go 2 www.kiatechinfo.com & is supposed 2 b FREE. Kia are now charging for the use of this site. Any help with Kia's would now be greatly appreciated. I too am thinking of changing fuel filter and need some help.
Changing the fuel filter on a 2003 Kia Spectra is procedure of moderate to easy skill level. First the vehicle must be stopped, engine shut-off, and placed on a vehicle lift or jack-stands. The fuel filter is located under the car and in front of the fuel tank. The canister in-line filter can be screwed off with a wrench. The OE replacement fuel filter for this application is AC Delco #GF894.
2005 Kia Spectra does not contain a external fuel filter but rather has a fuel filter in the fuel pump it self. The filter in the pump is said to be a lifetime filter, but can be replaced if desired. The only time to replace the filter is if the pump itself is being replaced or serviced, otherwise its not necessary to replace
