Question about 1996 Ford F150 Regular Cab
The rear tank works but when switching to the front tank, truck sputters then dies.this happened about a year ago, and they said they replaced the fuel pump. why would it do this again after 1 year?
It definitely has something to do with the fuel flow from the front tank. It may be the fuel pump again, the older F-150's with two tanks soemtimes have problems with the fuel pumps because of the extra pull from two tanks, and the switching between them.
You could check the fuel filter (assuming there are two fuel filters, one for each tank)...but otherwise it sounds like a fuel pump problem, or possibly an obstruction in the switching mechanism for the two tanks, or an obstruction in the line itself. Hope that helps!
