You'll can

But you'll have to plug the line very fast. with the pressure and volume of a full tank it makes that simple job a bit more of a task.

When you remove the rubber line from the nozzle of the fuel filter have a stemming plug or bolt handy to quickly insert to seal the flow from the line coming from the tank.

If you can either drain the tank via manual or electronic siphon or run some of that fuel out. Before taking that on or you're going to spill an yet to be determined amount of fuel.

My 1988 Plymouth Reliant has a skip in it, when I press the accelerator, it drives smooth and then randomly skips


If tune-up, (plugs and wires) fuel filter changed, throttle body cleaned etc, hasn't been done in a while, that would be a good place to start.

You're right; It sounds like fuel delivery, but start with the simplest suspects first.
Change the fuel filter(s) first, and if this doesn't get it, go for the fuel pump.

Car cuts out seems like its not getting gas,,,changed filter near carbuator, run for 2 days then same problem


most probably a buildup of junk in the tank that is clogging the fuel filter, try changing it again and pull the old one apart to see if there is stuff in it.

Changing Fuel Filter in a 1988 Plymouth Reliant


Hi there!

It's located on the passenger side of the car in front of the rear tire.
Change it in the morning, after the car has stood overnight as it will be under pressure otherwise, and need to be depressurised.
Have a bowl and rags handy to catch spilled fuel during this operation.

You will need a Spanner to remove the bolt holding the filter and pliers and/or a screwdriver to remove the hose clamps from the filter.
Remove the bolt and then remove the hose clamps. Slowly pull the hoses off the filter. Dispose of the used filter properly. Then reverse the steps to put on the new filter

If this proves useful, Please spare a moment to rate it as Fixya! Thanks.

NO FUEL GETTING TO ENGINE


It might be your fuel injectors clogged maybe.

Yeah, The fuel filter for a 2.2L plymouth reliant Le is on the passenger side just before the rear tire. Its like right next to the gas tank. Sort of in by the middle (not by the body frame). Hope this helps.
