If the weather is cold enough where you are at, the diesel fuel in the line, or the tank, is turning to gel. also in the fuel water seperator the water is probably stopping up in there. Try using a heater to warm the tank up before driving.

Would it do harm to any part of the engine on my peugeot 407 hdi if i put 4,gallons of kerosine mixed with 4 gallons of diesel ?

No your car will run fine on Kerosine or heating oil. Slightly ******* though as there is duty on diesel fuel and none on kerosine or heating oil, but people do it. Don't use agricultural or marine red diesel as that has a dye in it and they can take your vehicle.

3:1 gas/ diesel in 2011 kia what can I do to remove it?

This site may have all your answers:

Basically do NOT drive the car and have the gas tank drained or talk to a mechanic.

Accidentally putting diesel in a gas car If you know that you have accidentally put the wrong fuel in the car, then don't compound the mistake by driving the vehicle while trying to think about what to do. Instead, call your mechanic immediately. At this point, the damage isn't permanent. If you drive and continue to drive, at one point the vehicle will stop and you will still have to have it towed.

There are two things you can do to try to fix the damage:
1. Try to clean up the damage yourself - have the vehicle towed home if it's not there already, and get as much of the diesel fuel out. How? By siphon if you can or any other method that you have available. Once you have as much of the diesel out as you can, fill the tank with the correct unleaded fuel that you normally use. Try to start the vehicle. It could take several attempts but it will start and it will smoke - a lot. It will continue to smoke until the last dregs of the diesel make its way through the system. It might run a little rough until everything is cleaned out. How it runs will depend on the proportion of diesel fuel relative to gas left in the tank.

2. Alternatively, have your vehicle towed to where your mechanic is and have the fuel tank drained of all the diesel fuel by a profession. They are also likely to flush out the whole fuel system. If the diesel stays in there for too long (and who knows how long is too long for your particular vehicle), it could ruin the fuel pump, lines and injectors. It is also possible that the diesel could have gummed up the spark plugs and filters. If this is the case, they will probably need to be replaced. Getting a professional to do the job will cost you anywhere from $100 to $500 and possibly a little higher depending on the extent of the damage.

Hi , I have just replaced the fuel fiter on my VW Tansporter T4 TDI 2.5 diesel 2001. How do I bleed it? I can not see the fuel through the hoses as they are black..

Close the filter drain cock, remove the filter, fill the filter with fuel and put it back on. Now crank the engine to start at a faster speed and let it blubber till it smooths out and your good. If you\'ve been cranking on it already, hope not, then you have allowed air into your fuel system and you must bleed all the air out at the injector lines until there is fuel coming out of each line you\'ve got cracked open at each injector. It will take some time and a lot of cranking. But if you do it like I said to start with, it will start easily. I\'m an old timer and love diesel engines. Old school way is the only way.

Vehicle has VW Diesel engine. I need to clean the injectors from normal diesel use and the vehicle was not driven a lot in the last year. Cann't change the filter it's located in the fuel tank and it one...

You would be better off putting everclear alcohol in the system. Rubbing alcohol has no effect on the water content and may destroy the seals and gaskets in the fuel system. 100 percent ethanol. mixed in with the diesel.

First thing to try with any diesel that won't start is to do a diesel system bleed. This one should be before the HP fuel rail type so start by bleeding the lift pump, then the fuel filters, then the main injector pump to lines to the injectors and lastly the injectors. Good luck.

My 5.9 dodge cummins diesel won't start, I've replaced the fuel lift pump, and the fuel filter, turns over. But will not start?

Most likely you just have air in the lines.Crack them open one at a time and bleed them with the fuel pump off and on till you get fuel.If it fires dont hit the throttle let it sit and idle and close the line.Does it fire up with a small whif of starting fluid?

What to do when you put diesel in a 2001 toyota corolla

Yes, you must drain the tank. Running with diesel may damage the engine and the catalytic converter. The fuel line and filter should also be cleared of diesel.

This car has a cover over the fuel tank underneath, and the service manual I have shows no drain plug on the bottom of the tank, so it will have to be drained at the top by removing the fuel pump, or by disconnecting the fuel line at the engine and running the pump until it is dry.

You may wish to hand this job to a mechanic. Try a mobile mechanic van that comes to you so the car does not have to be towed.
