That is normal. Clean filter means more fuel flow.

Fuel loss. checked fuel line that pinhole was before, no smell, no sign of gas anywhere. took a drive that usually uses 1/4 tank of gas, this time it used 3/4. checked eeverywhere when i got home.


I need year--make--model--engine size to look up vehicle info?
Use a fuel pressure gage, not only check correct fuel pressure, see if fuel pressure will hold for a bit, with everything off. If the pressure drops like a rock, you have a pressure leak. Could be a fuel injector leaking? Where applicable, check fuel pressure regulator vacuum line, if it has gas in the line, the regulator is faulty.
Smell of the crankcase oil dipstick, does it smell like gas? If so, I wouldn't drive it till you fix the problem and change oil and filter as many times as needed to get rid of the gas.
How long since overall tune-up? 02 sensors sensors ever changed? Sometimes a faulty coolant temp sensor may cause the engine to run rich? Are there any driveability issues? Any applicable trouble codes? Don't replace anything unless your testing points in that direction. I can't see anything from here, as far as external leak, anywhere?

Check for intake leaks, intake hose leaks, check mass air flow sensor.
02 sensors will keep setting off a lean code until the air problem is fixed.

Why does the system fuel light keep coming on my Toyota landcruiser workmate 70 series 2009 year car


Check the lines good and change the fuel filters. Look for line leaks, holes, or poor fittings on all ends. You may be sucking in debris within the lines and this could be a problem. Also water in the lines or bad gas can damage filter and pumps. Use Gas additives.

Only the air filter would come into play, if you
have created vacuum leaks in the ducting & thru
unmetered air

Maybe unrelated issues you have there before

The upstream O2 Sensors could be replaced at
100,000 miles & you could look at fuel trim on a
road test

Need new spark plugs every 3 years

Clean the MAF Sensor

How do you replace fuel line on 1996 buick regal 3.8


I am assuming you are referring to the fuel line that runs from the fuel filter back and goes over the fuel tank. If that is the case. 1. remove fuel pump relay, then crank car and allow car to run until it dies (this will purge the fuel from the fuel line, not necessarily required but a good idea). 2. use 2 wrenches to remove line from fuel filter. 3. trace line back over fuel tank until you get to the clip that attaches fuel line to fuel pump. clip is simple to remove just like the one on the outlet side of fuel filter. if looking for the replacement part. hit the junk yards I paid $15 at a you pull a part place verses 85+ through a dealer (this part is not carried by the auto parts places here in GA)

I have a 99 plymouth voyager i had to replace the waterpump and fuel pump now it wont start it cranks over but wont start any ideas ??


We will need more information from you. But you could check to be sure you have gas and that the gas is getting to the engine. For example, is the fuel pump working? Are there any leaks in the fuel line? Is the Gas Filter Plugged? You could also check to see if you are getting Spark at the plugs. Perhaps when you put everything back together from replaceing the waterpump or fuel pump you missed something. Remeber the basics. You need Fuel, Spark and Air for your engine to run. Track it down and be sure you have all 3

1999 grand voyager le how do i replace fuel filter


Hello,

To replace the fuel filter of Your 1999 grand voyager, please follow the steps below, You will be in need of these instruments, Line wrench set, 3/8-inch ratchet and socket set, Replacement fuel filter kit.
  1. Park the 1999 Grand Voyager in a ventilated area and engage the emergency brake,
  2. Walk to the back of the 1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager and completely unscrew the gas cap from the fill neck on the gas tank. Taking the cap off will remove the pressure in the fuel filter.
  3. Jack the back of the 1999 Grand Voyager up and put the jack stands under the rear jack points. Slowly release the jack so that the van is sitting evenly and securely on the jack stands.
  4. Slide under the passenger-side rear of the van behind the tire. Locate the fuel filter that is mounted to the upper part of the gas tank. This type of fuel filter has three fuel lines coming out of it.
  5. Position the drip pan under the gas tank in the general vicinity of the fuel filter. Using a clean rag, compress the fuel lines on the ends. The fuel lines are held to the fuel filter by a plastic clip. Compressing the end of the fuel line will unlock the fuel line from the clip. Pull out on the fuel lines. Do this to all three of the fuel lines.
  6. Remove the bolt from the fuel filter bracket with the 3/8-inch drive ratchet and a 3/8-inch drive socket. Then, pull the fuel filter out of the bracket and put it into the drip pan.
  7. Position the new fuel filter into the bracket. Screw the mounting bolt in and tighten it down tight with the ratchet and socket.
  8. Push all three fuel lines onto the appropriate fuel filter ports. Hook the fuel lines to the same fuel filter ports that they were hooked to on the old filter.
  9. Pull the drip pan out from under the van. Screw the gas cap back onto the fill neck of the gas tank until it clicks. Then, turn the ignition key on and off five different times. Crank the engine on the fifth turn of the ignition. Inspect the new fuel filter for leaks while the engine is running. Then, turn the engine off.
  10. 1999 Grand Voyager back up and pull the jack stands out from under the van. Lower the van back to the ground and slide the jack out.
Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

Fuel filter replacement


need instructions for fuel filter replacement? 1st you'll need to loosen the gas cap to releive the pressure from the gas tank. the fuel filter is located on the frame under your drivers side door. you may need to jack the truck up, if so make sure to use jackstands under the truck for your safety!!follow the fuel line to the filter, a round cylider type canister. use safety glasses, just in case the fuel leaks, for your eye safety,i recommend that!! there will be a plastic retaining clip on both sides of the fuel filter, you'll need a pair of needle nose pliers to remove those, one at a time, the filter will have fuel still in it so be careful as not to spill it into or onto yourself. after you reve each clip the filter can be removed by pulling gently on each fuel line. replace ment is the same way, just make sure the fuel lines are connected properly, the filter will be marked with an arrow showing fuel flow the arrow on filter should point towards the engine, make sure both fuel lines are pushed in, and plastic clips snap into place, when you start truck, make visual check for leaks!! if leaking, the plastic clips are'nt properly installed. thank you for choosing fixya.com and as always, if you need further assistance please post your question and we will be happy to assist you.
