In most cases, the actual fuel filter is part of the fuel pump assembly. Chrysler likes to do this kind of thing which makes a simple repair more expensive. I have had to change the pump out of my 98 Neon, so I speak from experience. It also helps when a neighbor is a Dodge mechanic by trade.

First, you will need to locate the fuel tank. The feul tank is situated between the the rear wheels of the vehicle. The fuel filter is located near the right-rear wheel. There is a guard that is mounted over it that must be removed.You will need a 10mm socket wrench. Remove the three (3) screws and place the guard somewhere safe. DO NOT REMOVE THE FUEL FILTER!!! You must de-pressurize the system BEFORE you remove the filter. You can do this by removing the FUEL PUMP fuse in the fuse panel located in the engine compatment. This panel is located directly above the battery. Next, test the pressure AFTER you have removed the fuse by locating the fuel rail (the long metal bar that has the fuel injectors connected to it) and, using a DRY towel, remove the screw cap and press the silver "Shrader" valve inwards toward the rail. If nothing squirts out, the system is depressurized. Please note that after you change the filter, you will need to replace the fuse. Before turning the engine over, notice, that in the "RUN" position, you will hear a "whirling" sound coming form the engine.. This is the system re-pressurizing. Once it stops, turn the key back and to "RUN" again. Again, you will near that distinctive whirling sound. Repeat this process untill you no longer hear that sound. Start the vehicle. At first, the vehicle may not start properly, stay running and idle irradically (lope), hesitate, and may even stall. This is normal behavior and will improve once the vehicle has been re-started (if stalled) and has reached MOT (Minimum Operating Temperature). This is acheived by letting the vehicle idle for no less than 60 seconds.
Good luck!

Fuel filter location for 1996 honda odyssey


All of the fuel filters with exception of the V6 Odyssey models are located on the vehicle's firewall, in line with the fuel line feeding the engine's fuel rail. The fuel filter on the 3.5L V6 Odyssey is located in the fuel tank and requires fuel pump removal to access. Fuel filters located on the firewall should be replaced if the fuel filter exhibits signs of seepage or corrosion. Always replace a fuel filter and its sealing washers if the fuel system has become contaminated, if the fuel system fuel pressure drops below specification prior to replacing the fuel pump, or whenever the fuel pump is replaced.
