Hello Sir or Madam. Welcome to justanswer!

 

Get a new tank from a parts store. Replacements aren't that expensive.

a new gas tank? What does that have to do with the rusted out screws and nuts? I have had this to a certified mechanic who said the price would be 694.00 I am trying to save some money, but now I realize the assembly kit and screws have to be replaced. Any ideas?
Auto Mechanic: Anthony, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
If the tank is bad and the screws wont come out.....Just get a new tank as an old one is dangerous even if fixed as a fuel leak would be the problem for sure...If the screws are rusted that shows the overall condition of the tank...you don't want to have a fuel tank in this condition for sure.
