Customer Question
I have a 96...

I have a 96 3/4 Ford, power stroke , dual tanks . Driving ... Have front tank... 1/4 full... Back tank full... Switch to back tank full .... Gauges go to over full... Ran about 70 miles ... Ran out of fuel ... Put fuel in front tank ... Starts.... Runs good... But have to much pressure on fuel lifting fuel filter cap... Buy another filter... Same thing... Buy a frame... Works bot lines starting leaking fuel tighten lines , hoses , and stop leaking ... Now another place is leaking... Gauges not working ... Looks I have to much fuel pressure.... Gauges not working .... What is the problem or do you have a recall to fix problem.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, can you actually see the leak?

Yes , at first it was just flowing from filter, than from line ... Now we have a small leak but afraid that if I stop that leak , what will happen. I would like for gauges to work

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '96 Ford?

Ford 250 3/4 xlt

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your E250 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Replace the fuel filter because pressure was stripping filter cap ... Finally a frame filter work... Tighten fuel lines and now have one place leaking with pressure . And gauges not working

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.
