if its petrol engine bang bottom of fuel tank while some one else cranks vehicle over if it starts good just pump jammed if it dont buzz to life and you cant hear fuel pump buzzing ceck for power to it if thats there replace pump. running out of fuel kills electric fuel pumps internally in petrol tanks.

SOURCE: 2005 Nissan Xterra gas gauge reads empty when full of gas.

Sending unit died. can be expencive to replace since most sending units are integral with the fuel pump now. lots of labor too. Better to use the trip odometer till you can afford a day without your car and a $600.00 +labor repair bill.

SOURCE: Nissan sentra fuel problem

I believe this is a manual fuel pump and you may have lost the prime, no fuel in hose to tank. If the hose from rear frame to tank has a break or hole, it will **** air and not fuel from tank. If this is not the case, possible clogged fuel hose, tubing, or pickup tube in tank assuming you have turned the engine over serveral times and there is enough fuel in tank. Some tanks do not pickup from very bottom because of water laying in bottom of tank from condensation.

It sounds like the float on the sending unit is sinking. Don't know what the float is made of, but over time, it will soak up gas and start to get heavy. This would cause your problem. I don't think it's the gauge, but if you want to test it, disconnect the wires at the tank. The gauge will either go to full or empty. If you ground the sending wire, the gauge should respond the opposite way it was. good luck

Draining fuel tank


the FSM book covers this. (ill do the full tank pull... as you never said the JOB!)
its siphoned to near empty. (use a hand pump for fuel , sold at all boat center)
do you need the FSM page quotes?
on some cars there is an anti-spill roll over check valve
at tank fill port making siphoning very hard.
my answers are USA cars, on this USA forum.... and swifts vary big time world wide..... dig?

quoted. (no smoking no open flames, outdoors best. no shop heaters of ANY KIND near)
"tank pull steps. (sure drained)
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Relieve the pressure from the fuel system. (in the FSM)
  3. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  4. Remove rear seat cushion.
  5. Disconnect connectors of fuel tank wire harness.
  6. Hoist vehicle.
  7. Disconnect fuel tank filler hose and breather hose from filler neck.
  8. As fuel tank has no drain plug, drain fuel tank by pumping fuel out through fuel tank filler or fuel tank inlet. Use hand operated pump to drain fuel tank.
    1. Disconnect fuel pipe joints and fuel hose from pipes. For quick joint, disconnect it as follows:
      • Remove mud, dust and/or foreign material between pipe and joint by blowing compressed air.
      • Unlock joint lock by inserting special tool (part No. 09919-47020) between pipe and joint.
      • Disconnect joint from pipe.
    2. Remove fuel tank from vehicle.

Have gasoline in the air tube all the way into my air filter housing


I would be checking the canister as it appears that it is full of fuel and not fumes. If you continually fill the tank to the cap it is very likely that the fuel has got into the canister when the tank is venting

Escort 55 D, wrong fuel in tank ,is there a drain plug or can I syphon the fuel out


Hello, If the D is for diesel, then you will have to siphon to fuel out of the tank until you make the fuel tank light enough to drop the tank. Then remove the tank, turn it upside down after removing the fuel pump. The gasoline that is in the tank by mistake at best could be used in a 2 cycle engine. For the most part it is junk fuel. Otherwise it can be used to start fires or clean tools.

Add a small amount of diesel to the tank and swish it around and dump that fuel as waste. Then try to immerse the fuelpump(if in tank) in diesel fuel to get out the lighter more explosive gasoline. Try blowing out the fuel that has reached the motor and have the fuel filters changed. When everything is together add only several gallons to prime the system before trying to start it.

If you suspect gasoline is in the injectors, they may have to be removed and cleaned too.

Now if you added Diesel to a car using gasoline, then it can be a little easier to fix. You can use the fuel pump in the tank to drain the tank via the fuel line coupler at the fuel filter. Remove the filter and turn on the key with a rubber line connected to the tank side of the fuel line. The fuel pump will drain the tank. It would be good to remove and clean the tank, but not necessary. The residual Diesel fuel will dilute over time.

If either fuel is mixed together there will be vapors. Ventilate and put down a rubber mat or blanket under the catch bucket to insulate it from sparks and static.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you. I want to add that sometimes Comprehensive car insurance may pay for this service. You should call your Insurance company and see if your insurance covers this.

You can use a siphon. Then put in as much regular gasoline as there was diesel and siphon it again. After that you can fill up with your usual fuel it should be fine.

Your best bet is to go to the auto part store and buy a gas tank siphon kit and siphon the gas out of your car.

well first of all, it's a good thing you're draining it, because there's rust in your gas tank. Second, you're going to have to siphon the gas out, and third, use a proper technique, because i doubt that gas is too tasty

Why do they tell you not to overfill gas tank


The actual reason is maximize your fuel mileage.
The engineering is as follows:
There are times when the fuel injectors shut off when you are driving, like going down a long hill. There is no need for the injectors to "work", as you are coasting without giving it any gas. But, the engine will stall out with no injector action. So, how does Toyota keep the engine running? From the gasoline FUMES in the fuel tank. There is a tube on top of the fuel tank whch siphons the fuel vapours...The vapours then are stored in something called a charcaol canister, in which the "charcoal" absorbs the fumes from the tank, and, when coasting, the injectors stop injecting, and the stored fumes are admitted into the intake manifold thru a valve controlled by the Electronic Control Unit, or ECU. The fumes are used by the engine, thusly maximizing your mileage, other than losing them by letting them escape out from under the fuel cap. Now, to answer your question: If the vehicle is "overfilled", there is no place for the fumes, other than in the top of the filler neck. And the siphon tube is on top of the tank. The ECU sees the overfill condition as a "blockage" in the fuel fume vent line (only fumes should be in this tube), and said "blockage" will transmit this to the ECU, thru a sensor, & turn on your check engine light. The overfill actually "lies" to the ECU, even though there is nothing wrong. Best thing to do: When filling the tank, stop after the handle clicks off.
I hope that I have explained this to your liking.
