The fuel filter is within the fuel pump its under the rear seats, you should see a black round cover thats where it is. The fuel filter on the MK2 is not a serviceable item, if the filter goes then im pretty sure that the whole pump needs replacing, your best bet is to just run some injector cleaner through the system.

Re: were is located the fuel filter?????

ejj guys. i just removed one of the spark plugs out, my bro which is a mechanic told me that the engine is working with low fuel. Today I’ve put some injector cleaner in the system hoping it will fix the problem. If that punto will still be slow I guess the only thing left will be the “fuel filter” in the center under the read seat there’s the fuel pump. Well I called fiat about this. They told me that the fuel filter is right beneath the car under the rear seat, passenger side (right hand drive car).But couldn’t find it. Man I’m confused

thats on the mk1.

The car on idle will run lean and with no load the ecu makes it run lean.

If your car lacks performance, the question is when did you last:
change the plugs - are they gapped correctly? Torqued correctly? - Could be losing compression
Change the oil - Did you use an engine flush, you could be loosing alittle compression with sticky piston rings?
Cleaned the throttlebody? - When they are dirty they reduce the throttle response..
Clean the airfilter/replace it (often people buy induction kits and never clean them resulting in poor performance.
