How to drain fuel tank 86 Jag XJ6

Remove as much fuel from tank using a syphon or plastic pump.
Remove tank from car, Tip it upside down to drain remaining fuel.
DO NOT WELD the tank if it is leaking or the remaining fuel fumes will explode.

Have a 87 jag xj6 vp and it's been sitting for about a yr and gas is bad how do I drain gas from gas tank? thanks

Unless there is a drain plug for the tank, my guess would be to use a syphon pump like you would use for a boat.

The 1990 XJ6 has been sitting for the last 2 years and now won't start. The engine turns over fine. The dash gages don't seem to operate. I filled the gas tank with 5 gallons of premium gas. HELP!!!

I wish I could give you an instant fix, but I can't. Do you have spark? If so then its either your fuel pump or the CPS, crank position sensor. If no spark then it could be your coil.

I have a 1999 gmc sierra with (as of 30 days ago cat. converter, fuel pump and filter, cap and rotor) changed in garage. regular oil changes, tune ups as of 8 mths. it has lots of cranking power, but...

If i understand you right the truck has been sitting for two years.If it has been sitting that long without running or moving the gas has turned to varnish...I suggest that you drain and refill the fuel tank,and replace the fuel filter located on/in the frame rail on drivers side.

1993 jaguar xj6, do I need to drain fuel out before removing the fuel lines?

If the tank has much over a gallon (5L) then you would be best to drain the remainder of the fuel, otherwise you should be able to change the lines without looseing much fuel.
The obvious thing to note, is you are working on a fuel system, and the risk of produceing a fire is very high, even with the tank empty!

I would replace the O2 sensor on general principles and have a look at the screen sensor for the air flow sensing unit just ahead and slightly right of the coolant tank and behind and in line of the air filter housing. That little screen and its readings along with the O2 sensor and various other sensors can really mess up the idle and fuel consumption. The little sensor screen can be washed and cleaned of **** with alcohol and it will work as new. the O2 sensor needs a lot more persuasion

Gas Tank Removal

The first thing you want to do is disconnect the battery to avoid any sparks..make sure you know your radio code before diconnecting the battery.second: Raise the rear of the car and secure it with jack stands,locate the connection point for the fuel line,just above the rear end assembly.Remove the two c-clip connecting the hose to the gas tank. disconnect the feed and return line allowing the remaining fuel to drain into a container. Once the fuel is drained, proceed to the trunk, remove spare tire and carpeting. disconnect the overflow seal from the filler neck,which will remain on the neck and come out with the tank . Disconnect the fuel sending unit located on top of tank. you should have two straps holding the tank in place, remove them and the tank will slide out.
