The only way the empty tank could leak is that the switch that controls the two tanks is pumping fuel into your empty tank. This is a common problem with the Ford trucks. In fact Ford had a recall on these to replace the switch for this very problem.
Problem 2: The F-250 you have probably has a full floating axle in it. Remove the wheel. Remove the brake drum. Remove the 8 bolts on the end of the axle stub. Remove the axle. Then you will need to remove the large axle lock nut and the lock ring under it. Then remove one more axle nut. Carefully remove the hub and dont let the outer bearing drop to the floor as it might damage it. Flip the hub over and remove the old wheel seal. Check the bearings. If o.k. put them back in the hub. Install the new wheel seal. Then reverse the disassembly procedure to place it all back together. When finished refill the differential. And be sure to clean the oil from the brake drum and replace the brake shoes if they are contaminated so badly that you can't get them clean again. No special tools needed. Just a good all around assortment to accomplish this task. If you need to purchase tools it would be a good investment anyway. Tools never go out of style. They have uses over and over and pretty much pay for themself.

Have water in fuel Suzuki xl7 how do I drain the tank


no year, huh? some years have a check valve , there,....
this forum is for usa cars, is car USA car?
the tanks just dont like siphoning. (check valve)
the FSM covers this , in the fuel section under bad pump.
1998 to 2006, ill guess, 06

i have the FSM and does not cover. bad fuel, no drain plug.

it shows how to get fuel lower, in filler neck
the tank has check valve at it its metal neck.
so inserting a hose in filler, will hit this check valve.
and all you get out , is 1/2 fuel.
id use the tank out procedure.
then empty all fuel, after step 5.
quote:
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Relieve fuel pressure in fuel feed line.
  3. Due to absence of fuel tank drain plug, drain fuel tank by pumping fuel out through fuel tank filler.
  4. Use hand operated pump device to drain fuel tank.
  5. Remove fuel tank.

tip tank to drain the remainder. out

here is one more way. (IDEA!)
do 1-4
then tip car to left. Jacks then stands at frame.
then remove the filler hose on tank
remove that pesky check valve. from neck last.

and pump out the rest.

Hesitating when going a constant speed.. seems to be worse when fuel tank is below 1/2 and going up hill


may need to replace fuel filter.or could be an idle control sensor going bad. try running lucas fuel treatment through it 1st, it may only be a fuel injector clogging up, are you burning ethanol gas? i would go with fueling with good gas and adding the lucas fuel treatment !st before you do anything else. if that does'nt work then replace the fuel filter, if not that then i would replace the idle control sensor.hope this is some help to you!!

I own a F350 2001 4x4 V10 I an having issue with the fuel pumps i have replased it twice and am about to do it again what could causes this so many times and how do you replace the fuel pump


The cause of the fuel pump going out all the time its where its made China, Mexico ect... junk parts. It took me 3 to 4 times before I found one Made in the USA and this was in a years time frame. I haven't had the problem since. The fuel pump is in the gas tank. If you take it in somewhere it will cost you about $700 and up. Or you can do it yourslf.

1. Get a jack and a block of wood
2. Unbolt the skid plate and jack up to tank
3. Unbotl gas tank straps and filler neck that goes to the gas tank
4. Lower tank slowly and remove gas lines
5. Undo retainer ring on tank that holds the gas pump in
6. Empty gas tank it will make it easier to left up
7. Replace fuel pump and reinstall

Smell of fuel and minor trace of gas on bottom of tank


Something is leaking, and you have fire risk.

I would normally pull the fuel tank, and if inspection showed nothing obvious, I would take the tank to a radiator shop and have them pressure test it...

Be very aware that any sparks will ignite the vapors, no need to burn, you know.....

Do not ignore this issue.

Dear anew32, Wed 2-11-2009 3:43am EST (USA)

Do you often run your gas tank to near empty?
If so.......
This sounds like it may be as simple as cleaning the water or gunk out of the gas tank which is what I always do 1st because it's easy and inexpensive.
If your fuel is contaminated with gunk, grime, water and/or bottom junk like rust this will cause stalling and rough riding!
Try spraying a can of starter fluid in the air intake and see if it runs! If it does, it's most likely bad fuel or clogged injectors so....
Fill the tank with High Test, Add some dry gas and a good fuel system cleaner or 2 or 3 and this should dissolve all the gunk and clean the injectors! Read & follow the cans' instruction carefully.
If this cures the problem never let your gas tank get below 1/4 and especially never run it to empty as this is when the gunk and/or water will enter the system!
Hope this helps!
Good Luck!

Pump is pumping but not getting gas to motor


are you sure the injectors are fine? how about the fuel pressure regulator, do you have any leaks or cracks in the filler neck or the filler neck at the tank?

Gas Leaking


There is likely a rust hole, or puncture in the neck of the gas tank (the pipe leading from the tank to the gas nozzle). When you are filling the tank the gas runs through the pipe and leaks out of the neck. when you are done filling, all the gas is in the tank, and not high enough to come out of the hole. You can probably pull the cover off the inside of the wheel well, and see the leak. if your lucky, you will be able to patch the hole.
