On the back of the engine (passengers side) directly under the intake manifold By the way, the same is true for the 2002 model; passengers side, directly under the intake manifold
Yea i had a problem with this one...follow the fuel line coming out of the tank the filter will be in front of the tire on the left (if i remember correctly) rear side. Be sure to have a bucket handy it will leak out about 1/2 a litre of gas or so. ANSWER: The filter is actually on the passenger… side, right in front of the rear tire. It's pretty simple to change, and if you want to avoid excess fuel spill, it's easy to depressurize the system. Take out the lower portion of the back seat (it should just pull right up, no tools needed). This will expose the fuel pump access, next disconnect the electrical wire running into the fuel tank to disable the pump. Start the car and let it run until it dies, now you're depressurized. Change the filter, then reconnect the pump (turn the key on for a moment and the system should automatically repressurize). That's it. ( Full Answer )
It is on the driver's side back by the rear wheel. It is a black cilinder like with 3 hoses going into to it. Unless your steering wheel is on the right side then its on the rear of the passenger side just inside the front edge of the rear tire.
I recently had the tranny fluid replaced by my trusted mechanic. He told me there is a replaceable metal screen inside the transmission that would require the trans' to be physicaly removed to be replaced. It wasn't worth the money for me so I didn't have it replaced. RHB 051809 As far as I know, …the Kia Sedona does not have a changeable transmission fluid filter. (I could find nothing to indicate that it has one at all.) Service procedure for the 2002 does not call for a filter to be replaced. I imagine it's the same for the 2003. That is correct! It does not have a filter!!! The Kia sedona Does in fact have a transmission fluid filter. As i have one. it is hard to find as we are still looking for mine. but they wouldn't not have sold me one and the fluid together if there was not one that was to be changed. ours is a twist on. it looks like an oil filter... Yes, the Kia sedona 2002 to 2003 do have 2 filters. One on the outside on top of the engine underneath the cover to the right. And one inside that one does not need to be changed. 2004 and up do not have 2 filters just one insde. ( Full Answer )

Answer . in the gas tank. Answer . you will need to drop your tank to change it. No need to drop tank in some cases as stated above, I have a 2004 Kia Optima EX, 2.7L automatic. There is an access cover behind the back seat in the trunk. Another individual I spoke with said his was located u…nder his back seat. This all depends on engine, year, model.. I also have a 2004 Optima EX w/ 2.7L and I have replaced the fuel pump to address a high rev hesitation problem. As stated above, there is a hatch in the trunk behind the rear seats - remove it and the top of the tank is exposed where the fuel lines go into the tank and down to the pump. I have yet to find the fuel filter for this car. It may be part of the fuel pump package inside the tank, but I am not sure. I bought a vehicle specific replacement fuel filter from Walmart and it resembled a large "in-line" fuel filter and was definitely was not part of the fuel pump package inside the tank. I have not found it under the hood so its got to be between the firewall and the tank somewhere. ( Full Answer )
\n. \n Answer \n. \nimproved section of answer: you have to release the fuel pressure before starting this job.\nyou can open the gas cap for an easier method.\nsome models have a fuel cutt off switch.\n. \nI had a hard time finding it, too. Things to know first: It's about the size of a so…up can, has three fuel lines running into it that have quick-disconnect fittings. This means you have to buy a very cheap, plastic tool to disconnect the lines. Tell the parts store you need the quick-disconnect tool that matches your tubing size on the filter: I found an assortment in a package for about $5. \nNow, jack up the passenger-side of the car. Crawl under below the post that divides passenger front door from back door, and look up. You're looking for a cylinder mounted front-to-back, just inside the edge of the frame. If I remember correctly, you have one tube running into the back (from fuel tank), and two leading out from the front. A one-bolt clamp holds it in place. I found it easier to take the clamp loose work on it. The plastic tool is sort of T-shaped, with the bottom of the T formed by a split tube that connects to a flat disk that is also split. The idea is to hold the tool with the flat disk end toward the filter, and spread the split over the tube: it will slide over the tube end enclose it. You now have a filter at one end, a quick disconnect at the end of your fuel line where it attaches to your filter (metal tubing end of filter), and your tool slipped over the metal tubing between filter and disconnect. Shove the disconnect tool toward the fuel line...it should be possible to force it into the end of the quick disconnect and release it, allowing you to shove the fuel line off. You'll get a bit of gasoline-cologne out of this, but it shouldn't leak much---it's supposed to seal. Now, do the same thing to the remaining two tubes, and your old fuel filter should be completely disconnected. Bolt the new one into the clamp and onto the car....push the three fuel lines back onto the filter, and it's time to crawl back out----you're done. Jack the car back down and grin proudly.

according to local dealer the fuel filter is part of the fuel pump assembly and is not replaced during regular maitenance. It is in the gas tank. Answer . 2002 Kia Optima does not have a fuel filter. Why they sell the part is still up for debate since nobody, including the dealership in my town, …seems to know where the filter is. ( Full Answer )
on a 01 optima its on the bottom of the transmission behind the drip pan (really). likely the same on a 03.
It is on the firewall directly behind the intake. You have to get underneath the car to remove the bottom hose clamp. Other than that it is simple to take off.
Answer . \nI asked the dealer to change the fuel filter on our 2003 KIA Sorento and they said it's inside the tank and never needs to be changed, unless there is a problem. I am not sure if that's true with newer Sorento's.
Answer . \nYou shouldn't have too, but if u find it necessary, i would say 100,000 miles
Answer . Hopefully this helps...not a 2002 though. On a 2001 the fuel filter is under the car on the drivers side below the rear door. There are 3 hoses and they connect with fittings that can be squeezed with pliers to remove. They snap into place on the new filter.. thats it, i had just replac…ed my girlfriends today wow those connectors are weird. One side has red and the other side green those are buttons you squeeze dont use pliers because they might bend and not hold on to the new filter also its a 10mm socket that holds it on you need to bend the brackets a bit.

From what I've been told it is inside the fuel pump in the fuel tank. I have also been told by a couple Kia dealers that it never needs to be replaced unless the pump fails. I just replaced mine for the second time. Sediment builds up and the symptoms are hesitation on acceleration (actually slows …down the more you push the gas pedal) and won't go over 45mph for extended lengths of time. The filter is inside the fuel pump housing and the fuel pump is accessed through the hatch under the rear passenger side seat. It's much easier to replace the whole fuel pump assembly, but if you want to save yourself over $100 you can get the filter separately on line for about a third the cost of the dealership price.

For the 2001 kia optima I have found the oil filter between the front passenger side tire and the engine. You can see it if you turn the wheels all the way to the left, although it helps if the filter cover is a bright color. To change it I had to remove the tire.
Answer The fuel pump is in the gas tank, you'll have to lower the tank and swap it out. 02/05/2011 The fuel pump is actually at the top of the tank. I recently have done this repair myself and you DO NOT have to drop the tank. The fuel pump can be accessed by lowering the back of the back seat. Y…ou will see a black panel behind this in the trunk . Use a screwdriver to open the panel and you will see the pump. remove the two hoses and 6 screws to remove it. ( Full Answer )
How to check a relay swtich . \nRelay switches are typically in the fuse box compartment underneath the hood usually on the driver's side (~not~ the fuse compartment under the dash) You will see a black plastic box. Pull the cover off. On the under side of cover will have a list of what each fu…se, micro relay, and mini relay are for. You will see an entry for the fuel pump relay or possibly just "fuel relay". How to test your relay switch. Some of the relays in the fuse compartment will be exactly the same relay. For instance the horn relay can be (not in all cases)the same type of relay for your fuel pump relay. So if you think you have a bad fuel relay switch... change it with the horn relay switch... then honk your horn. Does it work? (Of course make sure your horn works in the first place). If your horn works with the fuel relay switch substitute... your problem is not with your relay. If your horn does not work.. presto... you have a bad relay. If your relay continues to go burn out... you'll need to find out why. Possibly a bad ground. ( Full Answer )
its not surgery just take the fuel lines off the filter take loose the bolts. put the new one on make sure you look and see which one says in and out. it should be located a few inches away from the back tire.
Answer . \nThere is probably two fuel filters. One is the primary, back in your rear wheel well by the gas tank or follow the gas line to it. The other is the secondary fuel filter, usually found under the hood. Find the fuel line coming through the firewall or from under your vehicle leading… to your engine or fuel injectors.

Usually inside the transmission oil pan, how ever it is not in the same location on a 4 cyn, on a 2004 2.7 V6, the transmission pan is located on the front side of the transmission case between the radiator and the transmission - normally they are located on the bottom of the tranmission case
My Kia Optima 2004 has the filter inside the gas tank. Behind the rear seats, when you fold them forward, you will see an opening to the fuel pump.
Answer . I do not know the exact location but it is relatively simple to locate any vehicle fuel filter by going under car and following fuel line from fuel tank forward. It will be inline with fittings to connect /disconnect.. passenger side rear up above the parking brake cable
Changing the fuel filter on a 2003 Kia Spectra is procedure ofmoderate to easy skill level. First the vehicle must be stopped,engine shut-off, and placed on a vehicle lift or jack-stands. Thefuel 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. TheOE replacement fuel filter for this application is AC Delco #GF894. ( Full Answer )
The fuel filter is located along the frame rail under the vehicle and is accessible only from under the vehicle.
where is the fuel filter located on 2005 kia optima. where is the fuel filter located on 2005 kia optima
it just in front of the rear-right tire under the car it has 3 tubes connected to it buy a replacement and spot the difference
The fuel filter is in the gas tank and normally does not need to be replaced
Its on the drivers side underneath the vehicle.....here is a diy for it. its for a 330ci, but its the same idea basically, and same location http://www.bmw330ci.net/maintenance/fuelfilter.php
It is located in the tank. Fortunately there is an access panel behind the drivers seat. take the cover off and then disconnect the wires and the fuel lines unscrew the flange and out it comes.. by the way the filter and pump are one and the same.
it will be passenger side of engine just a little left of oil filter mounted to inside side of frame/wheel cover,it bacically held on with one screw and 2 hoses. please disconnect battery when doing this,seen to many fires started with dripping gas and dropping a wrench on battery causing spark.
The EGR valve on my 2003 Optima (2.4L) is located basically in the rear of the engine compartment, near the firewall, almost dead center of the car, just below the throttle body. Not sure if it is the same place on the 6 cylinder.
yes there is but look in your car manuel or call the nearest kia dealer to check on types and sizes needed.
They don't have one.. Yeah i know...supposed to have transmission survive every 30,000 miles... Sorry this means drain and replace fluid as there is no filter..
Depends on the oil filter you are looking for ;) They vary quite a bit. And well, you didn't include a year, or model. If you are into FRAM (available most anywhere, including most Walmarts), here's what I came up for the 2008 Kia Optima: EXTRAGUARD PH9688 TOUGHGUARD TG9688
THE OIL FILTER ON MY 2003 KIA RIO IS LOCATED ON THE BACK SIDE OF THE ENGINE JUST OFF TO THE PASSENGER SIDE...
My 2003 KIA Optima car will not start and my battery is drained after charging it... When I tried to start it again I here no clicks or noise....Need to know where is the starter located on the car...
on a jeep wrangler the fuel filter is part of the fuel pressure regulator assembly which is located on the fuel pump module..... the fuel pump module is located on top of the fuel tank.....
\nmost likely above the rear passenger axle, if not follow the fuel line from the tank to thew front. Good luck
I'm almost positive it is in your gas tank. There should be an access door under your back seat.
purge valve is bad causing fuel vapors from tank to go into intake flooding the engine.
It is in the fuel tank. Take out the back seat cushions to gain access to it. Should take about 45 minutes to change it.
If its not on the side rail then its a nonservice fuel filter which means its in the gas tank cost to much just wait till pump goes out if it does?chrysler has n/s fuel filters on a lot of cars,there vans,another way for service dept to make more money ,$500 fuel pumps labor not included..
It's on the outside of the fuel tank. Underneath, left side of rear tire about 1 foot away from the edge. You will have to lift the car up to view/repair.
First I will describe the CMP sensor location, then at the bottom of this post tell you how to get there, ok? The how to get thre directions are from a 2001, but so similar as to be the same. The CMP, or Cam Position Sensor, senses TDC on the number 1 cylinder on the 6 cyl 2.7 Optima and the 4 cyl… 2.4. What this means to you..on the v6 you are going to have to remove the plastic shroud and surge tank from the engine, as the number 1 cyl is the top left facing the engine from the front. Luckily, it is mounted on the cyl head so once you get to it its a piece of cake. One bolt to secure it to the engine and a plug at the other end. While you are in there, replace the surge tank gasket and check all vacuum hoses for leaks or cracking, as this is the best opportunity you will have to do anything under the surge tank. Check the wiring going to your injectors and the connections, pull your PCV valve and clean it with carb cleaner, etc. This is a great time to replace your plugs and wire set if you are going to keep the car, trust me unless you are inclined, you will not want to do this again...not hard, just about 2 hrs the first time. To know you are removing the right part, just search 2003 optima crankshaft pos sensor and you will find some photos. 01)Remove the oil filler cap. 02)Remove the (4) bolts holding the engine cover in place. The front 3 wires and plugs should be accessible at this point. These are the easy ones. Feel free to replace them now. Now for the back 3. In order to get to the back 3 plugs and wires you need to remove the intake manifold (air surge by Kia's phrasing) completely. I thought it was a lengthy process and the dealer explained it would take 3.5 hours of labor by a professional. You will be surprised at how easy this is. 03) Remove the air intake hose from the air filter housing side and the throttle body side. There is a hose which leads to a pipe on the engine. Be sure to remove this on the engine side. There is no clamp on this hose. Place the air hose to the side out of the way. 04) Remove the 2 bolts (should be 10mm) holding the throttle linkage cable brackets on the front side of the engine. 05) Remove the 2 botls (should be 10mm) holding the placement bracket for the breather hose (will be a short foot long hose connecting the front side of the engine to the back side. There are clamps on the hose.) Remove of the hose isn't necessary but it does get it out of the way so I would recommend removing the hose as well. 06) Remove the 3 bolts on the front of the intake manifold. 12mm 07) Remove the 2 longer bolts from the top of the intake manifold 12mm 08) remove the two nuts on the outer ends of the intake manifold. 12mm. Also ensure the electrical connectors on the throttle body housing are disconnected, there should be 2. Now here's where it gets tricky. The following is all done on the back side of the manifold/throttle body linkage area. 09) On the rear passenger side of the intake manifold there is a bolt, 10mm. Remove it. This will probably also have a grounded line attached to it. this is a bracket for some fuel hoses. 10) Below that you will find a 12mm bolt, remember it but don't remove it just yet. 11) There are 2 bolts holding the throttle body linkage bracket. Remove those and place the linkage out of the way. Next part gets kind of tight. 12) The 12mm bolt you found before, remove it. Directly in line with that bolt going from passenger side to driver side should be 2 more bolts evenly spaced. You will need to remove these bolts. Best way for me for the 2 other bolts was to work from the driver side as it provided more room. Once those bolts are removed, the intake manifold should come right off. Place it to the side, replace your plugs and wires and installation is opposite of removal. ( Full Answer )
inside the fuel tank. on the outside there is a metal plate with bolts attached too it be very carefull as they break off very easy and are hard too get out of the bottom of the tank
you just replace it. I'm only seven years old how will I answer such a question ?
