If you have been running out of gas a lot, I would suspect trash in the fuel filter. Whether the filter be in the tank or inline under the hood, it should be checked to see if its clogged. I doubt if its a problem with the gas, it should have still fired up.

Gas mixed with What? It shouldn't have done anything to the fuel pump. More likely the throttle body, injectors or plugs are fouled

I ran out of gas and when i put more in i grabbed the wrong gas can, it was gas mixed with 2 cycle engine oil. will that hurt my car?


I would fill the tank with some good gas to dilute it. It won't harm anything but it may smoke a little.

1998 xr80 smoking after puting freash gas in


Did you put in 2-cycle mixed gas? If putting gas in it was the last thing you did before it started smoking then I would start there. Oil causes smoke and there's only 2 ways oil can get into the cylinder; mixed with gas or bypassing the piston rings. Lets hope its the gas.

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.

What to do if u run out of gas? Looks like the water is mixing with oil. Is there a place to put gas under hood when u run out of gas?


No there is not a place to put gas when you run out of it under the hood.. You are using a fuel injection system and you are thinking carbeurator... If you ran out of gas you will be able to get fuel pressure back in the fuel rails by turning key on and off.. but not in the crank position. You will hear the fuel pump priming.. just make sure that the fuel rails are full of fuel... and water mixing with oil?? if there is water mixing with oil in your system i will assume it is coolant.. and i will say head gasket. It is fairly expensive so if you know someone i would suggest to get them to do it... You can do a oil pressure test and see if your oil pressure is in spec.. and pressurizing the cooling system with a pressure guage to see if the cooling system holds pressure.. my guess is is that it wont

2002 caravan stalled, faulty gas gage added fuel ran for 2 blocks, stalled added 4 more gallons non-ethanol - no start checked fuel pump fuses & relay had towed 2 miles - started fine! ideas?...


Looks like your fuel supply line has got chocked. This happens when the dirt from the gas tank comes into the fuel line when the tank is getting empty as it has happened in your case. Check your fuel filter and replace if required.

My crank shaft is rotating twise the crank shaft. HOW MY 1342 FIRING WILL OCCURE?, I can spare only 30 digree for charge and spark plug contact. THERE ARE ONLY 2+2 CYLINDER. 180 DIGREE APPART KINDLY REPLY...


Your crankshaft turns 2x times the camshaft. Put it this way as # 1 cylinder reaches TDC (top dead center) of the firing/compression stroke, and this will be after a (8 degs BTDC) spark to ignite the air/fuel mix, the # 3 cyl. will be at BDC of the intake stroke and as #1 begins its power down stroke, (during explosion of air/fuel mix), #3 begins its compression up stroke, the #4 cyl. will be coming down with #1 cyl. but #4 will be in the beginning of its intake down stroke, and #2 cyl. will be coming up with #3 but #2will be in its BDC of the exhaust stroke. Which has just fired previously to #1. 1342134213421342 etc. Now the cam turns to open / close the valves; In the outline above, #1 cyl. valves will both be closed. #3 cyl. will have the intake starting to close at this point. #4 cyl. will just be starting to open its intake valve, and #2 will be starting to open its exhaust valve. Is all this clear as mud? So as the crank makes one full rotation (in a 4cyl. engine) only the firing of one cylinder has happened.and at every rotation one cyl. will fire. So #1 at TDC then one full rotation, #1 back at TDC, but this TDC is half of its 4 cycles, (1)Intake, (2)compression, (3)power, (4)exhaust. this 1234 refers to the 4 cycles of the rotation not firing order.

How do you drain the fuel from a 2000 VW New


this is a common mistake,when i was selling cars i must have put gas in 20 diesel cars.you can run a diesel car with about 10%gas in the fuel with the only problem being hot starting and slower acceleration,(it is common for garages to tell customers that the whole system needs flushing,this is bollox,)NATO tanks run on 30%gas/diesel mix in arctic conditions(stops fuel from freezing and is less volatile than gas alone(takes a lot to burn diesel out of a pressurised container...) just use low power until you can refill with high octane gas...(diesel mixes with gas,it doesnt float on the surface or sink down...so filters are not affected either...))

Put Diesel into tank but did not run


IS your car diesel I hope

3 things your car needs to run

GAS fuel in the engine or diesel
Air air to reach the fuel to ignite it
Spark check for spark ,
unless your diesel than spark is not needed as your engine work diffrent and produces spark by engine speed when cranking and compression of both mixes above

Last check the pump make sure its pumping fuel

Wrong gas


Since it's not running right I'm assuming the lawn mower is a 2-stroke and the gas had pre-mix in it. It probably just got a strong mix of the pre-mix in the lines and just has to be cleared out. We run some of the old pre-mixed gas from our dirt bikes in our trucks to get rid of it. I put a gallon or so per tank refill of good gas. You may try and rev it up a bit when starting to keep it going long enough to flush it out with the new gas you put in, that or start it a few times till it's clean. An octane booster or fuel injector cleaner might help also. If the lawn mower gas wasn't pre-mix it may just be old and possibly have some water in it.
