1988 Jeep YJ

Where's my fuel filter? I need to replace it but I can't remember where it is.

Is it the big cylinder with one hose on one side and one on the other?
Because I got a small silver one from O'riley's with one port on one side and two on the other..

You must have been taken care of by the young guy. I have a friend that tells me whenever you go to the parts store find the oldest coot in the store to help you. The older the better cause they know everything about these girls we drive.

very true statement! I worked at an auto parts store when I was younger and I didn't know much at all about working on cars back then, probably had a few people like you cuss me when they got home too...lol

the original filter for the 4.2 has 3 ports, the single port went to the carb. on the inlet side the center port went to the pump, the outer port is a return line to the fuel tank. the parts guy gave you the correct filter.
if you have a 4 cyl. the filter is located on the frame near the fuel tank.

The original question asked "Is it the big cylinder with one hose on one side and one on the other? ". I assumed he was looking at the engine when he asked his question and I answered accordingly. Thanks Roady always more to learn. But I stand by using 'the old guy" tip

In my opinion that is one of the things wrong in this country..lazy parents are not snatching their lazy kids up and teaching them anything anymore.I knew what a fuel filter was by the time I was about 10 at least,as did my son and now my grandsons..I had one of my grandsons change one out for me recently and he is only 12.

Yeah, I know what a fuel filter is, I just bought a jeep that was rigged to run, not to run right. So, thanks for being judge mental but how bout before finger pointing at 19 year olds that had one car before and their parents, you know the whole story? And to expand on your "what's wrong with the country" comment; it's your opinion to say that, but it's also mine to say your an ignorant and arrogant jackass who should learn how to use commas, periods, ellipses, and capitalization correctly before jumping to conclusions and calling out my parents.

My comments were pointed at the condition of this country overall. At 19 I was a TD2,maintenance shift supervisor on computer controlled flight simulators,nam era vet in the U.S.Navy and painting cars on the side because military pay was shit.Prior to that,I grew up working in the fields,operating and repairing farm equipment.I pulled and put trannys at a transmission shop,built carbs and did tune ups at an automotive center and welded for a mobile home manufacturer..that is what I had done at 19 instead of learning how to write properly.That is what I was talking about in the big difference in this country.Other than their formal education,most kids are being taught very little these days.

Son you just raised the art of 'douchebaggery' to new heights on this Forum. No one was ever talking about your parents. But since you decided to bring them into the conversation I will add its obvious they taught you nothing about fuel filters, respect or learning to keep your mouth shut until you know what you are talking about. Grow up you sensitive little boy.

This. This is all it takes to respond to the question. Not everyone knows everything about all year YJ's. Does it really matter if they know or don't know where a YJ fuel filter is. Hence, being able to ask on a forum and get the correct information.

Next time consider adding the letter 'G' at the end of 'givin'. Your parents wouldnt want you to look like 'an ignorant and arrogant jackass who should learn how to use commas, periods, ellipses, and capitalization correctly'.

I am guilty as charged.The stupidity ( just in my opinion) of the question just brought to my mind the condition of this country and a lot of the reason why.I should have stuck to the subject matter and not gone off on a tangent.I apologize for that and my lack of proper writing skills.I just hope that on the next jeep I build that I don't get confused on where the comma goes.

Yes you are the voice of reason and I finally agree. Positions have been clearly stated on both sides with no sense beating it to death any more. Thanks for ending this mess.
