Is a subaru outback 2002 2.5 engine, hard to start cold and running rough under acceleration stall when push accelerator pedal and sometin]mes die no power. codes P0171 and P0130


Check the following items:
1. good clean air filter?
2. no leaks in the air filter box, cover closed properly?
3. connecting hoses attached to the air box properly?
4. pcv valve working correctly?

1. Change the air filter if you don't recall the last time it was done. I record the mileage on filter with a permanent marker. Put it in a location where its visible with the air box opens. Change the air filter every 2 years or 30000 miles which ever occurs first.

2. Ensure that the two parts are aligned properly and that all the clamps and hoses all fit correctly. A good way to find vacuum leaks is to use vaseline on the ends of any poor fitting hoses. Do one at a time and you can isolate the problem hoses.

3.The two vent hoses that attach the valve covers to both sides of the air box can become loose with age. Adding some screw clamps can solve a small leak. Replace the hoses if they are hard and dried out. Also inspect the throttle body connection part of the air box for loose clamps and fitment.

4.Pcv test is pretty simple. Start the engine, open the oil cap, then hold a piece of paper over the cap. If the pcv is working the engine vacuum should try to suck the paper in. If the vacuum is weak then clean or replace the pcv valve.

If the all the above checks are good then its time to replace the front oxygen sensor.

I have a 1974 Dodge Sportsman Motorhome. How do I


You should be able to see a filter in the fuel line in the engine compartment. It may be made of plastic or aluminum, likely aluminum. There will be a clamp on each end. They may be spring clamps that you close with a pair of pliers, or more likely screw clamps. Simply remove them and the old filter and replace with the new filter. Just be sure to locate the arrow marking the direction of flow. The arrow must point toward the carburator.

How to change a fuel filter


I can't completely remember the exact location on the Monte Carlos, but most older cars it's located on the fuel line just before the fuel line hooks up to the carb. Should be two small hose clamps holding it.

WHERE IS THE FUEL FILTER ON A 88 NISSAN PATHFINDER


Fuel Filter REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CAUTION
NEVER SMOKE WHEN WORKING AROUND OR NEAR GASOLINE! MAKE SURE THAT THERE IS NO ACTIVE IGNITION SOURCE NEAR YOUR WORK AREA! 1970-83 Carbureted Engines The fuel filter is located on the right inner fender in the engine compartment. It is a disposable cartridge type.
  1. Using a pair of pliers, expand the hose clamp on one side of the filter, and slide the clamp further down the hose, past the point to which the filter pipe extends. Remove the other clamp in the same manner.
  2. Grasp the hoses near the ends and twist them gently to pull them free from the filter pipes.
  3. Pull the filter from the clip and discard.
  4. Install the new filter into the clip. Push the hoses onto the filter pipes, and slide the clamps back into position. Start the engine and check for leaks. Fig. 1: Fuel filter - 1970-79 85851035.gif
    Fig. 2: Fuel filter - 1980-83 85851036.gif
1984-86 Carbureted Engines The fuel filter is located on the inside of the frame above the left rear spring front shackle. Changing the filter is VERY awkward. Since it is in-line and below tank level, fuel will pour from the fuel lines when they are disconnected from the filter. The only way of preventing this, is to siphon all of the gasoline from the tank before replacing the filter. Another possible method is to clamp and plug the fuel line, but this is not recommended because of the danger of leaking fuel or damage which could occur to the fuel line when clamped. It would, therefore, be a good idea to run the tank almost dry before changing the filter. Once the tank is dry, disconnect the fuel lines at the filter, unbolt the old filter and install a new one. Reconnect the fuel lines, fill the tank, start the engine and check for leaks. Fig. 3: Fuel filter - 1984-86 85851037.gif

Fuel Injected Engines WARNING
Never attempt to remove the fuel filter without first relieving the fuel system pressure!
  1. Release the fuel pressure from the fuel line as follows:
    1. Remove the fuel pump fuse at the fuse box.
    2. Start the engine.
    3. After the engine stalls, crank the engine two or three times to make sure that the fuel pressure is released.
    4. Turn the ignition switch OFF and reinstall the fuel pump fuse.
  2. Loosen the hose clamps at the fuel inlet and outlet lines then slide each line off the filter nipples.
  3. Remove the fuel filter.
  4. Replace the fuel filter. Always be sure to use new hose clamps. Fig. 7: Fuel filter - 1986-88 VG30i 85851038.gif

Where is fuel filter located on 98 sidekick 4dr auto 4wd 4cyl?


1. Raise the vehicle. Check to make sure the supports are safe and secure. Take a drain pan and several clean shop rags to mop up any spilled fuel.
2. Crawl under the right side of the vehicle between the front and back wheels. Set the drain pan under the fuel filter to catch any fuel that drains from the lines.
3. Press the fuel line clamp tabs with a pair of pliers and detach the fuel lines from the fuel filter. Slide the clamp down both fuel lines away from the fuel filter while maintaining pressure on the clamp.
4. Note the position of the fuel filter inlet and outlet nipples before removing the fuel filter. Remove the lower clamp bolt and loosen the clamp adjusting bolt. Remove the filter from the mounting clamp. Lift the fuel filter out of the mounting clamp.
Install the Fuel Filter:
1. Work under the vehicle. Slide the new filter into its mounting clamp. Tighten the adjusting bolt until it's snug. Turn the filter in the clamp so that the inlet and outlet nipples are in the same position as before removal. Tighten the adjusting bolt. Put the lower clamp bolt in position. Tighten it securely.
2. Connect the outlet hose to the top filter nipple. Connect the inlet hose to the lower nipple. Push the fuel lines up over the nipples as far as possible. Compress the fuel line clamp tabs and slide the clamp up each line until it is secure over the nipple.
3. Position the clamps at least 1/4 inch from the connected end of the fuel lines, making sure the clamps are set over the nipples. Start the engine and allow it to idle. Check for fuel leaks and make the necessary adjustments. Turn the engine off. Lower the vehicle.
Oh and if you missed it, filter is attached with a bracket to a crossmember in front of the fuel tank on the passenger side.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

2001 madza tribute fuel filter


The fuel filer is located beneath the fuel pump mounting close to the left side rear wheel. However, this position subjects the filter to localized pit corrosion problem. But faily easy to change if you can order/purcahse the correct filter.

Unsrew the two clamp support screws to open up space to remove the filter in place, then retrieved plastic clip pins on either side of the filter and pull the tubes out. Install the replacement filter and assemble clamps.

Changing Fuel Filter in a 1988 Plymouth Reliant


Hi there!

It's located on the passenger side of the car in front of the rear tire.
Change it in the morning, after the car has stood overnight as it will be under pressure otherwise, and need to be depressurised.
Have a bowl and rags handy to catch spilled fuel during this operation.

You will need a Spanner to remove the bolt holding the filter and pliers and/or a screwdriver to remove the hose clamps from the filter.
Remove the bolt and then remove the hose clamps. Slowly pull the hoses off the filter. Dispose of the used filter properly. Then reverse the steps to put on the new filter

If this proves useful, Please spare a moment to rate it as Fixya! Thanks.
