1992 Honda Accord, fuel filter replacement instructions, can you send these to me, thanks


It's not the filter. But replace it anyway. I would look more toward the ignition. Crank sensor, coils, and lose of power to them. Have the codes read.

92 Honda Accord runs and starts fine I was great but when you accelerate starving for fuel has a new fuel pump new fuel filter fuel injectors don't know what the problem is help me


attach fuel pressure gauge to check fuel pressure during acceleration. fuel pressure should be the same as when vehicle is idling. if fuel pressure is good i would check ignition timing of your car. if timing is retarded it will affect acceleration and feel like its sluggish too.

I turn ignition to ready position. The fuel pump engages and prime's the line. I then start the engine. Engine starts and runs for a max of 15 seconds. As soon as the engine cuts out the fuel pump...


The crank sensor is a good candidate. Pretty common failure on jeeps.
To clarify, the fuel pump is on all time during engine cranking, and during engine running. When the engine cuts off, the pump will also be stopped. But, you will not lose pressure in the fuel lines and fuel rail immediately. The check valve in the pump is supposed to hold fuel pressure in the system for a good time-about 20 minutes. The pressure should bleed off very slowly.

Your fuel pump and fuel system is probably good, but if you really lose prime (or pressure) that quickly, then there is a problem. Best way to check is with a fuel pressure gauge after the engine cuts out. Or, if you have the test port schraeder valve on the fuel rail (looks like a tire valve), you can use a screwdriver to press the center of the valve. If gas squirts out, you do have fuel pressure, prime is not lost, fuel system is good, and you can assume problem is in the ignition circuit, not a fuel problem. Probably the crank position sensor.
Good luck, Casey.

I have a 98 ford ranger that will not start. i can spray starting fluid in it and it will run untill that is burned up and the accelartion isnt very good kinda of sluggish


Start by replacing the fuel filter as it obviously isn't getting enough fuel or air so also replace the air filter if it hasn't been replaced for some time. Another possible cause is that the fuel pump may need replaced. The pump will be inside the fuel tank.

I have a 1994 Chev. C1500 2wd P/U 5.7 liter V8. Runs fine during daytime when good weather. At night or if there is a change in the weather such as rain, the truck stalls when stopping at a stop sign or...


Test the fuel pressure. With gauge connected to the fuel rail turn key on, listen for pump, when it stops,turnthe key off and leave gauge connected for an hour. The original reading should been 50lbs., if it drops any more than a couple of pounds the pump is bad. The M.A.P. sensor sounds like it was another item in itself.

Loss of power while driving. Thought it was a vapor lock. Had this once before and the car later started. This time engine turns over but will not stay running.


Hello,

Thanks for using FixYa.

The possible cause of loss of power is:

1. Low fuel pressure (Need to check the fuel filter and fuel pump. Fuel pressure needs to be above 45psi)

2. Dirty air filter (try replacing the air filter if its dirty)

3. Clogged fuel lines (use fuel line cleaner additive)

4. Bad ignition timing (use a timing gun to make sure your engine timing is correct)

These are the most common causes of loss of power for any combustion type engine.

I hope this helps you isolate the issue. Thanks and good day.

Car gets warm and starts hesitating on acceleration


Hi,
this could be something in the fuel pump. As the cold motor draws more fuel, it may just be just ok for the engine, but after it is warm, it draws less and may "suffocate" it that way. Same goes for air filter, take a peek if it is not ready for replacement. Has this happened suddenly, or has it occurrend during a long perion of time?

Engine dies for no apparent reason after several hours running


Sonds like a sensor putting out an error code to shut it down ( like a fatal error code) Prolonged vibrations and heat can make cam sensors, maf, o2 senosr do craz ythings which will actuate a govener and stall your car...could also be you fuel pump causually telling you that "hey im bout to die".I dealership can run a stress test (if you will) to check the longivity of the pump...
Good luck hope this helps :)

Our truck died while driving down the road we replaced the fuel pump and now the truck starts and runs but its really sluggish and sputters alot


that may be caused by a plugged fuel filter or fuel line, you need too replace the filter when you replace the pump.............
