You will get dirty and full of gas so pick up a fuel filter (NAPA).go to your local ford dealer that has a fastlane and they should only charge you half an hour,about 30-40 dollars.while they are changing it ask if you can watch so next time you can do it your self.while you are there if you have any other questions about your vehicle dont hesitate to ask them.

1987 Pontiac Bonneville Fuel Cut-Off Sensor

You have no fuel safety shut off switch
They are only on ford products

Are you referring to the fuel tank level sensor for the
dash fuel gauge?

If you go to Rock Auto.Com-- you will see that the sending
unit is about $50.00

The mechanic is really screwing you over for sure

Drop the fuel tank & replace yourself

How much does it cost to change a fuel filter in a 1991 jeep cherokee, labor and parts?

It is a very easy change, On drivers side before the gas tank. A couple of bolts and four clamps on the gas line. It takes about 15 minutes and the filters are not that much. It is a big black filter.

Just had fuel pump and filter replaced because fuel gauge was going all wonky. Vehicle ran perfectly prior to this. Now it runs like a thrashing machine and I'm told it is the FPR needs replacing to the...

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Yes the cost is just normal specially when it's in the dealership. You may cut the cost a little if you take it to a backyard mechanic but be sure that he has a knowledge on this before proceeding.

Hope this shed some light and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Hi My garage just told me they want 705 dollars to replace a pcm wire. This sounds insane to me.

yes it is, get other opinions. Replacing a wire is easy, yes the dash might have to be removed. But i would go to a salvage yard and get the whole inside wiring harness for 100.00 and charge 200.00 for the replacement. 700.00 sounds like they can take tomorrow off. If you are a female watch out for the garage guy who prey on women as if they are idiots and will pay. have a few quotes and dont let them scare or talk you into something you have doubts about untill you are sure. Your first instinct is the best.

Trying to change fuel filter on a 2008 escape. took off 2 metal clips and bracket holding filter. filter turns around gas line, but how do you get it off gas line? I don't want to force it

They make cheap fuel line removal tools and can pick them up at any auto parts store. They can explain how to use them. Its really easy. Find the tool that's closest to your fuel line size, they also sell a universal pack for around $5. Open the tool mouth so it goes over your fuel line with male part of the tool facing the female slide it in. Then your line can be pulled out. Careful the line are under pressure with gas. It will only leak for a few seconds. Then replace your fuel filter and the lines just snap back on, no tools necessary. Check for leaks and your done. Good Luck!

The Pump and Filter are Absolutely the Problem! Replace them Both. Small price to pay for Security and Cheaper than a New Jeep.

Question on location of fuel filter?

Whoops someone is messing with you! The fuel filter is a screen assembly that is married with the high-pressure electric fuel pump which is buried in the gas tank. A replacement pump and filter assembly can be purchased for $90 but dealers usually charge $150-190. B/C of the high pressure in the fuel system (b/c of the EFI) a dealer or experienced Jeep mechanic is the best way to fix this problem. Expect to pay $300-500 to get the repair done. MY ADVICE - have everything related to the fuel pump, filter, and Guage Sensor replaced at one time. It will save you LOTS of problems.

Gas mileage drop

Ok just for starter, this vehicle may be due for a tune up, but what affects fuel economy more than a tune up are oxygen sensors(02 sensors). just in-case you don't know because you seem very knowledgeable, they are located in the exhaust system. start from the manifold and work you way down to the tail pipe, they look like spark plug with electrical wires attached to the color of wires are white, black and grey. About they fuel filter no they are not 100 dollars each, much less than that, however one is located in the gas tank and other is outside of the tank. Contact me if you need more help. Good Luck
