Yes it is, the best way is to jack up rear of car, and support it with jack stands, or a car ramp. then you can remove fuel filter safely.

Fuel pump location on a 2003 chevy malibu


Your cars fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. All fuel injected cars except a few older foreign cars [mostly European] have electric pumps located inside the tank. This allows them to make the pressure required by the fuel injectors.

2001 chevy malibu wont start after the car runs out of gas and we put more gas


It may take 3-4 times cranking for a few seconds,
with a 5 second pause between to get fuel up to the engine. Also may have sucked up
some dirt/debris into the fuel pump after running it dry. May want to change fuel filter.
you can try to have someone bang on the bottom of the tank while someone else
cranks engine. Sometimes this will free up a stuck fuel pump. good-day!!

My 2005 chevy malibu is not getting gas. not sure if it is the built in anti theft causing it or if it is the fuel pump. how can u tell the difference. (the security theft light goes on and off) and where...


Hello pass.... The fuel pump is in the gas tank. The malibu does not have any fuel filters it only has a strainer on the fuel pump itself. You will have to drop the gas tank to get to the fuel pump.
The Malibu Classic (8th letter of VIN is "F") with the 2.2 Ecotech 4-cylinder engine has a fuel filter between the fuel tank and the rear axle. One end of the filter has a threaded connector and the other is a typical compression style. Regarding the antitheft system, if that is the problem I recommend that you contact an autoelectric repair shop and get them involved as they have the diagnostic tools and the wiring diagrams to get to the bottom of these complex devices.

Thank you for using fixya and if you are going to replace the fuel pump your self. Make sure you also replace the wire harness from the frame to the fuel pump.

    Fig. Fuel filter mounting location and component identification
The fuel strainer attaches to the lower end of the fuel pump module. The fuel strainer is made of woven plastic. The functions of the fuel strainer are to filter contaminants and to wick fuel. The fuel strainer normally requires no maintenance. Fuel stoppage at this point indicates that the fuel tank contains an abnormal amount of sediment or contamination.

Hope help with this (remember rated and comment this help)..

How to change fuel filter on 2000 chevy malibu


the fuel filter is located just in front of fuel tank. relieve fuel pressure, you can do this by removing fuel pump fuse and running engine until it quits, or you can relieve pressure by shraider valve in engine compartment. squeeze the white plastic disconnect tabs together and pull the inlet line away from filter, then detach the outlet line from the filter, then unbolt the filter mounting bracket to remove fuel filter.
