Fuel in water


Mr. Harris, My advise is to drain the water and fuel mixture from your fuel tank,remove if is easy the fuel tank and completely dry it up,Go by the engine bay and find the fuel pipe which is coming from the tank to the injection system where probably is a fuel filter,renew the fuel filter, blow air in the pipe from the engine side towards the fuel tank-but before you do blow air in the pipe be sure is not connected to the fuel tank,for not sending the water back in. If you did not start the car since water went into fuel,means that you finished with the above,by connecting everything and put fuel in the tank and start the engine. If you did have the engine running when water went into fuel,means that you have to remove the spark plugs and whilst are out and the fuel tank is clean with new fuel and fuel filter make the engine spinning second to second for 2-3 minutes so as the any old fuel to push out from the spark plug holes. After clean your spark plugs or renew them and also before running the engine is good to put an injection cleaner additive in the fuel tank. Better to put fuel up to a quarter of the tank and run it treating all the system.

How to replace head gaskets


What engine? Has thermostat been changed? You say it has not overheated since, but water not circulating. If water/coolant wasn't circulating, it would be overheating. Please explain a little more or confirm why you think that.

Ill turn the car on for 1 minute then turn it off then put a cup at the end of the tail pipe it will fill it up


The air fuel fuel mixture goes to the cylinder and get spark from the plugs to get the explosion to give compression. If you are getting that much unspent fuel, then you would have a problem with the fuel injection. I would make certain if the cup has gasoline in it and not a water mixture. That would be a different problem. The fuel mixture is not something you should try to do without the proper tools.

Over heat n due to non circulation of coolant into radeator


You may have a leaking engine head gasket or a clogged radiator. Do not drive this until the problem is repaired or you will do serious damage to the engine.

My 98 firebird tail pipe blows white smoke and water out the tail pipe then as i let it sit for 30 minutes the engine gets hotter then gas like smile and heavier smoke come out the tail pipe it also s


One of the main causes of white exhaust smoke and coolant loss is a cracked or warped cylinder head, a cracked engine block, or head gasket failure caused by overheating. A cracked head may allow coolant to leak into one or more cylinders or into the combustion chamber of the engine. Dirty coolant, a poorly maintained cooling system, a low coolant level, or a non-functioning cooling fan can cause engine overheating. In addition, engine wear can eventually cause the gaskets to lose their capacity to seal properly allowing internal coolant loss. Intake manifold gasket and head gasket failures are two of the most common sources of internal coolant loss caused by engine wear.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Water not circulating,we put on radeator cap water pump ,intake gasket,flush heater core,engine radeator,reservoir


check to make sure the bottom radiator hose is not collapsing. sticking together. once it sucks together its like the thermostat being closed. the faster the engine turns the it sucks together. also make sure its not the clutch on the fan gone bad. if it has one. to ckeck ,look under hood at fan ,have someone to rev engine. make sure the fan turns as fast as the engine turns . if it doesn't it's a bad fan clutch. goe put a new one on.
