I will never pretend to be a mechanic so forgive me if I sound ignorant.

I have a 95 Camaro with about 140,000 miles on it and it is really performing poorly especially on take-off. Almost as if I have gotten bad gas or it's missing. I'm thinking it might be the fuel filter but I'm not sure. If it is could I get some advice on changing it myself or direct me to a web site that might have illustrations and directions on how to do this. Thanks.

Forgive me if I am a little off...but I don't have my manual in front of me...so I am going from memory...

1.) Turn off the car and pop the hood.
2.) At the back of the intake, on the drivers side, there is a regulator with a cap that will screw off. Unscrew the cap and use a small screwdriver to push in the center valve stem (just like a tire valve). Make sure you have a rag because it will spray fuel out.
3.) When the line pressure is relieved (no more fuel coming out regulator), put the cap back on and close the hood.
4.) Under the car..on the drivers side in the area of the rear seat, you will find the fuel filter. There will be a steel line coming from the tank/fuelpump and a black hose going from the filter to the engine.
5.) On the hose, there are 2 ears that must be squeezed toghther...then you pull the hose out of the filter.
6.) The hard line threads out with wrenches. Again...make sure you have rags to catch any fuel that spills and DO NOT smoke or have any hot or spark producing equipment....

To install...just reattach the lines to the new filter and fire her up....

Good luck..

P.S. don't use a trouble light with a regular houshold style bulb, A friend did this lost half his face and his car and house when every thing went up in flames, he droped the trouble light while he was under the car, there was raw gas on the floor, the bulb broke, BOOM!
