good morning

the tank will have to be dropped and flushed out of all bad fuel and debris.

the lines will have to be flushed out with a cleaning solvent

filters replaced and the housings cleaned.

the pump may have to be replaced but this decision will be made upon inspection.

lines to the injectors cleaned.

most likely injectors will be replaced as well.

this is the correct way to perform this.
