Fuel Problems 95 F-150

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Game 6 of Caps and Lightning was fun to watch, even though the lightning got shut out.  Ove was a beast, really fun to watch him play like that.   Good for the Caps, I think they can nuetralize the speed of Vegas, they have some hard hitters on the team.  Hopefully Ove can kiss the cup.
    • Vegas vs Caps, we all saw that coming. 
    • Well this has been a tough season so far with this odd weather. Late winter jump into 80+ degrees.  It will be interesting to see what these next 4-5 days of 80's to 90's do to them?   Did find a few Morel's and some nice small tender Pheasant  backs last time out.
    • For the 2018 Minnesota Fishing Opener we went up to Lake Vermilion in search of Walleyes. The morning started off slow for us so we changed up the tactics and it resulted in a livewell full of walleyes, a few Slot fish and a new Personal Best!     
    • Ok, if you don't post back in a few days we know!
    • I shoot 2 steel all season long in an improved cyclinder choke . Satisfied with that. Have a buddy who shoots Black Cloud 3's with impressive results.
    • I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.  
    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
