On that year of car it should be in the carberator, you will have to remove the fuel line that screws into carb, and there is also a fitting behind that, that screws out of the carb too, it will be in that fitting, i don't believe there is one in the line before the fuel pump unless someone installed an aftermarket one.

Can you tell me were is the fuel filter is at on a 1984 corvett i am noy geting gas

A fuel filter will not cause a no start, even one that is really clogged. Check the fuel pump, do you hear a hum from it when the key is turned to on for one second? It is pretty loud. The fuel filter is just aft of the right front tire under the car.

Where s the fuel filter on and 84 oldsmobile cutlass

It depends on which Cutlass you have. If you have the full size gas engine Cutlass, the fuel filter is in the carburator. Remove the main gas line going in the front of the carb. Then unscrew the large fitting from the carb. the filter goes inside that fitting. There is a right way and a wrong way to put it back in, so pay attention to how it comes out. This type of filter should be changed every 2 or 3 months because it's so small.

If you have the diesel powered Cutlass, the filter is a square box type thing on the back of the engine above the intake manifold. simply remove the lines and replace the filter. Rehook the lines, start the car and check for leaks. This type of filter should be changed twice a year, spring and fall because they change the additives in diesel fuel depending on air temperatures.

If you have a Cutlass Ciera you will have different procedures again, unles it has a carburator. Hope this helps.

My 1984 cutlass calais is burnin threw transmission every 6 months and cant seem to keep a 350 turbo kno longer than a yr

Next time you change it, be sure to flush the entire system out. Including the lines and cooler in the rad. Possibly filings in your oil, and it is shortening the tranny life.

I have a 1984 Diesel Cutlass Seira Brogham (4 door) that has been in dry storage for many years. I've heard that some kind of bacteria forms in the diesel fuel when stored for long periods. How do I...

Bacteria is usually only a problem if you have water in the fuel.With the car sitting for many years it would be a good idea to drain out the old fuel because it's shelf life would have expired anyway. When you have it out of the car check the look of the fuel. If it appears cloudy and not clear there is water in it.Replace the fuel with new and replace the fuel filters.Biocide's should be available at the dealer or autoparts store and follow the instructions on the can. It would probably be a wiser idea to use the dealer here. Hope this helps.

1984 Olds Cutlass Cierra Body Frame matches what other cars.

I'm not sure that they are an exact match, but the equivalent GM vehicles for the Cutlass Ciera were the Chevrolet Celebrity, the Buick Century, and the Pontiac 6000.
