How to Clean Out the ENTIRE Fuel System (Vandalized with Sugar in Gas Tank)

Sugar in the gas tank? Rust in your fuel lines? Clogged fuel injectors? Fill your car with diesel instead of gas? In this video I show you how to clean out the entire fuel system from how to clean the fuel tank, change the fuel pump, how to change the fuel filter, how to flush the fuel lines to how to clean the fuel injectors. So if you contaminated your fuel system, after watching this video you will be able to clean it out and get your car or truck running again!
In this case I bought a car that was vandalized and was totaled because someone spray painted the car, keyed the car, and put sugar in the gas tank. Since it was damaged, I got the car for 1/3 of what it is worth fixed up and I am showing you guys how to fix it on a budget to make it a perfectly good running car!

    That is so terrible for anyone to put sugar in someone's gas tank. I have conjestive HEART failure and my brother has Copd and and emphysema. I have to get my brother who has scoliosis to the doctor every month. To have that fixed would cost me thousands of dollars that i don't have. It is absolutely appalling that an enemy is so devisive to do vandelism like that!!! What if that happened to you and one of your kids had to go to the emergency room and they died because you couldnt get your car started in time. Or your mom was having a heart attack? Nowadays people are so paranoid that they imagine things that are not happening or they are happening and you can't report to the police because they just retaliate on you and do something worse to you or your vehicle. That is why so much crime goes unreported. Camera's is the only way to you have proof!!!! Tomorrow I'm buying a locking gas cap!!! I live in a crappy neighborhood and you have to watch like a hawk!!!

    You shouldn't use thread locker when screwing into plastic since the thread locker can crack the plastic when it cures and expands. They make a specific kind that is designed for use with plastic, but it's not really necessary to use it when going into plastic.

    Does anyone here have an opinion on the damage that could be caused by diatomaceous earth being introduced to the gas tank?

  82. ChrisFix

    ChrisFix16 päivää sitten

    Never heard of someone doing that, but because diatomaceous earth is absorbent, it would probably clump together in the gas tank and not make it through any filters if it was still loose, and that would make cleaning like in the video pretty easy!

    I've swapped out fuel pumps on multiple cars (Chevy Suburban, Pontiac Parisienne, Hyundai Elantra) with little to some effort. I looked under my Grand Marquis, tried for a while, said, nope. Paid a shop $1800 to get it done. That's to way much effort pulling the exhaust system and axle down to get the tank out.
