    My Explorer is pissing gas everywhere... The two nipples that come out of the tank sending unit that connect to the lines are completely rusted off.

    Where can i get a new one cheap? Autozone, Advance, etc, nobody has one. Checked Online Ford Parts, no dice.

    Being that its 2 weeks away from Christmas, im broke as a joke. I need one cheap.

    What to do?!

    The fittings you are looking for are part of the sending unit. Arround hear a sending unit and pump are about $120.

    dont go through all the trouble of dropping the tank only to replace the fuel pump and sending unit with a cheapo or used unit, too many times the cheapo pumps fail, then you have to drop the tank again.
    Get it from Carquest, Napa or Ford, worth the extra $10-20 IMO, I have replaced quite a few Ford fuel pumps in my day...........
