1. Release the pressure from the fuel system
2. Access to the filter is gained through the RH rear wheel arch.
3. Loosen fuel unions and remove hoses. Clean the ends of debris.
4. Fit new filter observing direction of flow arrows.
5. Tighten to 30nM
Okay, this is different. For one thing, the fuel cap will not show pressure. It is a negative Vacuum system incorporated with the Evaporator Emissions system. You check fuel pressure at the test port on the fuel rail.
What can happen is the plastic fuel strainer in the tank can dissolve into bits. These floating bits can redistribute and clog the fuel pick-up.
Second, at a point in time, gas station filters were a collection of tiny plastic beads. When the sack containing them ruptures, the beads are pumped into customers fuel tanks.
Anyway, it sounds like you have an intermittent fuel blockage. You might try changing the inline fuel filter and pump some fuel for a sample.
This is just a WAG, but I would say you didn't replace the fuel filter after you replaced the fuel pump. Sometimes a stronger fuel pump also pump more of the accumulated gunk from your tank into the fuel system, so the filter clogs up faster.
As a Land Rover Tech I can tell you that it is true that there is no filter on the series2 there is a small screen at the bottom of the pump pickup that acts as a filter,If you feel this is clogged you can remove the pump by pulling up the rear cargo area carpet as recommended above then just use break clean to clean the screen.Make sure you replace the pump gasket as a faulty gasket will cause a check engine light and a little trick I use is to put a small amount of vaseline on the gasket to ease installation.Also a quick note on series 1 filters is that the lines usually cease up causing the connections to break or damage when removing.I highly recommend getting the repair kit available at the dealer or rovers north before attempting to replace the filter .BUT IN REGULAR 2004 lan-drover discovery there is fuel filter located.
Removing the fuel filter
The fuel filter is located on bulk head, to left hand side of the engine. 1: Start by cleaning the area around the filter head.2: Place a container beneath the fuel filter to catch any spillage.3: Loosen the bleed screw using a 10mm spanner4: Unscrew the drain tap on the bottom of the filter until the fuel starts coming out into your the container.5: Once all the fuel is drained from the filter, unscrew the whole filter assembly.
Fitting the new fuel filter
6: Clean the seal & seating on the new filter.7: Put a small amount of fuel around the rubber seal to lubricate it.8: Screw the new filter onto the filter head and tighten by hand.10: Tighten the bleed screw.11: You can now crank the engine until fuel is drawn through the system and the engine starts.Job done!
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively
.thank you for using fixya
Try cleaning the fuel pump filter. Under the seat behind
the driver lift the carpet and you will find a round cover with six
screws remove the cover. The fuel pump is directly below
unscrew the retaining round plate and remove the pump. At the base of
the pump is a small filter if it is covered in black muck that's your problem. clean and replace. job takes about 10 mins good luck. please let me know how you got on!
Hi, I had the same problem on a different vehicle. There is a special tool that looks like a round plastic ring that fits over the fuel line and releases the connector. They come in a set of 6 different sizes are inexpensive and i bought mine at an auto parts store. Good Luck!
