Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Sorry, if this is a silly question, but is a new Fuel Filter installed automatically/come with a new Fuel Pump? Or do you have to buy a new Fuel Filter and attach to the new Fuel Pump before installin

Gas gauge has never worked since I've owned truck. Husband runs truck very low on gas a lot. Truck would not start, had a new Fuel Pump installed (but gas gauge still did not work). 90 days later, car would not start. Since pump was under warranty, received a new pump and had it installed. Gas gauge now works, but the truck will not start. Can tap the gas tank sometimes and it starts. Truck also cuts off when idling. Don't know what to do. Advice, suggestions please and thank you!

Has the filter ever been changed? Need to know year and model of the truck. Fuel filters can be near the tank or under the hood. Filters are usually separate from the fuel pump.

It does seem to be a fuel problem, If your engine is fuel injected the fuel pump is in the gas tank. As far as the ground it is grounded through its harness and mounting.. First thing I would do is put a fuel gauge on the fuel rail fitting and check fuel pressures. Pump wil run for a few seconds when the key is turn ON., and then stop ( assuming its working ) A lack of pressure willindicate an inop pump, or even possibly a clog in the fuel filter. Let me know.

Fairly common problem with GM vehicles. The sending unit in your tank has a small circuit board that an arm is attached to which moves up and down according to your fuel level. This circuit board and arm are not making good contact. Unfortunately the only good solution is to replace this part.

Do i have to buy another fuel pump for my car because my 4year old put sand in my gas tank


No, but you have to have the tank removed, drained and thoroughly cleaned. If left, the sand will end up wearing away parts from the fuel tank on the fuels travel to the exhaust manifold. The worst bit would be sand getting stuck in the oil on the piston rings and wearing the cylinder bore away.

Im searching for the location of my fuel filter


searching why, (buy an FSM and no more guessing...? )
basic service?
low fuel pressure? why?

ive got near a 1/2 million + miles on jeeps since 1988.
never stranded, but i do my service,.
my last chick-o-dee. was 99. with 5sp, all with that.
my 08 JK same.
the fuel filters on old loop systems is in the front of the tank
then later, , EPA forced most parts into tank with the new loop
or dead head systems. (EPA wants fuel cold .so, that is it)
i dont find parts hard to find, jeeps excel at that. vast resources.
nor hard electrical if you had a 2007+ then that be different.

id just crawl under car and gander, at fuel line but here we go
ill do it , online for you.
4Liter 98
options , with the 20gallon tank there is filter. on top of pump , in tank.
that means to me there are different filters there. by size tank .
if you dont see a filter, that means its in the tank.

so

ill paste the FSM page on this topic

he fuel filter is an integral component of the fuel pressure regulator, which is mounted on top of the fuel pump module, located in the fuel tank. When the fuel filter/regulator assembly requires service, the fuel tank must be removed from the vehicle, however, the fuel pump module does not need to be removed.
  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. Relieve the fuel system pressure. Refer to Section 5 for the proper procedure.
  3. Remove the fuel tank assembly.
  4. Clean the area around the fuel filter/regulator.
  5. Disengage the retaining clamp from the top of the filter/regulator assembly. Discard the retaining clamp.
  6. Using 2 small prying tools, pry the filter/regulator assembly out from the top of the fuel pump module. The filter/regulator assembly will unsnap from the fuel pump module.
  7. Remove and discard the mounting gasket below the filter/regulator.
  8. Before discarding the fuel filter/pressure regulator assembly, inspect the assembly to verify that the O-rings are intact. If the smallest of the 2 O-rings cannot be found on the bottom of the filter/regulator, it may be necessary to remove it from the fuel inlet passage in the fuel pump module.
  9. Clean the recessed area in the pump module where the filter/regulator assembly is to be installed.
  10. Check the replacement filter/regulator assembly to make sure that the new O-rings are already installed on the assembly.
  11. Apply a small amount of clean engine oil to the O-rings.
  12. Install a new gasket on top of the fuel pump module.
  13. Press the new fuel filter/pressure regulator assembly into the top of the fuel pump module until it snaps into position (a positive click must be heard or felt).
  14. The arrow on top of the fuel pump module should be pointed towards the front of the vehicle (12 O'clock position).
  15. Turn the filter/regulator assembly until the supply tube (fitting) is pointed to the 11 O'clock position.
  16. Install new retainer clamp (the clamp snaps over the top of the filter/regulator and locks to the flanges on the pump module).
  17. Install the fuel tank assembly.
  18. Connect the negative battery cable.
  19. end

how is that ?

No fuel to fuel rail


When you say "bad gas" , what are you referring to? Was it dirty or did it have water in it? And how did you discover this?

Sorry to ask silly questions but just trying to get an idea of the background! If it was water you may find that it has now all separated and is on the bottom of the tank- the first place for your pump to pick up from.

You may have a pump that is jammed due to dirt or sediment depending on what was the problem with the fuel. Regardless Im thinking that a fuel tank removal and flush is going to be essential in the near future.

If you're not getting fuel pressure out of pump, check power supply to pump. That way around you know if it is an electrical problem or a pump issue- inside or outside the tank!!

Sorry if im a bit general but limited info from your question. Hope it helps??!!

1998 gmc jimmie 4.3, 2 wd. wont start. getting no gas at the fuel bleeder valve. has new fuel pump and new fuel filter. started and ran fine after new pump and filter install. drove 15 miles and parked all...


Check to see if fuel is getting to the filter. Maybe too much dirt in lines & plugged filter? If fuel at filter, put hose in place of filter JUST LONG enough to see if fuel is getting to fuel rail.

How would I replace my fuel Filter


The fuel filter is an integral component of the fuel pressure regulator, which is mounted on top of the fuel pump module, located in the fuel tank. When the fuel filter/regulator assembly requires service, the fuel tank must be removed from the vehicle, however, the fuel pump module does not need to be removed.
  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. You dont have to relieve your fuel systems pressure because your jeep has an automatic bleeder.
  3. Remove the fuel tank assembly.
  4. Clean the area around the fuel filter/regulator.

Fuel Filter Removal & Installation To Remove:
  1. Remove fuel tank.
  2. Remove fuel pump/fuel gauge sending unit.
  3. Remove fuel filter from fuel pump/fuel gauge sending unit.
To Install:
  1. Install fuel filter to fuel pump/fuel gauge sending unit.
  2. Install fuel pump/fuel gauge sending unit.
  3. Install fuel tank.

However, I would look at ignition or tune up issues rather than simply a fuel filter.

Find out what the engine problem is by having the engine's computer scanned through the OBD-II port.

Fuel pump/filter?


I would lean towards the pump. Some fuel pumps can be expensive, and it can be dangerous to work on fuel tanks, make sure your fuel tank is empty if you are going to remove it (they are deceivingly heavy)

from the description you gave, I would say your fuel pump is dying, and starting to fail. The whining noise is it struggling to do its job. You might find someone that can service the fuel pump (clean it, inspect it, fix worn out components and contacts, otherwise get it replaced.

My recommendation: Get a service technician (aka Mechanic) to take a look and ensure it is the fuel pump that has failed before you go buy a new one (because it may be a couple hundred dollars).
I hope this helps, Let me know what you find out.

PS - If you have never replaced the fuel filter, do it, they are rather cheap and easy to replace.

My wife has had an issue with her 06 dodge caravan that once she puts gas in and goes to take off it stalls and looses power. When I try to rev my engine all it does is go to 3000 RPM and then it sputters...


Greetings, assuming the fuel tank was contaminated enough to cause the fuel filter to become partially obstructed, it would not be good advice to install Techron fuel treatment or any other fuel treatment after installing a new fuel filter as doing so would could very well contaminate the new filter and / or new fuel pump. The vehicle in question has an engine rev limiter while the transmission is in park or neutral so the 2600 - 3000 and sputter are normal which is the rev limiter kicking in. There is not enough information in the complaint to determine if a new fuel filter and fuel pump are justified or not. Personally, I would inspect the plus (+) power lead to the fuel pump first with a volt meter to see if you are getting at least 12.7 volts and if you are, then remove the fuel filter from the fuel tank and inspect before purchasing a new filter. I would test the fuel pump for correct pressure if I found the fuel filter to be fairly clean and correct voltage to the pump. It is not good advice to buy parts before you know what the true problem is.
