Default DIY fuel pump strainer/pre-filter replacement

Hey guys, its been a while since ive posted or anything but i was doing this today trying to troubleshoot a little and figured id go ahead and make a writeup, enjoy! (note; rear seats have to be removed, which i forgot to take pics of but its easy)

Tools needed; 10mm (6 point if you can) socket and ratchetphillips screwdriver, small flat head screwdriver, and some sort of pliers

Ok in the first pic you undo the 4 screws for the tank access cover.

Now slide the rubber pump connector cover back and unplug it. Its also a good idea to spray some rust penetrant on the 6 bolts that hold the pump unit in. If you dont you take a chance of breaking a stud when you take them out because they do rust. If that happens you may end up needing a new tank.

Once thats done take the pliers and slide the clamp back undo that line and the other line has quick locks, just squeeze them and slide off. Take caution and make sure the o-ring doesnt slide off the connector in that line when you do this (it shouldnt, but just noting that it does have one in it). After both lines are off, start taking the 6 pump unit nuts off. If you use a 12 point you run a chance of rounding them off, theyre somewhat soft.

As you see in this pic its kind of side ways so you will have to pull it out at an angle.

The screen is held on by a little clip and just by the way it sits in its cradle so you have to pull it out of its cradle.

Heres the little clip you have to take off, just use a really small flat head or a knife and pry it off. then gently pull the screen down and off

After that, put the new one on and put the little clip and reverse this procedure for installation.

Nice write up.

Did the filter replacement solve a problem or was it just maintenance?

Where'd you buy the filter?

Thanks! Um, its a mix of trouble shooting and maintenance really. i have a "power" problem so to say thats somewhat similar to what ive had a del sol and the strainer was the root problem. I figured id at least look at it and if youre going to do all that you might as well change it. You can get it at your local parts store, i got mine from advanced auto for $21. I also wanted to see my tank just to know what it looked like. Heres on from my del sol where the problem was strainer, it would cut out at random times in certain load situations, like really bad. It was a fuel pressure problem needless to say.

well that last pic was from my previous del sol with 370k miles on it, the first owner got it from hagerstown, MD. So who knows how long that was up north, that probably contributed to it. Aside, from that it couldve had water in it easily as old as it was, and with all that age its bound to rust
