Question about 1998 Dodge Stratus
The filter is tucked up behind the fuel tank and mounted to the frame rail. The tank must be lowered to reach the filter, so plan on changing the filter when the fuel tank is nearly empty.
The procedure to replace the fuel filter on 1998 dodge stratus is as follows:- 1) Raise the rear of the car with a jack and support it on jack stands. Remove the jack but keep it handy because you are going to use it again. 2) Open the trunk of your car and fold back the carpet on the left side of the trunk. Locate the fuel pump electrical connector and unplug it. 3) Push the wiring harness and connector through the hole in the floor where it comes into the trunk. 4) Locate the drain plug on the bottom of the fuel tank and place a drain pan under the drain. Remove the plug with a wrench and allow any fuel to drain out of the tank. Replace the drain plug and tighten it with a wrench. 5) Support the fuel tank with a floor jack and with a socket and ratchet, remove the retaining bolt on the driver's side fuel tank strap. Loosen the bolt on the passenger's side strap as well, but do not remove it. 6) Lower the jack, allowing the tank to drop on the driver's side of the car. Do not remove the jack--keep it under the tank for support. Remove the fuel lines from the filter using a set of fuel line disconnect tools. 7) Remove the mounting bolt securing the filter to the frame of the car and remove the filter. The filter is out now. 8)Install a new filter in its place. Install the retaining bolt for the filter and tighten it with a ratchet and socket. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query.
