Is this a diesel? if so you have got air in the system there is a bleeding system you should follow after filter change which normally involves switching ignition on/off 6or 8 times with few secs in between with ign on to bleed air from system if it got a electric fuel delivery!. or if its mechanical a vacuum prime pump is needed which may be a dealer bit of kit which ever it is dont try and start until the air has been removed. you must not get air in to tha high pressur side. i suspect @2008 it will be common rail system and can cause major probs if you get air in the high pressure side not easy to advise you dont say what engine you have. if its petrol then changing the fuel filter should not cause a prob if fitted correctly,if its common rail diesel and you have got air in the high pressure side you have to slacken the high pressure pipes and keep cranking the engine to exclude the air after 1st bleeding the low pressue side of the system then retighten the pipes. but any high pressure pipes loosened should be renewed they are normally one use only and could leak if not good luck

Wont start


the fuel lines may be leaking back into the gastank try to turn the key to the on but dont start the car. leave in the on position for 5-7 seconds do this a few times and then try to crank it. if it cranks you may have a bad fuel pump and or clogged fuel filter. change fuel filter first because its the cheapest. hope this helps.

Have 2002 mits lancer, changed fuel pump only getting about 10 psi at fuel rail, cant find filter, could pump I bought from Napa be bad or is there a filter in tank unit


Many fuel problems are cause by a fuel pressure regulator. it is recommended that you change the regulator with the pump. It is also recommended that you use the original Mitsubishi pump(should be about the same price) so that the pump pressure is also correct. The fuel filter is at the intake of the fuel pump so only filtered gas enters the pump.

How do I prime the fuel system after changing the fuel filter on a 2.5TD common rail 2008 pj ford ranger??


Hi,

Just pump up the system with the pump on top of the fuel filter then when it is hard to pump then just start it up.

If it don't start just keep winding it over until it fires up.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

first thing to do is remove spark plugs and if they smell really fuely you will need to change them if that doesnt help you will need to get the microtech tuned for a good coldstart , this depends on if its running stand alone or as a piggy back
cheers.
please leave feedback.
