Question about Cars & Trucks
How do i replace the straps on the gas tank of a 1990 ford ranger truck?
Posted by Anonymous on
Get new straps. Drain gas tank if possible, prop up gas tank from underneath, remove old straps, install new straps.

See these two threads for more info, I've heard of this happening before, in fact at one time there was a recall from Ford regarding this exact issue - http://www.fordf150.net/forums/viewtopic.php?p=227833 - http://www.fordf150.net/forums/viewtopic.php?p=46861

there should be two straps holding the tank in place,,,,if you remove them the tank should drop down to where you can disconnect the feeder hose and go from there

SOURCE: I have a 1986 Ford
I've had this problem twice (2 different trucks). Both times it turned out to be a bad ground in the engine compartment. Look for a loose/broken wire near the battery. If you find one that doesn't have a home, ground it to the negative battery terminal and see if that fixes your problem. (The wire that I'm referring to serves as a ground for the fuel system, and the pump won't run if it's disconnected. If the wire isn't secured somewhere away from the fan, the fan can catch it and break it.)
Hope this helps.
