The fuel filter is right outside the fuel tank in line with the fuel system in front of the tank and you need a special tool to release the clamps at auto zone for around 15 bucks and should take about 30 minutes to change and pretty simple job dont need to jack up the car or anything

How often should we change fuel filter for Nissan Teana


hi Drkmaniir.
Changing out your car's fuel filter may not be at the top of your routine auto maintenance list like oil changes and tire rotations. Heck, you may not even know what a fuel filter is.
But mechanics say periodically replacing fuel filters is a good idea because it helps keep your fuel pump and engine running smoothly.
The fuel pump is designed to catch particles, debris or impurities in the gas tank before the fuel reaches the pump, to ensure only clean gasoline reaches your engine.
"They get overlooked a lot and then can go unchanged for quite awhile with no problem," says Frank Satriano, owner of Coachman Automotive in Clearwater, Florida. "Some cars have them in the gas tank and never get serviced, so it just depends on the car and what the manufacturer recommends."

It's important to note that many newer vehicles come with a non-serviceable filter located in the fuel tank, so you'll want to check your owner's manual to see whether it needs to be replaced.

Why you should replace your fuel filter

Like any filter, debris will clog it up over time. This causes the fuel pump to work harder, which can in turn lead to it breaking down. Engines can also be damaged from contaminated fuel.
"Today's vehicles are equipped with more state-of-the-art fuel injectors, which have very tight clearances," says Katy Kreitzer, service manager of Kreitzer's Automotive Service in Enola, Pennsylvania. "If debris enters the fuel injector, it can clog the fuel passages and damage the injector. This may also result in a dripping of fuel instead of a fine spray mist that is required for efficient combustion."
According to Ford Motor Co., you may want to think about changing the filter if the car is difficult to start, idles rough or stalls, has sluggish acceleration, decreased fuel economy or has a tank of bad gas.

"Thirty thousand miles is a good idea for a ballpark interval."Bob Waeiss, owner of Integrity Automotive in Carmel, Indiana, says the old best practice would be to replace the filter every 30,000 miles but that's no longer the norm, he says."As clean as most fuels are today, you could push that off to 60,000 or 90,000 miles," Waeiss says. "Replacing a fuel filter for the first time at or above 100,000 miles may cause a fuel pump failure. Not sure why, other than over time the filter becomes restricted and the pump has to work harder to push the fuel through the line. When a new filter is installed, the pump can't handle the free flow, and it stops pumping."

However, Kreitzer says prices for a new fuel filter typically costs between $100 and $150, which includes parts and labor.According to Auto Service Costs, the average cost for a mechanic to install a new fuel filter is between $53 and $165, while ordering the part itself can cost around $14 to $60.

2002 kia sedona, can you replace the fuel filter without replacing the fuel pump


the fuel filter is inline with the fuel line in front of the fuel tank. Inside the tank is a sock that filters the fuel in the suction pipe to the fuel pump also That sock filter is always replaced upon replacing the pump only.

If the fuel filter is mounted inside the fuel tank at the pump it does not need replacing and is a permanent filter. All you have to do it follow the fuel lines from the fuel tank to the engine. If the filter is mounted in the fuel line you will find it.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 1997 contour gl


Fuel filter replacement for the 1995-1997, 1998 Ford Contour (4 Cyl 'Zetec' 16V and 24v Duratech V6) Fuel filter is located under the passenger side of the car in front of the rear wheel. Time: 5-10 min Tool needed: One flat head screwdriver Replace this filter is fairly easy. First, have a replacment filter and absorbent material as this will spill some gas. Suggestion: Remove black caps from new fuel filter. Have those handy when removing old filter. You can use them to cap the gas that will flow out of the old fuel filter, thus saving you a small mess. Also, take a good look at how the old fuel filter looks attached. Replace the new fuel filter with the same side (IN-OUT) The fuel filter is attached via a simple screw cable. Unscrew the cable to loosen the fuel filter (It will not detach by itself). Give it enough slack to pull out once you are ready. Next ,using screwdriver, pop-off white plastic retaining clips. Remove front and rear fuel line. Replace with new filter. Connect fuel lines. Connect white retaining clips on both sides (There will be some play on the connection, but that's normal). Screw the screw cable so filter is connected firmly (Do not overtighten and make sure screw nut is visible so you can see it the next time you need to replace filter. Double check your connections. Turn the ignition to ON for 5 seconds - but do not turn the car on. This will allow the fuel pump to push gas through the filter. Turn ignition OFF. Check to see if there is leakage. If no, turn car's motor ON.
