The 1985 Lincoln Town car should be equipped with an internal electric fuel pump. The tank is located in front of the carrier for the rear differential. It's difficult to change a pump with the tank still in its' seating.
It depends on the type of sanitizer the pool is on. There are 3 main EPA registered sanitizers for pools...chlorine, bromine, and biguanides. I'm going to assume all the answers below the primary sanitizer the customer is using is chlorine. Yes, your sand can last 4 to 5 years, possibly 6 on a chlorine pool without being changed, assuming that you chemically clean it once a year and backwash as needed. Now, if your pool is using a non-chlorine sanitizer (bi-guanide) Baquacil as an example, you MUST change the sand maxium every 2 years and clean it at opening and midseason every year. Baquacil is a VERY filter dependant product. It does not oxidize waste like chlorine does. It actually collects the particles and traps them in the filter and they stay there. Some will be backwashed out during backwashing, but the rest just stay there until chemically cleaned out. It will literally turn into concrete in the filter if not changed out and kept clean. Just wanted to make this clear that it does make a huge difference depending on the sanitizing system of the pool.
About every 4 years. Actually, any pool professional will tell you the sand in your filter does not need to be changed but once every 20 to 25 years if the water has been maintained properly. If you flush your sand and clean it by backwashing and rinsing weekly (backwashing for 2 minutes, rinsing for 1), you should be able to stay away from changing your sand. I like to advise my customers to use a chemical to clean out their sand annually.
I've been in the trade for 30+ years and have never heard that 20 to 25 year time frame for changing the sand in a sand filter. For one, the filter alone will realistically only last 10 to 12 years - sometimes longer. Rule of thumb is to change out the sand about 5 to 6 yrs. At that 5 yr. time frame the sand looses it's ability to hold the contaminents. The shear motion of the water will,in time, round out the sand particle - thus removing the sharp edges that sand naturally has.
A micro strainer is a way of boiling things.
Many types will be able to suffice in the situation. Take the filter in with you for comparisons and ask for help if needed.
My Haynes manual says that the "96 turn signal/hazard flasher is plugged into the "convenience center" which is mounted at the top of the left kick panel. FriPilot
drivers side mid way back next to the support rail. Its rough getting to.
I didn't find it rough it's about a 3 minute job. The fuel filter is under the rear drivers door near the frame rail. There is a black plastic cover over the gas tank with an access door near the frame rail pull the door towards the frame rail it will pop off then it's two clips on the filter to change.
Front of engine, right side as you're facing engine. It's about a foot down and sits upright in a black case with a spin-on top. You'll need a big socket to remove the top and the old filter will pull out.
probably no gas, if there is gas then your gauge in the tank is broken or frozen
COULD be many things; check the easy/inexpensive ones first; bad/loose plug wire. Clogged fuel filter. If you totally depress the gas pedal and hold it down while cranking, the fuel that may be collected in the cold-start injector will drain - SHOULD even start if the problem is a partially clogged filter.
Spray starting fluid in the throttle body (at the end of the large hose at the motor opposite of where the air filter is) and get it running on the ether, then it should take off on its own. But put in gas first. If you don't have ether (starting fluid), you can also cycle the ignition key to bring fuel to the motor. That is turn the key to the on position (not run), listen for a hum (electric fuel pump), when it ends turn the off. Wait 5 seconds, turn the key back to the run position, and repeat this five times. If this doesn't work, then you have a different problem.
Ether should be used sparingly because it can cause damage to your engine.
Ether is unnecessary, just add gas to the tank, turn the key on and off a couple of times to run the fuel pump, and start.
When you install the other filter under the hood dont screw it on all the way leave it loose so the air can escape the lines
Turn the keys to on position then spiral thing pops up tells you to wait for spark plugs to warm up at the same time it primes the fuel lines too so turn it on wait till light go off, turn off the key and do it again about 5-12 times it can be as long as 2 trys if you did every thing perfectly and you will see or hear the diesel pooring out of the fuel filter under the hood.
4th Tighten the filter
5th turn key to on wait for light to go off and start while pumping gas pedal should start right up.
Very good question and have fun on your project.
best way i know how is to open one of the injector lines a little and turn the engine over till fuel comes out
Realistically, I have owned a 7.3 turbo for 15 years and replaced many fuel filters in many diesels. It has never been necessary to bleed the fuel system.
You don't - according to the service manual. If you must it is located INSIDE the fuel tank as part of the fuel pump assembly. The fuel tank must be drained and removed to complete the procedure.
The question you ask is too involved for a proper answer. You may want to go to a car parts store, or book store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.
Unscrew the panel under the steering wheel, and you should see it bolted underneath. Really easy to replace.
Usually, the line feeding the recepticle has a collar that simply slips back away from the recepticle (You may have to push the line forward and then pull back on the collar.) Then it should release.
you first locate the fuse for the fuel pump. you start the vehicle and then you remove the fuse and let the car quit. you have now relieved the fuel pressure. As well remove the gas cap.
I believe the filter is near the fuel tank probably on the fill side of the tank??? It is a metal cannister typoe and be sure not too pull it until the vehicle sets overnite, open the fuel cap and pull the fuel pump fuse red 10 amp. if you are not sure . donot turn on the key when doing this job fuel sprays under pressure once you open the lines if you do turn on the key!!! could have an injury to yourself or worse!!
Located in the fuel tank- unless there is an access area tank may have to be removed
if your facing the car from the front its just to the right of the wheel(tire)
My husband called advanced auto and they said there are 3 different filters for a 2.4 litre
When you go to buy your filter take your vin # with you because this tell them wich filter you will need
Inline 6 has 6
V8 has 8
Inline 6 has 6
V8 has 8
They put them in the fuel tank now days! To get at it you need to remove the tank and you get the pump from the top. NO there is no other way then removing the tank. The pump is $90 at most stores. No, you do not need the sending unit also. Buy the strainer also or they do not warranty the unit. Yes, I think an access hole makes sense also!
It's in the Tank. The pump, filter, check valve and regulator are all located on the top of the fuel tank.
