How do I change the air filter?


Just what does an air filter have to do with the fuel pump? Are you sure you are not talking about a fuel filter?

If so just disconnect the negative battery cable. get some rags to collect the gas that spills when you remove the old filter and put all back together again with new filter noting correct direction - then clean battery connection while you are it and re hook up battery cable.

Intermittent P0191 error code


I had a similar problem that turned out to be dirt contaminated gasoline. The "fix" was always to replace the fuel filter but it would not stay fixed. In particular, each time I started having problems it was after I let the gas tank level get low.

What I did that you can consider was:
  1. But a new fuel filter.
  2. Get a 5 gallon gas can.filled with fresh gas.
  3. Get some cheap gasoline proof container (or several containers) for waste gasoline.
  4. Make a "vacuum cleaner" out of an electric in-line low pressure gas pump, some low pressure gas hose, and a couple of pieces of copper tube, 20 ft of two conductor wire, and two alligator clips. It connects hydraulically copper tube to suck out the gas tank, fuel hose, pump, fuel hose, copper tube to go into the gas can. The wire and clips are to hook the fuel pump to your car battery.
  5. Drive the car until the fuel level is low.
  6. Remove the fuel pump module.
  7. Vacuum the gas tank into the waste gas container through the opening left by the fuel module. Try to get the dirt off the bottom.
  8. When you have vacuumed all you can get, stop awhile and let the dirt settle in the waste container.
  9. Vacuum the gasoline from the waste container back into the gas tank. Vacuum high in the container so the dirt stays in the waste. Try to wash any dirt in the gas tank to below the fuel module opening.
  10. Stop a while and let the dirt settle.
  11. Repeat vacuuming and washing as many times as needed to get the tank clean and empty.
  12. Inspect the tank interior with a mirror and flashlight looking for rust, dirt, etc.
  13. Replace the fuel module.
  14. Install the new fuel filter.
  15. Pour in the new gasoline.
And hopefully you are good to go.

How do I clear the codes after changing fuel filter on 2000 mercury grand marquis


The easiest way is with an OBDII Scan tool, however disconnecting the battery for about 15 minutes will usually do the trick too.

I have a 1992 S-10 pickup 2WD with a 2.5 L engine that will start but won't stay running?


Check the fuel pump wires at the tank.

There are recorded cases the wires are shorting near the spare tire and frame.

Is you fuel showing at the correct level?

====
A weak fuel pump will stall the motor on 1/3 tank or below.

When was the last fuel filter change?
====

Do a fuel pressure test when the tank is below 1/4.

Please post move information on reply.

1999 4 runner cutting out


1-The Gauge reading is not correct, Maybe the fuel level is too low to run but it didn't not report empty.
2- The fuel filter has not been changed causing the pump working harder when low fuel volume flowing in the line.
To be safe, replace the Fuel filter to have a piece of mind. After that if it still happen then I would not worry about as long as I fill up at 1/4 level. The filter is mounted on the chasis the driver side.

Fuel Filter Removal & Installation To Remove:

CAUTION
Fuel injection systems remain under pressure, even after the engine has been turned OFF. The fuel system pressure must be relieved before Disconnecting any fuel lines. Failure to do so may result in fire and/or personal injury.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable and relieve the fuel system pressure.
  3. Raise vehicle
  4. Disconnect the fuel lines from the fuel filter. Have a drain pan handy to catch any residual fuel once the lines are separated.
  5. Remove the fuel filter from the bracket and the retainer, if equipped. Note the direction of the flow arrow so the replacement filter can be installed correctly.
  6. Dispose of any residual gasoline in an approved container.
To Install:
  1. Position the fuel filter into the mounting bracket with the flow arrow pointing in the correct direction.
  2. Install the fuel lines to the fuel filter. On some models, align and push the male tube into the female fitting until a click is heard. Pull on the fitting to ensure that it is fully engaged, and then install the safety clip.
  3. Lower the vehicle to the ground. NOTE: When the battery has been disconnected and reconnected, some abnormal drive symptoms may occur while the PCM relearns its adaptive strategy. The vehicle may need to be driven 10 miles (16 km) or more to relearn the strategy.
  4. Connect: the negative battery cable.
  5. Turn the ignition key to the ON position to pressurize the fuel system and inspect for any leaks.
Hope this helps!!!

How do I change the fuel filter in a 1999 Buick Century Custom?


Philly, the fuel filter is attached to the frame in front of the gas tank, under the driver side of the car. You must relieve the pressure in the fuel line before you start, and it is also recommended that you disconnect the neg. battery cable. After disconnecting the neg. cable, remove the gas cap. Next, look under the hood on the fuel rail for a shrader valve (like the type on a bicycle tire). Place a rag under the valve, remove the cap, and press the valve in with a plastic pen to relieve the pressure in the line. You can now go under the car to remove the filter. You can disconnect the fuel lines easily with an inexpensive plastic disk made for this purpose (only a few $ for several sizes at a parts store). Be careful of fuel in the line that will drain out, no smoking or sparks during this procedure. Should be 1 bolt securing filter to frame. Note arrow on new filter, and install in the correct direction. Replace cap on shrader valve, put gas cap back on, reconnect battery cable. The low coolant light is probably a faulty sensor signaling that it's low, when it's actually ok. Look for wires coming from the reservoir bottle, you should be able to find the sensor at the end of the wires to replace it. If you change the fuel filter in a garage, leave the door open for air circulation, gas fumes can explode easily, having the door open will help dissipate the fumes.
