There is no drain. You can take a siphon(you can purchase these at any autoparts store) and drain the tank this way. It will make it a lot easier and safer.

We have a 97 chevy lumina that had water in the gas and we need to know where the fuel pump reset button is

There is no reset button for an overload situation on the fuel pump. The only reset is for when the vehicle gets into an accident, which activates on impact. So, I don't think this is what you are looking for. I would suggest looking at the fuse panel, which would be located in the engine compartment and it should be labeled. If this is not your problem, then you probably have a problem with the fuel pump itself or the fuel filter is plugged with water. The fuel filters do not like water, so by purging the gas through the bleeder valve you will be putting all that water into the fuel filter. I would suggest removing the fuel filter and purge the fuel/water at that location. You should replace the filter anyway, so I would remove it and see if the pump still works.

I would also suggest putting a couple of bottles of "Heat" or similar products in the tank, because you will not be able to get everything out.

Good luck....

I put my car in the river (accidentally) last week but it still had like a full tank of gas in it. the gas is still there and the car is now in my lane way drying out. i want to get the gas out and put in...

The gas in "the accident car" is probably mixed with a bunch of water if you put it in the river. That may not be a good idea since you have a "new car". I would sure hate for you to mess that new one up just because you put bad gas in it.

When filling gas tank the gas pump kicks off unless I trickle in the gas. Takes about 10 minutes to fill 18 gallons of gas. What is the fix?

Fuel tank vent hose damaged, kinked, or bent.

Fuel tank vent valve is defective, plugged with dirt, or damaged.

If the car is driven normally and has never been in an accident, it's probably the valve.

The yellow engine lights comes on an off on the dash board. I took it to Auto Zone yesterday and they ran the number and it read that it was the EGR Valve. I did get into a car accident back in February....

The car accident probably did not affect the EGR Valve. The EGR Valve can get dirty, plugged, or can leak vacuum causing the error. It's not urgent to get fixed unless it causes a rough idle or driveability problem. It can wait until an Emissions Inspection is done where it would probably fail.

This seems to be an intermittent failure if the light goes on and off.

Good luck on the repair.

Water in gas tank

I would get some fresh gas, about 2 gallons in the tank, a couple cans of dry gas, to soak up the water, and get that thing fired up and drive it till it is empty. Then put in some fresh gas, and another can of dry gas, by then , you should have a nice clean engine and a clean tank. If you have to pull the air horn off and squirt some fuel into the throttle, do it, just to get it going. Once it starts, don't let it quit if you can help it, keep revving it and drive it. It will sput and cough bu it should be ok. The fuel pump should be fine and the filter will clean itself out of the water. Hope this helps.

Is it easy to replace fuel filter?

Fuel Filters are very simple to change. Changing the filter will probably eliminate a suspect in a rough idle, but may not fix the rough idle. The filter is under the driver's side, next to the frame rail on the inside. You will need some shop rags, a pair of pliers, an adjustable crescent wrench, or a wrench set (I can't remember the exact size) and a plan to bleed off the fuel pressure, unless of course you enjoy spraying your self with fuel.

Disconnect the battery and relieve the fuel pressure. Under the hood there is a pressure releif valve (it's a schrader valve, similar to a valve stem on a tire). You can get a kit at parts store that will capture the fluid or you can use the shop rags and hold them over the valve while you depress the pin. Honestly, I would get the kit. After my last experience changing my filter I wouldn't go any other way.

Once you have relieved the fuel pressure, crawl under the truck and change the filter by loosening the nut on the tank side and with the pliers pinching the release tabs on the the motor side of the filter and remove the filter. Have a couple of shop rags and or a small pan to catch the residual fluid that will drain out of the lines.

Install the new filter and make sure your connections are tight, then make sure all the gas is cleaned up from both under the vehicle and under the hood (if needed spray degreaser and hose off. You don't want gas puddled somewhere in the engine bay.) Make sure your pressure relief kit is removed and the cap covering the relief valve replaced. Reconnect the battery and turn on the key. Let the pump run (the whine you hear when you first turn the key) till it shuts off to build up a little bit pressure then crank the motor to start the truck. The truck will take longer to start than normal as you have emptied the gas lines and so it will take a few cranks to get the truck started. But once the truck is started, make sure there are no leaks in the fuel system. Don't stick your head under the truck in case the you accidently didn't tighten something properly and the minute you stick your head under there it decides to come apart. Just look without sticking your head under the vehicle.

Fuel filter

If you are looking for the location of the fuel filter - it is against the frame on the inside under the drivers seat area. Release the pressure to the system before disconnecting it by either releasing the gas cap or pressing the releif valve on the fuek rail and pull the fuel pump relay to be safe.

Blue smoke comes from tailpipe

A lower octane gas woudn't cause it to blow blue smoke, more like it needs an engine job. There is oil getting into the combustion chamber, could be valve guides, valve seats, piston rings worn.
