fuel filter

Asked by Sep 16, 2013 at 06:03 PM about the 2002 Lexus GS 300 RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi all - I am a relatively new owner (6 mos) of a 2002 GS300 with 75K.  Although milae is low she has spent the past 7 yrs in the NYC boroughs.  It has seen its share of potholes and the bumpers have done a lot of kissing.

Here’s my issue.... she hesitates when accelerating and is not consistent when traveling up steady inclines.  I think it could be a fuel delivery problem.  

I have tried the as treatments, cleaned the air filter and scanned for trouble codes.  At this point, outside of plugs, I believe it could possibly be the fuel filter.

• Can anyone tell me details about the location and changing the fuel filter?? any firsthand stories or nightmares to share??

• How about fuel line clips, like on the old (1990-98+) American GM Buicks to deal with..how about special tools?  

• Should I tackle myself or bring to mechanic?

Thanks in advance.

~ Matt
