    Where is the fuel filter located on it and where can I purchase a repair manual and owners manual for it? Thanks.
    The engine light comes on. Had the distributor worked on. Had the plugs replaced. It runs a bit rough and mechanic is saying it's the fuel filter now.

      My info says it is underhood, rear engine area, firewall, toward the passenger side from master cylinder.

      As far as repair manual, you can try ebay. You can also type your year--make--model into search box and add repair manual, see if anything pops up. Autozone has free repair info, just register your vehicle, it's free.

    Where is fuel filter located in the engine and where can I purchase a mechanic's manual for it?
    It's been running rough. Took it to mechanic and they said it was the distributor. Had that fixed. Had plugs changed. It runs rough still and engine light comes on and now they say it's fuel filter.

    the car has 205000 miles on it. the check engine light flashes if the misfires are bad enough. the check engine light is on now and diagnosis yields a P0300 code (random engine misfires) I inspected the plugs and the upstream O2 sensor. the 6 mth old plugs and ...

      For the misfires

      It may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

      Faulty spark plug or wire
      Faulty coil (pack)
      Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
      Faulty fuel injector
      Burned exhaust valve
      Faulty catalytic converter(s)
      Running out of fuel
      Poor compression
      Defective computer
      Possible Solutions

      If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.

      If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.

    What is wrong with my engine?
    When at a stop or slowing down, the RPM fluctuates from 0 to 1 until i go again. Sometimes it doesnt go back to 1 it just dies. Then i have to put it in park, and restart the car. Sometimes it takes a little while to start.

    My car won't start. I've tested the battery it is good. I have tested the starter it is good. all
    I have checked the battery cables and all of the connections. they are fine, clean, and tight. whenever my wife turns the key, I can hear the the starter relay contacting. but the starter won't turn over, it doesn't even try.

    Fuel pump replacement
    when I replaced the "in tank" fuel pump it was necessary to splice the wiring. the original splice had heat shrink tubing on the splice with no "butt connector". I spliced the connection with a "butt connector" and electrical tape. is it safe to use electrical ...

      No not in that under vehicle environment

      You need to solder & then heat shrink a new
      connector to the original factory wire harness

      Then you just plug it into the new fuel pump
      as the vehicle was originally build

      Sloppy solder,electrical tape,etc will just
      just corroded & cause problems from water
      salt & such under the car

      There is no slicing of fuel pumps,O2 sensors
      or any vehicle wiring except to repair someones
      butchered work before you got the car

      apparently I didn't convey the question correctly. the entire assembly is inside the fuel tank as is the original wiring. the fuel pump is original AND is spliced from the factory due to the wire splitting on one side of the splice. the original splice is only connected with a crimp connector and then heat shrink tubing. there is also the fuel level sending unit that is attached to the fuel pump assembly and is ALSO submerged in the gas. it has factory uncovered soldered connections
