Oil floats on water. The filter will catch some. Keep an eye on the oil until your next oil change. If it become a milky/foamy/brown color, then change it. When water mixes with oil, it will turn this color.u should empty your tank then to fill it again.since u didn't drive the can the problem can be a less battery power so be ready to loud your battery.

On my way home we had a heavy rain and I had my gas powered golf cart on the trailer headed home. Now it won't start when I press the gas pedal. Any ideas?


Water probably splashed and got into areas. You may need to park it in the sun and give it a chance to dry out.

Dies sputters


How long ago did you have the engine tuned up? Could be that that the engine needs a tune up. If it was running fine and then all of a sudden it started running bad then it could be you purchased some gasoline with water in it. Don't buy gasoline if you see a gasoline tanker truck at the gas station and the tanks are being filled.. All that is happening is the gas going into the tanks is sturring up the dirt and debris in the tanks. Kind of like stirring kool-aid in a glass of water. Also worse is if the tanker truck is there and the tanks are being filled while its rainning or been raining all day with lot of nice water puddles were until the caps were removed to fill the tanks from the tanker and the water fell in the tanks. If its bad gasoline that is making your car run bad, you can buy an additive at the auto parts that you can pour in your gas tank to help burn the water out of the gas. Hope that all you need is the additive. Good luck.

2002 CHEVY VENTURE, ran through standing water, now it starts, sputters, and stalls.


I think you should head to a mechanic. Sounds like you got water in the fuel system. You could possibly resolve the issue by filling up with a fresh tank of gas, but that could also cause more problems if there is a lot of water in there already. I'd take it to a trusted mechanic.

Water in the area near the gas cap


You have a drain plugged in the filler basin. Also, for freezing weather,keep a bottle of de-icer liquid handy in case your gas cap gets stuck.Been there,suffered that! Owned several Marquis cars. Great cars! don-ohio (^)

We just had a major storm i think maybe moister got in gas tank i was wondering if a can of dry gas would work


they have additives that remove water from fuel,, however that depends on how much water your talking about, if your sure this is the problem,, I'd drain the tank, and start new if you suspect a bunch of water got in,, you might also check the distributor cap for moisture in there, that causes missing and bad running also

Left my fuel tank cap not properly closed now got problem with car as if the fuel is mixed up with air ,car then chokes wats the solution to this problem car uses a EFI fuel injection got meeting to run...


Normally putting on your fuel cap wrong will just cause a "check engine" light that will go out a few starts after you fix it. This sounds like maybe it was raining or snowing and something got into your fuel. Dump a can or two of DryGas or similar gas line antifreeze into your tank and try again. It may take a while to work if your gas got allot of water in it.

Engine cuts out during heavy rains. This started


I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM BUT WITH AN ASTRO VAN. THE PROBLEM WAS WATER WAS GETTING INTO THE FUEL PUMP CONNECTOR UNDERNEATH THE VAN, NEXT TO THE FUEL TANK.THIS WAS CAUSING A SHORT, NOT BAD ENOUGH TO BLOW THE FUSE, BUT ENOUGH TO CAUSE THE PUMP TO SHUT DOWN. BEST WAY TO DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM IS TO FIND THE CONNECTOR AND SPRAY IT WITH WATER WHILE THE VAN IS RUNNING. ALSO DO A WIGGLE TEST, THIS IS DONE BY GRABBING THE HARNESS TO THE PUMP AND MOVING IT AROUND, IF YOU HAVE A LOOSE CONNECTOR OR A BAD WIRE THE VAN SHOULD SHUT OFF.

1995 F150 bucking and hesitating


look at the EGR valve.it should move freely..listen for hissing sound of an air leak,from the intake manifold...with that kind of mileage,it is likely .check the wiring on all the sensors,the map ,air flow,coolant temp,and the idle air speed controller on the throttle body.
