For locating the fuel filter look under the car, its just below the back drivers side door, you will see the filter there, its black if its factory and it has three hoses coming off it, basically, find the gas tank and work your way to the front of the car following the lines and you will find the fuel filter. Right by the tire more or less. Try the left side (drivers side) near the rear wheel by gas tank just after the rear door.

60,000 miles or 60 months to replace. Its fairly large and you can see the fuel lines going in and out of it. One nice thing it has snap fittings which makes change over easy.

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation

the fuel filter is located in front of the rear wheel well on the fuel line. if you put the car on jack stands it is fairly easy to see. if you need any info on removal and installation dont hesitate to comment back.

I have a 2003 kia rio runs great hesatates slighty on take off what could it be

You didn't mention the mileage, but you should consult the owners manual & see if any tune-up maintenance may be due. Additionally, the air filter, fuel filter, fuel injectors, spark plugs as well as a few other items can cause hesitation on acceleration.

If there are no engine warning lights, you could also try a little fuel injector cleaner (available at your local auto parts store & most larger auto departments of places like Walmart) I always get the 3.00 a bottle gumout cleaner, use 1 bottle for a 1/2 tank, repeat in about a week & see if that doesn't help. good luck
