Sorry I'm not a car expert, but I imagine its a pretty simple task, my father has worked in cars all hes life - but I don't want to bother hes vacation with car problems for a while.

well read here

You can ask another expert make sure one has cars labeled in the expertise field or contact a local tech if you can't get it fixed yourself.

again, I imagine its a simple process but I've never yet done one.

I have a 1999 gmc 3500 crew dually with a 454 engine in it. This week it started running rough and idling funnny. Could this be the fuel filter or something else?

The fuel filter may need to be replaced, but wont fix the problem you have. Its just a maintenance item that should be done every 15k miles anyhow. Check it over, check the large hose between the air filter and the engine make sure its secure. see if all hoses are ok, if you see/hear a vacuum leak. If all looks ok, time to have it checked by a shop.

95 camry fuel filter leaking

Hi. Welcome to FixYa. Let me try to help. First, remove the fuel filter from the fuel line, and look REAL CLOSE at the threads on the fuel line; see if they are "damaged" in ANY way, If so, your filter will never seal. If the threads are indeed damaged, you will have to replace the fuel line back to the tank. This is a quite common problem, I see this very often in my shop.

Gas line is leaking very close to tank. The leak is at the joint where the metal pipe coming from tank meets a rubber hose that runs to filter. It seems to be leaking right at this joint which seems to...

You want to be very careful not to make any sparks while working on this. The obvious is smoking, banging metal tools around, etc. keep cell phones AWAY from the area. Pick up some rubber fuel line from the parts store. Be prepared for some gas leakage, have a plastic pan under the leak. Disconnect the line at the tank, have a piece of new hose ready to push on over the line to as close to the tank as you can, have the end away from the tank plugged up temporarily with a pencil or something that fits snug in it, then remove the rubber hose on the filter, and connect new line from tank to filter, check for leaks, hopefully it is the rubber line you replaced, or the end of the metal line, so the new hose will hopefully cover the corroded leaking area. Clamp and Dry off area and see if you can spot any leaks.
