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.
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.

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.
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 http://www.carparts.com/REPLACEMENT-GAS-TANK-FILLER-NECK/GP_2005706_N__10618.car
