Salt?

A job for this kind of problem would also involve draining the gas tank and fuel lines and hauling off the gas as "Harmful Waste". If I were to take a guess, $300 - $500, depending on the shop and the extent of the damage.

My GMC Sierra ran out of gas and now I can't get it to stay running.


Fuel injectors require a high pressure fuel pump which is located in the gas tank. The gas serves as the lubricant for the pump, so wen you ran out and emptied the tank completely you no longer had lubricant and the pump burn out. It won't pump gas now because it's the fuel pump is burned out and needs replacing. It runs when you put fuel in the injectors as that bypasses the pump. Replace the pump and the never let the tank get below 1/8th full (half a 1/4 of a tank).Not lie the old low pressure fuel pumps on the side of the engine blocks. Not cheap to buy a fuel pump and have to drop the tank to replace the burned out one. $$$ in costs even it you do it yourself.

Theres a gas tank leak comining from the top of the gas tank. what could this be /


Not knowing your milage or what part of the country you live in if they use salt on the roads. The leak is coming form the three fuel lines going into the gas tank and fuel pump. The fuel pump is inside of the gas tank secured by a large slip ring seal. From the years gone by these lines rust and since they are under pressure they will leak through. You will have to drop your gas tank to get to this. This is a ugly all day expensive job. Replace the fuel pump which comes with the new seal and fuel lines assembly. I could sit here and tell you the step by step procedure but that will take hours. The very best thing you can do is buy a Haynes repair manual for your car and year at any auto parts store @ Advanced, Autozone. Read the step by step in the manual. I have used these for 40 years with all my vehicles and saved tons of cash in labor costs. Be prepared to replace the gas tank straps and additional fuel lines depending on how bad the rust is.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. Don't forget to rate me.

OH YES.......BUT HOPEFULLY, YOUR FILTER WILL COLLECT THE GRAINS AS THEY DONT DISSOLVE IN GAS.you will need to STOP USING THE CAR UNTIL YOU drop the tank to wash it out, also the fuel lines.

Gas gauge reads empty and low fuel with 10 to 20 gallons of fuel inside the fuel tank of my 2006 gmc 1500 pickup.


Other than replacing the sensor which is part of the fuel pump assembly inside the tank, you may have loose or corroded connections in the wiring just outside of the fuel pump/sensor position on the tank. These connections are exposed to water/salt conditions from road spray. May the force be with you!

Mechanic mistakenly put gear oil in tank, the pump is knocking


What the heck did he think he was putting in the tank? Gear oil is very thick and heavy, so the fuel pump may have a problem as it is meant to pump gas, which is not thick and heavy like gear oil. There was probably some gear oil in the tank while the pump was operating, and it pumped some gear oil for a short time, which damaged it. Insist that the 'mechanic' replace the fuel pump at no cost to you ,and find a new mechanic for future repairs. Good luck.

2000 Ford Expedition Starting problem


If the fuel gauge drops off when you are driving then its a sending unit problem that means you have to drop the tank and replace the float and sending unit. This is a common problem for alot of cars because of cheap gas. If you have to drop the tank check the fuel pump canster for dirt because of cheap gas. Replace the fuel pump strainer and fuel pump filter. If the car or truck has about 100,000 miles you might want to change the fuel pump at that time also just to cover your back. If you take it to a shop they will charge you at least $900 to start. But if you do it yourself it will cost you about $200 dollars maybe alittle more.

The Pump and Filter are Absolutely the Problem! Replace them Both. Small price to pay for Security and Cheaper than a New Jeep.
