Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu
We accidently put gas that contained 80% water in our gas tank. we have since drained the tank and the car still wont start? we are hoping we do not have to buy a new fuel pump which is $550.00. should we try changing the fuel filter? what else could be wrong? or should we try? thank you!!
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.
