Part ID from pic 1997 EFI Hijet

Forum: 

i am trying to find the sodding fuel filter on this enigma of a bloody van!
i have followed the fuel line out of the carbs and straight under van in to tank. i cant see anything that resembles a fuel filter!

can anyone tell me what the heck this plastic empty pot is?
it sits under the passenger seat.
it has 2 small hoses in/out on the top. the hoses go in to some kind of switch looking thing.

Fuel filter...

Is this diagram any help? Will have a look for mine when I get a moment and feed back to you.



I seem to recall my mechanic telling me something about a charcoal filter in that canister in your photo. Something to do with excess fuel vapours? Don't really know what I'm talking about. The manual I have describes a charcoal canister in the maintenance section as part of the 'fuel evaporation and emission control device, to be checked every 24000 miles for clogging'. Also look for 'damage to piping and operation of check valve'(don't know what or where check valve is).

You seem to know more than me about mechanics Leopard. Sorry.

cheers for that. yep

cheers for that.
yep charcoal filter in the pic.
the 1st pic looks like its a LHDrive van as the canister is on the opposite side..

This is Brilliant !!

2004 Sirion 1300 4 Track. And I love it.
Don't like the new shape much.

I'm sorry to come in on this one as I have a Sirion (As most of you know)
But this is Brilliant and is just what this site is for.
It is a shame that some come on here - Get what they need and simply dissapear, when they could hopefully help others in the future.

Just seeing the fixes on here by some (Clearly) well versed guys is a real joy to see.

Shame the world isn't the same eh Smile

Er But a quick Comment --- Time for a little TLC Get that Rust sorted out !! Smile

Cheers, BobF.

2003 Sirion Rally 4. And I love it.

Fuel filter removal...

So Leopard...

Could you let us know how you got on with replacement? Looks like it's in a real difficult location to access. And yeah, the canister is on the other side. Must be the Euro version or somethin'...

I use photo bucket too. It's alright. Makes these forums a lot better with pictures to help with the fixes.

Yeah, a technical pics section would be great! But it's gotta be sub-sectioned by vehicle. I don't wanna go searching through loads of photos of your cars and 4x4's for Hi-Jet stuff. There doesn't seem to be as many of us Hi-Jets as there are of you car and 4x4 guys on here.

I will have a go later, photo editing etc is not my strong point.
My other difficulty is when the pics are too big to download, no idea how to down size them Scratch one-s head

photobucket can re-size them

photobucket can re-size them in the browser and lets you save the new size.

now that i know where the sod is.. i can buy a filter and get it done.
m8 of mine has ramps but TBH i doubt they will make it any easier to do. que dead, achy arms, dirt in eye/nose etc..! think i may wear safety goggles (i dont wear glasses) for this one!

First question: Is that a

First question: Is that a workshop manual for the 993cc engine I see there? If so, where on earth did you get it? I could really do with one for my own van, but keep finding ones for the 1.3.

And thanks guys, I was trying to work out where my fuel filter was as well. Smile
