Question about 2001 Ford Taurus
I have replaced the fuel pump,fuel filter and gas gauge. My compressor locked up so I replaced it with a by-pass pulley and new serpentine belt but I am not sure if the compressor situation would have any thing to do with the gas issue.
Try and remove filler cap, listen for the sound of air being sucked in as you remove the cap.
If there is a rush of air, see if the gauge runs normal for a while.
small chance that a negative pressure is effecting the reading.
if this resolves the issue there maybe a blocked vent or the new / recon pump may still be faulty? partially blocked fuel filter?
I had a similar issue and drilled a 0.5mm vent hole in my filler cap.
that fixed mine, best of luck.

I would take the truck to an autoparts store and have the fault codes retrieved from the computer. Most stores will do the scan for free. I would lean toward a faulty throttle position sensor, but that's just speculation. The fault codes should narrow the problem down. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Hello tlsnyder52: My name is Roger and I will help you. The problem you have is in the fuel select valve. This was a factory recall a few years ago. The recall number is 91S39.What happens is the valve sticks when you switched tanks. This returns all unburnt fuel to the tank you are not using. Basically fills the other tank while the one you are using goes empty. When you fill both tanks the returned fuel has nowhere to go. The fuel has to go somewhere and pushes out the vent. This is not a hard valve to replace. But I would check as if the recall was not performed it may be under warranty recall. The service kit number is F1UZ9B263B and can be obtained from a Ford dealer. Should You need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
