You don't need to remove the tank, just use a siphon hose to remove the gas into a gas can and get rid of it that way. You an get hose and a suction bulb from an auto parts store so you don't have to suck the gas up with your mouth. Then just put the proper ends into the tank and can, squeeze the bulb until gas is transferring, when the can is near full pull the hose from tank. This works perfectly every time.

How to drain gas tank on 1984 ford ltd crown victoria to remove the old gas?

If the old gas is bad you should remove the tank, dump the gas, and clean the inside of the tank. You may have to siphon the gas to get to the point where you can manage the tank to remove it.

The only proper way is to remove the gas tank completely and drain all the fuel out. The clean/dry out completely then re install it. Before putting fresh gas back into it.

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.

I need to know where the fuel pump is located on a 1994 eagle vision tsi

The fuel pump on your vehicle is located in the gas tank! I believe there is an access hole from the trunk. The hole has a plate over it. Remove the plate, and follow directions to remove pump.
Recommendation: Repair manuals are always the first "tool" to get when you're planning on working on your vehicle.

If this info was helpful, please post... Thanks...

Hi 1994 Seville SLS 4.6.fuel pump relay. Is there any way to test

no do not drill no holes wher the gas tank is.the bast way to drop it is to buy a syphon pump for $10 at walmart and get all the gas out. it is located on top of gas tank. to test a relay . take an old phone charger cut the end off that connects to phone wrap one wire to #86 and other to #85 on the relay terminals . it should click each time you connect the charger to terminals. if u have a multimeter use the continuity seting and check terminals 87 and 30 for continuity. it should only beep with power aplied to #86 and 85
