Which fuel line is the return line?

Which fuel line is the return line? The vapor-return line normally runs from the fuel pump or the fuel filter to the fuel tank. This vapor-return line is connected to a special outlet in the fuel pump. Any vapor that forms in the fuel pump returns to the fuel tank through this line.

What size is the fuel line on a Saturn Ion? Fuel Line Hose (24080) by Thermoid®. Inside Diameter: 5/16″. Length: 25′.

Is there a recall on a 2006 Saturn Ion? GM’s number for the initial recall is 13454 and 14063 for the expansion. Note: Until the recall repairs have been performed, it is very important that customers remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the vehicle key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring.

Why do I keep getting air in my fuel line? Your fuel supply system is between your fuel tank and the transfer pump. A leak in this area can lead to air getting sucked in by the fuel system. Lastly, a failed injector combustion seal is another common cause of why air gets into your fuel system.

Which fuel line is the return line? – Additional Questions

How do you get air out of gas lines?

When I open my gas cap air comes out?

Modern gas tanks are sealed. If your car is letting out air from the gas tank filler whenever you unscrew the gas cap, gas tank vapors are not being routed back the the engine properly. Your car’s EVAP system needs to be inspected.

Why is there pressure when I take my gas cap off?

The overpressure in your tank is completely normal. Gas has a relatively high vapor pressure, which means it tends to vaporize easily and even builds up a pressure when enclosed in a tank. Modern cars have to avoid the emission of fuel vapor into the environment.

What does it mean when your gas tank hisses?

If conditions are right, the pressure will build inside the tank during testing and the computer and may vent that pressure causing a hissing sound. Look to see if your Check Engine Light is on. That may indicate that there is a leak in the evaporative emissions system that is causing the hissing sound.

Should my fuel tank be pressurized?

The fuel tank is supposed to be pressurized so that gasoline vapors can be controlled and captured, rather than released into the atmosphere.

How do you fix a fuel vapor lock?

Once the fuel system has cooled, you can help eliminate any vapor left in the fuel system by first pressing the accelerator pedal slightly (do not press it to the floor) while cranking the engine. Once the engine starts, hold the accelerator pedal down until the vehicle runs smoothly, indicating the vapor lock is gone.

What are symptoms of vapor lock?

Vapor lock causes:
  • Loss of fuel pressure (and flow)
  • Loss of power.
  • Stalling.
  • Difficulty restarting the engine.

What causes airlock in diesel engine?

In general, it’s caused by air being able to leak back into the top end of the fuel system after the engine is switched off. Then the vehicle will only start and run for a few seconds using a small amount of fuel that might still be in the injector pump.

Will an airlock clear itself?

Airlocks do sometimes fix themselves, but it isn’t a risk worth taking. Airlocks occur when air becomes trapped in the hot water or central heating system. Vapour becomes caught in a high point of the pipework because the gas is less dense than the water in the system.

How do you clear an airlock in a car?

What is the effect of air lock in the fuel system?

A vapor lock being drawn into the fuel pump could disrupt the fuel pressure long enough for the float chamber in the carburetor to partially or completely drain, causing fuel starvation in the engine.

How does a pump get air locked?

The pump expels liquid at a high pressure; however, the area of the impeller eye maintains a lower pressure. This difference causes the air bubbles within the froth to build up and “lock” near the pump entrance. Airlock normally reduces flow and production.
