Asked by Sep 17, 2013 at 08:26 PM about the 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 4WD Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm wondering how to go about fixing this truck myself in the cheapest way possible.
Anywhere from a 1/2 to 1 gallon of water has ran through my motor, along with $20
dollars worth good gas. It died and will not start, but it turns over and you can hear the
fuel pump engage. I need to know the steps I need to take in fixing this. So far I have
purchased a new fuel filter and valvoline water remover. I don't know how to drain the
tank. Is there a plug or something on this particular vehicle? Do I need to purchase fuel
injector cleaner? I'm in such a bind right now financially. Thank you to all that help.

then take a punch and punch a small hole in the corner of tank, tilt truck toward drain, replug with selftapping roofing screw with vinyl washer,replace fresh fuel, bleed line at Schrader valve on fuel rail .you may not even need the parts you have it will still run

Best Answer

You need to take the tank off and drain the water out and the lines then put some gasoline in the tank along with some ISO HEAT fuel treatment in its the best things for removing water.
