It could be the filter is not leaking gas, but still is leaking enough so that air is being sucked in. Test all fittings.

Need to tune up my truck what will i need to replace


Hi Jeffery, You forgot to say if it has a petrol or diesel engine. In the case of a petrol engine, replace the the oil filter, fuel filter and air filter, and the spark plugs. Other than these items there is little else to do, as the engine performance is entirely controlled by the management system. The only difference between diesel and petrol powered vehicles during service, is that with diesel there are no spark plugs. Remember in the case of a diesel to fill the fuel filter with clean fuel before fitting it to the housing. Doing so will help in expelling the air from the system and make start up easier. Also fill the oil filter with the same multi grade engine oil used in service, so that on start up the engine is lubricated more quickly. Regards John

VW CADDY 1996 KEEPS CUTTING OUT


It is possible that the float level is set too high or even that some part of the air cover assembly is putting on something. It sounds strange that the engine seemed to run alright with the cover removed. It's possible that it could be a combination of things and you would have too know what to look for.
VW engines especially.Regards

I was told that my air flow sensor needed to be changed in my 2000 grand prix super charger. can you tell me where it is located on the engine and what it looks like?


I assume that someone looked at the "Check Engine" codes and saw this sensor error. If that is true, you will find the sensor inside that air intake that connects the air filter housing to the engine throttle housing. If the code is not why you are replacing it, first be completely sure you don't have any vacuum leaks. The intake tube will be a large rubber tube that has maybe a couple electrical connections and maybe a smaller hose. At any rate there is at least one connection to the air flow sensor. Disconnect the electrical connections and take that hose loose from the air filter housing. Take the filter housing off. Then you should be able to take the air intake tube off the throttle housing. It will have a fairly normal hose clamp. When you put this back together, be sure all the connections are tight and that there is nothing that might be an air leak. A leak in the intake allows air into the engine that has not gone through the sensor causes some serious performance problem by the fuel/air mixture being too lean. Should you see a suspicious connection of a vacuum hose anywhere, fix that first. You don't say what the problem is but a vacuum leak could look like an air sensor problem, unless the engine code specifically points to the sensor. Now that you have the intake tube off the engine you can look in and see the sensor in the tube. It is usually mounted by some small screws to the intake tube. It should be easy for you to take out of the intake tube. While you have the intake tube off, it's a good idea to clean the throttle plate and throat. Buy some spray cleaner that says it if good for throttle and does not harm oxygen sensors. Follow the can directions. Clean the throttle plate, then open the throttle full and spray all the inside if the throat that you can see. Put it all back together. The engine my be a little hard to start because of the cleaner you sprayed into the throttle throat. If there was an engine code you need to clear that so the light goes out and the old code doesn't remain in the system. To clear the code, disconnect the battery for about 5 minutes.
Good luck. I hope this is helpful.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How to change air filter?


Look in the front, passenger side corner of the Ford Explorer, it will be just behind the windshield washer fluid reservoir.
Loosen the clips that hold the housing unit closed. Remove the lid and set it aside.
Remove the old filter from the housing unit. Clean the unit out making sure to remove large pieces of debris.
Replace the air filter with a new one that is compatible with the year make and model of your Ford Explorer.
Turn off the car's engine before attempting to change the filter, the filter acts as a barrier against the engine backfiring. Don't start the car unless the air filter housing has it's lid in place.
Put the lid back on the filer housing unit. Don't catch any part of the filter between the lid and the base or unfiltered air can leak into the engine. Reclamp the clips to secure the lid in place.

It ended up being the fuel filter housing drain / shut-off valve. waited for the engine to cool overnight/started engine & rechecked immediatly before engine started warming up & it leaked immediatly. It apparently was a cold only leak. thanks for your attention..

Difference between an Air Filter and Air Conditioning filter


The air conditioning filter that your manual speaks of is known as a ''cabin filter'', it is much differant then your engine air filter. It filters the incoming air into your vehicles interior. So if someone has told you to replace your ''air filter'' they are more then likely speaking of your ''engine'' air fitler. You should check your engine air filter every oil change. If it shows signs of dirt, then replace it. Hope this helps =)
