Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

I m not going to pay 37 dollars
AU Auto Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

the easiest way is to take the fuel supply line in the engine off and with the key just cycle the pump on and off, it will take a while but you will get it all out without having to pull the fuel tank
