Do you have power at the inertia switch dark green and yellow wire? If so do below-fuel pump turns on, the switch is no good-

Okay direct power to the fuel pump from battery

I am having a problem of my truck running fine for a few days then it takes a spell that it will not run at all.
The check engine ligfht will come on and the truck will act as if it is flooding, I also noticed that when it does this I can not shift it from overdrive.
I have replaced, plugs, plugwires, relays and even had a new gastank put on due to some leakage.
I have also noticed that there is the smell of unburned gas coming from tailpipe.
Sometimes it will be intermidite and you can hear a clicking coming from under the hood on the drivers side. Any ideas?

I dropped the fuel tank again and checked for continuity through the four prong plug. Tested good although one of the connections on the fuel tank side looks like it is melted. So I run a new wire to the fuel pump and replaced the fuel pump while I was at it now the truck runs great!

Thanks for your help :)

I have a 95 F-150 with 125K mi on it. Recently while driving in traffic I noticed that my truck would try to shut off when I let off the brakes in gear. I had heard in the past that Ford is notorious for having issues with its Idle Air Control Valve. It is a valve that sits on the left side of the throttle body. Take it off, clean it with throttle body, not carb cleaner and put it back on. If you problem still persists, take it back off, leave it plugged in. Have a buddy turn the ignition to the RUN position and observe the inside of the valve it should move, if it doesn't you will need to try to clean it better or all out replace it. They run about 39.99 from AutoZone. If it still doesn't work, post back on here.

I have two gas tanks and the rear tank pump seems to be intermittent in working. When it does work, I can only use it if I switch to it at high speed as it will not work if there is any strain on the motor. How difficult is it to replace the fuel filter. Can I do it myself? Do I need any special tools. What should I expect to pay for a fuel filter? New? Rebuilt? Used?

Thanks,
Jim

Sorry, I meant replacing the pump. I assume it is not a filter problem as then it would affect both tanks. Correct?

Yes most likely. To replace the fuel pump you have to drop that fuel tank down. Then there is a lock ring on top of tank that has to be rotated counterclockwise to release the pump. No specialty tools are required and a new fuel pump costs around $150 for new

Hello my name is Dave.

So did you get it running? If not check the inertia switch, it's in the right kick panel. It's not uncommon for them to get kicked and throw, you should see an arrow on the cover pointing to the button, reach in and make sure the button is down.

Fuel pump is pumping fuel in each tank one at a time. Seem to be working correctly. It isn't building enough pressure on the fuel rail. Fuel runs on fuel rail then back down return to tank never building up enough pressure. Turn switch on w/o cranking fuel pump doesn't build enough pressure to cut off.I have replaced fuel regulator already any suggestions?

FUEL DELIVERY Fuel Pump Relay See MODULES, MOTORS, RELAYS & SOLENOIDS. Fuel Pump Testing 1. Visually inspect entire fuel delivery system for leaks, damaged or kinked lines and hoses. Ensure battery is fully charged and fuses are okay. Ensure adequate fuel is available in fuel tank. Release fuel pressure. See FUEL SYSTEM PRESSURE RELEASE . Install fuel pressure gauge. With Key On Engine Off (KOEO) to activate pump, check and record fuel pressure. For fuel pressure specifications, see FUEL PRESSURE SPECIFICATIONS article. Proceed to appropriate step, as indicated: If fuel pressure is within specification, go to step 2). If fuel pressure is zero, go to step 5). If fuel pressure is low, go to step 11). If fuel pressure is high, go to step 12). 2. Check fuel injectors. See FUEL CONTROL. Crank or run engine. Using a mechanic's stethoscope, listen for regularly spaced operating sounds at each injector. If sound is present, check fuel injectors for flow and leakage. Clean or replace injectors as necessary. 3. If injector operating sound is not present, check fuel injector resistance. See FUEL CONTROL. If injector is not within specification, replace as necessary. If injector is within specification, check injector electrical connections for continuity to ECA. If no continuity exists in circuit, check for 12 volts at each injector lead. 4. If voltage is not present at injector, see Quick Test procedure in TESTS W/CODES article in the ENGINE PERFORMANCE Section. Faults in injector circuit should set a service code. If no service code has been set, see CIRCUIT TEST H in TESTS W/CODES article in the ENGINE PERFORMANCE Section. 5. If fuel pressure is zero, ensure battery is fully charged and key is off. Ground fuel pump lead. Using a jumper lead, ground FP terminal at SELF-TEST connector. See Fig. 8 . Ensure connection is okay at pump/sender unit. Turn ignition on, engine off. Listen for sound of fuel pump running. If pump is running, proceed to next step. If fuel pump is not running, proceed to step 7).

If filter is free of contamination check fuel NOTE: For fuel pressure specifications, see FUEL PRESSURE SPECIFICATIONS article. NOTE: For fuel system pressure testing and fuel pressure specifications, see BASIC TESTING article in the ENGINE PERFORMANCE Section.

pressure regulator, go to step 12). If filter is contaminated, replace filter and recheck system pressure as outlined in step 1). 7. Turn ignition off and disconnect fuel pump/sender or high pressure pump connector. Set DVOM on 200-ohm scale. Measure resistance between pump ground at connector and chassis ground. If resistance is one ohm or more, repair open circuit to ground. If resistance is less than one ohm, go to next step. 8. Ensure ignition is off and battery is fully charged. Disconnect harness connector from pump/sender unit. Ground FP terminal at SELF-TEST connector. With KOEO and DVOM on 20-volt scale, measure voltage at Pump Power terminal of pump/sender or high pressure pump connector. If voltage is 10.5 volts or more, replace pump/sender assembly. If voltage is not as specified, go to next step. 9. With KOEO, check voltage at fuel pump inertia switch. If voltage is 10.5 volts or more at both inertia switch terminals, repair wire between inertia switch and pump. If voltage is not as specified, reset or replace inertia switch as necessary and go to next step. 10. Ensure ignition is off and battery is fully charged. Ground FP terminal at SELF-TEST connector. With KOEO and DVOM on 20-volt scale, measure voltage at fuel pump relay (Brown wire). If voltage is 10.5 volts or more at relay, repair Brown wire between fuel pump relay and inertia switch. If voltage is not as specified, check voltage supply to fuel pump relay and to terminal No. 1 at ECA. For additional circuit testing information see CIRCUIT TEST J in TESTS W/CODES article in the ENGINE PERFORMANCE Section. 11. Ground FP terminal at SELF-TEST connector. Using a DVOM, check voltage at fuel pump terminal (Pink/Black wire). If voltage at fuel pump is within .5 volt of battery voltage, go to step 6). If voltage is not as specified, go to step 5). 12. Check engine compartment vacuum hose for leaks and ensure engine produces normal engine vacuum. See appropriate FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR test procedure. Fuel Pressure Regulator (Gasoline) 1. Ensure key is off. Connect fuel pressure gauge to Schrader valve on fuel rail. Ensure manifold vacuum supply tube is connected to fuel pressure regulator. Start and run engine for 10 seconds. Stop engine and wait 10 seconds. Start and operate engine for 10 seconds. Stop engine and remove pressure regulator vacuum hose. See Fig. 9 . Check vacuum port for fuel. Fig. 9: Identifying Fuel Pressure Regulator Components Courtesy of FORD MOTOR CO. 2. If fuel is present, replace fuel pressure regulator and repeat test. If fuel is not present, start and run engine for 30 seconds. Stop engine and check fuel pressure gauge. If fuel pressure does not drop, go to step 4). If fuel pressure drops more than 5 psi (.4 kg/cm 2 ) in 60 seconds, disconnect and plug fuel return line at engine. Cycle ignition key on and off until normal fuel pressure is obtained. 3. Turn key off and check fuel pressure gauge. If gauge drops more than 5 psi (.4 kg/cm 2 ) in 30 seconds, replace high pressure fuel pump (dual pump system) or fuel sender/pump assembly (single pump type). If gauge does not drop more than 5 psi (.4 kg/cm 2 ) in 30 seconds, replace CAUTION: Inspect fuel system for leaks or damage before testing fuel pump.
fuel pressure regulator. 4. Ensure key is off. Relieve fuel pressure. Remove fuel pressure regulator. Check "O" ring, gasket and mounting surfaces for cracks, cuts or other damage. Connect vacuum pump to fuel return tube and apply 20 in. Hg. If maximum vacuum loss exceeds 10 in. Hg in 10 seconds, replace regulator. If maximum vacuum loss does not exceed 10 in. Hg in 10 seconds, recheck entire fuel delivery system for cause of fuel pressure loss.

Hello,

Ok, you have 3 fuel pumps on your truck one in each tank which are Low Pressure Pumps. Then on the inside frame rail I believe under driver seat area is the 3rd pump which is a High Pressure Pump. The high pressure pump is most likely bad.

My inertia switch has 3 wires one has 12 volts constant KOEO, and two wires that go to battery voltage when key is started cranked over and then drop to 6.5.
Both those wire also seem to be touching.
I did a continuity test and they both seem to be the same wire. Is this how it should be?
