  • Hi @ChrisFix, watched the video very helpful until the fuel Relay switch. I opened up the panels on the inside of the passenger wheel well like you showed, but I cannot find the relay ANYWHERE! I re-watched over and over but the exact location is never shown in your video! SOMEONE ANYONE PLEASE HELP!!

  • On my car, I have the same problem (last episode) and just so you know, I haven't tried starter fluid because I don't have any. But I CAN hear the fuel pump prime... It still just cranks forever. My dad says it might be a bad fuel filter, because its a pretty old car, its from the 90s i think 93 or 96 but thats what my dad says. Can you help?

  • 1999-2004 Mustangs have the fuel relay inside the CCRM. So check the fuse for the CCRM also! It is located in the engine bay fuse box labelled: F.14 (CCRM) 20AMP. The CCRM lives behind the passenger side fender. It's a small box with the fuel relay inside of it. You might be able to put your ear to the fender and listen for a click. A click doesn't mean it works ok, a click just means it receiving and handing the 12 volts OK. A true test would be a resistance test on the other two pins on the relay Hope it helps others! Great video! I watched it back in 2016, now im watching it again as my pump went out 4 years later haha!

  • I've got a 86 f150 that I believe needs a fuel filter, fuel pump, or egr valve hose(recently discovered it was in 2) but not sure so I'm got all 3 and running through. was heavily neglected to the point changing oil and air filter literally doubled performance lol but its a v8 and when you step off gas its dead quiet and once it warms up on highway speeds 55 mph itll go for a few miles then buck, lose power and try to regain it resulting in a bucking every couple seconds almost like turning a vaccume on and off repeatedly and eventually lose all gas pedal response until it drops to 30 mph. since my last test drive it barley could do 20. any thoughts

    will riseabovewill riseabovePrieš 3 mėnesius
    • @ChrisFix thanks for the reply and help. I haven't checked all vaccume lines but I'm sure thats it as it wants to bog down at idle. cleaned the iac and it was partially clogged with carbon (appreciate the video included bro was a life saver lol) and I'm pretty sure the fuel pumps ok I heard it hum and pushing fuel through but you're videos have been amazing and I really appreciate it man not a single person is as knowledgeable and helpful as you are on cars wish I could sub twice cause you deserve it lol.

      will riseabovewill riseabovePrieš 3 mėnesius
    • I would check all the vacuum lines running around the engine and replace any that are broken, and I would also clean the IAC and throttle body to ensure you're getting the proper flow to the engine:
