Pictures of how I replaced the old clogged up fuel filter on my 87-95 Nissan Pathfinder.
But first, lets pay some bills:
There's the fuel filter. I changed it. Yep. That's about it, really.
- Next I sold out to make 02¢
so I can fulfill my lifelong dream of owning a 1986 944 with blown head gaskets.
But no minivans!
- Then I finished my beer.
I went on a trip to Baja. While there I bought gas. I am told Pemex gas is not as clean as gas in the U. S. of A., and can clog your filters and injectors. I am not entirely sure this is true, but I had really bad gas mileage and I was desperate. I did not notice any improvement in gas mileage from replacing the fuel filter. I now realize I was getting bad gas mileage because I was, during the entire trip, driving a Pathfinder.
To change the fuel filter, I am told you must remove the fuel pump fuse and try to start the car until the pressure in the fuel line drops. I am told you must wear safety goggles and gloves. I am told you must put rags around the hoses and a cup under the hoses to catch the escaping fuel. I am told you must be passingly sober. I am told you must not, under any circumstances, be enjoying a relaxing smoke.
Sorry it has taken so long to write this up. I only last week got the bandages off.
Good luck and don't sue me,
