    I took off clamps and replaced the rubber hose. When it was off, i didn't notice a ball check valve or a screen. Replaced it all, problem still exists.Still cant pump any gas. I had to use a long funnel and fill it with a gas can. What else could be the problem? Could the screen/valve brake loose and fall into tank?

TRY REMOVING THE LARGE RUBBER HOSE NEAR THE TOP OF THE FUEL TANK. IF IT IS HELD IN PLACE BY A CRIMPED HOSE CLAMP, THEN CAREFULLY CUT IT OFF AND REPLACE IT WITH A STAINLESS STEEL CLAMP FOUND AT MOST AUTO PARTS STORES. WHEN YOU REMOVE THE HOSE, TAKE NOTE OF A SCREEN ON THE END OF THE HOSE. YOU CAN REMOVE THIS WITH A PAIR OF PLIERS. IF THIS MODEL HAS A BALL CHECK VALVE ON THE BOTTOM OF THE HOSE, IT CAN BE REPLACED WITH A NEW ONE FROM THE DEALER. THIS INFORMATION SHOULD HELP YOU TO FILL YOUR FUEL TANK WITH EASE. HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR AN HONEST RATING IN ADVANCE. BEST OF LUCK. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED.

Why, when I ran out of gas, will it not start after adding 4 gallons of gas?


Hi,if the pump is working ok,I would say that there is some kind of blockage if you undo the fuel lineat the carb or injectors get a bottle and put the end of the line you undone into the bottle then get some one to hold the frottle peddle to the floor and turn the key,then you can see if the gas is coming through,give it a good fuew turns on the key,if gas comes through then put pipe back and turn should start,if not put air line on to blow eny blockage back into the tank,make shore the pump is working before you try this,all the best,hope this was some help.

Okay, you need to make sure the fuel pump is getting power and that you have the lines hooked up correctly. Also, when you replace fuel pumps you need to remove the air cleaner and use starter fluid to get the engine started.

Ran out gas put gas in it still wont start


If you run out of gas in this truck it will quickly destroy a fuel pump, the electric pump is located inside the gas tank, it is tiny and to do its job it uses the gasoline it is immersed in for cooling, if you run the tank below 1/8 tank level the pump is going to run hot, if you run out of gas the pumps rotor bearings get very hot and if the pump gets hot enough the rotor seizes up. Also when you run out of gas it takes more than 1 gallon to get the pump to prime again, 3 gallons minimum is the least amount. The bottom line here is that you will more than likely need to pull the fuel tank and replace the fuel pump.

2000 Ford Expedition Starting problem


If the fuel gauge drops off when you are driving then its a sending unit problem that means you have to drop the tank and replace the float and sending unit. This is a common problem for alot of cars because of cheap gas. If you have to drop the tank check the fuel pump canster for dirt because of cheap gas. Replace the fuel pump strainer and fuel pump filter. If the car or truck has about 100,000 miles you might want to change the fuel pump at that time also just to cover your back. If you take it to a shop they will charge you at least $900 to start. But if you do it yourself it will cost you about $200 dollars maybe alittle more.
