Good question! Have you been using any odd biofuel? this is probably the first thing Ford will ask you .In 40 years of fixing cars, I never had this problem.

V7 fuel pump replacement

V70, right? Is it diesel or gasoline?

This hint is for diesel models (maybe for gasoline ones too):
Under the right back seat and under the carpit you will find a black PVC cover. Remove it and you will find a cap. You can twist it (reverse clockwise) to open. Inside you will find the Bosch pump in a PVC can.

Anyway, in the diesel models there is no fuel pump between the tank and the filter/engine. The gasoline feeder sucks the oil from the tank directly. The small fuel pump in the tank serves if the level is low it can sucks from left to right part of the tank where starts the feeding tube towards the engine.

Had some gas in a can, so i poured maybe a gallon of it in my tank to make it to station. then found out it was diesel fuel. i only drove it a block and noticed it tryin 2 boggle out on me so i parked it....

Diesel should not hurt your car as long as you did not put to much in your tank. I would recommend that you buy a good bottle of octane booster dump it in your tank then fill it up with a high octane full like 91 octane. That should make up for the difference. Your car may smoke a little bit until all of the diesel is out of your system but it should be fine after that. I hope this helps and if you have any other questions please feel free to ask.

Where is the fuel pump located?

The fuel pump is inside the tank and is accessed from the top of the tank, so you'll have to remove the tank.
Disconnect the battery.
Remove the filler cap.
Drain the fuel from the tank(retighten drain plug to 20Nm - 14lbf after draining)
Remove the right hand rear fender liner.
Remove the tank under cover fixing bolts and remove the cover.
Disconnect tank wiring.
Disconnect the piping at the tank(Fuel filler, evap hoses, air breather hose).
The fuel supply and release lines are quick release. Supply has 2 tabs that need to be squeezed before the pipe can be pulled apart. The return line has a square block that needs to be pressed to split the line. The fuel lines may have residual pressure inside so cover with a cloth when releasing so you dont end up with fuel in your eyes. When refitting lightly coat with oil to aid assembly.
You can now undo the tank fixing bolts and remove the tank.(When refitting tighten to 36 Nm - 27lbf)
Once you have the tank on the ground you can remove the pump by undoing the fixing screws and withdrawing it from the tank.

My 2008 toyota tundra ran out of gas i went and got gas, put the gas in but it wont start

I believe that the engine fitted into your vehicle is diesel fueled....Once this type of engine runs out of fuel, it is necessary to 'bleed' the system and remove all air from the fuel line
  • Open the bonnet (hood)
  • On top of the fuel filter housing is a flat silver metal plunger which must be pumped until it becomes hard.
  • Once the air has been removed, the engine should start.

I have a 98 Chevy 2500 4x4 (Z71) with the 7.4L 454. I have replaced the fuel pump 3 times in the past year and a half or so. Any idea why they keep failing?

I would look at a number of possibilities. The first would be to look for kinks or obstructions in the lines, especially at bends. Change the fuel filter. Check the electrical connections and wire harness for corrosion or bare wires. Repair whatever you find and use some die-electric grease on the connections or spray them with Rust Check. Use the green can.Make sure the ground at the tank is making good contact, shiny metal to shiny metal. Clean the inside of the tank and make sure nothing is left inside or falls in during re-installation. Change the rubber connecting line on the joints with steel lines. Sometimes the inside of the rubber line will collapse. Hope this helps.

Put diesel fuel in on accident pumped fuel out from fuel line in front of filter, filled up truck with regular fuel now runs bad and fuel pump is on continuous when running and pump ismaking loud noise

The diesel fuel is not a good lubricant for the pump and plugged the sock inside the tank replace the fuel pump and sock also pull spark plugs and clean I am sure it is running like ******* the diesel coats the plugs so they won't fire without being cleaned. Gas is much thinner than diesel and the gas lubricates the pump once the diesel washed off the bearings in the pump if most likely finished off a pump about to go anyway.17 years is a long time for new pump to last and in 92 they were not putting in the junk they are now in our fuels. If you need more help or want a price on the pump let me know.

I need to know the color code of my 2000 ford f150 radio

Look in the driver's side door jamb. There should me a sticker with the details of your truck.

At the bottom you'll see EXT PNT:

Mine says EXT PNT: SU

I believe SU is the the color code. You can probably order the paint from the dealer, or any good paint supplier can get you the equivalent.

Remember that paint can fade and change color over time, so if you're not a pro painter, blending the bright, new color will be very hard to do; you might as well just paint the entire panel or the whole truck if you're not already going to.

Draining fuel tank

My son in law had exactly the same problem, he called out his roadside assistance, what the did was to take him to a garage, they used a small pump with a pipe to get down into his fuel tank thro' the filler, pumped it all out and refilled with diesel, they may also have changed his fuel filter, no problem. jonbangor
