SOURCE: 1982 chevy truck with dual gas tanks with guage or tank problems

all you need to do is listen to hear the tank switching valve is working. It will make a soft noise under the rear cab section with the key on with the engine off. zif you do hear it sounding the switch your tank unit for that one tank you try to switch to is a fault. Sorry no illustrated diagrams are on hand, just knowledge

SOURCE: when I switch from my front fuel tank to my rear tank gas stops

There is no selector valve on a 1995 ford f150 300 engine. The selector switch on the dash sends power to the pump in the selected tank. The pump then sends fuel to the engine. If engine won't run on the selected switch, the pump in that tank needs replaced.

92 Ford F250 fuel selector switch


According to the diagram for an 8 cylinder truck, the fuel pumps get power from a 20amp Maxi fuse which goes to the pump relay in the engine compartment.
Then the power goes to the inertia switch, then to the select switch, then to the selected pump.
Do you have power at the selector switch from the inertia switch ?

Fuel filter light comes on when change from rear tank to front tank fuel filter has been change, is there an fuel relay if is where,


I am guessing that your truck is a Diesel. There is no electric fuel pump on the diesel models. The fuel filter light comes on when there is not enough fuel pressure. Possible problems include the selector vavle not fully switching, and/or an obstruction in the pick up in the front tank.

the selector valve is located underneath the truck on the inside of the frame rail on the drivers side If I remember right. Try swtiching to the front tank and tapping the selector valve assembly. If that clears up the light then the selector valve is sticking and needs to be repaired or replaced.

My truck has 2 gas tanks, I try to swich the tanks but it only sucks gas out of the rear tank it doesn't matter what the selecter is on what could be the problem?


I have an '87 Ford F150 just like it and have the same problem too. Most likely the front fuel tank's internal fuel pump is not working. The selector switch sends power to the fuel pump in the selected tank, which then pumps fuel to the high pressure pump mounted on the frame ahead of the dual fuel reservoir also mounted on the frame.

87 f150 dual tanks fuel gauge doesn't work how can I troubleshoot this with a multimeter; what voltages/ohms values are normal


I have a1987 F-150. The gas gauge for the rear tank always indicate that the tank is full when I know it is not. I try to put gas in but the tank won't let any gas in. Is there some type of sensors inside the tank that won't allow the tank to be filled or is this a guage problem?

I took the fuel selector of cause i only want to one tank but now my sendind unit isnt working for the main tank .Cant figure out why i just thought they switch tanks and the sending unit for the main tank...


The fuel selector shifts the curcuitry to read the fuel and turn on the pump. if there is a auxullary harnes like a y, you nest jus upplug it and leave the main harness to the main tank,. If you cit wires you wull have problems undoing the changes.

1985 CHEVY TRUCK NO FUEL FROM EITHER TANK


sounds like the fuel tank selector valve is bad, it should be located between the fuel tanks.could just be a wire off so you might want to give it a close check before buying one. and as long as you are under the vehicle you might want to check that it is getting electrical power to the valve/switch.

as long as the fuel pump is running you must have a restriction in a fuel line.
good luck
