Subject: Hesitation on easy acceleration

Hi list,
            I have a problem. When cruising at interstate speeds my 5.0
loves it, but slow down and exit to a regular street or highway and ease the
pedal down to regain speed from approx. 25 - 45 mph and I get a bucking
reaction, like a plug or a wire or two. Under heavier pedal pressure, it most
likely will not do this trick. I changed the plugs and wires, and kept the
favorite 7-8 apart. Would something like this show up on a code reader??  The
truck really runs good other than this little dilemma.
Any suggestions ??

You didn't mention what year this truck is but if it's EFI then it could
through a code if the problem is something like a bad spot on the throttle
position sensor or a sticking EGR.  If this is a 95 or 96 5.0 then it's 1 &
3 and 5 & 6 that you need to keep separated, however I don't think that's
the problem.

This problem affects ALL the 1992-1996 F150s with the 5.0, not just the
1995-1996.

Did they change the firing order 92? For some reason I was thinking it
changed in 95.

Subject: Dual tank questions
Date: Wed, 21 Mar 2001 09:23:48 -0700


Greetings,

I'm putting in an extra gas tank in my 1980 F-250 and have a couple
questions.  I'm putting in the tank that goes behind the axle.

First, is there any part of the top of the tank that protrudes above the
frame rails?  In other words, if I took a board and laid it across the top
of the frame rails and slid it over the tank, is there any place that I
would bump into the tank?  I ask this because there is no bed on the truck
right now and I'd like to get that all worked out before I try to put the
bed on.  Also, I still need to fabricate and install the top straps for the
tank.

Second, are the two leads that go to the sensor on the tank just +12V in and
nV out, where n is a voltage value based on the position of the sensor
float?  I ask this to see if I could just make the energized lead to the
tank common to both of them.  That way when I switch between front and rear
tanks I only have to switch one wire from each tank for the gauge.

Thanks in advance,

Chip

Subject: 88 E-350 fuel trouble

hello everyone,

Some of ya may know me from a few other lists, but I needed to bring my
problem to the right forum.  My dad has an 88 E-350 w the 460 EFI.  We have
been having continuing problems with the rear fuel pump going out, and it
looks as though its done it again.  They seem to last about 6000 miles, and
then quit.  At one point we also replaced the switch box that both tanks pump
into.  It had gone bad, and we thought it was killing the pump by not letting
it flow fuel properly.  Any ideas on what my problem could be? this is pump
#4, and quite honestly Im getting SICK of replacing pumps.  Especially since
dad has this thing about filling the tank after the pump quits, to be sure
its not empty.  Not just 4 or 5 gallons though, flippin topped off!  Just one
more headache to deal with.

On a side note, he mentioned that with the AC on, it seemed to vaporlock the
other day.  I thought it was impossible for a fuel injected motor to do that,
but with this truck anything goes.  Some ideas on this are much appreciated.

I love my Fords, you can ask anyone, but I tell you this 88 has been the
biggest POS Ive ever had the joy of working on.  Please help me figure this
thing out.  Dad wont spend the $$ to build a carburated motor, so its up to
me to make this thing work.

Darrell & Tweety
