You need a fuel line disconnect tool set, sold at most autoparts stores for about $10. If you know the size of the line, you can get them single for a couple of bucks.
I believe the grey one is the one you need.

1993 Laredo. Does it have two fuel filters?

are you on wrong forum, Grand cherokee is it?
the XJ jeep is not a ZJ jeep. which is it, the big GRAND ZJ?
what a great question, actually cars with EFI all have 3 filters...
sorry to shock you.

1: the fuel sock , below the pump , to catch loose golf balls. LOL.
dead bugs, etc.
2: the pump output line has a filter., all do, can be in tank (newer cars) or just outside (did you look first or post first) bingo!
3: then each injector has 10 micron size screens. the above keeps these clean, saving $120 for injector service and labor R&R.

and what engine, not posted engine size on engine questions
the fuel system matches ENGINE type, on all cars made.
4.0L engine ????

ive owned both a grand laredo and not grand laredo 1988 to 2010

if not grand see this XJ car.
called just a Cherokee here. 1993

the grand is called a ZJ
also on same page and both are LAREDO's

the book has a fuel chapter.

I have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. The vehicle has a severe hesitation when I step on the gas pedal. It feels like the vehicle is starving for fuel. I changed the gas cap and fuel filter. Any...

You didn't mention which engine you have but on an inline six, a failed fuel pressure regulator caused this symptom on ours.
It is at the front end of the fuel rail and cost ~$40 to procure.

Where is the fuel filter located, ona 99 jeep grand cherokee?


There are 2 filters.
  1. One is on the end of the pickup tube inside of the gas tank.
  2. The second is in-line, above the front edge of the gas tank, inboard of the frame member. It is part of the fuel regulator/filter assembly.

Here's a diagram:

Take care.

I have a 97 jeep grand cherokee laredo and it is back firing out of the throttle body like it's not getting enough gas. Could you help me out.

Check all the vacuum hoses on the intake manifold for a leak. Replace all broken and cracked lines. Check from the coil to spark plug wires with an inline spark tester for fire. Check the spark plugs for fouling and cracked terminals. Inspect the spark plug wires for worn or cracks. If you can check the fuel pressure to the throttle body. Also look at the air filter. Hope this will help you.
