What do you do if you put bio diesal in a 2015 versa


if the engine is a petrol engine , you drain the tank and refill with petrol, you may have to bleed the fuel rail but basically it will run a bit rough to start with until all the diesel is flushed from the system then it will settle down
if it is a diesel engine and it is not performing on the bio diesel mix, drain the tank and replace the filter and refill with regular diesel
it may be a bit rough until the system is flushed
If it runs good just use the tank then refill with regular diesel

I put petrol in my diesel car


If you accidentally put petrol into your diesel car there is an unbelievably easy fix for it.
firstly get a paper coffee/tea cup(sold in most garages) fill it with any type of engine oil and add it to your diesel tank.(apply it in two half-cup measures and you will not spill it everywhere), then fill your tank with diesel. your engine might splutter a bit but the engine oil will compensate for the petrol and it should correct its self. Do this again the next time your tank will take a few gallon of diesel and it should be fine.

Nr 2;3;4 silinder liner +pisten seized no indication of overheating engine was overhaul 30000 km ago


You are right. Petrol was put in your tank causing your Pistons to over heat.Petrol does not have enough oil in it to lubricate the cylinders causing the motor to seize.Your lucky it didn't blow a hole in the Piston.This is a common problem especially when your old car was running on Petrol or If a friend borrows your car but usually they have a note on your dash or where the gas cap is. The engine will have to be over hauled or replaced with a used one. I hope this helps you out.

My car is using i lot off petrol why? and why is the petrol going to the engen in the oil how can that be?


it is not supposed to, they should remain separate , your petrol is just lying in your sump at this stage, check your pipes, oil is usually circulated in the engine and goes little anywhere else , your fuel goes from the tank , through the fuel filter to the carburetor or injectors , and into the pistons , the closest oil and petrol ever has to meet is the small drop of oil remaining in piston chamber before combustion ,

Hi i have an avensis verso d4d 2litre diesel 2003 its lacking bad on power


Mr Allan first thing you must do is to renew the fuel filter,check if there is any other filters and then if you still have any old fuel in tank drain it,fill it up with a clean diesel and my personal advice as an automotive engineer try what I do personally,ask from a petrol station if they sell- " TWO STROKE OIL " yes is the oil use in mixing with petrol for mopped motorcycles. Use 250ml in tank full of diesel ,-full tank to empty -before light comes on and re-use again 250ml for another full tank and continued for four times. It is also good to do this even for two times filling every two months,. Two Stroke Oil has the power to clean and lubricate the feeding system of a diesel engine also treats the fuel injectors even when you might hear them working rough. It is like a cough medicine. Try it and let me know.

I have put unleaded petrol in my tuscon crtd cdx diesel oops. how do i drain my tank is there a bung in the bottom if so where has i can't see it or do you advise me to get profess drained. also could you...


there will be a bung in the bottom of the tank but i advise you get it done professionally, because they'll have to check and test alot of things as putting petrol in a diesel engine can cause alot of damage internally. you probably shouldn't even drive it to a mechanics shop because the more you drive it the more damage it'll cause.

I mistakingly put some diesel in my petrol swift


You don't say how much diesel you put in or how much petrol was in tank in the first place. If the amount of diesel is less than 5 % of the total then you may try filling tank with petrol and keep topping up to dilute the diesel. The best fix would be to drain fuel tank completly and refill with petrol. If tank has a drainplug , this will be easy but if no drain plug you will have to remove tank from vehicle to empty it.

Ive put petrol in the oil tank


Just drain the oil, refill, and I think I'd run it to warm it up fully AFTER draining and refiling, and drain and refill again. You shouldn't drive it w/ gasoline in the oil, as it will thin out the oil and it won't lubricate as it should, and the extra half litre would be overfilled a bit, which would cause the oil to foam, which also would affect lubrication. countrycurt0
