why does front fuel tank leak gas?
i have a 1986 f-150 xlt lariat after driving a few miles ive noticed leaking of gas from the
front tank if i open the gas cap gas and air shoot out about 1/2 a gallon ive noticed a
small crack in the tank i use the rear tank which is all newly replaced but fuel is alwas
being sent to the front. what to do?
also i see a crack on the back of the nozzle that also makes the gas leak which looks like an easy fix but isnt all of my problem
Did you find the fix to this problem? My 1986 F150 has the same problem. I've owned the truck for many years, but I don't drive it much and keep it in the garage. It just has 150K miles. Problem first started when I noticed a vacuum release with the front tank when I removed the cap to fill, now tank pressure is so much that gas blows by the new cap. I want to know how to fix this dangerous problem.
I have 1978 ford f150 that has a hole near the top and to the right of the fuel sending unit if you're looking from the front of the vehicle. The hole presses against a pad on the frame or the pad was on the tank and has now stuck to the frame. It appear that when I reinstall the tank it will seal off. Does anyone have any knowledge about this design and can verify that my idea is accurate?
