Try adjusting how far in you push the nozzle when you fill, some vehicles can't take as much gas as other through the filler tube to the tank. Also if this only happens when the tank is full, its because the shut off in the gas pump you are using can't tell that your tank is full. If this is a new problem with a car that you have had for a few years, and the pumps at your local gas station haven't been upgraded, you may need to have the fill line to your gas tank replaced, there is a screen in the line to prevent gas theft and that could be dirty

Can youput to much freon in and what will it do

4 cans will be too much
it makes the compressor pump liquid instead of gas and that damages the compressor
it the compressor is still capable of pumping gas then it will go to high head pressures and that will switch the compressor off
you have wasted your money, run the risk of expensive compressor damage , didn't fix the leak that required the gas
The specialist ac shops are not there to take your money but to give you a system that runs without problems so use them to fix the faults and put the right amount of gas in using gauges not cans

My 1996 Nissan bluebird had all the cool system replaced but is still boils the temp says its cold i need help to find out why it boils over

Looks like you have a leaking head gasket or cracked head. You can buy a head gasket leak detector kit that will let you know if there is CO2 gas escaping through the radiator. I think that it is this gas leak that makes it look like your radiator is boiling.

Yup, evap canister related. Replace the gas cap first, then replace the evap vent valve, then the evap canister. Replace 1 at a time till you fix your problem. If problem persists, report back.

What is vapor lock?

Vapor lock is when a fluid in a closed system, such as in a hydrolic system, gets get hot enough to boil and produce vapor which unlike a fluid can be cimpressed thus rendering hydrolic systems inoperative. Fluids act as a solid when pressure is exerted on to them but in their gaseous state (vapor) they can be compressed and the pressure needed to move pistons is instead absorbed by the gas rather than applied to the pistons.

Very hard to fill my gas tank when it is empty. gas sprays out the filler neck until i get about 1/4 tank of gas put in. then problem goes away. help

Not sure but maybe the fuel pump is very hot making the fuel boil. Maybe check to see if the tank is hot, ( touch it ) if it is the fuel pump or the fuel filter needs to be changed. The pump is very powerful and with the filter clogged up it'll work real hard to deliver the fuel at the correct pressure. This will make the fuel ump real hot hick may make it boil the cool fuel added. Does it do this if the tank has more fuel in it? A fuel pump that's getting this hot isn't a good thing and should be followed up on. The other thing that might be happening is the fuel inlet hose is picnced and the fuel is being reversed. But it seems like the lavel won't matter. Maybe the tank is'nt venting corectly and the tank is being sucked flat as it emplties and as it fills it goes back in shape. ( alot less likly.)

Horrible floating gas gauge

The sensor is bad. Unfortunately the only fix is a new fuel pump. The pump and sensor are a 1 piece deal. The cost of a pump is $300-$500 plus installation. Unless you know somebody that gets a discount on car parts. Looking around 1-2 hrs for installation.

Do i have a vapor lock

Remove the gas cap when it does this. If you hear a woosh sound the tank vent isn't working properly. Essentially your tank has turned into a vacuum.
