Theres 2 pumps one in the tank, lift pump, and one in the chassis rail under the driver side. The one in the tank is cheap, the one in the rail is not. The one in the tank only produces low pressure to prime the main pump and if it is broken, may not cause that much of an issue except when starting. the one in the rail is a no-start if it fails. The idea is that the rail pump can supply high pressure for the injectors, so a fuel pressure test at the injector rail will determine which pump is playing up. Hope that helps Tim

    If the low-pressure fuel pump that is located inside the tank fails it will not run, the low-pressure pumps not only pumps fuel out of the fuel tank they also are needed to activate the manual service valve that switches the two fuel tanks... If the front tank low-pressure pump is not working(for example) the engine will die because of no fuel (because the manual service won't switch over) ... This is not opinion this is fact, I know I just dropped my front tank and changed the low-pressure pump... The pump cost $43.00 @ Car Quest the fuel sock or strainer (which I highly recommend changing at the same time runs around $8.95....

Where is the fuel pump located on a 1990 ford econoline van


Inside the gas tank. you have to unbolt the two straps holding your tank in place, remove all hoses and wires. pull the tank out from under the van, unbolt the sending unit (normally by blots, or lockring) and pull entire sending unit out. the pump is attached to the sending unit.

No fuel guage readings,cant use front fuel tank vehicle stalls out,fuel coming out of front fuel tank cap when running,1988 ford e150


im thinking that this has dual tanks and one of the selonoids that switch the tanks have failed, Its the fuel coming out the cap that is tough. does it flow out the cap like its over full or is it just a couple splash drops like rain drop? does the other fuel tank read the same fill level while this is happening?? Cause the only way the front fuel tank can get full is if the fuel is being pumped into it by means of the fuel in the other tank. Now im not sure if they run return lines on that but if they did and the return line is near the cap i could understand the couple splash drops. Vehicle stalls on the front tank because the selonoid that opens and closes allowing fuel to be picked up to the motor is bad or the electrical switch or wiring is bad. selonoids are located under van close to the front of tank.
