SOURCE: Toyota Hiace 99 Fuel filter change

Look first right rear back under fuel tank,< If not, follow fuel lines from fuel tank one main line, one return line, traveling parallel to frame all the way to the motor compartment on front, can be front under right passenger side, first by the filter at the auto parts, that way you will know what to look for

SOURCE: 99 ram diesel wont start

Did you check to see if there is power to the glow plugs if not then that may be the problem and if there is power when you cycle the key not to start but for the plugs to warm up you may have a bad glow plugs.

SOURCE: 1994 F350 WILL NOT START

you simply have to bleed the fuel lines...

to do that just loose up the line and have someone rotate the engine until you have some fuel going there...

make sure that your fuel filter is full because you will do this for nothing...

it should only take like 5 minutes of bleeding...

SOURCE: Fuel filter replacement

I believe there is actually an access panel in front of the second row seat behind the drivers seat that you can access the top of the tank, fuel pump and possibly the fuel filter if it is in the tank. Lift up the carpeting and check.

How do i drain my 98 mercury mountaineer gas tank? I accidentally put diesel fuel in n now it wont start!


You're gonna have to drop the fuel tank to dump it. Also, you're gonna want to change the fuel filter and flush out your fuel lines when done. You may still have to replace some of the upstream parts (fuel pressure regulator, 1 or more injectors, various seals).

Hi i have a 2006 dodge diesel that we figure got bad fuel and stopped running.wouldnt start took it in go a new lift pump, fuel filter, lines cleaned and tank cleaned out and its still not running great....


Diesels need to be clean and typically after 10,000 miles removing the fuel filter produces very little in the way of dirt and grit.

You had the tank and lines cleaned out and a new pump and presumably a new filter and still you find dirt and grit in the filter after a short time. ..
Either the tank, etc. wasn't cleaned out or more dirt has entered the tank since, either from more dirty fuel, from dirt ingress into the tank while the car is in use or the third possibility is something is wearing rapidly and the dirt is appearing in the tank to be recirculated after being sent along the fuel return line. If this is what is happening it throws suspicion onto the high pressure pump...

If the high pressure pump is failing it is surprising one or more of the injectors hasn't failed.

If you got dirty fuel the filter should have trapped everything that was likely to damage the injection system until performance reduced and eventually the engine stopped due to fuel starvation. Replacing the fuel filter with a suitable amount of care should then restore performance to the previous level.

Fuel filters are great for trapping dirt but not so good for other liquid contaminants. Water fortunately tends to remain at the bottom of the tank and the bottom of the filter cavity but other things might pass through the filter - acids, salt solution, solvents.
A couple of years ago there was a case of a few petrol filling stations selling fuel contaminated with seawater and shortly afterwards a lot of injectors needed replacing...

I think if my car had the problem your car has I would temporarily fit an inline filter to the fuel return line and drive it for a time. Two things should happen if the dirt is self-generated. The new inline fiter when cut open should show the dirt and grit you usually discover in the main filter and secondly, there should be a reduction in the amount of dirt and grit you find in the main filter, however any dirt at all in the inline fiter means my best advice is to take the car to a good diesel specialist for proper diagnosis and a guaranteed repair.

If dirt is found in the fuel return line there can be no half measures - the business end of the injection system needs surgical-level cleanliness.

Good luck!

How do i change the fuel filter


Not sure i know where it is on this year ,To be honest i rarely need to change a fuel filter on a petrol engine vehicle .Diesel yes on the peugeot /citreon range of diesel engines as they seem to get metal swarf in them (long story) but petrol engines unless they have somehow got water in the tank with the old metal type fuel tanks via condensation but modern vehicles with polypropalene fuel tanks no problem.Anyhow to change a fuel filter then locate where it is and just change as the system will self bleed

1983 Chevy Silverado 6.2 liter diesel. Water in fuel


You need to remove this right away. There is a small petcock on the frame or possibly at the spring hanger to siphon the water out with. Simply attach a hose to it and open the valve and siphon the water out until you get pure diesel fuel. Then replace the primary filter on the firewall. It helps to fill it before you reinstall the new filter. Drain the filter into a bucket and check for water in it. If there is you will also have to change the secondary filter on the engine. Then prime the system to bleed the air out. If you get a lot of water you may need to consider dropping the tank and cleaning it as well. On 1983 and newer trucks the light will come on with as little as a quart of water, on older trucks it doesn't come on until there is a gallon.
You may want to look into picking up a copy of Haynes Diesel Engine Repair Manual, part #10330. For $20 it has excellent help and advice on this engine. Hope this helps.

WERE IS THE FUEL FILTER


A fuel filter is a filter in the fuel line that screens out dirt and rust particles from the fuel. They are normally made into cartridges containing a filter paper. They are found in most internal combustion engines.
Fuel filters serve a vital function in today's modern, tight-tolerance engine fuel systems. Unfiltered fuel may contain several kinds of contamination, for example paint chips and dirt that has been knocked into the tank while filling, or rust caused by moisture in a steel tank. If these substances are not removed before the fuel enters the system, they will cause rapid wear and failure of the fuel pump and injectors, due to the abrasive action of the particles on the high-precision components used in modern injection systems. Fuel filters also improve performance, as the fewer contaminants present in the fuel, the more efficiently it can be burnt.
Fuel filters need to be maintained at regular intervals. This is usually a case of simply disconnecting the filter from the fuel line and replacing it with a new one, although some specially designed filters can be cleaned and reused many times. If a filter is not replaced regularly it may become clogged with contaminants and cause a restriction in the fuel flow, causing an appreciable drop in engine performance as the engine struggles to draw enough fuel to continue running normally.
Some filters, especially found on diesel engines, are of a bowl-like design which collect water in the bottom (as water is more dense than diesel). The water can then be drained off by opening a valve in the bottom of the bowl and letting it run out, until the bowl contains only diesel. Many Fuel Filters contain a water sensor to signal to the ECU or directly to the driver (lamp on dashboard) if the water reach the warning level. It is especially undesirable for water to be drawn into a diesel engine fuel system, as the system relies on the diesel for lubrication of the moving parts, and if water gets into a moving part which requires constant lubrication (for example an injector valve), it will quickly cause overheating and unnecessary wear. This type of filter may also include a sensor, which will alert the operator when the filter needs to be drained. In the diesel fuel filter there is (usually) a fuel heater to avoid the paraffin (in case of lower temperature) inside the filtrating element which can stop the fuel flow to the engine.

My '95 VX diesal runs rough feels like fuel not getting through,


CHANGING THE FILTER ON FOUR DIESEL WILL only HELP IT-- SOUNDS AS IF YOU HAVE A FUEL SUPPLY OR CONTAMINATION PROBLEM both go through the FILTER so When Changing Filter Try to keep as Full As Possible and Pour into a GLASS Jar let it sit for 10-20 mins. Then you can see the Water (IF ANY) on TOP of the fuel, if you Find Water and Your tank is Low Top Off with DIESEL FUEL this Should Solve your Problem Fuel Filter Must Be REPLACED as Contamints can stow away in it, Bio is Good Both Ecologicly and >>CLEAN will Burn Well > FLUSHING with CLEAN DIESEL FUEL is a good Idea., A VALVE ADJUSTMENT if not performed in a long time or many miles, This can Do Wonders for Your Diesel I hope this helps you with your T L C Have a Good Day and if im Worthy RATE me Accordingly. Thank You, RejakWilson

Hellie11-

Well, I came up empty handed in my attempts to get detailed tech information on the 2.5 turbo-diesel, but I do have some ideas based on my general diesel experience and from your description of the problem.

Diesel fuel is VERY prone to pick up contaminants and especially water... most diesel configurations have some sophisticated filter systems to help deal with this... but good maintenance calls for the occassional adding of a can of diesel fuel conditioner to the tank, to help remove water and contaminants. In severe cases, the entire fuel system has to be torn down and cleaned, including draining and flushing of the fuel tank... and ALL filters should be changed.

Since they force flushed diesel through the system and got you running again, I am inclined to believe you have a dirty fuel problem. I would recommend they again flush your system, but also drain and flush clean the fuel tank AND change the filters... Have them capture some of the old fuel from the tank in a quart glass jar, and have someone examine it for evidence of contamination... water will separate and collect at the bottom (unfortunately, water does not separate from diesel as well as it does gasoline... that's why fuel contamination is such aproblem!)

And since the problem didn't come back until you refueled, I'd make sure the new diesel fuel you get be checked BEFORE you put it in the tank!!!

Finally, get in the habit of adding fuel conditioner periodically to help keep this problem from coming back too soon. Ask one of your mechanics about that, or collar a truck driver and get his advice on the subject!

Good luck Hellie11, don't be shy to ask for more help or post a comment, and if you need, you can e-mail me directly at wldbil49@yahoo.com.
