It is just forward of the passenger side rear wheel. It is connected to three lines with quick disconnect fittings. You don't need any special tools to remove them, just push in the flat buttons on either side of the connectors. When you put the lines back on, just push them on firmly, and then check to see if they are all the way on by pulling them as if to remove them again.

Hi. Your filter is located under your hood. It is mounted on the center, upper fire wall area, on a bracket. The mounting area is just behind the engine block. This is in reference to the 1.8 Liter 4 Cylinder engine.

If you are running a 2.4 Liter engine, the filter will be located under the vehicle, just in front of the fuel tank area. It will be mounted on a bracket, in between the fuel lines.

How often should we change fuel filter for Nissan Teana


hi Drkmaniir.
Changing out your car's fuel filter may not be at the top of your routine auto maintenance list like oil changes and tire rotations. Heck, you may not even know what a fuel filter is.
But mechanics say periodically replacing fuel filters is a good idea because it helps keep your fuel pump and engine running smoothly.
The fuel pump is designed to catch particles, debris or impurities in the gas tank before the fuel reaches the pump, to ensure only clean gasoline reaches your engine.
"They get overlooked a lot and then can go unchanged for quite awhile with no problem," says Frank Satriano, owner of Coachman Automotive in Clearwater, Florida. "Some cars have them in the gas tank and never get serviced, so it just depends on the car and what the manufacturer recommends."

It's important to note that many newer vehicles come with a non-serviceable filter located in the fuel tank, so you'll want to check your owner's manual to see whether it needs to be replaced.

Why you should replace your fuel filter

Like any filter, debris will clog it up over time. This causes the fuel pump to work harder, which can in turn lead to it breaking down. Engines can also be damaged from contaminated fuel.
"Today's vehicles are equipped with more state-of-the-art fuel injectors, which have very tight clearances," says Katy Kreitzer, service manager of Kreitzer's Automotive Service in Enola, Pennsylvania. "If debris enters the fuel injector, it can clog the fuel passages and damage the injector. This may also result in a dripping of fuel instead of a fine spray mist that is required for efficient combustion."
According to Ford Motor Co., you may want to think about changing the filter if the car is difficult to start, idles rough or stalls, has sluggish acceleration, decreased fuel economy or has a tank of bad gas.

"Thirty thousand miles is a good idea for a ballpark interval."Bob Waeiss, owner of Integrity Automotive in Carmel, Indiana, says the old best practice would be to replace the filter every 30,000 miles but that's no longer the norm, he says."As clean as most fuels are today, you could push that off to 60,000 or 90,000 miles," Waeiss says. "Replacing a fuel filter for the first time at or above 100,000 miles may cause a fuel pump failure. Not sure why, other than over time the filter becomes restricted and the pump has to work harder to push the fuel through the line. When a new filter is installed, the pump can't handle the free flow, and it stops pumping."

However, Kreitzer says prices for a new fuel filter typically costs between $100 and $150, which includes parts and labor.According to Auto Service Costs, the average cost for a mechanic to install a new fuel filter is between $53 and $165, while ordering the part itself can cost around $14 to $60.

My subaru 1997 wont start no fuel going in the engine o energy for fuel pump i think is my fuel relay but i dont know the location of it and i need to know the location of the computer


first check fuel pressure, guages sold at local auto store run $30-$50.. but it is a quick hook up and sorts out alot of maybe'sss.

if in fact there is no pressure you are likely correct in looking at a relay or the pump itself.. relay should be labelled with all the other in hood compartment..

whereas, the fuel pump is likely in the tank, so drop the tank, and replace.. they go for about $100 for a rebuilt.. don't forget to also change the fuel filter.. Subaru put the filter easily located in engine compartment.

Good luck

Check out the following. Year of model may be different but it should be pretty much in same location.

The fuel pump relay is located behind the 12 volt junction block and the fuel pump fuse holder on the earlier models.drivers side fire wall.on later models its located in the relay center on the right shock tower or in the right front corner of the engine compartment.
