    The fuel pump is lokated over the fuel tank. Weather you have the sedan or 5 door coup, the tank needs to be droped... this is the safes way. If you have never done this before, then you shoud really take the car down to a machanic.

I Have A 96 Toyota Avalon xl 3.0 Car Starts And Dies!! Replaced Fuel Pump Fuesl Filter And Still Starts And Stops?


I'm not 100% clear on exactly what isn't working from your question other than now the car is starting and dying after changing the fuel pump. In that case it's possible you've oppositely attached the positive and negative wires to the fuel pump. Hope this might solve part of your problems.

Need location of fuel filter and fuel pump


fuel filter is under vehicle on drivers side back by the fuel tank mounted on frame in fuel line. fuel pump is in the tank. the easiest way to remove the fuel pressure is to pull the fuse for the fuel pump, then start car until it dies out. good-day ! tank has to be removed for fuel pump to be replaced.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 2006 Ford Freestar


Hello there:
if you have your filter great or if not use FRAM G8018 from WalMart for around $8 and then get the fuel line removal tool from Pepboys or autozone for $7. Tool should be 5/16" fuel line disconnect.


  • No need to raise the vehicle.
  • Due to the amount of fuel,that could come out I would use battery powered work light, not 110V AC for safety reasons.

  1. Pull relay #53 from fuse panel under hood. This disconnects fuel pump.
  2. Start engine and let it die. Restart again.
  3. Filter is located under passenger side center seat.
  4. sometimes more fuel will come out than expected. so make sure to Use a clean oil drain pan, or coffee can to catch the excess fuel .
  5. Use tool to disconnect fuel lines. Loosen single screw/clamp. Note the direction of filter.
  6. Replace filter, tighten clamp screw, reconnect fuel lines.
  7. Replace relay. turn the key to the on position for 45 seconds to get the fuel back in the lines
  8. Test by starting car, shut it down, look for leaks. If no leaks start car again, let idle and inspect for leaks again.
Hope this is very helpful for you.
Best regards Michael

Where is the fuse & relay switch for the fuel pump located.


Locate the fuse box. Facing the engine, the box is located on the the right fender. The fuel pump fuse should be labeled, The fuel pump relay is Incorporated in the FI relay located under right center of dash. It is a metal relay usually bolted to the floor near the ecm. Good luck and hope this helps but first replace the the fuel filter since it's the easiest thing to do.
