It's called an in-line fuel filter. You'll have to pick a "safe place" to install it away from "ANY" heat of the engine or exhaust lines. The old ones were glass and really nice. Easy to see if they were clogged. Now they're all plastic and throw-away from what I've seen. Better to see if you have stuff in your line by pumping a pint out into a glass jar and looking for residue or debris. If you have some, the line will still clog up fast, plus you'll need to replace (or clean) your old filter. This doesn't "STOP" a problem. If it's contaminated, you need to clean out your gas tank and THAT's DANGEROUS! Been there, watched one blow up! If it's rust- replace the tank OR car. If it's OLD gas, then you can possibly put in a product that "renews" the gas. Then use a fuel cleaner for awhile to cut the varnish out of your system. VERY time-consuming and may not work.

Gas filter for Nissan Altima2006


Like many late model cars the fuel system in this car doesn't use an in line filter anymore, this has been the case since the early 2000's, so there is no part number. The only filter in the system is the fine mess nylon screen at the intake to the fuel pump inside the gas tank.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 2001 Mazda Protege 2.0 LX?


A 2001 Mazda Protege (actually, all models from 1999-2003 including the DX, LX, ES, Mazdaspeed, and Protege 5) does not have an inline fuel filter. The only fuel filter it has is a "strainer" or a "screen", which looks like a nylon mesh "sock". This strainer is connected to the fuel pump, located in the gas tank. Although this fuel strainer does not require periodic replacement, it is recommended that it be changed if you are replacing the fuel pump.

Where is the fuel pump it is a 1996 mazda capella station wagon 1800 automatic we ran it out of gas then we topped it up but it wont fire up. fuel isnt getting pumped up. we have done everything else...


Usually the fuel pump is in the gas tank. It has a pipe going to the bottom of the tank with a strainer on it. You might find that the strainer has got clogged with the rubbish that develops in a tank over the year, especially now that the fuel level has got so low. I have a Corolla but I am sure that the Mazda is similar Remove the bottom of the rear seat and you will see a cover held on with a couple of screws. Remove that and you will see the tank below. There is a plate on the top of the tank with an electrical connection going to it. Have someone switch on the ignition and try to hear if the pump whirrs. If so it might just need cleaning. Remove the electrical cables and loosen the screws enough to move the plate just a little so that you can break the seal without damaging the gasket. Once the seal is broken, undo the plate and remove the pump. The strainer will pull off the bottom. Wash it in soapy water, rinse and replace.

Auto repair shop states that fule pump needs


If that problem with the gas guage is bothering you badly enough, then you will have to replace the fuel pump. The repair shop is on the up and up. The fuel level sending unit on the Mazda 6 is an integral part of the fuel pump assembly and is monitored by the computer. If the sending unit is defective then the entire pump assembly must be replaced, since the pump cannot be disassembled. Sorry about that, but I sure hope this helped ya!

When you give the car gas on take of the motor cuts out. if you give it a small amout of gas it runs good . this is a 2000 mazda protege automatic .it seems like a pluged fuel filter,but it does not have...


It does have a fuel pump strainer in the tank mounted on the fuel pick up line. You might try some cleaners such as Berrymans that can be added to the tank to clean the strainer. If this doesn't work check your fuel pressure, and if it is not within specs, you may have to pull the strainer and clean it. It also could be your fuel pressure regulator (quite expensive on this model($245) This regulator is vacuum operated so I also would make sure there is not a vacuum leak to it before changing it.
