What do you do if you put bio diesal in a 2015 versa


if the engine is a petrol engine , you drain the tank and refill with petrol, you may have to bleed the fuel rail but basically it will run a bit rough to start with until all the diesel is flushed from the system then it will settle down
if it is a diesel engine and it is not performing on the bio diesel mix, drain the tank and replace the filter and refill with regular diesel
it may be a bit rough until the system is flushed
If it runs good just use the tank then refill with regular diesel

Have a 2011 RR Sport Diesel. incorectly put 2 LTRS unleded fuel defore cut out activated.Used the reset tool provided & filled the tank with Diesel Intend on continually diluting on a regular topping...


You must drain and refill the fuel tank. Some of these systems use optical sesnors in the injection pump and can be damaged not to mention the damage to the pistons and valves. Great trucks. Drain the tank.

My chev 2500 deasal keeps stalling


how recently have you changed the fuel filters?have other people used the truck?have you tried a commercial diesel fuel additive(power service) to help eliminate the algae that can grow if unchecked,with a diesel it usually amounts to a fuel or air issue so start by checking these areas,don't forget the air filter needs changed at regular intervals and fuel filters are the last line of defense on a diesel vehicles and water and algae are the enemy.
hope this helps.

I went and put unleaded regular gas into my 2005 Volkswagen Jetta drove home and when I went to start car again, it will turn on for about 5-10 seconds and turns itself right back off!! PLEASE HELP!!


Are you sure you did not put diesel in by accident or E-85? The VW will run on regular gas(not recomended) but diesel or E-85 gas is Bad for it. The E-85 can clog up stuff. You will need to drain and flush the fuel system, a new pump might help and all filters as well. Sounds like you got E-85 or Diesel by mistake. If this is helpful, please leave feedback. Thanks, SP

Put diesel fuel in on accident pumped fuel out from fuel line in front of filter, filled up truck with regular fuel now runs bad and fuel pump is on continuous when running and pump ismaking loud noise


The diesel fuel is not a good lubricant for the pump and plugged the sock inside the tank replace the fuel pump and sock also pull spark plugs and clean I am sure it is running like ******* the diesel coats the plugs so they won't fire without being cleaned. Gas is much thinner than diesel and the gas lubricates the pump once the diesel washed off the bearings in the pump if most likely finished off a pump about to go anyway.17 years is a long time for new pump to last and in 92 they were not putting in the junk they are now in our fuels. If you need more help or want a price on the pump let me know.

WERE IS THE FUEL FILTER


A fuel filter is a filter in the fuel line that screens out dirt and rust particles from the fuel. They are normally made into cartridges containing a filter paper. They are found in most internal combustion engines.
Fuel filters serve a vital function in today's modern, tight-tolerance engine fuel systems. Unfiltered fuel may contain several kinds of contamination, for example paint chips and dirt that has been knocked into the tank while filling, or rust caused by moisture in a steel tank. If these substances are not removed before the fuel enters the system, they will cause rapid wear and failure of the fuel pump and injectors, due to the abrasive action of the particles on the high-precision components used in modern injection systems. Fuel filters also improve performance, as the fewer contaminants present in the fuel, the more efficiently it can be burnt.
Fuel filters need to be maintained at regular intervals. This is usually a case of simply disconnecting the filter from the fuel line and replacing it with a new one, although some specially designed filters can be cleaned and reused many times. If a filter is not replaced regularly it may become clogged with contaminants and cause a restriction in the fuel flow, causing an appreciable drop in engine performance as the engine struggles to draw enough fuel to continue running normally.
Some filters, especially found on diesel engines, are of a bowl-like design which collect water in the bottom (as water is more dense than diesel). The water can then be drained off by opening a valve in the bottom of the bowl and letting it run out, until the bowl contains only diesel. Many Fuel Filters contain a water sensor to signal to the ECU or directly to the driver (lamp on dashboard) if the water reach the warning level. It is especially undesirable for water to be drawn into a diesel engine fuel system, as the system relies on the diesel for lubrication of the moving parts, and if water gets into a moving part which requires constant lubrication (for example an injector valve), it will quickly cause overheating and unnecessary wear. This type of filter may also include a sensor, which will alert the operator when the filter needs to be drained. In the diesel fuel filter there is (usually) a fuel heater to avoid the paraffin (in case of lower temperature) inside the filtrating element which can stop the fuel flow to the engine.

Wate in Diesel Fuel


Yes, Diesel engines can tolerate a little water but alot of water (over a period of time) can damage cylinder walls, pistons, injectors, and the injection pump.
