      It is not easy, but with patience and a few select extensions, flex-head ratchet and the ability to remove some things if needed to make room, it can be done. But, yes, they are terrible for anyone to do. It is all in the tools and your confidence level.

    Having trouble filling gas tank.
    Each time I go to fill up, I have to either trickle in the fuel or the pump will constantly shut off due to back pressure of fuel (basically like when the tank is full).

      Those things that can directly restrict fuel fill include damage to any part of the filler neck or gas tank:
      1. Damaged filler neck
      2. Pinched or twisted hose between filler neck and tank
      3. One-way fill valve in tank (at the filler entrance to the tank) sticking shut
      4. Tank damaged under fill entrance to tank.

      (b) Things that can prevent proper venting include blockages anywhere in the onboard vapor recovery system:
      1. Blocked leak detection pump outlet
      2. Restricted charcoal canister filter
      3. Restricted charcoal canister itself (usually by liquid fuel in canister)
      4. Sticking vent valve (sometimes called rollover valve) in top of fuel tank
      5. Any of the vapor hoses from the tank to the canister to the leak detection pump pinched or twisted.

      One of the most common causes of blockage in the venting system is from fuel entering the vapor vent lines and directly into the charcoal canister. The liquid gasoline gets absorbed by the charcoal in the canister, causing it to swell and it blocks off the vapor vent lines. So how does a clogged canister filter prevent you from filling up with gas? The gas tank contains both fuel and air. As you fill it up, the gasoline displaces the air, and the air has to escape somehow. BUT the air that is displaced is full of gasoline vapor. Being harmful to the atmosphere, it can't just be vented directly into the air, so the vapor recovery system is set up to capture these vapors through a series of vent lines that lead to a square box full of charcoal, which absorbs the gas vapors. When the gas-soaked charcoal swells and blocks off the vent lines, it is preventing the air from escaping the tank. In order to put gas in, the air has to have some way of getting out, and the only way for it to get out is through the vent lines. The repair here involves replacing one of the components in the fuel vapor recovery system. (one-way valve in the tank, vent valve in the tank, liquid-vapor separator near the tank, carbon canister or canister close valve.) The most common first choice for repair is the canister, but the other components may well be plugged.

    Does this vehicle have a fuel filter? If so, where is it located?

      under the drive side

      what he said. most ford fuel filters are somewhere along the fuel lines under the driver's side of the vehicle.

      it may be a part of the fuel pump module and not meant to be serviced. some of the new fords seem to be going this way.

      If it will disappear after a few seconds then it’s just normal. But if it will not disappear the possible causes are low oil level or the oil pump is defective and stopped pumping.

    HOW TO OPEN HOOD WHEN THE LEVER WON'T WORK
     
    • AZogas

      This happened to me as well. I drive a 1994 Lincoln Continental. The best way for me to do it was to wedge something in the lever so that it would stay pulled. Something like a wad of paper towel or a shirt would do the trick. Following this, the easiest way was to reach up from underneath in the front. If you push up from the bottom, you can get it up so that you can use the release to open it all the way. Hope this helps. I recently got mine fixed, boy was it worth it when the winter comes around.

      It is possible that you brake caliper piston is sticking or your wheel nut is loose or damaged. Also diagnose your vehicle with a scan tool to know what if there is a stored trouble code in your vehicle. And to narrow down the possible causes of your vehicle’s trouble.
