First off you MUST buy the tool to do this, I bought mine at auto zone and it works great, the fuel lines are a snap on type and the ONLY way to release them is by using this tool, Be careful, the fuel will spray out when you release the line do not be smoking when you do this

How to reinstall the fuel injection pump on toyota 4.2 l turbo diesel(1 hd-fte)engine


Actually this is a relativly simple fix, it is located near the diesel filter {R/H of engine} and is merely removing the feed lines and plugs, replacing the gaskets and pump, you will have to prime the unit before attempting to drive, be generous with the diesel when priming, as running them dry can be costly. replace the filter while your at it and remember to fill the chamber with fresh fuel before sealing it closed. Good luck, hope it helps.

My 450 ford moter home turns over but will not start I suspect feul pump


Hello mfsbrown: My name is Roger and I will help. First thing to check is to make sure the fuel filter dirty. Next you should check the fuel pressure. This will require a fuel pressure tester. You did not say if you have a gas or diesel engine. So I will furnish both test pressures. For a V-10 gas engine. (KOEO) Key On Engine Off 35 to 45 psi. (KOER) Key on engine running 28-45 ps. IF your engine is a diesel then the pressures are (koeo) 30 psi. min. (koer) 30-80 psi. If the fuel pump is your problem. Make sure to replace the fuel filter. A dirty fuel filter will cause damage to the fuel pump. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. This way I know it was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Where and how to change fuel filter on 1996 Ford F350 7.3 turbo disel truck? Is there more than one fuel filter?


Please don't forget to rate!!!!

Diesel Engines The 6.9L and 7.3L diesel engines use a one-piece spin-on fuel filter. Do not add fuel to the new fuel filter. Allow the engine to draw fuel through the filter.
  1. Remove the spin-on filter by unscrewing it counterclockwise with your hands or a strap wrench.
  2. Clean the filter mounting surface.
  3. Coat the gasket or the replacement filter with clean diesel fuel. This helps ensure a good seal.
  4. Tighten the filter by hand until the gasket touches the filter mounting surface.
  5. Tighten the filter an additional 1⁄2 turn. NOTE: After changing the fuel filter, the engine will purge the trapped air as it runs. The engine may run roughly and smoke excessively until the air is cleared from the system.
