My truck has 2 gas tanks, I try to swich the tanks but it only sucks gas out of the rear tank it doesn't matter what the selecter is on what could be the problem?


I have an '87 Ford F150 just like it and have the same problem too. Most likely the front fuel tank's internal fuel pump is not working. The selector switch sends power to the fuel pump in the selected tank, which then pumps fuel to the high pressure pump mounted on the frame ahead of the dual fuel reservoir also mounted on the frame.
Typical ford junk engineering - quality job NONE!!!

Ethanol really causes problems in cars that sit around.Thanks for us going green huh?It decomposes non-metal parts in the gas system.If the car sits around for something like 6 weeks the gas does go bad.You have to siphon the tank as much as possible.When filling up,add octane boost first then gas.It still may not work though.I did all that for a scooter and it still didn't work.So if you try it,when you add gas,probably only use 4 or 5 gallons,so you don't waste too much money if it doesn't work,and it is enough to mix the octane boost fairly well.Good luck bro'!That's all i have for now.And gas is gas no matter where you buy it.All those additives the companies claim clean this or that is just sales.Since fuel injection came out,companies are required to add a certain amount of detergent to keep injectors clean anyways.And 93 octane is not better than 87 octane enough to pay 20 cents more per gallon.

87 f150 dual tanks fuel gauge doesn't work how can I troubleshoot this with a multimeter; what voltages/ohms values are normal


I have a1987 F-150. The gas gauge for the rear tank always indicate that the tank is full when I know it is not. I try to put gas in but the tank won't let any gas in. Is there some type of sensors inside the tank that won't allow the tank to be filled or is this a guage problem?

How to replace fuel pump on a 2002 ford E-150 van in my driveway.


With a jack under the gas tank...unbolt the gas tank and lower the tank 8 to 10 inches until you can reach the small bolts ( in a 6 inch circle ) that fasten the fuel pump to the top of gas tank. You might need to remove hoses to tank to lower. Disconnect electrical lines to fuel pump and remove.
