    I have a 2001 plymouth neon and just today for the first time I tried to put gas in it when it started just coming out the top and no letting any in. I tried putting gas in with the cannister I use for mowing the lawn and it went in fine. Any suggestions?

I had this same problem about four months ago. It was the charcoal canister. I had it replaced and it solved the problem.

    Problem with dispensing gasoline into Dodge truck at a normal rate.

    You have not mentioned the year or model of the truck.
    I sort of hope it is older!
    If so, you may have a mud dauber (wasp) nest in the air pipe.
    There is a steel pipe that goes from the top of the gas tank to the outside air, usually near or inside the gas fill pipe.
    If this pipe gets plugged, for any reason, it will cause the gas to refuse to go it.
    You may also try several different gas stations, as I had a 1993 with the same problem, and sometimes it is the gas hose nozzle.
    God bless your efforts.

    You have a bad Evap System Vent Solenoid
    causing the fuel tank to not vent & thus not
    able to fill the tank

    Research that for your vehicle with Google or go to

    Gas pump shuts off like its full many times while trying to refuel.

    Usually a blockage in the filler tube or a vent problem.
    You may have to take the filler tube off and inspect it. There should be a tube inside or outside the pipe to allow air pressure in the tank to equalize.

    The car seems to have an obstruction in the gas line, won't take gasoline easily from the punp. Turns pump off continuosly.

    Dan the reason it takes it from a gas can is there is no pressure building up in the line as you would have from a gas tank. As you fill the tanks the air inside of the tank has to go out as the tank fills up. I would suggest checking the fill hose thats connected to the gas tanks and the spout inlet where you put the hose to fill the tanks and check for kinks in the hose. Second there should be a vent hose from the tanks that connects to the spout also check it for kinks or blockage this would prevent air from escaping from the tank causing the gas pump to cut off due to the rapid filling of the tank without the air being able to escape. Hope this helps

    When I go to fill up the gas tank the gas keeps cutting off at the pump handle and I have to slow the gas pump to a trickle in order to fill the tank.

    The problem is that your gas tank "pushes back" like it's full even when it isn't and makes the fuel valve click off. Tom and Ray on Car Talk covered this in a 2007 show and I pasted some of their response below:

    "RAY: This condition is probably caused by either a blockage in your gasoline vapor recovery lines or a bad refueling control valve.

    TOM: Gasoline vaporizes. How do we know that? Well, when gasoline is spilled, you can smell it, right? What you're smelling is vaporized gasoline.

    RAY: And in the old days, when you filled up your tank, all the air inside the tank -- the air filled with gasoline vapors -- came whooshing out through the filler hole or through a vent at the top of the gas tank.

    TOM: But then people in places like Los Angeles realized they couldn't see the person standing next to them due to smog. And since gasoline vapors contribute to smog, car makers were forced to install devices to capture those vapors.

    RAY: So now each car has a vapor recovery unit that collects the gasoline vapors from the tank and then, the next time the car is started, sends them to the engine, where they're combusted. Your vapor recovery system isn't working, Lottie. One possibility is that one of the rubber hoses is blocked or collapsed."

    Have a 2002 Sonata-everytime i put gas in - it will click off-even backing it out it will still keep clicking off. Takes a half hour to fill the tank.

    dear friend -inside the filler neck is a butterfly which needs to be open when filling up,this happens when you insert the nozzle into the tank.shuold this flap be parcialy close the pump.will kick off.check for other restrictions aswell.
