Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Alero
The filter is right behind the fuel tank and is parellel to the tank is about three inches in diameter, first you have to diconnect the negative terminal of your batterie, second relieve the pressure on the system, to do so start you car and remove the fuel pump fuse your car will die shortly after. to remove the incoming line to the filter you may need a special tool that would be available from your dealer or posssibly a auto tool store, to remove the output line you will need two types of wrenches a large open end to hold the filter assembly and a flare nut wrench for the nut (it is very important to use the wrench on the filter body to prevent twisting your fuel line), you will have to remove the bracket for your filter also....Good luck!!

It is actually quite easy to change the fuel filter out on this vehicle and you don't need to take it to a garage to have it done. The fuel filter is located in the fuel line, in the center of the vehicle, behind the fuel tank. The basically you are going to take the old one off and put the new one back on. This involves removing the fuel lines from the filter and then there will be a bracket that is holding the filter to the vehicle that you need to take apart. After that you just put everything back together the way you found it. Just make sure that you relieve the fuel pressure by taking the gas cap off before you start this. I'm adding a link that actually has diagrams of what you need to do to replace the fuel filter. Let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks for using FixYa and for giving me a FixYa rating!
