I take it you mean the gas tank, follow the filler pipe down and it will lead to the tank. To drain the tank remove the fuel pump of it is located in the tank andsyphon the fuel out there, if the pmp is inaccesable find a fuel supply pipe in the engine compartment and draw the fuel out of there. It is usually inpossible to gain access to the tank through the filler point. Another possibility is to disconnect one of the breather pipes and draw the fuel out of there.
The "MOST EFFECTIVE
" way is to REMOVE The FUEL TANK and DRAIN it By Tipping it over to Pour From FUEL INLET HOSE. Im Sure you Dont want to Here this as it Requires Much WORK . , BUT It IS The MOST EFFECTIVE Way to EMPTY The TANK.
I have a 1994 Ford Probe with a Mazda MX6 2L 4 cyl engine.
When I started the car, lots of white smoke comes out of the exhaust.
Thinking it was an oil problem, I had new valve stem seals installed, plus a new head gasket etc, The 4 cylinders all have excellent equal pressure.
This did not solve the problem, as I now realize that the white smoke is actually water steam, and not oil.
The engine fuel mixture is running too rich, as the plugs are
Is it possible that the problem could be due to something wrong
with the inlet manifold? Could a broken manifold gasket cause these symptoms.
I do not have a car manual, but someone said that they think there is some sort of water pipe which is connected to the inlet manifold. (Which might account for the steam)
Can anyone please give me some advice on this problem.
VERY Probable! You need to get that Probe to a Mechanic and have it Diagnosed. You can also Purchase a Diagnostic tool for the Computer at Any Good Auto Parts Store and Try this yourself! This is Most Definitally a Computer Error Code Problem.
