All- I applogize if this has been posted before. I did few searches, and
tried to weed through the posts, but I didin't find anything... Anyways.. I
just bought a 94 F150, and after filling the gas tanks, we were driving
home.. i noticed particurlly poor gas milage. upon getting home i found
that gas was flowing from the fill spout (the gas cap was on and tight).
I'm wondering what could be causing this. (there are two tanks on the
truck, the rear is the problem, the front seems fine) Is it as simple as a
bad gas cap, or are there bigger issues further down the line? The truck
ran fine (no hesitation, or low power or anything) Any help anyone can give
would be greatly Apprecitated. let me know if you need more info.
sound like the selecter valve is not working/jammed the fuel pump must be
pumping fuel from the front tank to the motor and the rear tank and
check the attachment it will look close as this is an aftermarket one
certainly sounds possible... where abouts on a truck would a guy find the
selector valve? i would guess in the vacinity of the tanks? And how much of
a pain in the tail is it to get to? I can't imagin that i'd be lucky enough
to have it be there in the open... thanks for the help!
maybe between the tanks or in front of the front tank along the frame you
should see it right away there's six lines 2 for the front 2 for the back
and 2 to the motor the larger hose is the main and the smaller is the
return from the injector rail at the engine
there's one more posiblite that the selectors been changed and the return line for the wrong tank was put on the wrong fitting
i'll take a peak and see what i can see... thanks for all your help!!!
ford has a safety recall on this problem i have installed arount 1,500 kits
(major problem) call the ford dealership and have your VIN number handy the
fix is most likely free to you
