If so, change the fuel filter! Simple job, but be safe and use only battery powered flashlight and mop up all spilled fuel. To check filter, use piece of rubber hose on end from tank and see if you can easily blow thru filter. BE CAREFUL as gas will spray from other end of filter. Catch all fuel in can and you can examine fuel to see if it contains rust or water.

2001 CHEVY MALIBU WONT TURN OVER, UNLESS YOU SPRAY STARTING FLUID ON IT, THEN IT STARTS FOR A FEW SECONDS. HOW DO YOU REMOVE THE LINES IF IT IS THE FUEL FILER TO REPLACE IT.


lots of notes in here about overheating cars, everyone wants to replace the thermostat thinking that will fix it, but it never does. likewise lots of folks thinking their fuel filter is blocked solid. it is so seldom the fuel filter. There is a filter on the fuel pump take up before it even gets to the filter so they just are not going to get totally blocked up unless the gas tank is corroding away on the inside. but your issue does seem to be a fuel supply issue. i would be thinking more about the fuel pump or pressure regulator than the filter. have someone check the fuel pressure at the injectors.

My 2001 mercury mountaineer wont start. It wants to. I'm thinking it could be the fuel filter. What do you think?



recommended replacement of fuel filter is at 30K miles.usually a condition of 'starving' for fuel is noted if it's seriously clogged.
most often a 'no start' condition is caused by a fault in the ignition system.spark plugs should be replaced @ 60K.
check fuel pump inertia [crash] switch behind panel on right side of luggage compartment.push button to re-set.

Hi i have a '95 lincoln mark 8, and recently i have had problems starting my car, it tries to start but wont crank over, but i only have this problem some times, the past couple of days i have'nt had any...


two things to check, when was the late time you had a tune-up done ??? next, get a fuel pressure tester. hook up to the fuel rail. key on, engine off, pressure could be at least 35 - 45 PSI. get a hanes manual #59010. it will help you troubleshoot. fuel filter is a good place to start. should replace filter every 2 years.

Hi,
Fuel filter is under the car under a cover near the petrol tank,if you are a competent mechanic I will tell you how to test the fuel system otherwise take to a Bosch fuel injection specialist as these are a nightmare to test let me know as will take ages to type answer.

1988 gmc k1500 wont start


hi, check the connections at the ecm,i think it's under pass front seat,i've had a couple of those years loose injector signal at ecm connector,if you have a test light you can unplug injectors and test across terminals ,it's a 12v signal at inj ,if lights flash on both while cranking try plugging in one at a time and see if either sprays, if one does and not the other, you would have a shorted injector

DEFINITELY change the filter...It's only about ten times past its useful life. Then check fuel pump, pump relay and fuse. (doubt if you'll have to!!)
