fuel fuel fuel

Just installed a new fuel pump and lines and I rebuilt the fuel bowl. Now my fuel filter light comes on from time to time. I filled the fuel bowl with tranny fluid after the rebuilt would that turn on my fuel filter light? Also what am I supposed to check when that light comes on?


Just for aside,

My E-brake light also comes on at random and kills my cruise control. What would be the best place to start poking around?

Maybe it didn't like the more viscous tranny fluid if it was straight ATF? It usually means there is a folter restriction. Have you tried a different filter?

The e-brake light will come on due to:
1) The e-brake switch on the pedal assembly closing (or the wire grounding for some reason)
2) Low brake fluid level
3) Low vacuum (so check for vacuum leaks or even put a gauge on the system to if the vacuum level drops. You should get 17-24" Hg at idle).

Cheers!

Right on the money!! After a few days I no longer see the fuel filter light so I think it ran all the tranny fluid out, Also it was the e brake switch that was bad.
