There are no tools required to replace the air filter. On your car, the air filter compartment has several clamps that can be pulled up by hand. Once the clamps are popped up, remove the cover and replace the air filter (pleated side down). Simply close the cover and push the clamps back into place and you're done!

1999 mitsubishi eclipse hard to start

idling is the the idler valve on the intake usually just needs a clean. as for no power this can be the throttle sensor, if the throttle has blank spots it would cause this problem. if the fuel filter has not been changed in a long time it could need changing, especially if not in the last 5 years., air filter could also need changing if this has not been done for a long time. remove the air filter and check its color if its completely black change it, this can also contaminate the maf sensor, this you can clean with MAF sensor cleaner its best to clean this as it will cause engine problems such as you have. so as to conform do these first.

1. check air filter.
2. clean the idle valve.
3. clean the MAF sensor.
do these 3 first before anything ells.

My 1999 Jeep Cherokee classic runs but cuts off and I've replaced the fuel pump three times.It runs good for a while then cuts off.I was wondering what else could it be ?

Have you tried to replace the fuel filter.....sometimes this inexpensive item is often overlooked! It is possible you have some debris in it that gets in the way intermittently and cuts off the flow! If you found this answer helpful please vote so! Thanks

1999 Chevy Silverrado, 5.3 Z71. Stalling out when warmed up going up hill. Took it to Chevy certified repair man said it was Catalist converters. Had those repaced, drove it for a week then same stalling...

Did you notice if you where low on gas either or both times this happened? I wonder if it's not a fuel pressure problem? Other wise might give it a tune up air filter, plugs, fuel filter. I've also noticed that chevy's are always happier with a fresh oil change.

How to tune up, 1999 Rav4

Due to new technologies in newer vehicles the term Tune up has a very loose definition. Most major full service auto shops will tell you it is just changing the spark plugs. As new vehicles are not equipped with a carberator. My personal opinion differs from vehicle to vehicle. To help you I posted a picture on MySpace for you. (got nothin else to do.)

For best results,
Replace the following
Spark plugs,
Ignition wires,
Distributor cap,
Air filter,
Fuel filter.

The fuel filter is on the undercarriage near the fuel tank.

Check the upper and lower hoses for any visual cracks or soft spots.

Check the serpentine belt for any cracks, missing grooves, or exposed threads. Be sure to check both sides. MAP (motorist assurance program) states that any multi-rib belt with 8 cracks or more in a one inch span requires replacement.

Call your autoparts store and see if they carry a fuel system cleaning kit. These are absolutely wonderful. Every kit is a little different, but the staff at your local autoparts store should be able to walk you through the procedure. This should be the last thing to do.

I have posted a few pictures of belt routings, engine diagram, and fuel filter at

let me know if this helps

Changing air filter and fuel filter

Both are under the hood and easy to get to. As for the Air Filter nobody beats K&N they are simply the best. Any fuel filter thats the right one will do.

Need to know where the fuel filter is located please to replace

do you mean it wont start ? if it runs but feels like its low on fuer try running it ( not driving it ) with the fuel cap removed and see if this cures it the air vent maybe blocked and causing a vacume in the tank , hence the fuel will struggle to get to the engine , , worth a try
