Gas spits back out when pumping

When I pump gas into the tank, after two seconds it comes spitting back out at me. Is this a float problem? I've tried snaking it to push the float out of the way, and it works for the next pump...when I pump a little at a time. The next time I try to put gas into it, it's back to the same situation with spitting back at me.

Help!

    This is the exact situation I have and its getting worse over time. How can I fix this myself? Is it expensive if i take it somewhere?

    It only happens in the cold weather...In the summer months it doesn't happen. I can pump for a few seconds then it spits out.

In my case it was the vent hose coming from the rollover valve that was clogged. Exhaust and tank dropped to access. I replaced rollover vent valve, cleared the line and all is good. Sometimes it is a faulty evap canister or bad vsv.

2003 kia Sorento gas keeps spitting back out when I try to fuel up


There's usually a flap on the fill tube below the gas cap. Try to put the pump handle past the flap, and slowly pull the pump handle to fill the tank.

If whiel you are pmping fuel into tank and it spits back, the venting system or rubber hose leadign for filler neck to tank is manfuncting. Look under vehicle and see if it is twisted or misaligned.

The tire shake may be a tire that is out of balance or a bad outer tie rod end. The tank has pressure on it and when you take the cap off the pressure is relieved. Try putting the nozzle in not so far in to pump gas.

Can't get gas to go in tank, and it will spit out gas


Every gas tank has a vent tube, so when you fill the tank, air can escape, while the fuel is being pumped into the tank. Some vent tubes are metal, some rubber. Yours is either collapsed or plugged up. Look at the fill tube in the firebird and follow it from the gas cap to the tank, there should be a 2nd smaller tube that is your vent tube. Check to see if it's collapsed, pinched, or bent. This is definitely your problem. Check out this web site for pictures of different fill and vent tubes to get an idea of what to look for. Good luck let me know how you make out. Curt

there is a breather pipe running long the filler pipe, if u look at the furl cap there should be a small hole that lets out air as u fill up, i think that this is blocked .

You can at least talk to the dealer and have them look at it or something.
