I can't remove a rubber fuel line with a strange metal fitting on it connecting it to one of the metal fuel lines.


As far as I can tell you are describing a pressed on clip. The only way off is to cut using a cutting pliers. I BELIEVE YOU ARE DESCIBING A LOW PRESSURE LINE. Just verify it first by calling the parts store or dealer. If so clip it off R/R the hose & install a new gas line w/ a clamp. Good Luck, Frank M

Gas leaking front passenger side of ford windstar


Have you looked under the hood? (I don't mean to sound like a wise guy.) There are two shiney metal pipes one on the front of the engine and one on the rear as you look at it from the front. They run from right to left on the engine. These are the fuel racks that feed the fuel injectors, (assuming that you have a 3 litre or larger v6 engine). These can concievably rust at the left, (passenger), end and blow gasoline out the passenger side. It is also possible that gas could be leaking anywhere on the engine and roll off the passenger side of the engine or if the fuel line on the driver's side has rusted over a cross member of the frame and possibly roll to the passenger side. Also, there is pretty good pressure on the fuel line when it is running. If there is a rust hole on the right side of the line itself, it could spray to the passenger side, hit something and drip off from there. These are just possibilities. Good luck. Jeff M.

How to change fuel filter on 1997 Ford 150


Things You'll Need

  • Drop pan
  • Socket set
  • Fuel line disconnect tool
  • New filter

  • 1Slide the drip pan under the driver side of the truck, below the driver door. Climb under with the socket set, fuel line disconnect tool and new filter.
  • 2Unbolt the fuel filter retaining strap with the socket set. The filter is located along the inboard side of the frame, below the driver seat. When in doubt, simply follow the fuel lines forward from the fuel tank until you locate the filter.
  • 3Disconnect the front fuel line from the fuel filter with the fuel line disconnect tool. The line flares out where the filter outlet enters it and a retaining clip holds it in place. You can unseat this clip with a pocket screwdriver or a pick, but it's not advisable, as the clip tends to break if pried on unevenly. hence why u need the tool. about ten buck
  • 4Pull the fuel line off the front of the fuel filter and then pull the filter out of the rear line and retaining strap. Put the old filter in the drip pan.
  • 5Slide the new filter into the retaining strap and plug the inlet into the rear fuel line. Make sure the arrow indicating flow direction points toward the engine. Connect the front fuel line, push the retaining clip back into place and bolt the retaining strap back to the frame.
  • 6Climb out, get in the truck and turn the ignition key to the run position. Wait for the fuel pump to stop running (this should be about 10 seconds) and start the truck.

ENGINE COOLANT LEAK FROM BACK OF ENGINE WHERE IS THE WATER PUMP LOCATED


Hopefully just a water hose or connection leak...some parts of these hoses are now metal, and rust away...these factory metal hoses are dealer, and salvage yard only...Many times you can replace the entire metal line with a rubber line...as long as you can connect to both sides...there is a water hose that runs under the coolant overflow, to the firewall...(many times the culprit)...the water pump on your motor is under a pulley located on the front of your engine...Hope this helps.

2003 chevy 1500 has a code that says large evap leak. Where do I find this leak?


"Where" to find the leak is in your evaporative emmissions system. Most of the time, a good visual inspection will turn up the culprit. First, check the fuel cap. Look at the rubber O-Ring that seals it against the fuel fill tube. If it is cracked or looks like it is crushed down, replace your fuel cap. If that all looks OK, then you can check the rest of the system for obvious cracks, or leaks. Start with the Evap Purge line. You can identify this in the engine compartment as a plastic vacuum line about 5/16" in diameter and it has a service port on it with a green cap. Check the plastic line for cracks. Then check the rubber components that connect to this line on both ends. One end will go into the Purge Solenoid and the other will go into a steel line that runs along the frame rail under the vehicle. Follow this steel line to where it goes and inspect all connecting hoses, tanks, etc. there will also be rubber hoses at the fuel tank area and some that connect to the fuel fill tube. Check all of these for any visual signs of damage or leaks. Also check for badly corroded metal parts - especially near the fuel fill tube. Sometimes the metal tubes get rusted through and cause leaks.

If a thorough visual inpection does not lead you to a suspect, then the system will have to be "smoke-tested". This is where the system is filled with smoke under a slight amount of pressure so the leak can be seen where the smoke comes out.

Gas line leak going to front injectors. how do i


I assume the black tubes are flexible hose that goes over the metal tubing, and is held on by crimped clamps?
You have to take the clamps off.
If they are crimped, you have to break them.
The easiest way is usually to put a visegrips pliers on them and rapidly twist back and forth until the metal heats and breaks.
Some crimps require a grinder to remove.
Other clamps simply have a screwdriver slot and unscrew.
It is usually the rubber tubing that needs replacement.
Remember to tell them it is for fuel injection so that they give you reinforced and gas proof replacement hose.

How to replace the oil filter on 1999 sunfire , the oil filter is surrouded by many things and we can not get to it. Is there a easier way?

  1. Place one wheel chock in front of each of the Sunfire's front tires. Lift the rear of the Sunfire with a floor jack. Then support the weight of the vehicle with one jack stand placed under each rear axle.
  2. Locate the fuel filter. The fuel filter is a metal cylindrical piece located underneath the Sunfire on the passenger's side of the fuel tank.
  3. Note that one end of the fuel filter has a nut, while the other end has a clip. Use a wrench to remove the portion of the fuel line which enters the side of the fuel filter which has the nut.
  4. Allow any fuel which is present in the line to drain into a bucket. Use a tool for quick connect fittings to release the clip on the opposite side of the fuel filter. The quick connect fitting tool is readily available at most auto parts stores, and can sometimes be rented instead of purchased. Once the fitting is released, pull the fuel line away from the filter.
  5. Press the end of the new fuel filter that has the clip onto the fuel line until the line clicks into place. Then use a wrench to tighten the end of the other fuel line to the fuel filter.
  6. Raise the back of the Sunfire with the floor jack. Remove the jack stands from underneath the axles. Then lower the Sunfire with the floor jack and remove the wheel chocks to complete the installation.

Fuel filter at foer escape 2001 4w chenging


start the engine  open the hood and remove the system fuse 
the engine will stall, the pressure is now relieved 
the fuel filter is in front of the fuel tank, driver side 
wear gloves/saftey glasses and have a fire extinguisher available (who knows!) the filter will have 2 hoses attached at either end. white/yellowish clips attach these hoses. feel for the top of the clip and push the 2 ends in and down. you may have to use a screw driver to pry the bottom of the clip as well. pull the bottom of the clip down, it will not come out of the coupling completely. repeat for both lines, pull lines firmly off of filter. unscrew filter from hose clamp. approx 6-10 oz of fuel will spill from lines and filter. you should use a pan. install new filter, in same direction as last. insert new clips into coupling, discard old. clip on "out" side may be reused if an R clip. tighten clamp on filter, attach hoses. push in clips to lock. inspect for leaks, wipe entire area clean of fuel. insert fuse and attempt to start. Cycle the ignition to run and off three times before starting to pressurize the fuel line. Good luck and hope this helps.

1999 jeep cherokee do you have to remove the fuel pump to replace


The combination Fuel Filter/Fuel Pressure Regulator is located on the fuel pump module. The fuel pump module is located on top of fuel tank.

The filter/regulator may be removed without removing fuel pump module although fuel tank must be removed.

REMOVAL
  1. Remove fuel tank. Refer to Fuel Tank Removal/Installation.
  2. Clean area around filter/regulator.
  3. Disconnect fuel line at filter/regulator. Refer to Quick-Connect Fittings for procedures.
  4. Remove retainer clamp from top of filter/regulator. Clamp snaps to tabs on pump module. Discard old clamp.
  5. Pry filter/regulator from top of pump module with 2 screwdrivers. Unit is snapped into module
  6. Discard gasket below filter/regulator.
    1. Before discarding filter/regulator assembly, inspect assembly to verify that O-rings are intact. If the smallest of the two O-rings can not be found on bottom of filter/regulator, it may be necessary to remove it from the fuel inlet passage in fuel pump module.
    INSTALLATION
    1. Clean recessed area in pump module where filter/regulator is to be installed.
    2. Obtain new filter/regulator (two new O-rings should already be installed)
    3. Apply a small amount of clean engine oil to O-rings. Do not install O-rings separately into fuel pump module. They will be damaged when installing filter/regulator.
    4. Install new gasket to top of fuel pump module.
    5. Press new filter/regulator into top of pump module until it snaps into position (a positive click must be heard or felt).
    6. The arrow molded into top of fuel pump module should be pointed towards front of vehicle (12 O'clock position).
    7. Rotate filter/regulator until fuel supply tube (fitting) is pointed towards front of vehicle (12 O'clock position).
    8. Install new retainer clamp (clamp snaps over top of filter/regulator and locks to flanges on pump module).
    9. Connect fuel line at filter/regulator. Refer to Quick-Connect Fittings for procedures.
    10. Install fuel tank. Refer to Fuel Tank Removal/Installation.
WARNING: THE FUEL SYSTEM IS UNDER CONSTANT FUEL PRESSURE EVEN WITH THE ENGINE OFF. THIS PRESSURE MUST BE RELEASED BEFORE SERVICING FUEL TANK .

Two different procedures may be used to drain fuel tank (lowering tank or using DRB scan tool).

The quickest draining procedure involves lowering the fuel tank.

As an alternative procedure, the electric fuel pump may be activated allowing tank to be drained at fuel rail connection. Refer to DRB scan tool for fuel pump activation procedures. Before disconnecting fuel line at fuel rail, release fuel pressure. Refer to the Fuel System Pressure Release Procedure for procedures. Attach end of special test hose tool number 6541, 6539, 6631 or 6923 at fuel rail disconnection (tool number will depend on model and/or engine application). Position opposite end of this hose tool to an approved gasoline draining station. Activate fuel pump and drain tank until empty.

If electric fuel pump is not operating, tank must be lowered for fuel draining. Refer to following procedures.

FUEL TANK REMOVAL
  1. Disconnect negative battery cable at battery.
  2. Release fuel system pressure. Refer to the Fuel System Pressure Release.
  3. Raise and support vehicle.
  4. If Equipped: Remove fuel tank skid plate.
  5. Remove 4 fuel hose shield mounting bolts and remove fuel hose shield from body.
    1. Remove fuel tank fill hose and vent hose clamps at fuel tank filler tube. Remove both hoses at fuel filler tube.
    2. Remove exhaust tailpipe heat shield mounting bolts and remove shield. CAUTION: To protect fuel tank from exhaust heat, this shield must reinstalled after tank installation.

        2. Carefully lower right side of tank while feeding both fuel hoses through access hole in body. Fuel Tank Full And Not Drained Using DRB Scan Tool: To prevent fuel loss through hoses, keep left side of tank higher than right side while lowering. Do not allow hose openings to drop lower than top of tank.
        3. Continue lowering tank until clear of vehicle. Place tank on floor with left side (hose side) higher than right side
          1. Drain tank by removing fuel fill hose at tank. Fuel fill hose is largest of 2 hoses. Insert the drain hose (from an approved gasoline draining station) into hose opening. Drain tank until empty.
          2. If fuel pump module removal is necessary, refer to Fuel Pump Module Removal/installation for procedures.
