Hi marietjieh00,
Most modern cars don't have a drain plug in the fuel tank.
I assume it is petrol and fuel injected. Usually there is a pressure pump under the car on the fuel line or a fuel filter. disconnect the fuel line, and the fuel should drain out. If there is some left in the tank, you can turn the ignition switch to the on position, and it should activate the pump to pump the remaining fuel from the tank. You may have to do this several times.
Make sure you have a container large enough to hold the fuel, and remove it carefully, as it is highly combustible

I have. Honda Es 1985 big red it runs good the natural life goes out and it won't run when it cools down it all strata working again

Check fuel filter and gas cap. If the gas cap vent is plugged, the fuel use creates a vacuum in the tank until it can't pull anymore fuel.

2003 Mazda mpv fuel filter location

Fuel filter's anymore are located on the fuel pump, INSIDE, the gas tank. You'd have to drop the gas tank to get at it. The first gen MPV had an interior door that let you service the pump if needed. If you suspect debris in the tank one way would be to not fill up with gas then when really low, drain the tank. If you suspect water in the tank just use dry gas additive. Good luck!

I have a 1988 Volvo 780 and it won't start anymore..occasionally, it used to turn off randomly while driving, but would always start back up afterwards, now I can't get it to turn over. Not sure what...

Start with your battery connections and load test your battery. Then run a Fuel Pressure test, you may need to replace the in-tank fuel pump and filters.

Why does it take so many tries to start my 1995 dodge neon

you need to know how far you have driven in that period of time as many people don`t realize how far they have driven it could be that it needs the plugs replaced again.have you changed the fuel filter,air filter,how is the fuel pressure,test by using a may have a tps sensor not working properly, even if the fuel system is dirty can cause this.the fuel system needs to be cleaned which cleans the injectors and the back of the valves for better starting as dirty build up actually soaks the fuel until it can`t absorb anymore and the fuel enters the combustion chamber.

1999 pontiac grand am fuel gauge is not working properly. What do I need to do to get this fix? The fuel goes to half tank, full tank and no fuel.

Sounds like the floater in the fuel tank can't move freely anymore. This requires the fuel tank to be taken out - removing the suction pipe with floater. Cleaning might help, but better to mount a newer one (used or new).

My fuel guage on the instrument cluster doesnt work anymore?

Fuel sensor inside the tank is the problem. Usually to fix this problem you need to take the fuel tank down and replace the whole fuel pump assembly.

Put new fuel pump in 1991 pontiac 6000, when u run it at high speed it shuts down like it ran out of fuel

Try replacing the fuel filter they get ignored anymore. It sounds to me like you might need a new ignition module though.

Hi my nissan maxima has problem

The oxygen sensors in the exhaust pipe are saying the fuel/air ratio is too lean. This commonly happens when the computer in the car reached it's limit putting out the most fuel. Therefore, the mix ratio is still lean.
The possible problem maybe:
The fuel pump not puting out enough pressure.
The fuel filter maybe clogged
The fuel injector maybe clogged or needs to be cleaned.

Were there anymore trouble codes besides the two from Autozone?
