The pump is an immersion type, fitted in the fuel tank. If your Liberty is a wagon, lift the carpet in the boot and on the right hand side behind the rear seat is a small metal hatch. Remove it to gain access to the fuel tank. I would advise disconnecting the battery and then unscrewing the fuel pump cover - probably disconnect to electrical plug as well..we don't want any sparks in this area do we??  You can then lift the pump out gently by turning it in various ways to remove it from this small hole. The fuel gauge float etc resides on the pump as well. You may also want to clean the little filter sock at the pickup end of the pump.  If you need to replace the pump get your wallet or credit card ready...I was quoted almost $800 aussie for a new one from Japan. Another option I have considered is to put a fuel pump in-line. See this link: http://www.nardek.com.au/fuelpumps.htm Hope this helps

Check your fuel filter. If replaced and still no help, check fuel pressure. Maybe the pump is too weak. Also check for air or vacuum leaks on vacuum hoses, and at the intake manifold mounting.

Cant find fuel filter on a 1999 subaru liberty/legacy wagon. have heard it may be in the fuel tank


There is a filter on the pump, but it rarely needs attention. The real filter is usually near the washer fluid reservoir under the hood. It is silver and is strapped to the body, with two hoses. One in, one out.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 2005 Jeep Liberty 3.7L renegade


This year and model does not have a stand alone in-line filter, the filter is on the suction side of the fuel pump inside the fuel tank and under normal conditions is only replaced when the pump is replaced (comes with the new pump). This true of all late meodel Chyrsler Products.

Fuel Filter for a 2005 Subaru Outback


In 2005 Subaru moved the fuel filters to the fuel tank for both 4-cyl and 6-cyl cars. What is confusing is the statement in the owner's manual about replacement intervals; the statement actually only applies to 4-cyl cars. Even though the filter is mounted in the tank, this is still a replaceable element on 4-cyl, but not on 6-cyl. The 6-cyl filter element is part of the entire fuel pump assembly (a $300 assembly) and is not sold separately. Therefore the 6-cyl filter is intended to be a "lifetime" part, which really means it gets replaced when the fuel pump fails and the entire pump assembly is replaced.
