Under the hood right behind the battery. Undo the clips on that black plastic box and the filter is right there. There is also a cabin air filter behind the lower glove box.

When you change the filter, you shouldn't have a problem with the hoses or tubes.

My kid has a 1998 Toyota Foreunner, 118,000 miles. Had the oil changed at local quickie oil change place who also checked the air filter. Now, it stalls intermittantly after starting. Check engine light...


First look along air intake tubes, be sure no sensors were unplugged or pulled out of place. Lean codes are usually air mix related. i.e. mass air flow or air temp sensor. also look over all plastic vacuum tubes, be sure none are broken. listen for a hissing sound.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 1994 dodge ram


Fuel Filter REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CAUTION
Never smoke when working around gasoline! Avoid all sources of sparks or ignition. Gasoline vapors are EXTREMELY volatile! All 1989–93 Gasoline Engines and 1994–96 2.5L Engines The fuel filter is located in the fuel line on the inside of the left frame rail, just ahead of the crossmember. Fig. 1: Fuel filter location for gasoline engines 88471011.gif
  1. Relieve the fuel system pressure as described in Section 5.
  2. Unfasten the filter retaining screw and remove the filter from the frame rail.
  3. Wrap a shop towel around the hose connections to catch fuel spillage. Loosen the fuel hose clamps and disconnect the hoses from the filter.
  4. Remove the old fuel filter and replace it with a new one.
  5. Connect the fuel hoses and tighten the hose clamps. Position the filter on the frame rail and tighten the retaining screw to 75 inch lbs. (8 Nm).
1994–96 Gasoline Engines — Except 2.5L The fuel filter is integrated into the fuel pressure regulator which is mounted in the fuel tank. This unit is not controlled by the PCM or engine vacuum. It is calibrated to deliver approximately 35–45 psi (241–310 kPa) of fuel pressure to the injectors. If the pressure exceeds the maximum of the specified range, an internal diaphragm closes to route fuel back into the fuel tank. This system eliminates the need for conventional return lines from the engine bay and accounts for the name of the "Returnless'' fuel injection system employed in these vehicles. NOTE: Fuel tank removal is required for this procedure. Also needed will be external snapring pliers and proper hose clamp pliers, such as No. C-4124 pliers (available through Plymouth/Dodge dealers), or equivalent.
  1. Relieve the fuel system pressure as described in Section 5. Fig. 2: With the fuel tank removed, twist and pull the fuel filter/regulator for removal from the rubber mounting grommet 88471707.gif

  2. Drain the fuel tank and remove the tank.
  3. Remove the fuel filter/regulator (which is pressed into a rubber grommet) by twisting and pulling it straight up. Fig. 3: Use snapring pliers to remove the retainer securing the cover tube to the base of the filter/regulator 88471708.gif

  4. Remove the snapring retaining the cover tube, then slide it down to reveal the clear plastic fuel tube and its retaining clamp. Fig. 4: Cut off the old tube clamp without damaging the plastic fuel tube 88471709.gif

  5. Gently cut off the old clamp without damaging the tube, then discard the clamp.
  6. Carefully pull the tube off, then remove the filter/regulator from the fuel pump module. To install:
  7. Install a new clamp over the plastic fuel tube and attach it loosely to the filter/regulator. Rotate the unit in the line until it is pointed to the driver's side of the vehicle.
  8. Tighten the clamp using hose clamp pliers such as No. C-4124 (available through the Plymouth/Dodge dealer). NOTE: Do not use conventional side cutters to tighten the clamp.
  9. Slide the cover tube up to the bottom of the filter/regulator and install the snapring.
  10. Carefully press the assembly back into the rubber grommet by hand. It should be pointed to the driver's side of the vehicle.
  11. Install the fuel tank.

Get engine air filter out and install new.


Step 1 Unfasten wire harness to MAF (massive air flow) sensor located on top of the black tube leading from the air box to the plenum.
  • Step 2 Unplug the vacuum line located on top of the black tube. This simply pops in and out so you might need to be forceful, but apply common sense since it's a plastic vacuum line.
  • Step 3 Loosen band clamp with the screw driver at the top of the black tube that is attached to the aluminum air chamber that run to the plenum. Also, loosen the other band clamp located at the bottom of the tube closest to the air box. The idea is to remove this tube with the MAF sensor intact in between. Do not remove the band clamps, simply loosen them enough to wiggle off the tube and move it out of the way.
  • Step 4 Unclip both fasteners at the top of the air box and pull out and up to remove air box cover. Remove old air filtermag-glass_10x10.gif and if there's a good deal of dust and debris inside the air box, you could wipe it out with a rag or even vacuum it out with a shop vacuum.
  • Step 5 Insert new filter and replace air box cover. Make sure the retaining tabs are locked in at the bottom correctly. Refasten top locking clips to air box cover.
  • Step 6 Reinstall air tube making sure to replace top part back on correctly to aluminum air chamber. Not properly reinstalling this air tube will result in the computer of the car throwing a check engine code. On the bottom of the black air tube is a small tab and if tube is replaced properly should line up in a notch molded into the air box cover. Tighten band clamps with screw driver and reconnect wire harness and plug plastic vacuum line back in.

    Po446 only code that came up. Hoses are all attached 2002 Toyotal Highlander


    i have an 03 highlander...i don't know if this matches your problem or not but when my air filter cover is lifted in order to check or change the air filter, it can lift a small black hose off the metal tubing that it is attached to (down behind the air filter housing...about 1 to 2 feet down). If this hose becomes detached, after some starts, the check engine light comes on. I think this is part of the emissions recirculation or something to that effect...I'm sorry...I am not mechanically oriented but I did have this particular issue as I've described. So, once I learned this, I always removed that hose from the air filter housing before lifting the top cover off the air filter housing and then always put it back once I've put the filter cover back into place. Also, when a shop does oil changes, they typically check your air filter and they usually don't know about this. I always tell them to either not check my air filter or I check the hose after they're through (I usually do anyway just to be sure). They'll pull this off and they'll never know it. You can't feel it tug when pulling the a/f cover off so you do need to check this. I don't know if the 02 Highlander is the same as the 03 in this respect but I would check behind the air filter housing and look for a small black hose and feel if it is properly connected to a metal tube that runs up from the engine below. Hope this helps.
