Still won't start? Does that mean it didn't start before you replaced the filter? Obviously it wasn't the filter. Get back to basics. Test for spark and fuel. A filter is almost never the cause of a no-start.

How do you replace the fuel filter for a 1989 Buick Le Sabre?

To replace a fuel filter, locate the fuel pump relay and unplug it. Now, start the car and wait for it to die from lack of fuel. Then try to start it a few more times to make sure most of the fuel in the lines is gone. No, find the fuel filter and remove it via nessecary means. Be aware that some fuel will still come out when the lines are loosened and removed. Put the new filter on and tighten lines to spec, or use appropriate clips. Plug in the fuel pump relay again and turn the key on, then off a few times waiting 5 seconds before shutting it off and doing it again (without starting the engine). This will prim the fuel lines. Then start the engine and look at the filter while running to check for leaks.

How to determine if fuel pump is working on 1988 Pontiac 6000.?

Get a can of throttle body cleaner.....spray throttle body cleaner into the throttle the blade and shoot some into the throttle body. Then try to start the car...if it starts, then you have a fuel delivery problem. Hook a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel rail and just turn the key on and see what pressure you get. If no pressure then it is either your fuel pump OR a clogged fuel filter. You can then put a new fuel filter on, test the pressure again and if still no pressure, you are pretty much looking at the fuel pump. If you get fuel pressure at the fuel rail and it still won't start then you probably have an injector problem.

A 1996 Nissan Sentra has no fuel pressure does it have a fuel shut off and if so where is it located?

Check fuel pump fuse. If you have changed the fuel filter on a 2000, you might have forgotten to put the rubber grommet between new fuel filter and fuel pump (look at your old fuel filter).

You need to have the fuel pressure tested. The pump may seem to be working but not the required pressure needed.

It could be your fuel filter needs replaced or possibly your fuel pump itself is on its way out. I would try replacing the fuel filter first.

How do you get 2004 vw beetle started when out of gas?

I have found that on the diesel once you put fuel in the tank, you then have to put fuel in the fuel filter on the passenger side of the engine compartment. Once you do that then you can try to start the beetle. once it starts after a few tries you might want to open the drain cock on the bottom of the fuel filter to get all the air out of the line. This is how I did it. and it work for me.
