SOURCE: Fuel Tanks reversed , Gauge not reading?

The Ford trucks were recalled for the tank switch replacement. Somehow the switches would pump fuel from one tank to the other. This would cause the one tank to overflow and or result in a fire from hot exhaust temps coming into contact with the fuel. Check the dash tank switch. It is probably bad.

The problem is that it could vapr lock and you could be stuck on the freeway. Use the proper hose which is a molded hose.

1995 f350 gas motor died and won't run when I switched fuel tanks? Selector valve or fuel pump? Can I bypass selector valve?


Very inexpensive part, recommend replacing the fuel switch valve. You can buy it at any local auto parts store. If you choose not to, you could replace with a plastic t-fitting but then it would draw from either tank at any time, not recommended.

1997 F250 with dual fuel tanks. Fuel from the rear tank siphons into the front tank. When I try using the front tank the engine cuts out under load. Also truck wont start using the front tank


If fuel injected. the tank selector valve switches both the suction line from the tank and the return line back to the tank. It sounds like you have a stuck or bad tank selector valve if the return is not being ported back to the rear tank.

The gas tank on the passenger side wont pump gas to the carb. but the gas tank on the drivers side works good so im not for sure what to do to fix it. i cant find the fuel filter!! 1983 chevy


In 1983 the fuel filter was in the carburator. Unscrew the fuel feed line that ges into the frnt of the carb and then undo the really big nut. Inside the nut is the fuel filter. Pay attention to how it goes in spo you don't get it backwards when you put it back together.
There is also a sock on the fuel pick-up in the tank.
Your problem probably is in the tank selector valve. It is mounted on the inside of the frame on the passenger's side at the front of the tanks. I don't know if there is any way to fix it except to replace it. I never bothered, just used the tank that worked. The GM service manual doesn't show any repair procedures for it. Hope this helps.

Does my ford motorhome have a gas shutoff switch 1991 ford sprinter v-8 7.5 liter


Most pickup based motorhomes have 2 fuel tanks, you may have a tank selector valve that is electric or vacuum operated. Check underneath and follow the fuel lines from the tank to the front of the engine, somewhere in between you may find that the fuel hose goes to a valve that is used to switch between the 2 tanks ie: main fuel tank and auxillary fuel tank.

I have a 1991 ford f-150 xlt.I put a used battery in truck and let it charge up.It ran aprx 30mins and it ran out of gas. Put gas in it and tried to start it and now it will not start.Both fuel pumps are...


If you have dual tanks, like I have, the there is a mechanical fuel selector valve that both tanks hook to. When it fails, it usually fails so you can't get fuel out of the front tank. If you haven't tried yet, put some fuel in the back tank and give it a try. If the truck runs again, you need to swap out the shuttle valve.

Gas leaking out where you fill the front tank


You probably have a defective fuel-tank selector valve. Its located on the left frame rail, halfway down. While the vehicle is running, tank"A" is pumping fuel to the engine, while tank "B" is getting the unneeded fuel that is returning from the engine. Thats why it is overflowing.

When I switch from my front fuel tank to my rear tank gas stops


There is no selector valve on a 1995 ford f150 300 engine. The selector switch on the dash sends power to the pump in the selected tank. The pump then sends fuel to the engine. If engine won't run on the selected switch, the pump in that tank needs replaced.
