Question about 1989 Ford F 150
I changed the fuel filter and 4 hours later tried it again. It ran about two miles more and died again. Checked for spark, and found that was good. It has dual tanks and when you switch it the needle seems to show the right gas level in tank. Is there a part that can prevent gas flow from either tank.I'm assuming that each tank has its own pump and that it is unlikely that they would both go out at the same time.
Sounds like it could possibly be the inertia switch. Check to see if you can hear the fuel pumps kicking on, if not the check your inertia switch. They are made to shut the fuel pumpa off if the vehicle has an impact or roll over. Sometimes they go bad or the wire connections get corroded. I believe it is located in the kick panel on the passenger side. Hope this helps.
