Question about 1986 Ford Club

1 Answer

Engine is getting no fuel

I have a 1986 ford club van that will not start because the fuel pumps (it has 2 tanks) are not turning on. I checked all relays and the inertia switch and fuel shutoff switch as well. I'm wondering if I have to put more gas in the tanks to make the pump turn on in the tank that I wish to use. This is either something really simple or a royal pain in the $^@, I know it. Appreciate your expertise

How can one check to make sure your problem is the fuel pump. i disconnected the line at the fuel filter and had no fuel flowing out when trying to start vehicle is 2001 GMC Safara Van


Open gas cap and turn key forward and listen for the fuel pump hissing noise. If its not there the fuel pump is out. (OPTION) Take heavy object like a club or tire Iron and bang plastic fuel tank in the middle. Several blows will be required. The idea is to shock your fuel pump into working. If it works then get it to a repair shop because It most likely will die again.

Where is the fuel pump located on 1994 ford e350 club wagon


Hello. They are located in the fuel tanks. I say tanks plural because it's a 350 Club. There is also a pressurized pump on the frame rail just to the inside of the frame, just about under the driver's seat, if it is equipped with dual tanks. It's a rare occasion that one cannot run the van without prior notice of a tank mounted pump going bad. I'd try the fuel interrupter switch located in the passenger's side kick panel before anything else. Push the button top to reset it and then try starting the van. If the vehicle has suffered a jolt, large pot hole, bump etc...

Gas not getting to the carburator. Starter turns


Check all of the fuel lines very carefully for breaks or cracks in the fuel lines, especially between the fuel tank and the fuel pump.

If the fuel lines are all in good condition then you can safely assume that the problem is in the fuel pump and you will need to replace it. (If the fuel pump is in really bad shape the engine oil on the end of the engine oil dip-stick will smell like fuel)

How do i get a 1986 ford f-150 with a efi 302 (5.0) engine and auto trans to restart after running out of fuel?


When you turn on the key, the fuel pump starts and runs for one second. Under normal circumstances this is long enough the bring the fuel pressure in the fuel rails up to spec. But it is not long enough once you run the fuel system dry. The easiest way to remedy this is to turn your key on and off six to eight times with 2~3secs interval. If there is no problem in the system, this will get the fuel pressure up in the rails and the engine will start.

Econoline fuel problem, One tank works better than the other


i would put a fuel gauge on it and check to see if it good or not, your frame pump is what give the engine exactly what it needs. The tank pump only provides fuel to the frame pump. So if the tank supply pump was not working, you would not have any fuel.
