Surely you already check the fuse , next would be to find the pump relay check it for operation, if working properly, check plug at pump assy on tank for pump power, one will be hot all times key is on this is gauge wire, one wire should come on hot for a few seconds when some one cyles the ign key off and on. this would be the same as the time the relay is on.

Problem with emission system or fuel cap not installed properly

Usually a problem in the emission control system or fuel cap not installed properly. Have vehicle scanned to determine the problem

the 69 used leaded fuel, you can get the heads redone and have hardened valve seats installed and you can use unleaded with no problem.

hard to say is the starter turning could also be a fuel problem or electric/ecu problem

Before you can fix the idle problem on your Vauxhall Frontera, you need to find out the cause of the problem. If the problem is with the fuel pump or fuel filter, they would need to be replaced.

Could be as simple as the fuel filler cap installed incorrectly. Usually a problem in the emission control system - have vehicle scanned to determine the problem

fuel filter in the SUZUKI LIANA is installed in fuel tank together with fuel pump

If it leaks fuel it has a leak. Fuel flows from the fuel tank to the engine through fuel lines. A fuel leak is relatively easy to find. Your nose is your best tool. Find a mechanic who knows what he is doing and he will find the problem. This one obviously is not very good.

Dodge stopped using fuel filters. the only thing that works as a filter is the filter/pressure regulator installed in the top of the fuel tank. it ususally is never replaced unless you have a fuel contamination problem.

I would find and replace the fuel filter first and if that's not your problem then check out the fuel pump.Good luck

Need to check fuel pressure and fuel filter first. I think you will find your problem there.

installed wrong or bad fuel pump

Most commong reason on the 1979 and earlier models is dry rot on the fuel lines. When the rubber is 40+ years old it tends to leak. Another common problem is the fuel filter being installed in the engine compartment. Most fuel filters are installed above the distrubitor when they begin to leak they leak directly on to the distrubitor and the spark starts a fire.

It should be located in the fuel tank!!

Motorboats with permanently installed fuel tanks must have at least one B-I extinguisher.

It is necessary to have a fuel filter because, back in the 1930s the fuel was dirty so they installed fuel filters to clean the fuel going to engine.

The whining noise is a common sound and problem with all Chevy trucks and suvs. Yes it is the fuel pump and it does not mean the pump is going out. Chevy recommends to keep the fuel tank 1/2 full at all times to keep the electric fuel pump cool. I've installed many NEW fuel pumps and they also whine/ make noise. It is just a common problem. If you are concerned about the fuel pump then you need to check the fuel pressure with a fuel gauge.

Your pickup is a fuel-injected vehicle versus an old carburetor type. By running the vehicle out of fuel, you have air in the fuel lines and the injectors. The fuel pump cannot push out the air which is causing your problem. I'm sure that if you had a repair manual, it would explain the proper procedure for bleeding the fuel lines. The same problem occurs with diesel engines as well.

Yes, if it is partially clogged. Replace it to find out if that is your problem.
