If you are replacing the whole line, and replacing it with the right part, you probably can do this at home if you are handy and have the right tools and are careful. The 'cone' like connector you are referring to is probably a pressure fitting like a brake line has. It is important with this to make sure the hose is lined up straight and that there is NO DEBRIS in the connection before putting it together and tightening down the nut the squeezes it. Any debris at all will result in a leaking fitting. Also be careful not to scratch the tip of the line where it connects. Again, a perfect fit is the only fit and you don't want a leaky fuel line. If you're not comfortable, a professional is the way to go on this.

You may have pressure in the system, but the system will only work properly within a narrow pressure range - too low or too high will cause problems. Have the fuel pressure checked over several operating conditions (pressure too low is usually the pump or a rubber connector in the fuel line collapsing under high engine load, too high is usually the regulator).

How to replace 2003 mitsubishi lancer fuel level sensor. My fuel gague is going half to zero when the tank is having fuel. It's not showing exact fuel left


Hi.

You need to release pressure from fuel lines cutting power to fuel pump.Turn on engine and remove fuel pump fuse. See:How To Release Pressure
Then disconnect battery.
Take down the fuel tank working from under backseat and underneath the car.
The fuel sender is located inside protective Housing. Remove housing held by 4 screws.
Disconnect electrical connector.
Disconnect the two hoses connected to sensor. Be careful with fuel that may still spray at pressure.
Perform operations in reverse order to reinstall.

How do i change a fuel pressure regulator on a 1996 town and country lxi van ?... while driving the van shuts off and all rpms go down and then comes back on .. Someone told me to replace the fuel filter ,...


The filter needs to be replaced first, if there is not enough volume or pressure reaching the fuel rails, the pressure regulator it's not going to work, nor can it be tested accurately. Filter cost less and and is fairly easy to replace. The filter is located above and on the inboard side of the fuel tank

Fuel pressure should be 38-45 psi . Check the pressure before and after you replace the filter.

The pressure regulator is mounted on the throttle body with (2) 10mm bolts. It has a vacuum line and fuel line attached. Remove the vacuum line, make sure the line has vacuum on it, not cracked or broken--- If the vacuum line has any gas in it, replace the regulator.

I hope this helps & good luck with your Chrysler.

Your best bet may be to cut the metal line and replace with rubber hose and use a connector to connect with another hose. This would make it easyer in case you have to replace filter again, Good luck to you.

1992 Oldsmobile cutlass supreme fuel system failures. A shop replaced the in-tank fuel pump and the engine mounted fuel pressure regulator but the car dies and wont start just like before those procedures.


Find the oil pressure switch on the side of the engine block. unplug the connector. Using a piece of wire or a paper clip, jump the connector, thereby bypassing the pressure switch. Start the car and see if it still dies. If it stays running and restarts ok, then you've got a bad oil pressure switch or low oil pressure which will stoop the injectors from firing. If none of this did any good, put the pressure switch connector back the way it was. My next line of thought would be the MAP sensor. If someone hasn't already done so, retrieve the trouble codes from the computer. That would be a big help in diagnosing the problem. If you need help getting the codes, I can try to explain it. One last thought. There should be a fuel pump relay. That relay could be shutting down, then resetting itself when the ignition is turned off. Replace the relay before you try the jumper wire.

LOOK UNDER CAR FUEL FILTER LOCATED FORWARD OF FUEL TANK. RELIEF FUEL PRESSURE BY DISCONNECTING THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR AT THE FUEL PUMP OR REMOVE FUSE.CRANK CAR UNTIL DIES FROM LACK OF FUEL. THEN REMOVE FUEL FILTER USE IN LINE WRENCH AND OPEN WRENCH.THIS KEEP YOU FROM DAMAGING FUEL LINES.WHEN INSTALLING FUEL FILTER THE ARROWS SHOULD BE POINTING IN DIRECTION OF FLOW.

If possible remove the intercooler and remove the fuel line. place a bottle over the fuel line and have someone turn on the key and see if fuel comes out. If fuel comes out I would check fuel pressure on the fuel rail. Set pressure 3.5 bar. if all checks out then try replacing injectors.
