how hard was it to pump it by hand?Iwould be suprised if a mechanical fuel pump could be easily pumped by hand as the spring pressure required to hold the arm against the eccentric is considerable If its a cleveland or windsor you cannot pump by hand.I own a 1980 running a cleveland and found that if you put an electric pump as close to the fuel tank as possible and have a good original mechanical pump fuel delivery is no longer a problem.I had to do this as soon as i went to a 600 holley as the original pump was not able to supply sufficient flow.the electric pump doesnt have to be an expensive hi volume type,it only has to help to get fuel to the mechanicl pump

SOURCE: How to change fuel filter on 1996 Ford Bronco, 5.8 l engine

You'll need to have a fuel line disconnect tool. This tool can be made of plastic or metal, but the utilization is the same. You can purchase these tools at most auto parts stores. The fuel lines have a "quick disconnect" end on them where the filter attaches. After you've relieved the pressure from the fuel line (line pressure's usually around 60psi so you should wear eye protection). Techniques vary you can remove the fuel pump relay, and start the engine till it shuts down, or (needs another special tool). Attach hose from tool to test port on fuel rail by injectors and drain fuel into suitable container. You can also remove the cap from the test port and with a rag covering the port to catch fuel, depress the schrader vale (like a tire valve). This isn't really the best way,because gasoline can get on you and will inevitably get on the engine. Not always a good situation if engines hot. (To be honest with you, at work I usually just slightly disconnect the line at the filter. Only enough to bleed the fuel pressure off and let it drain into a bucket.) To remove, you'll have to insert the tool into the line around the filter neck at one end. You'll then be able to separate it from the filter. Repeat on other end. You may have to wiggle and twist a bit, as the filter necks might be sticking to the o-ring seal in the connector. Don't force it, as you can damage the connection, and you'll then be purchasing new fuel lines. Most of these filters are retained in a bracket on the frame rail using a big hose clamp. Naturally you'll have to loosen that to pry out and remove the filter. Aside from the initial fuel spillage, and any fuel that might drain down through the lines, the fuel in the tank will remain in the tank. Typically the filter is mounted well above the tank where the pickup tube is located, so siphoning won't be an issue.
I hope this helps

SOURCE: Where is the fuel filter located on a 2006 Ford

Hello there:
if you have your filter great or if not use FRAM G8018 from WalMart for around $8 and then get the fuel line removal tool from Pepboys or autozone for $7. Tool should be 5/16" fuel line disconnect.


  • No need to raise the vehicle.
  • Due to the amount of fuel,that could come out I would use battery powered work light, not 110V AC for safety reasons.

  1. Pull relay #53 from fuse panel under hood. This disconnects fuel pump.
  2. Start engine and let it die. Restart again.
  3. Filter is located under passenger side center seat.
  4. sometimes more fuel will come out than expected. so make sure to Use a clean oil drain pan, or coffee can to catch the excess fuel .
  5. Use tool to disconnect fuel lines. Loosen single screw/clamp. Note the direction of filter.
  6. Replace filter, tighten clamp screw, reconnect fuel lines.
  7. Replace relay. turn the key to the on position for 45 seconds to get the fuel back in the lines
  8. Test by starting car, shut it down, look for leaks. If no leaks start car again, let idle and inspect for leaks again.
Hope this is very helpful for you.
Best regards Michael

Theres 2 pumps one in the tank, lift pump, and one in the chassis rail under the driver side. The one in the tank is cheap, the one in the rail is not. The one in the tank only produces low pressure to prime the main pump and if it is broken, may not cause that much of an issue except when starting. the one in the rail is a no-start if it fails. The idea is that the rail pump can supply high pressure for the injectors, so a fuel pressure test at the injector rail will determine which pump is playing up. Hope that helps Tim

I have an nissan np 200 and I want to change fuel filter but I don"t know it location please assist


More and more these days the fuel filter is either OVER the gas tank, or IN the gas tank. NOT for the normal DIY'er. You have to drop the tank on some models just to get at them. Try Googling it. Good luck!

I WANT TO CHANGE THE FUEL FILTER ON MY 2005 DODGE NEON BUT I DON'T KNOW WHERE IS AT?


the fuel filter is located on top of the fuel tank and it must lowered enough to replace,you don`t have to drop the tank all the way but do the job with no more than a 1/4 tank of gas as it makes the fuel tank lighter when its being supported when doing the job.the gas straps will have to be disconnected from the car so they will give you enough room to drop the tank.

prev.gif next.gif Fuel Filter The fuel filter is part of the fuel tank module. (in the fuel tank)

It's kind of difficult to drop a fuel tank and replace the fuel tank module due to the weight and danger of gasoline catching fire or exploding.

Need to know location of fuel pump in a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee


The fuel pump will be located inside your gas tank which will require you to remove the straps and to drop the tank down... The filter depending on the car, will either be inside the fuel tank, or outside of it near the front of the tank.

Other issues that may cause bad idling would be a bad TPS or EGR

Replacing fuel filter


Unfortunatly most dakotas have an inline fuel filter, its located in the gas tank because there not supposed to need regular maintenance or changing. Basically you have to drop your gas tank to get the fuel filter out.

1999 Taurus has been sitting 4 years, bad gas clogged fuel filter


1.) Change the fuel filter.
2.) remove all old gas (should actually drop the tank)
3.) run injector cleaner get kit to do this from fuel rail as this is probably cover in gunk


You may also have a screen or filter in the gas tank itself that can get clogged. Get rid of as much bad gas as possible. Like I said above it is recommended that you drop your gas tank but if you don't want to make sure to get all old gas out of tank and at the very least put a good amount of stabil in the tank fill with gas do the fuel rail injector cleaner they sell these kits at auto part stores. Hope for the best.

Let me know how it goes.
