Locate fuel filter

My father called me this evening form missouri( I am in ohio ) wanting to know where the fuel filter is located on his pick-up, a 1997 dodge 1500. I have no idea. I assume that it is on the frame like most later model trucks but i do not know for sure. he said that the truck runs rough at highway speeds and then dies, acting like it is starved for fuel. his first thought was water or debris in the filter. my thought was possible dirty injectors. any help would be greatly apprieciated. Thanks, Brian.

The fuel filter is part of the fuel pump which is located in the gas tank. Unfortunately, Dodgemade this booboo of builing the filter into the pump. Depending on when the pump was changed, if ever, it's a very good possiblility it does need to be replaced now. I replaced mine just a month ago, and now again having similiar problems. I am about to try relacing the Automatic Shutdown Relay to see if that might be shorting out and shutting down the pump. There is also the possibility that the wiring harness is worn out and shorting out if the truck is stalling.

How to bleed the fuel system

1. Open the hood of the vehicle and locate the fuel pump; it is usually found between the fuel tank and the first fuel filter. Locate the manual primer on the pump. The manual primer can take the form of a lever or a plunger. 2Open the bleed plug on the fuel filter closest to the fuel tank. See the vehicle's owner's manual for the exact location of the bleed plug.3Open the fuel supply valve to allow fuel to flow from the pump to the filter. ----------------------------------------------------------------------

Describe the location of the replaceable fuel filter on a 2005 chrysler 300 with a v 8

Hello richardcr341: My name is Roger and I will answer your request. As you have noticed there is no filter that you can see. The reason is the filter is located inside of the fuel cell or tank. What you call a filter is now called a strainer. The strainer is sold as part of the fuel pump unit. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. This way I know it was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Where is the fuel pump and fuel filte located????

Sounds like a good possibility that this is your problem. I am not real familiar with this particular vehicle, but most modern EFI vehicles have the fuel pumps inside the tank and the fuel filter will be somewhere inside the frame, underneath between the tank and engine. One thing to try is to take off the fuel cap and with ignition off have someone listen while turning the key to the on position, but not starting for a whirring noise which only lasts a couple of seconds until the system is pressurized.Then even harder to hear, start the engine and listen for a constant whirring. If neither of these tests produce the desired effect then your fuel pump is probably bad and the tank has to come out. You can have a pressure test done to confirm.

I am assuming you would want to know the placement of the fuel filter. It actually depends if your Elentra is a Sedan or Wagon.
To my knowledge a 99 Hyundai Elentra has an inline fuel filter. It is located in the engine bay right against the firewall. It could either be on the driver side or the passenger side. It looks like a small canister with tubing connectors at the top and bottom. It is normally held by a clamp.. It maybe necessary to remove the air filter box to have easy access on removal of the fuel filter. It is a sound practice to relieve the fuel pressure prior to fuel filter removal.

If on the other hand, you are seeking locations where you can purchase a fuel filter for your 1999 Elentra, pls try here, here, here or even eBay for a start.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
