Fuel filter????

Where is it located???? How hard is it to replace???? Just hit 125,000 miles and my xb just started to spit and sputter when i accelerate then it runs fine. The check engine light doesn't come on and i just changed the plugs. Also, it idles at 500 rpms. Please, help!!!!! Just happened on my way home from work tonight. So, need to fix the problem tomorrow???? Thank's..... jay

When to the dealership for the parts already. They had to order them but i'll get it early tomorrow thoe. $59.94 for everything.... Not, bad for having my xb for almost 4 years now and this is the first real repair i've had to do. I put about 95,000 miles on the car since i've owed it. I'll update when i get everything fixed????

Re: Fuel filter????

the fuel filter is inside the gas tank, youll have to remove the back seat to get to the access panel and remove the fuel pump assembly to get to it, there is a thread on here somewhere with instructions. there is also an o ring u have to be very careful about losing or damaging during the process. ill see if i can find the trhead and post a link

Re: Fuel filter????

Update...... Well, i spend about an hour and half to replace the fuel filter. Drum roll please..... NO DICE!!!!! Still running like Sh#t!!!!! My 3 dash lights came on and drove to autozone where they ran a code scanner thingy. Troubleshooting code: P0301 CYL. 1 misfire detected..... $112 for a new coil pack. When i took the old coil pack out there was water and rusty powder on it. Just glad it was an easy fix!!!! "jay"

After taking a better look you can see the gap between the oil cap and plastic engine cover and thats where the #1 cyl. is. I guess with all the driving i do and the rainy season in south florida it got water down in the spark plug area????

That engine cover is not there to do anything but be pretty. It's not any sort of seal to your head cover. Each coil pack has an o-ring that has to seat when you install it to keep moisture out of the spark plug well. Go back and make sure yours sealed when you put it in or you'll have this problem again.

That sucks about where the fuel filter is though...uuuuggghhhh!

Have you changed your plugs? It looks like it's about that time.

Re: Fuel filter????

also try a little plug grease when you install your coils. helps keep out the moisture.
