When my pontiac 2001 gets below empty and runs completely out of gas,why is it hard to start when gas is put in it. it will not even turn over. it takes a couple of hours for it to start and thats after i...


you never want to run your car completely empty,, the sludge and floating **** sits usually at the bottom of the tank and will clog everything,, injectors, fuel filters, and even at times the gas pickup inside the tank itself. if It was mine, I would change the filter first of all, then,, (when this happens) just turn the key to the on position, listen for a slight clicking noise,, that would be your fuel pump trying to bring gas to the right place. it takes time since it has to fill the lines and as you see recycles the air out of the line. turn the key off and do it again,, once the sound is gone, try starting it,,

2001 Durango acts like the gas tank is full during filling cutting off the pump. The only way to fill tank is to pump gas really slow


Chrysler and Dodge have a fuel vapor filter that allows air out of the gas tank but filters the harmful fumes. Usually the problem happens from topping off your gas after the gas pump stops due to the automatic shut off and then putting more gas in the tank (to make the bill an even $50. or to the next $5 increment, or pumping more in just because it fits). Anyway the filter gets saturated with gas, is not able to breath, and causes a vacuum in the tank. Because of this, the anti-siphon ball is not able to float around and sits at the opening of the fuel fill tube and won't allow any more gas to be put in (acts like the car is full). If you pump super duper slow like put a nickel to hold the gas pump handle, it will trickle in without a problem, but it takes forever! Solution, get the filter replaced and don't over fill the tank.

Gas gauge is not reading correctly. Shows a full


the problem is caused by a defective gas gauge sending unit, this part is located inside the gas tank, you must remove the gas tank to replace it.

2004 hyundai accent. trouble filling gas tank


I have a 2005 Hyundai Accent, It is not possible to fill the tank if you are letting the petrol pump run at full speed.Trying to fill up quickly it will only build up pressure and cut off. Next time you fill up just pull the petrol pump handle half way, it will take longer to fill but you wont get the blow back. Modern petrol pumps are getting quicker all the time.Hope this helps you.

E FLASHES AS IF EMPTY BUT HAS A FULL TANK OF GAS


I would check the float in the tank. I have this same problem on a Ford van. The float got a leak and filled full of gas, making it stay at the bottom of the tank and showing that it is empty. The fix is to replace the float, which unfortunately is a big problem, as you have to drop the tank or cut a hole in the bottom of the trunk or floor in the van like I did, so I could keep working on it, with a full tank.

You might want to check that this is how your fuel is measured, as some of them are electronic, so you might have to replace the whole fuel pump assy to be able to replace the sensor. You should be able to find this out with a call to your dealer.

I have a 95 Eldorado out in my back yard for parts, if you think this is the problem and mine wil fit, I can cut it out for you and send the whole unit to you.

96 Dodge Ram Gas Gauge always on empty


The fuel pump and the sensor is altogether as one assembly. So if you buy the pump you would also be buying the sensor. Just for your information the pump is located in the gas tank under the bed, so you have two ways to change it. One is take the bed off (which is a lot easier if you have a full gas tank). But if its empty than use a jack to lower the tank down from underneath the truck. I hope this helps.
