Got my Sedona, no issues yet apart from the local car wash doing a slap dash job when paid £50 for a full valet...the more i deal with people in the this life the more i realise it really is a case of, "If you want a job done properly...."

Anyway, i have seen mention of "priming the fuel filter" "giving it a couple of pumps", etc in response to previous question with people having starting issues. I want to know how one would do this manually...is it an under the bonnet job?

Hi Mate

Its under the bonnet at the drivers side(UK) it looks like a rubber bulb type thing thats what you use to prime the filter

Hi. Welcome. The fuel filter on my Sedona is part of the unit the fuel filter screws to. There is a round top that you press to prime whilst the small 'wing nut' is open. When you see fuel comoing out close the 'wing nut'. Under bonnetL/H/side,as you look at car from front, UK. I will be posting PICS on how to change turbo and water pipes...these include where the fuel filter is.

Steve he has the newer kind with the rubber bulb instead of the spring loaded top on the filter

yup...took me a few moments longer to find it. Like the pump on a sphygmomanometer.

Thanks all.
