What is the best way replace the fuel lines. and what kind of lines can i use

I take it that you replaced the fuel filter as it is probably blocked now.. Fuel continually flows through the lines and it would take a big piece to block them unless it is the fine filter at the end of the pickup pipe in the tank

Engine cover removal on s-max

I would recommend loosening the fuel filter and then applying air for a compressor to the fuel tank and have someone watch for fuel filter and when it is full of fuel keep applying air and tighten the filter. check for fuel going through the line from the filter to the engine. Then have someone try to start it while still applying air the the tank which will help push the fuel. I used to do this all the time working on semi's and chevy express vans with duramax diesels.

Found a pressurized gas leak under the hood of my car, what could it be?

Hi there are only a few things really it could be, the main fuel lines run down that side of the car so id start by checking where they exit the firewall and go up to the fuel filter. It will either be a loose hose clamp or a split fuel line. Pretty much just check the fuel lines from the firewall to the entry of the engine and you cant go wrong just be careful of fumes around a warm engine

My fuel line came off of my 96 neon and i cant find where it goes

There are no diagrams that will show you the fuel lines that I am aware of. The service manual assumes that you allready know that the fuel line runs from the fuel tank to the engine. There are 2 quick connects in the short plastic hose that connects to the fuel filter/regulator assembly at the fuel pump module. One end connects to the fuel filter and the other connects to the main line that goes to the engine. It is VERY simple. There is no fuel return line from the engine back to the tank on your vehicle, so there is only one fuel line and absolutely no way to mix it up with anything else.

Have a 1989 honda prelude si cant find fuel filter

Carbureted engines: Two filters; a small one is in the fuel line under the hood; a larger one is located at the rear, just inboard of the left rear wheel.
Fuel-injected engines: the filter is located in the engine compartment, against the firewall, just to the left (as you face the engine) of the throttle housing, and slightly lower (follow the fuel line from your fuel rail, where your injectors are, back to it). It has two fuel lines (in and out) going to it, and it is held in place by a clamp which bolts it to the firewall.
Hope this helps you find it.

Location of fuel filter

I could be wrong but I thought it was in the engine compartment by the fire wall. If not find the fuel line going to fuel rail on intake and follow it back. There were a few cars they put them in the front fender. but follow the line from front back to the tank you will find it.
