It depends on how mush water is in the tank, best guess is no if there is enough water that the engine will not start than i douht that by just adding a water separator that it will start, sounds like you need to drain the fuel tank.

Run out of gas and put some watery gas in the tank, it cut off 3mins later


Just plain silly. Remove gas tank, drain and dry. Replace fuel filter. Fill gas tank with 5 gallons of fresh gas. Add a bottle of water remover to tank then start and drive. Good luck.

I ran out of gas and i put gas in it and now it wont start i thought it might have froze but i have it in garage with heater now it starts but i have 2 pedal it 2 keep it running then it dies and wont...


If it ran out of gas, there are two possible easy fixes. One is that the fuel filter is plugged up by junk from the bottom of the tank. The other is that water floats on top of gas and now your lines are a mix of fuel and water. I would change the filter and put water remover in the tank. Make sure there is a least 10 gallons of fresh fuel in the truck. If neither of these work, the pump may have been damaged as it uses the fuel to keep it cool.

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.

I may have put water in the gas tank what should I do? i used two bottles of water evaporator already and it still wont start. Do I need to do major work now?


you will have to try and drain it out, if there is no drain plug, remove fuel tank, water evaporator will only deal with small amounts of moisture, you will also need a new fuel filter and drain the carb(unless it is injected) and the water can corrode the injectors after time

Car wont start...


water in the gas. Have tank & lines drained. Add HEET to the tank to remove any residual water.

Gassed up and now wont run unless at 2k rpms or higher


I would suspect water in the gas...check with nappa they sell an aditive to disolve the water..other than that the tank will have to be drained. Gas floats on water,so the water if there is any will be sitting in the bottom of the tank, you could remove the filler pipe and push a hose in and pump the bottom of the tank, with an external pump.
