NO smoking or ignition sources within 30 ft. The fuel line to the filter may be under pressure so remove the line slowly and catch all leaking fuel. Filters are directional so install following the direction of fuel low arrow.

Your fuel filter is located under the RH frame rail and it shouldn't be to hard to replace. You might wanna check your fuel pump pressure too.

SOURCE: check engine light stays on. Just

There are thousands of codes that can turn that light on. Auto Zone can pull the code from your computer for free. There is no way to tell why that light is on without that code.

How do you change fuel filter

this one got me for a while too. the fuel filter is on the passanger side just in front of the door. jack it up just enough to fit under it and lay on .your back. just along the edge you will see two small fuel lines. follow them toward the front of the car. just when they start to turn up.there it is. it best to borrow the tool from the auto parts store to release the clamps. make sure yourelese the pressure from the fuel line first. it is under the hood by the fuel injectors and looks like a tire air stem. just push it until pressure goes. it really a pretty easy job

Service 100 thousands miles

The 04 was pretty straight forward.

Change the oil and filter when the display tells you to. (Don't forget to reset Oil Life system!)
when the display tells you to change engine oil... Do the following as well:
~Lube Chassis Components
~Check Tires for Air and Damage
~Inspect Break System
~Check Engine Fluids and Washer System
~Check Power Steering System
~Check Wiper Blades
~Check Restraint System
~Lube Body Components (See manual)
~Replace Cabin Air Filter (Located in firewall on passenger side.)

Every 25K miles do the following:
~ Inspect Fuel System, Exhaust System, Accessory Drive Belts for damage or wear.
~ Replace Air Cleaner

Ever 50K Miles
~ If used for Towing - Replace Transfer Case Fluid :: If not change fluid ever 75Kk miles.

Every 100k Miles
~ Change Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter
~ Change Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter again at 150k if heavy service
~ Replace Spark Plugs

Every 150k miles
~ Change Engine Coolant (Or every 5 years which ever comes first!)
~ Replace Engine Accessory Drive Belt

optional y are supposed to change the transfer case fluid every 50k if towing

Have 1991 geo metro convertible, it misses a lot when driving it seems like a fuel pump or maybe spark plugs?

Could be many things, but need to check compression first. Buy a compression tester and follow directions. Usually it will need rings AND valve job if it's near 150,000 miles. If not compression, change plugs, then wires, then cap and rotor, in that order. If not better, try Techron in your fuel for three tankfulls. WalMart has it for $9.

Have to change the fuel pump, whats the easiest way

Good luck on that - I believe the fuel pump is mounted INSIDE the gas tank in an assembly that includes the float and sock filter. You probably just filled the tank ( my luck goes that way too) and will need to siphon or drain the tank to do the job. This job is pretty involved and you may want to take it to a shop if you can afford to. If the problem is no fuel, you may want to change the fuel filter first - it's mounted against the frame rail, driver side, under the car. Make sure you release the fuel pressure by pressing down the release valve on the fuel rail under the hood, top of motor. The release valve looks like a tire's air valve and will spray gas at you so put a rag over it before pushing.

Where in the car is the fuel filter and how do I replace it?

the fuel filter is right outside the fuel tank in line with the fuel system in front of the tank and you need a special tool to release the clamps at auto zone for around 15 bucks and should take about 30 minutes to change and pretty simple job dont need to jack up the car or anything

Change fuel filter in a 2006 Chevrolet Uplander

prev.gif next.gif Fuel Filter The fuel filter is part of the fuel tank module. (in the fuel tank)

It's kind of difficult to drop a fuel tank and replace the fuel tank module due to the weight and danger of gasoline catching fire or exploding.

Change audi a3 air filter?

You can find an instruction video on how to change an air filter at:

I'm not sure wether you mean 1) "changing the original filter for a fresh one" or 2) "change the air filter to a different sporty type" (like i.e. an open air filter).

Either way it's pretty simple: the most important part is finding the correct filter for your car (model, type, year). A paper replacement filter (the same as the factory one) costs around 20 euro's and lasts around 30 000km, a more sporty cotton/foam one with improved airflow and durability costs around 60~70 euro (will last a life time, although needs cleaning every 50 000km) and might sound a little sportier.

Then find the airbox (which in your case is the big box on right with a big hose on the left, in front of the battery, can't miss). Unscrew the 3 bolds, remove the top and you'll see the air filter. Unscrew the placeholder on the left and the air filter will just pop out. Then pop in the replacement part and screw everything back. It's a simple, clean 5 minute job.

Replacing the whole airbox unit for an open filter is nearly as simple; get the correct replacement filter, unscrew the original airbox and screw the new one in place (following the directions which come with the replacement part). This is a 15 minute job, but still pretty simple and might have a noticable effect on performance (better throttle-response and 2~6 hp more). This looks something like: (the purple filter being the aftermarket K&N air filter).

89 f-150 turns over just wont start

If the only evidence of trying to start was when u used starter fluid, it's probably a fuel issue. After attempting to start several times, pull a plug and check for gas/wet plug. If there is no evidence of gas reaching the plug, it's probably the fuel pump. Change the fuel filter too.
