Just squeez the white colored plastic pieces and pull the lines away from the filter. Warning Fuell will leak or spray from lines but, will stop shortly. than just sanp the lines onto the new filter
If the casing is spilt a filter will leak an incorrectly installed filter will also leak.
No you do not , just loosen the lines slowly and the pressure will leak off Don't smoke are have a drop light close, cause fuel will run out, but then stop.
This leak can be the block, mount or as simple as the filter assembly seal itself. An easy way to isolate the condition would be changing the oil filter, starting the engine and checking for new leaks.
Check the vaccuum lines for a leak. or the headlite switch itself may have a leak in the air lines. If they won't close...that's where I started on mine and found the leak, sealed it and it fixed it right up
The fuel filter and lines are in front of the tank on a Dodge Shadow.
They are called OIL COOLER LINES and they hook to the radiator. Those lines have an O-ring on them and sometimes they will leak. It could be the oil filter adapter gasket and O-ring leaking too.
Yes the lines can leak when they rust through.
Click on the link to your right for the answer. Because of a gas leak?????? Leaking fuel filter or fuel filter connections; Plugged, dirty or poorly connected fuel injector(s); Leaking or faulty fuel pump; Leaking fuel lines; Punctured or damaged fuel tank.
There is a fair amount of fuel that will leak when changing the filter.
with the ignition switch OFF, break the fuel lines loose slowly. there may be some fuel leak out, but that is normal.
I just recently changed my fuel filter by myself in about 20 minutes. The filter is located right in front of the gas tank under the driver's side doors. First clamp a vise grip tight enough to pinch the lines on both sides of the filter. Then use a pliers to compress the hose clamps then slide the clamps about 3 inches away from filter. If your replacing the factory filter it will take a little effort to break it loose. Pull the rubber lines off the old filter - gas will leak from the filter. Put in new filter then move the clamps back onto the filter, then remove your vise grips. Start your Rodeo up and let it run for a minute then check for leaks. Do not over tighten the vise grips on the fuel lines cause you may cut the line.
I just need to see a picture of the lines going to the filter. I have a leak and I am trying to locate it. I am having a hard time just getting a picture! Angelrosevig
They are not designed to leak. This filter may need tightened or replaced.
most leaks are the fuel cap but if not the leak must be hunted down
A broke fuel line can cause a 1995 Beretta to leak fuel into air filter assembly. An exhaust leak can also cause this issue.
I've been trying to find that leak myself. I found that 2 fuel lines with loose hose clamps at the filter cannister, and also found a loose fuel filer. It is still leaking from bottom of cannister, I'll be removing it this weekend and fixing or replacing the fuel filter cannister.
might be a clogged fuel filter or some kind of leak in your fuel lines allowing air in the system.
It's under the frame below the passenger rear door. 1 line in 1 line out. Need a special tool to remove lines or they could leak when you put the new fuel filter on.
Need to check the oil cooler lines, there are 2 of them that are hooked to the oil filter adapter just above the oil filter and they run up the side of the engine and go into the radiator. Driverside. They are probley leaking.
That is a manufacturers code and not in my book but if you google "chevrolet diagnostic code p1415" it should steer you in the right direction. I think it is probably a vacuum leak somewhere. Good luck.
an oil leak
the fuel filter on a 96 beretta is on the driver side in the rear underneath. it is about as big as the oil filter and is silver. it is easy to take off. The fuel filter in my 96 Beretta is on the passenger side in the rear of the car right above the axle. It's also big and cylindrical. Someone suggested that you first start the car and shut it off in gear. That way, there won't be as much pressure in the gas line and leak all over the place. Suggestion: be prepared for gasoline to leak out of the lines. Do in well ventilated place or outside.
A vacuum leak could cause that condition. Check all the vacuum lines under the hood for cracks, splits and disconnections.
