Question about 1986 Chevrolet Nova

3 Answers

Where is the fuel filter located (so I can replace it)?


Recently I had the timing belt repaired and the mechanic said I should get the fuel filter replaced asap. I've bought a new one, but can't find the old one. So... where's it at?
Thanks!

Its clamped into a metal bracket that sits off sort of near the brake and clutch fluid reservoirs. Follow the fuel line going to the carb or the line coming from the gas tank. Some are clear plastic, some are white plastic, a few might have a metal body.

On the Nova I believe the fuel filter is located still inside the Carb right at the front where the fuel line comes in. However im not at work right now so I cant confirm that.

What parts do i need to buy for a tune up on a 2001 gmc yukon


For just a standard maintenance tune up you will want:
Oil and filter
Plugs and wires
Air filter
If you want to get really nitty gritty you can get a transmission filter and some tranny fluid.
And I usually run a can of "Sea Foam" through the gas tank for cleaning the injectors

If you go into Advance, or Auto Zone they will get everything I listed above for you. Be sure when doing the plugs and wires that you replace one at a time "wire and plug" if you pull them all off at the same time you won't know where they go when you are ready to put the new ones on.

The only thing to be weary is make sure to as if your vehicle has an exterior trans filter. If not dont worry about the trans filter unless you are mechanically inclined and can take the pan off the transmission and replace the gasket, drain the fluid etc. The internal filters and a flush should be done by a mechanic.

We purchased a used 2001 caravan sport. The owner had died and her children were not able to produce records.. 124,000 HOW can we tell if the timing belt has been changed and how often for oil changes?


The cam belt should be replaced every 120,00 miles.You will have to remove the cover and inspect the belt, to see if it has been replaced and even then it may be difficult to tell. The water pump should have also been replaced at the same time as it is driven by the cam belt and it is easy to see if it is new. Replacing the belt at the same time saves on labor costs later on when the pump will fail before the next cam belt replacement. At the same time you change the cam belt replace the coolant and replace the thermostat. Know that this is an interference engine and as such if the belt breaks you will have serious internal engine damage. If you have any doubt as to if the belt has been replaced or not, then replace it. I would suspect it has not been replaced due to the mileage. Do not drive this vehicle until you know one way or another. I cannot warn you enough on this. If the belt breaks you will spend lots of money to repair it. So do not take a chance. Change the oil/filter every 5,000 miles if you use conventional oil and drive normally. Every 7,500 miles if you use synthetic oil. If you drive all city then change it every 4,000 miles or 6,000 if you use synthetic. Use a quality filter such as Purolator, Wix, or Bosch. Avoid Fram. Change the air filter every 30,000 miles and also change the fuel filter every 50,000 miles. A partially clogged fuel filter can burn out a fuel pump, so change it now unless it appears it has been changed recently. Also have the transmission fluid changed at this time a s preventive measure. Make sure they use the correct A/T fluid as listed in your owner's manual. You do not know the history of the vehicle you must assume none of this has been done.

I ran out of gas in my 1993 chevy silverado 350 now its running like hesitant and sputtering , how can i fix this problem


1st check the Fuel Pressure. Often times a fuel injection system fuel Pump ran dry, can more or less implode, the suction becomes too strong and ruins the diaphragm, thus causing low-to-no pressure. faulty fuel pumps can run just slightly under the fuel injection systems Low tolerance, causing the issues that you have mentioned. this is not 100% the answer just a good place to start. Low fuel pressure= change fuel filter, still low pressure= fuel pump. The cheap carport mechanic method would be to change filters first, if the have been changed recently, move toward replacing the Fuel Pump. (some pump are located in the fuel tank, if yours is not your in luck!)
