I would like to know the location of the fuel filter on a toyota camry SE with the 2.4L engine. Also, would a dirty filter cause a " #3 misfire" code to show up on tester? Engine began running rough couple days after putting 1/2 tank of gas into it which was siphoned from another vehicle we were dropping the fuel tank on to change fuel pump. Spark plugs have been replaced [ iridium plugs ] but problem still exists
Do you
have the same problem?

No fuel filter will not cause this. The tank does not have to be dropped. You can access from under the back seat.

Fuel filter is on drivers front under the hood down low by the left front tire. Toyota does not reccomend replacement of the filter.

Where is the fuel filter located and how many are there? Would a plugged fuel filter cause the engine compression to guild-up and glow off the vacuum line that goes into the sensor on the top of the engine?

It is near the fuel tank (driver's side I believe). Shouldn't be too hard to replace.

Hi,

I am living in Saudi Arabia-Jeddah, having 2006 Camry.
It started some unusual small Pauses / jerks during the low speed. Took to the mechanic who advised to bring the Fuel Filter and will change it. I believe it should be something very difficult sp I decided to check with you whether I can do it or not. By the way I am an electrical Engineer and most of the mechanical tools and instruments are not unknown to me. Please guide me and I am sure I can do it easily.

Regards
