the fuel filter on any make or model of domestic and most froeign cars is very simple to replace. it is usually located on the drivers side of the vehicle and is about 3/4 of the way to the rear. usually you will need only a crescent wrench gloves and goggles. make sure you wear the protective gear because gas can not only blind you but can also burn your skin. the fuel filter loos like a can of soda with a pipe at either end. purchase the new one first as to get a reference to what it looks like. first you will loosen the end closre to the front of the vehicle (away from the gas tank). then standby with the fuel filter. as you take it off varying quantities of fuel will begin to flow out of the car. quickly swap the two and tighten starting with the side closer to the rear of the car. in about ten short minutes you will have improved fuel performance. note: a lift is usually used at most auto shops and is more quick and effective. if you have trouble, most fast lubes do it for about 25 dollars.

This job is only easy if the filter has been changed in the last year. If not and you are in an area that is corrosive, it can be a problem. The end of the filter that has the flare nut will rust. If so, you can strip the nut trying to remove it with an open end wrench. I bought a 16mm crows foot from Northern Tool and wrapped a stainless steel band hose clamp around it so the open end of it couldn't spread. That way you can apply a lot of torque to the nut without stripping it. Please note that Northern Tool will sell you one crows foot so you don't have to buy the whole set. By the way this car is a Chevy Lumina or Impala.

If you have not replaced the fuel filter in the last 50,000 miles replace it. Also replace the spark plugs and plug wires if you have not done so. Of course replace the air filter every 30,000 miles.
