The fuel filter assembly is inside the gas tank. Don't touch it. I have an expensive manual on the car and the procidure involves by the way lifting of the whole car and slowly (on a jack lowering the gas tank). I was quoted a price for the laber from a suzuki dealership 400-500. Must be done every 120k miles.
Why? Cause your tank fills with rust
Does it accumulate from staff coming from the gasstation? No, it is your own tank rusting, being eaten , and palstic seals on your fuel pump also, by ethanol from the cheap gas you have been using.
I excuse you since I myself didn't know about it, and I also have the same problem.
When you give the car to the mechanic , much better to a Suzuki dealership ask them!!! also to change the gas tank air filter.
What? Airfilter in the tank? Why change it?
The manual says so, and ... by the way that cheap gas with the ethanol may have something to do with it, aaa... like ethanol being part of the alchochols and evaping way too fast in a sommer day.
If you don't stop using gas with ethanol, then... you are eventually in for a bill over 1000 for including new fuel pump, that you also can not install yourself.

Where is the fuel filter

Most likely the fuel filter is in the gas tank along with the fuel pump, most newer cars do not have the inline fuel filter anymore.

1988 Isuzu Trooper II LS 4dr/4wd I changed fuel pump and inline filter about month ago, it will run but only if i keep it runinning with gas peddle at high rpms, will not idle as soon as I stop with...

That looks like air in the fuel system. Bleed the fuel system by loosening the bleeder nipple, pump the bleeder( top of the fuel filter cartridge ) remove any bubbles that comes out from the bleeder, if there are no more bubbles tighten the bleeder and start the engine.

Hope that helps you out!

Trying to find where the inline fuel filter is located on a 1988 ford country squire station wagon it is supposed to be on or near the frame on drivers side

Ford had a small fuel filter up near ware the fuel line comes into the eighter the carb or fuel injector main on some fuel injucter engines . Im not sure what engine you have .But my ford use to give me a lot of problems with this filter until i cut into the fuel line and added a inline filter before it mine is an 85 . So look where the fuel line attaches to the fuel inlet its a 3 or 4 dollar part but its a vary fine mesh filter and clogs easy the older the vehicle is the more sediment you end up with in your tank .I did mine 10 years ago haven't had a problem sence Good luck

Where do i find the fuel filter location to replace it on my 2006 pontiac granprix?

That was about the year they did without an inline fuel filter. It is most likely in the fuel tank itself. If there is an inline one look along the passenger side frame by the back seat and that whould be where it is if you have an inline filter. I hope this helped and good luck.

Were is the fule filtter on 1995 toyota 4runner

Fuel filters for 1995 Toyota 4Runner would be under the vehicle driver's side halfway between front and rear. It is an inline design and would look like the image below. The two (2) ends have threaded openings that connect to the fuel line from the tank and the other going towards the engine.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Take care

Low fuel pressure is there a fuel shutoff switch

Low engine oil pressure can cause a fuel pump to shut off. Its a safety feature included in most vehicles any more to prevent running an engine with little or no oil and burning up the engine itself. Make sure the engine has enough oil, and then look for the oil sending unit. Could be bad, or going bad.
Try replacing the fuel filter. I would imagine it to be located under the car, inline with the fuel lines, otherwise consult your owners manual for the location.
Look for any broken ground wires in and around the engine compartment and possibly around the fuel tank itself. Could be dirty, corroaded, or just not making a good connection.
The last thing, I can think of would be a bad fuel pump. I've taken fuel pumps out of the fuel tank before where trash was cloging the first filter and rendering its capability, before finally burning up.

Where is the inline fuel filter for this car?


To my knowledge fuel filters for 1995-2002 Suzuki Esteem are in the center portion of the firewall right behind the engine and would be held by a clamp. It may look something like this.

Good luck and kind regards.
