Assuming you have the right hose and not the return hose, it sounds like you either have an empty tank or a clogged pickup screen. You can temporarily clear the screen by blowing into the fuel line to the tank.

At the risk of sounding like a jerk, I offer this to the thread...

I would help you, IF reading your work was not so much effort. Notice how I only capitilize the letter that starts each sentance, and at other times with capitilization is required... It must take a ton of time to type like that. In Fact I
m Doing It Right Now, And Really Dont See How Someone Could Do This Without Realizing How Much Extra Work It Is.... That Pisses Me Off...


So if you restate your question, you MAY get more helpfull responces, and less like mine

In my logic, this would blow the offending particales back into the tank... Clearly a very temporary option. Possiably an alge infestation (which is apparetnly a real treat)

But For God Sakes Dont Type Like This

I don't know if the 300d is anything like the 300e. But if it is, find the fuel pumps, under a plastic shield that is beneath the rear passenger seat (so as not to confuse you, the pumps are under the car.) You can disconnect the fuel feed before the pumps.

However, you will want to rig up some type of clamp and clamp off the line before disconnecting the hose. I used two short pieces of doweling attached together with elastic on one side and used vice grips for the clamping action. This worked great because as I wanted to increase or decrease flow, all I had to do was turn the screw on the vice grips.

Good Luck
