Fits Airtex pump

Comments about Airtex Fuel Strainer:

Real pain to get this on, still have an indention in my finger but I suppose it shouldn't fit loose. When installing make sure you get it pushed on completely and even on all sides. Kinda a cloth material, seems like it should be durable.

          Comments about Airtex Fuel Strainer:

          This part is made by the same manufacturer as the fuel pump I used so you would think it would fit easily. Wrong. I played heck trying to get it slipped onto the end of the pump. You would think there would be some kind of lock up but no, you just push like heck and hope it stays on!

            Comments about Airtex Fuel Strainer:

            Installed in a 1991 S10 4.3 liter 4x4 pickup, onto an Airtex fuel pump. Strainer fit and finish seems ok. I have used Airtex fuel pumps in the past and they do not last. I replaced them with Bosch pumps. I have a stack of sparsely used Airtex strainers but bought a new one because I intend to use the warranty to replace this one instead of eating the cost. I went with Airtex only because Bosch is not available at Advance and I needed to get back on the road. Recommend the pump and strainer to be the same brand for compatibility and warranty reasons.

                  A:

                  The fuel filter is usually located near to the fuel line somewhere between the fuel tank and the carburetor. You can trace the fuel filter start from your carburetor, it usually mounted on the engine with bolt nut or mounted to the car body near to engine bay.

                  A:

                  On carburetor fuel system, the fuel filter is usually located near to the fuel line somewhere between the fuel tank and the carburetor. On fuel injected cars, the fuel filter normally mounted under the car in the fuel line between the fuel tank and the engine.

                Would this part cause my truck to stutter or flood because it will stop and I will have to wait before I can crank it up.

                  A:

                  A bad fuel strainer can cause an engine to hesitate, or stumble, engine stalling, a rough engine idle and a bad fuel filter completely stops fuel flow to a vehicle's engine, the vehicle will not start.
