Ran out of gas, now have problems...

Postby Lightning » Wed Dec 05, 2012 3:40 am

Due to certain circumstances, I ran right out of gas and since putting in more gas, the car shakes very hard; doesn't idle propely at all and hardly any power when mashing gas pedal.

I believe that the Gas Filter got clogged with the sedimentary deposits/gunk when tank was low. Does this assunption make sense and how should I resolve it? Already tried fuel injector cleaners twice; should I just clean Gas Filter, or replace it entirely?

Any assistance rendered is certainlytappreciated.

Yeh I would prob guess you got some sh*t in the fuel filter. I'd suggest just replacing rather than trying to clean it.

change the pick up filter aswell, as more likely that's clogged, wouldn't put any more injector clean in as won't make much/any difference if you done it twice

Thanks for your input; much appreciated. What is the 'pick up filter' though? Does that also assist in filtering fuel?

Thanks for your assistance.
