It started and ran for about a couple of mins and them water and fuel light came on and it started smoking and missing real bad to the point that it wouldn't start any more , they are wanting to replace all injectors and pump and clean tank and lines but Iam worried it might have done deeper damage

I would drop and clean the tank and all the fuel lines, change filters, and the fuel rails. I'd hold off on injectors for right now. Hopefully everything else takes care of the issue.

Let the insurance company pay for it and replace the whole fuel system and have the check every cylinder with a bore scope.

Sorry for your luck man.

bleach can do some serious damage to a fuel tank, and metal parts..... its a pretty strong oxidizer, and some say it can damage seals, hoses and the like.

If you haven't already, you need to document the threat through the apartment manager's office (at the very least) or the local police office (more appropriate).

I agree with you Jonathan. That way if something does happen the ground work is laid to pursue it. I would put both the manager and the police on notice that I had been threatened.

I got a call today and they said the insurance approved all work except for the injectors so they want to see if cleaning the fuel syst will fix it and if doses then they wil try injectors
