There's a ball inside that prevents you from siphoning and is there to keep fuel from escaping in the event of a roll over. Please rate my assistance. Thanks for using fixya.

How To Drain Fuel Tank On 2005 Jeep Liberty Gas Tank


same as most cars like this....
the FSM book covers that.
it says to use drain a hose on the filler hose. (most cars)
and use siphon hose, or hand pump to hand pump it dry.

the dealer has 2 ways, using their scan tool , they open the system and turn on the fuel pump until dry. (fuel hoses to a bucket? after depressurizing steps, in the FSM stated.)
or they use a PRO grade, fuel draining system. that does this.

at home, you have 2 choices. a hose with siphon hose bulb.
or hot wire the pump. (risky making sparks with fuel; no?)

Draining fuel tank


the FSM book covers this. (ill do the full tank pull... as you never said the JOB!)
its siphoned to near empty. (use a hand pump for fuel , sold at all boat center)
do you need the FSM page quotes?
on some cars there is an anti-spill roll over check valve
at tank fill port making siphoning very hard.
my answers are USA cars, on this USA forum.... and swifts vary big time world wide..... dig?

quoted. (no smoking no open flames, outdoors best. no shop heaters of ANY KIND near)
"tank pull steps. (sure drained)
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Relieve the pressure from the fuel system. (in the FSM)
  3. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  4. Remove rear seat cushion.
  5. Disconnect connectors of fuel tank wire harness.
  6. Hoist vehicle.
  7. Disconnect fuel tank filler hose and breather hose from filler neck.
  8. As fuel tank has no drain plug, drain fuel tank by pumping fuel out through fuel tank filler or fuel tank inlet. Use hand operated pump to drain fuel tank.
    1. Disconnect fuel pipe joints and fuel hose from pipes. For quick joint, disconnect it as follows:
      • Remove mud, dust and/or foreign material between pipe and joint by blowing compressed air.
      • Unlock joint lock by inserting special tool (part No. 09919-47020) between pipe and joint.
      • Disconnect joint from pipe.
    2. Remove fuel tank from vehicle.

Have water in fuel Suzuki xl7 how do I drain the tank


no year, huh? some years have a check valve , there,....
this forum is for usa cars, is car USA car?
the tanks just dont like siphoning. (check valve)
the FSM covers this , in the fuel section under bad pump.
1998 to 2006, ill guess, 06

i have the FSM and does not cover. bad fuel, no drain plug.

it shows how to get fuel lower, in filler neck
the tank has check valve at it its metal neck.
so inserting a hose in filler, will hit this check valve.
and all you get out , is 1/2 fuel.
id use the tank out procedure.
then empty all fuel, after step 5.
quote:
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Relieve fuel pressure in fuel feed line.
  3. Due to absence of fuel tank drain plug, drain fuel tank by pumping fuel out through fuel tank filler.
  4. Use hand operated pump device to drain fuel tank.
  5. Remove fuel tank.

tip tank to drain the remainder. out

here is one more way. (IDEA!)
do 1-4
then tip car to left. Jacks then stands at frame.
then remove the filler hose on tank
remove that pesky check valve. from neck last.

and pump out the rest.

How do i siphon gas from my Acura MDX?Hose gos in about 2 feet then stops?


You can't. There is a roll over valve/ball in the neck of the tank preventing a siphon hose from entering the tank

Drain gas out of 2005chevy uplander



As far as draining the fuel, there are two methods I have used. Hand operated pump with a long enough hose to reach in through the filler neck from the fuel door is one method, but requires a lengthy hose to get the job done. A second method that also works is pop the fuel lines off of the tank (you\'ll see it in the video) and attach a snug fitting siphon hose to one of the tank connection points on the fuel pump assembly. Using your pump, suck it dry into a safe container. You Will have gas spill from the lines when you disconnect them, be ready.

Evap system


The FSM is clear on this. each hose and fitting must be air tight.
or the the car vents gas fumes full time, and the EVAP ECU tests
(monitor) make sure this all works.
you can just look at the left and right side above rear tires. and see
if your hands are small enough to fit here. Id bet not.
some mech, report, the tank can be tilted down at front (drained fuel)
and gain access.
keep in mind, you get fuel siphoning at any time. do not open the system, with fuel in the tank, and then drive to autozone,
i loosen the gas cap so that pressure can not build in tank.
expanding fuel can push fuel out , during a filter change. very
dangerous in a garage, and you gone.
it's just a vent hose, you can see, it and what needs to be done is really obvious. given you arms sides and lenght.
my fsm states, " TANK pull"

Removal & Installation

  1. Relieve the fuel system pressure and disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the fuel filler cap from the fuel tank.
  3. Have a Class B fire extinguisher near the work area. Use a hand operated pump device to drain as much fuel through the fuel filler neck as possible.
  4. Use a siphon to remove the remainder of the fuel in the tank by connecting the siphon to the fuel pump outlet fitting.
    CAUTION Never drain or store fuel in an open container because there is the possibility of a fire or an explosion.
  5. Reinstall the fuel filler cap.
  6. Remove the rear seat cushion from vehicle (if so equipped).
  7. Disconnect the fuel pump motor connector and sending unit electrical connectors.

Need a diagram of undercarriage of 2003 Chevy Malibu. Need to replace fuel pump inside the gas tank not sure how to do it.


First, put a jack up under the fuel pump. then remove the two straps that hold the fuel tank or their might be a skidplate you have to remove first. when removed, slowly let tank down slightly so you can get to the fuel lines. there should be two lines and one hose. there might be more, if so just remove them. then remove the filler neck hose clamps and pull the hoses off of the neck where the gas goes in. then there should be one or two connectors. after that it should be safe to lower and set on the ground. then remove the fuel pump by either unscrewing a cap on the top of the pump or sliding a ring around until it comes off. then pull the old pump out and put the new one in. i recommend a fuel pump assembly over just the pump because the assembly wires become corroded or brittle and will sometimes be the reason your fuel pump doesnt work. install is reverse of removal.
P.S. check under your back seat or in the trunk under the carpet to see if you have a service panel for your fuel pump. if so then just take that off and you can pull the pump out without dropping the tank.

I need to siphon the gas out of the car. I bought a siphon kit and put the correct hose from the pump into the tank, but the hose does not even get wet from the gas. The car was just filled up to capacity...


as you are pushing the hose in the tank twist the hose so it rolls over and it should go in, the hose will probably need to be three feet long, you may have to go to lowes or home depot and get a longer hose that will also fit the siphon pump
