REPLACEMENT of a fuel filter on a 1997


cd7cd12.gif
The fuel filter (1) is mounted next to the fuel pump module (2), on top of the fuel tank (3)


The fuel delivery system uses quick-connect fittings. The fuel filter mounts to the top of the fuel tank.
  1. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Place a drain pan underneath the fuel filter to catch any spilling fuel that will result from disconnecting the fuel lines.
It may be necessary to support the weight of the fuel tank with a block of wood and a floor jack. Once this is accomplished, loosen, but do not remove, the fuel tank strap bolts. Allow the fuel tank to lower just enough to access the fuel line fittings at the fuel pump module.

Replacing the fuel filter on 1994 Chevy k2500


The fuel filter is located on the left (drivers side) frame rail.It will either have two flare nut fittings,or a flare nut on one side and quick disconnect fitting on the other. With the engine off and key out of the ignition switch,remove the fuel cap to relieve any pressure in the fuel system.Use a couple of wrenches to remove the flare nuts or use your fingers to depress the little white tabs on the quick disconnect flange.You will lose a little fuel,so have a container such as a oil drain pan to catch the fuel.After the new filter is installed,put the key into the ignition and turn to the on position without starting the engine.You should hear the fuel pump pressurize the fuel system.Perform this step at least twice,then start the engine and check for leaks. Good luck.
