Build date is somewhere in 1995, only one fuel filter and thats located on the fuel pump.


Update: yesterday I went to purchased the fuel pressure regulator and slapped it on. Jeep starts on the first crank without the help of throttle. I let it sit for 30 minutes, an hour Nd overnight and it starts on the first crank without any problems now.
Before if I let it sit for even five minutes it would crank for a long time and start, butvthe start would be weak until the computer stabilized the rpms. It would start faster if I gave it throttle but even at that it would hesitate. Now I'm just happy that it starts with no problems, it hasn't worked like this in a few months. Thanks everyone!!!

there is a mesh type prefilter on the pump which is what i think he was referring to, but the "main" fuel filter is along the frame rail and is the one that should be serviced every 20k or so.

OP claims there is no filter on his rail AZdEvil. I'm not trying to argue with him but I'd like a pic of the frame rail right by the left rear wheel to see if there is a bracket there. I have changed mine twice, and it's a pain but I can't imagine a p.o. removing it all together, maybe a p.o. moved it up farther? There has to be a main inline filter in his system somewhere.
