Someone put balloons ! In my gas tank of my pt cruiser? I pulled three out of the gas fill tube? Now it running rough and hard to start? What should I do

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Ann, That is really mean.... what a drag. The first thing I would do is call your insurance agent and see if this would be covered under your insurance. I recommend not driving your Cruiser until all the balloons are round and taken out of the fuel system. Good Luck!

Suzanne Grego, Technician at City of Philadelphia Fleet Management You need to have your tank dropped and cleaned out. If an object gets stuck on the pick up, you may not be able to start your car at all.
