SOURCE: I was informed that my 2004 325i power steering

No. Save yourself some money! Do get it fixed though because if you do not, there is no lubrication and the bearings will give out and send the pulley flying into the radiator or worse. If you would like instructions on how to perform this repair, let me know.

SOURCE: i have mazda eunos 30X engine turns over wont start

I do not know much about cars but I once had a similar problem. There is a plug that controls the fuel going to the pump. It is usually housed under the dashboard. Have you checked that? I cannot remember the name of it. Good luck.

How often should we change fuel filter for Nissan Teana


hi Drkmaniir.
Changing out your car's fuel filter may not be at the top of your routine auto maintenance list like oil changes and tire rotations. Heck, you may not even know what a fuel filter is.
But mechanics say periodically replacing fuel filters is a good idea because it helps keep your fuel pump and engine running smoothly.
The fuel pump is designed to catch particles, debris or impurities in the gas tank before the fuel reaches the pump, to ensure only clean gasoline reaches your engine.
"They get overlooked a lot and then can go unchanged for quite awhile with no problem," says Frank Satriano, owner of Coachman Automotive in Clearwater, Florida. "Some cars have them in the gas tank and never get serviced, so it just depends on the car and what the manufacturer recommends."

It's important to note that many newer vehicles come with a non-serviceable filter located in the fuel tank, so you'll want to check your owner's manual to see whether it needs to be replaced.

Why you should replace your fuel filter

Like any filter, debris will clog it up over time. This causes the fuel pump to work harder, which can in turn lead to it breaking down. Engines can also be damaged from contaminated fuel.
"Today's vehicles are equipped with more state-of-the-art fuel injectors, which have very tight clearances," says Katy Kreitzer, service manager of Kreitzer's Automotive Service in Enola, Pennsylvania. "If debris enters the fuel injector, it can clog the fuel passages and damage the injector. This may also result in a dripping of fuel instead of a fine spray mist that is required for efficient combustion."
According to Ford Motor Co., you may want to think about changing the filter if the car is difficult to start, idles rough or stalls, has sluggish acceleration, decreased fuel economy or has a tank of bad gas.

"Thirty thousand miles is a good idea for a ballpark interval."Bob Waeiss, owner of Integrity Automotive in Carmel, Indiana, says the old best practice would be to replace the filter every 30,000 miles but that's no longer the norm, he says."As clean as most fuels are today, you could push that off to 60,000 or 90,000 miles," Waeiss says. "Replacing a fuel filter for the first time at or above 100,000 miles may cause a fuel pump failure. Not sure why, other than over time the filter becomes restricted and the pump has to work harder to push the fuel through the line. When a new filter is installed, the pump can't handle the free flow, and it stops pumping."

However, Kreitzer says prices for a new fuel filter typically costs between $100 and $150, which includes parts and labor.According to Auto Service Costs, the average cost for a mechanic to install a new fuel filter is between $53 and $165, while ordering the part itself can cost around $14 to $60.

I have put a new engine in my Hardbody 3l Diesel and my diesel pump doesnt seem to pump diesel into the engine, could this be because the pump needs replacing?


It could be, but if you haven't replaced the fuel filter for awhile, I'd start there, remember to fill the new filter with clean diesel fuel before installing, it will make the engine far easier to start. Good luck.

I have a bmw e30 325i it cranks but will not start so what can I do to fix it?


Fuel Pump - can you here the pump (usually under the right hand back seat) running with ignition on?
Fuel Delivery (injectors) - squirt some fuel (just a cap full) into the manifold.
Spark - pull a lead off a spark plug and use a spare spark plug resting on the exhaust manifold.
Crank sensor - Injectors won't inject fuel if the ECU thinks the engine isn't turning. Crank sensor is at the front right lower side and as it gets older, the wire gets brittle and breaks most of the time where it meets the hard end. The connector is under the throttle body and should read 500-600 ohms.

Car STILL will not crank after replacing fuel pump by reason of deduction and seems to not be getting gas to the engine & motor will turn over just wont start


Yes, if you hear the pump, the relay is ok. The filter should be replaced, or blown out clear, if you suspect it. A plugged filter will certainly keep the car from starting.

My 2002 BMW 325i is turning on but not starting, what could be the problem


Many kinds of reasons cause the car not start, there is one reason lead to the car not start. The engine all normal circumstances, starter or battery failure will be difficult to start the engine, and can not even start. In this case, we must first understand the use of the starter battery, in order to roughly determine the fault location. If the battery use time has been more than one year, should focus on checking the technical condition; shorter battery use time, not overhaul the starter for a long time, should the check from the starter.

you might pull the fuel filter and see if its getting gas that far up when you try to crank it over...if it is then it could be a clogged fuel filter
