a fuel filter can cause a sluggish running symptom, but it typically doesn't cause excessive fuel consumption.
if you are going to change the fuel filter, it is located under the vehicle near the fuel tank.
But your problem sounds like it could be more complicated.
IMPORTANT! If your going to change your fuel filter, remember to release and remove the gas cap to your gas tank.answer
sounds very similar to a problem i had, the car would idle rough and stall as soon as you hit the gas would also run very sluggish if you got it moving found out it was a clogged fuel filter
also, as stated in this question i did notice the car used a large amont of gas during this time (even tho it was running lean)
where is the fuel filter located on a 2003 Pontiac sunfire
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.
Under the car by the fuel tank
it at the back of your gas tank
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.
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
I've never had to change mine, but it's an in-line filter located near the gas tank.
Near the gas tank. It's an in-line filter.
Look under the vehicle - follow the fuel line from the tankRemove clamps and support to replace
Follow the fuel lines forward to the engine from the fuel tank. Somewhere on the line you will find the fuel filter.
Try back near the fuel tank. if it is the same as my sunfire it is right behind the gas tank.
I recommend changing it every 50,000 miles unless it is a permanent filter that requires no maintenance.
under the car right beside the gas tank
Perhaps a badly clogged fuel filter?
98 Pontiac Sunfire 2.2L is one it fits
No, not just because you ran out of gas but you should replace the fuel filter.
how do i chanfe the fule filter on a 99 Pontiac grand am
The fuel filter, or the air filter?Are you looking for a part number? I'd check with my local parts store.FriPilot
Not sure what is wrong with your car but if your fuel pump is not working check your fuse for your fuel pump. check your fuel pump relay on your firewall. low or no fuel presser change your filter.
probably fuel filter or a simple tune up
It's underneath the car in the rear. Look just ahead of the fuel tank on the passenger side.
Near the rear of the vehicle up near the gas tank; RELIEVE FUEL PRESSURE FIRST BEFORE REMOVING THE FILTER!!!
rear end of car over the rear axle support beam just rear of fuel tank
Where is the fuel idle control valve for a 2002 Pontiac Sunfire
on the right side of the car, looking at it from the rear, underneath the care on the fuel line running into the gas tank.
