Question about 1998 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

Fires alright, but appears not to be getting gas. Thought it might be the fuel filter or fuel pump or fuse. I tried it a few times, nothing. Then I left it for a week or so, it started. It ran for a few minutes, then quit. Started again, then quit, started then quit. that was it.

Were is the fuel filter located on a 2005 jeep wrangler SE 2.4L


There is no external inline fuel filter, no manufacturer uses them anymore. There is a nylon fine mesh screen on the inlet to the electric fuel pump, it never needs to be serviced unless the fuel pump is being replaced. Most often even then you just wash it out in Stoddard solvent

Engine has spark also appears to be fuel pressure but wont start .winds over ok partly fires but wont start .was running ok but just stopped and wont go.all fuses etc appear ok.no engine management light...


Recheck your spark and make sure you are getting spark at each cylinder. Check the fuel pressure by popping off one of the gas line and see how strong the flow is, if you have a weak flow your fuel pump isnt operating properly or you have a clogged fuel filter. Give that a try and let me know if that works if not I will take you to the next step.

Not getting fuel to engine


i would start by getting somebody to cycle the key on and off while you listen to hear if the fuel pump is turning on or not. (when the key is turned on the fuel pump will turn on and you should hear it start up and then turn off.) if you can hear the fuel pump come on then i would check to see if the fuel filter is plugged. if you cannot hear the fuel pump you should check your fuses. if all the fuses are good then get a rubber mallot and bang on the bottom of the gas tank. the vibrations usually will get a fuel pump to start up again and your car should start up.(if it fires up after banging on the gas tank, you will need to replace the fuel pump. the banging on the gas tank only works a couple of times. enough to get you home or to a shop to replace.)

BMW 525i will not start


There are six fuse panels for an E39 BMW
Fuses F1 - F45, fuse panel 1, glove compartment. Twist white plastic retainers 90 degrees and pull down from top of glove compartment.
Fuse 31 (10 amp) protects fuel pump relay(K96)

Fuses F46 - F6, fuse panel 2, trunk located behind right side luggage compartment interior panel.
Fuse 54 (15 amp) protects fuel pump relay(K96)

Before I would do any of the following, I would check the above fuses and put a bottle of HEET into the fuel tank. Fuel filter changing is not hard, but it will take you about an hour.
The fuel pump is another story (BMW has a special spanner wrench(16 1 020) to remove and install the threaded collar.

E39 BMW use a two-lobed fuel tank(think saddle bag like). Each with its own fuel level sending unit that has a float connected to a variable resistance wiper contact. To equalize fuel level between the two tank lobes, a siphon pump is installed in the left lobe. The resistances need to be approximately the same. The fuel pump is on the right lobe under the tank sending unit beneath the threaded collar at the top of the fuel tank which is accessed by removing the rear seat cushion. WARNING When removing the fuel level sender or the fuel pump, the fuel tank should be drained to 1/4 capacity or below. The fuel in the fuel line is under pressure (45-75 psi). Always unscrew the fuel tank cap to release pressure in the tank before working on the tank or lines. Disconnect battery negative cable.

The fuel filter is located beneath the center of the car near the driver's seat usually under a protective metal cover held on by small screws. Not hard to replace but car will need to be on jack stands and 1/4 tank or less of fuel in the tank. Definitely wear safety goggles or face shield as the fuel will come out on face. Have a fuel catch pan under the filter. Clamp the fuel line before and after the fuel filter(long metal cylinder) before loosening hose clamps. Loosen center clamping bracket and hose clamps on either end of filter. [Some have an inline fuel pressure regulator.(Remove vacuum hose, pull out locking clip, remove fuel pressure regulator).]
Drain fuel from inlet side of filter and check fuel for rust moisture or other contaminats.
Installation is reverse. When installing fuel filter, ensure fuel flow direction arrow points to front. Should have at least 5 liters of fuel in tank before restarting. The fuel pump will be damaged if run without fuel.

1992 Chevy Lumina will not start when temp is below 0 degrees


Try changing the fuel filter, water trapped in it can freeze. Its a 92 and probably time for a fuel pump. They don't like water either.(Meythonol Fuel) Always change fuel filter when adding antifreeze to fuel
