My 1991 chevy caprice is getting gas but not holding a start? The tank had 89 gas at the half and I filled it up with 87 did I cause any damage to my fuel system?

No you didn't hurt any thing,
You should have the Distributer cap, rotor,
and coil checked. to make sure you can get proper
spark.

It must turn on but with problems to accelrate. Try check back connector of the distributor. Sometimes it loose and car doesn't start. If injector spray gas but car do not keep working. last option: sincro chain must be elonged ( to discard try move water pump pulley with car totally off to both sides, if it swap to one side or other, then you need to change the sincronism chain

Looks like you have some water in gas. Check to see if you have a drain on your gas tank bottom. If so, since water settles to bottom, drain some gas out and hopefully you will be getting most of the water out. Otherwise you will simply have to "run it out" or have the station that sold you the gas take care of it.

Is it hard to drop my gas tank on my 1991 chevy caprice wagon?


It is really dirty,awkward,and the retaining strap bolts will be rusted a little or badly and have to be drilled or cut off. Not a nice job,until it is out., then it is interesting.

92 octane is wise to use once a month if you drive 1500 miles or more a month. Although I would use a half a tank of 92 octane when doing so. That blend has more additives which is great for larger engines such as a large V8

We just got a 1988 Porsche and filled with 1/2 tank, there was what seemed like overflow happening - Any idea what may be the problem.


fuel tank vent could be blocked by mud/pebbles etc, not letting the gas fumes escape while your adding fuel making it overflow, check underneath the car near the fuel tank .. something to start with..

Have had fuel pump on 1994 chevy caprice replaced four times in the last year and it jus went out again. what could be causing this pumps to fail.


Possible trash in fuel tank clogging up the pump. All the ethanol in gas these days also seams to do a lot of damage to components. May also be a electrical issue. Just a few possibilities, but a start.

Gas cap. pressurized air retentiion


Well, filling the tank will take up the space having to be pressureized. But if the cap is defective, The cap would be cheaper to replace and its needed anyway.

1991 Caprice stalled, turns over, but won't start.


Could be an air flow meter or faulty pressure relief valve.Try squeezing flexible fuel line before fuel rail with appropriate tool that wont damage the line and see if there is any improvement.obviously allow just enough fuel through the squeezed line so engine continues to run.If it appears to improve you will have to replace pressure relief valve.If its a vacuum controled valve check that you a getting a good vacuum supply.You may also want to put a bottle/can of injector cleaner in fuel tank to clear up some of the build up of contaminants that can cause injectors to stay open and/or function poorly.The symptoms you describe are also consistant with a failure of the air flow meter.i think they cost about $89 exchange but check the fuel system first as its free to check yourself and will eliminate one more possibility.good luck

Sounds like something might be wrong with the charcoal canister. If not that, it's definalty something with the fuel evaporative system.
