Question about Chevrolet TrailBlazer

1 Answer

Someone put eggs in my gas tank. We cleaned the tube leading to the tank and thought all was fine. I did some running around. Then today it stopped, in traffic, and wouldn't stay running. I had it towed to my machanic... My car was the only one. They put the carton in my husband's truck.

If you're lucky, the eggs plugged up the fuel filter and did not go any further. At this point, I would have the gas tank removed and cleaned. Also, remove the fuel filter and blow the line out that goes back to the tank and replace the filter.

was the car running fine, before you put the new gas in the car, if the answer is yes, then , i would say , there is a chance that you could have got some water in your gas where ever you got it. " sometimes at gas stations, when the fuel runs low in their under ground tanks, they sweat and draw moisture, and then when a person pumps the gas , the water/ moisture goes into the customers gas tank, i would put 1-2 bottles of heet, into the gas tank to remove the water, that is if this is the case, after you do this, hope fully the engine will run fine, if it does not, then i would have someone to hook up a code tester, to the aldl link, to see what trouble codes have ben picked up by the computer, hopefully the problem will go away with the heet installed, hope that this information has helped you. you can buy the heet at walmart , or at a auto part store. p.s. try 1 bottle of heet first, and then if you need to add the 2nd bottle then you can, but see how it runs on only 1 bottle of heet first.

I TRIED TO PUT GAS INTO MY JEEP AND THEN REALIZED THAT SOMEONE HAD CUT MY TUBE. MY GAS LINE WAS CUT THAT CONNECTS TO THE GAS TANK, WHERE DO I GET A NEW TUBE TO REPLACE THE DAMAGED ONE? THE GAS TANK IS...


there are two place that you can get a replacement tube for your Jeep --- one place is the Jeep dealer, chances are they will have to order it and that could take a week or so to get, plus the dealer will charge you a lot for the part.
the next place to get the part would be a Jeep wrecking yard,, they will have it on hand and ready to pick up right away and it will only cost you half of what the dealer will want. call around to a few wrecking yards and get the best price.

Well, look for spark, if you have it to the plugs, verified, then try having someone pound on the low spot of the fuel tank. while you try to start. Sometimes this will allow a fuel pump to restart. If that does it, replace the pump soon, it is pricey.

I would try to get a fuel filter first and replace that if that isnt it you probably have a issue with the fuel pump. also try taking a hammer and bang lightly around were fuel pump is located in the gas tank.If you have a issue with fuel pump and dont no how to drop tank and replace it you would be wise to shop around because it could save you hundreds of dollars.

Thee new fuels today go bad after around 3 weeks because of the ethonol content. Put a can of Sea Foam in the gas tank see if that helps clean it out. Best bet is to drain the tank put new fuel in it with a can of Sea Foam, then give it a good long run until the tank is empty. Re fill the tank and put the correct amount of Stabil in the with the gas, this will stop the gas from turning into sugar and it works for years.
Good luck

I dont know how to put the sea form in my vacum line or were its at.i know to put half in myc tank.someone told me to put half in my tank,and half in my oil.but i just want to be safe then sorry.need help...


I can assume that you mean Sea Foam, the motor treatment. The stuff doesn't work particularly well, but it does pump a lot of smoke out your tailpipe.

They claim that you can dump 1/3 in the crank case (like adding oil), 1/3 in the fuel tank, and 1/3 through the intake. You don't have to do it through the intake, but here's how:

Locate your throttle body (where your air filter leads to - if you need help finding this, have someone step on the gas with the car off, you'll see a cable) Here you'll see some wires and some tubes.

Trace one of the tubes to a clip or junction on the firewall and unclip it with a pair of pliers.

Insert a funnel into the tube, start up the engine (it will run horribly) and slowly add the Sea Foam over the course of 2-3 minutes. If the engine tries to stall out, give it some gas (you can twist the throttle by hand, remember that cable that moved when someone stepped on the gas?). You should see some smoke come from the tailpipe, this is normal.

Rev up the engine - not too high! Keep doing this until the smoke stops pouring out of the tailpipe.

Don't forget to reconnect your vacuum line.
