Very easy really, raise the hood look on the right front fender well, or your left side. You will see a metal canister with a hose on each end. there should be a metal hose clamp securing the filter to the fender well a slot head screw driver will loosen the clamp and remove it so can get to both ends of the filter you will see a white plastic plastic clips going through the connection where hose meets the canister. pull the clips out. Take new fuel filter making sure you have the correct flow direction , new filter should say in and out on each end, and reinstall it like the old on came out. Make sure you carefully put those plastic clips back in the slots the old ones came out of

I replaced the fuel pump in my 1992 Ford Tempo and it still won't start it cranks over but won't start any ideas ?

Are you getting fuel pressure from the pump to the fuel rail? You need to do a fuel pressure test to determine if there is actually a fuel supply to the fuel rail. Is the vehicle getting spark? Have you removed a plug wire and grounded it out while cranking the engine over to test for spark? How did you come to the conclusion the fuel pump was bad? Was the fuel filter changed as well?

Not enough fuel pressure

It is always a good idea to replace the fuel filter , when you replace the fuel pump, the only other thing it could be is a restriction in the lines or at the pick up, was the inside of the fuel tank clean and spotless ?

I have a golf gt tdi 150 which has been chipped to 180 bhp. In the mornings, I start it and it cuts out after few seconds. I then try again and it struggles to start and blows white smoke out of exhaust....

Hi Sue, White smoke is a sign of air in the diesel system. It seems as if the fuel line is sucking in air. The most likely place is the fuel filter seal. The best way of sorting out the problem is to replace the filter with a good quality replacement fuel filter. Regards John

My Acura once in awhile cuts out.

Hello Bob,

Thanks for choosing me, I am not sure how well you maintain your car. But one of the most common things that a lot of my customers forget about or neglect with out realizing it, is one of the cheapest things to replace and that is your fuel filter. If it cuts out just once in a while, but run otherwise pretty good, then first thing I would replace is the fuel filter. And also check your air filter and always a good idea to have your injectors cleaned now and then. BUT my gut feeling is that it most likely is your fuel filter is dirty, and needs replacing. I hope this helps, Mike.

Here also for your convince a link to my personal page Mp ads, for the future if you want to use me directly again.

Also if you can rate my solution accordingly and some kind words , I would be grateful.

Thanks for choosing me, Mike

Where is the fuel pump relay on a 1992 ford tempo?

The fuel pump relay is part of a large relay control unit called the IRCM (intagrated relay control module)

The module is about 6"x4"x2" and has gobs of wires (large retangular connector) coming out of it, the module is mounted on a bracket under the hood that is bolted to the top of the driver's side front strut tower, this module can be self tested by a dealer to see if it is bad, they seldom fail, I am a Ford dealer tech and have only replaced 2 in 20 years, Tempo does however have a fuel pump issue..

Shaking the filter says that there is a lot of crud in your gas tank that is being sucked into the fuel lines so short of buying gas filters by the case you should drop the tank and clean it out. Hope this helps.

It is possible a fuel problem BUT,,,You might want to take a look inside the distributor cap because if you dont maintain the tune ups properly the dist.cap and rotor can crossfire sue to all the build-up inside,Always use a OE(from honda)cap and rotor as they last longer and always the proper fit! let me know if this helps have a good day Darrell
