1988 Ford F150 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 85000 miles
I have a 1988 Ford Econoline van with 2 fuel tanks which I have owned fron new. It has 85000 miles on it and on my annual trip I had fuel problems. I was running low on fuel on the front tank and switched to the rear tank. It would not pick up and when I switched back to the front tank, neither would it. I had it towed to a service centre and they said I had 2 faulty fuel pumps. They indicated that nthey replaced the front fuel tank pump but the rear pump was weak and if I attempted to use it I would not have the power. I am not sure if the fuel pumps are located in the tanks or are on the undercarrige next to the fuel filter. Could you tell me where the fuel pump or fuel pumps are located? I feel I was taken advantage of as I was in the midst of a vacation. Total cost not including towing was just under $800.00. Can you help? I will survive but I sure hate being taken advantage of especially in a vulnerable situation. I appreciate any information you can give me Thank you very much, a concerned senior.
have the same problem?
