An engine needs three things to run : Fuel, Compression and Fire. Check to make sure you are getting fire to the spark plugs. The fuel pressure regulator on the injector rail may be bad. There is a schrader valve on the injector rail, check to see if there is fuel there. It is a valve like a tire valve, depress it slightly to see if there is fuel there.

You need the spring lock tool to get them off.

Sometimes you can rent the whole set of different sizes from local auto stores.

How do you know it is non of the above.

If you are sure next thing to do is check for a kink in the fuel lines.
After that start checking fuel injectors.

SOURCE: need to know where fuel filter is on 5.9 engine 1999

the fuel filter should be a cylinder near the top of the engine if you follow the fuel lines back from the carb/injectors you should find it

SOURCE: have 1999 nissan pathfinder.

An easy check is to spray an easy start into the air filter and, if it starts then dies, then fuel is the problem( since you switched the filter, then pump is next)
If it doesn't start or even try, then an electrical fault(plugs, or plug leads cap etc).

Ford explorer, 1999 engine running rough, some times shut down after 3-5 min of operation. Any suggestions?


This could be several things, If a shop did the repairs, I assume they also checked the fuel pressure regulator. Since you do not mention a Check Engine Light being on, I assume it is not. So that rules out the EGR valve. It is possible for the catalytic converter to be totally clogged, and cause the engine to run rough and die. Other possibilities are the coil, or arching in the plug wires. Vacuum leaks will cause rough idle sometimes.
I would suggest, if the check engine light is not on, start the engine, and observe it at night to see if you have plug wire leakage, if so, replace, If not, disconnect the catalytic converter(s) and see if the engine smooths out if so, replace. There are a lot of other things that can cause this type of issue, and a bit more history would be helpful. Did the problem just start? Did it get worse over time? Is the CEL on?

Car will crank but will not start


First check you are getting spark to plugs. If yes check for fuel. You can spray starting fluid in intake when you pull off intake rubber hose that sits on top of engine. If you start momentarily you have fuel problems. Turn key forward just where its left after you start. Listen for fuelpump to whine back by gas tank filler. If no noise most likely fuelpump. Always change fuel filter right after its install.
