How do you change the fuel filter on a 96 Olds Cutlass Supreme 4 door 3.1 V6? Vin#1G3WH52M8TF372414


Fuel filters are easy to replace but let me give you some friendly warnings:

CAUTION. To reducethe risk of fire and personal injury always follow the correct procedure for disconnecting and connecting fuel pipe quick connect fittings. This will ensure good connections and prevent possible fuel leaks.

CAUTION. Safety glasses must be worn if you use compressed air, as flying dirt prticles may cause eye injury.


The fuel filter is no longer serviced in regular maintenande intervals. It is only necessary to replace the fuel filter in the case of damage or a clogged filter.

Before replacing a fuel filter it is necessary to relieve fuel system pressure.

Your fuel filter is located under the vehicle, driver side, below seating area, front of fuel tank, mounted on frame rail in fuel line

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.

fps23-03.jpg Wrap a shop towel around the Schrader valve on the fuel rail and remove the dust cap from the valve.

fps23-04.jpg Connect the fuel pressure gauge to the Schrader valve.

fps23-05.jpg Install the free end of the gauge bleed hose into an approved gasoline container, and open the gauge bleed valve to relieve the fuel pressure.

fps23-06.jpg Place the vehicle on the hoist and position the lift arms according to manufacturer's recommendations. Then raise the vehicle.

fps23-07.jpg Flush the fuel filter line connectors with water, and use compressed air to blow debris off and away from the connectors.

Follow the recommended procedures for disconnecting the fuel outlet connector, then remove the fuel filter.

Installing Fuel Filters
In-line fuel filters are installed in the fuel line. In carbureted engines, the in-line gasoline filter is usually installed between the fuel pump and the carburetor. In vehicles with a fuel injection system, the location of the fuel filter is determined by the manufacturer. An arrow on the filter shows the direction of fuel flow.
  • To install a new filter, begin by wiping the male tube ends of the new filter with a clean shop towel.
  • Apply a few drops of clean engine oil to the male tube ends on the filter.
  • Check the quick connectors to be sure the large collar on each connector has rotated back to the original position. The springs must be visible on the inside diameter of each quick connector.
  • Then install the filter in the proper direction and leave the mounting bolt slightly loose.
  • Install the outlet connector onto the filter outlet tube and press the connector firmly in place until the spring snaps into position.
  • Grasp the fuel line and try to pull this line from the filter to be sure the quick connector is locked in place.
  • Then, do the same with the inlet connector.
  • Now tighten the filter retaining bolt to the specified torque.
  • Once everything is connected, lower the vehicle, start the engine, and check for fuel leaks at the filter.
Have fun and all the best

  4. Install new retainer clips in each connect fitting.
  5. Remove fuel filter by pulling fuel filter toward center line of vehicle and free from fuel filter bracket. NOTE: The flow arrow direction should be positioned forward and downward to make sure of proper fuel flow through replacement fuel filter.



  1. Install fuel filter in fuel filter bracket, ensuring proper direction of flow.
  2. Install push connect fittings at both ends of fuel filter.
  3. Lower vehicle.
  4. Start engine and inspect for leaks.

Change the fuel filter

The fuel filter will be located above the fuel tank. You will need to remove the front fuel tank strap to change the filter. Make sure you relieve fuel pressure before removing the lines otherwise gas could potentially spray everywhere including all over you! Remove the two lines from the filter (sometimes there is just one) remove the bolt that secures the filter to the tank. Remove the line from the filter to the metal fuel line.

After you install the new one make sure the connection is solid where the plastic line from the filter connects to the metal line. This connection is the one that fails quite often after the filters are replaced!!

Chevrolet suburban C2500 fuel filter replacement steps

First thing, find your fuel filter (drivers side frame rail, about center in the truck...looks like a metal can in the middle of a metal line) and clean the exterior and the area around it so you don't get particulate matter into the new one or the line. Next, pull the fuel pump relay and start the engine. It will die, but it depressurizes the fuel line. Turn everything off, replace the relay, and you can proceed to remove the fuel filter with a couple of wrenches. On occasion, you'll find one with a different type of connector, so make sure you know how to release anything different before you start. Put the new one on, and turn on the ignition switch to run, (don't start it yet) then off, and repeat a couple of times to prime and pressurize it again. Then start, and check for leaks.

Change Fuel Filter on 2001 F150 Pickup

Hi, I've done this on my F-150 before. You will need a special removal tool to do the job right, it doesn't cost very much. The hardest part for me was getting the filter out of the bracket on the fuel rail.

This article helped me...

The gas filter is located passenger side just forward of the rear axle. The band that holds the gas filter in place is a pinch band that has a nut welded/formed into it on the back/top side. A 12 mm bolt holds the band in place. The top of the band has a bracket that hold the return fuel line - this just pops off and the return fuel line can be reattached once the filter has been replaced. If your filter has never been replaced there is masking tape covering the pinch connections at both ends of the filter. Remove the masking tape. You need to put a pan under the old filter to catch any gas spillage - it will be minimal. Also the new filter comes with plastic caps on the ends of the new filter - you will want to use them to plug the old filter connectors so you need to take them off the new filter to have handy. Ther is a T off the inlet gas line that has a cap on it - remove the cap and press the needle in the T to relieve any pressure that is on the gas line - If it has been setting for an hour there will probably be very little if any pressure on the line. You can skip messing with the T and you will see about an ounce of fuel that will come out of the filter when you remove the hose.

To remove the connectors push the connector ring away from the filter housing. (I did the front first because I had more room). I used a paint can opener to help pry the hose away from the filter - it is shaped like a can opener but without a cutting edge - a large flat screwdriver would perform as well. It is a tight fit but once it starts to move it will come off. Once the hose is off use the plastic caps you took off the new filter to help hold the gas in the old filter. After removing both ends remove the holding band and place it on the new filter. The two lines will go back on easier than they came off, just push them onto the filters nipples. Put the 12 mm OR 10MM bolt back into the pinch band and reintall the return fuel line. Wipe any stray fluids and your done.

Good Luck.
