SOURCE: does gas flow out of the fuel lines when changing

You should loose a little through the lines and the filter itself. When you replace the filter, turn your key on and wait about 6 seconds before cranking. This will allow the fuel pump to force fuel through the empty new filter. You will still experience a small delay when cranking until the air passes through the line.

SOURCE: how do you change a fuel filter on a 2004 chevy

The actual changing of the filter is pretty easy.

You just need to jack up the middle of the TB and crawl under. Just in front of the fuel tank if you look up, you'll see a small metal can with the fuel lines going into it.

The clips on each fitting pop off, and then you loosen the clamp holding it in place.

Just reverse this to install the new one.

Shouldn't take more than 10-15 minutes

SOURCE: How do I replace the fuel filter in my 2004 Chevy

The filter is on the inner frame rail in front of the gas tank on the DRIVER'S side. You undo the rubber clip that holds the filter and pull the whole thing down so you can undo the clips for the input and output. Be careful to not mix these up. If you do, just follow the lines and see which way they go.
Don't release the fuel pressure (valve is inside the screw off cap) until you have pulled the filter down off of the frame, and have something ready to catch the small amount of gas that will come out.

SOURCE: 2005 chevy trailblazer, rough start,

With temperature related problems, check your intake manifold bolts for tightness. Our intakes are plastic and have a tendency to become loose, causing vacuum leaks. When it warms up, the plastic intake will expand sealing any leaks. But when it's cold, will contract, causing leaks. Easiest to check are cylinder #5 & 6 near the fire wall.

Also, clean your throttle body, a dirty throttle body will cause idle problems, especially in TB's because we don't have a true PCV valve, so gets dirty which causes sticking of the butterfly.

I cant get any power out of my car when i go up a hill and when i get it up to about 70 it will run good but then sputter but runs good around town

Fuel filters normally cause this kind of problem. Check the fuel filters. If it sputters when you accelerate hard this is the most common sign. If the filters are fine run a fuel system cleaner in the gas and then change your spark plugs.

It sounds rough and the car is shaking, it just sounds like it wants to turn off

fuel filter could be stopped up or pump could be going out, if it does alot of jumping and shaking like spittting and sputtering it may be the coil pack.
