There is no recall, the problem is the gas gauge sending units are defective.

89 gmc f150 v6 chugging out like its gona die


F150 is a Ford model truck, not GMC.
But at any rate, since I don't know if you have a Ford F150 of some kind, a 87 GMC S15 or some kind of 89 GMC with a V6 I will suggest taking the ignition module to an Auto Zone and having them test it (A free service). Also test the fuel pressure.
If a tune up and fuel filter has not been done in some time that could very well be an issue.

1991 FORD F150 DUAL TANKS,GAS LEAKING OUT OF ONE TANK FROM ( GAS CAP )


Have the same truck and had the exact same problem. Mine spilled out the front tank. Ford did a recall on this problem. They put valves on the lines outside the tanks. Mine had already been done so that was not the problem. The pumps have valves inside for the return lines. I replaced the rear pump, didn't fix it. Replaced the front pump and Voila ... it was fixed. Bad valve in the front pump return line.

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.

1990 ford f150 cross over valve location


Please Help ME by Remembering to RATE ME Thank you Vrey Much !!!

This vehicle does not use an external fuel tank switching valve. A supply check valve in the fuel pump assembly opens when the outlet pressure from the energized fuel pump exceeds the opposing check valve spring force.


R E C A L L 1991
THE DUAL FUEL TANK SELECTOR VALVE MAY MALFUNCTION AND CAUSE AN OVERFILL CONDITION IN ONE OF THE FUEL TANKS, RESULTING IN AN OVERFLOW OF FUEL PAST THE FILLER CAP.
THE OVERFLOW OF FUEL PAST THE FILLER CAP CAUSES A FUEL LEAKAGE, WHICH CAN RESULT IN A FIRE WHEN EXPOSED TO A SOURCE OF IGNITION.
REPLACE THE DUAL FUEL TANK SELECTOR VALVE.
SYSTEM: FUEL TANK, AUXILIARY.
VANS AND LIGHT TRUCKS WITH DUAL FUEL TANKS PRODUCED IN THE FOLLOWING PERIODS: F150, F250, AND F350 LIGHT TRUCKS BUILT BETWEEN FEBRUARY 28, 1989 AND JULY, 1989; ECONOLINE BUILT BETWEEN FEBRUARY 28, 1989 AND FEBRUARY 11, 1991.
NOTE: FORD HAS AGREED TO RECALL THESE VEHICLES BUT PARTS ARE NOT YET AVAILABLE.PARTS WILL BE AVAILABLE IN DECEMBER 1991. YOU WILL RECEIVE A LETTER FROM FORD ADVISING YOU WHEN TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT WITH YOUR DEALER TO HAVE THE RECALL WORK PERFORMED. IN THE MEAN TIME, YOU CAN TAKE THE FOLLOWING PRECAUTIONS:FILL EACH TANK TO ONLY 1/3 FULL. IF YOUR VEHICLE LEAKS FUEL OR IF YOU SMELL FUEL, STOP USING THE VEHICLE AND CALL FORD AT (313) 446-4654 AND ADVISE THEM OF YOUR PROBLEM. REFER TO FORD SAFETY RECALL NUMBER 91S39. AN OPERATOR WILL TAKE YOUR NAME AND TELEPHONE NUMBER. A FORD REPRESENTATIVE WILL CALL YOU BACK

Dual tank only runs on one tank


there is an electric valve that switches from one tank to the other. it switches the gauge too. It is malfunctioning and pumping fuel from one tank to the other instead of the engine. I think there wa a recall for this. Call any Ford dealer and give him your 17 digit VIN # and they can check for open recalls. Recalls never expire and the dealer will repair for free if there is a recall.
good luck
