Re: changing fuel filter in jaguar x type
The fuel pump is in the fuel tank....but you can see the top of it by removing the rear seat cushion, but if trying to replaced it, you have to drop the whole fuel tank. Also if your trying to prime the fuel pump turn it to the second postion, but dont start it, do that 2 or three times to prime the fuel pump.

the fuel pick-up in the tank has a sock on it to filter out any large debris to keep it from damaging the fuel pump, that sock can become clogged and prevent adequate amounts of fuel from getting to the pump thereby starving the pump
You might be able to pour a small amount of fuel in carb. A little at at time to get it primed. Once started get some fuel system cleaner into fuel to clear out any condensation and build up from sitting. Other things - do an oil change, check steering and suspension bushings, replace fuel filter, pull and visually inspect spark plugs, let car fully warm up before attempting to move - let transmission fully warm up and change trans fluid at earliest convenience, Make sure tires are safe- pressure and check for weather cracking and flat spots. Check all belts and hoses. This should get you started.
dear friend: i think that your terracan is actually running out of fuel even if the guage shows quater,you can also put the old fuel filter back and try it,we did discover some of the new filters sucking air.
The system needs to be primed. Most cars just to be turned over several times for the fuel to work it's way back to fuel rail. If you cant fill the filter with fuel before installing it you may be
able to crack your inctor lines just enough to allow a small amount of
fuel to be released while you have someone crank the engine. do each
cylinder one at a time. be sure to tighten each line after you get a
little fuel out of it. that would be the only way i know. i was a heavy
equipment mechanic assistant and thats how we have to do them.
change fuel filler as normal then connect fuel feed from tank connect injectors leak off to fuel fillter leaving the rail flow pipe off this is the midddle one with the arrow pointing out
connect a piace of clear plastic pipe to this connection and slowly suck the fuel through the filtter and half way up pipe you can see this happen stop sucking the fuel will flow back to fillter take the pipe you were sucking through off and connect the feed to rail pipe turn on and crank engine she will start immediately
