Power supply system check, replacement of the fuel filter

Gasoline is extremely inflammable therefore at work with any components of fuel system it is necessary to accept special precautionary measures! Do not smoke, and do not come nearer to a venue of works with open fire or unprotected by the lamp shade carrying. Do not perform such works in the garages equipped with heating devices, working at natural gas (such, as водогреи, dryers, etc.)! The working platform should be ventilated well. At gasoline hit on skin immediately wash away it water with soap. At carrying out any works with fuel system put on goggles and hold near at hand the fire extinguisher. In case of a gasoline spillage immediately wipe a pool, but do not keep the rags impregnated with gasoline in places where the risk of its ignition is not excluded!

System check


  1. At emergence of a smell of fuel during movement or after the car stood on the sun, it is necessary to check a condition of all fuel system immediately.
  2. Uncover a fuel tank and check it on existence of damages and signs of development of corrosion. Estimate a condition of a sealing element of a cover. Defective components replace.
  3. Survey lines of giving and fuel return on existence of cracks and deformations. Estimate reliability of a tightening of shtutserny connections on the fuel distributive highway and the built-in fuel filter.

Before starting service of components of a fuel path do not forget to dump pressure in a power supply system (see. Head of the Power supply system, management of engine/decrease in toxicity of the fulfilled gases and production of the fulfilled gases)!

  1. Having hung out the car, examine a fuel tank and its jellied mouth on existence of holes, cracks and other damages. It is necessary to give special attention to a condition of a joint of a mouth with a tank. Sometimes leakages of fuel arise owing to weakening of collars of fastening of a mouth, or because of rubber aging of which the mouth is made. Attentively study a condition of elements of fastening of a fuel tank, in case of need make the corresponding corrections.

At all do not undertake attempts of independent performance of repair of a fuel tank (excepting replacement of its rubber components), - remember that contact of fuel evaporations containing in a tank to open fire of a gas torch inevitably leads to ignition!

  1. Carefully check reliability of a tightening of all shtutserny connections of fuel hoses and the metal lines going from a tank. Make sure of absence of deformations and signs of aging of materials of flexible hoses. Replace defective components.

Replacement of the fuel filter

Petrol models


  1. Dump pressure in a power supply system (see. Power supply systems, managements of engine/decrease in toxicity of the fulfilled gases and production of the fulfilled gases).
  2. Disconnect electroconducting from the fuel pump.
  1. Disconnect from the fuel filter gasoline pipe lines, turn out fixing bolts and remove the filter assembled to a basic arm.
  1. Liberate the filter from an arm and establish on its place the new.
  2. Further installation is made as it should be, the return to an order of dismantle of components, - track, that the fixture was tightened with demanded effort.

Diesel models

Location of the fuel filter in a path of a power supply system of the diesel engine

1 — the Cover of a jellied mouth of a fuel tank
2 — the Double-thread control valve
3 — the Transient valve
4 — In the atmosphere

5 — the Sensor of a stock of fuel
6 — Nozzles
7, 8 — the Line of return of fuel
9 — ТНВД
10 — the Fuel filter

The fuel filter is switched on in submitting топливопровод on a site between a fuel tank and TNVD.

Sediment plums


  1. Release a drain stopper in the lower part of a working element of the filter and lower from the filter all sediment, - wait the beginnings of an effluence of pure fuel.
  2. Strongly tighten a stopper and make removal from the air filter.

Replacement of a working element


  1. Disconnect electroconducting from the sediment sensor detector.
  1. By means of a suitable key turn out a working element of the filter.
  1. In case of need remove from the filter the sensor detector of a sediment and check serviceability of its functioning by means of an ohmmeter: conductivity between contact plugs of the socket should take place only in the bottom provision of a float. The sensor can be rearranged on a replaceable working element.
  1. Moisten with fuel a sealing ring, screw a working element of the filter in a cover and tighten it manually.
  2. Restore initial connection of electroconducting and топливопроводов, - track correctness of connection of hoses.
  1. Weaken a ventilating stopper and, 7-8 times (prior to the beginning of a fuel exit) having rocked up-down a plunzher, fill the filter with fuel, - in the filter should not remain air jams.
