Question about Cars & Trucks
Check the filling tube (or hose) going to fuel tank for damage. Could be the "ball" just inside the tank where the filling tube is attached. Its there to prevent fuel from draining out of the tank in the event of a roll-over.
Tap on the tank in the area around the filling tube with a rubber mallet. This should "unstick" the ball. They do sometimes get stuck and wont let fuel into the tank.

SOURCE: Gas Tank Blockage
i had the exact same problem, turns out, there is a 2 lines going from the gas tank to where you put your gas in, one is for the gas to go in and one is for air to get out. on mine, there was a sliver seal from a bottle of heat that i had poured in during the winter. the seal was the exact size of the return air line and blocked it from air coming out. this forced the air to come out the gas part and splashed around a lot causing the pump to shut off, i bet there is a blockage in the line that goes from your nozzle to your tank. it is easy to take off, but it is very dirty

Well you troubleshooted the problem by yourself. When you put in gas it washed the filter off and your truck started. Your problem is just the fuel screen( or filter) located in the tank but you tank also needs to be flushed out to keep future occurances from happening. It is totally up to you. You can either just change the screen or change the fuel pump and it will come with a new screen. Price them both at the auto parts store and see the difference in price. It is recomended to let the professionals do this job just because of the easy to break fuel lines. But Whom ever diagnosed fuel pump and fuel filter did diagnosed it correctly. But most garages will not warrenty the job unless you change both the filter and the pump. WHEN YOU DO HAVE THE JOB DONE IT IS RECOMENDED TO HAVE LESS THAN A HALF OF A TANK OF FUEL BECAUSE WHAT EVER AMOUNT THAT IS IN THERE WILL BE REMOVED AND NEW FUEL PUT BACK IN. ALSO DONT LET THEM FILL IT UP FOR YOU UNTIL YOU KNOW THE AMOUNT THEY ARE GOING TO CHARGE YOU PER GALLON. YOU SHOULD NOT PAY FOR MORE THAT $150.00 FOR LABOR AND WHATEVER THE PART COST. Me myself as a shade tree mechanic. I usually charge $100.00 plus parts. Good luck

it is located behind the glove box. the glove box has a compartment separator inside of it. you must pull up and out to remove it. the back of the glove box has a removable panel. remove it. the filter tray will have a cover over it with two snap clips or the fresh air circulator on the dash will have to be set to recirculate to open the cover for the filter.

I have a Kia Sedona 2005 and I can't fill it up with gas without the pump kicking off and I have tried several gas stations. Sometimes I can get a few gallons in with no problem but then it kicks off again and I have to spend twenty minutes dripping fuel into it until I loose patience. Help me!
