    mine doesnt misfire as such was in amd essex yesterday and we have come to the conclusion that the primer pump in the tank is letting fuel drain back into the tank its warm and the fuel has a bit more pressure everything is fine im going to try clamping the lines off tonight to see if that makes any differance the if its that figure a wat of puttying a non return valve in

    the guys at amd said clamp them both but the blue and black ones are return from the fuel filter ive been looking at installing a one way valve as close to the tank as possible which i think would solve said problem one way valves are about a tenner off the net a couple of bits of correct diameter fule pipe and a couple of jubilee clips and a male to male connector i reckon it should cost 30 max

    If you own enough vehicles with an electric fuel pump, eventually it's likely that your luck will run out and you'll find yourself with a vehicle that refuses to operate properly due to a lack of go-juice. Most modern vehicles place the pump in the tank where it can be kept cool with a constant bath of fuel, but this location isn't so ideal when it comes time to replace that troublesome component. Fortunately, the task usually isn't quite as daunting as it may first appear, and tackling this project yourself can save several hundred dollars.

    Fuel pumps can either fail outright, in which case the vehicle will simply refuse to run, or they will lose pressure over time, causing a slow and sometimes not easily noticed drop-off in performance and drivability. Increased fuel pump noise (it's the whine coming from the area of the tank) or longer cranking times are often signs that your fuel pump may not have much longer to go.
