Hi on this car the fuel filter is in the fuel pump so the pump as a whole will be replaced. To get to it you will have to remove the rear seat bottom cushion. There are 2 12m bolts inbetween the top cushion and the bottom. remove them and then on the front of the bottom cushion there will be 2 plastic clips pull up on them and the cushion will pop up and you will see the acc panel for the pump.

SOURCE: can't find the fuel filter in a 2005 kia optima

klaudie: This car does not really get serviced very often unless there are contaminants in the tank. I checked the Kia factory maintenance schedule and there is NO reference to fuel filter replacement. It seems that many manufacturers are now just putting screens or socks in the tanks before the fuel pump and no longer use fuel filters. KIA just puts a fine screen before the fuel pump. The pump is in the fuel tank which warrants it's removal to access the pump.
A strong word of advise of this engine!!!!!
Do NOT let the timing belt go beyond 60,000 miles. I could find no reference in Kia's maintenance schedule for timing belt replacement. According to them it's a judgment call by the tech! THAT IS TOTAL INSANITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If the belt breaks in this engine you will trash the upper end of the motor and be spending big bucks! Nearly all automotive manufacturers had scheduled timing belt replacements at 60,000 miles and suddenly a lot of them just extended the time and distance, but the part numbers, manufacturers and designs didn't appear to have changed. I have had many cars in my shop where people did not heed my warning. Some get lucky and others have to hock their kids fo afford the cost of their negligence.

Where is the fuel filter?


Hello travis.... The fuel filter is actually in the fuel tank and is accessable. On the 2004 Kia Optima EX, 2.7L automatic there is an access cover behind the back seat in the trunk. Another individual I spoke with said his was located under his back seat. This all depends on engine, year, model.

There is a hatch in the trunk behind the rear seats - remove it and the top of the tank is exposed where the fuel lines go into the tank and down to the pump.

Fuel filters usually are under the car and run along the frame or unibody. Should be round cylinder shaped with lines going in one side and out the other.

look under the car drivers side. it should be mounted to the frame about mid way under the car. it will be a metal cylinder with 2 lines connected to it. one of the lines will be going to the front and the other will be going to the back of the car.
