SOURCE: 1966 Ford Mustang Gas Guage not working

I had a similar problem. In my 1966 Mustang gas tank, the fuel pick-up was on a "float." My float developed a hole, filled with gasoline, and sank to the bottom of the tank, therefore, the gauge always read empty, but the car ran well. All the other gauges of course worked correctly. The repair was a relatively simple soldering job (after removing the float from the tank), but if that is indeed the problem, ensure all the gasoline is drained from the float before beginning the soldering job.

SOURCE: draining fuel tank

You need to use a small garden hose and keep twisting it an it will go. The problem is there are baffels in the tank that you got to get around use a little patence and it will go, the smaller the hose the better. If you still can't get it you may have to for go getting the gas out and try to balance it on a floor jack. If you elect to do it that way get some help as it will be heavy and ackward.

SOURCE: fuel gauge not working

yea fords with two tanks are known for getting stuck if you dont switch the tank constantly. you have to get to the valve that switches the two tanks, and free it up. it definitley isnt anything but the valve.

Have water in fuel Suzuki xl7 how do I drain the tank


no year, huh? some years have a check valve , there,....
this forum is for usa cars, is car USA car?
the tanks just dont like siphoning. (check valve)
the FSM covers this , in the fuel section under bad pump.
1998 to 2006, ill guess, 06

i have the FSM and does not cover. bad fuel, no drain plug.

it shows how to get fuel lower, in filler neck
the tank has check valve at it its metal neck.
so inserting a hose in filler, will hit this check valve.
and all you get out , is 1/2 fuel.
id use the tank out procedure.
then empty all fuel, after step 5.
quote:
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Relieve fuel pressure in fuel feed line.
  3. Due to absence of fuel tank drain plug, drain fuel tank by pumping fuel out through fuel tank filler.
  4. Use hand operated pump device to drain fuel tank.
  5. Remove fuel tank.

tip tank to drain the remainder. out

here is one more way. (IDEA!)
do 1-4
then tip car to left. Jacks then stands at frame.
then remove the filler hose on tank
remove that pesky check valve. from neck last.

and pump out the rest.

I put gas in my car and the gas hand fell to empty and when i turn the car off the gas hand comes up on my 94 caprice


Sounds like you need a new fuel sending unit. It is a big job because the device is located inside the gas tank. You have to drain it, drop the tank, replace unit and reinstall the tank.

Right gas tank overflows and gauge reads empty


The fuel system in this car with two taks is a little complicated. Not only is there a swithcover valve in the trunk but there are also two nonreturn valves in each wheel well. They are electrically opposite which means that when one is open the other one is closed. This is because as fuel is used from one of the tanks then unused fuel from the fuel rail will be returned to that tank. If a fuel non return valve stays open when it should be closed fuel will flow into the wrong tank. This is bad because no fuel is being taken from that tank and it will fill up from the excess fuel from the other tank overflowing the cap and run down the side of the car. If the guage of the overflowing tank reads empty I would think that the plastic float in the tank level unit has cracked and sunk. You can check it after the tank is well down on fuel. Itis accessible after removing the right taillamp assembly.

Air conditioning refill valve


You need to refill from the low side service valve. Its usually on the left hand side and has a blue cap. This is a complecated proccess that takes special tools, if the system is completely empty. If its completely empty you need to vacuum down with a vaccum pump. You can rent from autozone.

Where is the drain plug for the radiator


Should be a drain **** at the bottom of the radiator that unscrews out. It looks like a wing nut has been welded to a bolt on the end of it. Another way to do this is just pull off the bottom hose.
