My friend has a 2007 Suzuki forenza,she ran out of gas and filled IT up now it won't start.please can somebody help.

I believe that vehicle has a tank mounted fuel pump with a sock. The fuel filter should be mounted on the driver side frame rail inside, close to the driver seat.
I suspect she either has a plugged fuel filter and / or sock. Running it out of gas allowed the system to suck the contaminants and chunks into the sock or fuel filter - most likely both. That vehicle has fuel injection, which has a high pressure fuels system. Changing the filter usually isn't too hard, but replacing that sock is very labor intensive. I recommend changing the fuel filter and see it that fixes it -but, ideally, replacement of the sock should be done too. If you decide to change the filter, I can give you better detailed instructions and warnings on the job, as it is not so labor intensive but can be dangerous if you don't take proper precautions to protect yourself from spraying gasoline.
Hope this helps!!

How do I repair a 171 and a 174 code on my 2005 ford ranger?

Google the codes to learn what they are

Then diagnose the system that set the fault codes,
to find a problem

Fuel Filter-- as you know--has no wires going to it

The fuel filter will last for 3 to 6 years, if their is
nothing in the fuel tank to get it clogged up

Changing a fuel filter is NOT a FIX for Anything

Running rough

Most likely it would be the fuel filter. Sometimes debris can get stuck in the filter and clog it up. Letting it sit lets debris settle hence the cold start being fine. I suggest changing the fuel filter. If that does not fix the problem change the pump also. If you are looking for a slim chance but possible cheap fix try putting some fuel injector cleaner through the system. This might fix the problem even if it is the fuel filter but be warned it is a temporary fix and the fuel injector cleaner does leave a gummy substance on the fuel filter and might make your problem worse. So if you choose this route you should change your fuel filter in the not to distant future.

I was changing the fuel filter on my 92 Honda prelude and I bent/cracked the line coming into the filter and I was hoping I could cut off the fittings for my stock filter, buy an in line filter and fuel...

Best to fix it right buy a new fuel line .An inline filter couldnt handle the pressure cause with fuel injection you have alot more fuel pressure and using clamps you are risking your life with a good chance of a fire

I have an 86 Oldsmobile delta 88 and it has no power it slows down really fast when u start to go up a hill how can i fix that

Check your inline fuel filter. If the filter is half full of gunk, some fuel flows but when you start up a hill, there is a call for more fuel from your pump and this additional flow causes the gunk to become packed against your outlet stopping all of the fuel flow.Changing the fuel filter solves this.

I just went to drive home after work and if seems like my trailblazer is not getting any fuel. is there a reset on the fuel pump or something that is easy to fix this problem? My other thought is that...

Before changing anything, you need to verify the fuel pressure at the fuel rail. If the pressure is low then the fuel pump or filter are suspect. The filter is accessible under the truck, but the fuel pump is inside the gas tank.

My 92 GMC Sierra starts and runs great for 5 to 10 minutes then chokes it self out like its getting too much fuel. I changed Cap, rotor, plugs,plug wires. Do I keep changing sensors and electronic valves...

Hello, I recommend changing the fuel filter. Old trucks are known to do this and I found that changing the fuel filter helps alot. After the filter change add some fuel injector cleaner and put some gas in it and see if this helps. It would not hurt to change your air filter and change your oil. Always do the cheapest things first especially in this economy. If this does not help let me know. This could also be your fuel cut off solenoid. In most vehicles these get hot and the truck just shuts off and you think it may be a loose battery wire or bad spark plug gap; sometimes it's just this solenoid. You could replace it but you can only get them at a dealership and there not cheap. You could also bypass it but I do not recommend that becuase in a case of an accident the fuel will not be shut off. I hope this fixes your problem.

2003 5.9 cold start ..must crank engine over at least three separate times for it to start

could be a number of problems? low fuel pressure caused by old dirty fuel filter and or dirty air filter. these would be the easy fixes, another problem could be cloged injectors and may need cleaning. you might try some good injector cleaners after changing/checking the fuel filter.

Changing air filter and fuel filter

Both are under the hood and easy to get to. As for the Air Filter nobody beats K&N they are simply the best. Any fuel filter thats the right one will do.
