1995 f350 gas motor died and won't run when I switched fuel tanks? Selector valve or fuel pump? Can I bypass selector valve?


Very inexpensive part, recommend replacing the fuel switch valve. You can buy it at any local auto parts store. If you choose not to, you could replace with a plastic t-fitting but then it would draw from either tank at any time, not recommended.

I've been told the fuel tank selector switch (in the cab) is bad on my 79 Ford E150 van. I have a new 2-pole switch, but since nothing is labeled I have no idea where to attach the wires from the old to...


yes these dash switches have allways been a problem the best way is to replace it with correct one from autoparts store but i usually replace tank selector valve at same time (there both about due) shield your eyes when dealing with this device as gas sprays out when removing it
a note : observe fuel level while driving on both switch posisitions the faulty one will indicate No fuel level when you know you got gas in both tanks

It sounds like your problem may not be fuel. It could be the ignition coil, rotor or module. The fact that it quit right after you put fuel in the front tank is likely just a coincidence.

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.

1992 f 159 dual tanks fuel guage not working


You will need to remove the wire for the sending unit on the tank and ground it to the frame with your selector switched to the tank you are working on and the key on. If gauge comes up to full then the sending unit is bad and gauge is good. Repeat process on other tank. The fuel tank switching valve on the frame also switches the wiring signal from either tank for the gauge. If no change with first test you will want to check the valve.

The fuel pump is in the tank, there is one for each tank if you have dual tanks, also change the fuel filter with pump.
