For the fuel filter: Removal & Installation Many Acura models are equipped with a theft deterrent audio system. Make sure you have the necessary code before disconnecting the battery. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure, as outlined in Section 5 of this manual. On 2.2L and 3.0L engines you may have to remove the engine wire harness bracket and power steering feed hose clamp. Wrap a shop towel around the fittings and, using a proper flare nut wrench, slowly loosen the fuel line fittings. Remove the banjo bolts from the fuel lines. Remove the fuel filter clamp retaining bolt and the clamp. Remove the filter from the vehicle. A through cleaning of the high pressure hoses is recommended before installation. To install: Install the new filter and tighten the clamp mounting bolt to 7 ft. lbs. (10 Nm). Attach the banjo fittings with new washers in place. Tighten the banjo fitting bolts to 25 ft. lbs. (33 Nm). On 2.2L and 3.0L engines you may have to reconnect the engine wire harness bracket and power steering feed hose clamp. Connect the negative battery cable, then start the engine and thoroughly and check for leaks. Thanks mike

  • This fuel filter is under the hood on the drivers side in the rear by the firewall. Fairly simple this one is.
  1. The nuts on the fuel filter are a simple 17mm and a 14mm wrench and a 10mm socket (or wrench). No fancy gas line tool needed for this filter. Do it when the engine is cool because if you get a little gas spray on the top of a hot engine it can be bad.
  2. Take the gas cap off and put a couple shop rags around the fuel filter to catch any gas drips. Always wear wear as well.
  3. Remove the top fuel filter gas line nut.
  4. Now remove the bottom fuel line nut from the fuel filter.
  5. Not remove the 10mm bolt that fixes the bracket holding the fuel filter on.
  6. Remove the fuel filter.
  7. Make sure to put the fuel filter in the same way (pay attention to the arrows. The arrow always points away from the gas tank line.
  8. Now reverse to finish the job.
Regards, Tony

    What size engine? I have pics. Unfortunate for my rating though. An engine size will help.

    • Here is your pic. Like I stated before it is on the passenger side against the firewall. It's not under any master brake cylinder. I hope you take this as a satisfactory answer, as the first one also was.

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.
