Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

Fuel line or fuel filter location. The jeep wants to cut off and does not want to start unless I put the gas to the floor.

    Thanks for responding. The air cleaner is new and the air way is clear. I just replaced the radiator, water pump, and hoses. The temperature gauge in the dash does not work now as well as the cutting off problem. The weird thing is if I let it sit for several hours it starts right up without putting your foot on the gas pedal, but when it has run for a while and cut it off and try to restart it won't turn over.

Your problem may be the reverse of what you are thinking...Putting it on the floor should add more air and lean it out. You may have a leaking injector. Before cold starting spray some carb cleaner into the throttle body. If it starts right up, then look at fuel pump or filter. If it takes longer to start, then look at injectors and map sensor. Air cleaner element is clean, correct?

    Temp sending unit may have become unplugged. the computer sees the engine temp from the sending unit and changes modes accordingly. Not "knowing" the engine temperature can cause fuel problems as temp is factored into control adjustments. If it's plugged in then check it with an ohmeter and if out of range, replace it. If good, check wiring.

Where is the fuel filter on a 2006 liberty 3.7L located?


The Liberty doesn't have an in-line fuel filter, it is part of the fuel pressure regulator on the top of the fuel tank and is not serviced unless the fuel press regulator is defective and being replaced.

Are you located where it is below freezing? May just have a frozen gas line. If not I would suggest a fuel pump of fuel filter.

Does a 1991 chevy s-10 blazer have inline fuel pump?


  1. Place wheel chocks behind the passenger side wheels, and lift the driver side of the Blazer with a floor jack. Place jack stands under the frame, and lower the vehicle onto the jack stands. Supporting the truck with the jack stands in this manner prevents injuries that occur if the floor jack fails.
  2. 2 Remove the fuel filler cap, and turn the ignition key to the off position. This relieves some of the fuel pressure on the system, and prevents the fuel pump from starting when the filter is removed.
  3. 3 Locate the fuel filter on the driver side frame rail, just behind the front door. The filter is a cylindrical shaped part, about six inches long, that's in the fuel line on the inside of the frame rail.
  4. 4 Place a drain pan under the filter to catch any fuel that spills. Loosen the filter fittings by using a 21mm wrench to hold the filter while turning the flare-type nut on the line with a 16mm wrench. Remove both sides of the fuel line from the filter and drain it into the drain pan.
  5. 5 Check the rubber O-rings located on the fuel line ends for tears and nicks. Replace any O-ring seal that shows damage. These seals are available at your local auto parts store.
  6. 6 Insert the fuel lines into the ends of the new filter, and thread the flare-nuts into the filter by hand. Be careful not to cross-thread them and cause the need for replacement fuel lines. Tighten both lines with the 21mm and 16mm wrenches.
  7. 7 Raise the truck off the jack stands with the floor jack, and remove the stands from under the vehicle. Lower the Blazer to the ground. Reinstall the fuel filler cap.
  8. 8 Turn the ignition key to the "Run" position--and then back to the off position--three times to prime the new filter. Each time the key is turned to the "Run" position, the on-board computer turns the fuel pump on and opens the injectors to add fuel for starting. Start the engine and check for fuel leaks.

This has an electric fuel pump located in the gas tank.

To replace or check it you do one of 2 things. You can drop the tank or cut a hole in the cargo area to gain access as they are on the top of the tank.I would not suggest cutting hole

How to replace fuel filter on 1995 jeep cherokee sport?


Hi,

it IS on the inside of the drivers side rear frame. In between the back wheels and the gas tank. You have to the pressurize your fuel system first unless you want gas every where. Take your fuel pump relay start the jeep until the fuel in the lines get used up. then put your relay back after you disconnect the battery, than take the filter off, put the new one on, and then hook your battery up and start the jeep. it will run odd for a minuet but after it builds the fuel pressure up it will be smooth again.

Good luck.

Oh and don't smoke while your doing this!! :

1987 jeep wrangle will not start or run


Uncouple the fuel line coming from the pump at the carburetor, place a clean can under the line, and have someone operate the starter--you should have fuel shoot from the line in spurts as the engine turns. If it does, then the entry port on the carburetor is plugged. Remove the float assembly and pull out the float needle valve. Hook the fuel line back to the carburetor and try the starter again, there should be fuel pumping into the float bowl. If not, check to see if there is a filter on the fuel inlet path that may be plugged. If no filter, remove the float needle seat to see if something is blocking the fuel passage. If all else fails, use compressed air to blow backwards through the needle seat (remove the fuel line again). Hope some of this helps!

Did an oil change, filled gas tank, put in GUMOUT, 1999 Jeep GC


If you put a fuel cleaner additive in the tank I would change the fuel filter. I believe on this model it is located in the frame just ahead of the fuel tank on the drivers side. Any foreign material cut loose from inside the tank from the cleaner often clogs the filter.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 1984 cheokee jeep


Carbureted? just follow the fuel line back from the carb to the pump. It's in that line. If injected, it's on the chassis on the inside, near the l/r wheel.Filter may help, but you may have dirt in the power valve and needle/seat in the carb. When was it last tuned up?
