Pretty sure there should be a washer beneath the fitting as well as on top. I see the one on top. There should also be a copper washer below the fitting.

SOURCE: can't adjust 2004 Ford Expedition headlight

I had a similar problem on my 04 expedition. I just bought it and the headlights were aiming too far down. A rather larger gap was noticeable between the headlight and the hood. The so called adjustment bolt did nothing. I removed the headlights and found 2 issues. On the adjustment bolt there is a washer. Make sure when you re-install the headlight the washer sets on top of the plastic slot and is visible when looking down behind the headlight. Without the washer being in the correct location it will not tighten the headlight in place.
Second I found the adjustment bolt adjusted nothing. It merely tightened the headlight in place. What I had to do was to loosen this bolt and physically move the headlight into place and the re-tighten the bolt. Hence the slot is the adjustment. Turning the bolt CW or CCW did not move the headlight.
I tried several things trying to figure why the lights would not move until I realized I could move the light with my hands and tightened them in place using the adjustment bolt.

This may not be your issue but I found the owners manual instructions to be useless.

SOURCE: How to remove the top bolts from the rear shocks

bolts should be easily removed after breaking them loose. If someone replaced them and used nuts on the backside, it may present a problem & require cutting the heads off. Sometimes you can snake a distributor wrench above to grab nut but on most jeeps this is difficult because there isn't enough clearance. Really soak them down with good solvent at least twice several hours before attempting to remove.

SOURCE: change 2001 rodeo shocks

If you are replacing the shocks anyway, you may be able to snap a vice grip on the shaft so that it won't spin.

Sometimes you can use a pipe wrench too.

If the vehicle is supported on the frame, it will expose more of the shaft.

How much fuel pressure for 91 acura

Acura legend says, 38--46 psi. I believe that spec is with fuel pressure regulator vac line disconnected and plugged. I'm not sure how you are checking fuel pressure? My info says there is a banjo bolt on fuel filter and a service plug in the top of banjo bolt. Usually after the vehicle sits over-night, not much pressure on the system, but, you still need to be aware. Place shop rags around service plug, slowly loosen service plug, then you may need a banjo bolt service adapter to screw in place of the plug so you can use fuel pressure gage.
If you have different model then I need to know model and engine size?

May have air in the gas line. where to bleed?

There is no good way to do it. It can be done at the banjo connection on the top of the fuel filter. It is found on the drivers side of the engine compartment just below the air filter. Make sure you get a wrench on the top nut just below the banjo connect to hold the fuel filter from turning while removing the banjo bolt. Place a rag over the fitting to keep gas from spraying all over and something to catch the drips. Once loose you can jumper the B+ terminal with the Fp terminal in the diagnostic connector. Then turn the ignition to the on position and the fuel pump will start running with out starting the car. You may need new copper washers to reseal the banjo connection.

I need a picture of my motor in my celica gt 2000 so i ca locate my ful filter

Removal & Installation Look for the filter on the side of the fenderwell under the hood, if not on either side look on the firewall mounted with 1 bolt.


CAUTION Observe all applicable safety precautions when working around fuel. Whenever servicing the fuel system, always work in a well ventilated area. Do NOT allow fuel spray or vapors to come in contact with a spark or open flame. Keep a dry chemical fire extinguisher near the work area. Always keep fuel in a container specifically designed for fuel storage; also, always properly seal fuel containers to avoid the possibility of fire or explosion.
There are two types of fittings used on fuel filter connections. The banjo fitting or union bolt type uses a bolt and two washers to prevent leakage between an eyelet and the filter. The flare fitting type uses no washers or bolts. It uses a thread interference pattern to make a tight connection.

  1. Unbolt the retaining screws and remove the protective shield (if equipped) for the fuel filter.
  2. Place a pan under the delivery pipe (large connection) to catch the dripping fuel and SLOWLY loosen the banjo fitting bolt or flare fitting at the bottom of the filter to bleed off the fuel pressure.

Fig. Remove the union bolt and two gaskets, then disconnect the inlet hose from the fuel filter

CAUTION To avoid personal injury, remember that the fuel system is under pressure. Release pressure slowly and contain spillage. Wear eye protection and observe no smoking/no open flame precautions. Have a dry powder fire extinguisher within arm's reach at all times.

  1. Remove the banjo bolt or flare fitting and drain the remaining fuel.
  2. Disconnect and plug the inlet line.
  3. Unbolt and carefully remove the fuel filter. It may still contain some fuel.

To install:
When tightening the fuel line bolts to the fuel filter, you must use a torque wrench. The tightening torque is very important, as under or over tightening may cause fuel leakage. Insure that there is sufficient clearance between the fuel filter, lines and any other parts.
  1. Coat the flare or banjo bolt threads along with the copper washers lightly with engine oil. Always use new washers.
  2. Hand tighten the inlet line to the fuel filter.
  3. Install the fuel filter then tighten the banjo type bolt to 22 ft. lbs. (29 Nm) or the flare fitting on the fuel pump side to 17 ft. lbs. (24 Nm) and all others to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm).

WARNING The fuel pump builds high pressure within the lines. If new gaskets are NOT used, a high-pressure leak may spray fuel onto the engine or other hot surface.
  1. Run the engine for a few minutes and check for any fuel leaks.
  2. Install the protective shield if removed.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Remove or disconnect the following:

    Negative battery cable. On vehicles equipped with an air bag, wait at least 90 seconds before proceeding Protective shield for the fuel filter If necessary, air cleaner hose and cap If necessary, charcoal canister. Slowly loosen the lower flare nut fitting until all the pressure is relieved Banjo fitting and 2 metal gaskets. Discard the gaskets Fuel line with the flared nut from the filter Filter from the mounting bracket

To install:
  1. Install or connect the following:

    New fuel filter Banjo fitting with a new metal gasket on each side and install the union bolt. Bolt: 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm). Flare nut to the lower connection. Nut: 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm). Charcoal canister Air cleaner hose and cap Protective shield Negative battery cable

Acura Coupes and Sedans 1986-1993 Repair Guide
Fuel Filter

The recommended change interval for the fuel filter on all models is 60,000 miles under normal service. Severe service will require more frequent changing of the fuel filter.
The filter is located in the passengers side of the engine compartment.

CAUTION Before disconnecting any fuel lines, be sure to open the gas tank filler cap to relieve any pressure in the system and wrap a shop towel around the fuel line fitting before opening. Observe all fuel handling precautions.


See Figures 1, 2 and 3

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Wrap a shop towel around the fittings and using a proper wrench, slowly loosen the fuel line fittings.
  3. Remove the 2 banjo bolts from the fuel lines.
  4. Remove the fuel filter clamp retaining bolt and the clamp.
  5. Remove the filter from the vehicle.

It is very important that ALL of the fuel line banjo bolt washers be replaced every time the banjo bolts are loosened. If the washers are not replaced the fuel lines will leak pressurized fuel causing the risk of fire or explosion.
  1. Install the new filter in position and tighten the clamp mounting bolt to 7 ft. lbs. (10 Nm).
  2. Attach the banjo fittings with new washers in place. On Legend and Vigor, tighten the fuel line flare connector to 28 ft. lbs. (38 Nm). On the remaining models, tighten the banjo fitting bolts to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  3. Start the vehicle and check for leaks.

How do i change a 1990 toyota tercel dx fuel filter

remove the fuel pump fuse, attempt to start vehicle, if it runs then dies that's o.k., this will remove any fuel pressure in the line. next trace back the bigger fuel line to the firewall and you will find the fuel filter. with a 17mm socket remove the top bolt into the fuel filter, this is a banjo bolt so be careful not to loose the two washers. remove the lower nut which is a flare fitting and then remove the 10mm bolt holding the fuel filter bracket to the firewall. remove the old filter and install the new one and reverse the procedure.

Fuel filter has a small leak. even afther tightin the halo bolt.?

The fuel filter has two washers that must be placed first in the banjo bolt and on top of the fuel-filter. Thus the fuel delivery line would be in the middle of those washers. The washers ensure tight sealing to prevent leakage.

You could have forgotten to wipe off the top of the fuel-filter before installing it.
