Fitting where, its hard to help you if you are not specific. did you mess with it? try to take it apart? Fuel leaks are not something to try to repair without proper tools.

    The fitting connects to the fuel manifold. It's a quick disconnect type of fitting. I managed to remove the fitting and locate a degraded -o- ring. Dealer and auto parts dealer say 7 -10 days to get part. Found a site to compare -o- rings and found that all -o- ring materials are compatible for use with gasoline. Plan on using -o- rings that I carry for service. I can't wait 7 days to have a running car. I also find it very irresponsible that an -o- ring was used as a seal on the fuel line that set directly above the engine manifold. Fire is most likely to occur if gas leak is not located in time. Very irresponsible GM. Any thoughts?

  • Ted Schore Sep 03, 2010

    Most all car makers use o rings,Have for 20 years, its the best seal. You just got one thats damaged/bad., plus its 9 years old. Any A/C repair place will have any o-ring that you need. Not all O-rings are fuel resistant, so make sure it doesnt swell up, soak it a few minutes in gasoline.

How do i replace my fuel filter?


The fuel filter is mounted on the frame rail. There are two types of fittings used. You only need to look at the fittings to tell the difference.

There is the plastic "hair pin" type of connector. It has a plastic connector with a plastic "hairpin" clip that pushes through the connector. Just pry the clip out with a screwdriver don't worry about breaking the clip, the new filter should come with new clips. Be careful not to break the fitting though. If you break the connector, you must replace the fuel line...not fun.

The other type is what Ford calls the "Duckbill" type of connector. I don't know wht it is called that...it doesn't look like a duck bill to me. Anyway., you can identify this one as a stainless steel connector. there is usually also a stainless steel lock clip that goes over the outside of this type of connector. The lock clip can be pried up and removed with a screwdriver. Once the lock clip is removed, a special fuel line disconnect tool must be used to releasethe spring clips inside the connector. the tool canbe purchased for a couple dollars at any parts store where you would buy your fuel filter.

You need to look at the car to determine if you need the tool or not. Both types of connectors are used for the same fuel filter. Plastic connectors - no special tool needed. Stainless steel connectors - special tool required.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 2002 Kia Sportage?


Hi there,

The fuel filter is located right below the battery to the right. If you intend changing it, here are a few steps to help. Firstly, remove the screw from the metal bracket that is holding the fuel filter. To get the quick connect fuel line fittings off, you need a disconnect tool. I got a pack of 6 at Advance Auto for $12. The small gray one fits the 2001 Sportage.

Put the plastic tool under the fuel line fitting and squeeze together. The fuel line will pop off the old filter. To remove the rear fuel line, I had to go under the vehicle and use the tool on the fuel line. There is a rubber hose with 2 quick connect fittings. One end attaches to the filter and the other end attaches to a metal fuel line under vehicle. Remove the fitting that attaches to the metal line since there is no room on the back of filter for the tool to fit. Once you get the whole assembly out of the car, you can work on getting the fitting off the rear of the old filter. Be very careful not to damage the plastic quick connect fittings!

Good luck!

Where is the fuel filter in a 1992 Cadillac Deville CP?


Generally, GM products from this era have an external canister type fuel filter near the gas tank underneath the car by the rear axle.

The following illustrates the proper procedure for changing:

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CAUTION
Never smoke when working around gasoline! Avoid all sources of sparks or ignition. Gasoline vapors are EXTREMELY volatile! WARNING
Fuel supply lines on all vehicles equipped with fuel injected engines will remain pressurized for long periods after engine shutdown. The pressure must be relieved before servicing these fuel systems.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Depressurize the fuel system.
  3. Remove the filter bracket retainer.
  4. For plastic type fittings:
    1. Grasp the filter and one fuel line fitting. Twist the quick connect fitting 1⁄4 turn in each direction to loosen any dirt within the fitting. Repeat for the other fuel line fitting.
    2. Squeeze the plastic retainer release tabs and pull the connection apart. Repeat for the other fitting.
  5. For metal type fittings:
    1. Use a fuel pipe quick-connect separator J37088 or equivalent. This is available from your local parts store.
    2. Insert the tool into the female side of the connector, then push inward to release locking tabs. Pull the connection apart. Fig. 1: There are a couple of fasteners that need to be removed to access the filter. This is one of them 91041p71.jpg
      Fig. 2: Some models utilize a plastic fitting on the fuel filter 91041p74.jpg
      Fig. 3: Twist the fuel line back and forth while holding the filter still. This will loosen any dirt caught in the connection 91041p75.jpg
      Fig. 4: Squeeze the tabs on the plastic line to free them from the lock 91041p76.jpg
      Fig. 5: Slide the hose off the front end of the filter first. It's easier to work with 91041p77.jpg
      Fig. 6: Remove the other fitting in the same manner 91041p78.jpg
      Fig. 7: After removing the fuel line from the other side, you can now slide it out of the sleeve and remove it from the vehicle 91041p73.jpg
      Fig. 8: The filter is typically attached to this bracket 91041p72.jpg
      Fig. 9: Remove the filter from this bracket before installing the new filter 91041p69.jpg
      To install:
  6. Remove the protective caps from the new filter and apply a few drops of clean engine oil to both tube ends of the filter and O-rings. Install the fuel filter so that the flow arrow follows the direction of fuel flow.
  7. Install the new plastic connector retainers onto the filter inlet and outlet tubes (plastic collar type fittings).
  8. Push the connectors together to cause the retaining tabs to snap into place. Once installed pull on both ends of each connection to make sure they are secure.
  9. Before installing the fitting on the filter, wipe the filter end with a clean cloth. Inspect the inside of the fitting to make sure it is free of dirt and/or obstructions
  10. Align the fitting, and filter axially and push the fitting onto the filter end. Pull on the fitting to make sure it is fully engaged.
  11. Install the fuel filter and bracket on the frame.
  12. Connect the negative battery cable.
  13. Start the engine and check for leaks.

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.
