Whats a common sign of fuel pump/fuel filter failure?


Common signs of a weak pump would be slow acceleration, hard starting, dying at stop lights,...Don't be so quick to say your pump is bad, it could be the FPR, it could be a vacuum leak, it could be bad igniters, loose electrical connections. Plug an OBD II reader into the car and get the diagnostic error codes in the computer.

How do i change a 2004 Lincoln LS fuel pump?


Hi. here's how to change the fuel pump. The actual electric fuel pump is in the tank on the right side. The tank is directly below the rear seat. If you remove the seat bottom you will find a 6 inch or so cover. Under the cover there is a plastic, threaded collar that locks the fuel pump into the tank. The driver's side also has a pump, but it works only my venturi effect from the electric pump on the other side. This pump is used to equalize the fuel level from left to right. The drive shaft tunnel prevents all but the very top of the tank from communicating left to right.

    Fig. Fuel filter mounting location and component identification
The fuel strainer attaches to the lower end of the fuel pump module. The fuel strainer is made of woven plastic. The functions of the fuel strainer are to filter contaminants and to wick fuel. The fuel strainer normally requires no maintenance. Fuel stoppage at this point indicates that the fuel tank contains an abnormal amount of sediment or contamination.

Hope help with this (remember rated and comment this help)..

REPLACEMENT of a fuel filter on a 1997


cd7cd12.gif
The fuel filter (1) is mounted next to the fuel pump module (2), on top of the fuel tank (3)


The fuel delivery system uses quick-connect fittings. The fuel filter mounts to the top of the fuel tank.
  1. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Place a drain pan underneath the fuel filter to catch any spilling fuel that will result from disconnecting the fuel lines.
It may be necessary to support the weight of the fuel tank with a block of wood and a floor jack. Once this is accomplished, loosen, but do not remove, the fuel tank strap bolts. Allow the fuel tank to lower just enough to access the fuel line fittings at the fuel pump module.

Disengage the fuel line quick-connect fittings from the fuel pump module

02627d0.gif
Be sure to place a drain pan underneath the filter line fittings to catch all fuel spillage

Locate the fuel filter in its mounting on top of the fuel tank. Detach the quick-connect fittings from the chassis fuel supply tube and fuel pump module by squeezing the quick-connect fitting retainer tabs together and pulling the fitting assembly away from the fuel line nipple. The retainer will remain on the fuel tube.

... then remove the fuel filter from the top of the fuel tank

  1. Remove the fuel filter mounting bolt and remove the fuel filter from the fuel tank.
To install:
  1. Install the fuel filter on the top of the fuel tank and tighten the mounting bolt.
  2. The fuel supply tube (to chassis fuel line), return tube (to pump module) and fuel supply (to fuel filter) tube are permanently attached to the fuel filter. The quick-connect fitting ends of the fuel supply and return tubes are of different sizes.
  3. Apply a light coating of 30W engine oil to the nipples of the fuel filter.
  4. Push the quick-connect fitting over the fuel line until the retainer seats and clicks into place. Be sure the retainer tabs have locked into the case of the fitting.
  5. If necessary, raise the fuel tank and tighten the fuel tank strap bolts.
  6. Lower the vehicle. Start the engine and check for leaks.

My sons 1998 GMC Jimmy was leaking gas all over the garage floor. Just had the fuel pump replaced.


Either the fuel tank was punctured or a fuel line is not properly connected. They are quick connect fittings, an O-ring may have been damaged.
