The built up pressure is about 6 p.s.i., you can relief the pressure by first unscrewing your gas cap and that familiar "hiss" sound is the pressure escaping from the tank. The fuel filter is in the engine compartment on the passenger side mounted on the firewall. You should see 2 hoses. I needed a 10mm & 17mm socket & wrench. You should see a small scew (10mm) on top of the hoses. There's residual pressure in the filter so you'll need a rag to mop up any gas that spills over. Take off the hoses (17mm) but be careful not to loose any of the brass washers on the top & bottom of the hose. Take off the mount if it helps you repositon & replace the filter. Screw everything back and that's it!

You can pull fuel injector fuses and remove the gas cap but try to start it a few times so it relieves the pressure that was there...if it does not work on some honda i put a rag underneath the fuel rail and open the large bango nut that connects the line to the fuel rail just crack it 3/4 turn till it leaks a little and let it squirt out the pressure just wear eye protection its pretty easy fuel filter to do..

Have a 1989 honda prelude si cant find fuel filter


Carbureted engines: Two filters; a small one is in the fuel line under the hood; a larger one is located at the rear, just inboard of the left rear wheel.
Fuel-injected engines: the filter is located in the engine compartment, against the firewall, just to the left (as you face the engine) of the throttle housing, and slightly lower (follow the fuel line from your fuel rail, where your injectors are, back to it). It has two fuel lines (in and out) going to it, and it is held in place by a clamp which bolts it to the firewall.
Hope this helps you find it.

Car wont start


If it has been sitting for 3 years it could be a number of things. First thing to try is a good tune up (plugs, wires, oil change, air filter, and fuel filter). If the plugs have fouled out they are not getting enough spark to burn the fuel. Also if the fuel itself has turned, you should try to drain the tank, this is not feasible at times and can be substituted by adding as much fresh gas as possible and a can of Octane boost/ Gas drier. SeaFoam is what I would recommend (found at your local autoparts store. If you have over half a tank of gas that has been sitting that long, you will need to find a way to drain what is in it. There are a few tricks to doing this without dropping the gas tank or sucking it out with a garden hose. Try the tune up first though.
