    I have the same problem with my 2000 Hyundai Elantra with only 70k miles. I found this when I did a Google on it.

    "Depending on your vehicle here is the fixes:

    There's a piece on the
    charcoal canister they call the "on-board recover ORVR valve", or a fill check
    valve. This is a one-way check valve that will direct displaced vapors to the
    canister as you fill the tank. When this thing gets stuck, the vapors in the
    tank won't displace, and the nozzle shuts off because of the pressure increase.
    The part isn't too expensive and it's fairly easy to replace and not an uncommon
    occurence.
    __________

    It's on the charcoal canister connected to the
    gas tank with a vacuum hose. If I remember right it just clips in and it's not
    terribly difficult to replace.

    OR

    If you live near lakes, jungles,
    forests or oceans it might be this.

    Behind the gas tank there is a box
    with several hoses coming out. One short hose (about 6 inches long and 3/8 inch
    diameter) goes into the frame where the axle would be. Take this hose off with a
    flat-headed screwdriver. It will be filled with spider nests. Clean them out,
    put the hose back on, and presto!"

    I think this is the best advice above. I know, I had a problem with our 1999 Honda Accord with gas fumes coming near the gas tank. Found out it was valve near the EVAP canister underneath where the gas was filled.

2005 chevy cavalier gas gauge doesnt work goes into the temp gauge and when i try to put gas in it spills out like it is full.


It sounds like the fuel gauge sender unit is faulty, probably causing a wiring problem with other dash dials. Also sounds like you already full of fuel. The float and sender unit need checking and/or replacing.
(float in fuel tank). The fuel tank needs to be drained completely to do this work. Is it something you can do ? If not, it's not a major operation for a mechanic and the parts are cheap. Good luck... Red.

Loosing power when drining


Hi Jennifer-
I believe I may be able to help you with the gas spillage you are having when filling the tank. This happened on my 1998 Toyota Camry.
One day, even though I was low on fuel, the attendant had trouble adding gas to my tank. Gas would spill during filling or the nozzle would click off (as though it was full) even though it was not. I had to stand there myself and slowly add gas until the tank was full.
I learned that my car had a thin vent tube that would run from the gas tank to the gas tank opening. As gas is rushing into the tank during filling, the air that is being displaced from the gas tank escapes through this tube. This tube had rusted closed a bit and was restricting the air flow escaping from the tank during pumping causing the problems I described. Once this tube was replaced, my problem was solved!
Hope this helps!

MERCEDES ml320 Shifter gets stuck in park or Neutral, currently stuck in 1st gear full time, Shifter box ticks.


Lord threse arent fixes these are lame guesses, do you have any indicator lights that have been tripped, if so get the code and see what you can pull up, usually on these ml suvs the shifter has a pcb right under the shift bezel, it may have been a spilled drink causing this, shorting one of the circuits, these can be fixed with some maf sensor spray, 91 percent alcohol, maybe a can of forced air, or a combination, get out the hair drier set to low, spray the board sparingly, dont douse, try to hit it with the warm air and see how it does..remember to disconnect whenever you try and repair electrical issues, you dont want to make them worse

Blower works but not getting full air force


If the blower is not producing a strong flow of air, something has to be restricting it. Or something simple like the blower cage is slipping on the motor shaft.
You disassembled the HVAC box, are you sure the heater core or evaporator is not stopped up? Or the intake vent ?

When filling up with gas , the pumps stops and I have to fill tank very slowely


Some cars have a rather sharp bend in the fuel tank filler pipe. Try rotating the pump's nozzle so that it is more horizontal to the ground. Try it one way, if that does not work rotate it 180 degrees to the opposite direction.

The gas tank accepts only a gallon or so of gas before clicking off. It takes a very long time to fill the tank.


SOUND LIKE EVAP CONTROL SYSTEM NOT WORKING.COULD HAVE STOPPED UP FUEL SOAK EVAP CHARCOAL CANISTER.OR THE PURGE SOLENOID NOT WORKING ALSO GAS CAP COULD BE FAULTY.HAVE THE EVAP SYSTEM CODE SCANNED.WHEN PUMPING GAS EASE THE GAS SPOUT OUT JUST A LITTLE SO YOU CAN PUMP GAS IN TAKE.REASON CAR WONT ACCEPT GAS BECAUSE EXCESS GAS VAPORS CAUSES PRESSURE TO BUILD UP IN FUEL TANK IN WHICH WILL KEEP GAS FROM BEING PUMPED IN FUEL TANK.
