How to change 2003 kia optima sedan fuel filter


The fuel filter location varies with engine size on the Kia Optima. The 1.5-, 1.6- and 2.4-liter engines have the fuel filter located under the car in the front left corner of the fuel tank. The 1.8-liter engine has the fuel filter located on the driver's side firewall. All the filters have the same replacement procedure. There are actually two filters on the Kia Optima. A filter called a strainer is attached to the intake side of the fuel pump inside the fuel tank.

To change the filter follow this procedure:-

•Lift the hood and remove the cap on the fuse and relay box located on the driver's side fenderwell. Look at the bottom of the cap for the location of the fuel pump relay within the box. Pull the fuel pump relay out and lay it sideways in the box.

•2
Start the engine. It is not likely to start and even if it does it will only run for a second since the fuel pump relay has been removed, which disabled the fuel pump. This procedure will drop the fuel pressure in the fuel line. Raise the rear of the vehicle with the floor jack and support it by the frame with the jack stands. This is for engines 1.5, 1.6 and 2.4.

•3
Remove the fuel lines on both ends of the fuel filter. Use the scribe--a long pointy needle--to lift the white retainer straight up located in the center of the connector. This releases the fuel line from the fuel pump. Do the same to the other side of the fuel pump.

•4
Remove the bolt in the center of the fuel pump retainer bracket using a 10 mm socket. Pull the fuel pump out of the bracket.

•5
Insert the new fuel pump into the retainer bracket. Make sure that the inlet side faces the fuel line to the fuel tank and the outlet toward the fuel line to the engine. Install the fuel pump and bracket and tighten the bolt.

•6
Place a white retainer clip that came with the filter into the holes in each of the connectors. Just push it in enough to snap the bottom ends of the clip in place. The clip should now be standing straight up with just the bottom tips in the connectors. Push each of the fuel lines into the filter one at a time. Holding the fuel line tightly into the filter, push the white retainer clip down to lock the fuel filter and fuel line together. Lower the car and replace the fuel pump relay. Start the car and check for leaks.

Fuel leak


check under the hood for any leaks from the fuel line, which comes up in front of the firewall and then turns back toward the engine. from the rear.
This could be a vacuum line leaking to the exhaust canister, it could be a leak near the fuel tank or filler coming from a vapor recovery line that goes to the engine compartment. Check the trunk to see if it has that smell. If so, check for a vacuum line under the car and see if it is unhooked and/or cracked. (does the smell get worse after you've filled the tank?) If so, this may be the culprit.
Replace these lines as necessary.

Good luck.

Location of fuel filter


It should be behind the engine, mounted on the firewall a foot down from the top just left (i facing the car) of center. It is very awkward to reach. you will need to disconect the battery (safety first, re-pressurize the systems (using a fuel system gauge), pull out the retaining clip and disconnect top fuel line and let ti drain in to a container, raise the car, disconnect the bottom fuel line like the tip one(drain it also into something, unscrew the bracket that holds it in, replace it with a new one, connect the bottom line, lift the car and reconnect the top line, connect the battery, start and check for leaks.

Head Gasket?? Valve cover Gasket???


most likely it is the valve cover gasket. it covers the valve train where there is alot of oil to lube the top of the motor. if the head gasket was leaking it may have more signs of running poorly. also having coolant leaks also. so i will have to say valve cover gasket. now usally you may have a oil burning smell with it depending on the area of the lek but not always.

the valve cover can easily be seen when the hood is open. it is right on the top and where it meets the clyinder head is where the gasket is and the leak can be seen.

if you have more question please ask.

Basic service


Here are detailed instructions on the location, removal, and re-installation of your fuel filter. Hope it helps and have a great day!

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Carbureted Engines
These vehicles use two replaceable fuel 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.
Whenever the filter(s) are replaced, take great care to avoid the entry of dirt into the lines. Also, pay attention to the correct installation position. It is possible to install the filter backwards.
FRONT
See Figure 2
  1. If applicable, disengage the filter or hose from its retaining clip.
  2. Using two fuel line clamps, pinch off both fuel lines. Take care not to crush the lines; just clamp them shut.
If the fuel hoses are hard or cracked, it is necessary to replace them.

  1. Loosen the fuel line clamps and slide them back.
  2. Using a twisting motion, remove the fuel lines from the filter.
  3. To install, use a new fuel filter and reverse the removal procedures. Start the engine and check for leaks. Correct any leaks immediately.
REAR
See Figures 3, 4, 5 and 6
  1. Raise and safely support the rear of the vehicle. Remove the left rear wheel.
  2. Remove the bolts securing the filter and its basket to the fuel tank.

  1. Use a new filter and reverse the removal procedures.
  2. Make certain the retaining tabs are engaged when the filter is installed in the holder. Tighten the bolts until snug.
  3. Install the left rear wheel. Lower the car to the ground.
  4. Start the engine and check for leaks. Correct any leaks immediately.
Fuel Injected Engines
See Figures 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12
The canister fuel filter is located in the engine compartment. When buying the new filter, also buy new washers for the banjo bolts and the service bolt. Failure to replace these washers invites high-pressure fuel leaks. Replacing the washers is required, not recommended.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery terminal.
  2. The fuel system is under pressure. Release pressure slowly and contain spillage. Observe "no smoking/no open flame" precautions. Have a Class B-C (dry powder) fire extinguisher within arm's reach at all times.
  3. Disconnect the banjo bolts and/or threaded fuel line fitting from the fuel filter. Use of a flare nut or line wrench is recommended for disconnecting and attaching this fitting.

  1. Loosen the fuel filter clamp bolt, then remove the filter.
To install:
  1. Install the new filter and secure the clamp bolt.
  2. The upper and lower washers on each banjo bolt and the washer on the service bolt MUST be replaced whenever the bolts are loosened. Install the washers and banjo bolts. Tighten the banjo bolts to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm) on all models except 1992-95 Preludes. On these models, tighten the bolt to 20 ft. lbs. (28 Nm). If applicable, tighten the threaded fuel line fitting to 27 ft. lbs. (37 Nm).

  1. Tighten the service bolt to 9 ft. lbs. (12 Nm).
  2. Start the engine and check for leaks. The engine may crank longer than normal until full fuel pressure is developed. Correct any leaks immediately.
