SOURCE: Ford F100 Fuel System

There are a couple things here. In the first place if you can pump fuel with the pump off the engine and pumped by hand doesn't mean that it will pump on the engine. See the stroke on the engine is very short, it only moves like 1/4 inch. So you could have a bad pump even though you are pumping by hand. The gas cap, will have no effect on this model. Yes the pick-up tube has a filter on the bottom of it, and it could be stopped up. You can remove this unit up through the top of the tank, got to wiggle it and turn it sideways, and if you can find a used one( New ones scarce and expensive) by going to used parts place, and look for 1967 - 1972, they are all alike. Lots a luck in fixing this great ole truck.

SOURCE: fuel is filling front tank from rear on 89 ford e150

Fords had this problem. I believe they actually had a recall notice about this problem. You have a fuel tank switch on the dash somewhere. This is where your problem is located. The switch has gone bad that switches from front tank to the rear tank. About $40.00 for the part.

SOURCE: i got gas leak coming from the fuel line

First off, what kind of vehicle do you have? I assume it is one that has an electric fuel pump in the gas tank, so that is what my answer will be geared to.
On the gas tank there are several lines. The most important ones for this conversation are the ones that deliver fuel to the engine and the one that returns the excess fuel back to the tank. They are usually different in size.
The larger one delivers the fuel and the smaller one returns the excess fuel back to the tank. Either one may be the culprit in this scenero.The tank is usually connected by a high pressure flexible fuel line to a stainless fuel line resembeling a brake line. At times this flex line may develope a leak for varrious reasons. It could be something rubbing against the line, it could be the crimped connection went bad and is leaking, etc. If it is your flex line, which it probably is there is a repair kit you can purchase to fix it. I have only been able to find this repair kit at NAPA. I've tried many auto parts stores and they are the only ones that carry it. The use of it is very simple actually. You find the leak in your line, which by the way is harder than it sounds and usually involves removing the gas tank. In which case you will need a special tool to disasemble the gas line from the tank. Once the leak is located you cut the line. You then have to place the remaining flex hose in boiling hot water for at least 10 seconds, which makes it soft and insert a splice fiting into it. When the line cools, it will shrink tight on the connector. You the do the same with the hose that came with the repair kit. Then do the same with the other end and install the fitting which connects to the gas tank. You should now be in business.
BTW. I have to do this very thing tomorrow.
Good Luck! and let me know if this helps you.

How do I replace the fuel filter on a Chrysler 1997 town and country 3.8 lxi

  • Relieve the fuel system pressure by removing the fuel pump relay from the power distribution center. Start the engine and allow it to run until it stalls. Try to start it again and let it run until it stalls. Repeat this procedure until it no longer will start. Turn the ignition off.
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable and raise the vehicle. Support the fuel tank with a transmission jack. Locate the fuel filter on the top of your Chrysler Town & Country fuel tank.
  • Remove the fuel line from the front of the tank and then the ground strap. Next, remove the inboard side of the fuel tank straps and front T-strap fastener. Lower the tank about 6 inches.
  • Detach the fuel lines from the fuel pump module and then remove the fuel filter. Put the new filter in its place. Tighten the fuel filter bolts to 40 inch pounds.
  • Reconnect the fuel lines to the fuel pump module and reposition the tank. Replace the front T strap fastener and tighten it to 250 inch pounds. Put the inboard fuel tank straps back and tighten them to 40 foot pounds.
  • Put on the ground strap and connect the fuel line in the front of the tank. Start the engine of your Town & Country and check for leaks.

    I just fueled my F-250 5.4 liter gas powered truck. Now it won't keep running .

    If you have debris in the tank, you must clean the fuel tank. That usually requires removing it from the vehicle. That is not an easy job, it is best left to a garage to do. First try to disconnect the in-line fuel filter and place a bucket under the line and see if fuel is flowing and then if any foreign matter is found in the fuel in the bucket. If you do, then you probably need to have to fuel tank cleaned out. Your new filter may already be clogged up. That would mean it is doing its job filtering the fuel before it reaches the engine.

    Good luck

    1) you might want to check the fuel filler tube to see if there any rust, resulting in fuel leaking out whenever you filled the tank.
    2) check the fuel tank fill-up hose (sill hose) might have a hole- causing fuel leak when filling up the gas tank.
    3) you might want to contact your dealer, there was a recall regarding the tank filler pipe and cap problems.

    Where is the gas filter on 2008 suzukixl7

    08 XL7
    on most newer cars its in the tank, why do you ask?
    engine dont run right
    or reading the wrong glove box operators guide under service?

    you open hood, see that fuel real and follow that feed line to the tank
    if no filter seen its not there. , easy and works on all cars made.
    here ill look it up at alldata for you, no engine option size stated. so
    ill guess wrong,, so ?///// 4 engines offered
    why not post reason for asking...????????
    FSM quote
    The fuel filter (1) is located in the primary fuel tank module. The paper filter element traps particles in the fuel that may damage the fuel injection system. The filter housing is made to withstand maximum fuel system pressure, exposure to fuel additives, and changes in temperature. (end quote)

    so why ask? we cant guess your reasons.?? read it.

    NEVER SMOKE WHEN WORKING AROUND OR NEAR GASOLINE! MAKE SURE THAT THERE IS NO ACTIVE IGNITION SOURCE NEAR YOUR WORK AREA! 1970-83 Carbureted Engines The fuel filter is located on the right inner fender in the engine compartment. It is a disposable cartridge type.
    1. Using a pair of pliers, expand the hose clamp on one side of the filter, and slide the clamp further down the hose, past the point to which the filter pipe extends. Remove the other clamp in the same manner.
    2. Grasp the hoses near the ends and twist them gently to pull them free from the filter pipes.
    3. Pull the filter from the clip and discard.
    4. Install the new filter into the clip. Push the hoses onto the filter pipes, and slide the clamps back into position. Start the engine and check for leaks. Fig. 1: Fuel filter - 1970-79 85851035.gif
      Fig. 2: Fuel filter - 1980-83 85851036.gif
    1984-86 Carbureted Engines The fuel filter is located on the inside of the frame above the left rear spring front shackle. Changing the filter is VERY awkward. Since it is in-line and below tank level, fuel will pour from the fuel lines when they are disconnected from the filter. The only way of preventing this, is to siphon all of the gasoline from the tank before replacing the filter. Another possible method is to clamp and plug the fuel line, but this is not recommended because of the danger of leaking fuel or damage which could occur to the fuel line when clamped. It would, therefore, be a good idea to run the tank almost dry before changing the filter. Once the tank is dry, disconnect the fuel lines at the filter, unbolt the old filter and install a new one. Reconnect the fuel lines, fill the tank, start the engine and check for leaks. Fig. 3: Fuel filter - 1984-86 85851037.gif

    Fuel Injected Engines WARNING
    Never attempt to remove the fuel filter without first relieving the fuel system pressure!
    1. Release the fuel pressure from the fuel line as follows:
      1. Remove the fuel pump fuse at the fuse box.
      2. Start the engine.
      3. After the engine stalls, crank the engine two or three times to make sure that the fuel pressure is released.
      4. Turn the ignition switch OFF and reinstall the fuel pump fuse.
    2. Loosen the hose clamps at the fuel inlet and outlet lines then slide each line off the filter nipples.
    3. Remove the fuel filter.
    4. Replace the fuel filter. Always be sure to use new hose clamps. Fig. 7: Fuel filter - 1986-88 VG30i 85851038.gif

    Diesel 1989 F-250 set too long and will roll over

    You may have to bleed the fuel system. There may be a very small air leak in the fuel supply line and after a long time idle, the fuel seeps bac into the tank, leaving an air lock in the pipe. When you go to start, this air makes its way into your injection pump & needs to be bled out before the engine will start. Begin from your fuel filter bleed valve, next the injection pump using the primer pump to transfer the fuel. Next loosen off the injector pipes and crank the engine over until fuel sprays form all the joints. Tighten injector pipes and start. It may run a bit rough for to begin with, but will soon even out. If it doesn't start, repeat bleeding of injectors.

    I have 95 silverado 5.7 rebuilt motor it starts good runs good

    You are not getting enough of one or more of the following;
    1. Fuel 2. Air 3. Spark 4. Vacuum
    See possible causes and fixes below 1. Fuel -If carburated, may need to be rebuilt, no way to tell w/o dissassembly and looking at valves/jets -If fuel injected, injectors could be dirty or malfunctioning, are they old? 
    Q -  does engine run smooth at any speed? If not, not all cylinders may be firing
    2.  Air - is air filter clean? Is there debris in air box?
    3. Spark - does engine sound like all cylinders firing? If so, spark should be fine. But have you checked plugs recently? Changing all plugs, especially b/c V8, could really help Check for gap and corrossion/wear patterns to ascertain engine/cylinder running conditions. If you are unsure how to read plugs, then brush up on the subject (like I have to).
    4.  Vacuum - MOST OVERLOOKED ISSUE in general engine work, all engines require vacuum to run various valves and components, vacuum leaks are more easily tested using gauge, bought/borrowed or performed in shop.
    Check all these things, maybe fuel filter, too.
    Special note: there is a chance if you have run tank (or someone else did) to empty repeated times that debris from tank has built up in fuel pump's internal filter, which is before fuel line filter. Only by removing and inspecting pump can this be checked. Inspect all previously mentioned items, then check fuel pump. If all that doesn't work, then give me a terrible grade and repost and I'll try again...
