FORD HAD A RECALL ON THIS ISSUE YEARS AGO ,, INSTALLED CHECK VALVES ON FUEL PUMP CONNECTIONS TO PREVENT FUEL BEING PUMPED FROM ON TANK TO THE OTHER . I HAVE ALSO SEEN A STUCK SWAP OVER VALVE CAUSE THIS ISSUE .IF THER WERE NO RECALL PERFORMED ... VALVE IS MOUNTED ON THE FRAME , DRIVERS SIDE MAY BE ELECTRICALLY OPERATED OR OPERATED BY PUMP PRESSURE .
I DONT KNOW IF THERE IS A STATUE OF LIMITATIONS ON THE RECALL .
HOPE THIS HELPS

I have a1988 e150 ford van with duel tanks the mech said I have to drop both tanks to fix the 6 port valve the rear tank was pushing gas to the front tank and causeing it to leak out the spout he said it...


If he is correct then it sounds like you just switch parts. Call some Salvage yards and ask about who removes the tanks from their cars.

I believe it is a common practice to remove tanks before the cars are pulled into the Salvage lot. You can probably get the parts you need from them and they may fix it for you for less than $1000. You could at least see where all this stuff is mounted how it comes apart.

The tank straps may need to be replaced. Also try Radiator shops. Sometimes they repair tank leaks and can do the job you want with dropping the tank and switching the parts.

1990 ford f150 cross over valve location


Please Help ME by Remembering to RATE ME Thank you Vrey Much !!!

This vehicle does not use an external fuel tank switching valve. A supply check valve in the fuel pump assembly opens when the outlet pressure from the energized fuel pump exceeds the opposing check valve spring force.


R E C A L L 1991
THE DUAL FUEL TANK SELECTOR VALVE MAY MALFUNCTION AND CAUSE AN OVERFILL CONDITION IN ONE OF THE FUEL TANKS, RESULTING IN AN OVERFLOW OF FUEL PAST THE FILLER CAP.
THE OVERFLOW OF FUEL PAST THE FILLER CAP CAUSES A FUEL LEAKAGE, WHICH CAN RESULT IN A FIRE WHEN EXPOSED TO A SOURCE OF IGNITION.
REPLACE THE DUAL FUEL TANK SELECTOR VALVE.
SYSTEM: FUEL TANK, AUXILIARY.
VANS AND LIGHT TRUCKS WITH DUAL FUEL TANKS PRODUCED IN THE FOLLOWING PERIODS: F150, F250, AND F350 LIGHT TRUCKS BUILT BETWEEN FEBRUARY 28, 1989 AND JULY, 1989; ECONOLINE BUILT BETWEEN FEBRUARY 28, 1989 AND FEBRUARY 11, 1991.
NOTE: FORD HAS AGREED TO RECALL THESE VEHICLES BUT PARTS ARE NOT YET AVAILABLE.PARTS WILL BE AVAILABLE IN DECEMBER 1991. YOU WILL RECEIVE A LETTER FROM FORD ADVISING YOU WHEN TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT WITH YOUR DEALER TO HAVE THE RECALL WORK PERFORMED. IN THE MEAN TIME, YOU CAN TAKE THE FOLLOWING PRECAUTIONS:FILL EACH TANK TO ONLY 1/3 FULL. IF YOUR VEHICLE LEAKS FUEL OR IF YOU SMELL FUEL, STOP USING THE VEHICLE AND CALL FORD AT (313) 446-4654 AND ADVISE THEM OF YOUR PROBLEM. REFER TO FORD SAFETY RECALL NUMBER 91S39. AN OPERATOR WILL TAKE YOUR NAME AND TELEPHONE NUMBER. A FORD REPRESENTATIVE WILL CALL YOU BACK
