Welcome to the world on anti gas theft, there is a block in the filler neck to prevent syphoning, you can disconnect the feed line to the injectors and hotwire the fuel pump to drain it

I know all about replaceing the fuel pump i just want to know if you can syphon the gas out first on a Plymouth Grand Voyager 1999? or is there some other way to get it done? last time we had no gas

You most likely have to remove the filler
hose, to drop the tank,so syphon the gas
directly from the tank with the hose off,
where ever your going to remove it from

How do I get gas out of gas tank on a 1998 Jeep

no job stated, so cant help much. CONTEXT and symptoms do let me help 100x better, for sure.
the fsm covers this.
some cars have anti siphon valves in filler.
on my car is used the fuel pump in the car to pump it down.
but that takes a good fuel pump.(and make no sparks.......)

the fsm covers this. read that. ZJ book, free

is this a pump problem or gauge level problem
or EVAL issue. cant guess that. no way.
and the job in the FSM , is based on that.

ill assume the pump is dead 0 psi cranking for 3 seconds.
and had 12vdc to it , during the cranking event.

above link
open chapter fuel systems
then PDF page 10
there it is , the factory methods
step 11 is tricky ,read that first.

step 14, insert fuel draining station hose to the filler hose,
then pump it down
if DIY, (i have my own pumps, in a box) but you can use SOP
syphon hose now. avoid, drinking fuel. benzene is toxic, to max.
SOP. standard operating procedure of any gas thief (lol)

or connect hose to the filter pipe input
then to external gas tank
and hot wire the tank pump.
ways, all. (recap)
  1. drive it low, zero risk
  2. factory way, RTM.
  3. siphon way. at step 14
  4. external fuel pump way. at 14.
  5. hot wire stock pump way. (no factory steps, just filter pulled)

1993 Grand Cherokee won't stay running or turn over

Sounds like a clogged fuel filter to me, maybe look into the TPS: throttle positioning sensor. Good luck

Jeep makes a whining sound when I turn left sometimes. Doesn't do it when turning right ever and only seems to do it when driving forward. Only happens at low speeds and doesn't seem to affect...

It MAY,,,,,, be the start of a power steering pump problem.Just maybe.The pumps can moan and groan without leaking,so keep an eye on it.Hope this helps.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited?

Location of the fuel filter on 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It is in the fuel tank and is part of the fuel pump assembly/Module system. It's exactly in front of the fuel tank on the Driver's side. The fuel filter lines have tabs on them pinch the tabs and pull the line off. Good luck!

I have a 2003 sante fe that has died with a full gas tank. I have tried syphoning the gas out but it appears there is something blocking the syphon hose from going all the way into the tank. any...

there is a roll over ball blocking you if your vehicle was to roll over there is a ball that will close off filler neck trapping fuel for safety purposes under vehicle follow the filler neck down to tank beside the big filler neck hose should be a smaller hose remove that hose from tank and insert your syphon hose there this should work for you i assume you have determined that the uel pump is your problem and are trying to access the pump??

Husband has 2feet of plastic garden hose stuck in gas tank of 1997 Jeep Cherokee....and it will not come ???

You will need to access and remove the filler neck of the tank. The hose will not come out the way it went in. Has to come out the other way. Remove the trim hiding the filler neck, remove the neck by loosening the hose clips and drawing it our toward the outside of the vehicle together with the sealing grommet.. Remove garden hoise and refit neck and trim
