Customer Question
I replaced the fuel filter...
I replaced the fuel filter on my 1994 Jag VDNP and now the car will not keep running under any load. It acts like a Vapor Lock. Any help?
Thanks, Tom

Prior to replacing the filter the Jag was very hard to start when cold . When it would start it had to warm up in order to start easy.

Hello and Welcome - My name s MIKE - Im happy to help...sorry to see you have had a wait.Given the car has stood so long, you could well have grub in the tank and in the lines - I would suggest that to start with - remove the filter again - and clean the lines back through with an air line... Then check the tank- remove the fuel gauge sender unit off the tank so that you can inspect inside the tank -for grub etc.. and to inc checking the pick up for the fuel as well...I would then suggest to clean the tank through regardless of what you see - as you cant see it all - wash with new fuel - and wash the lines through too.. Fit another new filter - check to be sure its sealing corrrectly - as that can be an issue too... with doing all the above, Im sure you will cure this.Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..~>>~~~ Meantime - Please do click on the "Exc / Ok rating" for me at this time.. "Thank you" in advance for that ... Note that you can get back to me anytime at all after doing the rating - it doesn't close you out -- Best Rgds, MIKE.
