no start, multiple issues with fuel system
hi folks im having a issue. I had trouble diagnosing a fscm issue so the car(2013 flex) sat with a tank partially filled with e85 for almost a year. I finally fixed the wiring issue and thought I could make it to the shop to have them empty and clean the tank,Nope. Almost immediately had probs. Very rough running, low oil pressure and then engine stopped running. I'm planning on emptying the tank and refilling along with an oil change. Can I simply hook a hose up to the fuel line connection by the tank and jump the fuel pump to empty or is there a better way? Also wondering if I should drop the tank and give it a cleaning? Lastly, do I need to clean out the fuel system and if so with what? Regarding the low oil pressure, though i doubt its my prob, I've read that an improperly running fuel pump can be the cause. Replace or not?
Thanks again folks, and any other suggestions and info will be greatly appreciated.
