Open the gas door and remove the gas cap. This will help to alleviate the pressure in the fuel line.

  • Step 2 Crawl under the Bravado and trace the fuel line from the fuel tank. The filter is an in-line filter and attached to the fuel line.
  • Step 3 Unsnap the fuel inlet line from the filter. The filter is equipped with a quick-connect fitting that can be unsnapped and pulled off the piping of the filter.
  • Step 4 Remove the outlet line off the piping of the filter. This line can removed the same as the inlet line.
  • Step 5 Unbolt the mounting bracket holding the filter in place with a socket wrench. The bracket is held in place by one bolt.
    Replacing the Fuel Filter
  • Step 1 Attach the new fuel filter to the mounting bracket and secure it to the frame. Tighten the bracket snugly with the socket wrench. Ensure the arrow on the filter is facing toward the front of the vehicle. The arrow indicates fuel flow direction.
  • Step 2 Snap the inlet line on the filter. Push the line on to the piping of the filter till it clicks in place.
  • Step 3 Connect the outlet line on the filter. This line will snap in place as well.
  • Step 4 Screw the gas cap back on to the fuel door. Close the gas door.
  • Step 5 Crank up the SUV and let it idle. Ensure there is no hesitation or stalling

    Have 97 gmc suburban. Has a jerk to it when I'm crusein on highway and from time to time seems as if im hitting a bunch of little bumps an it boggs down. I let off gas it stops what could this b?

    Could be the fuel filter. Watch the speed it happens. IE.. Ok at 50 MPH, hit 60 MPH it starts jerking. Clogged filers will give the pressure need, just not the volume of fuel need at higher speeds.

    Why does my 1995 Sonoma 4.3 bogg down when I give it gas or passing gear?

    Depending on the mileage, the most common problems are low fuel volume due to a restricted fuel filter or weak fuel pump. The other possible cause is a partially clogged catalytic converter, which puts back pressure on or "boggs" the engine when trying to accelerate.

    you could have many different problems . your fuel injectors could be clogging up / your fuel pressure regulator / your fuel filter/ your throttle position sensor etc. do you have a check engine light on ? if you do when you take it to your mechanic he can use his obd scan tool to read the code and then take it from there

    My 06 pontiac g6 wont go over 30 mph and boggs down if i push on the gas

    If valve was bent couldn't even do 30 mph. So first check gas filter as a basic first. If clogged will cut power down. Otherwise computer wiring.l
    Any lights go on If not u might want to skip gas filter

    When i push on the gas from a dead stop the motor boggs down and has a slow take off what could be the problem

    Could be several problems: bent/crushed exhaust, emission problem, clogged catalytic converter, clogged fuel filter. Start by checking exhaust and replacing the fuel filter first. If not those, then you'll have to have a mechanic check emission system or cat converter.

    1994 Toyota Camry XLE replaced fuel pump & filter car starts & idles but boggs out and cuts off when pressing gas pedal?

    have you pulled codes or checked the fuel pressure? It could be a host of things, like a clogged air filter restricting the flow of air into the engine, a bad air meter, clogged injectors, etc. Engine codes will help you start narrowing things down.

    Has the engine air filter ever been changed?

    Please check and fix your fuel filter and strainer inside gas tank. They may almost clog up, that giving you waving gas pressure.

    98 gmc jimmy starts hard runs give it gas 1500rpm boggs down!! and nothin else wont excel over 1500rpm boggs down!

    It sounds like the fuel fiter is clogged. Change the filter. It is located under the driver side of the vehicle tucked up inside the frame rail. Be sure to let the vehicle sit long enough for the pressure to bleed off before removing the old filter.
