Year 2000 RX300 Gas tank question
Hey car guru, I am now in possession of a 2000 RX300 and it had not run
and been sitting for over 2 yrs. Doing several repair items to get it running
again. In draining the gas tank, I remove the bolt underneath and about
7.5 gallons came out (~5 of which I had recently added). Gas was bad and
smelled like varnish. So question here is tank is reverse U shaped. Will tank
now be totally drained, or do I need to siphon other side by right back tire?
I assume you have taken the fuel pump off if you haven't take it of you shold be able to see how bad it is clogged it might be easier to take the tank off and clean it out but that is my opinion
if it has been sitting for 2 yr then the fuel line to the front will be clogged
thanks crumbob, for responses. Spark plugs are getting wet, but I do think a cleaning of fuel lines/rail/fuel injectors will be needed.
