If it has not been changed, & is the original.

I suggest that you take it into a garage.

'99 had from the factory: PITA to get it off (No easy to release green clip.)

& if you do try to do it yourself: Don't break any fuel lines.

Let me get this straight...

let me see if i understand this correctly.

on the V6 models, the best way to relieve fuel pressure is to bleed it from the fuel rail. i can't pull the fuel pump relay, start the car, and purge the system cuz there's still pressure in the lines? i don't want to get blasted when i take the filter off.

also i am going to assume that i should not buy a bosch filter.

the best way to relieve the pressure is at the schrader (sp?) valve.. it's really not that difficult to do, just like letting air out of a tire.. and you wont get blasted when removing the filter..

i don't know about the bosch filter.. why would you assume not to buy one? i just got a duralast one from autozone.. works fine for me.. there is always delco too..

I just changed the fuel filter on my Sunfire today and i used the advice from this forum and it worked perfectly , i pushed on both sides and i couldnt believe it , it popped off , getting the other end off was the problem cause it was rusted on so it took me awhile to get it off, so putting it back together was easy , just snap the green clip back on and away you go.

I changed my fuel filter about 2 years ago and I remember just breaking that green clip off because the plastic was so fragile. I never bothered with getting a new one and its been fine since... no leaks, no problems. Anyone else just break theirs off and just leave it????

I just changed the fuel filter on my '99 GAGT. Like everyone has said here it has the Black PITA fitting on one side. To remove the fuel Filter, I took off the side with the nut first (after relieving the pressure on the fuel lines)and drained the fuel filter. To remove the side with the black plastic fitting you need to use AC and Fuel line tool kit. I rented these from the local Checker auto parts store. The problem with the AC and Fuel line tool kit is the tool to remove the fitting is too long to work on the fuel filter. So I used a sawzall and cut the metal tube on the side of the fuel filter as close to the fuel filter as I could, than the tool worked perfectly and you could easily pull the remaining tube out of the fitting. The new filter just pops into the fitting and you are good to go!

Don't use a Saws-All or any other power tool.

You have gas fumes. You have sparks from the brushes in the electric motor.

You have been warned.

Well Now I am soo glad I read this AFTER I did it. hahaha, soo I did not run all the fuel out i did however release the pressure from the shrader valve. I had gas all over me. It spit like a damn camel with chewing tobacco in its mouth. I had the green clip on my 01, IIRC if it wasn't green it was designed the same way, it was easy, open the one end the took a screw driver and pried it up.

Next time I may just pull the relay and run my car and be a smart person about it.

Does anyone know where you can buy the J 37088-A quick disconnect tool.

I have a 2000 Grand Am GT. The shop manual calls for that tool to remove the metal fittings and the pictures might look like the "evil" green clip for the plastic connections. I haven't looked under the car yet to see exactly what is there.

Here's a pic from alldata that might help you guys out. It looks like the black part that you need to press together to get your filter out. I wish I would have saw this earlier because those clips are broken now . Not sure how I'm going to get the filter out now.

I know this thread is old, but I would like to thank all of you for your input. These instructions assisted me in changing my fuel filter on my own for the first time. Beats paying someone 50bux to do something I can do myself, and where the part only costs 13bux.

Okay. So I have noticed after reading this entire thread that NO ONE KNOWS HOW TO GET A FUEL FILTER OFF OF A 99-00 GAGT.


I BROKE EVERYONE SINGLE PIECE OFF OF THE BLACK PIECE AND I THINK I F**KED MY SELF UP.

CAN ANYONE BE STRAIGHT FORWARD AND JUST SAY HOW YOU DO IT. IN ONE SINGLE POST.

IM ABOUT READY TO BURN THIS DAMN CAR! EVERYTHING BROKE AT ONCE AND I NEED TO DO THIS TODAY BEFORE NIGHT.

PLEASE SOMEONE ACTUALLY BE OF SOME SORT OF HELP FOR US 99 OWNERS
