Hi

This is not quite recommended, and to do a 100% job, you should really drain the tank, and refill with just diesel, and renew the fuel filter.

But if it is running acceptably, drive it gently, and keep refilling with diesel.

Good Luck !

Don´t forget to give me a FixYa rating please.

John.

Will a 2 litre vw Golf 2011 diesel fit a 1.6 diesel 2011 Golf


I wouldn't suggest it. It wouldn't be just an engine swap that you unplug and unbolt and and then reverse...thats not to say it can't be done with a lot of thinking and work and reprogramming that's usually for vw experts...your better off to keep looking at other wreckers for the exact motor

If i have a diesel engine and my tank is 80 litre and put 70 litre diesel and 10 litre petrol in my tank what will happen to my diesel engine than


That depends on the amount added and the engine, yours would be 7 parts diesel to 1 part gas. I do not have the different effects on engines using different ratios of deisel to gas, I suspect the richer the mix ratio of gas to deisel, the more noticable the reactions will be. First off there are two immediate impacts of diesel fuel mixed with gasoline: the octane is lowered and the fuel vaporization is reduced. The lowered octane may cause the engine to knock. Some engines have knock sensors and the electronic controls that will adjust the timing and other engine conditions to try to control the knock. If the knock remains significant it can damage the engine by causing metal fatigue eventually leading to failure of critical parts like pistons, connecting rods, heads. Some very old engines (e.g. 1950's tractors) can accomodate lower octane, but the ones found in recent autos are normally running close to the knock threashold. The reduced volotitility caused by the added diesel will cause hard starting and will probably result in some unburnt hydrocarbons remaining in the exhaust gas from the engine; these may be reacted in the catalytic convertor causing it to overheat. A modern electronic controlled emission system controls the oxygen level in the exhaust gas going to the convertor so the significant increase in hydrocarbons with controlled oxygen may save the convertor, but will likely result in unburnt hydrocarbons exiting the exhaust. This will result in a smell and air pollution. Gas will also damage deisel fuel pumps as well.

The fuel tank had about 10 litres of petrol and by mistake 20 litres of diesel was pumped into the tank.


hi,
need to find the fuel line going to the fuel rail on the engine, remove that, get a spare piece of hose and run it into a bucket and turn the ignition on and run it out of gas. If the computer will only allow a small amount of gas then you could over ride the fuel pump by finding the relay for it and jump the relay with a jumper wire. you may have to go to autozone.com and find the fuel pump wire/relay colors there, its free to sign up at autozone. if this is uncharted territory for you go back to autozone and study tank removal and drop the tank. have a fire extingusiher handy or the hose. if unsure take it in to your local mechanic. If you take it to the dealer then they will really let you have it..

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.

Do i need lock tool to change cam belt on a 03 grand vitara


I'd be first confirming whether you have a 1.6 litre Grand Vitara (petrol), or a 2 litre turbo diesel. The 2 litre petrol (straight 4 or V6) or 2.5 litre petrol engines are all chain drive.
If your engine is petrol then no lock tool is required (to hold the camshaft). Of course, there is a specific position that an engine should be rotated too before removing the belt from ANY engine.
If it's diesel, then although I'm unfamilar with that particular engine, the general requirement for diesel engines with high pressure injection pumps is "yes, you require a lock tool" to hold the injection pump pulley. As I think these are a common rail set-up, this requirement may not be necessary. Check with your Suzuki Dealer, or maybe someone else here will know more. A similar question may have already been asked and answered here too.

I have put 8 litres of diesel in my 2005 renault scenic i have topped it up with 25 litres of petrol and run it for about 20 miles so far will this be ok once the the tank is empty


The 8 liters of diesel mixed with the 25 liters will make the vehicle smoke a little but if you continue to dilute the diesel/petrol mixture with petrol as your tank level goes down you should have minimal problems. When the tank gets to half you should refill it with petrol for at least two times. The main two problems I could think of that would cause you any concern would be the fuel filter getting partially plugged and the injectors gumming up. By continuing to dilute the tank with petrol you should be okay because the filter and injectors will clean themselves up while you drive. Just make sure you do not take any short drives. Let the engine warm up to operating temperature until you have ran at least two complete tanks of petrol through it.
