By "intake hose" are you referring to the filler neck? If it's not going in the tank, where IS it going? If it's not spilling out onto the ground, it can only be going into the tank. Is it possible that your gas gage on your dashboard isn't working properly? More information, please.

95 sl500 fuel tank holds a lot of pressure,idles rough when stopped at idle speed Where is the fuel tank breather hose?

There is no breather hose for the fuel tank, the system is designed as a sealed system to prevent gas fumes from polluting the air it is called the "Evaporative emissions control system", and yes some systems can have alot of pressure in the tank esp on hot days or after a long drive.

Put new fuel filter still (starts) wont fuel rail is bone dry is this a bad fuel pump? can I change just tha pump its a lot cheaper??? checkd fuse`s an relay already to

You must do first in order to check if you pump is ok, remove the fuel out hose of the pump and start you car and if there's no fuel mean either the hose or the pump have problem but it there's a fuel flowing then your problem are in the fuel distributor (like if your car has carburetor or Electronic fuel injection EFI) your car wont work if this parts were malfunction. Or you have to do is Try to cover the air intake by your palm and start the engine, the action wont be pumping of the intake like cover in second and open the intake them your palm must be wet if not the pump or the hose have problem. Hope this will solve your problem

Is there a problem if you run out of fuel in a Mitsubishi Outlander

you sure you ran out of fuel or the fuel pump has gone bad? try spraying a small amount of starting fluid in the air intake hose and see if the car starts for a few seconds. if it does then the fuel pump is bad.

Fires wont run

Sounds like you have a fuel pressure issue, get a scan of starting fluid from the parts store, spray it into the engine air intake hose whilst you crank the engine over, if it starts you need to repair the fuel pump. The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank, they have an life span of about 100-125,000 miles on average, I repeat this is an average, some go longer some much shorter..

Gas gauge wont work and horrible gas mileage

It should get 22 city and just over 28 hwy.Combined should be about 24 mpg. With a 13.2 gallon tank you should get about 285 miles on a tank. 142 on a half tank and 71 on 1/4 tank. If it gets less you should replace things like air & fuel filter, plugs,pcv valve. Also check pvc hose going to intake manifold while running engine. Sounds like you need to replace the tank sending unit. My focus does pretty good on gas if it is driven easy like grand ma drives.

Installed new fuel pump. pump turns on with key but does not send fuel

Try changing the fuel filter, then VERIFY that there is fuel pressure or not, at the fuel rails. If you have pressure and engine still wont start, problem is elsewhere. Perhaps the system has air trapped in it still. Did you add at least 5 GALLONS of gas to the tank? Some tank baffles wont let one or two gallons reach the pump, unless the vehicle is moving.

If you do NOT have pressure at the rails, check the following:
Are the hoses from the tank connected correctly to the body lines?
Did you install the hose and clamps(if required) from the pump to the same line the old pump was connected to? You can disconnect the inlet side of the fuel filter, and then turn the key on for split second. If the pump is pumping fuel and connected inside the tank correctly it will spray a bit. You can put an empty water bottle over the end of the line, just tape or wire it on so it wont shoot off.
Was there a cap or plug left on the intake(bottom) of pump?

It could also be the new pump. I know you dont want to hear some of these things, but it happens.
You would not be the first person to get and install a bad pump. Fuel pumps, Ignition parts, and electrical parts, and most brake parts should be obtained at a dealership. Yes they cost more but, they work!

Ford escort wagon 1997 code p1443 displayed. what does this indicate & where is the cannister? thank you.

P1443 - EVAP Control System / Vacuum System Purge Control Solenoid Or Purge Control Valve Fault. A fuel tank pressure change greater than minus (-) 7 inches of water in 30 seconds occurred with a purge (fuel vapor) flow at less than 0.02 pounds per minute.

Possible Causes:
  • Blocked fuel vapor hose between the EVAP canister purge valve and the FTP sensor.
  • Blocked fuel vapor hose between the EVAP canister purge valve and the engine intake manifold.
  • Blocked vacuum hose between the EVAP canister purge valve solenoid and the engine intake manifold.
  • EVAP canister purge valve stuck closed (mechanically).

  • Possible Solution:
    Check for blockages between the fuel tank, the EVAP canister purge valve, and the engine intake manifold. Check for obstructions in the EVAP canister purge valve diaphragm and ports.

    The canister is on the passengers side near the firewall if I recall correctly.

    It wont start it acts like its not getting enough gas

    is it gettingf gas? use starting fluid from the local parts store (about $4) to spray into the air intake hose to the engine, if it starts for a quick second then you have no fuel and almost certainly need a fuel pump, the fuel pump is electric and is located inside the fuel tank, the tank must be removed to replace the fuel pump module aswsembly.

    Some times the car will start some times it wont

    the most common cause of this is a failing electric fuel pump, to verify this is the problem buy a can of spray starting fluid at the parts store, when you have the no start symptom spray the starting fluid into the engine's air intake hose, if the engine starts and then dies you need to replace the fuel pump, the pump is located inside the fuel tank, the tank must be removed from the car to rep;ace the pump.
