Fuel question

If I have the fuel filter off would it still pump fuel through the lines and come out where the filter would have been connected or is it the other way around no pressure so fuel pump would not pump any fuel from the tank? Sent from my T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide using FF Mobile

The fuel pump would pump fuel to where you removed the filter.

The system retains some pressure for a period of time. Haven't done my Focus, but on my F150 I could remove the fuel pump fuse and start the engine until it stalled and crank it a couple of more times to minimize the fuel shower while changing the filter.

You should have fuel come out where the filter would be but only for about 1.5 to 3 sec after turning the key on then the fuel pump would shut off because of not seeing a crank cycle

Right but enough to see it dripping on the ground correct??

So before replacing fuel pump anything else I should check?
I've checked the fuse the relay is clicking so I assume that's good... when I turn the key to the on pos. I do hear some sort of humming for a sec don't sound like its coming from the tank tho. More like under the hood.

So you have the filter out and are turning the key right now?

If that is the case, yes fuel should be streaming out of the line.


What's the backstory on this?

Iminhell,

Here is a link to a post I made a while back the car has been sitting. I replaced Intake manifold recently but now back to square 1

Did a compression test results were:
101 100 107 100

So I pulled the fuel filter off to replace, which leads me to this post.

Sorry didn't realize I had that post on this site would of just asked question there.

Well I don't have fuel spitting on the ground either with the filter off.

push the button down.
it doesn't matter if it's working or not. by pushing it down you'll reset it and if it was the issue you'll spray lots of fuel now.
