    replacing filler neck with the vent tubes that are part of it does not solve problem. Problem is still there, most likely and vent solenoid on gas take or in charcoal canister

There is a fuel tank vent tube that runs down the filler tube to let the air out of the tank as you fill it, these tubes get kinked, replace the tube, this is part of the filler neck assembly so the whole thing must be changed out.

I have a 1989 Ford f150 drive for about 30 minutes it dies out or stop and want crank for about an hour


I would unplug the gas cap when it stalls; if you hear a hissing sound, change the gas cap, because it builds up a vacuum in the tank.

My 98 Rodeo is only getting about 6 miles to the gallon? Any ideas as to why?


at 6 miles to the gallon the engine will not be running properly
if it is running well then you have a fuel leak in a hose somewhere or your method of calculating the consumption is flawed
to get a consumption reading , fill the tank completely , take a note of the mileage and use the car normally you have to refuel again
fill the tank completely and take the mileage again
now deduct the first mileage from the second to get distance driven and use the second fill amount to get the fuel consumption for the distance covered

Fuel Fill Problem


you have a breather line that could be clogged. Try not putting the nozzle all the way in when refueling so air can get out.

2004 Ford Taurus takes 15 min plus to fill fuel tank, help!


theres a problem with the pipe that goes from the gas tank to the gas cap.Look under neath and see if the hose is pinched or bent.Another cause could be who ever owned it before had the tank out and they messed up the hose when they put it back in but that is differently the problem..

2000 Ford Expedition Starting problem


If the fuel gauge drops off when you are driving then its a sending unit problem that means you have to drop the tank and replace the float and sending unit. This is a common problem for alot of cars because of cheap gas. If you have to drop the tank check the fuel pump canster for dirt because of cheap gas. Replace the fuel pump strainer and fuel pump filter. If the car or truck has about 100,000 miles you might want to change the fuel pump at that time also just to cover your back. If you take it to a shop they will charge you at least $900 to start. But if you do it yourself it will cost you about $200 dollars maybe alittle more.

1998 Chevy Metro fueling problem


i used to have same prob, the gas nozzle is too big for this car, dont hold the handle all the way down let it go slower and it will work just fine, also hold it out just a little bit, because the nozzle is too long for this car, so you cant just let it sit there you actually have to hold it, while it is pumping
