Sounds like the plumbing connections at the transfer valve are messed up. When the valve switches, the engine should be connected to the new tank, not still connected to the first tank.

The gas gauge for the front tank on my 1992 F150 is stuck past full


replace front fuel pump because gauge is made into fuel pump and not serviceable. Or poor boy way of getting by would be fill front tank with gas reset mileage drive normal for a day. refill again with gas note gallons used and mileage driven for average miles per gallon. front tank should be around 17 gallons multiply by mile per gallon you figured

The problem with the front take will be repaired by replacing the sending unit in the tank,REcommend replacing the pump also since tank is out, the Fuel pump in the rear tank needs to be replaced, Replace the fuel filter after both tanks are reinstalled

Front tank fuel gauge not working


If the gauge works on the rear tank but not the front, the problem is most likely the sending unit in the front tank. You will have to drop the tank to change it. I guess what I would do is, set your trip meter to zero when you fill the front tank. Then, run that tank to the point where the truck is starting to run out of gas and then switch to rear tank. Keep track of how far you can go on the front tank. Then when you refill the front tank reset the trip meter and switch tanks about 20 miles before you think it's going to run out. It's not a good idea to run those pumps dry. Just make sure you have gas in the rear tank. If you do decide to change the sending unit, run that front tank as empty as you can, also, I would change the pump too. In 92, I think the pump or the sending unit can be replaced seperately. The worst thing about changing those in tank fuel pumps is getting the gas out of the tank. No trip meter? Just write down the mileage from the odometer. Good luck.

I can't get the fuel to the engine from rear tank only


Does this have three fuel pumps? One in each tank and one on the frame rail. I know it at least has one in each tank. It doesn't have an electric switch valve. It has a mechanical one that makes sure the fuel returns to the right tank. When you flip the tank switch the power switches to the pump in the other tank.

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.
