SOURCE: My 1991 Camaro

The backfire is only a symptom and is caused by unburned fuel entering the exhaust system while the engine is misfiring.
When it gets its 'groove' back, the returning spark ignites that fog that has made it into the exhaust system.

You do need to find the source since that backfiring is raising Cain with the catalytic convertor and possibly the muffler too.

Once it 'catches' again, does it seem to accelerate normally?
If not, it could be only a fuel filter that needs replacing.

If you don't have a code reader, it might be a good time to buy one.

The cost is very reasonable at $20 +S&H:

You can pay double if you really want to though-

SOURCE: Garaged for a year, my '94 Cadillac STS won't start. Battery good , won't fire.

A no start condition is usually caused by either no spark at the plugs,or no fuel at the engine,both can be checked for operation.A spark tester can be inserted into the end of a spark plug wire,crank the engine,and if there is available spark,the tester will verify this with light pulses.No light pulses,no spark.Fuel can be tested by installing a fuel pressure gauge on the schrader valve,on the fuel rail,on top of the engine.Again,crank the engine and check for adequate fuel pressure,around 50 psi or more.If a fuel preservative such as Sta Bil wasn't added and mixed into the gasoline before storage,the fuel is likely bad,oxidized,which can cause running problems.If the fuel is bad,it will smell bad,and could be the source of the problems.If this is determined to be the case,the fuel tank should be removed,drained and cleaned,and a new fuel pump and filter installed.Good luck.

SOURCE: I want to drain my gas tank because it has 6 year gas in it.

If you remove the line just prior to the carberator or the fuel injection line then turn the key on you should get a flow of gas.

Any time you are working with open fuel and fumes it is dangerous so make sure the area you are working in is well ventilated.

Car has been sitting Need to run.

The old gas will cause hard starting for sure as it is 15 years old but if you don't have very much in the tank you can mix in some new gas.

1987 corvette with 26000 mile always garage kept from birth. Start once a week always starts inless than half a crank. But after ran down road for while and shut off takes 5-7 revolutions to fire. Almost...

Thee new fuels today go bad after around 3 weeks because of the ethonol content. Put a can of Sea Foam in the gas tank see if that helps clean it out. Best bet is to drain the tank put new fuel in it with a can of Sea Foam, then give it a good long run until the tank is empty. Re fill the tank and put the correct amount of Stabil in the with the gas, this will stop the gas from turning into sugar and it works for years.
Good luck

Need to empty fuel tank of old gas

Not an easy task. You need to remove and disconnect the tank. Depending on how old the gas (more than 1-2 years) is it may be cheaper to replace the tank than trying to clean out the old gas residue which will repeatedly plug your lines and filters. After you remove the tank dump the gas into approved containers then dispose or properly. Check with your city or county officials they should be able to tell you where to dispose of toxic waste.

How do you drain the gas tank on a 94 Z28 camaro

You don't. There is no drain plug. If you are pulling it out to replace a fuel pump you just drop it with the fuel in it.

If you have to empty the tank you have to **** the gas out. Best to pick up a cheap hose that has a siphon built in it. make sure the tank you are putting the gas into is below the tank on the car. Start the fuel flowing and let gravity take over.

Hope this helps

1991 Jeep Wrangler has been sitting in a garage for 3 years. It starts and shuts right off. I spray ether in it and it starts then shuts back off again. It seems as though I am not getting fuel. What do...

im asuming it was running fine when it was garaged? if so, then the first thing you need to do is to drain the fuel tank and flush the fuel lines. when gas gets old, it simply wont ignite. and over that time, it thickens into almost a syrup. so you need to drain and clean the fuel tank, fuel lines, and replace the fuel filter. im not sure if that year jeep is carbureted or fuel injected, but if it has a carb., then that will definitely need to be cleaned. or for fuel injection, use a good fuel injector cleaner mixed with your new gas. once it starts, it wlil run a bit rough, but once the old fuel gets burned out of the system, it should gradually improve.

Camaro fuel pump

The fuel pump is in the gas tank. To replace it you need to drain most of the fuel out of the tank and remove the tank from the car. The car needs to be lifted up in the air enough to slide the tank from under the car. There is a metal ring on the top of the tank and it needs to be removed jently with a screw driver and a small hammer. This part (fuel sending unit) is worth lots of money so do not damage it. The pump is in the tank and will come out when the metal retaining ring/ fuel sending unit is removed. Install the new pump the same way the old one came out and reverse these steps for installation.
It may be possible to make the pump work for a short while if you hit the bottom of the fuel tank in the middle with a hammer.
