I'm not sure if I done it the right way, but I had to break the plastic piece going into the fuel line on the end of the old fuel filter. Then I took needle nose pliers and pulled out the metal piece that held it in. Then the new one I bought went right in. This is what I did when nothing I tried to do to get the old one out worked and frustration set in.
where is the fuel filter located on a 2003 Pontiac sunfire
A 1997 Pontiac Sunfire has an AC Filter located in the cabin. The filter can be found behind the glove compartment and is used replaceable.
I've never had to change mine, but it's an in-line filter located near the gas tank.
The 2002 Pontiac sunfire does not have a cabin filter. The air flows freely either in fresh air or recirculation modes.
next to the tank
Near the gas tank. It's an in-line filter.
Under the car by the fuel tank
You can find the 2005 Pontiac Sunfire air filter the inside of the air filter housing.. The air filter housing will be in the engine compartment.
The filter is located inside the transmission just inside the bottom pan.
No, not just because you ran out of gas but you should replace the fuel filter.
Look under the vehicle - follow the fuel line from the tankRemove clamps and support to replace
The fuel filter on a 2002 Pontiac Sunfire is in the rear between the fuel tank and the rear axle. By the way its under the car and easy to change takes about 10 minutes.
I know that on a '96 the fuel filter is an in-line type near the fuel tank. As Pontiac hasn't really altered much on the Sunfire in over ten years, I'd suggest starting there.
Try back near the fuel tank. if it is the same as my sunfire it is right behind the gas tank.
on the 2.4 its to the left of the starter above the oil filter
just above the oil filter
On the oil pan near the top. Under the engine. About middle of the car.
Um, which filter? Gotta be more specific.
There is none. This vehicle does not have a air filter for HVAC ventilation.
it at the back of your gas tank
Near the rear of the vehicle up near the gas tank; RELIEVE FUEL PRESSURE FIRST BEFORE REMOVING THE FILTER!!!
That filter is hard to get at. Look between the rear of the engine block and the fire wall, near the bottom of the engine on the passenger side.
Its easier to access it from the top than the bottom!
Fuel filter should be either along frame rail or in front of tank -- follow fuel lines Remove clamps and replace filter Make note of fuel flow direction on filter
