    1999 Explorer Fuel Pump

    Unfortunately it’s fuel pump time. I pretty much know how to do fuel pumps but I’ve never done it on my own truck. Anything I should look out for in particular? I know that lock ring thing on top of the pump assembly is most definitely going to be rusted beyond belief is there anything I can do...

    Fuel related issue

    99 Eddie Bauer with 4.0 SOHC - 220xxx miles. For about a week now, it acts like its not getting fuel. It will start & run in the morning, but as soon as it gets hot, it dies. And won't start up again until it cools off. It also likes to die at idle, and sputter and backfire. When it does run, it...

    How to: Fuel Vapor Line Repair (EVAP)

    So this is more of a "How I did it" rather than a How-to, but I decided to fully document my repair as I found no info on this before. I don't know how helpful this will be for 91-92 owners, but I'm guessing the only real difference in the systems is that the vapor canister is in a slightly...

    Fuel Pump Dead

    I replaced my fuel filter today so I used the method were you pull the relay to the pump while it’s running to remove pressure from the lines. That definitely worked as I changed the filter and the lines were depressurized. But now my pump isn’t turning on, I don’t hear the usual whirl sound and...

    Slow fuel fill

    My 2006 eb 4.6l won't take any gas and I'm assuming it's cause of that vent hose that runs up to the top of the filler neck. Ive read on a few forums here that ford made a redesigned vent hose, I'm just wondering where would I find that. Or if it would just be better to take it to a mechanic and...

    Best way to relieve fuel line pressure?

    I’m going to attempt to change the fuel filter on my 2000 OHV and was wondering how to depressurize the fuel line. I’ve read that unplugging the inertia switch and then cranking the engine until the fuel runs out, is the best way. I’ve also read that removing the fuel pump fuse and then cranking...

My first problem is getting the two fuel lines going into fuel filter off. They do not use the quick disconnect tool that the out-going fuel line uses, and...
