How to fix the timing on a ford f250 6.9 ltr diesel

This is a technique called spill timing line up the timing marks
remove the pipe to the injector on #1 Cylinder loosen the mounting / adjustment bots on the pump attach a spill cut off pipe (looks like a '?") use the lift pump to supply low pressure fuel. While pumping the lift pump turn the injector pump in the direction of rotation until fuel flows freely then turn the injector pump slowly and gradually against the direction of rotation till fuel stops. lock the pump in this position. this is correct timing

How do I release pressure from fuel line In an 04 XG350 so I can change fuel filter

I have no idea what a XG350 is, but generally if there is a test port valve on the fuel rail, put catch can and rag around valve and depress the center pin. If no test port, just slowly loosen and screw type fuel line connection while holding rag around the fitting and catch can underneath. USE ONLY FLASHLIGHT not electrical trouble light and clean up all spills immediately. You will probably spill fuel while replacing filter, so be very careful of flames, etc.

Fuel pump replacement

For the 2000 Grand Am, the fuel pump is replaced by draining the fuel tank or having it as empty as possible....then (while on jacks) lower the fuel tank. Remove the harness and the tubes to the top of the sending unit. Remove the lock collar ring that holds the pump in place (sending unit is mounted to the side of the fuel pump) and lift out the pump assembly...tilting it slightly (it has fuel in it so watch for it to spill out) and slowly so as not to damage the float internally.
Installation is in reverse. Sounds easy but there is more to it because of the lack of space between the tank and the underside of the car...trying to disconnect these items.

What is the best way to drain my fuel tank on a 1967 karmann ghia see i can replace the fuel tank tube filter

I drained mine by unbolting the entire tank (only 4 bolts on top) taking it out and inverting it for drainage.
BUT, here are two shortcuts that I realized later:
a ) You can get get under the front hood beneath the car (not easy to reach) and unhook the main fuel line from tank to engine.
b) The easiest way is just unhook the fuel supply line from tank to the carb and drain it slowly and best if parked at inclined level for better drainage down the hill. Collect Fuel in a fuel container.

Fueling causes gas to back-up

Turn the handle 1 way or the other to follow the path of the fill spout as it is at an extreme angle beyond the filler nozzle portion.

Petrol (gas) inlet is very slow it seem like an airlock have somebody else had a simmilar problem

Yes it's a common problem. You have two options: 1. fill the tank very slowly or; 2. (more tricky) put a short length of 3/8 fuel resistant PVC tubing down the filler neck before you fill up. make sure it is long enough not to disappear down into the tank & short enough not to reach the fuel when the tank is full. It is a good idea to hold onto this tube with you spare hand. Let any fuel in the tube drain out before removing it though & be careful not to spill petrol on yourself. To avoid this bend the tube gently back into the mouth of the fuel filler.

How do I change the fuel filter without the gasoline spill ? where can i lock the gasoline line to replace the fuel filter? thank

turn off car, take off filler cap for gastank, you should see a fuel pressure connector on the fuel rail release the pressure there, make sure you have a rag over it so you dont get sprayed with gas. that will release the pressure you should probably get this done by a professional though

When I pump gas, it will spill out of the tank when its not full

there is a vent pipe/tube that runs along the fill pipe, this vent allows air out of the tank when u fill it, it has to be obstructed, replace it.
