Check Vehicle Fit

Dirt and even rust can enter the fuel stream at any point along the long journey from refinery to your vehicle’s fuel tank. So, your fuel filter becomes the final line of defense against damaging contaminants getting into your vehicle. Clean fuel, free from dirt particles and rust, is essential for the smooth and efficient operation of your vehicle. A tiny grain of dirt can clog injectors, leading to erratic performance and poor gas mileage. Clean fuel increases gas mileage and improves engine performance - and with the fluctuating cost of gas these days, that’s really important!

Product Features:
  • Defense against damaging contaminants
  • Helps increase gas mileage
  • Improves engine performance

        The product is good, Installing it into a 94 Honda Accord was very difficult as it was hard to get to with not much working space other parts in the way. Took about 3 hours to install, you will need crow's foot wrenches.

                                  Instructions to replace fuel filter: 1. Crawl under the van near the rear bumper and locate the gas tank. Find the gas line running from the end of the gas tank toward the front of the vehicle. 2. Follow the gas line until you locate a clear plastic apparatus, which is the fuel filter. 3. Pry the filter from the fuel filter mount with the screwdriver; then use the pliers to pull the tubes off the ends of the fuel filter. 4.Slide the gas line onto the proper sides of the new fuel filter and then slide the filter back into the mount. 5. Start the car up, turning the key to "Accessories On" for 3 to 5 seconds first and then turn the car the rest of the way on. This allows the fuel pump to prime the gas line prior to the engine firing. Tools: Screwdrivers, Pliers.

                                  Remove the bottom fuel line by turning the fuel line nut with a 14mm open end wrench. Turn counter clockwise to loosen. Once that the fuel line is loose, finish unscrewing the fuel line nut with your fingers. Pull the fuel line out of the bottom of the fuel filter.

                                  There are copper washer/gaskets included with the filter and necessary for instillation. You may be able to use your old ones, but check carefully for leaks after installation if you do.
