    I have the same problem but pulling back doesn't help. It takes at least 10 minutes to fill and you have to hold it so the gas comes out very slowly.

    Mine is a 2004 Chrysler 300M

Try pulling back a little on the nozzle, the tank has an anti rolloverball in the pipe and this sometimes cause it to shut off when the nozzle is stuck all the way into the filler pipe

PO441 code comes on- Evap purge control valve. also, when filling the gas tank, the nozzle on the gas pump keeps shutting off before tank is full.


Try not putting fuel nozzle in so far. Fuel flow cuts off on back pressure of the air being displaced by the fuel when filling. Can be a problem with narrow neck tanks and some fuel fillers are more sensitive than others.

Gas tank will not fill up on 2001 ford expedition


Gas as in gasoline or gas as in LPG gas? If its petrol, the fuel sender may be out of adjustment. (Usually means a new sender) If its LPG, the fuel stations are set to automatically shut off at 80% full. The gas tank will never actually be full to the brim but the gauge should be showing full if the gas nozzle keeps shutting off. Have a look on the LPG tank itself, they have a little gauge on them which shows how full it is. I have 2 tanks on my car , when "full" or when the pump shuts down, the tank gauges show just under full but the gauge on the cars dash shows full (2005 BA Ford)

When putting gas in my car (2004 pontiac grand prix, 3.8) the gas pump keeps shutting off like my car is full when its not. Any suggestion to what that means?


This is not a bad thing. You have a very tight emissions system. You know your car at this point better than anyone else. You can try this, don't put the gas nozzle very tight into the gas filler. Put the nozzle into your tank and just pull it out a fraction of an inch. This will give the fuel tank the ability to BREATH while your filling the tank .This should solve your problem. GOOD LUCK.

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

Unable to put gas into the tank. Pump keeps shutting off like the tank is full, it's not.


There is a filter on the tank vent that is plugged. It is not letting the air escape from the tank during fillup causing positive pressure which will will shut off the gas pump. I don't know where it is on your model but some are under the back behind the fuel tank. It is usually a 6" square plastic box with a hose on it and louvers on the sides.
