Changing them, also change the fuel filter if you havent done it in a while, better gas mileage, id just go to your local auto parts dealer and tell them you want a new fuel line linkage from the tank to the front connection, if there is one. not really sure if it goes all the way to the fuel rail or not, but if it does then have fun, drop the tank, remove hose, replace hose, replace fuel filter, replace other cracked hose, making the replacement hose as short as possible, dont cut it though, just a waste cuz your going to have to replace the rest of it anyways

Where is the fuel filter


Located in the Carb.where the main fuel line goes into.Please use 2 wrenchs to remove the line and the filter housing otherwise you may bend and damage the fuel line. When putting in the new filter remove the rubber and spring that goes into the new filter....Tjis is not a necessary item and it will resiult in a better fuel flow.

How do i take off a rusted fuel filter without bending or breaking the line


Ihave not had any luck removing rusted filters without bending the line. Your best bet would be to cut the line a couple of inches back from the filter and re-install the new filter using rubber fuel line and hose clamps to splice it back together. BE SURE THE RUBBER LINE IS FOR FUEL LINE!

How do I change the fuel filter in a 1970 Caddy Fleetwood, 472 ci and where is it?


If you can locate where the fuel line goes into the Carb. Remove the fuel line then the larger nut behind that.The fuel filter is inside the larger nut.It is hard to try and get the fuel line off without both moving or twisting the fuel line,and most times there is not enough room to bend it out of the way to get the fuel filter out.If all else fails you can cut the metal line just leave a few inches back from the nut then when reinstalling you can patch it back with a rubber fuel line and clamps.You may also look into installing a inline fuel filter in better location.Well hope this helped.

2001 nissan sentra when idleing for a period of time idle will drop to nothing and car will start to die then rev up again...once it is put into gear levels out.


sounds as if its either a vacuum leak such as dry-rotted or cracked even the line itself has come undone causing a manifold leak which will cause this as well as it may be the fuel filter or insufficient fuel pressure a wire that is arching ...open the hood and look for the obvious first such as a wire rubbing metal or on the engine a bad plug wire can be tested by bending them for cracks as well as the same way for vacuum lines you can also use a spray bottle of water to find a wire that is arching or you can use brake cleaner to spray around the manifold and vacuum lines for when it either dies out or accelerates and you should find it this way if that is the cause however it may be the fuel filter is struggling to push gas up to the fuel bar check these areas 1st

There is very little power when i start to move off in my car ,or when changing gear.


check the transmission fluids as well as all other fluid levels as long as you are there as well as it may be a fuel filter or fuel pump pressure issue but start with those areas 1st and be sure to check all vacuum lines for cracks as well as the bending plug wires to ensure no cracks are present

2001 new beetle,tries to crank but now dielsel is


Did you replace the fuel filter? If you did and did not pre-fill it with fluid, it won't work, Try cracking lines to each diesel injector while turning it over (open the lines slightly to let air bleed out) Hopefully that'll get you somewhere.

Fuel leaks pretty good from what looks like the fuel filter under the rear passenger side door. it's my father in-law's car and is parked at his parent's house on the street. i'm not going to have alot of...


Some of these cars have a platic/nylon fuel line. I would check the fuel line for wear or cracks. They do make a repair kit but it takes a couple of hours. Those particular filters do not have a rubber gasket. The crack in line is usually at the 90 degree bend where the fuel line goes into the filter. It is a common problem on these cars.
