Fuel filter is under vehicle, passenger side, below seating area, front of fuel tank, mounted on frame in fuel line.

However it seems you don't have fuel delivery - which indicates bad fuel pump or fuel pump relay.

Along frame.ahead of fuel tank.. if its a vortec V6 it needs 58-62 PSI of fuel pressre, most likely the fuel pump is bad.

My 02 rendezvous wouldnt start, it would turn over but there was no fire, I changed the fuel filter, still no start, changed the fuel pump that I was told was bad still wont start, fuses have been checked....


Are you getting spark High voltage through the ignition system? how long since it has not run? Did you have the error codes read
Are you Sure the Fuel pump is working? If working you should hear it make some sound when you turn the key on, but before you turn to start. If it doesn't make sound it probably is not gettind power. There is a device called Fuel pump relay that in many other cars gives a problem. I would try to bypass it temporarily to see if you get the new fuel pump to respond. If it does, most likely that is the problem. If it does not respond, then double check your connections.

i had the exact same thing happen to me with my first car, a 1966 mercury comet.

i replaced the fuel pump, rebuilt the carburetor (twice), and finally rebuilt the entire engine! still, every time afterwards, the car ran ok, then would cut off again!

it turned to be just a $2 clogged fuel filter. i' suspect the same with your vehicle. after removing the filter, simply blow through it. any resistance, means it needs replacing.

Modern fuel injected vehicles will only run the pump for a couple of seconds to pressurize the fuel system at stat-up. The pump won't run after that until the engine is running or you are actively engaging the starter. The fuel pump and relay are doing exactly what they are supposed to do. Now, that doesn't mean the pump is building pressure like it should but the pump running for a second then shutting off after you first turn on the key is normal operation. You may have entered it, but I can see no information about what vehicle you are working on other than it is a truck. More information about the vehicle would help. In the mean time, I feel a compression check is an order and you should take a look at the oil to make sure there isn't any water mixed in. Some history would help as well, like if you have done any type of service in the last month, when the basic maintainence was done, how many miles are on it, etc.

How to change fuel filter on 2005 nissan armada


I would start by pulling the fuel pump fuse and starting the vehicle. This will get rid of the pressure on the fuel line. Once the vehicle will not start crank it over for about 10-15 seconds. Then the fuel filter is located under the brake booster on the drivers side. It has two hose clamps that hold it on. Remove the two hose clamps and replace the filter. Then install the fuel pump fuse. Turn the key to the on position and wait till you hear the fuel pump shut off. Turn the key off and repeat this step 3 times to build fuel pressure. Then you should be ready to go!

1998 VW cabrio doesn't start. acts like it is not getting gas.


I wouldnt recommend someone messing with fuel lines, especially on a 2.0L 8v mk3 VW, without knowing exactly what theyre doing.

Make sure it has at least 1/3 tank of fuel. When you turn the key to the acc position, do you her a soft whirring for 1 to 3 seconds?

If so, that is your fuel pump pre loading your injectors. If you do no hear it, than it is possible its your fuel pump.

With someone helping, turn the ignition over, and have someone lightly tap the fuel pump under neath the car. It is located by the rear passenger wheel.

If you cant hear the fuel pump when key is first put in the ACC position, but the car stutters and turns over while the pump is being tapped, its your pump.

Your best bet would be to take it to a certified vw mechanic, and have them do an inspection with a tuneup including a new fuel filter

Ran out of gas. vehicle started, ran, drove home, turned off, would not restart. Is there a ran out of fuel procedure/fuel pump reset. Does sound like fuel pump is working. Dirty/clogged fuel filter


No, there isn't a reset. When you run out of fuel, after refilling turn your key on without starting the vehicle. You should hear the fuel pump working for a couple seconds. After the pump stops then try to start the vehicle. Because you could hear the fuel pump working, it is possible that your fuel filter is dirty/clogged. I hope this helps.

Your fuel pump is in the gas tank. Before going there check the relay and all attending fuses as well as the fuel filter (on top of pump/sending unit)
If you can't hear the pump running when you first turn the key on, likely it is electrical. If you can, then could be the filter. There are other reasons for your problem but start with the easier common stuff.

Ran out of gas wont start now


if its petrol engine bang bottom of fuel tank while some one else cranks vehicle over if it starts good just pump jammed if it dont buzz to life and you cant hear fuel pump buzzing ceck for power to it if thats there replace pump. running out of fuel kills electric fuel pumps internally in petrol tanks.

if its diesel you must bleed fuel system taking extreme care if you un do lines some very high pressure

Fuel issues


should hear a whirring humming sound from the fuel tank (if that is where the pump is located) just turn on the key and take off the gas cap you should hear it.
Also did you drain the fuel from the tank when you had it down ? after that many years the fuel would be "gummed" up.
