View Full Version : rear tank over flowing????
04-07-2009, 12:54 AM
walking out to my truck(90 f-250 5.0L) after l got off work l saw a new gas stain on the road and the mud under my rear fuel door was wet so l took off the cap and gas came pouring out.
l syfened out a bunch into my jerry can and left for home, after scratching my head for a bit.
when l got home l opened the door again and it blead off vapour.
l was running on my front tank and what l am thinking is insted of the gas returing to the front tank it is getting pumped into the rear????
has anyone ever heared of this? or have a fuel system diagram?

Sounds like a one way check valve is stuck open.

I'ld say that your tank selector isn't switching the return line.

will let you know how it works out
check the vent maybe there was a pressure build up . was it sitting in the sun?

not realy l filled it up befor work at around 1:00pm and saw it over flowing at 11:00pm.
just got back from driving around on the rear tank and it sure as hell is over flowing again.bat1bat1
l am about ready to throw a match at it.
also have another drivability isue that l am trying to work out. unrelated. ball joints or wheel bearings or somthing.

ok l am beginning to think that the evap system isn't working causing a preassure build up and the only vent would be through the filler cap.
because l after l shut the truck off and syphoned about 30L out of the tank. l came back a few houres later and opened the cap again and sure enough there was a hissing comming from it.
could be the breather clogged up?
or is that too simple
hows the front bumper?

had a same problem with a customers truck last month
it was the switching vavle filling the rear tank
put a new valve in and it was problem solved

been working all through the day the past few so l havent had a chance to cheeck it out. hope to have it figgured out this weekend.
front bumper is pulled away from the fraim alittle where l put the strap though 2 weeks ago. any one know where there is a tree l can use to push it back in with?

well drove around all day today on the front tank with no problems and havent ran out of gas yet so l am guessing that the return lines are in proper working order and just the rear tank isn't venting.
