Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Just took over the lease on a 2010 Lexus is250. Went to fill up with gas and it seemed full. In order to 'fill' with gas I had to stop and start and it took 15 min for 4 gallons. IF there is a blockage or an air pocket how do we fix it????

Check the filling tube (or hose) going to fuel tank for damage. Could be the "ball" just inside the tank where the filling tube is attached. Its there to prevent fuel from draining out of the tank in the event of a roll-over.
Tap on the tank in the area around the filling tube with a rubber mallet. This should "unstick" the ball. They do sometimes get stuck and wont let fuel into the tank.

SOURCE: Gas Tank Blockage

i had the exact same problem, turns out, there is a 2 lines going from the gas tank to where you put your gas in, one is for the gas to go in and one is for air to get out. on mine, there was a sliver seal from a bottle of heat that i had poured in during the winter. the seal was the exact size of the return air line and blocked it from air coming out. this forced the air to come out the gas part and splashed around a lot causing the pump to shut off, i bet there is a blockage in the line that goes from your nozzle to your tank. it is easy to take off, but it is very dirty

Well you troubleshooted the problem by yourself. When you put in gas it washed the filter off and your truck started. Your problem is just the fuel screen( or filter) located in the tank but you tank also needs to be flushed out to keep future occurances from happening. It is totally up to you. You can either just change the screen or change the fuel pump and it will come with a new screen. Price them both at the auto parts store and see the difference in price. It is recomended to let the professionals do this job just because of the easy to break fuel lines. But Whom ever diagnosed fuel pump and fuel filter did diagnosed it correctly. But most garages will not warrenty the job unless you change both the filter and the pump. WHEN YOU DO HAVE THE JOB DONE IT IS RECOMENDED TO HAVE LESS THAN A HALF OF A TANK OF FUEL BECAUSE WHAT EVER AMOUNT THAT IS IN THERE WILL BE REMOVED AND NEW FUEL PUT BACK IN. ALSO DONT LET THEM FILL IT UP FOR YOU UNTIL YOU KNOW THE AMOUNT THEY ARE GOING TO CHARGE YOU PER GALLON. YOU SHOULD NOT PAY FOR MORE THAT $150.00 FOR LABOR AND WHATEVER THE PART COST. Me myself as a shade tree mechanic. I usually charge $100.00 plus parts. Good luck

The trunk switch must be combined with some of the other components because it is not listed on the diagrams. If the issue is a fuse, there should be something else that is not working as well.

The first thing you want to check for is the brake signal,without this signal it will not crank,this is the easy one make sure you get brake light,the second is to have the starter tested by a direct method,this gives the indication of the health of the starter
