SOURCE: 2003 Buick Regal Service Engine Soon light.

The error that I'm showing for error code P1133 is 
P1133 Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) insufficient switching bank 1 sensor 1(Rear Bank).  I would suggest having both of your Oxygen Sensors replaced if you haven't already had that done.  Hope this helps.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa.

Check your fusible links; these are small wires molded into the middle of a bigger wire they are usually located up by the battery cables. When they burn they become discolored and softly flexible. Also check your relays too.

SOURCE: 2005 ford F250 6.0 litre turbo diesel won't start.

Same thing happened to my F350 6.0 L 2005. The dealer replaced the high pressure fuel pump on the engine. It is currently working, but one month later the EGR cooler got a leak and it was replaced by the dealer. The internet states these are very common problems with the Ford Deisel. The fix is NEVER BUY A FORD AGAIN. I got taken, How do you feel.

Do my 2008 malibu lt 2.4 has a fuel filter.

The fuel pump is 8 or 9 years old now, and that's about the average life span of those pumps. Just by turning the key to on should cause the fuel pump to turn on for 2 seconds. This is to prime the fuel lines and the engine with gas, so it will be easy to start. Do you hear the pump buzz on for that 2 seconds when key is turned to on, not start? If you don't hear it, then probably a failed pump, but of course you can't rule out the possibility it is a fault in the pump circuit. That is why mechanics will test the pump or at least the wiring to the pump before condemning the pump and having to remove the old one. Yours should be fairly easy to access through an access panel in the trunk, or under the rear seat. You get access to the top of the fuel tank, where you can remove the pump module assembly. And that is what you replace, is the module assembly.
The filter would be found underneath the car. Just follow the fuel lines from the tank towards the engine. One is the feed line, the other is the return line from the engine to the tank. The fuel filter will be in the feed line, the pressure line from the pump in the tank to the fuel rail on the engine. The filter is on this line.

Just had my car filters changed now it won'tstart

If fuel filter has been changed suspect lack of fuel to engine, Diesels sometimes have a manual priming pump to over come this problem, the cars diesel pump will not easily self prime., although some GM engines are designed like this. Always fill fuel filter bowl with clean diesel when re assembling. A after market manual pump with non-return valve is often fitted as an addition to overcome this difficulty.

Hello, i just changed the fuel filters on my 08 f250 6.4 per the manuals instructions. seemed easy enough. basically the only "trick" was to turn the key on/off 6 times to allow the fuel pump to run and...

not really,if it's a diesel you should have a primer on top of the filter,you have to press that around 30times to prime,if it's gas you should already have pressue with key on after 2sec,check filters and make sure you didn't install them backwards flow.

Changed fuel filter and now it wont start,,,how

You may have air in the injecter pump.You need to crack the lines loose at the top of the injecters.Just loosen as many as you can reatch.Back them off about 1-1 1/2 turns of the nut.Crank until you see the dielel squirting out without bubbles and re-tighten them individualy as the air is bleed out.When changing fuel filters try and fill them with disel as high as you can and then try to manualy prime the system while opening the bleeder valves.Well hope this helps and good luck.

How do I change the fuel filter on a 2002 gmc sierra duramax deisel? And where is it located?

becarfull, the fuel filter os on the passenger side of the engine compartment. after replacing the fuel filter you need to prime the system to get all the air out of the fuel system otherwise the engine will crank and crank and never start. if this happens, you'll need how to prime the system or tow the truck to the nearest Gm dealership.
read the owners manual for help.

This system should be self priming, however if it did run out of fuel, I highly recommend changing the filters.After doing so have an assistant turn key to run as you listen for fuel lift pump running,(under drivers side floor attached to frame, one of the fuel filters is part of pump,the other filter is on top of engine) Could have hurt pump by running dry. They are notorious for hard start after filter change and/or out of fuel.Hope this helps.

My fuel filter will not prime on a 6.2 diesel what could I have done wrong

hi from the uk if your vehicle is equiped with a manual fuel primer device? and unable to prime f i pump ? no fuel at f i p are you trying to prime with the ignition on ? as the fuel shut off solenoid that is fitted to f i p is elec/ignition on activated so fuel can then be primed into the f i p and then to assist starting just loosen a couple of injectors delivery pipes while turning engine over then retighten the stop solenoid is liken to a temp sender unit ? and is normally located at the top of f i p adjacent to fuel inj pipe connections solenoid has a wire attached to activate fuel valve in solenoid allowing fuel flow and ign off shuts fuel supply if you operate on/off with key ign you can hear click if working? but better test is by volt meter to test if ign supply ok? if you have merely ran out of fuel or just changed filter ? then provided no air leaks on supply fro tank the above should get you started ? come back if you have more info/update? hope and wish you good luck
