Question about 1996 Ford F150 Regular Cab

Open Question

My 1996 F-150 has a bad fuel tank selector valve. I need to fix this very soon, and dont have much money to spend. Can I just route my fuel lines from the front gas tank directly to the engine without alot of aggravation?

SOURCE: tune up

At each 100,000 mile interval u need to replace the spark plug, at 30,000 the air filter and fuel filter, check the cooling system hoses and coolant every 60,000 miles, check the drive belt every 30,000, replace after 60,000. These are routine suggested maint items.

And don't forget to keep the pressure correct in the tires, under-inflated tires kill fuel mileage.

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.

Car continues to misfire. Replaced spark plugs, wires, coils, module, fuel pressure regulator, and injectors. What else is left to do, without spending more money!!!!!!!


Guessing is the way to spend the most amount of money. After spending a lot of money guessing, most people dont want to spend money fixing the real problem, which in all cases, cost less than what they have spent. A shop will need to take it from here, First is to narrow down which cylinder is misfiring then go from there, Check fuel trims, compression, Vac leak, signal from the injector to the ecm. The injector is hot and the ecm grounds it. You dont say which engine you have, but the 2.4L have had a lot of coil housings go bad.

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

1987 f-150 dual tanks fuel problem


You are right. There are three pumps. It sounds like the transfer pump in the front tank is bad. The in tank pumps just supply the high pressure pump to keep it primed. You need the front pump.

1985 CHEVY TRUCK NO FUEL FROM EITHER TANK


sounds like the fuel tank selector valve is bad, it should be located between the fuel tanks.could just be a wire off so you might want to give it a close check before buying one. and as long as you are under the vehicle you might want to check that it is getting electrical power to the valve/switch.
