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.

    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
