2004 Pontiac grand prix
I just filled my tank with gas and then it overheated
how do I get the gas back out without breaking
anything incase I can fix heads later
3.8 ? you can unplug the fitting on the motor and then jump the fuel pump relay disconnect to run the pump , small gas cans will fill up fast make sure you have enough , you may be able to disconnect the return line from under neath the car towards the back and the gas may siphon out from there
What would filling the gas tank have to do with overheating? It MIGHT be a coincidence and draining the tank isn't necessary. I'd check overheating issues before doing this..... Overheating can be caused by several things. A broken water pump, a sticking thermostat, clogged radiator, collapsed hose, bad radiator cap, air in cooling system. could be a defect in the cooling fan system causing the fan not to operate when needed. There could even be mechanical issues with the engine that cause this. Start by checking coolant flow. Is the top hose hot? if not it's the thermostat. If it is, with radiator cap off see if there is flow. If not, it's the radiator. If flow, purge air from the system (videos on line explain this simple procedure). This covers 90% of overheating problems.
Good advice, Ed.
OK so the fan went out and I had a toggle switch to turn it on and off it burnt out right after I filled up my tank and my sister was driving it she let it get so hot it cracked the heads I'm trying to get the gas out because it isn't running right now the getting the gas out has nothing to do with the car having a cracked head i was trying to sum it up instead of giveing this long spill of pretty much the main reason my sister will never borrow my vehicles anymore but thank you for trying to help
