The fuel filter mounts to the top of the fuel tank. Be sure you release fuel system pressure before attempting replacement.

The fuel pump is installed in the top of the fuel tank as part of the fuel pump module. The module includes the electric fuel pump, fuel pump reservoir, inlet strainer, fuel pressure regulator, fuel gauge sending unit, fuel supply line connection.

if the engine turns over, but just doesn't start, you need to do some checking, check for spark from the coil, or coil packs, if that checks out ok, have the crank and cam shaft position sensors checked, timing belt, computor. I know it's a pain, but I have worked on cars for 40 years, something like this you have to use process of elimination, without testing, you could replace things you don't need. ( expensive) good luck).

SOURCE: i got gas leak coming from the fuel line

First off, what kind of vehicle do you have? I assume it is one that has an electric fuel pump in the gas tank, so that is what my answer will be geared to.
On the gas tank there are several lines. The most important ones for this conversation are the ones that deliver fuel to the engine and the one that returns the excess fuel back to the tank. They are usually different in size.
The larger one delivers the fuel and the smaller one returns the excess fuel back to the tank. Either one may be the culprit in this scenero.The tank is usually connected by a high pressure flexible fuel line to a stainless fuel line resembeling a brake line. At times this flex line may develope a leak for varrious reasons. It could be something rubbing against the line, it could be the crimped connection went bad and is leaking, etc. If it is your flex line, which it probably is there is a repair kit you can purchase to fix it. I have only been able to find this repair kit at NAPA. I've tried many auto parts stores and they are the only ones that carry it. The use of it is very simple actually. You find the leak in your line, which by the way is harder than it sounds and usually involves removing the gas tank. In which case you will need a special tool to disasemble the gas line from the tank. Once the leak is located you cut the line. You then have to place the remaining flex hose in boiling hot water for at least 10 seconds, which makes it soft and insert a splice fiting into it. When the line cools, it will shrink tight on the connector. You the do the same with the hose that came with the repair kit. Then do the same with the other end and install the fitting which connects to the gas tank. You should now be in business.
BTW. I have to do this very thing tomorrow.
Good Luck! and let me know if this helps you.

SOURCE: Fuel pump/filter?

It sounds like it could be the pump, but if you don't know the history of the filter, just change it. It might sound silly but make sure there is enough gas in the tank, the pumps normaly whine when they pump air e.g. no fuel. If the problem is not solved after changing the fuel filter (15 minute job) then when you have the fuel pump out check that the fuel pickup is attached because the problem may lie there. When you change the fuel filter let the fuel drain from the fuel rail (engine side) just incase there is an obstruction of debris there, this would be rare but I have seen it.

Okay, you need to make sure the fuel pump is getting power and that you have the lines hooked up correctly. Also, when you replace fuel pumps you need to remove the air cleaner and use starter fluid to get the engine started.

Usually that is a bad fuel pump. Filter is not on the tank. Test it when it doesn't start, or listen, as when you first turn the key to "run", you should hear the fuel pump cycle.

Ran out of gas. Put gas in it started right up then after a few minuts it shut off. Put gas in carb it runs till gas is used up. Where is fuel filter and is the fule pump in gas tank?


Fuel filter is located on the inside frame rail under the drivers door and the fuel filter is located in the gas tank. Start with the simple and change the fuel filter first, but it is common for the fuel pump to burn out when the gas tank has run out of fuel, but since your engine started back up. Good chance that your fuel pump may still be good and your fuel filter may have pick up dirty from the bottom of the gas tank which is causing your engine not to get any fuel.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck

I have a 1989 Bronco 2 and it is not getting the fuel right. I think it is the fuel pump. Does anyone think what else it would be. I already replaced the filter. How would I replace the fuel pump?


The fuel pump is in the tank. Drop the gas tank.

1. Support the gas tank with a jack or something
2. unbolt the gas tank straps
3. unscrew the rubber filler neck going to gas tank
4. Lower gas tank slowly and disconnect gas lines
5. Turn the retainer ring that holds the fuel pump in the tank and left out.
6. Drain gas into gas cans to make the gas tank easier to left
7. Replace fuel pump and reinstall gas tank.

Gas filter location on a 2005 chev. 2500hd pick up it is not along frame rail like on 98-2001 models


As of 2004, fuel filters are in the fuel tank as part of the fuel pump.They have a life expectancy of around 150,000 miles as to that is when the fuel pump starts to fail. You can get more life out of the fuel pump if you keep the gas tank over 1/4 at a time, the more the better since it's the gas that keeps the fuel pump cooled. The fuel pump has a double filter system, there is a filter screen on the pump unit housing about 3/4 up so all the larger dirty stays at the bottom of the gas tank, and then another finer screen on the pump pick up tube it self in the housing. With the double filter system, it has a much longer life and will out last the pump it self. Good luck and hope this helps and best thing you can do as mentioned is keep gas above 1/4 and add fuel injector cleaner once a month to your gs tank or every time your service the truck.

How do I get to the fuel filter in the gas tank.


I have never seen a fuel filter in the gas tank, fuel pump yes. To get to anything in the tank the tank has to be removed from the vehicle.
