Hi Tuatahi, Begin by leaving the ignition key in the barrel, and leaving it in the off position. You will have to be very careful during the whole job as you will be working with a live electrical system. remove the steering wheel, (usually requiring a puller). Unscrew the steering column cowling and remove the halves.Next remove the stalk controls and instrument panel by removing the screws around the top of the housing. Pull it gently towards you and disconnect the plugs behind it They have shaped matched sizes and cannot be mixed up. Remove the ash tray and other lockers and remove the self tapping and machine screws which mount the dash peripheries. Remove the center consul and then the center furnishings. When disconnecting the music/ navigation system you will find that the sockets cannot be mixed with each other. The climate control is also designed in a similar manner. The single cables and micro fittings should be carefully labeled and identified on the replacement dash before fitting so that any modifications that are required can be made at the time between removal and fitting. Remove the glove locker and disconnect the air bag cable connections. Disconnect all switches and controls. The dash board will be mounted onto the vehicle superstructure by the use of ten, eleven, twelve and thirteen mm nuts and bolts, also look for any machine and self tapping screws which may be fitted. You should be able to see them with careful inspection and detective work. Once satisfied that the dash is loose gently pull it towards you. for the final removal, you will probably need to remove the front seats. Hope this helps even though it is fairly generalized. Don't forget the flash light as it can come in handy for this type of job. Let me know how you get on, I am interested? Regards John

Yes you can,

But stiill ther is a problem ,like you have to sacrifice with your dashboard's botom front side some cuts,

like when you installed your old dashboard you have to cut that part which interfier with dashboard some wiring can passed out but some fual pump cant buy passed cause if we do add some pipes for closing cicuit than its not create some pressure as car injection system needs,

so as you need some cuts from your dashboard you can & some joints you have to do but,

you can do this or can extend some pipelines for fual pumps but you will loose some power at higher RPM ,

so take easily,do with care,

THNX

1998 petrol transit starts then stop again


Sounds like a fuel starvation issue. You may want to start with something simple like changing the fuel filter, and move on from there. After replacing the fuel filter, check fuel system pressure to ensure it's in the right range (around 47 PSI for most fuel injected gasoline (petrol) engines). If the fuel pressure is low, it may be the pre-filter on the fuel pump, or the fuel pump itself.

Car cuts out


Since Fiesta diesels are a pretty new release I would take it back to the dealer under warranty, assuming it is still under warranty. It may be a blocked fuel filter, or contaminated fuel as it sounds like it is starving. Being so new I doubt that'd be the case, unless you've accidentally put petrol in it?? My daughter filled her new diesel up at the petrol bowser on the second fill and paid quite a fee to have the system drained and reprimed with new diesel fuel.

Started ran for 5 sec then stopped may be a deisel problem , checked manual said there is a cut out button only on petrol.! found one off the small return pipes came loose top of injector but seems no...


Check your manual for Bleeding the system. Sounds like you have air in the fuel lines. Look in your manual also at Changing your fuel filter. It will
explain the right way to get the air out. Did the manual say where the cut out switch was??? That would be the switch that shuts the fuel off to stop the engine.

Ford fiesta 1.4 ZTECH SI P Reg. Engine almost cuts out on only left-hand corners. At the time the fuel was on red but is now on half-fule and it's still doing it but ok on right-hand bends and straights.


Hmmmm Sounds like your fuel pump as sucked up all the **** and residue out of your petrol tank, Try;

1) Using redex
2) Buying a new fuel pump
3) Buying a new petrol tank
4) Buy a new car?!

Kidding about the last one :P let me know how you get on.

My bmw 318 ran out of petrol now it wont start i have changed fuel filter


if you can't hear the fuel pump cut in for a couple of seconds, check the fuse. Check the relay, or replace it with a known good one. See if you have power to the fuel pump. If you have power, your fuel pump is in need of replacement.
When you run an electric fuel pump out of gas, you should always cycle it about 10 times before you try to start the engine. That is, turn the key to on for a few seconds, and then off, and repeat. You need to get some fuel up to the engine.

Suspected Fuel Pump Failure


first, tap on the gas tank to see if it sounds empty, second, when you turn your key on you should hear the fuel pump turn on (faint whirring sound from gas tank) for a couple seconds.
