Question about 2005 Jeep Liberty

Gas overflows when fillingtank.

When I fill the gas tank the gas gushes out when its full. I don't "top-off". The dealership called it a gas leak, and said it will cost $347.00 + tax to repair. This is for a solenoid and vapor canister. Does this sound right? I have the same problem - the gas pump clicks off when the tank is full but gasoline gushes out after the pump has stopped. I never top off my tank & this has happened a different gas stations.

    2007 Jeep JK Unlimited. Just started last month. No topping off, 4 different gas stations, each time gas gushes out after pump shuts off. I even tried manually stopping the gas when the "pitch" of the filling got higher indicating it was near full...still gushes out. The only way I have been able to prevent it is to estimate the # of gallons I need and stop short. Very annoying. Luckily it's under warranty however this will be the 3rd warranty repair needed and it's only got 17K miles.

This sounds like the gas tank vent pipe is obstructed.

You may need this: GM part #15131046. Google the Jeep Forum for details. This fixed my 2007 Ford Expedition EL recently as well. It was also overflowing and spewing gas all over the ground when the pump shut off. This is no longer an issue. You can read about my experience on the Ford Expedition forum. Google "justinp973 ford expedition forum"

Sounds like you might have a breather hose that is pinched.

I have 2002 Lincoln ls that is leaking gas from the top of gas tank by fuel pump I've replaced the fuel pump could it be a bad gas line when I go to fill up with gas some of it runs out as I am pumpin


Does the pump have wick disconnects that required a tool to remove them? There are orings in those as well as a large oring sealing the pump to the tank. Make sure the connectors click when you replace them. The pump should activate with the key on. " not started", you should be able to see if the lines are leaking or if it just your fuel fill overflow hose leading to the fill door alongside the large full hose.

I have a 99 bonneville. About a week ago i was putting gas in when i knew it was almost empty, and the pump kept shutting off. I did this for a few days, putting in just enough to not run out. Then it went...


Sounds like the vent for the tank may be defective. The vent is on top of the gas tank between the tank and the floor of the trunk.
Or there is a blockage in the fill pipe for the tank below the connector hose.
You may have to have someone remove the tank and inspect it.

Ford f 150 dual gas tank drawing from both tanks at the same time


Replace the fuel deliver valve, it is under the truck on the drivers side, it is a black plastic canister with lots of plastic lines going in and out of it. If you find this is the problem disconnect one line at a time, don't take everything off at once and mix them up.

Why does my svt contour gas tank overflow into the parking lot when filling up.


There are two hoses running from the filler neck. Either of them could be leaking from the top. There is also a seal on the top of the tank where the fuel pump is that can leak. If your car leaks the whole time you are putting fuel in, I would suspect the hoses. If it only leaks when you get it full, then check the seal on the top of the tank. The top of the tank can be seen without dropping the tank. Remove your back seat and you will see a cover over the fuel pump. Remove that cover and you can see the top of the tank.

2001 Durango acts like the gas tank is full during filling cutting off the pump. The only way to fill tank is to pump gas really slow


Chrysler and Dodge have a fuel vapor filter that allows air out of the gas tank but filters the harmful fumes. Usually the problem happens from topping off your gas after the gas pump stops due to the automatic shut off and then putting more gas in the tank (to make the bill an even $50. or to the next $5 increment, or pumping more in just because it fits). Anyway the filter gets saturated with gas, is not able to breath, and causes a vacuum in the tank. Because of this, the anti-siphon ball is not able to float around and sits at the opening of the fuel fill tube and won't allow any more gas to be put in (acts like the car is full). If you pump super duper slow like put a nickel to hold the gas pump handle, it will trickle in without a problem, but it takes forever! Solution, get the filter replaced and don't over fill the tank.

I have a gas leak at the tank. When I fill to full, gas leaks out


you might try looking to see if the filler tube is cracked and leaking if it is you could replace it and that will take care of the check engine lite depending on what code is being set

Check engine light comes on after refueling the vhicle. gauge doesn't read full, then it will. light goes out after a day or two.


Also, be sure to not over-fill the gas tank. When filling the tank, when it sounds full (you can hear gas gush up the filler neck) and when the filler clicks off the first time...don't be tempted to keep clicking more gas into the tank because over-filling can cause a variety of problems (including setting the light) and can eventually saturate/ruin the fuel vapor canisters.

Gas leaking out where you fill the front tank


You probably have a defective fuel-tank selector valve. Its located on the left frame rail, halfway down. While the vehicle is running, tank"A" is pumping fuel to the engine, while tank "B" is getting the unneeded fuel that is returning from the engine. Thats why it is overflowing.

Front gas tank leaked when I filled the tank


the top of the tank has an opening where the gas guage sending unit is installed. The gasket can give out and it can leak when the tank is completely full, but won't necessarily show signs of leakage when the tank is partially full.
Requires dropping the tank and changing the gasket... hope this helps.
