    Does anyone know where to find the in line fuel filter on a 2.7L '99 Tacoma 4x4?

    Manual says either under the intake manifold, or on the rear driver side frame rail, but I checked under the manifold and the entire drivers side chassis and no dice.

    Any help?

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    They're almost always on the drivers side, underneath where the driver sits. It's NOT in the tank like a 2nd Gen Tacoma, should be under the truck.

    on the 2.7 its on the block, drivers side just below the intake plenum/manifold. Its about 3'' long and 2'' tall cylinder. You will see it looking above the top shock tower mount. Very easy to do. Two 17mm bolts for the fuel lines, two 12mm bolts that hold the clamp onto the block, 10mm to loosen the clamp. 15 minute job.

    You guys saying it below the driver on the frame, you have a v6. The OP has a 2.7 4cyl...lol, read his post :p

    Just did mine for the second time two days ago.

    200k+ and running like shi*, it was suggested to me after I put my headers on and not having the exhaust leak stopped hiding the rough idle, so I thought why not.

    I guess i will look harder on the block then, thanks TacoMX. I guess I could have put 4cyl, thought 2.7 said it.

    Thanks for all the input guys.

    This is from Google images..don't bother about the red circle
    [​IMG]

    see the fuel line with the copper banjo fitting on it connected to the big black round canister? that is your fuel filter.


    Now jack your truck up..take driver side front wheel off..sit inside the fender wells and take off your engine drapes..then look straight inside towards the block and you'll see this

    I just took a couple of pics. My truck has a 3'' Body lift, so its easier to see.

    Good luck

    2.7 = Driver's side block of engine - PITA.

    3.4 = Inside of frame rail on driver's side, essentially under driver's seat.

    I've owned both and replaced both. The 2.7 fuel filter sucks to replace. Why in the hell didn't they just put it on the frame?
