Did you change the fuel filter? Are you able to find out what the check engine code is?

Gas tank will not fill up on 2001 ford expedition


Gas as in gasoline or gas as in LPG gas? If its petrol, the fuel sender may be out of adjustment. (Usually means a new sender) If its LPG, the fuel stations are set to automatically shut off at 80% full. The gas tank will never actually be full to the brim but the gauge should be showing full if the gas nozzle keeps shutting off. Have a look on the LPG tank itself, they have a little gauge on them which shows how full it is. I have 2 tanks on my car , when "full" or when the pump shuts down, the tank gauges show just under full but the gauge on the cars dash shows full (2005 BA Ford)

Yea , those crossfire injection vettes can be a bear sometimes . I had dealings with them 84-85 - 86 working as a tech at a chevy dealer . Don't remember much about them , haven't heard anything about them for long time .

How's the fuel pressure ? Have you put a fuel gauge on it ? I would imagine you don't have a Tech 1 scan tool ? What's the map sensor voltage at idle ?

84 f150 carburetor out of tune


When you get a rebuilt carb you have no idea what the
applications are for

I suggest you rebuild your own,
that way you have all the settings
& experience when your done

I think the float needs to be set correctly
& maybe the pump if there is anything for that
external

You have to have some knowledge about basic
adjustments of air idle screws

Start about one turn out from seated & then use a
vacuum gauge to get the highest reading & then go in
a 1/4 turn
Can use a tach also or both,then reset the timing

I would have all 3 on motor at once

When done you set the idle screw with air cleaner on

You put something back the wrong way.....any amount of water in the tank, carb or whatever WILL NOT cause the engine not to fire.....check any wiring/rewiring you did for accuracy

I have a 1987 caprice clasic with a 305 v8 2 barrel that I have to pump the gas pettle to keep it running. could this be the carb or the fuel pump?


this problem is the carburetor which probably has dirt in it plugging up the circuits or a stuck float and when you push on the gas pedal you are supplying fuel through the accelerator circuit.it can be rebuilt or you can buy a rebuilt carburetor,but note you don`t know how long a rebuilt carb has been sitting on the shelf there by it may have dried out gaskets and accelerator pump,and be in worse shape than you own carb.

Silly suggestion i know from a professional mechanic but try leaving the fuel cap loose in case its not drawing air into the tank and its creating a vacumn in the tank which means that the fuel pump cannot draw fuel up .Try that for a day or so and if it doesnt work then keep this post on your Email and get back to me .The clue is the petrol in the carb intake and if iam right drill a small vent hole in teh filler cap
