There is a filter on the bottom of the fuel pump. You should start your car and then unplug the wiring harness that you see under the rear seat cushion, the car will die after a few seconds. Then turn your key off. What this does is relieve the fuel pressure. You then can disconnect both of the fuel lines. Have a couple of plugs handy to place over the 2 ports that the lines connect too. Then remove the screws that fasten the fuel access port. You can then carefully lift it out of the tank, your fuel pump is attached to this port. On the bottom of the fuel pump you will see a small screened sack, that is the filter. There is also a filter on the fire wall in the engine compartment, at least that is where it is on a 4 cylinder.

The in tank filter is one that most people overlook. It is easy to replace just make sure that the car is well ventilated while you are working and don't smoke while doing the job. You just need to take your time so as not to damage the float assembly that is also attached. After you remove all the screws from the top you just slowly raise it out of the tank, you may have to rotate it a little to get everything out, change the filter and replace everything back the way you removed it.

Sugar will not turn to sluge or 'cement' in your gas tank. It will however block your fuel injectors and fuel filter. Replace the fuel injectors or clean them and replace your fuel filter. You may have to replace your fuel filter a few times. If you can, take your gas tank out and wash it with water.

The Mazda 323 fuel filter is located in the fuel tank. The fuel tank will need to be drained in order to change the fuel filter.

It is up above the rear axle housing. It looks like a bear to get to, but isn't too hard to replace.

To replace the fuel filter in a 1999 Mazda 626 V6 you will first need to located the fuel filter. Open the hood of the vehicle and look for a silver round object near the engine. This is the fuel filter. To remove it, simply remove the air intake parts on top of it and then slide the clamp away from the fuel lines. The filter sits in a small bracket and can be easily removed.

The only fuel filter on the 1999 Protege is a "sock" on the fuel pump pickup tube inside the gas tank. The sock can't be replaced seperately from Mazda, you have to replace the fuel pump which does not include the sending unit.
