The fuel filter on a 97 Camry is located on the firewall, on the driver side of the engine compartment, right above the transmission. This is not easy to change. Suggest that the engine to be cold when attempting this to avoid getting burns from the hot engine. Note also that when the filter is removed, fuel may still be under pressure, and it my spray for a bit. Now, here is the bad news: Toyota fuel filters are notoriously overtightend when assembled at the factory. This being said, when you remove the filter, the threads from the line running from the bottom of the filter (to the fuel tank) my strip out when you remove that line, and you could very well need to replace that line, along with the filter. If the engine is running poorly, investigate & exhaust all possibilities to correct the running condition before condemning the fuel filter. Finally, always use new copper gaskets when replacing the filter (it should come with 2 new gaskets).
Hope this helps you.

Fuel filter location for 2006 kia optima 4 cyl

It depends, early production, it shows an inline fuel filter, The picture I have doesn't have any orientation, as far as location, you can't tell. I'd have to follow the fuel line. If you find it, make sure no pressure on the fuel system before you take anything loose.
Late production, says the fuel filter is part of fuel pump assembly.

Location of fuel oump and filter

You are right - the 97 Jeep with the 6 cyl engine does not have a replaceable fuel filter. There is a screen in the tank before the pump.
You have to drain the tank then drop it to the ground. The pump comes out the top of the tank.

Where do I find the fuel filter on my 2001 toyota solara 4 cyl??

The fuel filter on a 2002 Camry is an "In-Tank Filter". This means the filter is in the gas tank and is integrated with the fuel pump. In order to replace the filter, you must remove the tank and disassemble the fuel pump.
Toyota's service schedule, which can be found at, does not list the fuel filter replacement through 120K miles (as high a the schedule goes).
Thank you for using Fixya and hope this helps.

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.
