ok i pretty popular here for topic problems ugh

well now i not sure but i think fuel filter but not sure where it is on this van

but driving my mom to work and home engjine keeps starving for gas i put in neutral or park i can reve it high and she wont stall, well a few times no it wouldnt start and it would stall so i did add 20 litres of gas but i only maybe drove 20kms round trip and couldnt nearly get home spent 30 min driving 1 km to my place

so i wanna know if thats the fuel filter or pump having issues or if there is a filter in the tank if that be a problem and where would the fuel filter be located on the van i havent had a chance to look cuz i was fixing my moms other van

There is a screen in the tank but that's hardly ever an issue. The pump is bolted to the passenger side of the timing chain cover. The fuel filter is in-line between the pump and the carburetor.

You're kidding right? I've never seen high shipping costs or duty charges when I've ordered stuff from Canada. Heck, Canada isn't much more than our 51st state anyway. :cwm27:
