There is a drain plug right at your gas tank. Open it up, and drain all the contaminated gas inside. Then, blow air inside it to get all the residue, and get it dry. After drying it up, replace the drain plug. Likewise blow air into the gas line all the way to the fuel pump until it reaches to your carburetor. to take all the contaminated gas inside. Then, clean your carburetor free of the contaminated gas inside it. After which, you must put gas at the carburetor fuel chamber,
before you replace it back. Then, replace the fuel lines (gas line), and refill your gas tank. And Start
your engine.

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.

Enigine shakes a lot on strait always when I go up hill it doesn't what could the problem be


First thing, any time you get bogging down, change the fuel filter. That's the cheapest fix you can do. Beyond that, add gas to the tank and see if it changes the prob. Fill it up. If there's junk in the fuel tank, it might be clogging the line as the gas lowers on a flat stretch. There used to be a bad practical joke done with a ping pong ball in a car gas tank back in the day and it caused probs exactly like you said. I'm a classic car type. I know nothing about the modern computer junk so good luck!

Look on the bottom sides of the radiator tanks. It could be on either side, but it is usually on the passenger side tank.

I suspect my brother may of put something in my gas tank to contaminate it. My car not running good cuts out and chatters i recently before this changed my fuel filter, new plugs . thankyou


Sugar in the gas tank is an old trick used against enemies (for retribution) or friends (as a lousy practical joke). If that's what has been done, you'll have to have the tank drained and flushed and the rest of the fuel system flushed. Very expensive job. Good luck.

I have a 2005 Kia sedona and when I try to put more than 2 gallons of gas in the tank it spits it out. Is this a costly fix. I feel like this may something i can fix my self.


I doubt if it is a repair at all. If I don't pay attention when I activate a pump it shuts if like it was full every couple of seconds. Because everyone is in a hurry now days they have started upping the pressure for filling tanks which causes the fill tubes to fill faster than they can empty into the tank, by the way it is crimped a little inside the tank. they started adding a crimp to the end that goes into the tank a few years back to cut back gas siphoning. The other question I would be asking about this is Do you have any enemies out there that like to play practical jokes? A ping pong ball shoved into the fill tube to your gas tank will cause this to happen. I had to get used to filling the tank without using the clip on the pump handle and reduce the flow into the tank in order to get past this problem.

My gas guage stays on empty and the tank is full


Sounds like your senor in the gas tank it self is bad. Most cars have a float that read out how full the tank is and when it goes out it will stay stuck showing you on the dash that your tank is empty even though it is full.

I need to get the bad (old) gasoline out of the tank, but can't insert a hose into the tank to siphon it. How do I get the bad gas out?


How much bad gas?
If you have a half a tank or less put cup of paint thinner in the tank,fill it up w/good gas, you should be fine.
Make sure the thinner is in the tank first,or it will just lay on the top of your gas.
Now if you have a full tank of bad gas, do this:
On the passerger side underneath I believe there is a gas filterjust behind passenger front seat, Remove filter you need a new one,put a hose on the line, turn on ignition and pump it into a very large container,
replace filter, put new gas in

Fuel injection flush - is it necessary?


no its a joke to buy something like that in a can to put in your tank,think about it,raw gas is the best cleaner for grease,oil ,varnish,
But what gas or any injector cannot dissolve is rust partials from metal fuel tanks.And most of them are plastic now.
