    how to take out fuel pump and filter for 2002 virage txi

    I tried checking the psi on my return line and i get 0. i dont know if its because its not turing on or because its not getting enough fuel.

    i dont see how i would get to the top of the fuel tank to access the fuel filter or fuel pump.

    Please help.

    Thanks.

    I hope your here kk47

    You need to remove the front mounting bolt for the fuel tank. Disconnect the various hoses and connectors, remove the mounting straps, and slide the tank forward.

    i did what you said(k447). i grounded the brown wire off the fuel pump and it ran, but i still had 0 pressure. i clamped the return line and i had 30 psi. so now i'm in the process of taking out the fuel tank.

    Thanks a lot i dont know what i would do with out you.

    I saw the pictures for the last post but is there any picture that show the part that has fallen off and how to put it back together? I'll keep looking and i'm sure once i get it out i could figure out how to put it back together.

    Thanks again man.

    Additional photos have been added to the thread.

    Once you have it apart, it should make sense. It really isn't that hard to work on, once you get it out of the tank.

    The hardest part may well be putting those rubber straps back over the tank. Make sure all six strap ends are fully seated into those hull clips.

    Just work in a clean area, and make sure you don't let any grit or dirt get into the fuel tank. Make sure you wipe the pump body down.

    I used a vacuum cleaner first, then an air compressor to clean up all the plastic bits from drilling.

    When working on any part of any fuel system, cleanliness is key.

    got everything apart and now i know what happened. thanks for all your help k447. I hope once i get it back together it will solve my problem of having to hold down the start button but then again you said the start button does not force fuel so i might have more problems.

    We'll see!!!!!!!!

    What maximum pressure are you seeing with the return fuel line clamped off?

    Could your pressure gauge be a little inaccurate?

    18PSI sounds borderline...

    i have 28 psi when return line is clamped. i check the pressure gage on my other ski and it was at 20 and 30 when clamped.

    maybe my battery is just a little low to start it up. should i jump it off the other see or just a car battery?

    Do not jump any Polaris PWC with another battery or vehicle.

    The risk of electrical surges causing damage to electronic modules is significant.

    I would say your fuel pump is probably OK.

    When you have the chance, re-check the pressure when the engine is running in the water at WOT
    If it is still 20PSI or better, then it is fine.
