Question about 2007 Nissan Armada LE

Sensor won't allow full tank of gas

When i try to fill my gas tank, the gas spits back out as if the tank is full when in actuality, i can't fill it above 1/4 tank. i took it to repair shop. they took the neck of the tank off and said there is no obstruction so they guessed it has to be a sensor. i have not taken it to a nissan dealership yet bc i want to know what the potential problem and cost are first.

i greatly appreciate your help bc as a single mom it's very frustrating having to be in gas stations at least once/day.

thank you very much!!!

    Is it possible the tank is full and the fuel gage is reading incorrectly. I only ask this because I have never heard of a sensor in the the gas tank that would not allow you to fill it. Did they check the vent tube?

I'd have to check your evap system. Any applicable trouble codes?
When you fill-up, the air in the tank has to go somewhere or it will burp back-up the fill pipe and shut off the gas pump. I'm not that familiar with your particular emission system. Just my 2 cents.

I have the same problem, I have removed the handle and pulled the carpet away from the door guard and pull the cable with my hand. It does not take alot of pressure to release the handle. I am going to tie a piece of small rope (shoe lace thick) to the cable.

SOURCE: gas gauge reads empty but tank acts like it's full

I also have a 04 with a 1.8L. same problem. I took the fuel regulator off. It is a black box behind the rear tire under car. It only has 2 bolts to take off. After that there is a couple of vent hoses from the tank going to this box. Unplug them and 1 electrical connection. The electrical connection and one vent is connected to a T connection on the box that you can unplug by twisting on the T. Take that T off and look inside where you unplugged the hose on this T. There is a spring and a little plunger inside this tube. The plunger gets stuck. I took a little screw driver and some PB blaster and worked that plunger back and forth a couple dozen times and it unfroze. Put it back together gassed up just fine. I did not look but I was told regulator can be replaced for 200$. But a can of blaster is cheaper.

My 2010 Mazda 3 is showing full tank of gas when it's actually almost empty therefore it will not accept more gas.


If you cannot fill the tank because of an erroneous reading then it is time to replace the gas gauge sending unit responsible for the anomaly. Hope fully you can do it from the trunk - otherwise you will have to drop the gas tank to gain access.

My car does not want to take in gas. I have been trying for the last 2 days to put gas but after about $1.00 or so it spits it right back out. I don't think it is empty even though the gas light is coming...


OK, it sounds like your gas gauge is bad or the level sensor sending unit in the tank is bad.
Your tank is full, probably, and is giving a false low reading.

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.

When trying to fill the gas tank the gas spits out even though the tank is not full


you cannot use the autofill guns as they are too quick.only fill manually and try twisting gun to one side when filling.(there is a restrictor in the tank that stops flow if car overturned.)

Can't get gas to go in tank, and it will spit out gas


Every gas tank has a vent tube, so when you fill the tank, air can escape, while the fuel is being pumped into the tank. Some vent tubes are metal, some rubber. Yours is either collapsed or plugged up. Look at the fill tube in the firebird and follow it from the gas cap to the tank, there should be a 2nd smaller tube that is your vent tube. Check to see if it's collapsed, pinched, or bent. This is definitely your problem. Check out this web site for pictures of different fill and vent tubes to get an idea of what to look for. Good luck let me know how you make out. Curt

2000 Camry Gas tank spits gas out 2-3 times before taking it


there is a vent pipe that runs along side the fill pipe, this allows the air to vent out of the tank as u fill, check it for obstrutions or a kink, u will need to remove it to check this out.

Gas gauge flys from quarter tank to way past full mark and sticks


This isn't a definite fix, but it may be that the gasoline in your tank is 'sloshing' forwards and backwards and your sensour is getting readings when the gasoline is in different positions in your tank. The connection is actually above your gasoline tank and you'll have to take off the tank harnesses and drop the tank if you want to check to see if the connection became slightly loose, otherwise you can just fill your gas tank and reset your temporary milage gage (that's the little black button near your RPM meter) and remember how many miles you get per tank.
