Question about 1996 Chevrolet Camaro

1 Answer

When trying to start car, the dashboard lights flash on & off &

Filled up gas tank, gas pump would not shut off and overfilled tank and spilled out...immediately after when I started the ignition all dashboard lights flashed on & off; car would start then immediately turn off. After a few attempts car would only start as long as I continually step on the accelerator. This now happens on and off.....Did not have this problem until the gas tank overflowed. When I kick over the ignition with no start, the lights & radio,et c.....Could this be a electronic sensor problem related to the gas tank?

When I purchased a 1989 Ford F-250 and I filled the front tank with gas. The front tank pumps gas to rear gas tank was overfilled and spilling onto the ground. Any clues on what could be the problem?


Hello Sam, I think you have a problem with your fuel solenoid valve that switches from front tank to the rear . I do know that Ford dealer has a recall on '93 F-150 like mine. I'm not sure about yours.

Ford 500 ac was over filled, it blew off and car started misfiring and shut down


Clean off the A/C oil from wherever it got. Check the fuel pump fuse. Check ALL the fuses and 'fusible links'. REMOVE, clean and reinstall them. Oil is an insulator. Oiled relays must be replaced

Secondary air injection system malfunction...Check your vacuum lines, and your air pump. Have you recently filled the gas tank in the car? I mean filled it like you keep topping it until the gas handle clicks and you try to squeeze more into the tanks??? If yes then you probably overfilled it and now the raw gas has gotten into the Charcoal evap canister and screwed the system up.

Every time you try to pump gas, the gas pump shuts off every 5 seconds. Doesn't matter how slow or fast you allow gas to come out. Doesn't matter what gas station. You never know when it is filled. Gas...


try disconnecting the fuel line leading into the fuel pump, let out a little fuel, then reconnect it. then disconnect the fuel line leading out of the fuel pump, letting out a little fuel.
if that doesnt work, run the car completely out of gas once. turn the engine over a few times while empty.
have you tried pumping gas with the enigine running? see if that helps. if this does help, it is probably the vacuum someplace, near the fuel injectors?

Fuel fill problem gas pump keeps shuts of when i try to fill


Iown 02 hyundai accent gl 1.6l. Had the problem twice. I used to over fill the tank until I had to spend close to $550.00 USD. The problem is when we overfill the tank. the carbon canister gets clogged and it damages a sensor in the assembly called "DMTL". Thia assy is located under the rear driver side of the car to the left and rear of the fuel tank. Once I replaced the carbon canister, sensor and filter the problem went away. if you let it go for a long time you eventually start smelling gas inside the car after fill ups. Good luck.
