I was reading some threads over the weekend on how to change the fuel filter.
I noticed two different ways of releasing the fuel pressure, one being remove the fuel pump fuse and letting it run dry.
I also noticed, quite a few people didn't know which fuse was which, so here is a diagram of the fuse layout on my 99 4WD.
Hope this helps at least one person.
99 Kia Sportage 4WD................PURPLE........(wife liked the color,need i say more):rolleyes:
easiest way to release fuel pressure is to simply pop off a line and let is spray out till
the pressures gone, i dont see the big deal with this. rags soak up gas pretty good.
After seeing first hand what gas can do if ignited (brother had 3rd degree burns on 18% of his body) I would NEVER suggest this. It is easier to have the engine running and pull the fuse or relay to the fuel pump and let the engine die from no fuel. By the way thanks for the posted diagram ALLDONEIN.
One of the things that we should all strive to do is work in a way that we can finish the job the next day without a trip to the ER in between.
just my 2 cents...
White 96,4x4 w/Y2K motor,Warn man.hubs,K&N filter, 3row rad., twin 16" electric fans w/SPAL FAN-PWM, 1.4" body lift, 4" UPYOURKIA lift kit,265 75-16 TREADWRIGHT GUARD DOG TIRES ON 16" DC-2 wheels, 140 amp alt. dual batts.
This is what the engine compartment fuse box looks like in my 01 Sportage. I dont know if its been replaced cause i know the car was in an accident. The 2 relays are also there just not in the picture. It doesnt look anything like what ive found on here or in my owners manual
