How do I replace the fuel filter on a Chrysler 1997 town and country 3.8 lxi


  • Relieve the fuel system pressure by removing the fuel pump relay from the power distribution center. Start the engine and allow it to run until it stalls. Try to start it again and let it run until it stalls. Repeat this procedure until it no longer will start. Turn the ignition off.
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable and raise the vehicle. Support the fuel tank with a transmission jack. Locate the fuel filter on the top of your Chrysler Town & Country fuel tank.
  • Remove the fuel line from the front of the tank and then the ground strap. Next, remove the inboard side of the fuel tank straps and front T-strap fastener. Lower the tank about 6 inches.
  • Detach the fuel lines from the fuel pump module and then remove the fuel filter. Put the new filter in its place. Tighten the fuel filter bolts to 40 inch pounds.
  • Reconnect the fuel lines to the fuel pump module and reposition the tank. Replace the front T strap fastener and tighten it to 250 inch pounds. Put the inboard fuel tank straps back and tighten them to 40 foot pounds.
  • Put on the ground strap and connect the fuel line in the front of the tank. Start the engine of your Town & Country and check for leaks.

    What is the best way to take off a gas tank on a 91 jeep comanche to replace it, and also how do you get the fuel pump out of the gas tank?


    Put the truck on service ramps or a lift. Pump out any fuel in the tank. Remove the plastic cover from the tank straps, 10mm socket. Unhook filler and vent hoses. Unhook fuel lines, electrical wires and vacuum lines at the T connector.
    Support the tank with a jack and loosen the strap nuts with a 15 mm wrench, then lift the strap hooks out of the notch in the frame. Once loose, work the tank out. Dropping the drive shaft would make it easier.
