What make and model? Usually I would disconnect the fuel line to the carb and have a helper crank the engine as I hold the fuel line in a jar to catch fuel. No fuel = bad fuel pump or leak in line between tank and pump sucking in air.

Drain gas out gas tank


Disconnect the hose from the gas tank under the car nearest the ground and drain it into gas cans. Or sell it on Craigslist with the provision that the person needs to retrieve it out of the tank at a discounted price. Don't smoke near it when trying these options and turn off all cell phones!

I can't get gas to go in my bmw 323i convertible, help? The gas cap is very hard to get off now and the pump won't suction on when I try to put gas in.


1. Unlock the gas cap. Slip the key into the slot on the center of the cap with the teeth toward the outer circle. 2. Turn the key clockwise. The lock cylinder gives and allows the key to move. 3. Turn the gas cap counterclockwise. Unscrew the cap...------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Won't start its like its not getting gas. I can turn the key and pump on the gas it will rev up and shut off. I thought it was the fuel pump so I changed it and that didn't solve the problem what else can...


maybe its bad gas, or an idle issue. you shouldnt have to pump the gas when you start that can actually lead to flooding the engine with gas. Turn the key on and wait about 30 secs before cranking this will ensure your getting proper amount of gas to injector lines. It may take a bit to get rid of gas in there but keep doing it until it starts properly. Also note in doing this do not continuously crank it as the starter and solenoid will fry. Also if you fear there is no gas going to engine look for a gas line bleeder valve. Looks like a tire valve head and usually is covered with a black plastic lid. If you push it in and gas squirts out then your getting gas to engine. If you release all gas and turn the key on and test gas line again and no gas comes out then its what is called a dry start, aka no gas getting to motor. Hence failure of fuel filter or fuel pump. Or a general clog in gas line.

Some one played a bad joke on me they put antifrezee in my gas tank and what to do to get out


Take to a garage and you will soon find out that "bad joke" is the wrong name for this. All gas must be removed and gas tank dropped and cleaned. you can only hope that that will fix it. Fuel pump, line and injectors may also need attention.

Can't start 1990 nissan maxima. it's like it's not getting gas although I can smell gas


Thats because your engine is flushed with gas and not enough air from cranking the engine so much. If you smell gas, then the car is getting gas. Gas is not your problem. It might be your starter or check your ignition system such as spark plug, etc.....
