I just got quote from dealer 16k to replace fuel system due to rust in tank. I have heard that there was a recall for the truck because of vent lines on tank were missing. does anyone know anything about this. I am not paying them to do it. they say everything from tank all lines pumps and cleaning cylinders. help:banghead::banghead::banghead:

The only recall I know of was for the roll over vent on the tank. they fixed mine. not sure if it would cause rust in the tank or not.

Not a recall,a rapid response and then a customer satisfaction notice f-19.

Water in the tank bad enough to bypass the fuel filter is extreme.I also notice you have an aftermarket tank.....good luck,you can turn it into your insurance company.I have had many insurance adjusters pay on these claims

the aux tank was filtered going into the side tank. i talked with someone else that said there was a recall on the vent hose on the tank. i noticed that my tank does not have a vent hose but the vent is there.

i just looked in the fenderwell behind the filler hose or feel back there, there is either a hose or not. you can see it. there should also be another hose on the vent on the front.

I would stay away for the ATF. People like to use it for the strong detergents in it but it actually helps water bypass the water separator/fuel filter and deposit it in the injection system.

Where you having any issues before the rust was found?

if its a bad idea to use atf then what would be the next best thing to use to help pass or break up the deposit. before the rust was found the only thing i would say it did was you could hear a cycling sound while running, but it never really bothered me.
