Question about 1998 Mercury Villager

1 Answer

How do you change the fuel filter. The vehicle stalled with plenty of gas in it. My worry is that the fuel pump is bad, but I would like to check the fuel filter first and see if it is an easy fix.

It seems that I have an issue with the van stalling when it is in the dead of summer and the air conditioning is being used. The fuel pump makes a high pitch noise. I must wait to restart the engine after a long time of allowing things to cool down. This has only happened 4 times in 3 years and again, it's always in the summer months. Does anyone have any ideas?

2000 gmc Sierra starts but stalls


Check the fuel pressure while its running. It sounds like the fuel filter is stopping up. Fuel filter should be changed every 50 thousand miles or so. If the filter is bad it won't be long until the fuel pump has to be replaced (located inside the fuel tank)! It's a lot easier to replace the filter before the pump is damaged!

2002 Free Lander stalls out after starting.


It sounds like you have water in your tank and/or bad gas. There are a few Chemicals that can help to remove it.... Dry Heet is one of them, but there are others. I would try to drain as much as you can first, as it seems to be floating on top of the gas. Then add the fuel cleaner. This should help. I would also replace the fuel filter if you cannot clean it out.

Switch gas Stations....
Thank you for contacting Fixya. Does this help? Let us know.

My 1995 dodge ram 1500 will bottom out going up hills. When you accelerate at about 2.5 rpms it drops out and won't gain any power


Your fuel pump is not being supplied with adequate fuel pressure to deliver to your engine on an incline because of an obstruction in the fuel tank that changes from level to inclined. I have seen this on many vehicles over 15 years old mostly from rust, debris, and just plai bad gas. Have the fuel tank removed, cleaned and a new "Fuel Sock" (a sort of filter device made of a wire mesh) installed and the fuel lines blown out from front to rear. This should give you plenty of get up and go no matter what the angle your vehicle is in.

Vehicle starts then stalls out like it is out of gas then will not start. let sit for awhile then starts and runs for a minute or so then stalls out again.


Sounds as if your fuel pump is not operating correctly are has gone on the fritz. Of course it also could be your fuel line filter has been clogged up to the point of not letting the fuel flow. I changed two fuel pumps in a ford until I checked the fuel line filter and found it clogged. What it would do was to start and run at low speeds for a few miles, but when I accelerated it would force the gunk in the fuel line filter up to the end and block the gas flow. When I would let it sit for about ten minutes, gravity took over and settled the gunk in the lower part of the filter and fuel would flow as long as the fuel pressure was low.

Check the fuel filter first, then the fuel pump. I think that all of the fuel pumps are now in the gas tank and is a dickens to replace.
