Re: how can i siphan out the gas on a 1998 ford explor
You will not be able to do so..there is a stopper in the hose to avoid siphoning..health reason it is there..the only way is to drop the tank and try to remove the fill hose then put siphone into the opening..but if your tank is full you will have to be very careful you will get spillage..it would be best if it is up on a hoist..with a tranie jack...

i had one and my done the same thing and i took my fule pump out of the tank and my float was full of gas so it would not float and always showing an empty tank so that might be the problem unfortunately you have to drop the gas tank hope its just a loose wire for your sake good luck
I actually did this on a 98 Voyager mininvan.(this only works on fuel injected/electric fuel pump).Find the fuel pump relay,use a jumper wire to run the pump manually.Disconnect the fuel line at the injector rail and rig a hose to fill up a gas can.(most relays have a pin diagram-basic electrical knowledge needed to decipher the diagram).
it is in the fuel tank. you have to disconnect the fuel inlet hose at the tank, 2 tank strap bolts while supporting the tank with a jack. then use the jack to lower it enough to reach up and remove the "quick disconnect" fuel lines from the sending unit/pump asm. (special tool required) Then drop it down, remove the retaining ring from the top of the tank and pull the entire sending unit/fuel pump asm. straight up and out...reverse procedure to install the new asm.
The only way i know is with a siphen hose, but i have taken the filler hose off at the tank and siphend the gas out from there too. If its a picup truck maybe you can unbolt the bed and lift it back and get at the pump that way then you would not have to worry about draining the gas and droping the tank.
The possible leackage could be the sending unit fuel line rusted and "cracked" after braking the bolts you might have to tap new threads to get the skid plate off then replace the sending unit. Hope this helps seen alot of 93 explorer's do this.....
