Anybody know where the fuel filter is for the 2000 Metro 1.3? They don't sell one at Autozone.com so I'm assuming it's in the gas tank or something weird.

you drop the tank and remove the fuel door, or hatch cover, and pull the pump and sending unit out. there you will find the fuel filter.

personally, i think that's a bit of jacked up chevy engineering that i'll change on my wife's 2000 car when it becomes time. i'll switch it over to a frame mounted external rotary pump, an externally mounted filter, and a pickup tube with a sock filter. i can pick that stuff up at the local "race car" shop for about half of what a dealer wants for the oem pump.

I had the pump out of my '98 and there is no filter, just a pick up screen. They don't list a fuel filter at any of the parts stores I've contacted.

That stinks. I'm still working on my hesitation issues. This is the first time I think the metro lived up to it's public reputation. Thanks guys!

On my 97 geo Metro, I got tired of having to crawl under the car to change a fuel filter.
So I have moved my fuel filter up to the fire wall. much easier to get to now.

The screen is the filter.
Many makers do it this way now...most notably chrysler.
