Many fuel problems are cause by a fuel pressure regulator. it is recommended that you change the regulator with the pump. It is also recommended that you use the original Mitsubishi pump(should be about the same price) so that the pump pressure is also correct. The fuel filter is at the intake of the fuel pump so only filtered gas enters the pump.

2002 Dodge Dakota v-6 won't start the battery so good the starter is good it turns over and cranks but nothing happens I tried starter fluid in the carb.

Here are the usual suspects:
stuck fuel valve/float valve in the carburetor.
clogged fuel filter. or fuel line.
defective fuel pump.
electric fuel pump may be just a blown fuse, or wiring problem. good hunting.

Does anyone have suggestions on a 2002 Altima that has vapro lock?

Vapor lock is caused by fuel getting too hot in a fuel line or fuel rail and is rare since modern fuel system circulate fuel fro the tank to the fuel rails and then excess goes back to the tank. Are you sure you have vapor lock? Please describe all symptoms.

Loses power like not getting fuel

It's probably not getting fuel, BAD fuel pumps on those models. Have a mechanic check the pressure on the fuel injector rail under the hood. It needs 65 PSI for start up and around 60 PSI to run. Could also be the fuel filter, it's under the drivers side door mounted to the frame rail.

Fuel problem 2002 GMC Sierra 1500

Really by the way you describe it you need to check the fuel pressure. There is a valve on the fuel rail for testing it. You will need a fuel pressure gauge. It should have 55 to 65 psi. It will not run on less than 50 psi. If you have less then it will be your pump. Good Luck

Car will not say running

You may have a bad fuel pump, First thing is to change the fuel filter since that's the cheaper of the two and you can find the filter under the driver's side  inside frame rail.
Once that's been changed and you still have the problem then it's a good chance that it's your fuel pump has gone bad. Try doing a fuel pressure test and there should be a think 44 psi at idle, but please dubble check that it is 44 psi for your blazer.
Good luck and the fuel pump is in the gas tank, if your going to have to change the fuel pump, don't forget to change the wire harness from the frame rail to the pump since you have it apart. The harness is only $12.00 and that's a good investment if the wries are getting brittle and a broken wire will get you to drop the tank again.

Changing fuel filter

From what your describing this sounds like you have a bad fuel pump and should be easy enough to verify.Install a fuel pressure gage on the fuel rail. Cycle key on and check for a minimum of 50 PSI. Start engine and verify fuel pressure maintains at least 50 PSI during symptom.

If pressure drops, lower fuel tank to check for B+ on the Pink/Black (PK/BK) and good ground on the Black (BK) while fuel pump relay is energized. If OK, replace faulty fuel pump.
Fuel pressure should run between 50-65 PSI. Fuel pumps are a common failure item on this vehicle especialy during warmer weather.

lower the tank to get to your filter

Engine will not that accelator pedal

I had the same problem. What it is, is low fuel presure at the fuel rail caused by either a bad/clogged fuel pump or a clogged fuel filter. You are supposed to have 33-37 psi at the rail and mine dropped as low as 16 psi. Mine was caused by a secondary fuel tank that was metal. the tank rusted inside and that rust ended up into my main tank. On long trips that rust would build up at the pump causing it to starve the engine of fuel. Ford quoted about 900 bucks to change out the pump.
I suggest buying a pump at somewhere like Napa and installing it yourself, making sure the tank is clear of debis. You can do this for under 200 bucks.
