The fuel filter is located on the passenger side frame rail approximately halfway up the van there is an exhaust shield right in front of it so it is hard to see. Just follow the fuel lines from the tank and you will find it. It is connected with short pieces of rubber line and hose clamps so it is an easy one to change.

The in-line fuel filter is found along the right side frame rail between the fuel tank and engine.

On my 1999 3L it is located on top of the gas tank, you have some room above tank to remove it without lowering the tank, Hope this helps.

The fuel filters on these vans are above the gas tank. You'll need to lower the tank low enough to gain access to the filter.

I have a 93 dodge grand caravan 3.3L 222k miles that up until last week ran like a top. Last week on highway one afternoon began lurching suddenly, throttling down not up on acceleration, then lurching into gear, then out, and so on. Thought the dreaded tranny death had finally come but took it to mechanic who replaced sparks and cleaned throttle and suggested possible water in fuel, to use high octane. The sparks seem to actually fix it which suggested not tranny, but a few days later it was back, the chugging and breaking down on the road thing, popping sound, slowing to a crawl, holding up traffic, hobbling it home to get it worked on. I am told by autozone that possible fuel filter or more likely since intermittent a clogged fuel injector (both of which they tell me are easily replaced). However I am unable to find the filter under the car to replace it! Something tells me this may be more serious and I notice elsewhere mention of ignition, battery terminals, computer elements, etc.

Any help with locating/installing the fuel filter just in case that is all there is to it?

Any experience/ideas re what the prob may be? The car has been well maintained and runs beautiful.

Ran beautifully that is before I probably broke it.

TIA

Engine Performance problem
1994 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 90000+ miles

Hey all,
I bought this caravan for dirt cheap. Now im finding out why. The van runs great I've change the O2 sensor awhile ago but my problem now is maintaining good accelration. When the engine runs for about 10 minutes I begin to notice my accelarator becomes lighter and I don't catch enough power when pressing down on it.

I have a feeling it's the fuel filter because my start ups are easy even under bad weather. (So I dont think it's the fuel pump) When I stop driving after 15minutes or so I put the car in park and the van sounds like its about to stall it suddenly sounds quiet then I hear a high revving and then my engine goes back to normal idling. Help me PLEASE!

Hi there,

First thing first, change the fuel filter and check the fuel delivery volume and pressure. Do this first.
