Now either way you do this ALL the gas is not going to be out of your take but most of it will.
There are two ways
1. pick up a siphon at autozone or a similar store, and follow the instructions that come with.

2. the other way is find your fuel filter, and disconnect the ingoing fuel line connected to it. Figure out where you are going to drain the gas, then turn your ignition on and off until fuel stops coming out

2001 crystler town & country fuel pump


The Fuel pump is in the tank. The only thing I disagree with in emissionwiz post is whether to drain the tank or not. Chrysler started putting drains on the tanks in 2000 to make this easier when they went to a plastic fuel tank. I would drain the tank from the drain, disconnect the wiring then drop the tank to replace the pump. This all assumes that you verified that the fuse in the interior panel is not blown and the fuel pump relay in the power distribution box under the hood is still good.

My 1998 Jeep Cherokee seems to loss power everytime I start it. After just 2-3 seconds, the engine shuts off. I got the vehicle from an impounding area and it has not been used for more than three (3)...


Since is sat so long, whatever fuel was in the tank has probably gone "sour". Old gasoline gets an unpleasant "varnish" smell to it. The only certain way to remove any bad fuel is to drain the tank, and by all means change the fuel filter again.
Another thing that happens when a vehicle sits a very long time is that condensation in the tank causes water in the fuel. One or two cans of "dry gas" along with a full tank of fresh gas can often take care of this.
The easiest way to drain the fuel tank is by disconnecting the fuel line under the hood, connecting a hose to it, place the hose in a gasoline can, and turn the key two clicks to "ON" (NOT START!) so the fuel pump does the work for you.

The tank is almost full, but no matter how i put the hose in I can't get it to go down far enough to syphon the gas out


Hi, there are baffles in the filler pipe designed to prevent siphoning. If you need to drain the tank, I would disconnect the filter and use the fuel pump to drain it.

Easiest way to enstall a fuel pump


There really isn't an easy way to change the fuel pump. The gas tank has to be removed. Draining the gas out of the tank will help in reinstalling the tank. A floor jacket is helpful.

How do I drain the fuel out of my 2000 VW Bettle


The easiest way to drain the fuel is to siphon the fuel from the tank through a small polypropylene hose inserted down the filler port. Be careful to push the metallic flap aside when inserting and removing the siphon hose, a small screwdriver with a large handle should work fine (so you can't drop the screwdriver into the gast tank). The only other way will be to drop the gas tank, but they recommend siphoning the gas out before you actually remove the gas tank straps. You will also need to disconnect the battery cables before you drop the tank to avoid any sparks from the wire connections.

How to rmove fuel from fuel tank of 2000 chevy express van?


Some fuel tanks have a drain **** that will allow you to drain all of the gas neatly. If you have a drain ****, it will be located at the lowest point on the tank. Loosen the valve and allow the gas to completely drain.
If your tank has no drain ****, you'll have to drain it by removing one of the fuel lines. The rubber hose that exits the tank at its lowest point will drain the tank fully. It will either be connected to an electric fuel pump, fuel filter, or to a hard fuel line that goes to the front of the car. Loosen the clamp on the end of the line that connects to the gas tank. Pull the hose off and allow the gas to run out of the tank into your container until it is drained completely.

I've got bad gas and need to know the easiest way to drain the tank or otherwise fix the problem.


The tank will have to be removed from the vehicle and completely dried out.Gas tanks no longer have drain plugs as they did 50 years ago.Remove the fuel pump from the top of the tank,and thoroughly clean the tank with brake cleaner and compressed air and let air dry for awhile.The fuel pump and filter will need to be replaced with new,and after all the reinstallation,the fuel line must be disconnected at the engine,and the line flushed with new,clean gasoline as well as the return fuel line.Spark plugs will have to be replaced also.
