Put system cleanser in your tank to remove some build up. That should help.

Also get a tune up so it runs more smoothly.

Fuel filter


fuel filter should be in front of left rear wheel. before changing be sure to relieve fuel pressure. if you take out the relay or fuse to fuel pump, then just start engine until it dies out. that will relieve the pressure in the lines. if in doubt go to any auto parts store and they should be able to tell you where it is. have a good day !! there is also a relief valve on top of engine for relieving the pressure.

Honda Civic Coupe. Year 2000 1.6. How can I depressurize the fuel system easily to change the fuel filter situated in the engine compartment.


Hi,

IMPORTANT: Do not skip the fuel system pressure release step. Injury and other damage can result!
Safety Step! Relieving Fuel System Pressure
· allow engine to cool
· relieve fuel system pressure
· put on your eye protection
Before you begin the job of replacing your fuel filter, you must relieve the pressure in your fuel system. A fuel injection system operates under very high pressure. If you don't release this pressure before you start unscrewing fuel lines the result can be explosive. Do this before you attempt to change the fuel filter.
To release the pressure in your fuel lines (and fuel filter) you'll need to locate the fuel pump fuse in the fuse box. If you don't have a fuel pump fuse, find the relay that operates the fuel pump. Once you've found the fuel pump fuse or relay, start the car. With the engine running, pull the fuse or relay out. If you pulled the right one, the engine will quickly die. Since it's using all of the pressurized fuel in the system, the fuel lines won't be pressurized when you crack the fittings on your fuel filter.
Now that you've relieved the fuel pressure you can remove the old fuel filter.
If you didn't do this yet, you must go to the previous step and do it. Very dangerous!

Best regards.

Do i need to relieve fuel pressure before replacing fuel pressure regulator on a 03 chev malibu?


yes it's under pressure can can do it by starting the car pull the fuel pump fuse and allow it to die try and restart the car a couple times with the fuse removed after that the pressure should be relieved. if you have a fuel pressure gauge you can do it by connecting it to the strader valve and relieving it that way also

Is fuel system pressurized when not running to change fuel filter


Yes, there is still pressure in the fuel lines even when the vehicle is not running. You can relieve the pressure by depressing the valve on the fuel line in the hood compartment. Be sure to use a rag. Also, take off your fuel cap to relieve additional pressure in the system.
