Im going to use my 20+ years experience restoring and repairing cars and trucks like this to show you the correct way to install parts from The right parts installed correctly, that"s going to save you time and money. Thank you and enjoy the video.In this video we"ll be replacing the fuel filter on this 1997 Pontiac Sunfire, same as any "95 to "05 Cavalier or Sunfire. The only tools you"ll need are 16 mm and 19 mm wrenches or two adjustable wrenches.To replace the fuel filter, you"re going to need to start in underneath your car. It"s located right here above the rear axle. There"s the wheel and this right here is the fuel filter.The first thing you"re going to want to do is use some penetrating oil and really spray that down and that down. This nut here is a 16 mm. I believe the filter is probably about a 20 or 21 mm. We"ll just use an adjustable wrench. Put it on there and try and get these apart. Be careful because once you start getting this apart, you could see some gas leaking out. The other thing is to be careful and make sure that you"re pulling on this wrench and that you"re not twisting the fuel line as well, otherwise, you"ll have to replace the fuel line. It"s coming apart okay. Now you can pull that line out. You can see some gas that"s starting to come down. You want to have a catch basin underneath. What you"re going to need to do is pry the clip off here. This is a flexible wand, so you want to be careful still. There"s some more gas coming out. Finish taking this apart. Dump the rest of the gas out of here. Now you twist and pull the filter from the other hose. The new ones have a little bit of a different style clamp. What I do is I actually pull it off the filter. As you can see, you take the clip off the replacement and there"s an O-ring inside this housing and the filter goes in there. Put the filter into the clamp and it will slide a little bit. Again, 16 mm or adjustable. Tighten the nuts up. You want to get it good and tight. Turn your key on, which will turn the pump on and you can test to make sure nothing"s leaking.We hope this helps you out.
