I need to drain old fuel from gas tank

Two methods:
1. Get a siphon pump with a really long (at least 5 feet) to go in through the gas filler cap.

2. The way I did it was I disconnected the fuel line from the fuel pump assembly on the tank, attached my siphon pump hose to the fuel line and pumped it clear.

1998 ford escort has full power , stalled at intersection and now wont start, any ideas

might have a fuel filter problem or a fuel pump problem meaning the filter might be clogged or the fuel pump in the gas tank is not pumping check ur fuse box there is a fuse for the fuel pump in there if it if blown replace and then turn car over again. if its ok then it still could be a fuel pump problem check the fuel filter located by the gas tank under the car or take to a local mechanic if u do not want to do it ur self. fuel filter is easy to change very easy.a fuel pump on most cars the gas tank as to be dropped.

How do i drain the gas out of my 98 ford escort?

The problem with modern cars is they have no drain plugs to drain the fuel system. There are two different ways to remove the fuel from the tank. You can try a 3/8" hose inserted down the gas filler neck and siphon the fuel into a large gas can. The other way is to remove the fuel filter connection and clamp a hose to the filters forward end and use a universal fuel pump to pull the fuel from the tank into a large gas can. Hope that helps, any questions just ask, Rich

99 ford escort zx2 wont start it died seemed like it was outta gas but has gas

When you turn the key to the ON position, you should hear the whirring of the fuel pump working. If you don't hear anything it may be your fuel pump. It only lasts a few seconds but that sound is evidence that your fuel pump is delivering fuel. If it is good, then check your fuel filter.

I have a 1999 ZX2 ford escort that starts, but dies in seconds

It is was a gas filter problem blocking gas flowing from the pump. What happening was that when it was trying to **** the last drop of gas into the engine it really disturbed dirts inside the fuel filter and made it clogged at fine mesh. And also make sure give sometime for gas delivered into the fuel line it since it was empty when you change the fuel filter. It means you have to keep starting for a while so gas can go up to the fuel distributor then injectors.
