Question about 2001 Ford Windstar
When filling my ford windstar 2001 gas tank, it is very difficult to go with high speed filling. it is always triping and some gas is coming out. i have to do it in very very slow motion and it will take 10 Min. to fill. please help me.
The fule tank vent tube is blocked/clogged. It's the little hole next to the filler hose that invites spiders that clog it up. Blow out the tube and it fixes the problem.

I dropped my fuel tank on my 2001 Ford F150 5.4L v8 to replace the fuel pump and ever since then I've had issues filling it up. Doesn't look like filler hose has kink in it or anything else could be causing the issue. It takes me an average of 20-30 minutes to fill up every week and it freaking fustrating. No matter the gas station it happens each and everytime I fill up. I have to hold the nozzle and let it pump slowly and even then the pump cuts off like it is FULL (it's NOT). This happens like 10 to 15 times while pumping on low settings. On high settings it spits the gas out at you... Please help with issue email@example.com

Have you tried to reposition the filler nozzle to no avail?
I have this problem with certain filling stations nozzles.
I went so far as pulling the fuel tank filler hose that goes from the tank to the filler thinking there was something in there that was restricting the fuel flow while filling.
Some filler nozzles work well , others at the same station don't. So I have to use the one pump that works when I fill up my van... or , like you... babysit it for 10-15 min.
