    Start calling shops for a price. Hopefully you didn't run the engine. Some cars are simple and some are complex as heck, like Mercedes. If the engine is seized, flush it with Mechanic's Engine Flush. That stuff is miraculous.

    Flushed, more like steamed cleaned, a couple of hundred.

    Probably several hundred dollars.

    Ask your insurance company if it's a covered event.

  • How would you know that someone put syrup in your fuel tank.

    Really, Sport; hire a better writer.

    Let's check out the non-fiction section for a bit.

    - if it's syrup is will dilute in the fuel if you fill the tank.

    - it WILL NOT clog your fuel filter

    - It WILL NOT block your injectors

    - it will burn with the gasoline

    - gasoline and syrup are carbon based and both are combustible

      Unless you caught the culprit or were told about it, you wouldn't know until the damage was done.

    Just drive it. I wonder why they did that?

    Yeah it's going to cost you about $450. And if it made it to your fuel rails it'll probably cost you another $250 to have that cleaned. I hope you have full coverage insurance if you do you need to call the police and make a police report for vandalism that way you can call your insurance company and make a claim for vandalism to your vehicle that way you might get some of the money back that you're fixing to spend on your vehicle to get it repaired. Of course if you don't have full coverage insurance you're going to be in deep doo-doo unless you know how to drain your own gas tank put your own fuel filter on and flush the gas lines!

    It costs over $100, at least. You need to find out who you ticked off and why.

      See if a locking gas cap is available for your car.
