Changing the Fuel Filter
The FSM recommends inspecting the fuel filter for the first time at
60,000 miles (or 4 years) and then every 30,000 miles (or 2 years) from that point on.
WARNING: Before removing the fuel
filter, release the fuel pressure from the fuel line.
Releasing the fuel
- Locate the fuse panel under the dash, to the left hand side of the
steering wheel. Remove the fuel pump fuse. (For 91-94, the fuel pump fuse is the third
fuse down from the top on the left hand side. For 95-98, it is the fourth fuse down from
the top in the second column from the left hand side.)
- Start the engine, and let it idle until it stalls.
- After the engine stalls, crank the engine two or three times to make
sure that the fuel pressure is released.
- Turn the ignition switch to OFF.
- Re-install the fuel pump fuse.
Replacing the fuel filter:
- Locate the fuel filter on the drivers side of the engine bay, towards
the firewall, between the intake hose and the brake master cylinder.
- Place a rag under and around the filter to catch any remaining fuel
that may leak out when the hoses are removed
- Loosen the fuel hose clamps and remove the hoses from the filter.
- Remove the filter from the mounting bracket and replace with new
filter (NOTE: Do not use a synthetic resinous fuel filter).
- Re-attach hoses and hose clamps. Clamps should be positioned 3 mm
from the free end of the hose.
- Turn the ignition switch to ON, and check for leaks.
