Fuel filter problems


Well if your fuel filter is bad the car will be sluggish and once you locate the filter disconnect the battery and remove the filter and blow into it from the side that faces the gas tank and the fuel inside should blow out and be sooted with a color distortion either gold or black fuel should come out also be sure you have a clean tank as well as fresh gas in it so you don't burn bad gas off in the motor or if you still have old gas in the car run it out and buy some sea foam and run it till it's empty and add new gas in it and put premium gas back in the car with more sea foam and do the refill after you change the filter and reconnect the battery

Not getting fuel to engine. replaced fuel pump and filter,ran for week not not getting fuel again.pump is ok.


Mate,I hope this can help you.There is a fuel filter down on the chassis rail near the fuel tank.It is very often overlooked if you don't know it's there.Also.Check for any inlet manifold leaks.If you have replaced a bad filter and things came good,it may have seemed liked it fixed a hidden problem.
Or.Check the new filter.You may have got a bad dose of gunk or water in the fuel.
To fix water in the tank.Add 1 litre of metholated spirits to 20 litres of fuel.
Hope this may help you with your problem

How do i know if my fuel pump is bad on my 1995


Well that could be a indication of a bad fuel pump, but it could also be a bad or clogged fuel filter, or even a really needing a tune up... When was the last time you changed the plugs and wires? I would do that before I ever got into the fuel pump issue... You can have the pump pressure tested. Do the plugs and wires, next do the fuel and air filters... If that doesnt help have the pressure tested...

My car hesitates and slowsdown while driving


The fuel filter is in the gas tank with the fuel pump - it's actually a 'SOCK' that filters fuel before it enters the pump. Odds are it's not the filter. Odds are you have a Throttle Position Sensor which is going bad (bad spots in the potentiometer). Erratic resistance changes sending BAD signals to the Engine Control Module and Transmission Control Module ECU & TCM. A good technician knows how to check it with an analog ohm meter.

Dumps raw gas into engine


Just a few things to check. Take off the fuel filter and make sure there is no water in it. If you have put in different spark plugs than AC Delco, then change them to AC Delco. If you haven't looked at the plugs or the fuel filter, then it is way past time to replace the filter and new AC Delco spark plugs only. These places that insist that you use Bosch plugs or split fire plugs don't know ****. The Delco plugs are made especially for your engine and will out last those cheap non-working Bosch plugs.
If the fuel filter and plugs don't fix it, make sure your air filter intake isn't stopped up with a bird's nest. Happens a lot. If it still misses after new plugs, you may have a fuel injector sticking.
The bad smoke is the gas-thinned oil passing the rings and unburnt fuel smoke. The missing really bad is most likely fuel soaked spark plugs. Make sure you change the oil while changing the plugs or you will have a redo. Let us know if any of this helps. Dale

Fuel filter engine shut-down fuel system


How do you know it's the fuel filter and not the fuel pump or a bad vacuum hose? If it's the fuel filter why don't you just change it?
Unless you know how to avoid gasoline everywhere take it to a friend's mechanic.
