Air in fuel - Kimion
Going to be changing the fuel filter on my peugeot 306 '94 xsi in a few days. Learnt about releasing the pressure here (just leave it overnight), but need to know if it would be a problem getting air in the fuel lines?
I've been told that petrol injection doesnt like air in the fuel, so are there any precutions or after fitting remidies? Or can i just change the filter and not worry?
Thanks

Fit the new filter, then turn the ignition on without engaging the starter. You should be able to hear the fuel pump run for about 2 secs - this is to prime the system prior to starting. Repeat this procedure 2 or 3 times, leaving about 15 secs between each operation. The engine should then start but may splutter a bit for a few seconds. The fuel supply is like a ring-main, with constant supply and return to the tank, so any air is bled out very quickly.

Regards, Adam.
Whatever is rightly done, however humble, is noble.
