SOURCE: depressurizing fuel system?

bleed the pressure off (cold engine!) at the fuel press test port on the fuel supply rail to the injectors on the top of engine, it looks like a metal tire valve with a plastict cap on it.

SOURCE: 99 Crown Victoria fuel pump replacement

Use lots of wd40 on tank strap bolts. If they bigin to bind tighten them up and losen again to get rust out of threads. If you remove the straps, why not remove the fill neck and lower tank? Much easier to work that way!!!

How do i go about dropping the gas tank to change the fuel filter on my cadillac brougham?


The fuel filter is located on the drivers side of the car about halfway between the front and back wheel. Look just underneath the doors and follow the fuel line until you run into the filter.

You just need a couple of crescent wrenches to remove it. While you have the fuel filter off, turn the ignition on but dont crank the car then have a look to see if any fuel sprayed out.
Put a rubber hose over the end going into some kind of container if you want to be neat about it. Just to be sure the fuel pump is working.

I need the location on where the fuel filter is located on a 1998 dodge caravan sport 3.3L flex fuel.


I believe the fuel filter is under the vehicle and over the fuel tank. You'll have to drop the tank to access the filter. Loosen the nut on both ends of the filter and gently seperate. Replace new filter and retighten the nuts. Secure the tank back.

Put a jack (for a flat tire) under the fuel tank, so you could control how far it dropped. Then remove the two screws that hold the fuel tank straps. The screws come out, the fuel tank is loose, lower the tank by lowering the jack. Now it is easy to reach the filter. One screw holds it in place. Unscrew it, it comes right out. The tricky part is figuring out how to unplug the fuel lines. Look at the replacement filter, note how the plastic piece inside each fuel line has to be squeezed to remove it. You need to squeeze the old ones the same way to release them. It isn't easy. Squeeze the plastic piece that is holding the hose in place until you can work it out. A few drops of gas will dribble out. The gas is NOT pressurized. Unsnap the old hoses, snap in the new ones (much easier). Screw the new filter into place. Jack the fuel tank back into place. Screw the straps back on. Clip the ground strap in place where the old one was. You're done.

Gas is shooting from inside of gas tank over muffler, when you try and start dodge caravan


Sounds like one of the lines from the fuel pump is leaking. They come attached to the fuel filter. Replace the fuel filter.

Change fuel filter in a 2006 Chevrolet Uplander


prev.gif next.gif Fuel Filter The fuel filter is part of the fuel tank module. (in the fuel tank)

It's kind of difficult to drop a fuel tank and replace the fuel tank module due to the weight and danger of gasoline catching fire or exploding.

Were is the fuel pump on a 99 jeep grand cherokee, and is it hard to replace?


You will not like my answer.

The fuel pump is inside the gas tank.

You will need to drain the tank and drop the tank to gain access to the fuel pump via the top of the gas tank.

Mark sure your new fuel pump has a new screen/sock filter.

Change filter filter at the same time!

Replacing fuel filter


Unfortunatly most dakotas have an inline fuel filter, its located in the gas tank because there not supposed to need regular maintenance or changing. Basically you have to drop your gas tank to get the fuel filter out.
