Could be two things that come to mind first , the tank selector valve maybe no good , an easy fix, just replace, also the pump inthe tank could be bad , usually around $150.00, but a lil more involved since you have to lower tank to replace, also if need to replace the fuel pump might be a good time to also replace the sending unit.

2015 Nissan Pickup Truck, why dose the gas tank gurgle when gas is below half a tank? Done it before, but I don't remember how much gas was in the tank.


These newer cars all run fuel pressure systems that have a return line from the pressure regulator to the tank. Many models run this line to the bottom of the tank to prevent this noise. Also possible you have a bad gas cap or cap seal.

Ran out of gas


Probably 2 year old gas in other tank. switch back to the good tank and run injector cleaner for at least 2 tanks of gas.

I put in bad gas in and it stopped running. i already changed the fuel filter. but now its stalling and running ruff and wont stay running


changing the filter wont get rid of the bad gas ---need to drain tank of bad gas and also re-replace the fuel filter also check the plugs not damaged or plugged

Fuel system


It probably is.
On some models you have a valve that divides the two tanks and on others you have a one way valve to prevent the fuel from flowing into the wrong tank from the return line.
You may need to do some internet research for a service bulletin for the problem before you try to fix it.

I have a 95 ford f150m eddie bauer series, i always used the front tank, on long drive's i would switch, over, one day after use, i park it, next morn, it would not start, i switch over to the rear, no...


it may have a seperate pump for the seprate tanks im not sure. it acts to me like its running thaose few miles on fuel left in lines from the back tank. i would start by selcting the frount tank when you put it to bed one night, then in morning have some one turn the key while you listen for a fuel pump if i didnt hera one i would start there. if i heard one check for a seperate fuel filter for the frount tank then check for pluged lines between the two tanks. it has to be someting simple. good luck.

Message center says "Fuel Computer Failure", gas gauge drops from 1/4 to empty - car runs out of gas. Fill tank with gas and car runs fine. 2005 LIncoln LS V8.


hi,
Im looking online and its looking like the sending unit in the gas tank, this tells the computer how much fuel is in the tank. its in the gas tank with the fuel pump. the gas tank has to come out and its a pretty straightforward easy weekend job. get yourself a haynes or chilton manual for the lincoln at the auto parts store. run it out of fuel again and follow the procedure for tank removal in the book or google it. spray the gas tank strap bolts with wd-40 too. have a garden hose and fire extinguisher handy .
good luck

2000 blazer runs rough after gas tank was overfilled


there is a vapour purge line from the tank to a charcoal cannister. The line& cannister has been contaminated with liquid gas. When the engine attempts a normal purge from cannister it gets loaded with raw gas, causing rough running and cherck engine light. Replace cannister. Never over fill gas tank, especially on hot sunny days

Runs rough when low on fuel


Probably a leak in the flexible line that connects the pump to the metal line. Or the pump itself.

Parts


Good luck finding those parts. Check a junk yard. Check Ebay. Most people are careful when they have a vehicle like that, which is why you are going to have a hard time getting them and if you do find them you are going to pay top dollar for them.
