drop spare tire, look for the 2 nuts holding up the gas tank straps up on tank. put a jack under tank with a large piece of plywood so not to poke hole in tank loosen 2 bolts so straps are now lose ,you may have to bend or remove the straps. lower tank very slowly enough so you can get hold of connection on fuel lines which require special tool to remove fuel fittings unplug wires in a harness from fuel pump you may have to pry them off as the clip onto gas pump. Or simply remove bed which is 6 bolds , and remove tail lights so bulbs will go down bed and drop out of the way and unhook fuel tube from bed maybe 3 or 4 screws and then have 2 saw horse placed in rear of truck and have 4 Friends pickup bed and step back and set bed on saw horse. this way is a lot easier to repair or replace fuel tank.. To start doing this go to car wash and spray under truck really good and spry nuts afterwords with WD40 or similar rustbuster.

does a 93 f150 have a 1piece rear main seal

it is located in the fuel tank. Remove the rear seat and you will find a blanking plug and on removal will reveal it.

The fuel filter on a 1990 ford F150 is located on the rear left side. It should be right between where the cab of the truck and the bed meet. I just changed mine a couple months ago. Just follow the fuel lines you cant miss the filter

The fuel pump in a 1993 Escort is located in the fuel pump. There should be an access plate under the rear seat to get to the top of the fuel tank for pump removal.

It is located on the drivers side of the vehicle, below seating area, rear of engine, mounted on the frame rail in fuel line.

sounds like your rear tank needs cleaning,and so does the fuel line from reaf tank and the rear/front tank switch that is located in the fuel line on the left side chassis rail might try new fuel fliter before all this and see if that fixes problem.

If your wondering why you get better fuel economy in the front tank is because it is an over flow tank. That mean when your running on the rear tank your are actually dumping fuel into the front tank when ever you hit your breaks hard and the engine also returns fuel to the front tank that isn't needed from the rear. that is why you get better millage on the front tank and worse on the rear tank.

The fuel filter is behind the right rear tire. To access you need to remove the right rear back tire. If you plan to change the fuel filter it is a good idea to disconnect the fuel filter relay and start motor until it stalls. Also, disconnect battery prior to fuel filter removal.

Fuel pump should be located inside the fuel tank. Dropping the fuel tank is required for removal of fuel pump. Earlier fuel injected models, fuel pump is mounted at the rear of the vehicle outside of the gas tank. (Usually located on the frame rail)

Removal # NOTE: When removing the rear brake disc (2C026) in this procedure it is not necessary to disconnect the hydraulic lines. Remove the rear disc brake caliper (2552). For additional information, refer to Caliper in this section. # NOTE: If the rear brake disc binds on the rear parking brake shoe and linings, remove the adjustment hole access plug and contract the parking brake shoe and lining. Remove the rear brake disc.

You probably have a bad front tank fuel pump or you could have something wrong in the switch valve or selector switch, or even a problem in the wiring to the front fuel pump, but most likely a bad fuel pump.

Remove the tire and hammer on the front of the drum until it comes loose. 99% of the time, rust is holding it on super tight.

Check wiring harness under vehicle and under left rear tailights
