Fuel Filter

Print
The recommended change interval for the fuel filter on all models is 60,000 miles under normal service. Severe service will require more frequent changing of the fuel filter.
The filter is located in the passengers side of the engine compartment.

CAUTION Before disconnecting any fuel lines, be sure to open the gas tank filler cap to relieve any pressure in the system and wrap a shop towel around the fuel line fitting before opening. Observe all fuel handling precautions.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

See Figures 1, 2 and 3

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Wrap a shop towel around the fittings and using a proper wrench, slowly loosen the fuel line fittings.
  3. Remove the 2 banjo bolts from the fuel lines.
  4. Remove the fuel filter clamp retaining bolt and the clamp.
  5. Remove the filter from the vehicle.

It is very important that ALL of the fuel line banjo bolt washers be replaced every time the banjo bolts are loosened. If the washers are not replaced the fuel lines will leak pressurized fuel causing the risk of fire or explosion.
  1. Install the new filter in position and tighten the clamp mounting bolt to 7 ft. lbs. (10 Nm).
  2. Attach the banjo fittings with new washers in place. On Legend and Vigor, tighten the fuel line flare connector to 28 ft. lbs. (38 Nm). On the remaining models, tighten the banjo fitting bolts to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  3. Start the vehicle and check for leaks.

Diagnostic trouble code P00087


The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.

Condition/Concern:
A dealer may need to perform a repair on the rubber portion of the fuel supply (suction) lines. The rubber section of the line could become kinked or collapse. Fuel lines that kink or collapse may induce a fuel system restriction (high vacuum gauge readings) or DTCs P0087, P0093, and/or P1093 to set.

If a technician was to suspect the rubber portion of the fuel feed line collapsing or kinking, replacement of only the rubber line is acceptable.

Recommendation/Instructions:
Complete the steps below to repair the rubber section of fuel supply line:

•Carefully cut, split, and remove the OEM crimp from both ends of the flexible hose. These crimps can be cut with a small cut-off wheel. Split the crimp into two pieces (use your discretion on first cut location, then cut directly across from, or 180 degrees from first cut). Special care must be taken not to damage the flare on the end of the steel pipe that will be reused.
•Remove the OEM crimps and flexible portion of hose from the existing supply line.
•If replacing the rubber section of the supply line, a 1/2 ID hose meeting SAE specification 100R3 is suggested. Dealers may be able to find a local supplier for this hose, or can contact the manufacturer Parker Hannifin. The replacement hose would be a 1/2" diameter Parker part number 601-8 or H017-8. To find a local distributor the Parker website can be accessed at www.parker.com
•Use worm type hose clamps (use double clamps on each end) to attach the replacement hose to the existing pipe.
The locations of the flexible hoses are pictured below.

How do you remove & replace the rubber hoses that run from the gas tank to the metal fuel lines? The hose goes between the frame and body of the car I can not pull or push them out, so how are you...


Step 1-Determine type of fuel line to be replaced. Rubber hoses will have clamps on both ends that should be loosened with screw driver. Nylon and steel lines will have a ferrule at both ends removed and replaced using proper size line wrench

Step 2-Using proper size line wrench or screwdriver, loosen fittings by turning counter clockwise. Catch fuel remaining in lines in a gasoline safe container.

Step 3-Remove defective fuel line and install the new line or hose opposite of removing. Take care not to strip or cross-thread fittings as this will cause leaks.

Step 4-Dispose of remaining fuel in an OSHA safe container.


hope it helps-

I have a fuel filter for 1991 Honda Accord and need to install it


when ur standing in front of ur vehicle with the hood open ... look straight back to the throttle body . now look to the left about a 12inches there is a box(black) with a few vacuum lines going to it. beneath that box there is the fuel filter. you see it ? has 2 lines comeing out the top of it. its round and black.. remove the black box by removeing the 10mm bolts and slideing it off the firewall(upward) ..now lay it aside..with the box still attached to the lines... now for u it may be easier to remove rubber air intake duct to access the filter. remove the fuel line with a flarenut wrench or line wrench.. do not use vice grips. the other line could be removed with a regular socket and ratchet set up. now remove the 10mm bolts to remove the filter with bracket off the firewall. remove the old filter and install new filter onto the bracket . re install it to the firewall then the lines and reinstall all other components . u may have taken off ... do not forget the washers on the filter line, it will leak with out them. .tighten but over tighten. run the vehicle and check filter and lines for leaks. remember : use a flarenut linewrench to remove the metal fuel line . its the line that looks like it has a nut that threads into the filter....also heres how the washers go back on... filter /washer/.... line with circle banjo fitting/washer......bolt.... tighten down... hope this wasnt too confuseing .. it is just hard to explain in words... let me know how it worked out..good luck...
