At the rear of the car near the gas tank, you'll find the fuel filter. Simply unscrew it and screw on the new filter. Relieve the fuel pressure before removing the old filter. To do this, remove the gas cap and at the engine you'll find the schrader valve on the fuel rail, press it. The schrader valve is found on the fuel rail.

Not hard. It is located in front of the right front wheel. Be sure you new filter comes with new clips. All you need is a flat blade screwdriver and a pan to catch the gas that will run out.

You prime it at the lifter pump on the drivers side the primer is a black rubber push button type. you shouldn't have to crack any injector lines if you do you can risk damaging the lines or their ability to seal. good luck

There is actually a warm cold sensor that tells the choke when to go on or off. You will need to find it and replace that. Ask the auto parts store and they can give you the actual name of it and you can look at it so you know what you are changing out. The best I can do for you on this one my friend. Let me know if it helped or hendered you. Raz

Follow the steps care fully

Open the hood and relieve the fuel system pressure. On the fuel rail, right before the first fuel injector, locate the Schrader valve-similar to a tire air valve-on the inlet fuel line. Using a small screwdriver, depress the stem inside the valve while covering the valve with a shop rag to catch the squirt of fuel.

Raise the back of the vehicle using a floor jack and support it safely on jack stands.

Locate the fuel filter along the frame rail-passenger side-of the vehicle, near the fuel tank.

Unplug the quick-connect fuel inlet line on the back of the filter by pressing the lock tabs. Push the connector towards the filter and then pull to disconnect the fuel supply line.

Disconnect the outlet fuel line from the filter-the line going toward the engine-by using a backup wrench to hold the line nut while disconnecting the lock nut on the filter with a tube wrench.

Remove the filter from its mounting bracket and install the new filter in place, making sure the arrow on the side of the filter case points toward the engine.

Install the outlet fuel line. Tight the lock nut finger tight, then hold the fuel line nut with the backup wrench and tight the lock nut with the tube wrench. Make sure not to over tighten the nut to prevent fuel leaks.

Press the fuel supply line fitting against the small tube at the back of the filter until the lock tabs snap in place.

Lower the vehicle, start the engine and check for leaks.

We have a 97 chevy lumina that had water in the gas and we need to know where the fuel pump reset button is


There is no reset button for an overload situation on the fuel pump. The only reset is for when the vehicle gets into an accident, which activates on impact. So, I don't think this is what you are looking for. I would suggest looking at the fuse panel, which would be located in the engine compartment and it should be labeled. If this is not your problem, then you probably have a problem with the fuel pump itself or the fuel filter is plugged with water. The fuel filters do not like water, so by purging the gas through the bleeder valve you will be putting all that water into the fuel filter. I would suggest removing the fuel filter and purge the fuel/water at that location. You should replace the filter anyway, so I would remove it and see if the pump still works.

I would also suggest putting a couple of bottles of "Heat" or similar products in the tank, because you will not be able to get everything out.

Good luck....
