Question fuel filter replacement

Where is the fuel filter on a 1999 Oldsmobile Cutlass and how is it replaced?

Usually in line and under the car's unibody/chassis.

Follow the lines coming out of the fuel tank and look for a beer can sized canister that probably says "Delphi" or "AC Delco" on it.

Go to the parts store and get the new filter so you know what you are looking for. Some newer filters have quick connects and require a special tool to disengage. Older GMs have threaded fittings, it all depends.

Be sure to look at the new filter. It should have some instructions in the box on how to disconnect/reconnect the filter. If it does use the quick connections you may need a special tool to remove it with. A good parts store will this tool. You may be able to rent it of purchase a cheaper model.

Be sure that the engine and exhaust system are cool before you attempt changing the old flilter. Be aware that there will be more pressure on the lines and filter if the car is fuel injected. An easy way to depressure the line is to remove the fuel pump relay and try to start the car.

Bob,

What was the resolve with your mixed brake fluid issue? What was the fix/resolution?

I'm curious to see what that turned out to be.
