Hi, here is a step by step guide that will help you with the replacement of your fuel filter.

Step1 Put on your protective glasses and gather your tools. An assortment of wrenches and screwdrivers are necessary. The ones you use will depend upon the vehicle. Step2 Elevate the vehicle. This can be done by using a jack and jack stands, or drive-up ramps. Do not rely solely on a single jack, as this is very dangerous. Step3 Find the fuel filter. The location varies from vehicle to vehicle. It’s a safe bet to start your search near the fuel tank under the body. You can also reference your owner’s manual or call your local dealership. Step4 Remove the protective covering that guards the fuel filter. Most filters have some kind of plastic covering over them to prevent damage, and can be removed by a common wrench, hex wrench, or screwdriver. Step5 Remove the fuel lines attached to the fuel filter. There are a number of ways these hoses might be linked to the pump, such as links, brackets or clips. Use either a screwdriver or wrench, whichever the attachments require. Step6 Cap the fuel lines with a pencil or golf tee, and keep them tilted toward the drainage canister. Step7 Remove the fuel filter from the assembly, noting which way it was oriented. An arrow will likely be on the filter. It should be pointed toward the engine, and away from the fuel tank. Step8 Install you new fuel filter. Be sure that it is oriented so the fuel arrow points toward the engine. Step9 Reattach the hoses and guard.


-WARNING-




  • Do not over-tighten the fuel filter. Tighten to hand-strength, and let it be. Over-tightening can cause damage and fuel leakage.
  • Change your fuel filter approximately every 10 or 15 thousand miles, but more frequently if you often drive gravel or dirt roads. Vehicles older than 10 years might have rusty fuel tanks, which also contributes to clogging.
  • A new fuel filter is cheaper than a busted fuel pump, which is one of the more serious consequences of a severely clogged fuel filter.
  • Sometimes special tools are required to remove the Ford fuel lines and filters. Ford provides these tools with your vehicle or upon request.
  • Make sure that the engine is cool. Any heat could spark a fire.
  • Be sure that the car is secure before venturing underneath. Use a jack and jack stands, or drive-up ramps. Give the car a few nudges to Be sure it will not collapse.
  • Never smoke or light matches when changing a fuel filter.
Please rate and god bless:)

How to change a fuel fliter on a 1995 a uroua


A bad fuel pump in your Aurora can keep your engine from receiving fuel or cranking. Replacing a fuel pump is not an easy task and will probably require an hour or two or your time. The Aurora fuel pump is part of the fuel-sending unit assembly, so the entire assembly must be replaced.
Lift the vehicle, lower the fuel tank and remove the sending unit.

I just brought used 1995 oldsmobile aurora and it's about 125,000.00 miles on there and I went and put regular gas in there not knowing that it run by premium gas and now it rus and starts but as soon as...


Regular is not causing your problem, while it is recommended that you use premium fuel, it will adjust timing for regular-your issue is something else. If it stalls at a light, is there any check engine light? Things that might cause this are Idle Air Control valve, the Throttle Position Sensor-it might also just need a good old-fashioned tune-up, plugs, plugs wires, air filter, oil change. fuel filter-since you just bought it, you have no real way of knowing what is good and what isn't, so you should either find a honest mechanic or do the work yourself. I have a 2001 Aurora, they are great cars and have great engines, but they can be a challange to work on, so first determine if the basic stuff is good-air filter, clean the throttle body, if the plugs and plug wires are old, change them. that's a good start, from there if you need an IAC or TPS, local junk yards are full of them (they use Caddy components too) so you can save a lot that way.

Car won't start. Cranks fine, but no fire.


And do you have spark at the plug wires when it won't start? You need to check to see if you have spark at the plug wires. You can buy a simple tester for under $10.00 at the parts store and it will show you if you are getting spark.

Outside temp sensor does not work on 1995 olds aurora


You can buy a replacement ambient air temp sensor at an auto parts store for about $10. Its as simple to change as a light bulb and can be found behind your front bumper at the base of the radiator.
