I am having an issue with by club wagon and am looking for some suggestion. I have tried taking this to a local ford dealer, but if you can’t plug something into it that tells you what is wrong and how to fix it…they are lost.
This vehicle has dual tanks. The front tank doesn’t work (and never has since I purchased it a couple of years ago…bad fuel pump I am guessing}.
A couple of months ago the fuel pump went out on the rear tank and I had it replaced. I now have a peculiar problem. Fuel is coming out of the front tank fill spout when the engine is running. There seems to be a tremendous amount of pressure building up in the front tank…even though I am not using it. I would seem as though fuel is being pumped out of the rear tank and into the front tank to a certain pressure point, and then on to the engine. One solution would seem to be to remove the front tank completely from the system, but I don’t know how to do that, or if it should be done. After driving and coming to a stop, fuel is pouring out through the gas cap on the front tank. I. Don’t need to use the front tank as I am just using this as a work truck.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
