Your fuel filter housing is equipped with a faulty drain valve. This valve is there to drain the filter housing of sediments that may have collected around the filter. Since these valves are made of plastic with rubber seals, they will deteriorate over time. The line you mentioned is the tube that diverts drained fuel, from the filter housing. Typically when opened (swung away from housing), this valve sends fuel through the tube to the ground beneath. Although not very environmentally friendly, it keeps fuel from pouring all over hot engine surfaces.(obvious benefits there) These are known to go bad for the reasons stated, and can be readily purchased from you local Ford dealer. I hope this helps.

Fuel water separator


Their is a cable with a tee handle on it next to your trans dipstick , always grab the tube with one hand and pull with other or you will break the bracket that\'s attached to it . If this has been done regularly you will not have an issue , the drain tube goes down the engine on the right side and usually soaks your front axle. But if you are replacing the fuel filter you have to remove the air cleaner box and also the silencer box to access the filter . My advise is not to use drain valve , suck out as much fuel as you can and then thoroughly clean out that fuel bowl before you install the filter .I have seen many of these powerstrokes with low power issues stemming from lack of maintenance. Make sure you change your oil regularly 5-6000 miles and if you live in a cold weather state you need to use 10w30 motor craft diesel oil , it works the best with those injectors

1999 grand voyager le how do i replace fuel filter


Hello,

To replace the fuel filter of Your 1999 grand voyager, please follow the steps below, You will be in need of these instruments, Line wrench set, 3/8-inch ratchet and socket set, Replacement fuel filter kit.
  1. Park the 1999 Grand Voyager in a ventilated area and engage the emergency brake,
  2. Walk to the back of the 1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager and completely unscrew the gas cap from the fill neck on the gas tank. Taking the cap off will remove the pressure in the fuel filter.
  3. Jack the back of the 1999 Grand Voyager up and put the jack stands under the rear jack points. Slowly release the jack so that the van is sitting evenly and securely on the jack stands.
  4. Slide under the passenger-side rear of the van behind the tire. Locate the fuel filter that is mounted to the upper part of the gas tank. This type of fuel filter has three fuel lines coming out of it.
  5. Position the drip pan under the gas tank in the general vicinity of the fuel filter. Using a clean rag, compress the fuel lines on the ends. The fuel lines are held to the fuel filter by a plastic clip. Compressing the end of the fuel line will unlock the fuel line from the clip. Pull out on the fuel lines. Do this to all three of the fuel lines.
  6. Remove the bolt from the fuel filter bracket with the 3/8-inch drive ratchet and a 3/8-inch drive socket. Then, pull the fuel filter out of the bracket and put it into the drip pan.
  7. Position the new fuel filter into the bracket. Screw the mounting bolt in and tighten it down tight with the ratchet and socket.
  8. Push all three fuel lines onto the appropriate fuel filter ports. Hook the fuel lines to the same fuel filter ports that they were hooked to on the old filter.
  9. Pull the drip pan out from under the van. Screw the gas cap back onto the fill neck of the gas tank until it clicks. Then, turn the ignition key on and off five different times. Crank the engine on the fifth turn of the ignition. Inspect the new fuel filter for leaks while the engine is running. Then, turn the engine off.
  10. 1999 Grand Voyager back up and pull the jack stands out from under the van. Lower the van back to the ground and slide the jack out.
Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

1996 F250 powerstroke 7.3L keeps dying


It is sometimes difficult to determine exactly what is wrong with the 7.3L engines. Many times it is hit and miss for the do-it-yourselfer. It sounds like you are getting enough fuel at first and then fuel is being constricted. You might want to try changing the fuel filter. Sometimes debris becomes lodged in the fuel tank switching valve which would require cleaning the valve or replacing it.

What is the correct fuel pressure at the rail for a 2004 Lincoln Aviator?


Disconnect the electrical connection to relieve the system's pressure. Start the Navigator and let the engine run until it stalls from lack of gasoline. Turn off the ignition, reconnect the pump's electrical connection and disconnect the negative battery cable.
  • Step 2 Detach the fuel pressure sensor vacuum hose. Check for fuel in the line. If there is fuel present in the line, the fuel delivery problem is likely caused by a faulty fuel pump pressure regulator. If there is no fuel in the line, reattach the vacuum hose and continue with the fuel delivery diagnostic.
  • Step 3 Twist off the fuel pressure test port cap and secure a pressure gauge to the fuel pressure valve. Reconnect the negative battery cable and start the engine. The pressure gauge needs to read 45 psi when at wide open throttle. High pressure readings indicate a malfunctioning pressure regulator. Low pressure readings indicate a clogged fuel filtermag-glass_10x10.gif or a broken fuel pump.
  • Step 4 Cut the engine. Relieve system pressure and remove the negative battery cable again so you can safely remove the fuel filter to check for clogs.
  • Step 5 Loosen the filter fittings and unhook the fuel lines from the filter. Undo and remove the bracket on the fuel filter.
  • Step 6 Inspect the filter for clogs and replace it with a new one if necessary. If there are no clogs, the fuel delivery problem is probably a faulty fuel pump.
