How do you disconnect rear connection on a 2002 impala fuel filter? The front connection si simple enough (flange nut). But the rear seems to have some sort of plastic quick disconnect. I don't want to just guess and break it. Thanks, Tom

You can buy a cheap tool for doing it the tool is a little plastic collar that goes around the fuel line and slides into the connection and releases the spring holding it together I bought mine at the advance store cal-van tools # 684

How to replace gas filter


The gas or commonly referred to as a fuel filter is pretty simple to replace. Its usually located on the drivers side frame rail roughly where the rear door is. Its a small silver/grey canister looks like a can of corn/peas/fruit etc. but a little smaller. Its is connected by two quick disconnects either tabs or 2 flare nuts which can be used with a common wrench in any tool set. Very easy to change. Make sure you loosen the gas cap before working to release the pressure on the fuel system prior to breaking loose the lines to the filter. Hope this helps

How to change a fuel pump in a 1998 oldsmobile regency


JACK UP REAR OF CAR AND SUPPORT WITH JACK STANDS. STANDS SHOULD BE PLACED UNDER REAR DOORS AT FOLDED SHEET METAL, AKA ROCKER PANEL. MAKE SURE TO GIVE ENOUGH ROOM FOR REMOVAL OF TANK WITH FUEL TANK ON JACK. REMOVE THE HOSE CONNECTING TANK TO FILLER CAP TUBE. SIPHON OUT ALL THE FUEL YOU CAN. NEXT, SUPPORT TANK IN MIDDLE USING A PIECE OF PLYWOOD OR OTHER THIN MATERIAL TO DISTRIBUTE WEIGHT OVER A GREATER AREA OF TANK TO KEEP JACK FROM BENDING IT TOO BAD.RAISE JACK AND APPLY GENTLE PRESSURE ON TANK. 2 METAL STRAPS HOLD TANK IN PLACE. EACH HAS A NUT ON ONE END. RENOVE NUT, SLIGHTLY LOWER TANK WITH STRAPS BENT OUT OF WAY. NOW DISCONNECT ELECTRICAL PLUG FOR FUEL SENDING UNIT, USUALLY GREEN WITH A FEW WIRES.DISCONNECT ANY OTHER HOSES, PRESSURE HOSE AND RETURN HOSE AND VENT HOSE. PRESSURE HOSE AND RETURN HOSE MAY TAKE A SPECIAL TOOL. YOU CAN CHECK AHEAD OF TIME AT PART STORE. CAREFULLY LOWER TANK. WHERE LINES CAME FROM TANK THERE IS A ROUND FLANGE THAT HAS PLACES FOR A FLATHEAD SCREWDRIVER TO PUSH AGAINST TO ROTATE. USUALLY 4 STICKING UP. YOU WILL ALSO SEE THE FLANGE HAS RAMP LIKE PLACES GOING UNDER TABS ON TANK, THESE ALLOW THE FLANGE TO SORT OF SCREW INTO TANK AND SQUISH SEAL TO KEEP GAS FROM LEAKING OUT. ROTATE FLANGE COUNTER CLOCKWISE BT HAMMERING ON SCREWDRIVER AGAINST ONE OF THE 4 TABS OF THE FLANGE, GO AS FAR AS YOU CAN AND MOVE TO THE NEXT TAB IF IT GETS DIFFICULT TO ROTATE.REMOVE WHOLE SENDING UNIT WITH SEAL. DEPENDING ON WHAT YOU WERE SOLD AT PARTS HOUSE CHANGE OUT PARTS AND SEAL AND REINSTALL, SOUNDS HARDER THAN IT IS . WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT, IT'S ONLY 2 NUTS AND A COUPLE OF HOSES.

I have to replace the fuel filter on my 2002 chevy impala and saw a few different ways of replacing it. I was wondering what one was the correct way to do so. The one that I actually understand is to just...


I don't know if you have to start at a certain end. I usually loosen both line nuts then remove the rear one. Then I hold the front line nut with a wrench and unscrew the filter from the nut. Depressurizing the system can be done by depressing the valve inside the fuel pressure test port located on the fuel rail. Place a shop rag over the valve and carefully depress the needle valve inside the valve stem with a small screwdriver. do this a few times until no fuel comes out. Always wear safety glasses when performing this procedure. Always use line wrenches on the filter nuts.

    Changing fuel filter on 2002 Mazda pickup


    Clean all dirt and/or grease from the fuel filter fittings. "Quick Connect" fittings are used on models equipped with a pressurized fuel system. These fittings must be disconnected using the proper procedure or the fittings may be damaged. The fuel filter uses a "hairpin" clip retainer. Spread the two hairpin clip legs about 1/8 in. (3mm) each to disengage it from the fitting, then pull the clip outward. Use finger pressure only; do not use any tools. Push the quick connect fittings onto the filter ends. Mazda recommends that the retaining clips be replaced whenever removed. The fuel tubes used on these fuel systems are manufactured in 5/16 in. and 3/8 in. diameters. Each fuel tube takes a different size hairpin clip, so keep this in mind when purchasing new clips. A click will be heard when the hairpin clip snaps into its proper position. Pull on the lines with moderate pressure to ensure proper connection. Start the engine and check for fuel leaks. If the inertia switch (reset switch) was disconnected to relieve the fuel system pressure, cycle the ignition switch from the OFF to ON position several times to re-charge the fuel system before attempting to start the engine.
    0900c15280192eed.jpgRemove the "hairpin" clip retainers to access the fuel line fittingsThe inline reservoir type fuel filter should last the life of the vehicle under normal driving conditions. If the filter does need to be replaced, proceed as follows:
    CAUTIONIf the fuel filter is being serviced with the rear of the vehicle higher than the front, or if the tank is pressurized, fuel leakage or siphoning from the tank fuel lines could occur. to prevent this condition, maintain the vehicle front end at or above the level of the rear of vehicle. also, relieve tank pressure by loosening the fuel fill cap. cap should be tightened after pressure is relieved.
    1. Shut the engine off. Depressurize the fuel system.
    2. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
    3. Detach the fuel lines from both ends of the fuel filter by disengaging both push connect fittings. Install new retainer clips in each push connect fitting.
    4. Note which way the flow direction arrow points on the old filter.
    5. Remove the filter from the bracket by loosening the filter retaining clamp enough to allow the filter to pass through.
    The flow direction arrow should be positioned as installed in the bracket to ensure proper flow of fuel through the replacement filter.
    1. Install the filter in the bracket, ensuring proper direction of flow as noted by arrow. Tighten clamp to 15-25 inch lbs.
    2. Install the push connect fittings at both ends of the filter.
    3. Lower the vehicle.
    4. Start the engine and check for leaks.
    1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
    2. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
    3. Remove or disconnect the following:

      • Push connect and R-clip fittings from the fuel filter
