    2006 Dodge Durango gushing gas tank without topoff. Dealer claims I need whole new tank for $1000.00. This problem strated immeadiately after rear brake rotors were replaced. I suspect pinched line. Taking truck to another mechanic.

    Same problem, started in the very cold weather. Thought it may be condensation because it went away when weather got warm. Now that I think about it, it started right after I had new tires put on the car.

Could be a pinched breater tube to the gas tank.
As you put gas in the car, the air has to come out of the breather hose.

Injectors may not be receiving signal to open, have you had your ECU Hooked up to diagnostics and checked the injector signal plugs?


(you will need a set of injector test lights, these can be had in a kit for around 40 bucks on ebay, as for diagnostics you may need to take it to a ford dealership or service center if you don't have a diagnostic tool)

98 ford windstar van ran out of gas and now wont start even after refueling.


To review - - the fuel pump in the tank pumps fuel to the injectors.
There is a fuel shut-off which works in a wreck to prevent a fire.
If the plunger is down, the switch is on. Normal.

It is possible the fuel lines are full of air which would take a long time to purge by cranking the engine. Sometimes you have to use starting fluid or other means to "run" the engine long enough to get gas back into the injectors.
As long as the engine cranks, the battery is fine.
It is also possible the pump was damaged when the tank was run empty. The pump uses liquid fuel to cool and lubricate the electric pump. It can overheat when running the tank below 1/4 full.
It is also possible the fuel filter was clogged with junk from the bottom of the tank.
I would get someone to check for fuel pressure at the injectors and try some carb cleaner or starting fluid in the intake hose next.

Is it possible to remove and clean fuel injectors


This could be a number of problems, I would start by checking to make sure that the exhaust is not plugged. If the catalytic converter is plugged it will create back pressure that can cause stalling and or poor engine performance. Be careful the gases coming from the exhaust system are not good for you and they are hot. Don't burn yourself checking it out. Sometimes you can hear a hissing sound as pressure slowly reduces in the system. It could also be a plugged injector, they are expensive to replace and harder to diagnose. This would be my guess if it starts hard. A mechanic should have a computer to plug into the vehicle and it should give you a better idea of what's wrong. Most dealerships will charge you an hours labor to hook up and check for you.

Fuel-spit back from my 2005 Dodge Durango


WOO stop there is a major recall with the 05 durangos the check valves get stuck they are recalling the gas tanks on thousands of those car. that is a big fire hazard. Go to the dealer I garente ur vehcle is recalled u may have not gotten the notice in the mail yet. Please rate if this helps.

Here is a copy of the dealer recall notice.

2005 (HB) Dodge Durango
NOTE: This recall applies only to the above vehicles built from October 13, 2004
through November 30, 2004 (MDH101300 through 113023).
The fuel tank inlet check valve on about 18,900 of the above vehicles may stick in
the open position. This can cause fuel to spill out of the filler tube when the
vehicle is being refueled. Fuel in the presence of an ignition source can result in a
fire.
The fuel tank inlet check valve must be tested for proper operation. Vehicles with
a sticking check valve must have the fuel tank replaced.

Check engine light comes on after refueling the vhicle. gauge doesn't read full, then it will. light goes out after a day or two.


Also, be sure to not over-fill the gas tank. When filling the tank, when it sounds full (you can hear gas gush up the filler neck) and when the filler clicks off the first time...don't be tempted to keep clicking more gas into the tank because over-filling can cause a variety of problems (including setting the light) and can eventually saturate/ruin the fuel vapor canisters.
