1999 dodge caravon sport vaper lock


I had a 1999 Grand Caravan 3.3L and never had this problem and I lived in Fla. at the time but other vehicles that I've seen this problem in. First, is this vapor lock between the gas tank and the engine or in the engine compartment? If it's between the gas tank and the engine, you might have a rusted pin hole in the steel fuel line or sometimes there might be a section or rubber line in the fuel line where there might be movement in the system. If so, look for a rotted hose or a wet spots on the fuel line from the gas tank to the engine compartment. A tiny pin hole can leak gas out and/or air in and if it's small enough the gas can evaporate before it hits the ground. If it has started locking up in the engine compartment only after all these years, I'd have the fuel pump pressure checked. If this is the case and if it hadn't vapor locked since 1999, up until now the fuel pressure has been adequate to keep the fuel in it's liquid state in the heated environment of the engine compartment. If the pressure has gone low and the fuel line is bolted to something hot like the water pump, for example, like it was on my 1968 307 Chevy Bel Air, the fuel will boil hence, vapor lock. If this is your problem and you can't get it fixed right away, follow the fuel line up from the frame and look for it to be routed, again, near / onto something hot. If you can get it loose and away from the hot area without kinking the steel tube, this may help for a while. I don't know you or how much you know but I would advise against cutting the line and adding rubber hose as clamping a hose to a smooth steel line will eventually leak
and possibly cause a fire. If you know what you're doing or know someone who does, you could use a flairing tool and add more steel line if necessary. In any case, be careful. In the long run, it is always better to repair it or have it repaired properly. Good luck. Jeff M.

Without seeing it it is a hard thing to diagnose. You could have an injector leaking, possibly a fuel line. Do you smell gas? Sometimes with fords around the fuel filter leaks because of a broken clamp. The o rings around the fuel injectors could be leaking, or one of the rubber fuel lines. If you go off road alot, you could have a pin hole in one of the rubber or metal lines. Check and get back with me and I will do the best I can to help. Hope tis helps.

Have trouble code 45 on a 1993 s10 blazer 4.3l. Have replaced oxygen sensor, did not help


1994 Chevrolet S10 Blazer 4.3L, Vin W Customer Concern: DTC 45 The spark plugs are black on both banks. Right bank plugs are damp. Removed the tuning valve and looked inside the plenum. Can see a washed/clean area on the right side. Fuel pressure is good, it holds when the pump stops. Tests/Procedures: 1. Remove the upper intake plenum cover and inspect for a fuel leak at the fuel pressure regulator.

2. Inspect the fuel pressure regulator and return lines and fittings at the left side of the plenum.

3 Replace the Central Multipoint Fuel Injection (CMFI) unit. Potential Causes: Leaking Fuel Line - One or more may have a problem.
Leaking Fuel Pressure Regulator
Tech Tips: The fuel pressure regulator may only leak at a cold or hot engine, only with vacuum applied, or only without vacuum applied. The leaking at the fuel lines and fittings have as often been the result of repairs as the initial cause of the problem. Handle the lines and fittings carefully. The fuel pressure regulator is a integral part of the Central Multi-port Fuel Injection (CMFI) unit. Any failure requires entire unit replacement.

How do you fix the oil coolant line?


I assume there is a pin-hole in the line? Easiest way is to find the leak, cut it out, and reconnect with the right size fuel hose (should be 1/4" or 3/8"). Make sure to use small hose clamps to connect the hose

Can I repair a fuel line leak with tape or any sort of sealant so that I can drive it to a shop? 1993 Oldsmobile Ciera


not sealant But get small length of rubber hose,,, small ,as in just larger than metal line then get two small screw band clamps cut the leak spot with bolt cutters QUICKLY insert hose on two ends of line with CLAMPS ALREADY ON HOSE screw them tight stop at service dest inform them of gas leak so they can take precautions.

they will ask fix or replace say FIX so they don't chage you $120 an hour shop time to bend fuel line hose to replace entire line... NOT necessary..old school repair if fine replace line is $$$ and not neccessary very little pressure in fuel line mostly gravity flow you may even say its more practical

Fuel gauge not working past year, it kept giving false readings


Dont believe so as you have been driving it for a year and its only recently leaked so no link there.More likely the mechanic who fixed your car got it going again.Loose terminal, bad earth or some thing small enough to fix as a service/good will without charging you for it.
