The fuel filter is located on the fuel feed pipe, between the fuel pump and the fuel injectors. It will be a Metallic tube like item about 4 inches long inline with your fuel supply (feed) line. If you can lift vehicle or get underneath it, then find your gas tank, find the line coming from top of your gas tank and trace it out. Filter is uaully within a few feet of the gas tank.

My 2005 chevy malibu is not getting gas. not sure if it is the built in anti theft causing it or if it is the fuel pump. how can u tell the difference. (the security theft light goes on and off) and where...


Hello pass.... The fuel pump is in the gas tank. The malibu does not have any fuel filters it only has a strainer on the fuel pump itself. You will have to drop the gas tank to get to the fuel pump.
The Malibu Classic (8th letter of VIN is "F") with the 2.2 Ecotech 4-cylinder engine has a fuel filter between the fuel tank and the rear axle. One end of the filter has a threaded connector and the other is a typical compression style. Regarding the antitheft system, if that is the problem I recommend that you contact an autoelectric repair shop and get them involved as they have the diagnostic tools and the wiring diagrams to get to the bottom of these complex devices.

Where is the fuel filter on a 2005 chevy malibu, 4 cylinder


  • Remove the gas cap to relieve pressure in the tank. Lift the hood and locate the fuse panel on the driver's side. Remove the fuel pump fuse. Turn the ignition and attempt to start the car; if it runs, allow it to stall. Turn off the ignition. Remove the negative terminal from the battery.
  • 2 Locate the fuel filter beneath the car between the rear axle and the gas tank. Remove the protective plastic cover with a screwdriver.
  • 3 Remove the carriage bolt securing the filter to the frame. Detach the inlet and outlet fuel line fittings with an open-end wrench. Fuel may spill as you turn the nuts, so have rags or a small container ready.
  • 4 Insert the new filter and secure the fuel lines and carriage bolt. Reattach the plastic cover.
  • 5 Replace the fuel filter fuse, negative battery terminal and gas cap. Close the hood and turn the ignition on. Allow the car to idle for a few minutes while the new filter fills with gasoline.

    Where is the gas filter?


    A gas filter is also called a fuel filter. A car's fuel filter is located along the fuel lines, either in the engine compartment or underneath the car by the fuel tank. It is the responsibility of the fuel filter to trap large particles in the fuel in order to prevent them from getting into the engine.

    Where is the fuel filter located


    The fuel filter (2) is located under the rear of the car, behind the fuel tank. There is no service interval for fuel filter replacement. Replacement is required only if the fuel filter becomes restricted. e37512d.gif

    Fuel filter location


    The fuel filter is located underneath the vehicle in front of the gas tank

    Squeeze the white plastic quick-disconnect tabs together and pull the inlet line away from the filter, then detach the outlet line from the fuel filter, then unbolt the filter mounting bracket to remove the fuel filter from the car..
