My children put water into fuel tank of my vx commodore without my knowledge tried starting it numerous times is that bad,fixable if so how ?

No need to worry unduly. It is an expensive nuisance but probably not terminal.

The filter gauze protecting the fuel pump inlet (if fitted) is so fine water will not readily pass through it so hopefully little water will have entered the fuel injection system. Checking the fuel filter will confirm this or indicate the entire fuel system needs drying out. This would be a process of dismantling and drying with compressed air and applied warmth and at the worst the injectors might (only might) need specialist attention but hopefully the water is confined to the fuel tank.

The tank will need draining and drying and the pump removing from it's housing to be thoroughly dried before refilling with fresh fuel. In case of lingering droplets of water adding an emulsifier such as Wynns drifuel is advisable.

I expect the kids thought they were helping so please don't be too hard on them...

Had some gas in a can, so i poured maybe a gallon of it in my tank to make it to station. then found out it was diesel fuel. i only drove it a block and noticed it tryin 2 boggle out on me so i parked it....

Diesel should not hurt your car as long as you did not put to much in your tank. I would recommend that you buy a good bottle of octane booster dump it in your tank then fill it up with a high octane full like 91 octane. That should make up for the difference. Your car may smoke a little bit until all of the diesel is out of your system but it should be fine after that. I hope this helps and if you have any other questions please feel free to ask.

First of all, If you recently bought gas from a place you've never been to before, drain out the old gas, and put in a fresh tank from somewhere you trust. You may have water in the tank. After that, if that doesn't solve the problem, or you trust the place you bought from, go ahead and check all your external gas filters. If that doesn't solve it, I think that's when you're right: It's either the fuel pump, or the fuel filter, and in modern vehicles, both are in the gas tank, and both are very difficult to get at.

Gas in tank/line - nissan maxima 98. still wont start. There are two lines. One with an arrow pointing to the engine the other I suppose is the return. I seem to only get anything from the line to te...

if you are getting water out then I would drain all the gas/water out. Water is heavier then gas, so once you drain all the gas out I would put known good gas in, you may want to change the filter. First I would get all the bad gas out and put new gas in, take some wd40 spray it in the intake and get it til it will run on it own, once this is done I then would change the filter to be on the safe side. Hope this helped tim

Water in gas tank

I would get some fresh gas, about 2 gallons in the tank, a couple cans of dry gas, to soak up the water, and get that thing fired up and drive it till it is empty. Then put in some fresh gas, and another can of dry gas, by then , you should have a nice clean engine and a clean tank. If you have to pull the air horn off and squirt some fuel into the throttle, do it, just to get it going. Once it starts, don't let it quit if you can help it, keep revving it and drive it. It will sput and cough bu it should be ok. The fuel pump should be fine and the filter will clean itself out of the water. Hope this helps.

Where is the fuel pump on a 1995 eagle talon non turbo

1995-98 Vehicles
See Figures 7, 8, 9 and 10
On these vehicles, is possible to remove the fuel pump and/or gauge assembly by working through the access panel under the rear seat cushion instead of having to lower or remove the fuel tank.
  1. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure, as outlined earlier in this section, but keep the rear seat cushion off and the connector(s) detached.
  2. If not already done, remove the protector.
  3. Disconnect the fuel pump hoses and connectors, then remove the fuel pump from the vehicle.

0900c152800ad8d1.jpg Fig. 7: The fuel pump is located under the rear seat cushion
To install:
  1. For FWD vehicles, place the fuel pump in the vehicle, aligning the packing positioning projections with the holes in the fuel pump.

0900c152800ad8d2.jpg Fig. 8: When installing the fuel pump, make sure the projections are properly aligned with the holes in the pump assembly
  1. For AWD vehicles, perform the following:
    1. Check to be sure the fuel tank packing is not damaged. If it is, it must be replaced.
    2. Place soapy water on the inside of the packing, then install the fuel pump assembly. Do NOT tilt the assembly during installation.
    3. Apply soapy water to the outside thread of the fuel tank. Use special tool MB994180 or an equivalent spanner wrench to tighten the cap to the specified torque. Make sure that the marks on the fuel tank and pump assembly are aligned.

  2. For AWD vehicles, make sure the packing is installed properly, as shown in the accompanying figure.

0900c152800ad8d3.jpg Fig. 9: On AWD vehicles, you need a spanner wrench to tighten the fuel pump assembly cap

WARNING Make sure the pump assembly does not turn together with the cap when tightening the cap. If the mating marks are not aligned, the position of the flat will not be correct and the fuel gauge indicator light and gauge will not work properly.

0900c152800ad8d4.jpg Fig. 10: The fuel pump packing must be properly installed for sealing purposes
  1. For AWD vehicles, check for leaks as follows:
    1. Apply soapy water to the circumference of the cap.
    2. Choke the vapor hose and main hose, apply and internal pressure of 1.5 psi (10 kPa) or less from the return hose and make sure no bubbles form in the soapy water.

  2. Install the protector and attach the fuel pump electrical connector.
  3. Install the rear seat cushion.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.

Hope this help (remember comment and rated this).
