SIMPLE MAINT SCHEDULE , IS CHANGING IT ONCE A YEAR, but it depends where you live, If this truck is a diesel & you live in a northern climate, change your filter once a year but not until you know for ceretain that you are buying winter grade fuel, ie: nov
Reason for this is that there will be wax/parafin build up in the filter that your ran on the summer fuel, it can congeal in the filter in winter becasue of this build up. If you replace the filter in late autumn, then tat filter will not have a congeal problem because the there hasnt been anything but winter grade fuel through it, , and its safe to run all next summer , but the summers residue will cause problems next winter , so change again in late autumn .

What could cause the engine not to stay running after the fuel filter was replaced? Even after fuel pump was replaced?


From remote site, it is hard to tell what is the root cause, and change pump was done in proper order -- you should post the problem before replacing fuel pump.
Here is what I will do, assume you can do a little by yourself.
Changing fuel filter should be easy by disconnect fuel hose (pipe) from the fuel filter . Since ASE mechanic did job in your house, I assume the old fuel filter is still in your hand. Change it back (replace new filter with your older one) to see if your car will work as before. This supposed to be done before replacing the fuel pump.
If older filter works, then you knew the new filter is the root cause. This could be resolved by replacing another new filter. If the problem appear again, leave the new filter in for over night to see if the new filter will work on the next day (you could use exiting new filter to avoid buying another filter, unless you will get a different brand one). If not, the choice is to use older one for a while when trying figure why new filter does not work.

If old filter does not wok either, then something is in forwarding fuel line between fuel filter and fuel ejection system. Then, that section needs to be cleaned. Assume the pressure is measured at connection between forwarding line and fuel filter.

Fuel pump needs to be replaces on 2000 Chevrolet suburban, do I also need a new filter, relay and induction?


Do you know for sure that the fuel pump failed or do you have a bad relay? If the fuel pump relay is good no you don't need to replace it. The fuel pump unit comes with the sending unit and a sock filter. I would replace the inline fuel filter when you replace the pump. In line fuel filters need to be replaced every 36000 miles. If that filter starts to plug up it makes the pump work harder which leads to premature failure.

Replace Fuel Filter on 2006 Chevy Aveo Hatchback


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.

I need to replace my fuel filter. need to know where it is and what i need to do to access it.


Hi,

Regarding Fuel Filter - Under vehicle, driver side, below seating area, front of fuel tank, mounted on chassis in fuel line.

A device located in the fuel line to remove impurities from the fuel before it enters the carburetor or injector system.

INSPECTION

Fuel filters can be located in a fuel line, in the tank, in a carburetor, or in any combination of these. A carburetor often has a filter behind the fitting at its fuel inlet.

An external fule filter. Courtesy of General Motors Corporation, Service Technology Group. Engine heat causes fuel to vaporize, which can result in vapor lock in the filter. Some fuel filters have vapor return lines to allow for expanding vapors and fuel to return to the tank.

REPLACE

Fuel filters and elements are serviced by replacement only. Some vehicle manufacturers recommend fuel filter replacement at 30,000 miles (48,000 km). Always replace the fuel filter at the vehicle manufacturer's recommended mileage.
The fuel filter replacement procedure varies depending on the make and year of the vehicle and the type of fuel system. Always follow the filter replacement procedure in the appropriate service manual. The photo sequence below shows a typical procedure for relieving fuel pressure and removing a fuel filter.
