SOURCE: cant put much gas in tank w/o it coming back out

It souds like the air return line from the fuel filler pipe is plugged. When you fill up the car the air has to escape from the tank or else the fuel backs up into the filler neck shutting off the fuel nozzle. The air pipe is housed in the fuel filler pipe and lets the air escape as the fuel is going into the tank. Remove the filler neck and inspect air bypass line to see if it is kinked or plugged.

SOURCE: how do i drain the fuel tank on 2001 mazda mpv

Why was this suggested? Did water get in it or another substance? If it's just been sitting in a safe place and it runs fine u should be ok. Go get some gas treatment and put it in there.

SOURCE: fuel gauge on 1993 Dodge Dakota V8

Definitely the gauge can be changed, provided the float in the fuel tank is OK, i.e. no leaks. This float connects to a potentiometer which records the current flowing thru it and displays it in the gauge. So before replacing the gauge measure the current and match that against the quantity of fuel in the tank...............sodeep

SOURCE: Vt Holden Commodore stereo wiring diagram

head down to your local auto store and you will be able to pick up a wiring harness adaptor. you wire your stereo to this adaptor then you simply plug it into the wiring loom. no damage to the loom so if you ever need to reinstall the standard stereo its just an unplug and plug back in. its extremely simple and colour coded so there are no mistakes.

Black smoke comes from exaust when I start. Could it overfuel and how can I fix it if its a new carb on my 88 2e 12valve


assuning there is nothing major wrong, get some forte injector and use it as recommended. I once had a renault laguna diesel fail an MOT test, a roadworthiness test that is, on emissions...it was absolutely chucking out black smoke but the engine ran well. I put 2 bottles of injector cleaner in the half full tank and went out for an eighty mile drive revving the engine in the lower gears. I returned to the testing station an hour and a half later and the engine was running perfectly.
Alternatively, assuming the engine runs well but is just a little smokey, have it terracleaned, this will remove most of the carbon deposits from the engine/exhaust and should increase the life of your engine simultaneously improving fuel economy

After warm up engine runs ruff and loss of power


Injectors need cleaning if it is a diesel
There is a buold up of contaminants in your fuel system that needs to be cleaned out

If it is a petrol engine I would be very surprised

Just add a couple of treatments of injector cleaner to a full tank of fuel and go out for a high rev blast for an horor twom that should hopefully clean it.

My old renault laguna failed emissions so I PUT 2 bottles of forte injection cleaner and went out for a 70 mile blast, it was a diesel car. I returned to the testing station within 2 hours and the black smoke had ccleard and I got the pass certificate.

Car running ruff after tran put in.


black smoke is an indicator of too much fuel not burning in the combustion chamber, or too much carbon build up in the exhaust. you might have an injector problem, i.e. 2 much gas overloading somewhere.
