The fuel filter on a Ford Focus is located under the car in a depression in front of the right rear tire and about two feet in from the side. It is a ridiculous place to put it and will require you to raise the vehicle and have rubber arms and tools to get to the bolts that hold it onto the body

Is there a reset button on a 1999 isuzu trooper 4x4 it won't start acting as if it's out of gas but isn't already replaced fuel pump 2 mths ago

which engine? i cant guess engines, not today, too early.
what will be, will be..... fate always wins... and entropy.
so that is just 2 simple tests.
12vdc (11v cranking) to the pump , across both its 2 pins?
yes, /no of no work to ECU relay (fuel pump relay)
if the relay shows 12vdc cranking and pump
then we check fuel pressure, next.
but that is all wrong..... what do we really do, as all EFI systems can cut fuel for many reasons, besides that pump.
ill guess its a gasoline engine, and still stock end to end. (blind too)
1: head lights glow bright , key off. and cranks fast on demand.
2: key on, the CEL glows, in cluster, it must or ECU lost power.
3: fuses to ECU and pump good...???? all fuses good.
4: i connect scan tool (any tool works in usa, here) at the 16pin DLC port seen near knees of driver. i get comms now. if not say so.... if no comms now, the ecu is dead.
5: I crank for 5seconds release key and if scans show DTC errors of
P03xx codes, now you know why injection is halted, by design.
all cars do that, if up to 3 things spark wise are bad, the ECU cuts all injectors dead. (prevents crash and burn, as seen on TV by law)
so if all that is OK,?
6:then i look and see if injector 1 passes my NOID light test.
yes, then it is injecting. ECU is....injecting. ok. (did its job)
7: i then check for 12vdc (11v cranking) to the pump, if not?, I trace that wire for its obvious failure or the relay bad.
if you have 12vdc to pump cranking (good)
i check fuel pressure next. using a tool called a fuel pressure gauge that costs $20 (ask)

one could skip to test 6 first. (6 bad, start back at #1)

next time post engine in car.
cylinder count at least and displacement.
the line up, last 2 are diesel...
3.2 L 6VD1 SOHC V6
3.2 L 6VD1 DOHC V6 twin cam.
3.5 L 6VE1 DOHC V6
3.0 L 4JX1 TD I4
3.1 L 4JG2 TD I4

i answered for USA car, and gasoline engine..

My car stopt at the midle of the road, The first help service told it would be probable the fuel pump that was failing. My own garage said indeed that the fuel pump has to be replaced. How do I know they...

First look under the dash for a Inertia switch reset button. If you have the steering wheel on the same side as USA vehicles the switch is suppose to have an access hole on the passengers kickpad. Just put your finger through this access and press a button to reset it. Try to start the car.

This is a safety feature for impacts and sometimes a rough bump or slamming door will disengage it. It is not a terribly complicated device. Inside it is just a magnet that bridges 2 contact points and the reset is just picking the internal magnet up and making contact again.

You should have someone check the fuelpump relay in the Powerbox. You may also have a fuse burned out. The job of changing the fuelpump and dropping the tank can be done by a Handy person. Just make sure that if there is more than 1 pump, you get both so the job can be done. I would think it would take 3 hours or less to do.

Call around and price the job and see what others in your Region pay. I hope my solution is helpful to you.

When I start my 1999 GMC JIMMY sometimes it starts right up. Sometimes its as if it does not get enough fuel then it starts. I have been told it could be the fuel pump or the fuel injection regulator....

i been having fuel injection troubles myself and seems to me your problem may be your fuel injection pressure regulator,before starting when you turn the key so your dash lights show up and at that same time you should also hear your fuel pump motor spinning which means that its working and sending fuel through so you may have a fault with your regulator,,hope that helps,goodluck.
