Q: 1982 Ford F 150 gas and starting issues

asked by on

I bought a 82 ford f150 pickup has almost 90000 miles on it and seemed to do fine when I drove it home but then went to get gas and its a 2 gas tank truck and i tried filling up both tanks and after few seconds of gas pumping it started spitting gas out and I know truck is not full? Also I went to check transmission fluid and had it running in park with parking brake on and ran through gears to warm up fluid and the truck died and now won't start?

My car has 90000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
