1995 f350 gas motor died and won't run when I switched fuel tanks? Selector valve or fuel pump? Can I bypass selector valve?


Very inexpensive part, recommend replacing the fuel switch valve. You can buy it at any local auto parts store. If you choose not to, you could replace with a plastic t-fitting but then it would draw from either tank at any time, not recommended.

Fuel Gas Tank Reservoir Selector Valve leaking when using front tank


The seal in the selector valve is bad on the front side.
Replace the valve or rebuild it.
Disconnect the battery ground cable before doing any work around gasoline.

Fuel filter light comes on when change from rear tank to front tank fuel filter has been change, is there an fuel relay if is where,


I am guessing that your truck is a Diesel. There is no electric fuel pump on the diesel models. The fuel filter light comes on when there is not enough fuel pressure. Possible problems include the selector vavle not fully switching, and/or an obstruction in the pick up in the front tank.

the selector valve is located underneath the truck on the inside of the frame rail on the drivers side If I remember right. Try swtiching to the front tank and tapping the selector valve assembly. If that clears up the light then the selector valve is sticking and needs to be repaired or replaced.

1997 F250 with dual fuel tanks. Fuel from the rear tank siphons into the front tank. When I try using the front tank the engine cuts out under load. Also truck wont start using the front tank


If fuel injected. the tank selector valve switches both the suction line from the tank and the return line back to the tank. It sounds like you have a stuck or bad tank selector valve if the return is not being ported back to the rear tank.

I have a 1995 f25,the back fuel tank doesnt work and the front tank drains intp the rear..what should i do


the fuel tank switch valve is bad. It is pumping fuel to the other tank instead of the engine. There was a recall for some models in 1989-91. I think you need a selector valve, just my guess.

here is some of what it says:

Your truck is equipped with a dual fuel tank selector valve which is designed to direct fuel to the engine from one fuel tank and returns unused fuel to the same tank. It is possible that the dual fuel tank selector valve on your truck could leak internally and as a result return a portion of the unused fuel to the tank other than from which it was drawn. Should this occur when the other tank is at full capacity, fuel could flow out the filler pipe of the tank past the cap. Fuel spillage in the presence of an ignition source, presents the potential for a vehicle fire.

My f350 1997 will not run on the rear tank . how do i go about finding what the problem is?


well, first, to find out if its the in tank fuel pump or the tank selector valve, the cheapest and probable easiest thing to do is find the selector valve under the truck and switch the incoming fuel lines. front tank to rear tank inlet, and vice versa. If the truck still doesnt run, you either have an electrical delivery problem to the in tank fuel pump or a bad fuel pump. If after switching the lines, it does run, then you need a new selector valve

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.
