Hi! My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you with your concerns.
If this occurred after just filling up, then you may have bought bad fuel.
Replace the fuel filter and see if the vehicle allows for a start and run. Otherwise, be ready to complain to the service station for the bad fuel purchased and demand that they make payment on all the repairs to your vehicle after testing the fuel in your vehicle.
If you drained the water out and are still getting a no start, then there is a strong possibility that the fuel is bad that you purchased.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.

David L.Richmond, TX

9 dollars, 2 hours of my time, and I drove away. Your diagnosis was right on the mark. Thank you so much.
