It's located behind the passenger side rear wheel and looks like a round silver canister. When you buy the new one, you will know exactly what you're looking for. I takes about 10 to 15 minutes to change. Just jack up the rear end and put a drip pan on the ground for any overflow when you take it off, then pop on the new one. They should be changed on an average of every 10 to 15,000 miles.

Peace,

Chief

Hi there!

It's located on the passenger side of the car in front of the rear tire.
Change it in the morning, after the car has stood overnight as it will be under pressure otherwise, and need to be depressurised.
Have a bowl and rags handy to catch spilled fuel during this operation.

You will need a Spanner to remove the bolt holding the filter and pliers and/or a screwdriver to remove the hose clamps from the filter.
Remove the bolt and then remove the hose clamps. Slowly pull the hoses off the filter. Dispose of the used filter properly. Then reverse the steps to put on the new filter

If this proves useful, Please spare a moment to rate it as Fixya! Thanks.

I just replace the fuel pump,filter and carburator on my 1983 plymouth reliant.it will turn over and start but wont say started what could be the problem


Possible float is sticking in carb. Tap side of float bowl with screwdriver and see if that helps. If not, I suggest checking the float level and make sure it is adjusted at the right height.

My 88 plymouth reliant has just stopped working. I have changed the spark plugs, wires, fuel pump, and fuel pump relay. i've also changed the fuel filter twice now. i've checked to see if it has spark and...


Check the ignition timing is correct. I see that you have changed the wires so I suggest that you recheck the firing order for the plugs as it is easy to get it wrong when replacing the leads.

My 1988 Plymouth Reliant has a skip in it, when I press the accelerator, it drives smooth and then randomly skips


If tune-up, (plugs and wires) fuel filter changed, throttle body cleaned etc, hasn't been done in a while, that would be a good place to start.

89 reliant plymouth car stall out


You're right; It sounds like fuel delivery, but start with the simplest suspects first.
Change the fuel filter(s) first, and if this doesn't get it, go for the fuel pump.

Car cuts out seems like its not getting gas,,,changed filter near carbuator, run for 2 days then same problem


most probably a buildup of junk in the tank that is clogging the fuel filter, try changing it again and pull the old one apart to see if there is stuff in it.

Changing my fuel filter in my 1988 Plymouth


You'll can

But you'll have to plug the line very fast. with the pressure and volume of a full tank it makes that simple job a bit more of a task.

When you remove the rubber line from the nozzle of the fuel filter have a stemming plug or bolt handy to quickly insert to seal the flow from the line coming from the tank.

If you can either drain the tank via manual or electronic siphon or run some of that fuel out. Before taking that on or you're going to spill an yet to be determined amount of fuel.

NO FUEL GETTING TO ENGINE


It might be your fuel injectors clogged maybe.

Yeah, The fuel filter for a 2.2L plymouth reliant Le is on the passenger side just before the rear tire. Its like right next to the gas tank. Sort of in by the middle (not by the body frame). Hope this helps.
