Hey there stomper13,

Good News. Not for 1991-97 models. For these years, the filter is 'in-line' and attached to frame in the engine compartment (lower left side).

You'll need one of those 'quick disconnect' tools to release the fittings though. (or make one out of an aluminum can).

Remember to relieve fuel pressure before removing anything. The pressure release is also in-line.

Fuel filter

Have you purchased the filter yet?

most new up vehicles no not have a serviceable fuel filter. The fuel filter is part of the fuel pump module. It is serviced when the fuel pump is replaced.

I checked some online parts retailers and do t see a listing for a fuel filter. You could always check with the Hyundai parts department to see if there is a filter available.

How to remove the fuel tank and replace fuel filter on a 2005 Chrysler 300

Are you having a problem with a plugged filter or just doing a service?

Many vehicles no longer have an external servicable fuel filter any more. They are meant to just be left alone. It does not make sense to me because external fuel filters could get plugged. Where is that substance that plugged the external filters going if there is no filter.

Of course you can purchase the part. But that is for the time when the fuel pump needs replaced.

Fuel pump needs to be replaces on 2000 Chevrolet suburban, do I also need a new filter, relay and induction?

Do you know for sure that the fuel pump failed or do you have a bad relay? If the fuel pump relay is good no you don't need to replace it. The fuel pump unit comes with the sending unit and a sock filter. I would replace the inline fuel filter when you replace the pump. In line fuel filters need to be replaced every 36000 miles. If that filter starts to plug up it makes the pump work harder which leads to premature failure.

Does the 2003 Mitsubishi Galant have a separate filter and fuel pump or do you have to replace both in order to replace one?

the filter is located in the engine bay or under the car. not attached to the fuel pump.
I dont think the dealership will help you with this, however if you purchase your fuel filter from a parts store they can possibly give you the exact location. hope this helps!

My voyager is turning over but seems not to be getting fuel. could it be a in-line filter or the pump?

it could be either, replace the filter 1st, its much cheaper and a good idea anyway if you need to replace the pump. you can purchase a fuel system pressure tester which screws onto the fuel rail.

It turns over but wont start replaced several things still wont start wondering if it is fuel pump or fuel injector

does it get spark? you can purchase a fuel pressure gage and check the pressure yourself. Also turn on the ignition and then get back by the fuel pump and listen for it. if you can't hear it run then it needs to be replace.

Basically, my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L is turning over but doesn't start. I purchased some starting fluid and sprayed it into the carburetor. After that, it starts for a few seconds, but...

Your fuel pump is in the gas tank. Before going there check the relay and all attending fuses as well as the fuel filter (on top of pump/sending unit)
If you can't hear the pump running when you first turn the key on, likely it is electrical. If you can, then could be the filter. There are other reasons for your problem but start with the easier common stuff.

My truck will not start. i have a new starter, alternator, fuel filter fuel pump, mas, air filter. any other suggestions. its fine once its started. i spay choke spray in it to get started.

I have had similar problems and had to replace the fuel pressure regulator. It's a major expense because it sets below the diaphram in the intake manifold. Ask your mechanic about it, it may be the issue. I would get about 30,000 miles between replacement, I've replace it 3 times since purchasing the 2000 chevy blazer new, first one was under warranty.
