All depending on what bike it is ?you can put a length of wire inside the pipe to give it shape and stop it kinking.

    its a 1982 sazuki gs 750 t . . we have a gas filter attached and having a problem getting it from kinking. will a piece of hanger work.

  • adam bikedoc Apr 12, 2015

    yes as long as there is plenty of room for the petrol to get past it ,it just gives the pipe body and stops kinking, you can shape it too so it fits under the tank neatly like this.

  • adam bikedoc Apr 12, 2015

    obviously don't feed the wire not the filter or it will break the filter gauze,but just so you know there should be a filter on the fuel tap in the tank anyway.

  • adam bikedoc Apr 12, 2015

    was supposed to say dont feed the wire into the filter.

Fuel pressure 1998 jeep grand cherokee 4.0 L V6

You should have a test port on the Fuel Supply rail, use a tool from a local auto parts "Tool Loaner program" where you can borrow tools for free,w/a deposit of course,then follow the steps provided;

MPI Fuel System Pressure Test

The MPI fuel system used in vehicles equipped with a 4.OL engine employs a vacuum balanced pressure regulator. Fuel pressure should be approximately 55-69 kPa (8-10 psi) lower with the vacuum line attached to the regulator than with the vacuum line disconnected. System fuel should be 214 kPa (31 psi) with the vacuum line connected to the regulator and 269 kPa (39 psi) with the vacuum line disconnected. CAUTION: Some fuel may be discharged when connecting fuel gauge to fuel rail.
  1. Connect a 0-414 kPa (0-60 psi) fuel pressure gauge to test port pressure fitting on fuel rail (Fig. 7).
  2. Remove vacuum line from pressure regulator.
  3. Start the vehicle.
  4. Note gauge reading. With vacuum line disconnected, fuel pressure should be approximately 269 kPa (39 psi).
  5. Connect vacuum line to pressure regulator. Note gauge reading. Fuel pressure should be approximately 214 kPa (31 psi).
  6. If fuel pressure is not approximately 55-69 kPa (8-10 psi) higher with vacuum line removed from regulator, inspect pressure regulator vacuum line for leaks, kinks or blockage. CAUTION: Fuel pressure will rise to as much as 655 kPa (95 psi) when the fuel return tine is pinched shut, shut engine down immediately after pinching oft fuel return line.
  7. If fuel pressure is low, momentarily pinch shut the hose section of the fuel return line. If fuel pressure remains low, inspect the fuel supply line, fuel filter, and fuel rail inlet for blockage. If fuel pressure rises replace fuel pressure regulator.
  8. If fuel pressure is above specifications, inspect the fuel return line for kinks and blockage.

Capacity Test

  1. Remove the cap from the pressure test port in the fuel rail.
  2. Connect a 0-414 kPa (0-60 psi) fuel pressure gauge to the pressure fitting on the fuel rail (Fig. 7).
  3. Start the vehicle. Pressure should be approxi- mately 214 kPa (31 psi) with the vacuum hose connected to the pressure regulator and 269 kPa (39 psi) with the vacuum hose removed from the pressure regulator.
  4. If the pressure is not to specification, check the following before replacing the fuel pressure regulator:
  • 4a - Inspect the fuel supply and return lines/hoses for kinks or restricting bends
  • 4b - Check the fuel pump flow rate. A good fuel pump will deliver at least 1 liter of fuel per minute with the fuel return line pinched off. If the fuel pump does not pump adequately, then inspect the fuel system for a plugged fuel filter or fuel pump inlet filter (sock). Fuel pump flow rate can be done by connecting one end of an old A/C gauge hose to the fuel test port on the fuel rail and inserting the other end of the hose into a container of at least 1 liter capacity. Run the fuel pump by installing a jumper wire into diagnostic connector terminals D1-5 and D1-6. Be sure to pinch off the fuel return line or most of the fuel will be returned to the fuel tank.

Fuel pump kicks on but not getting fuel to fuel rail

Check fuel pressure at test port, fuel filter and inspect the whole fuel line for kinks & crimps. If that doesn't work disconnect the fuel filter then use high pressure air to blow from the pressure regulator to the removed filter to ensure that the line is clear and open. Hook everything back up and check for pressure.

I have a kinked quick connect fuel line on 2001 chevy blazer, it has tag on it says non repairable. Can I repair it

You can try to un.kink it with a pair of plyers.If you can't fix it you can get the gas tank fuel lines from

The car seems to have an obstruction in the gas line, won't take gasoline easily from the punp. Turns pump off continuosly.

Dan the reason it takes it from a gas can is there is no pressure building up in the line as you would have from a gas tank. As you fill the tanks the air inside of the tank has to go out as the tank fills up. I would suggest checking the fill hose thats connected to the gas tanks and the spout inlet where you put the hose to fill the tanks and check for kinks in the hose. Second there should be a vent hose from the tanks that connects to the spout also check it for kinks or blockage this would prevent air from escaping from the tank causing the gas pump to cut off due to the rapid filling of the tank without the air being able to escape. Hope this helps

Hard to put fuel in tank

You have a vent line kinked or clogged, get underneath the truck right where the fuel nozzle is and look for the 2 lines coming from there. Follow these two lines and check for any kinks, if there are no kinks you will have to pull the lines off and check for any blockage on the inside of the lines.

My fuel pump is running but not pumping fuel from tank

assuming you already checked for fuel flow at the filter, it coud be a plugged strainer at the pump or the hose that connects the pump to the fuel line in the tank has separated. also check for may kinks or line damage

Where is the fuel filter located on a 93 ford f150 xlt 5.8?

1990-94 ENGINES The filter, with these engines, is located amidships on the left frame rail. The filter should be changed either every 15,000 mi. (24,000 km), or 15 months, whichever comes first. The filter should also be changed whenever a fuel delivery module is replaced. CAUTION
To prevent siphoning of fuel from the tank when the filter is removed, raise and support the front end of the truck above the level of the tank.
  1. Relieve fuel system pressure. See Section 5. When working in hot weather, work quickly to complete filter replacement before the fuel pressure rebuilds!
  2. Unsnap the filter canister from the retaining clips.
  3. Disconnect the quick-connect couplings and remove the filter. WARNING
    Be careful to avoid kinking the fuel lines! To install:
  4. Noting the direction-of-flow arrow on the new filter, connect the fuel lines.
  5. Snap the filter into the clips.
  6. Turn the ignition switch to RUN several times - without starting the engine - and check for leaks.

When adding gas to the tank it comes out the small hose up inside the quarter panel as fast as you can put it in.

The small hose is a vent line that is put in place to do just that vent the fuel, many times fuel will back feed out the vent line when it is very hot outside due to expansion of the gases, also if you have a kink in the fuel fill line going into the fuel tank, if you can't physically see the kink you may have to have the tank dropped for a closer look especially if someone else was in the tank to repair something like the fuel pump etc. once before. it is possible they forced the fuel filler line into the tank without realizing they caused the "kinked line" situation, perhaps the fuel tank was damaged from an accident as well causing all these problems, look for anything that appears to be unusual such as dents, kinked lines, perhaps the fuel tank hanger straps were jarred and the fuel tank was moved into a wrongful fit under the vehicle.

The check engine light merely tells you when the computer sensors detect a problem. It cant fix anything.
Fuel line kinks will need to be replaced in such a way that they do not kink again.
some kinks you may be able to straighten and have work properly though the danger is that the inside of the fuel line may be compromised.
