2001 Chevrolet Cavalier Q&A
2001 Chevrolet Cavalier Question: Crazy X put water in my Engine!! Help!!
So I was informed that the reason my car stopped working was the gallon of water my X put into my gas tank. I was unable to siphon the water/gas out so I put some stuff in it to absorb the water. Before I knew that he had done that my car would start and immediately bog out so I changed the spark plugs and wires. My car starts up and sounds amazing however it keeps bogging out.. and to top it off my engine is shaking so bad that I fear its going to fall out of my car. I took the car to the store, it ran fine until I pulled into the store on an angle while breaking, it almost died on me. I have no idea what to do. Oh Im not sure if it matters but my converter was stolen so its pipe to pipe right now. I was told to fill my tank completely and keep adding stuff to absorb the water but to me I dont think I should be reving my car so much and wouldnt it cause further problems for water to get into my fuel lines.. which im sure its already there but oh my goodness.. I have no idea whats going on with this pos. - SarahVal
try changing your fuel filter - goodguy
Whatever you do don’t start the car. Have it towed to have tank drained. Water won't mix with gas. If it gets into the injectors more damage and expense will occur. If you want us to check this out please call 313-562-7022 or schedule an appointment on line at StansGarage.net. Larry - Stans Garage
