Hi if you look into filler pipe you will see a flap/restrictor just inside this is to prevent wron fuel filler nozzle from entering so unless you put the correct fuel nozzle fully into tank fill pipe and this pushes flap open you will experience slow filling ALSO? to put fuel in tank the air inside must be able to displace emit from tank ok this is done via a hose from tank and is usually clipped along side the filler pipe under wheel arch below filler check and ensure this pipe is clear and also free from kinks? as this if blocked will not allow displacement of air from tank as fuel level increases? hope this is clear enough for you to understand?

Just replaced 2 fuel pumps but the gas tank will not fill when pumping gas - the pump cut off

When you're getting gas at the gas pump if it is shutting off due to back pressure it has nothing to do with your fuel pump. There is a small breather tube that runs from your tank to the filler neck this can sometimes clogged up or fail when this happens if the house collapses the air can not circulate back through the tank and causes this problem

When refueling my Elantra will not accept fuel as it used to. fuel backs up in filler tube. takes ten to fiffteen minets to fill!

If there is a rubberized hose (and there probably is) connecting the fill pipe to the tank, check to make sure it hasn't partially collapsed, thereby restricting fuel flow thru it.

Cant fill the truck with gas the pump will shut off and gas can be seen inside the fill pipe. the gas will then slowly go into the tank. the truck is a dodge 1500 hemi 5.7 2x2 .

There is most likely a crimp or blockage in the filler tube. This is the tube that leads between the fill pipe and the tank. You may need to remove the tube and tank or replace the hose so you don't have slow filling problems.

My 2003 Toyota Tacoma extended cab has a gas tank filling problem. I can only squeeze the gas nozzle with the tip as high on the filler tube as possible to put in about 1/4 gallon of gas per squeeze of...

Many vehicles have a rubber hose between the filler tube on the body and the gas tank. Check that it's not collapsed or that something maybe got in there and squeezed it partially shut. The rubber tube may need replaced. Please rate this answer, thanks.

Cant pump gas in tank. it pushes back out

That is due to an obstruction in the filler neck. Follow the filler hose from the outside of the car to the tank and make sure it is not collapsed. I have seen vehicles that didn`t take fuel fast no matter what you do short of re-plumbing it.

Trouble filling gas tank

If your having trouble filling the fuel tank. Consider a few things first, Have you tried holding the filler nozzle at a different angle? Have you had any resent repairs done to the fuel tank and/or filler nozzle? Are you trying to fill a fuel tank that is already full?
If none of the above suggestions apply to your problem then you may have an obstruction down inside the filler collar or the vent tube that runs parallel with the filler tube.

How to replace a fuel pump on a 1995 buick 3.8 lasabre Thank you

The fuel tank must be drained, fuel lines and vent lines disconnected. Disconnect the filler tube that leads to the filler neck. Unplug the wire harness that leads to the top of the fuel tank.
Remove both straps holding the tank into position.
Remove the gas tank and the pump is located in the fuel sending unit that is accessed thru the top of the fuel tank.
