I have a1984ford ranger. starts right up runs great for 15 20 sec. Replaced fuel pump( external) maybe canister fuel filter?


You always replace the filter before you replace the pump. You probably have a clogged filter and replaced a pump that wasn't bad. Filter is under drivers door mounted inside of frame. A sharpie marker pen top can be cut and slit to fit around fuel line at filter. This will allow you to release the filter from the line. There is a tool for this but a sharpie cap and a pair of pliers works better. Put pen cap beside filter connection to judge lenght. Cut off and slit. Use pliers to insert.

Fuel pump replacement on a 2003 kia sorrento


Remove negative battery terminal, release tank pressure by opening gas cap, remove the rear seat, you will see a cover, remove the cover, you will now see the top of the gas tank and also the pump, the pump is located inside the tank and can be removed from the top, next remove the connector from pump, remove the lines, note : cover lines with a rag as you remove there may be a little pressure, this will help gas from spray all over, with connector removed and lines removed you will now remove the six bolts holding the pump in, lift and remove the pump, take note of the position, make a ref mark so you can reinstall pump in top of tank facing the right way. this is called a fuel pump module, here is a picture of the pump unit.10_6_2012_2_55_35_pm.jpg

1988 ford bronco with 5.8 liter engine has good spark , cranks over ,but dosent start. if u spray ether into throttlebody fires up for a second then dies once fuel source is gone


Well, since your vehicle has spark, as you mentioned, you have spark, that would lead me to believe you have a some kind of fuel related problem. 1) Check your fuel presssure. If low, replace the fuel pump 2) Sheck your fuel filter. If dirty, replace. 3) Check your fuel line for damage. If damage if found, replace the line.

Where is the fuel pump located in a 2005 Neon and how do you replace it?


Locate the Fuel Filter and Fuel Pump

  • Raise the Neon's rear end on jack stands. Remove the panel inside the trunk covering the fuel pump assembly. The fuel filter should be on top of this. On most Dodge Neons the filter is usually directly attached to the fuel pump. In that case, those two parts should not be separated and should be replaced together.Its a silver dome about 2.5 inchs round with a single plastic hose coming off it.



  • REMOVAL :-------
    WARNING: THE FUEL SYSTEM IS UNDER A CONSTANT PRESSURE, EVEN WITH ENGINE OFF. BEFORE SERVICING THE FUEL FILTER/FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR, THE FUEL SYSTEM PRESSURE MUST BE RELEASED.

    1. Refer to Fuel System Pressure Release in the Fuel Delivery System section of this group. The fuel filter/fuel pressure regulator is located on the top of fuel pump module. Fuel pump module removal is not necessary.
    2. Raise vehicle on hoist.
    3. Disconnect fuel supply line at the Filter/Regulator nipple.
    4. Depress locking spring tab on side of Fuel/Regulator and rotate 90 ° counter-clockwise and pull out. NOTE:Make sure that the upper and lower O-rings are on the Filter/Regulator assembly.

    INSTALLATION
    Lightly lubricate the O-rings with engine oil.

    1. Insert Filter/Regulator into the opening in the fuel pump module, align the two hold down tabs with the flange.
      1. While applying downward pressure, rotate the Filter/Regulator clockwise until the the spring tab engages the locating slot.
      2. Connect the fuel line to the Filter/Regulator.
      3. Lower vehicle from hoist.----------------

    How do i replace the fuel filter on a 2000 Nissan Sentra


    Fuel filter for SRDE20B15 engines (00-01) are in the tank mounted on top of the fuel pump inside the fuel assembly. Release fuel pressure by starting car and removing the fuel pump fuse, open fuel filler cap, remove rear seat, open fuel assembly cover by turning the screws clockwise, remove harness, remove fuel line quick connector carefully (if pressure was not relieved, gas will leak, make sure to release pressure completely), take out fuel assembly (watch out for fuel level sensor and temp sensor thingies). Pop top off the fuel assembly and pop fuel level sensor unit with screwdriver. Remove fuel pump harness connector, quick connectors. Pop top off completely, pop fuel filter+pump assembly out, remove fuel pump bracket on the bottom of it. Push fuel pump down from the top harness connector, Take out the rubber grommet (very important - car won't start) between fuel filter and fuel pump, put it into new fuel filter, and reverse all the steps to close it up.

    1999 jeep cherokee do you have to remove the fuel pump to replace


    The combination Fuel Filter/Fuel Pressure Regulator is located on the fuel pump module. The fuel pump module is located on top of fuel tank.

    The filter/regulator may be removed without removing fuel pump module although fuel tank must be removed.

    REMOVAL
    1. Remove fuel tank. Refer to Fuel Tank Removal/Installation.
    2. Clean area around filter/regulator.
    3. Disconnect fuel line at filter/regulator. Refer to Quick-Connect Fittings for procedures.
    4. Remove retainer clamp from top of filter/regulator. Clamp snaps to tabs on pump module. Discard old clamp.
    5. Pry filter/regulator from top of pump module with 2 screwdrivers. Unit is snapped into module
    6. Discard gasket below filter/regulator.
      1. Before discarding filter/regulator assembly, inspect assembly to verify that O-rings are intact. If the smallest of the two O-rings can not be found on bottom of filter/regulator, it may be necessary to remove it from the fuel inlet passage in fuel pump module.
      INSTALLATION
      1. Clean recessed area in pump module where filter/regulator is to be installed.
      2. Obtain new filter/regulator (two new O-rings should already be installed)
      3. Apply a small amount of clean engine oil to O-rings. Do not install O-rings separately into fuel pump module. They will be damaged when installing filter/regulator.
      4. Install new gasket to top of fuel pump module.
      5. Press new filter/regulator into top of pump module until it snaps into position (a positive click must be heard or felt).
      6. The arrow molded into top of fuel pump module should be pointed towards front of vehicle (12 O'clock position).
      7. Rotate filter/regulator until fuel supply tube (fitting) is pointed towards front of vehicle (12 O'clock position).
      8. Install new retainer clamp (clamp snaps over top of filter/regulator and locks to flanges on pump module).
      9. Connect fuel line at filter/regulator. Refer to Quick-Connect Fittings for procedures.
      10. Install fuel tank. Refer to Fuel Tank Removal/Installation.
    WARNING: THE FUEL SYSTEM IS UNDER CONSTANT FUEL PRESSURE EVEN WITH THE ENGINE OFF. THIS PRESSURE MUST BE RELEASED BEFORE SERVICING FUEL TANK .

    Two different procedures may be used to drain fuel tank (lowering tank or using DRB scan tool).

    The quickest draining procedure involves lowering the fuel tank.

    As an alternative procedure, the electric fuel pump may be activated allowing tank to be drained at fuel rail connection. Refer to DRB scan tool for fuel pump activation procedures. Before disconnecting fuel line at fuel rail, release fuel pressure. Refer to the Fuel System Pressure Release Procedure for procedures. Attach end of special test hose tool number 6541, 6539, 6631 or 6923 at fuel rail disconnection (tool number will depend on model and/or engine application). Position opposite end of this hose tool to an approved gasoline draining station. Activate fuel pump and drain tank until empty.

    If electric fuel pump is not operating, tank must be lowered for fuel draining. Refer to following procedures.

    FUEL TANK REMOVAL
    1. Disconnect negative battery cable at battery.

          1. Remove two fuel tank strap nuts. Position both tank support straps away from tank.
          2. Carefully lower right side of tank while feeding both fuel hoses through access hole in body. Fuel Tank Full And Not Drained Using DRB Scan Tool: To prevent fuel loss through hoses, keep left side of tank higher than right side while lowering. Do not allow hose openings to drop lower than top of tank.
          3. Continue lowering tank until clear of vehicle. Place tank on floor with left side (hose side) higher than right side
            1. Drain tank by removing fuel fill hose at tank. Fuel fill hose is largest of 2 hoses. Insert the drain hose (from an approved gasoline draining station) into hose opening. Drain tank until empty.
