The fuel filter on carburetor and injector engines

At the left – the fuel filter on carburetor engines.

On the right – the fuel filter on injector engines.

The fuel filter on engines of 2,6 l

The fuel filter is specified by an arrow.

On carburetor engines the filter is mounted on a frame channel consistently with a gasoline pipe line and fastens to hoses collars.

On injector engines the filter of a high pressure which is also mounted on a channel of a frame is applied and is included in the highway through cap the union.

Before removal of the filter execute a decompression of fuel system (see subsection 8.2.1). In case of strong pollution of the filter remove and wash out a tank. For access to filters it is recommended to lift the car.



Scheme of connection of a hose

The hose should come for a branch pipe (it is specified by an arrow) not less than on 25 mm.

1. Disconnect the battery from weight.
2. Weaken collars.
3. Disconnect hoses and get the filter from an arm.
4. Check a condition of hoses, if necessary replace.
5. Installation is carried out upside-down. Attach hoses in a demanded order.


On a part of cars the hatch of the fuel pump is provided, for access to which it is necessary to remove a rug in a cargo compartment and a floor covering. Remove the hatch, disconnect the socket and having started the engine, develop the fuel rest. After these actions pressure in fuel system will go down.

Hatch of the fuel pump


1. Execute a decompression (see subsection 8.2.1).
2. Disconnect the battery from weight.
3. Remove the air filter.
4. Unscrew bolts of unions and disconnect hoses.
5. Unscrew a bolt of fastening and remove the filter.
6. Installation is carried out upside-down. Tighten bolts of unions of final and inlet hoses with the moment of 24-34 and 34 N of m respectively.


The replaceable element of the fuel filter is established in a tank which is mounted in a motor compartment.

4. Settler (moisture separator)

5. Water level sensor

6. A filtering element

Correct provision of a collar

1. Designate and disconnect from a tank with the filter sockets.
2. Spread rags, carefully disconnect hoses.
3. Unscrew bolts of fastening and remove a filter tank.
4. Remove from a tank an arm and a guard.
5. By hand turn out the filter from a tank. Turn out from a filtering element the sensor of a water level and a cap.
6. It is recommended to replace filtering element. It is possible to be limited to its careful washing in kerosene.

7. Installation is carried out upside-down. Tighten the sensor of a water level and a cap with the moment of 9 and 4 N of m respectively. Remove air from system in the following order:

  – release a stopper for air removal;
  – turn out a cap of the lever of the pump of manual pumping and extend the lever;
  – pump up fuel before disappearance of vials of air, tighten a stopper;
  – continue to pump up fuel until then does not begin rigidity of a course of the lever yet be felt;
  – move and combine the lever.

Moisture removal from the fuel filter of a diesel engine

At fire of a control lamp of a water level in a settler it is necessary to remove moisture from the fuel filter.

Moisture removal from the fuel filter of a diesel engine


1. Unscrew a drain stopper in the lower part of the filter.



2. Turn out a cap of the lever of the pump of manual pumping and extend the lever.

3. Continue to pump up fuel until then water will not cease to leave yet.
4. Move and combine the lever.
