Parked my 2005 ford freestyle and went to bed. next morning it would turn over but not start. 1/2 tank of gas. that was Tuesday. where is the stem like fixture on the line to check pressure? and what else...


The stem like fixture is called a schreader valve and it looks like a car tire air stem. It's on the fuel rail. So from your injectors trace back to the main line then follow that back until you fine the valve. Most fuel pump are good for around 80k - 100k before they fail. I would press the valve and see if you have fuel come out first. Insert key in ign. turn to on position (Wear safety goggles) then press valve. If gas shoots out It's probably not you pump. If it doesn't have gas come out then I'd check the fuse center under the hood and check the fuel pump replay fuse to see if it's good. Check the fuel pressure regulator also and check to make sure you have spark going to your plugs. Maybe your CPS (Cam or crank position sensor) went out.

Siphoning gas


The fuel tanks have protective baffles in the fill stem and they block hoses from entering the tank.
There is an easy way to remove fuel. Two things you will need to do are Look up the fuel pump RELAY wiring in the Powerbox under the hood and buy a tire valve removal cap. Some tire stem caps made of metal have removal tools incorporated in the stem cap, inexpensive, Walmart or Kmart.
Why do you need a tire valve stem cap? To remove the stem valve in the fuel rail test port on the engine. Once this is removed you have an opening for fuel to come out. Remove the valve and slide a rubber hose over the stem and clamp it down. Around a 1/4 inch or 3/8 inch internal diameter hose, long enough to reach an empty gas can. Now you are ready to pump.
To pump, remove your fuel pump Relay. Look at your obtained diagrams of the Fuel pump relay Layout. Jump the 2 terminals. Maybe 27 and 34, Look for Yourself as Layouts differ. The fuel pump will pump when jumped.
I removed 17 gallons in about 15 Minutes with a blocked pump. Do this on a COLD engine. Outside, well ventilated. It works.
Suggest topics like-"Fuelpump Relay Bypass", "2000 Lincoln Town car Powerbox Layout". Or See Autozone Help section on Web after registering your car.
Tire stem caps will cost about $3 for 4 pack, fuel hose about $7 for enough. small clamp $?.

Bought a barely used 2010 Cannodale I think it is a road bike. Haven't biked for 25 years. Needed to add air and all I did was let out all the air. Trying to use remaining air in a turned off...


The adapter for car tires should work on the bike tires. If you are using a compressor with a regulator and gauges then with a full tank of air adjust the regulator so the output gauge is set to the pressure you want the bike tire be be. This makes it take longer to fill the tire but reduces the changes the tire is overfilled and damaged. If you have an old fashioned bike pump and want some exercise that is different than biking then that works also. The valve stems on the bike tires have threads just like the car valve stems and the valves and caps are interchangeable.

The pump is connected to the tire and when I turn it on, the power turns on but does not pump tire. The pressure reader is higher than the current pressure than the tire. I have even tried turning the...


The end that connects to the valve stem on some of these pumps doesn't always extend into the stem far enough to push the valve open. Using a valve stem tool, back the valve stem out a few turns so the hose end can engage the valve. The valve may leak just a bit but the pump will overcome this and you'll turn the valve back in when you remove the pump hose before you can lose any appreciable amount of air.

The pressure gauge on my Topeak Joe Blow Ace floor pump is not working. The pump works fine. How do i take the pump apart and what should I be trying to do to repair?


http://www.ehow.com/how_4779541_inflate-bicycle-tire-presta-valve.html

  1. Rotate the wheel so the valve is resting just above the floor. Remove the valve cap.

  2. Unscrew the locking nut on the valve stem. Quickly press down the stem to loosen the seal. You should hear air escaping when the stem is pushed in--if you do not, loosen the nut and try again.
  3. Press the pump head onto the valve and flip the locking lever to make a seal. You'll hear air escape, but it should stop after you've locked the lever. If air continues to leak out, remove the pump head and reattach it.
  4. Make two pump strokes and listen for air moving into the tire. If the pump handle becomes hard to press down after only a few strokes, or if the pressure gauge elevates extremely quickly, remove the pump head and repeat Step 3.
  5. Inflate the tire to its recommended pressure. Remove the head by unlocking its lever and quickly pulling it off the valve stem. Secure the valve's locking nut and cap.

How to put air in the tires the stems are different


Your bike tube has Presta style valves. Automotive style valves are known a schraders. To inflate the tube, you will need either an adapter, presta to schrader or a hand pump that has a head for presta valves. Any bike shop will have one for sale. To fill the presta valve style, remove the black cap(if it is there) You will see little stem with a small knurled nut. Screw the nut all the way up until it stops. Put the pump head over the stem, making sure it is pushed down. Flip up the lever on the pump head, fill to desired pressure 100 to 120psi...yes, that much pressure, it's a road bike. Flip the lever on the pump head down and remove it from the stem. The PSST you will hear is the air from the line on the pump...not the tire. Screws the knurled nut down and replace the black cap. If you do not srew the little nut down and push on the stem you will let the air out of the tire. If you need more help, you can email me @ danklett@yahoo.com and I will send you pictures of the process, or the staff at your local bike shop should be able to show you how.
