Answers :

The fuel filter should be where the fuel line enters the carb. Remove the fuel line from carb, then remove the part on the carb that the fuel line attaches to. remove the filter. There will be a spring behind the filter.

I have a 1994 oldsmobile 88. I park my car front side up on driveway. I dont know why this would make a differance but this is when car really acts up. I try to start and it starts but immedietly losses power as if there is no gas and there is also a strong gasoline smell. I finally keep it runnning and once i take off when i accelerate if dies. But turns right back on. I have changed the fuel pump relay, the fuel pump and filter. Could the fuel pressure regulator be the problem? Also the engine

Not starting recently my cobra has been having idle'ing issues. i would start it up and it would immediately die. I would have to rev it real high to just to keep it started. I dont know if there was a clog in the line or something or it was the fuel filter but it did it alot. I changed the fuel filter out and my fuel pump was good. shortly after it started doing it again and one time i had to keep giving it gas just to keep it from dying on me so I could drive it home. I stored it for the winte


It could be the spark plugs, but probably more serious than that. If you scan it for DTC's (trouble codes) it will probably narrow the issues down for you. The problem could range from the plugs, through the entire ignition system and maybe even the ... 1999 Ford Mustang Cobra

My 04 Kia Optima will start but then it runs rough. It acts like I might have trash or water in my fuel line. Does anyone know where the fuel line filter is located, also could this be a problem with fuel injector. I doesn't run like this all of the time. It will be rough for a week or so, and then it will run fine for a week or so and then the process is repeated. I have had it hooked up to the computer and it shows no problems. Any suggestions please?

Fuel pump issue with 1993 dodge dakota. New fuel pump. Fuel lines unhooked at filter key on and crank. No action noted from fuel pump. Took fuel pump out of tank replugged to harness repeated turning on key and cranking, still no hint of pump running. Test the five wire plug that connects to pump. One of the five wires had power to it. The second wire in from o side. Also switched relay fuse to see if it had an impact. Not familiar with system. I know the relay clicks when ignition turns on but


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You should have power to more wires then one. If I were you, I would run a wire straight to the pump from the battery to see if the pump will turn on. I know one wire is for the fuel gauge. Then the out and retu ... 1993 Dodge Dakota

No spark I was driving down the road the other day and all of a sudden I had my truck went dead on me. 1994 Chevy Silverado 350 5.7 liter. I thought it was the battery with a bad connection but the next day bought new battery new terminals. I also didn't think I was getting any fuel. I notice that my fuel pump fuse was blown. checked all my fuel lines and replaced filter I have lots of flow to the injectors. Now I have no spare and i still dont think I am getting any fuel in my injectors. Replac


Are you getting any spark from the coil? The first thing you need to narrow down is the spark. The ignition system on this truck will run without the computer. It cranks over just fine right? ... 1994 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer

Hi just replaced fuel filter on my hyundai santa fe 2004 model, now it wont start & check engine light is on I reset the fuel cut off switch & also as a final check (thinking fuel pump had died) disconnected line from pump which had plenty of fuel coming from it. any ideas? does someone know how to access the fault codes without a special diagnostic tool?


OK i have checked and rechecked my service manual, there is no way to check the codes without the Scan Tool. Its just not possible. I would try checking the flow of the fuel filter, they have a valve built in so that the fuel pressure does not leak b ... Hyundai Santa Fe

The engine turns but does not start. There is fuel in the fuel filter, but i dont know if that matters. also, fuel gauge doesnt work so i ran it on low fuel quite often


Make sure you have spark first. The fuel in the filter helps, but might be clogged enough to not get enough pressure to start. Running low on fuel tends to allow the junk in the tank to get into the filter. Hope this helps and have a great day. ... 1990 Subaru Legacy

My 95 Pontiac Bonneville is not getting gas I've checked the fuel pump fuse, the fuel pump relay under the passenger side and replaced the fuel filter. Is there anything else that could cause the gas not to pump or should I take the gas tank off and inspect the gas pump? Also is there away to check if the gas pump is bad. All I know is that there is no pressure in the gas lines and that no fuel is getting to the injectors. Thanks in advance.


What you need to do is have an assistant turn the key on (not try to start, just turn the key on) while you have the gas cap removed and your ear down by the gas tank fill tube. When they turn the key on you should hear a whirl only for 3-7 seconds. ... 1995 Pontiac Bonneville

How do I tighten my timing belt on my 1987 honda accord lxi with a fuel injected A20A1 motor. I started the car and it was loose but not super loose, I want to tighten it for safety so let me know if you know how to tighten it. I also dont know how or where the marks are and are suppost to line up at. Thanks


The philosophy "if ain't broke do not fix", doesn't work for the timing belt. If it broke the overhead cam stops, but the crank shaft keeps moving, and the result is one or more bent valve. Normally the repair cost is ten times more, than a timing be ... 1987 Honda Accord

Just let the truck sit for about 4hrs and the pressure will be low, when you remove the filter just rest a towel cloth over the connection and very little gas will spill out, and remember to never start the truck right away, turn the ignition on but ... 2001 Ford F150 Styleside SuperCrew

My 1991 gmc sierra 5.7 liter starts up and runs for 20 minutes and then when i shut it off it won't start up again. also if i start it in the morning and let it idle for 5 minutes it stalls out and i cant get it started again. i changed the fuel pump and the fuel filter. i dont know what else can be wrong with it.

My 1995 S10 isn't running very well, at all. I know i have a problem in my fuel line and i have changed the fuel filter. My uncle told me that their should be another fuel filter, more or less a fuel screen, attached to the fuel line further up towards the carburetor, but i can't find it. Can you tell me where the fuel ''screen'' is located further up on the fuel line?


I believe that what he is talking about is behind the fuel line where it goes into the carb. I have also experienced a similar problem from the fuel line by the tank, it was cracked and sucking air therefore it would run rough sometimes and also lef ... 1995 Chevrolet S-10 CA Edition

Hi there,sometimes when you run out of gas you can pull up the dirt fromthe bottom of the tank and damage the pump one quick way to see if you have a pump or filter problem is to put gas directly into the carbuerator or throttle body if f ... Chevrolet Camaro

Rpms are about right. those engines have a plate that is bolted to the underside of the intake and its the size of the intake the gasket for them blows out all the time causing oil consumption and misses.\015\012easy check is pull pcv valve fro ... 1993 Dodge Dakota
