If i remember correctly the outer most lines from the pump should come off at the same time. The back half should do the same. They fallow the fireing order. The isolators are needed to keep vibration from rubbing the lines. Good luck.

Is it still under the warranty from the last shop ? Most shops have a standard warranty on their workmanship of 12 months or 12,000 miles. If it is within this time and miles and the problems are due to their workmanship then yes they need to step up and take care of your problem.

I have a F350 diesel non- tubo with a fuel leak in back at top. replaced o ring at back injector and replaced all hose clamps but still bad runing leak. What next?

This engine has fuel lines that run to each injector from the injector pump. On the older Fords they touch each other in places. This constant vibration from the engine has caused a pin hole in one of your fuel lines to the injector. You will need to find the bad line. Can be hard as some of these are buried and hard to see. The replacement line will need to be purchased from Ford as each fuel line has to be a certain length and they are all high pressure lines. I have seen this many times in the older Fords.

Facing front of 7.3 diesel, fuel is leaking at right front fuel injector,,,looks like the banjo fitting,,,what seals this fitting as it can be twisted by hand??

You'll need to pick up an injector install kit for around $40. There are two sizes depending on the size fuel line that runs between your injectors so don't open the bag the kit comes in, until you compare the contents of the kit with whats on your motor. The kit will have new fuel line, clamps, plastic caps and o-rings. Once you remove the fuel line from the pump and then the fuel line between injectors, you can pull the plastic caps off and then remove the old o-rings. Reverse this order to install the new kit.

Gas is leaking from my fuel rail (phlegm) on my number 5 fuel injector on my 1994 camaro

  • Park the Camaro on a flat, level surface and set the parking brake. Open the hood and secure it in place with the hood prop. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  • Open the gas tank to relieve pressure on the fuel lines.
  • Remove the sight shield from the fuel injector with a socket wrench. Loosen the screws on the hose clamps and disconnect the fuel lines connected to the injectors. Keep a rag handy to catch any fuel that leaks.
  • Disconnect the vacuum hose and ignition coil wire, then unplug the electrical connectors. Remove the fuel injector mounting bolts, undo the retaining clips and remove the fuel injectors.
  • Put a thin coat of engine oil on the new fuel injector's O-ring. Place the O-ring in position, install the new fuel injectors and secure the retaining clips. Install the mounting bolts with a torque wrench set at seven pounds.
  • Plug the electrical connectors back into the fuel injectors. Reconnect the vacuum hose and ignition coil wire. Connect the fuel lines and tighten the hose clamps with a screwdriver to secure them in place. Bolt the sight shield in place with a socket wrench.
  • Place the gas cap back on. Reconnect the negative battery cable

    My 1993 nissan terrano,4x4 turbo diesel,isnt bringing fuel up to the injectors after i replaced the diesel filter.does anybody have a solution for this please

    Did you follow these procedures?

    1. Release the fuel pressure from the fuel line as follows:
      1. Remove the fuel pump fuse at the fuse box.
      2. Start the engine.
      3. After the engine stalls, crank the engine two or three times to make sure that the fuel pressure is released.
      4. Turn the ignition switch OFF and reinstall the fuel pump fuse.
    2. Loosen the hose clamps at the fuel inlet and outlet lines. Wrap a shop towel or absorbent rag around the filter, then slide each line off the filter nipples.
    3. Remove the fuel filter and old hose clamps.

    To install:

    1. Place new hose clamps on the fuel inlet and outlet lines.
    2. Connect the fuel filter, being careful to observe the correct direction of flow, then tighten the hose clamps.
    3. Start the engine and check for fuel leaks.

    Always use a high pressure-type fuel filter assembly. Do not use a synthetic resinous fuel filter

    How do you replace the fuel pump on a 1993 hondalx

    If your engine has a carbuerator, then these are the steps:

    Externally Mounted Fuel Pump
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Remove the gas filler cap to relieve any excess pressure in the system.
    3. Loosen the lug nuts of the left rear wheel.
    4. Elevate the rear of the car and support it safely on properly placed stands. Remove the left rear wheel.
    5. Use a pair of suitable fuel line clamps to pinch shut the fuel hoses leading to and from the pump.


    1. Disconnect the positive lead wire and ground wire from the pump.
    2. Remove the fuel pump retaining bolts, taking care not to lose the spacers and bolt collars.
    3. Remove the fuel pump and its protective cover as a unit.
    The pump cannot be disassembled and must be replaced if defective.
    To install:
    1. Install the fuel pump and cover. Make certain the mounting collars and insulators are in the proper location. Tighten the mounting bolts to 7 ft. lbs. (10 Nm).
    2. Engage the wiring to the fuel pump.
    3. Connect the fuel hoses, making certain the lines are correctly placed and the clamps are secure. When in doubt, use new clamps; they are cheap insurance against leaks. Remove the fuel line clamps.
    4. Install the left rear wheel. Lower the car to the ground.
    5. Install the fuel filler cap. Connect the negative battery cable.
    6. Turn the ignition ON for 3 seconds, listening for the fuel pump operation. Switch the ignition OFF, then ON again. This will build pressure within the fuel lines.
    7. Start the engine. It may crank for several seconds until the lines are completely filled.

    My truck runs great but sometimes it just shuts off and has a rough start up then runs fine doesn't over heat battery hair over 14 new plugs when bought oil pressure hair under 40 First dodge i have ever...

    Try replacing your fuel shutoff solenoid. This is an electronic device in the injector pump that is responsible for cutting fuel when you turn the key off. Otherwise, the engine would never shut off. If this malfunctions it can cause issues like what you describe. It can also fail in the opposite position, making it impossible to shut the engine off short of cutting the fuel lines. You may consider calling a local diesel shop and ask them if that is something they have in stock and if you can replace it with simple tools. I have never touched a cummins, but I know they use Bosch pumps and Bosch pumps on VW use these solenoids.

    Next thing to check... there are small steel fuel lines connecting each injector to each other. I think those seal with a copper washer gasket. Make sure those are tight and not leaking. If air is introduced into the system it can cause the engine to stall or run rough. Make sure all other fuel lines are in great shape and tighten down all the clamps. Good luck.

    Basic service

    Here are detailed instructions on the location, removal, and re-installation of your fuel filter. Hope it helps and have a great day!

    Carbureted Engines
    These vehicles use two replaceable fuel filters. A small one is in the fuel line under the hood; a larger one is located at the rear, just inboard of the left rear wheel.
    Whenever the filter(s) are replaced, take great care to avoid the entry of dirt into the lines. Also, pay attention to the correct installation position. It is possible to install the filter backwards.
    See Figure 2
    1. If applicable, disengage the filter or hose from its retaining clip.
    2. Using two fuel line clamps, pinch off both fuel lines. Take care not to crush the lines; just clamp them shut.
    If the fuel hoses are hard or cracked, it is necessary to replace them.
    0900c1528005f267.jpgFig. 2: Front fuel filter used on carbureted engines
    1. Loosen the fuel line clamps and slide them back.
    2. Using a twisting motion, remove the fuel lines from the filter.
    3. To install, use a new fuel filter and reverse the removal procedures. Start the engine and check for leaks. Correct any leaks immediately.
    See Figures 3, 4, 5 and 6
    1. Raise and safely support the rear of the vehicle. Remove the left rear wheel.
    2. Remove the bolts securing the filter and its basket to the fuel tank.

    3. Install the left rear wheel. Lower the car to the ground.
    4. Start the engine and check for leaks. Correct any leaks immediately.
    Fuel Injected Engines
    See Figures 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12
    The canister fuel filter is located in the engine compartment. When buying the new filter, also buy new washers for the banjo bolts and the service bolt. Failure to replace these washers invites high-pressure fuel leaks. Replacing the washers is required, not recommended.
    1. Disconnect the negative battery terminal.
    2. The fuel system is under pressure. Release pressure slowly and contain spillage. Observe "no smoking/no open flame" precautions. Have a Class B-C (dry powder) fire extinguisher within arm's reach at all times.
    3. Disconnect the banjo bolts and/or threaded fuel line fitting from the fuel filter. Use of a flare nut or line wrench is recommended for disconnecting and attaching this fitting.

    1. Loosen the fuel filter clamp bolt, then remove the filter.
    To install:
    1. Install the new filter and secure the clamp bolt.
    2. The upper and lower washers on each banjo bolt and the washer on the service bolt MUST be replaced whenever the bolts are loosened. Install the washers and banjo bolts. Tighten the banjo bolts to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm) on all models except 1992-95 Preludes. On these models, tighten the bolt to 20 ft. lbs. (28 Nm). If applicable, tighten the threaded fuel line fitting to 27 ft. lbs. (37 Nm).
