Gas in my battery compartment


Many bikes have a fuel overflow at the fill opening at the tank. So excess fuel can drain to the ground. This is done with a tube that comes from the rear of the tank (close to the seat) and routes down under the frame to the ground. If that tube is routed to your battery box then you have a safety issue. Make sure you do not have this drain tube/hose routed to your battery box. I am sure you don't want a fire under your seat.

How to change fuel filter on the 2006 scion xa


Open the hood and locate the fuel filter. If the fuel filter is not in the engine compartment, follow the fuel line from the tank until the fuel filter is located.

If the fuel filter has a clear case, inspect the filter element for dirt.

If the fuel filter case is not see-through, remove it from the fuel line. Drain the fuel from the filter into a container and inspect the condition of the fuel.

Install the new fuel filter making sure that the flow is in the correct direction. The arrow on the fuel filter is the direction of flow from the tank to the engine.

89 300E, sitting for 2 years, getting fuel to fuel distributor, but not to injectors. How does the fuel distributor work? and how can I test it?


The fuel distributor is mostly mechanical. It does however require a few signals from a small computer for idle speed and mixture adjustment.. I would look close for broken/chewed wires. Does the air flow meter move freely? Thats the large plate right in the middle of the distributor.

Car wont run how can I determine if the problem is the fuel pump?


Disconnect the fuel-in line from the fuel filter, located in the engine compartment, and place the end of that line into a container. Turn the ignition to on. If fuel flows strong from the fuel line, your fuel pump is ok. If no gas, something is wrong with the fuel pump or no current is getting to the fuel pump.

Discovery land rover will not fire.


try taking the air cleaner assembly off you might not be getting enough air to engine
if this is the case then the throttle body needs to be maintenanced

heres another suggestion it just hasnt sucked gas to the engine to crank over sometimes they help

go out buy an electric fuel pump
find the fuel inlet source to engine hook up electric fuel pump
attach only ground to something in engine compartment
then get a can so that when gas comes out it has something to go into
tap the electric fuel pump power lead to the positive of battery let run till gas comes out make sure not to spark your working with gas
once gas becomes present detach electric fuel pump all the way set aside
hook gas line back to port and then start vehicle this should start

also with fuel filters there are 3 on a vehicle
one in engine compartment
one on chassis back by the tank
and one in the tank called the sending unit this has a filter in the tank this one could be clogged
make sure these filters are in the right position with gas flow flowing in right direction
