You are pulling trash through the line from your old tank.

Back in the late 80's and early 90's, gasoline wasnt as watched today, and you more than likely have debris from regular use and accumulation from using gas cans and what not.

here are your options

1. Replace the fuel tank along with the pump this time. (it will cost another 100bucks but will last atleat 45k-55k miles no problem) = RECOMMENDED SOLUTION

2.Drop the tank and clean it out. (this is very dirty and time consuming work, be prepared to buy a new tank if you take it off in case its more difficult than your willing to do)

3. Stop running your vehicle out of gas. Put tape or something over your gauge or something to where half a tank is your refill point. The most damage to a fuel system occurs when your fuel level is at 30% or below capacity. I recommend 50% for vehicles with major "fuel sputtering"




Remember that all the components of your vehicle work together. Getting the wrong fuel mixture can permanently damage your vehicle by putting added strain on the heads and block, ultimately cause fractures and inconsistancies within the engine itself

GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!!!!!

Would you believe gas is abrasive and rots certain plastics/rubber compounds,also how do you think car makers make a profit,its not selling cars.....parts are worth 3 times the cars value....especially if sourced from a certain country....

92 vw passat 2.0 16v wont start.


I bet it's the gas. After some time the gas will no longer be volatile enough to start the car. Try draining all the fuel and putting in some fresh gas. Remember, when you try to start it again you'll need to get the new gas through the pump and lines before it will start. Also, check the condition of the injectors. Old gas can start to break down and build up a film that could be on your injectors (or clog your fuel filter- better check that too). Hope this helps.

Jeep fires but wont start


What is the year and model ?
You can use a jumper wire to bypass the fuel pump relay to see if it is loosing power or a ground signal from the computer.
The engine has to produce oil pressure for the fuel pump to keep pumping after it starts.
Are you loosing fuel pressure or spark ?

2002 chevy duramax fuel gauge stopped working and makes vibrating noise sometimes around back fuel tank is this a simple fix and how thanks


Well I have a 2002. I have had this prob from the day I drove it home from the dealer. Evry time I'd put fule in the rear tank the guage stopped working. The transfer pump stopped working. It was back at chevy (3) times, and still no fix. They keep puting in new rear transfer pumps in it but that is not doing it.
It is an Electrical Problem, I keep geting rear transfer pump codes. So I was just unhooking the bat's but it's a pain.
So I just stopped puting fuel in the rear tank. And now if it stops working I just us the scanner to clear the codes and it will start to work... I am so done with this truck.
This truck also had ( whater pump, (2) Glow plugs, Injectors, fan cluch,) all go out in the first (5) years. GM, Is trash...

I have a 88 Fiero GT V6 that has sat for over a year without starting. I put in 5 gallons of gas, and used starting fluid. Starts, but only keeps running while fuel is poured into intake. I suspect water...


1) Running fuel pump to remove water from tank will likely not empty it all, but it might help. Will still be some liquid in bottom of tank.

2) More than likely, the gas has gummed up and is no good, While your draining of the tank will help, may still need to change the fuel filter and clean the injectors. The ability to keep engine running while pouring into the intake is a good sign, but mayfind that more parts need to be cleaned and replaced prior to solving the problem.

Fuel pumps i buy keep going out quick!


Make sure you replace fuel filter on truck and try buying something made in the USA I know it's hard to find but the few extra dollars will be worth it. Cause I replace the fuel pump in my truck 3 times in one year cause the junk made in china couldn't do the job. Since replacing with one made in the USA I haven't any problems for the last 2 years.
