Question about 1997 Ford F250 SuperCab

1 Answer

I have a 1997 F-250 with the 460, and dual fuel tanks. I had to remove the rear fuel tank due to a leak. Coming out of the tank are a blue and yellow high pressure line. The blue line has back pressure when you kick the ignition on. Where can I cap that line off, I do not plan on replacing that tank. Any advice to do it correctly.

I would recommend a good salvage yard to find another tank to replace it you can try:
because if you want to sell the truck later down the road it would sell quicker knowing the second tank is there and working

Can anyone tell me what color wire goes to what port on a rear fuel pump plugfor a ford f350 1993

On most 92-94 models you have a red and yellow wire coming from the inertia switch to the tank select switch if you have dual tanks, then a red wire to one pump and a brown and white to the other pump. Both pumps use orange or black for ground.

If you're doing it yourself, what you do is find a good spot to park it where you can wiggle under it and you crawl around and find the leak. You're going to be under there for a few minutes so make it a comfortable spot.

If the truck leaks all the time, running or shut off, then you'll find the leak at a level lower than the tank or in the tank itself.
If it only leaks when running then it's going to be a fuel line, the valve that switches tanks (likely) the lines coming out of the tank (also likely) or under the hood somewhere. Find the wet spot and look up from there, that's how you start. Maybe the leak isn't obvious, if it's dripping off the frame or a crossmember then you have to look around and see where it's coming from. If it's dripping off the tank, only when the fuel is being pumped, then you'll find rotten steel lines coming out of the top of the tank.

With a truck of this age, you can solve a lot of current and future problems by buying enough 3/16" or 1/4" fuel hose and just replacing all the fuel line between the tank and the motor. Zip-tie it to the frame as you go, don't pinch it hard- just enough that it can't move and wear a hole in the hose. Keep the hose where it's safe from road debris- on the top rear of crossmembers and tucked back into the lower corner of the frame rails.

I believe you are referring to the shield under the tank, and yes, you can remove it w/out dropping the tank. I replaced my 2 tanks in a 90 F-250. The only problem may be corrosion, and trying to remove the bolts that attach the shield. Be careful, as you don't want any sparks due to the leak. Don't park or work on the truck inside. I was fortunate to replace mine on a nice breezy day, so any fumes didn't build up from the leak. I also ran the truck empty, had a can of gas with me to be able to make it home. You don't want to drop the tank with gas in it, it's too heavy and more dangerous. Good luck.

Dual tanks on 1990 Ford F150

It should not cause no problems but instead of removing the tank leave it in the truck take out all the fuel in the tank and jus discontinue use of it. This will save you alot of time and trouble and i also suggest that if anyone besides you drives this vehicle then i would put a locking gas cap on it so it cant be accessed at anytime except by you.

Fuel leaks from rear tank to front.

The leaking from one tank to another was covered by a recall from Ford. Not sure if they still foot the bill for installation of the required check valves. These are still available from the dealership. The rear one is the hardest to install. The check valve can be installed without pulling the rear tank. As for your front sender I would clean all of the connections to the sender and make sure it has a decent ground. If it still only reads at the 1/4 tank level you will have to replace the sender to rectify the problem.

2 issues.\1st is the truck has dual fuel tanks and

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.

Hi, My brothers 250 had the same problem and is now fixed.The fuel pump in each tank has a check valve that allows the fuel to run in one direction only. When this valve fails to close fuel runs into that tank when the other pump is running. We replaced the pump and all is well. Dan
