Fuel Filter
Do not smoke while working on fuel sys-
tem. Keep open flame away from your work area.
The fuel filter should be replaced every 4 years or 60,000
miles (96,000 km), whichever comes first, or whenever
the fuel pressure drops below the specified value [324 –
363 kPa (3.3 – 3.7 kgf/cm2, 47 – 53 psi) with the fuel pres-
sure regulator vacuum hose disconnected] after making
sure that the fuel pump and the fuel pressure regulator
are OK.
1. Place a shop towel under and around the fuel filter.
2. Relieve fuel pressure (see page 11-132).
3. Remove the 12 mm banjo bolt and the fuel feed
pipe from the filter.
4. Remove the fuel filter clamp and fuel filter.
5. When assembling, use new washers as shown.
