Carbureted? just follow the fuel line back from the carb to the pump. It's in that line. If injected, it's on the chassis on the inside, near the l/r wheel.Filter may help, but you may have dirt in the power valve and needle/seat in the carb. When was it last tuned up?

It sounds like your choke is closed to much on your carb. that's why it floods so easy and won't go when you put your foot in it. have someone open up the choke some. good-luck, ray

    if i'm not mistaken you should have a fuel filter on the carb also.

    just follow the gas line in to the carb. back it out with possibly a 1/2 inch wrench and there should be a replacable filter there as well. good-luck ray

Sometimes when I drive several miles and then stop. When I try to start it again, the engine turns over but won't start It is like it floods itself.

Have you tried to hold the gas pedal to the floor ? Ford's have clear flood mode strategy programmed into the PCM , if you hold pedal to the floor the engine computer disables the fuel injectors . If it is flooded holding to the floor will clear it out .

I ran out of gas, stupid i know ( my husbands going to shoot me) Is there a quik fix to getting to start now. It has gas, but of course the fuel injection is messed up now.

hi try some injection redX or something like that, this should clear the injectors and get the fuel flowing, just a tip, now it has fuel in, you want to press the gas peddle all the way to the floor and turn it over don't pump it just hold it down with your foot( turn key in ignition that is lol ) this will help "flood" the system with fuel and help it start the way, when i say flood, that's just loosely termed flood, it dose not actually flood it, just puts a little extra fuel into the pots....hope this helps please comment and rate thank

Fuel line or fuel filter location. The jeep wants to cut off and does not want to start unless I put the gas to the floor.

Your problem may be the reverse of what you are thinking...Putting it on the floor should add more air and lean it out. You may have a leaking injector. Before cold starting spray some carb cleaner into the throttle body. If it starts right up, then look at fuel pump or filter. If it takes longer to start, then look at injectors and map sensor. Air cleaner element is clean, correct?

Tries TO TURN OVER but won't start. There is gas,

Pump and filter are located in the tank ( filter and regulator are piggy back on top of assembly and generally can be removed without dropping tank).Check on frame rail near l/r tire sometimes filter will be there also. Try spraying carb cleaner into the throttle body while cranking...this will verify if fuel is or isn't there... If starving for fuel it will start when spraying.

That's a big IF, orv1979. I would go to Auto Zone and invest $20 in a Haynes repair manual so you can see where the filter is located on your vehicle. Also you will have other troubleshooting guides in the book that will help you in the future.
