Hello and welcome, My name is ***** ***** I will be working with you on the issue ar hand.

Expert:  John Vieira replied 2 months 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.
