Just disconnect the battery cable to be on the safe side. A little bit of fuel will come out. Make sure there is no source of spark such as a running fan etc. It is best to have a fire extinguisher around, and do not work alone.

Also would be a good idea to use a catch basin the fuel to drain into as well as yes make sure nothing such as a drop light is near and a fire extinguisher always ...and disconnect the battery as well jack the vehicle up and use jack stands for safety also ,....remove the old filter using line wrenches are in my opinion best as the filter nuts are really on if it hasn't been off in some time that is the hardest part ...remove the old filter a screw and bracket hold it in-place reinstall is reverse procedure after installation is complete turn the key to the on position 1st to ensure no leak's if OK then start vehicle and reinspect for leaks again hopefully they are none if so recheck the connections

Where is the fuel filter located on a 2001 Hyundai elantra

That fuel filter is in the fuel tank, attached to the fuel pump. Not a very difficult job. Remove the rear seat cushion, then remove the access panel to the pump. Remove the gas cap to relieve any pressure. Remove the ground wire and fuel lines, then remove the filter.

Where is the fuel filter on a 2005 chevy malibu, 4 cylinder

  • Remove the gas cap to relieve pressure in the tank. Lift the hood and locate the fuse panel on the driver's side. Remove the fuel pump fuse. Turn the ignition and attempt to start the car; if it runs, allow it to stall. Turn off the ignition. Remove the negative terminal from the battery.
  • 2 Locate the fuel filter beneath the car between the rear axle and the gas tank. Remove the protective plastic cover with a screwdriver.
  • 3 Remove the carriage bolt securing the filter to the frame. Detach the inlet and outlet fuel line fittings with an open-end wrench. Fuel may spill as you turn the nuts, so have rags or a small container ready.
  • 4 Insert the new filter and secure the fuel lines and carriage bolt. Reattach the plastic cover.
  • 5 Replace the fuel filter fuse, negative battery terminal and gas cap. Close the hood and turn the ignition on. Allow the car to idle for a few minutes while the new filter fills with gasoline.

    Yes, it is mounted on top and inside the fuel tank. Look for an access panel above the fuel pump inside the vehicle. If there is none then you will have to remove the fuel tank in order to replace the fuel pump. Make sure to install a new fuel filter if applicable. Before removing the fuel pump, replace the filter, check the fuse, and fuel pump relay. You can hear the pump run for a few seconds after turning on the key without starting the engine. Open the fuel filler door and remove the fuel cap. Have someone turn no the ignition, and listen for the pump. Even if you hear it run that does not mean it is ok. It may be very weak.

    Has spark but doesnt fire up

    Possible cause would be no fuel to injectors. turn the key to the on position and listen for the fuel pump to come on and pressurize the fuel rail. If you do not hear the pump come on then look in the fuse/relay box for a blown fuse/relay. If you hear the fuel pump come on then turn the key off after the pump has completed running and disconnect the negative cable from the battery. Go to the fuel rail and there will be a round test port,remove the black plastic cap(like a valve stem cap on a tire) using a shop towel partly cover the port. Using a very small screw driver press down on the valve stem, if the fuel comes out at a high volume then the pump and filter is ok. If not then replace fuel filter, that is if you heard the pump come on in the first place. If you never heard the pump come on and the fuse/relay was ok then the pump will have to be replaced. hope this will help you.

    How do i replace the fuel filter on a 2000 Nissan Sentra

    Fuel filter for SRDE20B15 engines (00-01) are in the tank mounted on top of the fuel pump inside the fuel assembly. Release fuel pressure by starting car and removing the fuel pump fuse, open fuel filler cap, remove rear seat, open fuel assembly cover by turning the screws clockwise, remove harness, remove fuel line quick connector carefully (if pressure was not relieved, gas will leak, make sure to release pressure completely), take out fuel assembly (watch out for fuel level sensor and temp sensor thingies). Pop top off the fuel assembly and pop fuel level sensor unit with screwdriver. Remove fuel pump harness connector, quick connectors. Pop top off completely, pop fuel filter+pump assembly out, remove fuel pump bracket on the bottom of it. Push fuel pump down from the top harness connector, Take out the rubber grommet (very important - car won't start) between fuel filter and fuel pump, put it into new fuel filter, and reverse all the steps to close it up.

    Where is that fuel filter

    Removal & Installation Two types of filters are used, depending on the vehicle. Both are located between the rear axle and the fuel tank.
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Unscrew the cover box.
    Fuel pump/filter assembly

    Fuel pump package cover

    1. Remove the gas cap, fuel pump cover and pressure hoses.
    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.

    Locate fuel filter, and safety switch to fuel pump

    The filter is located at the rear seat, you have to remove it first, then you will see a cap attach with some screws. Inside that cap you`ll find the fuel filter. Before you change the fuel filter you have to release the fuel pressure first. To do that, first find the FUEL PUMP RELAY in the main fuse box located in the engine. Once you located open the fuel door and take off the cap and leave it open. Start the engine, take off the FUEL PUMP RELAY and leave the engine stop itself, when this occurs turn off the key, the you can take off the filter and changed it

    Fuel filter

    The system is pressurised! Be careful!

    Remove your fuse for the fuel pump.

    Start the engine and idle until the engine stops.

    Try starting it again to make sure there is no more fuel in the system.

    This will depressurise your system. Undo your fuel filler cap just to make certain!

    When this is done, push the clips down the pipe away from the filter, or remove the clips.

    Pull off the pipes and replace the filter.

    Reattach the clips in the same place.

    Screw in the fuel filler cap.

    Replace the fuse and crank the engine until it fires.
