1998 Chevy Metro fueling problem

I was having problems putting fuel in my car. It would take gas for 5 seconds then click off like it was full.It took me 10-15 minutes to put in 7 gallons.
Now when I put gas in, it comes right back out where I put the nozzle in! What could be causing this?

I used to have same prob, the gas nozzle is too big for this car, dont hold the handle all the way down let it go slower and it will work just fine, also hold it out just a little bit, because the nozzle is too long for this car, so you cant just let it sit there you actually have to hold it, while it is pumping

Hey i have a 1998 chevy 1500 the truck will start for1 to 5 seconds and then it dies i do not understand what the problem is please help


Hi James:
Since it starts you have spark so I'd be looking at the fuel delivery end of things. Most of us pump the gas pedal so that would prime the motor (accelerator pump) so there's fuel in the carb. I'd be looking at gummed up jets as a possible and trying to clean up the carb.
Now, if you tell me it's a diesel I'll be completely demoralized.

Put new fuel pump, fuse, and relay in 1998 chevy s10 and still no power to fuel pump


Did you check the ground wire on the frame. There is a ground wire that is bolted to the top frame rail near the left rear wheel opening. I've seen that wire break or get corroded where it bolts to the frame. I'm not sure of the location on a 1998 but that's where it is on the earlier models as well as the full size trucks. That wire also grounds the gas gauge, does the gas gauge read goofy? Also keep in mind the pump only runs for 3-5 seconds then it shut off, until the engine starts, or the starter is engaged. Good luck!

If I have less than 1/4 tank of gas my yukon won't start.


I had the same problem. I had a few different mechanics tell me that the fuel pump is starting to go out when it does that. The fuel pump is located in the fuel tank, and the gasoline keeps the pump cool and lubricated. When the fuel tank is less than a 1/4 full, the pump is not submerged anymore, and can have trouble sending gas to the engine. My emergency fix was to get underneath the car on the driver's side and bang on the gas tank about three times. It will start up, and will run great unless you turn your engine off. But eventually you're going to need a new fuel pump. Once I replaced it, the problem went away.
