  11. Install the fuel tank.

Where is the fuel filter on a 2001 mercury cougar and what tools are needed to replace it?


You will need a straight-head screw driver and possibly a 1/4 inch nut driver.

The hoses are held by white plastic retaining clips that you pop off with the screw driver. My new filter came with new retaining clips in case the old ones break during removal. The filter itself is held in place with an adjustable strap like one you would use for any hose. You can use a screwdriver, but I prefer to use the nutdriver to avoid mangling the screw.

You can change this filter without having to actually put your body underneath the vehicle. Jack it up at the rear jackpoint just fore of the rear right wheel. The filter is slighty forward from there. You can lay on the ground next to the vehicle and just reach under to change the filter. It is about the size of a regular coffee mug. It is cylindrical in shape with one end rounded with hose nipple and the other end flat with hose nipple.

Before removing the fuel filter I tried pulling the fuel pump fuse (15A fuse #9 in the power distribution fuse box in the engine compartment next to the battery) to bleed the pressure off the line. The engine however never died, but acted as if it would, so I shut it off. I did not know where to actually disconnect the pump. Pulling the fuse seemed to help anyway. The hoses were not under pressure, though still about a half-cup or so of fuel still leaked out, plus the fuel in the filter itself. That's normal.

1. Start engine, pull fuse, wait for engine to choke, turn off.
2. Jack up car, use Jack-stand for safety.
3. Pop clips, pull off hoses.
4. Loosen strap, remove old filter.
5. Reverse for installation.
