SOURCE: 1996 ford f250 truck 4x4 5 speed 460 will not start

Running tank one empty could have picked up **** from the bottom of the tank and clogged the in line filter that feeds the engine. It should be located under the truck on the left inner frame rail around the back of the cab area. Replace it don't try to clean it out it will just clog again. They are not that expensive from the locale parts house. DHR... EX Ford Line Mech

SOURCE: fuel pump location 1988 ford econoline

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

I have a 1990 jayco motorhome that is powered by a Ford f-350 econoline with a 460 ci motor. I need to know which fuse is for the cruise control?


I would guess a 1990 E350 Econoline Van Owner Manual would have the chart. ISn't it on the fuse panel cover?

If you have no luck, let me know and I will try to search my archieves.

I know this might sound odd but try replacing the ignition switch. I have a 86 c class e 350 and could not get the front fuel pump to run for the longest time. After changing everything else, I decided to change the ignition switch, and believe it or not the front pump came on and started working the way it is supposed to.

Does my ford motorhome have a gas shutoff switch 1991 ford sprinter v-8 7.5 liter


Most pickup based motorhomes have 2 fuel tanks, you may have a tank selector valve that is electric or vacuum operated. Check underneath and follow the fuel lines from the tank to the front of the engine, somewhere in between you may find that the fuel hose goes to a valve that is used to switch between the 2 tanks ie: main fuel tank and auxillary fuel tank.

Motorhome class C, 1988 Ford 460 cubic in engine. Can you settle an arguement regarding the location of the electric fuel pump? I though I read in the manual it was inside behind an access panel on...


You're fuel pump is located in the tank. It would be
illegal to mount the fuel pump in the cab. However
many fords mount the fuel pump shutoff relay behind
the right side kick panel. But I believe you're relay is
located on the upper left corner of the firewall. As to
the cutting out, it sounds like the choke is staying
closed(88 I think it's got a carburator) and dumping
too much fuel and not enough air for a warm engine.
Also I don't know how old the gas is, you may want
to give it some fresh stuff. Hope this helps.
