Where are the fuel pump and fuel filter located?



The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. The fuel filter is located at the bottom of the  pump(see diagram). Some vehicles also have an inline fuel filter. The inline fuel filter is usually located between the fuel tank and the engine. Most often the fuel filter in mounted on the frame rail under the vehicle.


Fuel Pump Removal & Installation

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Safely relieve the fuel pressure within the fuel system. Drain the fuel from the tank, then remove the fuel tank.

The electric fuel pump has a filter; check it for any clogging or tears

  1. Remove the gasket from the bracket.
  2. Remove the two nuts and then disconnect the wires at the fuel pump.
  3. Pull the fuel pump out of the lower side of the bracket. Disconnect the pump from the fuel hose.
  4. Using a small screwdriver, remove the retaining clip that holds the fuel filter on the bottom of the  pump.
  5. Remove the fuel filter from the pump.

To reassemble and install, reverse procedure using new clip and gasket.

Fuel Pump Replacement Kit

I have taken the time to look up the replacement fuel pump and filter kit and double checked to insure a proper fit. Complete kit for under $60 includes shipping.

What the auto repair manuals don’t tell you about replacing the fuel pump.

Once the fuel pump and or fuel filter are replaced the fuel system needs to be primed. A few simple steps will have your fuel system primed in no time. Cycle the ignition switch on and off. Hold for 5 seconds between on and off. This allows the pump to run long enough to build pressure in the fuel system. The fuel injectors will not fire correctly without adequate fuel pressure.

2002 Toyota Camry
I am trying to replace all of the exhaust sensors on my 2002 Toyota Camry 3.0 6 cyl. SE model (California emissions) including the air fuel ratio sensor and oxygen sensors. I have replaced 3 of the 4 sensors. I do not know the location of the 4th sensor nor do I know if it can be replaced from the top of the car (like the air fuel ratio sensor you can see from the top, or is it located underneath? I have replaced the air fuel ratio sensor which is the one easily visible looking at the engine to the right. The other 2 you can see the connectors from the front of the engine looking down but you remove them from the bottom of the car toward the front of the car underneath . I don’t know where the 4th one is and most important, how do I replace it from the top? underneath? toward the front? in the back? Thanks, Frank


According to the parts store this vehicle has one air fuel ratio sensor and two oxygen sensors. So if you have replaced all three, your done or are we. Looking at the engine compartment diagram it would appear as though there are four sensors, two A/F sensors and two O2 Sensors. On most v6 engines there are 2 upstream(before the catalytic converter) and one downstream(after the convertor).

I want to know if I can put on tires that are one size wider and one size taller than stock? The clearance would help me on the roads I travel. Thanks for any response. Boo

We have had to start the car by turning the steering wheel as if it’s locked. It clicks like its a dead battery or alternator, but when we crank the wheel while turning the key it starts! It’s getting worse, ie: from once in a while to every time we start it now. Where do we start, could be a wire twisted or broke??

I seem to have lost power. I notice the lack of power on hills and the pick up does not seem as good as it used to be. The car runs OK even with a ton of sand or gravel in the back but when I tow a caravan the car overheats after about 30 miles/50 kilometres and on hills quicker. On start up I get some black smoke, I have had the injectors serviced that did improve the smoke on start up. If it was a petrol engine I would be more sure diagnosing the problem but with diesel’s I don’t have enough experience to be confident of a diagnosis.
Your help would be greatly appreciated, Thank you

What would cause the back right wheel to be angled in slightly on top? The opposite wheel is fine. The car drives fine with a slight pull to the right, and it does need new rear shocks.
