Question about 2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

1 Answer

Little square tube???

Thanks for the respone- are you referring to the vapor return tube which runs parallel with the fuel inlet lines up to the neck and disconnects with a two-pronged snap fitting where the metal tube connects to the rubber tube at the metal screens? if so, no clogging there- completeley clean and passable. I had it on my lift today- it's very clean underneath and I didn't see any other venting mechanism...did I miss one?

How do thou replace a fuel line from the motor on a 1998 Buick park avenue


Okay Beverly Anderson...

Not terribly SPECIFIC... there is a whole lot of fuel line.. but the global... non-specific answer is...
CAREFULLY...!!

To me "fuel line from the motor" means the RETURN LINE...
Does not matter... the answer remains the same.

On domestic cars (yours: I think... today)...
The fuel line runs from the bottom of your fuel tank (guessing here) all the way thru a filter, pump... and steel lines + neoprene hoses (typically 5/16")... arriving above your engine: 3.8L yes/no Turbo... fuel injected engine... (thru pressure regulator, see below) into your "fuel rail".

Then... through your PULSING INJECTORS ... for combustion

Again... "TYPICALLY" meaning there is usually a return fuel line BACK to your fuel tank... and a third VAPOR LINE is attached "TYPICALLY" high on the filler neck removing the EVER-PRESENT fuel vapors from the fuel tank.

So to your question HOW?

Get the right sized tubing...
get appropriate FACTORY hose clamps
**...

GENTLY CUT AWAY the hardened rubber ...
Fit the new neoprene hose... softly tighten those hose clamps
(snug: sufficient only to stop leakage (overtightening is worse than NOT tightening)).

If you ever plan on putting this car in a concourse... PURCHASE the EXACT same CHEESY clamps that came from the factory...

**CONCOURSE awards no points for being SMART/SAFE...

Only ORIGINALITY counts!!

So THEY say!!

Hope this helps... ELSE comment me back... (I'll be around).

How to siphon gas in 2001 ford windstar


usually there is a little flapper in the fill tube to prevent siphoning of fuel.

Jan 05, 2015 | 2001 Ford Windstar

The hose is on the side of the gas cap and it runs down to the bottom of the quarter panel. When I filled the gas tank up, gas comes out of this hose. We just had the fuel pump replaced. Its not leaking...


There are normally two hose lines from the fuel filler that run to the tank. The larger one carries the fuel from the nozzle to the tank. The smaller one is a vent hose that allows vapors to leave the top of the tank while filling. These vapors come back to the nozzle area and can be vented and/or collected by the nozzle depending upon air pollution standards in your area. If your second hose is running to the bottom of the quarter panel, it is probably the vent hose that may not have been reconnected at the top of the tank when the fuel pump was replaced. The fuel running down there is from kickback fuel at the time the pump shuts off. The real problem is that the vent line is open on top of the tank and when the tank is full, that can allow vapors and fuel to escape out of there and it could contact hot exhaust areas - a major fire or explosion hazard. Have this inspected and repaired IMMEDIATELY.

When I fill the car up, at some point, fuel spills out before the fuel flow stops automatically as it should.


Hi, probably a clog or mis-positioned vent tube in your filler neck. FYI--- filling your tank on the lowest pump speed will give you more gasoline upon fill up. The higher the fuel delivery rate, the more fuel is vaporized in fumes coming out of the gas pump. Pumps are equipped with vapor recovery, so around 3% of what you are paying for is actually recovered and returned to the station's tanks via vapor recovery. Lower delivery speed reduces vapor, so you actually get more of what you are already paying for. Also, fueling when the air temp outside is lowest (early morning and late evening) produces less fuel expansion and less vapors. Fuel expands with heat, therefore you lose 2% per 10 degrees of heat due to liquid expansion. Lower speed will also help with your overflow issue.
Please rate this answer! Thanks, Mike

How to replace a fuel pump on a1997 Chev Venture



  1. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure and install a pressure test gauge according to the tool manufacturers instructions.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position for 3 seconds, then turn to the OFF position for 5 seconds. Repeat this procedure two or three times to pressurize the system. Again turn the switch to the ON position.
    1. On TBI equipped vehicles, the gauge should read a static pressure of between 9 and 13 psi (62-89kPa)
    2. On SFI equipped vehicles, the gauge should read a static pressure of between 41 and 47 psi (248-325kPa)
    3. If not, check for a clogged fuel filter, a kinked fuel line, or an inoperative fuel pump.
  3. On TBI equipped vehicles, the fuel pressure will drop after the fuel pump stops running due to a controlled bleed in the fuel system. Use of the fuel pressure gauge will determine if the fuel system pressure is enough for the engine to start and run.
  4. No fuel spray from the injector indicates a faulty fuel or ignition system or no PCM control of the injector.
  5. This test will determine if the ignition control module is not generating the reference pulse or if the wiring or PCM are at fault. By touching and removing a test light to B+ on CKT 430 (purple/white wire from the ignition system), a reference pulse should be generated. If the injector test light blinks, the PCM and wiring are OK.







If the pump tests bad...
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  1. Relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Block the front wheels and raise and support the rear of the vehicle safely. Make sure the rear is high enough to accommodate the removal of the fuel cell.
  3. Loosen the fuel filler neck connecting tube clamp at the tank.
  4. Wrap a shop towel around the fuel filter neck connecting tube and slowly remove the fuel filler neck connecting tube from the fuel tank.
  5. Position a siphon hose into the fuel tank through the fuel filler opening. Place the other end into an approved container with enough capacity to hold the fuel in the tank. Siphon the fuel.
  6. Raise the vehicle to gain access to the fuel tank. Make sure the vehicle is safely supported.

  2. Then you can change the pump:
  3. Remove the fuel sender assembly.
  4. Disassemble the fuel pump strainer and the fuel pump: Note the position of the strainer in relation to the pump.
  5. See Figure 3


    Fig. 3: Remove the fuel tank locking ring with a non-sparking (brass) punch.


    1. Support the fuel pump in one hand, and grab the strainer in the other hand.
      1. Rotate strainer in one direction and pull off pump. Discard strainer.





      1. Remove deflector.
    1. Disconnect the fuel pump electrical connector.
    2. Loosen the two connecting clamps, if equipped.
    3. Place the fuel sender assembly upside down on the work bench.
      1. Pull the fuel pump downward to remove it from the mounting bracket, then tilt the pump outward and remove it from the connecting hose or the fuel pulse dampener.
    4. It is recommended to replace the hose and clamps, if equipped.
    To install:
    1. Push the fuel pump assembly into the attaching hose. Attach the pump electrical wires and fasten the hose clamps to the attaching hose and around the pump body, where equipped.
    2. Place the fuel tank sender and pump assembly into the fuel tank. Use a new O-ring seal during assembly.
    3. Then put the tank back in:
      1. If the fuel tank is replaced, transfer the fuel feed and return lines from the mounting clips, the vapor hose from the mounting clips and the vent hose from the vent hose fitting.
      2. Check the fuel filler neck for cracks and holes and replace as necessary.
      3. Install the fuel sending unit.
