Question about Cars & Trucks
I f the tanks been cleaned, and you suspect water in the fuel, get a fuel pressure gauge hose, attach to the service port on the fuel rail. catch the contents carefully in a gas can. get help to turn the key to run. when the cans full, pour the contents into a jar and let separate. if there is now 2 liquids in the jar, the system needs further clean out and flush. a code scanner from the parts store can be rented borrowed or purchased depending on your circumstances. run the code check to see what parts you set codes for..clear the memory. clean or replace the plugs. put the car through a complete drive cycle. run the code check again. now, look up the pinpoint tests and test for any failed part. service repeating hard faults first. note any recurring driveability problem and incorporate into the diagnosis.
dont waste money on chemical fixes for these symptoms, physically remove the fuel and clean the system. if you have already bought and poured in, the sampling in the glass container should separate it out for you. then you will see what you have

You need to put a lot of ethanol in it to get rid of the water. Also the water might have caused problems with the cat or the oxy sensors. Ethanol comes in products like HEET.
