Remove the fuel cap. Wear safety glasses and drape a towel over your hands as you disconnect the fuel line. Let the car sit until completely cold before doing this as a hot engine could start a fire. Have a fire extinguisher handy just in case something should ignite the fuel

Replaced intank fuel pump on a 2003 Mitsubishi Galant, car wants to start but acts like it's out of gas. I have 1/4 tank of gas..... what do I need to do to get it started????


Did you release the air in the system. You may have an air pocket stuck in the fuel line system. If it is fuel injected, be careful because the line pressure can be extremely high and if not released properly it can leak out under high pressure. Be sure you changed the fuel filter as well. Things can find there way into the lines when removing and installing things in line. Check that you have sufficient fuel pressure at the carb or fuel injection system. The system requires to be pressurized so that the injectors operate correctly,

Car won't stay started


check air filter to see if it is clogged. if it isn't check your fuel filters. you have one on the fire wall and one underneath the car on the driver side connecting the engine to the gas tank. open your truck, uncover the inside right fender panel, push the button on the switch and release the button. the button should pop out. the button has wires going to it. it is attached to the well wall under the cover you removed. try to start your car several timestil it will not even try to start. this release the gas pressure in your gas line. now you can replace both filters. after you replaced both gas filters, push the button in to reset it. try to start your engine, pump the gas pettle several times while you are cranking the engine. this will put gas pressure back in your gas line and into your engine. the gas filters should be changed according to manufacture time requirements. call ford parts department and ask how often the gas filters should be changed. any other information can be obtained at any auto parts company. try this first and hope it's not your fuel pump. your fuel pump is inside the gas tank. my fuel pump part caused $300. i recommend you buy it from ford. you don't want any gas leaks and ford will match it up if you need it.

Location of fuel filter on 2005 VW convertible


The filter lives under the car near the right rear tire (just in front of it). BE VERY CAREFUL- If you break the quick disconnects on the fuel lines it will cost you a fortune !! $500.00+ to replace the fuel lines. The fuel lines are pressurized so you will need to relieve the pressure before you try and remove the filter or you will get a face full of gas. The filter comes off by pushing the fuel line toward the filter and then pushing the quick release button on the fuel line. The fuel line should then decouple fairly easily. Before you start the car cycle the key on and off 2 or 3 times to refill the filter.

Trying to remove a fuel filter From a 2001 VW beetle. How does it release from the fuel line?


VERY CAREFULLY - If you break the quick disconnects on the fuel lines it will cost you a fortune!!! 500.00 + because they have to string NEW FUEL LINES. - I have replaced the fuel filter a couple of times - I have a 2000 beetle with a 1.8 Turbo. The fuel lines are pressurized so you will need to relieve the pressure before you try and remove the filter or you will get a face full of gas. The filter comes off by pushing the fuel line toward the filter and then pushing the quick release button on the fuel line. The fuel line should then decouple - the filter lives under the car near the right rear tire (just in front) Good luck and be careful

Where is the fuel filter located on a 2002 Lincoln LS, V8 and how do you reduce the pressure on the fuel line in order to safely remove and replace fuel filter.


To relive the fuel pressure look under hood on drivers side front of engine locate the fuel line where it goes into the fuel rail,trace it back a little ways and you will see a schrader valve for checking fuel pressure. Remove the plastic cap and take something like a small screw driver and press the pin in center to release pressure.
To replace fuel filter you have to remove left front wheel and inner plastic fender panel and fuel filter is located behind this at the back area.

Locating the fuel filter


You didn't state the year or engine size,,,, On the firewall,( passenger side, back of engine compartment, it's round) on fuel injected models, relieve pressure of fuel line before beginning- gas cap off,also must release pressure on fuel injected models- some have pressure release on top of filter, others on fuel rail,this will be a bolt on top of a bolt. Hold the bottom bolt (w/ open end wrench, loosen top bolt w/ 6mm wrench. Cover with rag, so you don't have gas shooting up in your face. Carb models: have 2 filters, one inline in engine compartment, 2nd under car attached to fuel tank. Open gas cap to relieve pressure before starting removal on carb models. countrycurt0
