the main fuel filter is located near the fuel tank and towards the front of the vehicle, almost directly under the rear seat/floor it's a round cylinder about 2 1/2 inches in diameter and 3 1/2- 4 inches long with fittings on the hoses... the hoses are removed using a 5/8 inch wrench on the line fittings and a 3/4 inch wrench on the filter side... I always try to use a "5/8 inch line wrench" on the lines due to how easy a standard "open end wrench" can strip the fitting and then you're replacing the fuel supply lines too... If you dont have a "5/8 line wrench" you can buy a set of craftsman's at sears for around $30 they also make a metric set as well... the fuel filter side is usually ok to hold with a standard open end wrench un less the filter has never been replaced or you live or the vehicle has been in an area of alot of mud, snow removal salts,dust or anything that could cause the fittings to become frozen..... in 16 years I have had a couple of tough to get loose filters on the "GM" vehicles so just use caution in this area of maintenance on your vehicle .... note the arrow on the filter that says "FLOW" it's important to get the flow going towards the engine, or the vehicle may not start or will perform poorly if you cant see the arrow on it the "flow" line is the one that curves around and heads towards the engine, you should find the arrow on the new one just fine....

According to my factory service manual the horn relay for a 1989 Chevy Celebrity is located in the "convenience center" which is behind the instrument panel on the left side of the steering wheel. To replace the relay one would simply pull out the old relay and plug in the new relay.

Other than the 1987 and 1988 Eurosport VR versions I am unaware of any Chevy Celebrity with cup holders.

no The Chevy Celebrity 4 cylinder engine doesn't use a timing belt, it uses a timing gear. To replace the gear it is necessary to remove the camshaft from the engine as it is a press job. To remove the camshaft it is necessary to remove the engine from the car.

No, there is no access hole for the fuel pump on a 1989 Chevrolet Celebrity. To change the fuel pump or replace the filter "sock" it is necessary to drop the fuel tank out of the car. I have been tempted to make my own access hole but never have.

My 1987 Chevy Celebrity with 2.8 V6 was doing the same thing. I cured the problem by replacing three dead fuel injectors.
