New fuel pump won't prime. No fuel from gas tank to engie. Lines are clear.


The pump works without priming anything. If the tank is vented, and you have fuel in the tank, and the pump is installed correctly, it should pump fuel out.
Are you sure the pump is getting power and ground ?

Where is the fuel filter located on a 2001 Mazda Protege 2.0 LX?


A 2001 Mazda Protege (actually, all models from 1999-2003 including the DX, LX, ES, Mazdaspeed, and Protege 5) does not have an inline fuel filter. The only fuel filter it has is a "strainer" or a "screen", which looks like a nylon mesh "sock". This strainer is connected to the fuel pump, located in the gas tank. Although this fuel strainer does not require periodic replacement, it is recommended that it be changed if you are replacing the fuel pump.

Car seems like it is not getting gas when accelerting


Do the least expensive things first. Check the fuel filters and change them if they are getting plugged. Ultimately it could be a weak fuel pump and needs to be changed. I have also heard of holes in the fuel tank on this age of Mazda allowing rain water to enter the fuel tank on rainy days. This would cause problems from time to time. If it is always poor on acceleration it is more likely a plugged fuel filter or a weak fuel pump that is wearing out.

Gas filter


Its located at the left rear side of the engine compartment. Looks like a metal canister with hoses attached to it.

I have a 1999 mazda protege 1.6 liter and the car was driving fine until about 4 days ago. it acts like its not getting gas especially on an inclined road. it jerks and acts like its gonna run out of gas...


My car has a similar problem, if you take it to AutoZone or Advance Auto Parts they will usually scan it for codes at no charge. My problem is a bad Map Sensor. Hope this helps.
