You should be able to run the cheapest, low octane you can get, including e15, or more if you want. The only thing to watch for is knocking and pinging, most of these were made to run on low octane, but if they ping, you may need more umph. I have a couple of Nissans, no problem with pinging or low grade fuel.

87 octane is what is used, I checked this out and they say if u use higher octane u can cause cold start problems, and that it was a waste of money.

Is the electric fuel pump on a 1993 Ford Van supposed to run intermittently or all the time?


There are two types of pump fitted to that year model. One continuous with a return feeder pipe for excess fuel and one a pressure type that only feeds as required. Without looking I won't know. Is the car having trouble running?

#3 CYLINDER IS FULL OF FEUL AND TRUCK WILL NOT START.REMOVED SPARK PLUGS AND GAS POURS ON GROUND WHEN KEY IS TURNED ON FROM #3 CYLINDER PLUG HOLE.


The Vortec engines were notorious for those kind of problems. The problem will be under the upper-intake manifold, and the fuel injector assembly will either have a cracked plastic fuel line running out to one or more of the fuel injectors, or the fuel pressure regulator that is located on the end of the fuel injector assembly is faulty or it has detached from the fuel injector assembly. Either way the lower intake manifold will be flooded with fuel anytime that the fuel pump runs.

There were two types made, the first type had fuel lines that connected to the lower intake manifold, and then from the metal fittings the fuel line turns into plastic and runs inside the lower intake manifold and under the upper-intake manifold where it runs over to the fuel injector assembly, and this type can really flood out an engine when it becomes faulty.

The second type had metal fuel lines running over the upper intake manifold and they connected to the top of the fuel injector assembly, however, under the upper-intake manifold there are still plastic lines to the fuel injectors and also the fuel pressure regulator that could be faulty and cause the engine to severely flood.

The upper-intake manifold is not that difficult to remove, and after you remove the upper-intake manifold then (replace the fuel lines to the fuel injector assembly if it is the second type) turn the ignition to the "Run" position and when the fuel pump runs you should see where the fuel is leaking/spraying from, and it will most likely be a large high pressure leak from a ruptured plastic fuel line.

Let me know if you require any further assistance.

2002 jaguar s type fuel filter location please


1) jack-up left front of car (drivers-side)and remove wheel.
2) Remove plastic inner fender .
The maintenance schedule is every 12-thousand miles.

Caution prior to removing fuel filter-
Pull the fuel pump relay or fuse while engine is running, this will disable the electric fuel pump and release fuel pressure in line.

My son filled up by 2001 volvo with a tank full of


Drain the fuel asap. Race fuel is not meant for a everyday car it will ruin the engine since its not set up to run on that type of fuel, its probably kicking a code to you engine due to this to make it run this way. If you drain the tank and then fill it with normal 87,89,91 octane gas you should be ok. Not too sure on how to drain the tank on that year Volvo.

Im wanting to convert my 2002 V6 2.0 X type to lpg,but have been given lots of different stories regarding Valve seat recession.Anybody help?


You have been given false information, in old cars that were not designed to run on unleaded fuel then yes, but your car was designed to run specifically on unleaded fuel and will run just fine and even more emmisions free on LPG gas, the only draw back to LPG is the size and location of the fuel tank required to use LPG as your exclusive source of fuel. being that it is a car you will looses storage space in your trunk area and the oter draw back depending on where you live is availability of filling staations... but absolutely no internal engine concerns.

1982 240 volvo


Hello,

Your engine does NOT have a carburator. Unless the engine was replaced by an earlier one, 1982 Volvo's were fuel injected.

This is an older fuel injection design that is a "constant flow" type system ie. there is a constant spray of fuel while the engine is running. Newer fuel injection systems, including Volvo, are "demand" type systems where fuel is only sprayed through the injectors when the engine electronics signal it to do so.

In any case, this older system is very sensitive to vacuum leaks. Check all your hoses for splits, hardening or connection looseness. Check the seals on each fuel injector (there are 4, one for each cylinder). If they are hard or cracked, replace them.

The later problem was the case on my 1981 240 which had the same problem. New fuels injector seals and the car runs perfect.

Good Luck,

Dr of Motors
