Fuel Problems 95 F-150

5 posts in this topic

I have a 95' F-150 w/ a 300 six manual tranny. This winter one tank started to leak when filled too full, so we just didn't use it. Now it's spring and I ran both tanks pretty much dry, truck started to cough and I limped into town. Got about 1/4 full in each tank and I can't get it started. It almost fires when switching tanks while starting but not quite. Soo my question is: does the truck need to be running to switch tanks? and could it be a prob w/ fuel filter or fuel pump? I greatly appreciate any insight cuz i'm kickin myself for letting this happen.

Each tank should have a "lift" pump in them and there should be a high pressure pump on the frame. With the switch on the front tank have someone turn the key on while you listen at the tank. You should here a buzz for about 2 seconds. Do the same thing with the back tank. Now if you don't hear anything at either tank you could have:

bad pumps

Bad fuel pump relay

tripped inerta switch

wiring problem.

This should get you started.

When I had one, mine didn't seem to? Nor does the 96 that I have now. I just turn on the key and once powered up, I could switch from tank to tank. Maybe by running them low, some crud got into your gas line filter?

I tied FishingTech's advice and heard a buzz on both tanks and am thinking about changing the inline filter. From what I read it says disconnect battery, open fuel caps and switch pressure relief switch on driver side floor before proceeding. Guess I'll swap out the filter and hope that dose it. Thanks for any insight.

i had the same thing happen. i put more parts to it and still didn't work, so i started to jump sensors, ended up being the tps sensor. that would be the throttle position sensor.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
