Fuel Problems Econoline 350 cargo van

Asked by Jul 27, 2010 at 08:00 PM about the Ford Econoline Cargo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have no fuel to my cargo van, I have started to pull the front tank. Rear tank has not worked since before I owned it. It had to be rimed for some time and then it would run. Now it will not start passed burning the starter fluid. I found a relay on the drivers inner fender well but not sure if this is the correct relay. It is not black like I read in other posts. It is white and is attached to a metal bracket that screws to the inside engine bay fender.

Can anyone tell me if this is the fuel relay? Also I am wondering if my truck has a rail fuel pump. I can't seem to get much help. There is something on the rail but I am wondering what that is. The fuel filter perhaps but something else is there, part of the front rear tank switching mech? I have no power going to my front fuel pump connections when the key is on. I have not found any bad fuses.

Where is the fuel pump relay located?  How can I know if there is a rail pump?
How is the tank grounded as it is held by straps in place?  Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
