Question about 2000 kawasaki ZRX 1100

1 Answer

I dropped a gasket from the cap of an STP Carburator/Injector Cleaner bottle into the gas tank. Normally the cap gasket never comes off, this time it diod and the wind blew just right where the gasket flew into the open gas tank. I thought the thing floated but it doesn't. I probably need to get it out. I tried to take the fuel out with a siphon but it didn't work. Should I remove the gas tank and how hard is it to do this or can I remove the fuel intake flange and stick my hand in the gas tank to get tha gasket out? What can I do?

Your fuel petcock has a filter on it that should not be affected by the gasket. If the gasket is paper and will deteriorate and cause problems , by all means get it out. If it is just a round plastic circle the size of a quarter it will not affect anything sitting in the tank. If you decide to retrieve the gasket , drain the tank, take the tank off, turn it over , and remove the fuel tank sender and you should get good access to the interior of the tank. If there is a splash of gas left in the tank it will help you wash the item to a position where you can see it and reach it with a long grabber or tweezers . Please NO SMOKING during this procedure.

I recently bought a1997 Nissan d21 which of course is having problems slow start, acts like it's not getting fuel ,,stalls while driving

If this car was sitting for a while, most likely just dirty/old fuel...try 2 bottles of injector gas tank cleaner...I use STP concentrated in the black bottle...also add 1 bottle of "Heet" fuel line/tank cleaner, this absorbs water in the tank...I don't know the mileage or if any recent tune-up? These symptoms are also present with ; dirty air filter, dirty MAF sensor, dirty throttle body...worn out plugs can have the fuel pressure checked to confirm no other fuel fuel pump. Try the least costly first...also none of these fixes will create any other problems...Hope this helps.

Engine quits running like it runs out of gas?

Many small things can cause this...dirty fuel, water in tank, fuel pressure regulator going bad, air filter clogged, throttle body dirty, clogged catalytic converter. First try fuel injector gas tank and line cleaner...least costly...use 2 bottles of STP concentrated injector cleaner...also add a bottle of liquid absorb any excess water or sludge in tank...worst cause could be low fuel pressure caused by bad fuel pump...Hope this helps.

I just bought an 2001 aurora and it was sitting for a year and at this time we have started it three times it runs for about three minutes then it stalls out and ideas ??

It could have bad gas or plugged injectors in it. Try a bottle of water remover and octane booster in the tank to keep it running, the next time you fill it up put in a bottle of fuel injector cleaner. I would also change the fuel filter, as any water that it caught has probably started to rust it from the inside. The other thing to try would be to loosen the gas cap after it stalls. Does it **** in air? if so mice have made a nest on top of the gas tank and plugged up the tank vent. You will have to drop the tank to fix this.

Won't stay running, fuel pump ok, neighbor mechanic said it does go on when I turn key. Had under 1/4 tank, warmed van up and went out 10 mins. later, stalled. added over 2 gallons on gas, on incline. Will...

You need to always start with a basic tune up, spark plugs, fuel filter and air filter, as the vehicle will not perform well if any of these three are bad. Then check all vacuum lines for cracks or breaks and replace as needed. You can also add a fuel injector cleaner into the gas tank. I recommend the black bottle of STP concentrated fuel injector cleaner, and you can purchase that at most Wal-Mart's. Good luck :O)

Car feels like it's bogging down during acceleration, also sort of stutters starting at 45 mph and progressively gets worse above that. I had the radiator, timing belt, and water pump replaced last week....

try replacing your fuel filter, With big temperature swings this time of year, condensation (water) forms in fuel tank, Prior to changing fuel filter run a bottle of STP gas treatment or a good injector cleaner through it.

run a good injector cleaner through it like STP gas treatment or Gumout injector cleaner. Might have to do more than one treatment - good practice add one bottle about every third or fourth tank fill.
