    Same issue on a 2002 Hyundai Sonata. Shelby7 says to "check the vent in the tank. If the bleeder is clogged the air in the tank won't escape and will not let the fuel enter the tank."

    My question is - HOW & WHERE!

Check the inlet tube for obstructions(kinks colapse etc.) and also check the vent in the tank. If the bleeder is clogged the air in the tank won't escape and will not let the fuel enter the tank at a faster rate of speed. Hope this helps

Fuel filter location?

most are in the gas tank.

Easy job if you have a floor jack, 2 floor stands and wrench.
Empty the gas tank, place jack centered on the gas tank jack up the car, put the floor stands in place to hold the car steady, disconnect the wiring go to the gas tank then remove the bolts (most cars only have 2 holding the tank braces, slowly lower the floor jack with the tank on it, remove the fuel pump slowly and carefully as not to have anything fall in the tank.

Pumping gas

Could be a venting problem with your gas tank, or a blockage in the filler tube going to the tank.

I have a 99 bonneville. About a week ago i was putting gas in when i knew it was almost empty, and the pump kept shutting off. I did this for a few days, putting in just enough to not run out. Then it went...

Sounds like the vent for the tank may be defective. The vent is on top of the gas tank between the tank and the floor of the trunk.
Or there is a blockage in the fill pipe for the tank below the connector hose.
You may have to have someone remove the tank and inspect it.

I own a F350 2001 4x4 V10 I an having issue with the fuel pumps i have replased it twice and am about to do it again what could causes this so many times and how do you replace the fuel pump

The cause of the fuel pump going out all the time its where its made China, Mexico ect... junk parts. It took me 3 to 4 times before I found one Made in the USA and this was in a years time frame. I haven't had the problem since. The fuel pump is in the gas tank. If you take it in somewhere it will cost you about $700 and up. Or you can do it yourslf.

1. Get a jack and a block of wood
2. Unbolt the skid plate and jack up to tank
3. Unbotl gas tank straps and filler neck that goes to the gas tank
4. Lower tank slowly and remove gas lines
5. Undo retainer ring on tank that holds the gas pump in
6. Empty gas tank it will make it easier to left up
7. Replace fuel pump and reinstall

I have a 1989 Bronco 2 and it is not getting the fuel right. I think it is the fuel pump. Does anyone think what else it would be. I already replaced the filter. How would I replace the fuel pump?

The fuel pump is in the tank. Drop the gas tank.

1. Support the gas tank with a jack or something
2. unbolt the gas tank straps
3. unscrew the rubber filler neck going to gas tank
4. Lower gas tank slowly and disconnect gas lines
5. Turn the retainer ring that holds the fuel pump in the tank and left out.
6. Drain gas into gas cans to make the gas tank easier to left
7. Replace fuel pump and reinstall gas tank.

Loud clicking noise and black smoke...

Seems like an injector and valves. Check if all injectors are giving same pressure, none leaking or damaged, the injector pump working fine and all filter in the pump are clean (yes there are small filters inside under every electro-sensor), get valves gaps checked and adjusted. at this kind of mileage its a must.
