Do I have to drop the fuel tank to replace my fuel pump? Or does it have a drain plug?

3.8liter 6 cylinder fuel injected. Mine is not a super charger.

My 2006 hyundai santa fe 6 cylinder ran out of gas and now wont start.hionow do i unlock the fuel injection air lock


Fuel injection is self bleeding, so that is not the problem, it is my guess you burned out the in fuel tank fuel pump. The tiny pump depends on the cool gas to lubricate and cool itself, so running out of gas can very quickly destroy the fuel pump.

Engine type


There are several engine types

1. 3 cylinder
2. Straight 4 cylinder
3. Horizontally opposed 4 cylinder
4. Straight 5 cylinder
5. Straight 6 cylinder
6. Horizontally opposed 6 cylinder
7. V-6
8. V-8
9. V-10

You can find all these engines in various vehicles produced in the last 20 year whether they be gas, diesel, carburated, fuel injected, super charged, or turbo charged.

Cylinder 6 is misfiring. What was will fix this problem? It's a 5.7L v8 in a Chevy 1500.


You don't say what year the truck is, so I will guess on the fuel system.
You need spark, fuel, and compression for the cylinder to produce power. One of the three is missing.
If the engine has multi-port fuel injection the injector for that cylinder could have failed.
Could also be a plug, plug wire, or something mechanical.

Explan what super charger means


A supercharger is a mechanically driven device which pumps/ forces more air into the engine.
The purpose is to increase the power output by increasing the volume of fuel / air mix in the cylinders which gives you a bigger bang versus normally aspirated, for the size of cylinder.
You might imagine that when drawing in air (with fuel) at high speed, you will actually have slightly less air pressure in a fully extended cylinder when the intake valve shuts off, due to inertia of the air.
If you force air in, you can have greater than ambient pressure in the extended cylinder. Hence more fuel/air to burn in one stroke. Hence bigger bang. Avg power increase may be 20 - 25 percent.

A turbo charger does the same thing BUT uses the eshaust gas pressure to drive the charger. The end result is the same-ish, with varying pros and cons for each system. Generally you get more power boost from supercharger.

Know if my 95 chevy blazer has a spider CPI?


A spider injector is located underneath the intake plenum and this is multi-port. Otherwise you have a throttle body injector system. Vortec engines have spider injectors and they are super expensive to replace ($400.00- 850.00) each ! There is only one spider injector for each engine it has 6 legs/fuel tubes that go to each cylinder.
