How to replace the fuel filter and pump in Dacia Duster 2.0l

According to Renault-Nissan, the fuel filter and pump are capable of working throughout the life of the engine. In fact, with the quality of gasoline sold at our gas stations, Duster gasoline pump repair, replacement or preventive maintenance is done at least once every 40-60 thousand kilometers. Here’s how to check the work of the pump and, if necessary, to carry out the replacement with their own hands.

Signs of Duster fuel pump failure

It may be necessary to change the fuel pump on the gasoline Duster at any time, as soon as it appears:

  • popping in the exhaust pipe;
  • jerking of the car in motion, if the transmission and automatic transmission are in full working order;
  • noticeable loss of power;
  • engine does not start at all.

Before removing the gasoline pump, it is worth checking the condition of the fuel filter. On the Duster, the filter is installed under the hood and usually lasts about 100 thousand miles. To work with the fuel filter and the pump it is necessary to depressurize the fuel system. It is done as follows.

Depressurize the Renault Duster petrol system

  1. Remove the second row of seats (the cushion can be installed vertically). There is a beautiful view of the fuel tank hatch cover. The cover is unscrewed with a flat screwdriver, under it is the gasoline pump, secured by a pressure ring.

We already got to the gas pump when we depressurized it, so we just have to take it out of the tank.

Removing the fuel module assembly

The pressure ring holds the gasoline pump, firmly holding it without any backlash. Unscrew the ring counterclockwise (due to the design of the pressure ring, it is advisable to use an arc-shaped tool to press this ring in two points, which will facilitate the task).
