If screw on filter, remove and wrap threads with two wraps of teflon tape- like plumbers use. If clamp on- replace clamp with new one- and tighten it doen well. Inspect for cracked line at filter.....

When blazer sets over 4 or 5 hrs has to crank several times before starting


The fuel pump is designed to turn on for a couple of seconds and prime with the key on. This is normal. If there is an extended crank, the fuel pressure may be bleeding back into the tank through the check valve of the fuel pump or there is an injector leak/fuel pressure regulator leak causing the pressure to bleed off causing the extended crank. Install a fuel pressure gague and monitor the pressure to see if it bleeds off to 0. If it does, one of the afore mentioned is causing the problem

Put a new fuel filter on my ford galaxy 2007 1.8tdci 125ps when driving some times feels like no fuel engine stops and goes again


Recheck fittings on filter. Leak on side toward tank can be so small it does not leak fuel, but still sucks in air.

New filter new fuel pump won't stay running


Well your engine has a carb, so it could be dirt in the carb, or a vac leak, or several other possible causes.
Does the choke close when the engine is first started ? Have you checked the fuel line to see if the pump is providing gas ?

Where is the fuel filter on a 1997 mercury villager located and how did change it


  • Relieve the pressure in the fuel system by first removing the engine compartment relay panel cover on the left side. Then, remove the fuel pump relay from the relay pane and start the engine. Let it idle until it stalls, and then crank the engine for about 5 seconds to make sure the pressure was released. Turn the ignition off.

    Disconnect the negative battery cable. Raise and support the Mercury Villager. Remove the fuel hose clamps, and then disconnect and plug the hoses to prevent them from leaking fuel. Take the fuel filter out of the bracket.

  • 3

    Install the new filter in the bracket with the arrow pointing toward the engin in direction that fuel flows through the system. Connect the fuel hoses to the new filter. Put on the hose clamps and tighten them. Make sure they are properly tightened so there are no fuel leaks, and that pressure is maintained at about 36 in-lbs.

    Lower the vehicle and reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine of your Mercury Villager, and check for leaks. Make repairs if necessary.

    1998 diesel freelader is pinking


    You have a leak somewhere that is letting the fuel system **** in air. This is serious and needs to be taken care of immediately. Check all your lines and fittings for wet spots or signs of fuel leaking and repair. Also double check to make sure your new filter is on tight and no fittings have been put on crossthreaded. Hope this helps.
