    Thanks heaps I had a feeling it would just need a good cleanout and let some clean deisel run through it till it settles back in.

    So looks like the mechanic might miss out on the estimated $8000 he quoted her.

    Regards

    John

The motor is probably ok,empty the fuel tank, change the fuel filters,and drain the fuel lines.Engine may need to be run several miles before feeling normal.

Can 94 jetta run on leaded or unleaded petrol


It is best to run this engine on unleaded petrol. A high grade unleaded will give you extra performance and cause no damage. Leaded fuel was designed for cars made in the 60's to 80's that had used softer materials in their cylinder heads, leaded fuel pro-longed cylinder head life and reduced pre-ignition. Unleaded fuels are a cleaner, safer fuel to use.

What petrol should i use in my 1989 citi sport golf? Lead replacement or unleaded fuel? Thanks


Unleaded is recommended for this car but it is compatible with LRP since it has no catalytic converter.
I am asuming you are in South Africa? Have a look at the NAAMSA fuel compatibility database.

I mistakenly put a regular gas in it when its an UNLEADED FUEL only model an automatic 1994 geo tracker


Hi!!
At the pump, when it says Regular, it means Regular Unleaded Gasoline, the one that says Super, is Super Unleaded Gasoline, the only difference between the two is the octane rating. Both will work just fine on your vehicle.

I just bought it and need to no which gas is best for it out of the three types. and if i put regular gas in, will that break it!


when you open the gas flap to put gas in it should say "unleaded fuel only" or " premium unleaded fuel only". If it says premium only use premium. If it just says unleaded then you can use normal unleaded gas. But some stations have a lower grade unleaded gas. Use 88 octane or better.

I have a feeling you got a wholed of unleaded fuel or bad fuel
I drive a diesel box truck the station I always took it to the fuelman put unleaded in the diesal tanks and the truck just died it had to have the gas tank completed drained and cleaned out but also ask yourself how many miles are on it and when was last tune up and if you live in a cold climate I recommend a heater block plug

Ford focus 1.8 turbo deisel 1999.


do not understand you what you mean. assuming your car was ok before you changed f/filter you need to bleed the fuel system of air. esiest to do would be to loosen fuel line at the injectors and have assistant crank the engine while you observe for clear fuel leak without any air bubbles from fuel line.tighten fuel lines and start engine. might have to repeat a few times. good luck.

Unleaded fuel


Hi,

Am afraid nothing much you can do since you have to make do with what is locally available. However, a couple of things you can keep in mind:
1. Using leaded fuel with a car intended to use unleaded fuel would destroy your car's catalytic converter faster than normal wear and tear;
2. At times unleaded would be available, pls use as much as possible to help clean/remove the lead additive, tetraethyllead that will cover some soft engine parts with the lead-containing material;
3. you may have to tune your engine's timing to compensate for the leaded fuel.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
