The vents are usually found in the filler neck of those ford dual tank units. They are designed for one way air release. Go to the dealership and pick the parts guys brain for the part number etc. and he will tell you where it is exactly. Then get the part and replace. Save a bundle. When you do the repair make sure you take all the neccessary precautions with any fuel repair.

When truck is in motion going down the road gauge is all over from empty to full when stoped it reads properly


Your gas tank has a float inside that is kart if tne. Fuel. Pump assembly that indicates the amount of fuel in the tank..it sends a message to the gauge...sounds like the float is sticking when the gas is sloshing around when moving..causing a false read being sent to the gauge. Most times the tank has to be removed to replace..good luck..

At 1/4 tank the needle starts to fluctuates. is this nomal?


fuel tank holds about 12-14 gallons and with the fuel low in the tank it sloshes around and moves the fuel level sender causing the fuel gage to fluctuate. there is a shield in the tank that surrounds the sending unit to stop this but sometimes they come loose and move or don`t work as effectively. how many miles to a tank depends on different factors. mainly on how you drive. in general you might get around 18-20 mpg.

On a 95 chevy truck. the fuel guage goes to E with any motion like turns stops . Had sending unit in tank replaced . No change in problem...


the fuel guage will only be accurate on level ground,, when you stop or go around the corner the fuel sloshes around in to tank causing the level at the float to change,, thus the guage reads different

Front fuel tank not working properly


Your truck has a mechanical switch that may not be working. Check it for power and ground.

One of the problems with 2 tanks is a lot of folks only run off of one and then you can get a sludge build up and could have a plugged pick up line.
Try this remove the fuel cap for the front tank.
Disconnect the front tank fuel line from the switch valve.
If you are not getting a good flow of fuel using low pressure air no more than 25 to 40 PSI blow back into the tank.
Now do you have fuel flow?
Your switch valve may be plugged on the front tank side - If you are getting fuel to the switch valve and not through it I would replace the valve.
You may also have a bad dash switch
Hope this helps Please leave a testimonial if it does
Thanks

the fuel pump in the front tank could be over heating causing it to shut down for a short period of time. gas in the tank acually works like a coolant for tank mounted pumps so less gas = more heat

Backfier and sputtering,almost stalls going around corners


couple of things, does this problem occur with a full tank of fuel?if it happens with a quarter tank or less i would remove fuel pump to inspect the sock filter,sediment in tank sloshes around and clogs this sock up when fuel level is low,another possibility that the air /fuel ratio sensor maybe out of spec usually causing "lean" misfires, good luck
