How to drain gas tank on 1984 ford ltd crown victoria to remove the old gas?


If the old gas is bad you should remove the tank, dump the gas, and clean the inside of the tank. You may have to siphon the gas to get to the point where you can manage the tank to remove it.

Have water in fuel Suzuki xl7 how do I drain the tank


no year, huh? some years have a check valve , there,....
this forum is for usa cars, is car USA car?
the tanks just dont like siphoning. (check valve)
the FSM covers this , in the fuel section under bad pump.
1998 to 2006, ill guess, 06

i have the FSM and does not cover. bad fuel, no drain plug.

it shows how to get fuel lower, in filler neck
the tank has check valve at it its metal neck.
so inserting a hose in filler, will hit this check valve.
and all you get out , is 1/2 fuel.
id use the tank out procedure.
then empty all fuel, after step 5.
quote:
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Relieve fuel pressure in fuel feed line.
  3. Due to absence of fuel tank drain plug, drain fuel tank by pumping fuel out through fuel tank filler.
  4. Use hand operated pump device to drain fuel tank.
  5. Remove fuel tank.

tip tank to drain the remainder. out

here is one more way. (IDEA!)
do 1-4
then tip car to left. Jacks then stands at frame.
then remove the filler hose on tank
remove that pesky check valve. from neck last.

and pump out the rest.

The fuel pump is going bad on my 1996 olds ninety eight. What I need to know is how long it will take my remove the take and the correct procedure to remove the tank.


make sure you have as little gas in the tank as possible, unplug tank , usually up near top or tank if possible , unhook gas fill tube from fuel door area , (screws usually inside fuel door), unhook fuel lines from tank closest to the tank as possible, place jack under fuel tank and slightly tighten to tank, release tank straps and lower jack, roll out free from under vehicle and remove pump from tank, reverse process to reassemble.

Sometimes my 2000 chevy blazer will not start. If I hit the gas tank while it is being started it will sometimes start. I am wondering if this is a fuel pump problem or a fuel filter problem. It never...


Usually that is a bad fuel pump. Filter is not on the tank. Test it when it doesn't start, or listen, as when you first turn the key to "run", you should hear the fuel pump cycle.

Bad gas in BMWX5


hello Idmathes, the best way is to remove the fuel sending units on the left and right sides so that you don't run anymore fuel through the system. the bad part of removing the sending units is that they have a specific installation angle. does the fuel just have water in it, or is it contaminated with dirt or something else? any foreign matter can damage the pump or injectors, and water can cause pump seizure. I would recommend removing the fuel with a suction pump and replacing the fuel filter after refilling your tank.

1999 Taurus has been sitting 4 years, bad gas clogged fuel filter


1.) Change the fuel filter.
2.) remove all old gas (should actually drop the tank)
3.) run injector cleaner get kit to do this from fuel rail as this is probably cover in gunk


You may also have a screen or filter in the gas tank itself that can get clogged. Get rid of as much bad gas as possible. Like I said above it is recommended that you drop your gas tank but if you don't want to make sure to get all old gas out of tank and at the very least put a good amount of stabil in the tank fill with gas do the fuel rail injector cleaner they sell these kits at auto part stores. Hope for the best.

Let me know how it goes.

Gas tanks leak bad


its not too bad a job , try to drain out the remaining fuel somehow to eliminate extra weight and chance of spilling fuel, remove filler tube connections that connect to the body , remove the straps that support the tank(s), lower tank(s) withhelp whenever possible, remove connecting wires to the float/fuel pump assembly, then replace with new tank in reverse matter, if have spare tire under tank just remove out of the way, also disconnect the battery to avoid any type of sparks when working around fuel fumes, actually not to hard of a job , just usually dirty and time consuming for the first time , also if you cant get the support straps to unbolt you can always cut them off and replace with new ones.
