1989 lebaron cont. car well start with gas primer and then it stops it turn over very good but will not start what is my problem thank you dennis


From the information you posted, my best guess would be either the fuel pump or the fuel filter. Trace the fuel line back to the filter and remove it and check to see if you can blow through it or just simply replace it because all cars need to have them replaced at certain intervals. If there is gas in the line from the filter to the tank that could mean the filter is plugged. You can test the pump by firts having someone turn the key on while your down by the tank and listen to hera if it comes on or you can have them bump the key on while the filter is off and see if fuel is getting pumped through the line. Be careful caus if the pump is good it will start pumping gass on the ground with the filter removed so only have them turn the key on and be ready to turn it off. It would help if you had a small hose to put over the fuel ine and a can or something to catch the gas in when it starts pumping. If nothing comes out with the key on the your fuel pump or fuse for the pump is bad.

Installed new fuel pump because car had old gas in tank. removed tank and completly drained it. replaced tank and installed new fuel pump and fuel filter. put about 6 gallons of gas in car. have tried to...


Okay, you need to make sure the fuel pump is getting power and that you have the lines hooked up correctly. Also, when you replace fuel pumps you need to remove the air cleaner and use starter fluid to get the engine started.

Can you replace an inline fuel filter without replacing the whole gas tank?


the in-line filter is in the fuel line between the tank and the engine, seldom do you have to even touch the tank much less remove it in order to replace that filter. there is a screen on the pump inlet of the
in-tank fuel pump and most likely you are going to have to drop the tank in order to replace the pump or the fuel level sender. make sure there is not a service access hole in the rear of the car such as under the spare tire which could give you access to the top of the tank. on the other hand it is not unusual to find yourself in a situation where a lot of the fuel line must be replaced when you replace the in-line filter. as such you may find yourself with no room to connect the new fuel line to the nipple on top of the tank, without lowering the tank a bit.

1997 Cavalier 4 cylinder, Replaced Fuel Filter. Found extremely dirty. Car will run but seems to be starving for fuel. When trying to accelerate from idle will not do so.


if was that dirty and still having problems filter screen on fuel pump may be clogging as well as debris in lines have fuel pressure checked may have to change filter again as well as a possibility as to removing fuel pump and having fuel tank cleaned out --before going to drop tank try a heavy duty fuel system cleaner and a pressurized type of cleaner it injects a cleaner into the system usually used to clean injectors and carbon out of system good luck

How do i go about dropping the gas tank to change the fuel filter on my cadillac brougham?


The fuel filter is located on the drivers side of the car about halfway between the front and back wheel. Look just underneath the doors and follow the fuel line until you run into the filter.

You just need a couple of crescent wrenches to remove it. While you have the fuel filter off, turn the ignition on but dont crank the car then have a look to see if any fuel sprayed out.
Put a rubber hose over the end going into some kind of container if you want to be neat about it. Just to be sure the fuel pump is working.

Change the fuel filter


The fuel filter will be located above the fuel tank. You will need to remove the front fuel tank strap to change the filter. Make sure you relieve fuel pressure before removing the lines otherwise gas could potentially spray everywhere including all over you! Remove the two lines from the filter (sometimes there is just one) remove the bolt that secures the filter to the tank. Remove the line from the filter to the metal fuel line.

After you install the new one make sure the connection is solid where the plastic line from the filter connects to the metal line. This connection is the one that fails quite often after the filters are replaced!!

Change Fuel Pump on 1999 Chev Silverado v8 2 wd automatic 2 door


well the pump is in the fuel tank and it depends if the tank is full or not if it is its very heavy and you will need a jack and 1 other person to help you there are two fuel lines to unhook and the electrical connector. When replacing it replace the entire fuel pump/sending unit and the electrical harness or you will end up having more problems also spend the extra 15$ and replace the fuel filter

2007 aveo fuel line


look under car at the rear where gas tank is, you should see 2 or 3 small metal lines coming down from thr front of the tank, then you can follow those to the engine.
IF you are looking for a fuel filter that is external, like the older cars have, forget it. The filter is part of the fuel pump, which is located IN the fuel tank. You would need to remove the pump to replace the filter, I haven't had to do that yet but you "may" be able to access it by removing the carpet in the rear to see if there is a access panel that you can remove to get to the top of the pump.
Prices for the complete pump, which may need replacing, at Napaonline.com lists at $464, you can find the same pumps on Ebay for around $100, give or take a few $.
Someone should have just the filter but since you have to remove the pump to get to it, it may be a good idea to replace the complete pump, as these cars were not the best made, they do start having problems at or before 50,000 miles.
Also, see Q on timing belt replacement, they can/do break after/before that milage also, when they break the engine is usually worthless, replace it now and every 40K or 50K after that for your own sake, see the link I posted for that procedure.

Need to determine where the fuel filter is located. Also, how to get to and possibly replace the fuel pump.


To remove the fuel pump, you need to either drop the fuel tank or remove the bed. The pump is in the fuel tank. Personally, I remove the bed, it is easier than dropping the tank, and, more often than not, the tank bolts breal off, or you damage the metal lines on the sending unit. Fuel filter? I NEVER change them unless the fuel is contaminated. It is in the engine compartment; down low. Note that if you DO change the filter, be prepared to replace your fuel lines. The filter metal and the line metal are slightly dis-similar, and "galding" is always possible. That being said, if you take the filter off of the line, 99 times out of 100 the threads on the line will stay on the filter. Not good.
