Fuel Tank Replacement

Draining Procedure

Warning! Gasoline or gasoline vapors are highly flammable. A fire could occur if an ignition source is present. Never drain or store gasoline or diesel fuel in an open container, due to the possibility of fire or explosion. Have a dry chemical (Class B) fire extinguisher nearby.
    Warning!Unless directed otherwise, the ignition and start switch must be in the OFF or LOCK position, and all electrical loads must be OFF before servicing any electrical component. Disconnect the negative battery cable to prevent an electrical spark should a tool or equipment come in contact with an exposed electrical terminal. Failure to follow these precautions may result in personal injury and/or damage to the vehicle or its components.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Use a hand operated pump device in order to remove the fuel through the filler neck.
  3. If the pump is equipped, make sure to hook up the static ground wire to a metal part of the gas tank before you begin.

Removal Procedure

  1. Raise the vehicle. Refer to Caution! When jacking or lifting a vehicle, do not allow the lift pads to contact any of the following parts:
    • The catalytic converter
    • The brake lines
    • The brake cables
    • The fuel lines
    • The accelerator cables
    • The transmission shift cables
    Lift pad contact may damage the parts. Lift pad contact may cause unsatisfactory vehicle performance. in General Information.

How do i replace front brake hoses on 94 ford ranger


Here is a good forum to find your answer.
http://www.fordrangerforum.com/exterior-tech/88010-brake-line-hose-replacement-94-xlt-2-dr.html

A few few things to remember: Purchase fresh new brake fluid and have a clean MityVac pump (both can be purchased through AutoZone, NAPA, Orielys, etc..) , plenty of clean rags, brake line clamps to stop the fluid from leaking when you initially pull the line off.
Be prepared to bleed ALL the brakes after changing the lines. When bleeding the brakes (after replacing the old lines) work from the caliper that is the longest distance from the brake master cylinder first to the shortest distance line.

The 2010 chevy head rest is leaning forward at about a 45 degree angle it is comfortable to the head but leaves a big gap for the neck is this a safety hazzard.


Not necessarily a hazard, more uncomfortable on a long trip. According to safety standards your head shouldn't be touching when your driving, it's more to prevent whiplash in case of an accident.

We had a recall 03 windstar ABS light was on all time we had front and back brakes replaced ford checked said rear axle ok but, light is still on and brakes make a terrible noise and sometimes they go to...


I own a 2001 Windstar. Your noisy brake problem could be nothing more that new brakes being broken in. I have done many brake jobs on my 2001 Windstar as well as other vehicles that I have owned. To prevent this problem from occuring, I apply a thin film of Disc Brake Quieter directly to each brake pad during the installation process. This quiets the brakes during the break in period. I hope this helps.

Amber light is on. says...Rear Anti-lock brakes?


This is a problem that needs immediate attention. The light is a warning that your Anti-Lock brakes are turned off to prevent them from operating inapropriately due to an error condition in the system. This could be a bad wire, faulty sensor, damage tone ring, ect... If you don't want to take your truck to a brake specialist, go over the back brakes very carefully and look for anything that looks worn or damaged. The tone ring is a gear like ring that is pressed onto the axel if this is damaged or badly rusted it will cause the sensor to get a faulty reading. If the sensor is out of place or it or it's wiring is damaged this will cause a false signal. It could be actual brake problems. Beyond these possibilities you'll need a diagnostic brake computer to find the problem. Good luck.

Where is the abs brake controller?


An anti-lock braking system, or ABS (from the German, Antiblockiersystem) is a safety system which prevents the wheels on a motor vehicle from locking while braking.
A rotating road wheel allows the driver to maintain steering control under heavy braking by preventing a skid and allowing the wheel to continue interacting tractively with the road surface as directed by driver steering inputs. While ABS offers improved vehicle control in some circumstances, it can also present disadvantages including increased braking distance on slippery surfaces such as ice, packed snow, gravel, steel plates and bridges, or anything other than dry pavement. ABS has also been demonstrated to create a false sense of security in drivers, who may drive more aggressively as a result.[citation needed]
Since initial widespread use in production cars, anti-lock braking systems have evolved considerably. Recent versions not only prevent wheel lock under braking, but also electronically control the front-to-rear brake bias. This function, depending on its specific capabilities and implementation, is known as electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), traction control system (TCS or ASR), emergency brake assist (BA, EBA or HBA), or electronic stability control (ESP, ESC or DSC).

Brake problem


it sounds like your disk brakes are the problem. two ways to fix the problem. champfer your brake pads or basically glue your pad to the caliper piston with some stuff called disk brake quiet. the shop probably does not want to take your whole front brake system apart again. good luck.
