Why cant i syphon gas out of 07' mitsubishi galant? Does this year and model have an anti-syphon ball?


Where are you siphoning it from? Under tank or from tank mouth? Under, not siphoning, it is clogged. From mouth, keep sucking hose til gas propel from it.

Need to know how to syphon gas out of my1993 Mitsubishi Diamante and hose gets stopped by something before reaching the gas tank. Bad gas was put in my car when the power went out due to tornados here in...


you can't syphon the gas out on these vehicles. They have a ball that is in the metal hose on the gas tank to keep any large object out of the tank. Your best bet would be to drop the tank, and take the fuel pump out and dump all the old fuel. Hope this helps, James Booth

I am trying to syphon gas from my 99 Cavalier with a fluid transfer pump.when I run the hose down the filler neck I meet resistance and try to pump only getting small sprays of gas.Do the '99 model's have...


Yes, virtually all cars have them these days. You will not get any fuel out of the filler cap. There are some places you might get access to the tank contents like the outlet to or from the pump, the rubber connector that connects the filler pipe to the tank or the fuel pump if it is mounted in the tank and is accessible under the back seat.

I accidentally put K-1 kerosene into my fuel tank. How do I drain the tank. I did start it up. It ran for a few seconds and stopped running.


You cannot drain gas tanks easily because they do not have a drain.It will unfortunatly either have to be removed or take the hose off the gas tank at the filler neck and syphon it out

there is a roll over ball blocking you if your vehicle was to roll over there is a ball that will close off filler neck trapping fuel for safety purposes under vehicle follow the filler neck down to tank beside the big filler neck hose should be a smaller hose remove that hose from tank and insert your syphon hose there this should work for you i assume you have determined that the uel pump is your problem and are trying to access the pump??

Change the fuel pump 1997 chevy fuel pump


the fuel pump resides within the gas tank and removal of the tank itself is required to reach it ...you will need some tools and a jack a 2x4 gas cans a syphon hose to syphon off most of the gas to make it easier a chisel a hammer a jack and jack stand for safety reasons and a bit of patience and mechanical ability /1st i would disconnect the battery + for safety syphon off as much gas as possible , raise the vehicle and use jack stand remove the drivers rear tire , use penetrating oil on the 2 bolts/nuts to the tank disconnect either the filler neck or at the hose and filler pipe but be careful not to allow dirt to get into the tank , loosen the 2 nuts /bolts and get the jack and 2x4 under the tank and remove the 2 nuts./bolts keeping the tank up by jack remove out the way the 2 straps and begin to lower the tank ..1/2 way down reach in and disconnect the power as well as the lines into the tank to allow you to getthe tank down without breaking the lines going in {this may be the hard part just a note }
once the lines are disconnected lower the tank and watch the filler neck while doing so ,once the tank is on the ground bring it out from under the vehicle and remove the retaining clip with the chisel counterclockwise to remove it careful not to bend or disturb the float the pump is now visable as well as the filter to it remove and replace it the way you removed it .........replacing it is the exact reversal of the procedure

2007 Saturn vue won't accept gas.


There is an anti-syphon screen in the filler neck of the gas tank. They do not have very large openings and the slightest debris will act like it is blocked. EIther have the screen replaced or completely removed, or don't put gas nozzle completely in the hole
