Powerstroke Turbo Diesel FUEL TANK and SENDER Information


I once had a person on Powerstroke.org tell me the fuel pump was located in the fuel tank. This type of mis-information seems to be a regular thing over there. Anyway I hope to help people out whom may be considering pulling the gas tank. I have had to remove mine more than once to deal with contamination.

Unlike the early model trucks the fuel sender has a new design. Helping to keep problems away. What I hear about these units is that the fuel level float rod is made of steel and can sometimes rust and break. This will cause the fuel gauge to quit working.

The gas tank is made of plastic and the sender is held into the gas tank by a large plastic ring-nut. You will need a blunt chisle to work it free and they also sell a special spanner wrench for this as well. There is also a rubber o-ring to be mindful of when pulling this unit out.

Here are some photos of the fuel tank and sender.

Hope these photos help others. Let me know if there are any questions.

Contamination huh?  What were the symptoms that lead you to that conclusion?

I think that would be somewhat obvious.

Ever think of getting a user account 6.0 Doc? Or have you been banned for being a dip stick in the past?

He's quite well, you haven't met him yet and probably won't.  He deals with things on a much higher level and doesn't deal with micromanaging local issues and harassing boneheads.

He leaves that to us.
