Sand filters are usually used for swimming pool filters - not cars and trucks.

It is usual to clean them by back-washing, not by replacing the sand! I suggest that if you do not know how to backwash, call in a pool maintenance company.

SOURCE: How do you replace a Cabin Air Filter and air filter for vented front seats?

The seat filters are located underneath each seat, driver and passenger. Slide seat(s) all way forward. From the rear reach underneath and feel for a small square filter, about 2x3in. Grasp an edge and pull down , it will pop out. Replace same way. Good hunting finding replacements. Had to go to a dealer and order.

SOURCE: I need step by step instructions on replacing a

I got this from Haynes Diesel Engine Repair Manual. I bought it for my 6.2.
1. Remove the fuel filler cap and air cleaner assembly.
2. On filters without an air bleed screw, place a rag under the filter to soak up fuel and detach the lower clip FIRST to release pressure and then the top clip. They pop off with a screwdriver.
3. On filters with an air bleed screw (top passenger side) drain fuel from the filter by opening the screw first and the engine water drain valve (engine front near thermostat) if it has one. Detach the clips and remove filter.
4.Make sure the seating surface is clean and place new filter in position. On non-air bleed filters put the upper clip on FIRST. On air bleed filters secure both clips, then close the valve and attach a piece of hose to the bleed port into a pail.
5. Air must be purged BEFORE start up, so disconnect the pink wire from the top of the injector pump and crank the engine in 10 second cycles with a 30 second wait time until clear bubble-free fuel comes out the lower fitting or air bleed. Connect the lower clip on the non-air bleed , close the bleed hose and reconnect the pink wire.
6. Start the engine and let it idle for several minutes to purge any remaining air and check for leaks.
Hope this helps.

Do i have to buy another fuel pump for my car because my 4year old put sand in my gas tank

Most likely, but maybe not. There is usually a filter screen on the input of the pump that can be changed. BUT, if you want to be safe, drop the tank and have it cleaned thoroughly, replace the fuel pump and fuel filter if you have one, have the fuel lines disconnected and purged, and pray that you aren't going to need injectors or worse, a new engine if the sand got that far.

I have a 1993 Honda del sol,my oil filter leaks no matter what kind i put on and how tight it is.

I am sure you are positive that nothing is leaking somewhere else making you think it is coming from the oil filter ...In most cases it is the oil sending unit leaking near or around it...The oil sending unit looks like an electrical plug with wires attached to it ....However it only takes one grain of sand to make an oil filter leak...Does it leak as soon as you put it on..?..Does it only leak when it gets hot.?..Do you always clean the oil from filter area that comes from old filter when removed..Sometimes oil gets trapped in the frame under vehicle and makes you think it is leaking..It normally takes the oil a long time to finally leave the frame area if trapped considering some frame designs and small lips and curves of suspension..I would recommend after removing old filter USE SAFETY GLASSES AND BREATHING MASK..clean all around it with starting fluid ...,it will dry off quickly"Wipe everything around it to a clean shine..let it dry completely..use a good flashlight and closely examine filter stud threads at filter sure base and threads are very clean...Don't forget to lube rubber seal on new filter before installing it..DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN..THIS WILL DAMAGE THREADS..get safety glasses and breathing mask ...It would be a good idea to raise front of car and place on sturdy Jack stands ..Don't forget to set Emerg.brake and block wheels for safety..If there is no doubt it is the filter The threaded stud that filter fits on could be partially stripped will make you think it is on tight but it will actually be on slightly offset from filter base...

I have a 2000 Chevy Sonoma ZR72 what would cause

Clogged fuel filter or trash, IE; Sand , in the fuel tank. Check filter first. Back wash old filter into a rag and see what comes out.. If you see or feel fine grit, then a gas station gave you a load of sand and you will have to drop the tank and clean it out, thoroughly. If you continue to shut of and restart to drive, then the sand will work its way through the filter sock in the tank and you will be buying a new fuel; pump. $300.00. Been there, done that.....

Change cabin filter in lancer

It's really easy. If you open your glove box and look behind it, you will see the compartment where the filter goes. Unhook the hinge on the left side. The box will hang by two hinges, just pop off. Look at your new cabin filter and you will see the two screws that you need to take off to put in the new filter. In my case, there was no filter at all. You may need to use an exacto knife and cut out the plastic. You will notice the new filter has the lip to stay on. After you cut out the square, put the new filter on, and screw it in.

Oil leak 2000 alero, just replaced plug, not it, leaked out all the oil after I drove it 20 miles, please help, could it be a gasket or what

Check the oil filter. The old gasket might be stuck on the engine (two gaskets stuck together), or the new gasket might be defective, misaligned or missing.

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.
