Yeah I went outside to jack it up and take a picture for you but it's way to cold out to be goofing around with that.

How's that for Power to Surprise.

build date....april, 2004

winnipeg, manitoba

not mechanical but have changed a few fuel filters...and this car does not have one....and all the pictures and videos will do nothing for someone whose car does not have something where you tell them to look....an open mind is sometimes needed when things don;t seem to add up.....and we who see no filter are not stupid...it would be great if someone said oh really you have no fuel filter, that's wierd...find out about it and then tell us your story...instead of putting good people down for not just accepting your thoughts as gospel...very interested in what you find out...

thank you

We have looked at this with an open mind. We stated to look under the car by the rear wheel on the drivers side. Then he comes back with a post stating he can't find it on the passenger side. Come on.

Just got done going over the Auto Zone parts listing. KIA Rio's '03, '04, '05, all use the same filter, same part number, same everything. If he can't find the filter maybe in fact his car doesn't have one, but I doubt it. I've even seen posts on here about where are the spark plugs. Now we all know they have them unless its a deisel. Hey,here's idea, follow the fuel line back from the engine. Maybe you'll find something.

sorry guys sir rio is absolutely right ! they obviously pumped out a few cars from the factory WITHOUT a fuel filter ! After jacking up my neighbors 2004 kia rio to do a simple fuel filter change, following the same diagram as previously posted. I roll under the front of the drivers rear wheel, then behind, then in front ! Run back to my comp., scratching my head.Now roll under all 4 corners of fuel tank ! Okay maybe its tucked up out of sight. So i drop the tank, still nothing !Besides scratching my head, now i'm thinking i've bumped my head while searching for this elusive fuel filter !! sitting dumbfounded a friend walks up & my now angered nieghbor (i told m' the filter change would take 30 min to an hour tops!)My frnd now laughing googles 'the location of filter', its in the tank! so now i got the back seat out, remove the plate, pull out the pump/sending unit, still not seeing anything that looks like the part i got ! I see three tabs on this plastic coffee can size gas pouring all over me part. Like a mad man i open it. my frnd says 'see there it is' No that is just the pick up filter bag. Now my nieghbor who was seen sighting me in on his 30'06 rifle scope thinking that i'm a complete idiot !!#@ Now my frnd intrigued takes a gander under, around following every sq. in. of fuel line frm tank to inj. As word got around to my mech. inadequacy other nieghbors stopped by for a laugh a few drunk i put a wager on it. So even though i lost my ass on a simple filter chng i won a $125!! THanks kia for brainfarting (at least 2) no fuel filter kia rios!!

Well I guess we all stand corrected. I'll be darned no fuel filter, mustave run short at the factory and just kept the line running as best they could, what a deal. Guess I'll just walk away from this one shaking my head. Just proves we can't be right all the time.
