When i replaced my fuel filter before and fired it up the gunk from the bottom of my tank got sucked into the filter blocking it up. Try checking the fuel lines are clean.

Start with what you know is wrong-the fuel filter. If you still have the problem after that have a competent mechanic diagnose it.

How to fix a1998 buick century to start fuel filter new and airfilter turning over but not starting gets gas


Did you check for spark? It sounds like you're not getting spark. Check for spark. If you are not getting spark then it sounds like you might have to replace the coil packs. Is it running a L4 engine? If its running a standard chevy L4 its probably the coil packs. Try to replace them check again for spark.

2001 CHEVY MALIBU WONT TURN OVER, UNLESS YOU SPRAY STARTING FLUID ON IT, THEN IT STARTS FOR A FEW SECONDS. HOW DO YOU REMOVE THE LINES IF IT IS THE FUEL FILER TO REPLACE IT.


lots of notes in here about overheating cars, everyone wants to replace the thermostat thinking that will fix it, but it never does. likewise lots of folks thinking their fuel filter is blocked solid. it is so seldom the fuel filter. There is a filter on the fuel pump take up before it even gets to the filter so they just are not going to get totally blocked up unless the gas tank is corroding away on the inside. but your issue does seem to be a fuel supply issue. i would be thinking more about the fuel pump or pressure regulator than the filter. have someone check the fuel pressure at the injectors.

1991 geo metro car misses at high rpm


try this first. the older the car; the more problems the ethanol gas is causing. replace the fuel filter. you'll probably see what you think is dirty gas; it is; in a way. it's the ethanol goop that stays and ruins engines, and fuel systems. install the new filter. add a whole can of SEAFOAM to at least a half tank of premium gas. replace fuel filter before next 500 miles.add can of SEAFOAM every 3000 miles after that, and that will clean the valves, the goop, the carbon and keep your tank and lines free of moisture, It might take afew miles(depending on the clogging), but it should work. I hate ethanol gas.

Wont start or stay on


From the info you provided, it seems like it is not getting constant supply of fuel. I think that don't have a carburator. It has a TBI(Throttle Body Injector. You should hear a faint humming noise at the back coming from within the fuel tank when you turn the key on. Thats the fuel pump. Your fuel pump may have gone out.
