The first thing to do is make sure you have clean coolant. It may be time to flush it. Replace the thermostat, if it is stuck closed the car will overheat becuse the coolant is not able to cycle through the radiator. The best way to find the thermostat is follow the large hose from the top of the radiator to the top of the engine. You will see it attach to a round housing with a nipple going inside the radiator hose.

SOURCE: Where is the Fuel Filter

The fuel filter is located under the car on the passenger side right in front of the passenger rear wheel.

Remove the plastic retainers that hold the fuel line to the fuel filter. They will break but the new filter will come with new ones. Pay attention to how the old clips are positioned in the fuel line. They only work one way.

The fuel line will be under pressure. Wrap the line with a rag before pulling off to prevent fuel from spraying all over.

Once the lines are disconnected loosen the clamp with a 5/16 socket.

An extremely plugged fuel filter will usually cause a poor acceleration symptom. It is rare for this to occur so a new fuel filter may not solve the problem but is not a bad idea.

If you can describe the symptom with a little more detail I would be happy to help you further or present some other possibilities.

Also, is the check engine light on? If it is do you know what codes are present?

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at
