I use straight white vinegar to remove rust.I start by emptying the tank.Then I allow it to sit open and completely dry out.Then I put the tank back together and use vacuum caps to plug the fuel valve petcock.Next I fill the tank with vinegar and cap the tank.I let it sit over night.The next day,I shake the tank hard while rotating it making sure the vinegar covers all areas inside the tank.Then I drain the tank and rinse out with water.If it still has rust,I pour the vinegar back in the tank through a funnel with a coffee filter in it to strain out the debris.For really bad tanks,it has taken me nearly a week to get them clean enough to coat with POR-15.Vinegar here is $3 a gallon so it's cheaper than most other solutions.

Why does my TVS Apache 150 overheat?

Hi, Hasan and the usual suspects are:
1. Engine oil level and SAE weight are too low or not circulating.
2. Insufficient or blocked air flow over the engine.
3. Heavy combustion chamber carbon deposits.
4. Ignition timing retarded due to faulty MAP, CKP, or CMP sensor.
5. Carburetor jetted too lean.
6. Leaking intake or exhaust valve.
7. Water coolant old or low change every two years.
8. Water pump failure.
9. Radiator clogged, cap loose or malfunctioning.
10. Radiator fans not coming on.
11. Clutch slipping, brakes dragging, heavy load, towing a trailer etc.
12. Idling too long without moving.
13. For constant hot weather temperatures, mountain, or desert riding conditions consider adding an oil cooler and or cylinder head cooler.

How to remove fuel pump on 2002 pontiac firebird with remobing the fuel tank

You realy need to remove the tank to do this .However i know some people who cut a hole in the flood over the fuel tank and did it that way although i don;t recamaned it because you will likely have other issues holes in the top of the tank or problems with fuel lines being rusted and ruptureing when disturbed there are a lot of rust problems with chevy fuel tanks and systems

Fuel tanks wont switch. Only burns from rear tank and transfers fuel to front.

the most command thing that go's wrong is a switch relay on the pasnger side of vehicle it has a green relay they get water in them if they are pulled and not replaced in right spot rust inside \ replace it and re install in the right spot

Need new gas tank

A couple things you can do here...

1) Drain the tank, blow it dry using compressed air, and get all the rust out that you can. Use an acid wash / rinse to help remove the rest of the rust. Coat the tank inside with a tank sealer like that from kbs-coatings or caswell.

2) Have a metal shop make you a new tank that will approximate the old one.

3) Install a fuel filter that will catch the rust particles (left over after blowing it out) and be done with it

4) Use an external fuel tank (marine comes to mind) instead of onboard fuel tank.

Sometimes my truck won't start and I have to press the gas pedal all the way to get it to start. What should i do?

i had the same problem. The fuel pump and gas tanks. Over time the gas tanks can collet rust that will mix with your fuel and clog the fuel pump. Get the gas tanks cleaned out or replaced then get a new fuel pump and line.
