You can purchase a gas tank cleaner from many automotive restoration websites (www.Eastwood.com), but you should also be able to purchase one in your local automotive supply store. Make sure you get one that has an "etching solution" which will clean the tank down to the bare metal on the inside. I suggest you only get a solution made specifically for gas tanks.

Do I have to change the sending unit when I change the fuel pump? How do I know I need the pump and not the sending unit?


Unless defective, you can just replace the fuel pump. I replaced the one in my 1991 Spirit R/T only because the electrical connector went bad (cracked and leaked some drops of gasoline on the floor).
But you can take the opportunity of performing a complete fuel tank cleaning. To do that, you unistall the tank and remove the pump and sending unit. Once removed, you can clean the inside with water and detergent. I used a small Karcher pressure washer and it was a snap. To completely dry the inside of the tank, put a handheld hair drier nozzle into the hole where the gas filling pipe goes into, and let it blow out all the moisture. I did that for 3 to 5 minutes and the sheet metal of the tank got quite warm. That guaranttes a dry tank!. do yourself a favor and replace the gas filter at this time. Good luck!.

When driving is get sluggish like it is going to die... and when opening the gas tank there is pressure (hissing)... after pressure is releaved from the gas tank the sluggishness seems to stop...


sounds like clogged or clogging fuel injectors,sorry for delay in the answer in your problem, been busy w/other issue . suggest easy solution to your problem, purchase lucas fuel injector cleaner,add to your fuel tank. cost $5.00 treats 20 gallons of fuel. just add the ammount that you need. follow the directions on the bottle, you can purchase at auto zone or advance automotive if need be to clear up the sputtering problem. note' there will always be hissing from the gas cap[normal] due to pressure from your fuel pump,it pumps around 180lbs of pressure to the fuel rail that operates your engine the fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail;regulates the pressure to your injectors, that's what makes your engine run so smoothly.

Water in gas tank


I would get some fresh gas, about 2 gallons in the tank, a couple cans of dry gas, to soak up the water, and get that thing fired up and drive it till it is empty. Then put in some fresh gas, and another can of dry gas, by then , you should have a nice clean engine and a clean tank. If you have to pull the air horn off and squirt some fuel into the throttle, do it, just to get it going. Once it starts, don't let it quit if you can help it, keep revving it and drive it. It will sput and cough bu it should be ok. The fuel pump should be fine and the filter will clean itself out of the water. Hope this helps.

Put bio in tank instead of the city diesel wont start now which fillters will i have to change


Was this homemade biodiesel or something you bought from a gas station?

If it's the homemade stuff you are living in a cold climate you may just want to put some petroleum diesel in and put the car in a heated garage for a day or two. Be sure you have a safe place to warm it up. No point in burning the garage down right?!

After a couple days heat soak inside you might be able to cycle the key on and off to pump the fuel around to loosen up anything that may have congealed in the fuel lines.

Two days inside a properly heated garage and some petroleum diesel is the safest and cheapest way to rule out gummy fuel. Plus, it this works you can just run the bio diesel off and refill with petroleum diesel. Bonus!

Some one played a bad joke on me they put antifrezee in my gas tank and what to do to get out


Take to a garage and you will soon find out that "bad joke" is the wrong name for this. All gas must be removed and gas tank dropped and cleaned. you can only hope that that will fix it. Fuel pump, line and injectors may also need attention.

Treated gas for moisture. Got high octane additive.


Even a small amount of bad gas can cause your problem.
So the first thing you need to do is remove your fuel tank so you can drain all of the old fuel out,then remove the fuel sending unit and fuel pump assembly thats in your fuel tank and clean the filter screen, after that you can reinstall the fuel tank,replace your fuel filter and I would have a fuel injector sevice done.
Unless you are very skilled in automotive repair, leave this one to a pro.

Contaminated petrol in mercedes clk230


Disconnect the fuel inlet line at the fuel injector supply rail and bypass the fuel pump relay, make sure u have a container made of plastic to catch this gas in or a grounded to car metal one, do it outside, there is always a grave danger of explosion from gas fumes when u are doing this, if u know the gas station who sold this fuel to u make them pay to have it drained.

Water in gas tank how do i remove it


Disconnect battery,remove the tank and drain it.The fuel pump is no good now too,replace it with new.After draining the tank,let it air dry for several hours so that ALL the moisture has dissipated.After reinstalling fuel tank with new pump,safely disconnect a fuel line up at the engine and place in a container.Add new clean gasoline,and cycle the ignition switch on and off so that the fuel pump will come on and flush the fuel lines of old contaminated gasoline and water.After a thorough flushing,replace the fuel filter with new.Also,add a small can of "Dry Gas" to the fuel tank as this will take any remaining moisture out of the tank.Good luck.
