How to clean a sugered tank on a Pontiac Sunfire year 2001.


Hi Delwin, There's only one way to clean a fuel tank and that's to pull it out and pull the fuel pump out of the tank as well because you're going to have to flush both the tank and pump, Also when you've finished installing the tank unhook the fuel line from injectors and turn your ignition on for a minute or two to flush the fuel line, Then replace fuel filter and connect the fuel line back up to injectors........ CHEERS..

Engine quits running like it runs out of gas?


Many small things can cause this...dirty fuel, water in tank, fuel pressure regulator going bad, air filter clogged, throttle body dirty, clogged catalytic converter. First try fuel injector gas tank and line cleaner...least costly...use 2 bottles of STP concentrated injector cleaner...also add a bottle of liquid heet...to absorb any excess water or sludge in tank...worst cause could be low fuel pressure caused by bad fuel pump...Hope this helps.

I might have sugar or water in gas.


This is a Saturn ion i do not think there is and i would not even start this car if you even think there may be sugar in the tank,Water can cause a little damage but not really as long as there is gas mixed but still do not run engine. sugar is bad!!. this will cause lots of damage. converter, injectors and cylinder wall damage.
You will need to drop tank and drain it out and then flush it out good. then drain fuel lines and replace the fuel filter. after you are done i would put in a bottle of dry gas and a fuel injector cleaner additive in the tank.
Note ' make sure to flush tank good, When fuel lines are removed the fuel in lines should drain back out of lines. the only problem is what is in the fuel rail and injectors, this is why i said to add injector cleaner and dry gas additive to help if there is any small amount of water left in tank. hope this helps ,good luck.

Every thing has been checked - new plugs, sensor, pump, injectors all working fine - but the car turns over just won't fire - Could bad gas cause this? - Car was running fine turned off at work came out 8...


I would suspect water in the gas, as the injection treatment wouldn't affect it like this. Take a sample of the gas from the test port on the fuel rail that's on the intake manifold. You should be able to see if there's water in the gas.

Sugar in gas tank


if it still starts then your ok.remove gas tank and dump fuel.clean out any sugar on bottom of tank.go throuh the fuel pump hole. use a water hose if needed then let it dry.fill up tank and just run it it will be ok. what sugar does to an engine [and never mind myth busters, they are wrong] ive seen it 4 times, someone in town was having fun with sugar in the tank.anyways with enough sugar in gas tank the sugar disolves in the fuel.then engine,especially the valve stems get hot and sugar becomes a molten goo on the parts,valves,pistons,cylinders,fuel injectors.only the hot parts seem to be effected. then when you turn the engine off the sugar cools and becomes hard like a piece of hard candie.the valve stems are now locked into valve guides and cannot open or close,it takes alot more driving to damage pistons and rings only a little sugar is injected on every intake stroke and its aimed right at the valve stem.one mile of driving i dought will cause problems. beware that if the sugar was poured it dry you will need to flush out the filler neck.if it was dry then very little got in the tank anyway,unless you put gas in it after sugar was added

The injectors may be showing bad because of the stuff that you put into the fuel tank. It will work itself through. If the system is showing lean fuel, replace the O2 sensor if it has over 100,000 miles on it. It directly controls the fuel/air mixture. Replace the fuel filter, don't try to clean it. If things still aren't running right, check the fuel pressure on the fuel rail located over the injectors at the the test port (which looks like a tire valve). The pressure should read around 40 PSI with the engine running. Any reading much lower suggests a worn fuel pump or a defective fuel pressure regulator. You can rent a kit that checks the pressure safely.

I have a 88 Fiero GT V6 that has sat for over a year without starting. I put in 5 gallons of gas, and used starting fluid. Starts, but only keeps running while fuel is poured into intake. I suspect water...


1) Running fuel pump to remove water from tank will likely not empty it all, but it might help. Will still be some liquid in bottom of tank.

2) More than likely, the gas has gummed up and is no good, While your draining of the tank will help, may still need to change the fuel filter and clean the injectors. The ability to keep engine running while pouring into the intake is a good sign, but mayfind that more parts need to be cleaned and replaced prior to solving the problem.

Fouled fuel injector


If that is truly what he told you then you need a second opinion. You can't foul a fuel injector. The computer won't tell you there is water in a cylinder, they aren't that good. Did he give you a print out of codes or anything? You could have some bad fuel in the tank since you said it gets worse when the fuel is low. Get a second opinion or look at your paperwork from the first guy and tell me what he really said.
