Lightly tap the CARB after or while cranking.If the vehicle has been in-op, the fuel in the bowl would have gone bad or dried out leaving a degree of corrosion behind. After soaking in fuel overnight, Tapping may permit the float to drop opening the needle valve. Chk the accelerator pump by working the throttle linkage. kEY OFF! lOOK INTO THE CARB TO VERIFY ACCELERATOR PUMP FUNCTION.. If you are pumping fuel, it should start. If no fuel, The pump may have dried up. Again, a good soaking overnight may swell up the plunger in the pump enough to get it working. Worse case scenario if none of this works is rebuild the CARB. Good Luck and be careful. _N_

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.

Bronco II fuel injector back fires and rpm go down then back up?


You may have a failing fuel pump, the symptoms are that of low fuel pressure. The fuel pump is located inside the gas tank, the gas tank must be removed to access the pump for renewal. Remember to replace the filter and be careful not to create sparks and blow yourself up, seen it happen first hand.

you need 4 or 5 gallons gas to be on safe side.could be too late damage fuel pump.never run vechicle low on fuel.fuel pump needs gasoline to keep it cool and lubricated.add more gas see if engine run better.if not i would change fuel filter all sediment was disturb when you add gas to empty tank when you poured gas in fuel tank sediment break up stop up fuel filter.change fuel filter see if car run better if not more like fuel pump over heat and damaged pump motor bearing.

Had some gas in a can, so i poured maybe a gallon of it in my tank to make it to station. then found out it was diesel fuel. i only drove it a block and noticed it tryin 2 boggle out on me so i parked it....


Diesel should not hurt your car as long as you did not put to much in your tank. I would recommend that you buy a good bottle of octane booster dump it in your tank then fill it up with a high octane full like 91 octane. That should make up for the difference. Your car may smoke a little bit until all of the diesel is out of your system but it should be fine after that. I hope this helps and if you have any other questions please feel free to ask.

I just replaced my batt after not useing the car for 9 months and the car wont start


How much gas is in the tank? Is the gas old? If you only have a few gallons in the tank i would advise you to put 5 gals of fresh gas and a bottle of sea foam gas addititve.. if you gas is old it starts to turn to varnish and gets sticky, it smells really bad too.Go to auto zone or wal mart to get the sea foam and add it to a five gallon gas can then add your fresh gas into you car tank..You can also get the sea foam in a spraycan form that you can spray directly into your air intake..Can you hear if the fuel pump is running? Take your gas cap off and put your ear up to the filler tube to see if you can hear you fuel pump working, it sounds like a high pitch whinning sound..Have someone turn the key on while you listen for it..

I have a FORD Econolinen 1993. When I drive he abuse 45 ltres of gaz on 100 miles . Is this normale ?


on normal that trk should be around 6-7 gallons used per one hundred miles drove. i based that at 15 mpg. now that is also based on a V8 engine. now 1 gallon of gas is 3.78541178 liters which totals 12 galons of gas to 45.42494136 liters. This would mean that it took 12 gallons of gas to travel 100 miles which totals 8.3333333333 mpg. not as good as i would have thought. 8 miles per gallon (mpg) hell that engine must be a big block 460. If it is that big cubic inch i could understand but any other motor should do better mpg than 8.3. so i agree that is not normal, tune up, or look for fuel leak in the fuel supply or( feed ) line. From the tank to the motor. This must be a canadian truck yes? well hope for the best or trade that guzzler in for a new breed. stay warm!

When the fuel light comes on, how many gallons are left in the tank on a 1986 4 RUnner


They all are different, but not much. Maybe a gallon or two. The only way to find out is take a jug of gas with you and run it dry. When the light comes on, mark down the mileage, and when it starts to die, mark down the mileage again, and do the math. Don't run it right out. When it starts to run poorly, or lose power, add your jug of gas right away.

I have a 2000 Grand Prix SE and car specs say that it has a 68 liter gas tank. I converted that into gallons, and its about 17.8 gallons. when i refueled, the gas pump only said it put in 12 gallons when...


make sure you fuel tank float isn't becoming saturated with gasoline. If the gauge reads full when it is indeed full, you probably don't have a short in the wire that goes to your fuel float sending unit. If that wire is bare and shorts out it will say you tank is empty since it works on resistance open or unplugged the gauge would read full, closed is or going to ground the gauge will read empty. I would think the float might be bad or the float arm got stuck down when you turned a sharp corner. I had one of these cars but I don't remember exactly where the fuel level sending unit is located and if you need to remove the fuel tank to gain access to the sending unit. I hope this helps you

I but 3gals of gas in my 2008 ford 350 diesel is this going to hurt it, if so how can i fix it , maybe add something to it, i dont hgave alot of money!


Hi:
This sort of falls into the "it depends" answer, but how much diesel was in the tank at the time? The best answer is if you don't have alot of fuel in the tank, then try to siphon all of it out, and then fill the tank up with fresh fuel Even if you have to buy 4 plastic gas cans and a siphon hose, you could **** out 24 gallons of the mixed fuel, and put fresh back in
Regular gas will make a diesel run hot and ping.
Option B is to top off the tank with Diesel and hope for the best....
