I filled up with gas and my 95 Buick park avenue started to act like it was getting no gas after using about a fourth a tank.put different gas in and ran fine till used about fourth a tank again. Could it...

put in some gasline antifreez this will dissapate any water in the tank if this does not work start with a new fuel filter and then you might need a new fuel pump if problem gets worse as time goes by even a poorly sealing fuel cap can cause these kinds of problems

My 1999 Windstar ran out of gas and won't start. I changed fuses # 5, and 207; checked fuel injector, engaged. Put in 2 gallons gas. Need more gas?

If it ran out of gas you probably have an air lock in the system. You need to bleed the fuel lines to get rid of any air. You also may have picked up some sludge that had settled in bottom of the tank. Clean the fuel filter first and bleed any air out at the same time.

2001 Ford Lincoln Towncar, ran tank empty, put fuel in, car starts, engine races, then dies, sometimes races and backfires, changed fuel filter, verified fuel pump working, unhooked battery waited 10...

Here's a thought: do you think that some debris from the gas tank has plugged the gasline at the fuel tank. I suggest this because you stated that the fuel pump is still working and that you took all of the right steps beforehand and the Town Car still stalls and dies. Or, it is possible that some of the same debris managed to get through all of the filters and into the throttle body assembly and may have fouled up the fuel-injection system.

In the first case, you will have to drain the tank as best you can through the fuel filler, using a siphon, and then drop the tank. After the gas tank is dropped, you will have to access the interior and look closely for debris. In the second case, you will have to take the same steps as in the first case but you will have to add that you will have to clean the gasline all the way to the injectors just to be sure. You may even have to clean the individual injectors.

Remember, one thing, though, and that these specific cases are only two of the many possibilities that exist and I suggested them because they seem reasonable given the circumstances, especially since you ran the tank dry.

I have a Jonway Gator YY50qt-6, Ok, well I am assuming it is the gas, but It starts. When I go to drive it, it has NO power hardly. Can hardly pull me and when I attempt to go up a hill it stop completely....

most likely bad gas air filter will not have this effect but if the line has a leak could make this happen or the carb or injector is dirty also i would check the spark plugs and coil to make sure its sparking strong

I have a 93 Eagle Vision we ran out of gas now the car will turn over but is getting no fire

There may be an air lock in the fuel line or fuel pump.
Pour some fuel in the carby and start the engine. You may need to do this a few times to get the air lock out of your fuel line/pump.

1998 c1500 , code p300 , bad misfiring shortly after refueling , replaced plugs with no change , could it be bad gas ?? , also put in 3 bottles of injector cleaner that did not help

Probably water in the gas..., although its not common.. ... this problem should cure itself with your next tank of gas.. its not likely to be anything your check engine light on?? have you refilled the tank with gas yet?
Injector cleaner is ok, however they make a gasline product for up north to evaporate water out of the gas tank because the water will create ice or slush in the tank in cold weather..
Methyl Cloride is what I used to use in Canada, in the winter to evaporate water out of the tank.
And maybe you have a lot of water in the tank.... when you take off the fuel filter, you will be able to see water beading up (a clear gasline hose which does not come with your car) will tell you all sorts of stories about water and how clean your gas is (on the gas tank side of your filter)...

Help i think i put gas with water in tank

See if you can disconnect the fuel line on the fuel tank side of the fuel filter. Connect a rubber fuel hose to the line you just disconnected, and cycle the ignition switch (on and off) very quickly. Make sure the hose is not pointed at you or someone, because there will be fuel under pressure. Maybe have a clamp or vise grips on the endof the hose to control flow. Squirt some fuel into a glass jar, and look for water or sediment in the jar. If it's not clear gas, you'll need to pump out the tank until it is clear. You can try adding some gasline antifreeze, which will make water and gas mix, but it will take two or three bottles to take up two ounces of water. The fuel filter may be contaminated and will need to be replaced, too.

Sounds like it may be bad gas. At least it is the first place to look!

Get a good bottle of Gasline Antifreeze. Pour it in the Gas Tank. Bounce the car up and down a little to get it mixed up with the gas. Start it up and let it run for a little while. Adding ONE bottle of this to your gas every time you fill-up will also help clean your engine and, if you are lucky, get you a few more miles to the gallon. If this does not Fix the problem at least it didn't do any harm. I use it religiously.
It is what I have done for years...
