Q: Possible problem with my fuel pump or fuel filter.

asked by on

I'm not sure, but I think I have a problem with either my fuel filter or my fuel pump. How do I know what the problem is?

What makes you think it is a fuel problem. I would need more information before I can help you diagnose the problem. The proper way to check for fuel issues is to put a fuel pressure gauge on the fuel system to check for pressure. Working with a pressurized fuel line can be dangerous and should be done by a qualified technician.
