Ford Mechanic: John Vieira, Ford Mechanic replied 1 year ago

yes, it could be a tank switch. As far as the gauge not reading correctly. Or switching to the other tank.

I wouldn't call it just the tank switch as the problem, I would be certain that I have gas in both tanks and then try to start the vehicle then check the fuel pressure, do you have a way to do this test, if its got fuel pressure and it still wont start then i would be looking at the ignition system. Ignition timing, there are plenty of things that can make it not start. The fuel level gauge combined with not starting doesn't mean its a tank switch that's the problem, it could be these other things I mentioned.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
