Or you could de-pressurize the fuel rail first. In the engine compartment, pull the fuel injection fuse. Crank car over for a few seconds. Remove key. Open gas cap to relieve pressure there. Now do the filter replacement, IF you have the tools to reach everything and flare wrenches to undo the banjo bolts (without rounding them off).

Hi,

You need to release the fuel connection on one side slowly because it is under pressure and the fuel will gush out very quickly.
Also make sure that your engine is cold before you do this because the fuel will explode if the engine is to hot.

Where is fuel filter located 2004 toyota tacoma extra cab prerunner?


If it's a V-6 engine the filter is located underneath the driver's side just inside where the frame is, on the 4 cylinder it's located under the intake manifold near the front of the engine.

Where fuel filter located Toyota 2004 tacoma xtra cab Prerunner?


The fuel filter is underneath the intake plenum on the left side of the engine. To access it, you don't need to take off the intake or remove the starter like some have recommended. Take off the driver side front tire and access it through the wheel well. You may need to take off some plastic mud flaps and whatnot, but when I did this, it was a piece of cake. Make sure before you take off the banjo fittings on both sides of the fuel filter that you release the fuel pressure in the lines(take off the fuel cap).

Location of the fuel filter on 2000 toyota tacoma 2 wd std cab


Oil filter on a 2000 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner with 6 cylinder IS a screw on filter located on the drivers side front of the engine (just beneath the alternator).

Can't recall the size but, you need a socket with extension to get to the bolts holding the skid pan then, wiggle/lift it from it's hooks. Then, you can either cuss, cuss, cuss while removing the old and installing the new OR, jack the drivers side up 4 to 6 inches ( gives you a bit more wiggle room and keeps you from scraping your elbow to the bone on whatever surface you're working on).

Even then, be ready for a good cussing bout because there still isn't much room.

In the engine bay, on the firewall, behind the engine if it's a 2.7L I4. It'll be tricky to change due to space constraints.

It's probably not the fuel filter. I would suggest replacement sparkplugs, and wires, since you did not nmention these items. Also, use plugs from a Toyota parts dept. If you use anything else, it won't run properly.

the trans should be serviced if it is an automatic (fluid and filter), the fuel filter should be changed ( a restricted filter can ruin the fuel pump in the tank), the air filter should be changed, make sure the chassis lubed if it has lube zerks. Clean or replace the PCV valve.

I don't know if your truck uses this method but several vehicles I have owned would turn on the electric cooling fan to combat the natural temperature rise that occurs in the engine once the coolant is not circulating anymore.
This prevents hard starting in a hot engine and if the thermostatic switch fails that controls the fan, the cooling (and turn-on) doesn't happen.
This may be your problem.
