1999 breeze

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have a '99 Breeze with the 2.4 in it. I figure I should chance the gas filter, as it has never been changed. The car had 44k on it. Yes 44k. What I found was that I would have to take the gas tank out to get to the filter. Is there another way?

Thanks

It seems like the fuel pump sits at an angle in the fuel tank and the fittings are accessible without removing the tank or the straps can be loosened and the tank lowered enough to get the lines off without removing the tank.

I just made a phone call to a friend of mine who is a drivability mechanic up at the local Chrysler garage. He said on this model, the fuel filter is external and located by one of the hold down straps for the tank. I know most late Chrysler’s are a sock style in the tank and was not sure about this model year. I had to call him for other reasons, but figured I would ask him while I had him on the phone.

I would double check before bringing the fuel tank down. I am sure there is a sock/pick screen in tank also, but this does not require any service unless fuel pump is being replaced.

Yup, I'm positive its external. It should have two plastic lines that connect to the fittings on the fuel pump module and one fitting for the fuel line that goes to the motor.

Ya, if my minds eye is right on, these lines are longer, have some pre-bends in them and are black. The filter is a silver canister attached to the black lines.
