Parent Category: Fuel and Engines
Fuel is a requirement for all internal-combustion engines. Fuel is stored inside a tank. A fuel pump then siphons the fuel into the fuel intake which is connected to either a carburetor or a fuel injection system.
Relays are located in the engine compartment fuse panel
All you need to do is open up your hood. Then on the left side  should be your air intake. Take off the cover and there should be  some clips around the outside of the box that you unclip. Also  loosen and detach the big tube in the front. When that is off and  the clips are off just lift up the...

Bleed the fuel lines at the injectors, driver's side of the head,  by cracking them open and turning the motor. Video in the link.
Go to your local Auto Parts store and purchase a new fuel filter and look at it. You now know what it looks like.   I have a 89 F250. Its on the inside of the driver side frame rail up by the trans and its behind a heat shield.
It doesn't have or need a line connected to it. The spider is  inside the vacuum chamber.

thats about right , explorer is heavy vehicle and the engines are  not economical
Because of medium melting point , medium linear coefficient of thermal expansion and medium thermal conductivity.
Not enough information. There are different 4.6's! Also, there are different weights and drivetrains in vehicles. I have a 1998 Ford F150 truck that gets up to 17 Mpg. This vehicle is fairly light (no extended cab, short bed, and does not have 4 wheel drive). It does have a fairly low gearing in the...

Open the hood, look toward your left, and go to the firewall. There  is a black box, this is where it lives.
Start with a full tank of gas and reset your trip odometer to zero. When it's time to fill the tank again, divide the number of miles you traveled on that tank by the number of gallons needed to fill the tank again. So, if you traveled 350 miles and your car took 14 gallons to fill the tank: 350/14 ...

    The fuel filter is located on the passenger side near the firewall. It is a silver-colored cylinder with hoses on each end. You have to disconnect it from the car and try to pull it out far enough to pull the hoses off. My 1993 had really short hoses and it didn't come out far enough...
 == Answer ==   could be several things. 1st is the car actually overheating. If so then it could be a stuck thermostat or a bad water pump.     If it is not really overheating my bet would be a falty temp sensor. The temp sensor is what actually tells the light to turn on.

Actually the filter on an automatic transmission is just a screen to keep the big chunks of metal from being sucked up into the pump. Most people replace them because they come with the kit of a seal and filter.
  pull the cover off the top of the engine, there are 3 - 10mm nuts , I believe & you'll see the fuel filter next to the oil filter. Although I haven't physically changed mine, I do believe it is the typical twist to unscrew. also, make sure you fill the new filter with diesel fuel before...
  the fuel filter is located right in front of the passenger rear wheel. You'll have to jack the car up in that spot to change it.
  == Answer ==   Get an inexpensive syphon hose
  You're going to have to drop the tank. Syphon out all the gas. Take off the tank straps and let it down. Have some felt of an old leather belt around to put between the tank and the straps when you put it back up. I'm betting the old rubber is pretty well gone by now.
Both of these are internal combustion engines, which means the fuel  burns inside the cylinders.   A cylinder is an enclosed space with a movable lid called a piston.  Fuel and air are drawn into the cylinder. A spark causes the  mixture to ignite in a petrol engine, whereas in a diesel engine...
  == Answer ==   On my '96, I had multiple malfunctions like this. It was finally traced to a ground wire under the dash. The wire was under the right side and bolted to the cowl strucure. The bolt was in place but slightly loose so that arcing had eroded the bolt hole. The shop drilled a...

It won't cause permanent damage to the engine than carbon buildup, but it might damage the in-tank fuel pump, clog the catalyst, and ruin the oxygen sensor. But first, I will assume that what happened was that, by mistake, the car was filled with diesel in the tank at a gas station. Then, I will...

Hey John==It is quite involved. Get a manual from the local parts store and it should have pictures and everything. Good luck, Joe
  It is possible to punch a hole in the tank and let the gas out that way.   No, you will not cause a spark. Tanks are designed not to spark if punctured in an accident.
