The fuel line should run under your vehicle along the frame on the drivers side.

How do I no if I have frozen gas lines


You will most likely have no fuel supply. Today's gasoline contains additives in the fuel that help prevent the fuel from freezing. Unless you are constantly running your fuel tank very low ( moisture collects in the tank ) and driving in deep snow in a very cold climate, it would be unlikely the gas will be frozen

Where do I aim a blow dryer to unthaw fuel line on 2001 Mercury Sable Ls


The fuel line runs from the gas tank (underneath) the car up to the injection rail on the engine. Since most of the fuel line is inaccessible, trying to thaw it with a hair dryer is not a good option. You could try blowing the hair dryer on the fuel filter. A better option is to get a couple bottles of HEET at your local auto parts store. Put this in the gas tank. If the fuel line is completely frozen, HEET is not likely to work. You will need to bring the vehicle inside a warm shop. If the problem is water in the fuel, HEET will prevent it from freezing in the future. A gas line will not freeze, unless there is contamination in the fuel. A fuel filter change is a must in this situation, and may solve the problem.

Car wouldnt start after being hooked up to a battery charger for 24 hours


It could be water frozen in your fuel system (fuel line, fuel filter, fuel pump or pickup or fuel rail). If you can get the car into a garage try letting it warm up, otherwise wait for a warmer day, to try starting it. If it is water in the fuel, you can add "dry gas" to your fuel which is an alcohol product designed to be an antifreeze and to absorb the water. However, if the water is already frozen in your system, this won't help without warming the car up first in some way. If you haven't changed your fuel filter in the last year, I would do that as well. Water can easily build up in a filter and freeze there in extremely cold weather. If this problem is water related, also fill the tank completely with a fresh quality gasoline, and add dry gas for the next several fill ups to help get any water in your fuel system out to keep it from happening again.

Frozen gas line


I'm assuming you got this fixed already but to prevent it from happening again keep fuel more than half tank and with every fill add a fuel additive that prevents freezing

2000 Cherokee: Thought I had run out of gas at the house but put more gas in and wont start. It does start for 2-3sec then dies. What could it be ? fuel filter??


Are you located where it is below freezing? May just have a frozen gas line. If not I would suggest a fuel pump of fuel filter.

Car ran out of gas in when the temp was zero. Added 3 gallons of gas and it still will not start. Car turns over. We checked to hear the fuel pump go on by listening for the humming sound in the open...


Frozen gas line? Add about a cup of gas line antifreeze or some methanol (methyl hydrate or methyl alchohol) to the gas tank, then jump up and down on the bumper to agitate/mix it in a bit. Wait about 10 minutes and any frozen gas line would be thawed.
You're sort of on the right track with the rest. If you run out of gas and then cranked, and cranked trying to get it going before filling up with gas... you may have damaged the pump because it relies on the cool gasoline to keep it cool.
If the fuel pump is working properly, it should make a noise when you first turn on the ignition, and then shut down as the pressure builds up in the whole system. If you are hearing a CONSTANT hum, then it may be trying to pump but can't and keeps on trying and trying and may be burning out.
Some fuel pumps actually have a "reset" button that gets tripped if the pump gets too hot. Often access is somewhere through a plastic access panel near the back of the car. The exact location is likely in your instruction manual if you still have it? Also
To replace the fuel pump often requires that the fuel tank be dropped by loosening two metal straps and then the whole fuel pump unit is easily accessed and replaced. You may wish to have a mechanic do it OR if you choose to try to do it yourself, repost with a new subject so some of the auto mechanic experts can lead you through it.
Good luck,
