I would suspect that you have a failing fuel pump, the fuel pump pressure is bleeding off due to a faulty check valve, this causes hard starting esp when cold or after sitting. The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank, the fuel tank must be removed to replace the fuel pump assembly.

SOURCE: where is the switch for the bed lights on a f150

It should be on the same switch as your dash dimmer switch. Turn the dial on the dash light to make them as bright as they'll go, then there should be a little resistance and if you keep turning, it should turn on your bed lights on...

SOURCE: my gas guage doesn't work

The most common reason is the sending unit inside the gas tank, look under the truck and locate the fuel tank, look for wires going to the tank,the wires will lead to top of the tank, unplug connector and fuel gauge should go to full, if the gauge moves then its the sending unit inside the tank, this would mean the wiring is good and the gauge also works and that leave the sending unit. good day.

AndFuel filler tank has gone bad, best way to

To be quite honest, in my past experience,the easiest way to replace it is to remove the bed. Take out the three small bolts inside the fuel door. Unplug the wire harness from the rear bumper area, take out the 6 bolts that hold the bed on. If it's a six foot bed, or even an 7 foot bed, it's pretty easily lifted by 2 people. It can be done on a lift by leaving the bed on. But I've removed somewhere in the area of 10 of these in the last year. Less time consuming to just pull the bed off.
