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!

  • It's not a big deal but it's my understanding that threadlocker will cause plastic to become brittle. If you are compelled to use a threadlocker on a fastener that goes to plastic, use nail polish instead.

  • It would have been more informative with an old diesel powered car I think? I have a problem with a Ford Transit 2.5 L TDI from -95 since I lent it to my daughter ... She could not unlock the fuel cap so she broke it and a lot of plastic pieces fell into the tank and no matter how much I tried it is something that makes the engine warning light come on and the engine runs with only minimal power! Any particles should have been stopped by the fuel filter but after replacing it and fuel pump and everything else cleaned many times with broken rusty bolts and change gaskets etc. so the problem remains! Just mean that the fuel system of older diesel cars is much more difficult to get clean and controlled the injection pump and its computer control and the injectors require special equipment that not even the workshops always have ...

So one day i left a 2 gallon can full of petrol with Sugar and Costic soda in it . 2 days later fuel tanks empty also 2 Fuel can . Same evening i saw him broken down , 4 miles from nearest house , i pretended not to see him . He had his car 2 days later in the Village garage while i was filling up Fuel Cans , i said " Isnt that Micks car " , "yes everything is knackered , some sort of chemical has attacked the rubber fuel line and rubber seals in the fuel injector , told him with labour £550 ." . Haha i was pissing myself laughing , . Good old Costic , its in the Traffic Film Remover TFR. Should any of you Chaps need to use it .

  • I would like to point out that compressed air should be used to blow out any dust that may have accumulated around the injectors before pulling them out. I had to replace the injectors on my 98 Corolla, and I didn't do blow out the dust first (because it was my first time replacing injectors). I noticed a lot of dust around the ports, and I had to carefully plug the ports before blowing out the dust. At the time I lived in Las Vegas where dust is a problem.
