same as most cars like this....
the FSM book covers that.
it says to use drain a hose on the filler hose. (most cars)
and use siphon hose, or hand pump to hand pump it dry.
the dealer has 2 ways, using their scan tool , they open the system and turn on the fuel pump until dry. (fuel hoses to a bucket? after depressurizing steps, in the FSM stated.)
or they use a PRO grade, fuel draining system. that does this.
at home, you have 2 choices. a hose with siphon hose bulb.
or hot wire the pump. (risky making sparks with fuel; no?)
In most cases you can't . The tank contains baffles that prevent the gas from sloshing around when the truck is moving. The same baffles will prevent a hose from betting to the bottom of the tank.. There are hand pumps you can use , but removing gas from a tank is extremely dangerous. Just remember gasoline explodes .
There are several ways to siphon liquids, and many different tools to use. I have used a lot of them and the worst way to try is sticking a garden hose down and getting a face full of fuel. It does not taste good. I have also tried a few pumps including battery powered ones (which work but are a bit expensive and unreliable). I tried a hand pump style from a local auto parts store and they are horrible. I won't mention the brand but the body is red and the tubes are clear and they fall apart in your hand (don't waste the money). SafetySiphon works on gravity and you don't have to worry about tasting fuel for months. You can get it on Amazon for around 11 bucks plus shipping. As far as the tranny, I am not sure what you mean about the best thing to do. I would price a rebuilt one compared to a new one and then decide if a salvage yard might be the better option. Only issue with that is however many miles on the salvage one will still be on it when you put it in there so 1 month or 12 months you never know how long it will last.
if you cannot get a hose down the filler tube to use as a siphon(anti theft fitted) and there is no drain plug in the tank then a suggestion I can make is to remove the fuel hose from the outlet side of the pump and connect a long hose from there to your fuel tank and turn the fuel pump on. It may take a while but it will work
Almost impossible to siphon gas from todays' cars. Only way I know to do it, is to take off the filler hose from the tank. Then you could get a siphon hose into the tank.
An alternative is to pull the fuel line apart at the fuel filter, and use a jumper wire in place of the fuel pump relay. When done right, the pump will turn on and a stream of gas will come out the line at the filter. The pump relay is under the hood in the power distribution box. As you are unfamiliar with cars, you will need someone to jumper the correct terminals where the relay plugs into. If you get the wrong terminal, you could fry the engine computer. What needs to be jumped is the power feed for the fuel pump on one terminal to the terminal which has the wire going to the fuel pump in the tank. The relay has either 4 or 5 terminals depending on design. An experienced person can figure out the relay terminals to bridge or jump, based on the schematic that is on the side of the relay.
As far as draining the fuel, there are two methods I have used. Hand operated pump with a long enough hose to reach in through the filler neck from the fuel door is one method, but requires a lengthy hose to get the job done. A second method that also works is pop the fuel lines off of the tank (you\'ll see it in the video) and attach a snug fitting siphon hose to one of the tank connection points on the fuel pump assembly. Using your pump, suck it dry into a safe container. You Will have gas spill from the lines when you disconnect them, be ready.
If the point you disconnect the pipe from the motor is higher than the top of the gas tank you will not have a leak. If you still want to drain the tank, you can get a hand siphon pump from a hardware or big box store and use it to siphon the gas out through the gas tank inlet. Drain into a certifiedgas can. No smoking.
