You have to drain the fuel tank and disconnect fuel lines and blow out with compressed air. The fuel pump is in the tank take it out and spray down with WD-40. If you run the car with unlead gas it will damage the motor.

Accidentally put unleaded fuel instead of diesel in 2013 D22 drove approx 10k

Drain the fuel out and flush the fuel lines and the filter. Failure to purge the unleaded fuel from the system can destroy the engine due to severe pre ignition.

Check for DPF in Volvo C30, S40, V50, C70 (diesel particulate filter, FAP, 2.0D...

Check if your Volvo C30/S40/V50/C70 has DPF (diesel particulate filter) / FAP (filtre ? particules) installed. Volvo is using this filter in cars with diesel engines like 1.6D, 2.0D, D2, D3, D4, D5 to reduce emission and meet Euro emission standards.
There are three ways to check your Volvo for DPF: by VIN number, with hidden menu and by checking ADM module under the hood.

What would make my truck misfire if my son put deisle in it

You're joking, right? First question... Why would your truck misfire if you put water, Jello or peanut butter in your gas tank? Answer: Because your truck wasn't designed or set up, to run properly on any of those as a fuel source! Second question... Is you 2005 Trailblazer designed or set up to run on diesel? If your answer is no, slap your son in the head, drain your fuel tank and flush all the diesel from the system. Replace it with the unleaded fuel it was designed to operate on and educate your son on fueling up your truck. Your truck should stop misfiring once all the diesel is gone. Good luck!

I put unleaded fuel into a diesel and after draining fuel car will not turn over

Won't turn over or won't start? If it won't start - chances are good the oil must be changed and the glow plugs looked at. Need more information on this - specifically, does the engine attempt to run at all? Any DTCs?

Volvo v50 wont start sometimes

Check if fuel lines don't have air bubbles.
If you have diesel, then also check glow plugs and throttle body air flaps.
Sometimes Central Electronic Module causes problems with start and other troubles (airbags, ESP, wipers) and usually you need to clean relays connectors.

Unleaded gas in a diesel fuel tank

do not worry about draining it, pour about 6 to 8 ounces of engine oil in it, and top it up with fresh fuel, it will be fine. The only way to drain the tank is to remove it and turn it over.
