How difficult is it to replace the fuel filter or fuel pump on a 89 Plymouth Sundance?
Fuel filters are easy. Fuel pumps are hard. Buy an after market maintenance manual for your car. Read and understand the instructions for each of these thoroughly before starting. Use brass tools (fuel pump), they don't make sparks.
Additional: Fuel pumps aren't really too hard. Definately get a manual, but it's very do-able. You'll need to jack the car's front end up to tip the gas back in the tank, release the bolts on the pump, and pull it out. Keep a bucket handy to catch fuel spills, and make sure you release the pressure on the fuel line, if there is any. (Especially on a turbo, because it will be very pressurized!) Despite being in the tank, it's a fairly easy operation.
I have a 94 Plymouth sundance duster. I am sure the location is the same. It should be right behind your oil filter underneath the engine. If you jack the front end up and slide underneath, you should see it behind the oil filer. If yo have the six cylinder the above is true. If you have a four cylinder the starter is under the manifolds on the rear of the engine.

The long and short wheelbase Voyagers use different fuel filter part numbers but the filters look similar. The photo in the link is the short or standard wheelbase filter.
It's under the air filter assembly. Remove the air filter compartment and the fuel filter will be underneath. It's bolted to the sidewall with a bracket. Remove the in and out fuel lines to the filter, then unbolt from the sidewall. Reverse the process with the new filter then replace the air filter compartment. Basic tools are only needed (i.e., sockets, adjustable wrench, screwdriver, etc.) I did mine and it took about an hour, was…
It is more difficult to replace the fuel filter on this Lexus than 90% of other cars. You will probably have to end up bringing it in to a shop where they can put the car on a lift. Nevertheless, the fuel filter is located in the engine compartment on the driver's side. You have to take off the air vent connected to the air filter to get better access. Then, unscrew the bolts on…
