It's not too difficult. A tubing cutter and a tubing bender will be helpful. A parts store should have the proper lines and fittings to do the job. A pair of safety googles will help too.

Cranks,idles but when you give it gas it wants to die.


You are either experiencing an ignition issue or a fuel delivery issue.
Preliminarily, if the CHECK ENGINE light is on, use an ODB reader to readout all stored codes, and use them as a guide to determine if there are any sensor faults or other issues that need to be addressed. Also, check for signs of vacuum leaks from broken or loose vacuum lines, both under the hood and under the dash (listen for an air escaping sound under the dash while the engine is idling, and find the leaks that way).
Then, start with diagnosing for a fuel delivery issue. Go ahead and replace the fuel filter (it's likely due, since the car is over 11 years old anyway), and notice if there is rust in the fuel filter. If there is significant rust or something that looks like gelatine, replace all fuel in the vehicle. That may solve your issue. If the issue still exists, check for proper pressure at the fuel rail. If the pressure is low, replace the fuel pressure regulator. If the pressure is still low, or if the fuel pump has been making more noise than usual, replace the fuel pump and be sure to replace the intake strainer.
Next, if the issue still exists, perform a major tune-up, making sure to replace the plug wires. If spark is weak, replace the coil pack(s). If new codes emerge during the process, address those. If all else fails, suspect a defective ECU (expensive but not awful).

If you got as lot of rust from the fuel. you may have to replace the filter again. or clean out all the fuel lines and replace the injectors. May even have to replace the fuel tank.

Car sputters/stalls only after 20-30 miles of use, and will work again if it rest for a few hours.


Pull the fuel pick line from the tank ( normally fuel gauge sender unit) and check for a small crack or rusted line that is allowing the pump to suck in air. Check that all hoses are in good condition and not perished (cracked) before then pump

96 Mercury Villager gas leak from front drviers side


A somewhat common problem on Nissan cars and imports that use clamps for fuel lines. Altho not usually that major.
Often times the rubber fuel hoses leak in very cold weather. The fuel lines going to the tank are on the driver side. So is the fuel filter.
I have to tighten up a clamp every winter on my 98 Villager when the temp drops below 30 degrees.
If the leak is major enough to leave a puddle on the ground you should have no problem finding it.

could be low fuel pressure, a clogged fuel filter will give you a mild misfire sometimes. the alcohol in gas now makes moisture form inside your gas tank and rust if it's a steel tank but if not it will still make your fuel filter rust internally, always try the fuel filter first. could be a failing coil pack but usually you get a specific cyl. # misfire. could be a vacuum leak but but if the lower intake gasket was just replaced you should have noticed any loose vacuum lines.

probally rust in the tank that's clogged the pickup filter in the tank or the fuel filter. or if you're in a cold climate, gas could be frozen too.

Sounds like you are rusted out. Even the factory parts are not that expensive and they are properly bent. Check the dealer.
If substituting aftermarket piping you want to either replace the bad section with a splice or the whole piece. Notice the end connections and where you will attach the replacements.
Notice the routing of the gas line away from hot exhaust parts and areas a lift jack will crush your line. Notice what moves close to the fuel line to allow for travel.

You may be able to splice a piece of rubber fuel line into a metal line with a few clamps.

I have seen everything you will need at Autozone and Oreillys and similar stores with the exception of Factory parts.

Car sat for a year - now the fuel pump won't work


The fuel pump is in the fuel tank. You could try rapping on the tank first. As far as the fuel filter goes.look on the passenger side below the rear door it is located there it has two clips holding the fuel lines on pry them back with a flat tip screw driver put new filter on and replace the clips should take all of 10 minutes

1986 Maserati Spyder problems


I must say that this car was very badly neglected by its previous owner(s).The problems i ha with it - fan relay failed, causing the motor to overheat, which warped the heads, resulting in my having to rebuild the engine. Alternator, horn, and front shocks have had to be replaced. Passenger door is starting to show significant rust. The windshield needs to be replaced because the laminate is spliting. Fuel filters were full of rust.
