I put diesel in my F-150 unleaded gas tank and now it won't start.what do I do


I hope you've flushed the fuel tank after the mistake. There could still be diesel in the system, and diesel does not evaporate like gasoline. Diesel will, however, burn off if the engine is hot enough, so you need to get your engine started.
1 Fill your tank with the proper grade gasoline.
2 Try to get the gasoline through the system as far as possible - loosen the feed pipe as close to the carburettor or injector system as possible, switch on the ignition to get the fuel pump to displace any diesel in the pipe (remember to place the end of the pipe into a container so you don't spill the stuff on the floor). Otherwise just suck at the end of the pipe (not recommended) until the gas comes through.
3 Reattach the fuel pipe, then prime the engine with ethanol - also called Quick Start or similar.
Spray the Quick Start into the air intake while cranking the engine. It should start, even for just a few seconds. Repeat this a few times until the engine starts then let it run until the smoke from the exhaust stops. It is not the end of the world to have diesel in a gas tank, much, much worse is getting gasoline in a diesel tank!
This is a first aid remedy, hope it helps.

Audi a6 with 2.4 engine


Hello.

Can be alot of causes. Most common:

Egr clap closed - doesn t allow air intake - car also blows black smoke while cranking.

Fuel intake
- low pressure fuel pump - located inside the fuel tank - may be burnt
- high pressure fuel pump - engine bay - also may be burnt
- not enough fuel inside the tank
- fuel leaks before reaching injectors

etc

Hope it helps

Isuzu kb 280 dt got a fuel starvation problem after it stands for a few days, when i pump the prime pump on top of fuel filter the problem is gon.


It could either be a fuel pipe between your prime pump and injector pump that sucks air so your diesel flows back into your fuel tank. Or you need to replace the prime pump.There is a rubber diaphragm in the prime pump that gets worn. Unfortunately need to buy a new prime pump. A simple sollution is to fit a non return valve to your fuel line. That need to be connected between the prime pump and fuel tank. Hope it helps. Blessings

Where r the pollenfilters located on audi a6 2007 diesel ?


For 2007 Audi A6 depending on the engine type, there are two placements for cabin air filters:
1. The cabin air filters are placed on the right bottom side of the central console - passenger side, for 2007 Audi A6 Avant. Remove the carpet and behind the plastic cover are cabin filters. When installing new filters see for the correct position - air flow is indicated by an arrow. See pictures below:

Check first your car situation. If you will give me your e-mail address, I will send you photos with cabin filters replacement for 2007 Audi A6, because the www.fixya.com website is limited to 150 kb traffic.

I HAVE A AUDI A6 2.8 PETROL MANUAL. I RECENTLY RAN OUT OF PETROL AND NOW EVEN AFTER PUTTING 15 LITRES IN THE TANK IT STILL WONT START


try quick start to get it started. Alot of times when you run out of fuel the pump looses its prime. If you cant get it started you may of overheated the fuel pump by allowing it to run dry. Try smacking the gas tank hard a few times, this sometimes frees up the pump if its stuck.

A6 2.5 tdi possible injector pump failure or timing slip


I had the same sort of problem withmy A^ 2.5 TDI sports, after the dealer spending approx 1200 quid the problem was still there .
Does the waring light on the dash [glow plug symbol] show under hard acceleration?
After all the so called UK Bosch and Audi -VW experts diagnostics failed to find the fault including changing the sensor injector on NO2 cyl the problem was located by myself after giving up on so called experts { X being un known, spert being drip under pressure] all of the symptoms dissapeared when the fuel tank screen was removed and cleanned, the screen had a 2mm covering that looked like a rubber flap. Some 30,000 miles on all is perfect.
