Release gas cap pressure first ...have a small container to catch over spill and rags because fuel will come out ...wear gloves and goggles and you"ll need two wrenches one for back up to hold back the filter in place while cracking the fittings loose.Installation reverse.

WHERE IS THE FUEL FILTER ON A 88 NISSAN PATHFINDER


Fuel Filter REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CAUTION
NEVER SMOKE WHEN WORKING AROUND OR NEAR GASOLINE! MAKE SURE THAT THERE IS NO ACTIVE IGNITION SOURCE NEAR YOUR WORK AREA! 1970-83 Carbureted Engines The fuel filter is located on the right inner fender in the engine compartment. It is a disposable cartridge type.
  1. Using a pair of pliers, expand the hose clamp on one side of the filter, and slide the clamp further down the hose, past the point to which the filter pipe extends. Remove the other clamp in the same manner.
  2. Grasp the hoses near the ends and twist them gently to pull them free from the filter pipes.
  3. Pull the filter from the clip and discard.
  4. Install the new filter into the clip. Push the hoses onto the filter pipes, and slide the clamps back into position. Start the engine and check for leaks. Fig. 1: Fuel filter - 1970-79 85851035.gif
    Fig. 2: Fuel filter - 1980-83 85851036.gif
1984-86 Carbureted Engines The fuel filter is located on the inside of the frame above the left rear spring front shackle. Changing the filter is VERY awkward. Since it is in-line and below tank level, fuel will pour from the fuel lines when they are disconnected from the filter. The only way of preventing this, is to siphon all of the gasoline from the tank before replacing the filter. Another possible method is to clamp and plug the fuel line, but this is not recommended because of the danger of leaking fuel or damage which could occur to the fuel line when clamped. It would, therefore, be a good idea to run the tank almost dry before changing the filter. Once the tank is dry, disconnect the fuel lines at the filter, unbolt the old filter and install a new one. Reconnect the fuel lines, fill the tank, start the engine and check for leaks. Fig. 3: Fuel filter - 1984-86 85851037.gif

Fuel Injected Engines WARNING
Never attempt to remove the fuel filter without first relieving the fuel system pressure!
  1. Release the fuel pressure from the fuel line as follows:
    1. Remove the fuel pump fuse at the fuse box.
    2. Start the engine.
    3. After the engine stalls, crank the engine two or three times to make sure that the fuel pressure is released.
    4. Turn the ignition switch OFF and reinstall the fuel pump fuse.
  2. Loosen the hose clamps at the fuel inlet and outlet lines then slide each line off the filter nipples.
  3. Remove the fuel filter.
  4. Replace the fuel filter. Always be sure to use new hose clamps. Fig. 7: Fuel filter - 1986-88 VG30i 85851038.gif

Replace fuel filter


The fuel filter is located near the rear of the vehicle, forward or rearward of the fuel tank, depending upon application. There is no service interval for fuel filter replacement. The filter only is replaced if it becomes restricted.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Relieve the fuel system pressure at the shrader valve on the fuel rail. For details regarding this procedure, please refer to Fuel System of this information.
  1. If not done already, disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Clean both fuel feed pipe connections and the surrounding areas at the in-line fuel filter with a clean rag to avoid possible contamination of the fuel system.
  4. Using a backup wrench, remove the fuel line fittings from the fuel filter. Most of the models fuel gilter wrench sizes will be 16mm and 20mm.
  5. Either disconnect the quick-connect fittings by pushing inward toward the filter and grasping the plastic tab around the connector and pull them apart. Or remove the fuel filter mounting screws, then remove the filter from the vehicle.
  6. Discard the fuel line O-rings and replace with new ones during installation.
To install:

Install new O-rings to the fuel line fittings.
Connect the fuel lines to the fuel filter.
Position the filter in the same position it was during removal. Using a backup wrench, tighten the fuel lines to 20-22 ft. lbs. (27-30 Nm).
  1. Install the fuel filter mounting screws if used.
  2. Lower the vehicle. Install or tighten the fuel filler cap, then connect the negative battery cable.
  3. Start the engine and check for leaks. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position for two seconds.Turn the ignition to the OFF position for ten seconds. Turn the ignition to the ON position. Check for leaks.

How to change a fuel filter on a 95 ford f-350 with a 460 engine


You will need to check inside the frame under the drivers door for the fuel filter. You will need a tool to remove the fuel lines. Remove clips from the fuel line holding the fuel filter (new ones supplied with new filter). Use the tool to insert into the fuel line to remove on both sides. Once lines are removed, remove fuel filter and replace with new ones. Be sure to put in new clips and attach lines. Good luck

Where is the fuel filter located on a 1997 contour gl


Fuel filter replacement for the 1995-1997, 1998 Ford Contour (4 Cyl 'Zetec' 16V and 24v Duratech V6) Fuel filter is located under the passenger side of the car in front of the rear wheel. Time: 5-10 min Tool needed: One flat head screwdriver Replace this filter is fairly easy. First, have a replacment filter and absorbent material as this will spill some gas. Suggestion: Remove black caps from new fuel filter. Have those handy when removing old filter. You can use them to cap the gas that will flow out of the old fuel filter, thus saving you a small mess. Also, take a good look at how the old fuel filter looks attached. Replace the new fuel filter with the same side (IN-OUT) The fuel filter is attached via a simple screw cable. Unscrew the cable to loosen the fuel filter (It will not detach by itself). Give it enough slack to pull out once you are ready. Next ,using screwdriver, pop-off white plastic retaining clips. Remove front and rear fuel line. Replace with new filter. Connect fuel lines. Connect white retaining clips on both sides (There will be some play on the connection, but that's normal). Screw the screw cable so filter is connected firmly (Do not overtighten and make sure screw nut is visible so you can see it the next time you need to replace filter. Double check your connections. Turn the ignition to ON for 5 seconds - but do not turn the car on. This will allow the fuel pump to push gas through the filter. Turn ignition OFF. Check to see if there is leakage. If no, turn car's motor ON.

  2. Loosen the screws and remove the filter. Remove the connecting plug from the old filter and install it on a new filter using a new gasket.
To install:
  1. Install a new filter in the direction of flow. Always replace the copper gaskets.
  2. Replace the attaching screws.
  3. Install the pressure hoses, pump cover and gas cap. Torque the banjo fittings to 80 inch lbs. (9 Nm).
  4. Install the fuel filter in the holder by positioning it in the center of the transparent holder. Be sure the plastic sleeve between the fuel filter and fuel pump is installed. Galvanic corrosion may occur in cases of direct contact between these components.
  5. Replace the cover box and check for proper sealing.
