Question about 1989 Ford F 350
Have 1989 ford e-co-van 1 ton 350 series, 460 engine. the engine in very good shape, have a fuel problem, changed out the ent.fuel pump,(elecric), fuel filter, seem like lines are blocked or dirty, problem bad gas, van sat for 2 yrs dual tanks, how would i clean the tanks and fuel injectors without major tear down. if there a way to clean the tanks, flush the system and injectors. like hook up to external tank or ?
Ethanol really causes problems in cars that sit around.Thanks for us going green huh?It decomposes non-metal parts in the gas system.If the car sits around for something like 6 weeks the gas does go bad.You have to siphon the tank as much as possible.When filling up,add octane boost first then gas.It still may not work though.I did all that for a scooter and it still didn't work.So if you try it,when you add gas,probably only use 4 or 5 gallons,so you don't waste too much money if it doesn't work,and it is enough to mix the octane boost fairly well.Good luck bro'!That's all i have for now.And gas is gas no matter where you buy it.All those additives the companies claim clean this or that is just sales.Since fuel injection came out,companies are required to add a certain amount of detergent to keep injectors clean anyways.And 93 octane is not better than 87 octane enough to pay 20 cents more per gallon.
