I have a 1988 F-150 300 - six cyl engine, fuel injected, 4WD, manual
tranny, pickup truck.
I'm not getting fuel to the engine.
hear the fuel pump in the gas tank run.
This could be gas line freezeup, because it was bitter cold when it quit
running. I was going down the highway about 50mph when it just quit.
This was after driving about 40 miles. I tried to restart it, it
started and ran for a half minute and would not start at all after that.
The gas tank was half full, I poured in 3 more gallons just to be sure
the gauge was not stuck or wrong. It WILL run for a brief time when I
pour some gas in the intake, so it's not electrical, and definately IS a
Someone said that some of these trucks have a second HI-Pressure fuel
pump on the frame, under where the drivers feet are inside the truck.
(plus the one in the tank). Because the truck is not here, I can not
check, nor do I really know what I'd be looking for. I cant understand
why it would need TWO pumps.
I looked on the web, but could not determine if it does, since most of
what I found was pretty generic info, or for the wrong year truck. Is
this possible? Why would there be 2 pumps, and what does it look like
if there is one?
Thanks for all help.
