No, that isn't true, Honda's do, but not GM's. It's in the tank, and you have to drop the tank to get it out.

    Iv had a problem similar to this with my oldsmobile. It ran fine on the way to the library, but when I was leaving it would not start up. I checked the fule filter and was fine but I replaced it any ways. Had it looked at and tested by a machinists. File pressure was great and computer tested fine with no errors. Changed the spark plugs and tested the board that the spark plugs are connected to and it came up working fine. After all that it still wouldn't run. Finally what ended being the problem in the first place was my fule injectors were cloged. With it being an old car, the gas tank had a little rust in it. EBay has some cheap injectors for the 89 oldsmobile

Fuel filter location and how to replace it. Also replaced plugs and wires and fuel constumption has gotten worse any ideas?? This is a 97 dodge 1500 4x4 5.2 V8


the fuel filter on your truck is in the fuel tank, connected to the fuel pump and is a "fail only part" meaning it requires no maintenance. Fuel filter failure is unlikely, yet not impossible. more than likely your fuel mileage is the result of some other issue. How many miles is on the truck? is there any other symptoms with the vehicle, for instance: rattling, engine missfire, or lack of power? Is there a check engine light on? if so, Pep boys will scan the codes for free if you sign up for a free pep boys card.
hopefully this gives you a place to start......
let me know if i can be of further assistance.

89 oldsmobile 98 won't start


If you suspect its a fuel problem best to do a fuel pressure test, you can rent a tester at auto zone and do it yourself. They also can show you how to use it and what pressure it should be. Also if you turn the key to on position you should hear a hum from the gas tank and then a click that is the pump running and the click is the relay, if you don't then the pump isent running, also chk. the fuse and relay, it could be as simple as a blowen fuse or a bad relay.

1988 oldsmobile cutlass ciera check engine light on then stalled.


Wow! thats verry low miles for an 88. Check the fuel pressure at the injector. If the pressure is low the filter could be clogged or the pump is not putting out enough pressure. Replace both if the pressure is not up to par. also check the fuel relays.
