Sounds like the warm start choke. It positions the carb butterflies when the car is warm and adjusts the fuel mixture.

I cant get more then 1 gallon of gas in my fuel tank on my 2000 ford windstar what could be wrong?


ive seen this happen on new cars , but not on a 2k model , but might be same cause , if you do a code check you might see a vac canister fail on the readout , all new cars have a vapor recovery system that recovers the fuel vapor inside tank and burns it in engine , the vapors are collected in a canister then pulled into engine and burned off , this gets clogged up sometimes and needs replacement , the new gas pump nozzles have what is called a closed loop system , they need to sense a no pressure backfeed from gas tank when filling it in order to work , long and the short of it , gas nozzle won;t allow fuel in if vapor in tank builds up from a backed up canister

P0172 fault code


It could be an emmissions problem. Sometimes even the gas cap being loose can cause a code. Make sure to tighten the cap when done refuelling...you should hear repetitive clicks when its tight. Other components related to code p0172 are o2 sensor(bank 1) and catalytic converters. Hope this helps!

Own a 2001 Kia Sportage which spews gasoline out when refueling. also tends to go dead when driving down highway.


-Check breath line (vapor line), it might be bend. Tha's why it spill gas when refill.
Q: What is breath line and where is it...?
A: It's a small tube line above the filler line that along with the filler libe to the tank.

-You mean it will die when you try to press more gas...?
-If so. Possible need new spark plug.
-Check and test TPS (trottle position sensor) Must be within specification
Check mass air flow sensor & Clean. Careful do not damege.

Codes po 455 and po462


P0455 - Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected (no purge flow or large leak)
This indicates a fuel vapor leak or lack of purge flow in the EVAP control system. It means a large leak has been detected. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.

Symptoms: You likely won't notice any drivability problems.

Causes: A code p0455 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
* A loose or improperly affixed gas cap
* A non-conforming gas cap (i.e. not factory/original brand)
* Other leak or damaged piece in EVAP system

Possible Solutions: With a p0455, the most common repair is to:
* Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
* Otherwise, replace the gas cap, and/or
* Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses (you may hear a vacuum noise or smell fuel), repair if necessary


P0462 - Fuel Level Sensor Circuit Low Input
The powertrain control module (PCM) monitors the fuel level input (FLI) circuit for electrical failure. The test fails when the signal moves below the minimum allowable calibrated parameter for a specified fuel fill percentage in the fuel tank.

Causes:
* Empty fuel tank
* Fuel pump (FP) module concern
* Incorrectly installed fuel gauge
* Damaged instrument cluster
* Damaged fuel gauge
* FLI circuit shorted to CASE GND or PWR GND

Diagnostic Aids:
Monitor the FLI and FLI V PIDs in key on, engine running (KOER). A concern is present if the FLI PID is at 25% fill and the FLI V PID is less than 0.90 volt with a non-matching fuel gauge or the FLI PID is at 75% fill and the FLI V PID is greater than 2.45 volts with a non-matching fuel gauge.


Hope this helps to solve it.

1995 1500cc Hyundai Accent seems have a fuel starvation problem.


Your gas tank must of been crushed,in some kind of offroad incident because if you can't fill it up the filler tube must be kinked.Or the pollution system is faulty such as the purge valve or vapor canister.

2006 jeep liberty will not take gas keeps clicking off gas pump. 3rd time at dealer. dealer has no idea what's wrong


The ORVR (On-Board Refueling Vapor Recovery) system consists of a unique fuel tank, flow management valve, fluid control valve, one-way check valve and vapor canister.

The ORVR (On-Board Refueling Vapor Recovery) system is used to remove excess fuel tank vapors. This is done while the vehicle is being refueled..

Fuel flowing into the fuel filler tube (approx. 1 inches I.D.) creates an aspiration effect drawing air into the fuel fill tube. During refueling, the fuel tank is vented to the EVAP canister to capture escaping vapors. With air flowing into the filler tube, there are no fuel vapors escaping to the atmosphere. Once the refueling vapors are captured by the EVAP canister, the vehicle's computer controlled purge system draws vapor out of the canister for the engine to burn. The vapor flow is metered by the purge solenoid so that there is no, or minimal impact on driveability or tailpipe emissions.

As fuel starts to flow through the fuel fill tube, it opens the normally closed check valve and enters the fuel tank. Vapor or air is expelled from the tank through the control valve and on to the vapor canister. Vapor is absorbed in the EVAP canister until vapor flow in the lines stops. This stoppage occurs following fuel shut-off, or by having the fuel level in the tank rise high enough to close the control valve. This control valve contains a float that rises to seal the large diameter vent path to the EVAP canister. At this point in the refueling process, fuel tank pressure increases, the check valve closes (preventing liquid fuel from spiting back at the operator), and fuel then rises up the fuel filler tube to shut off the dispensing nozzle.

Intermitant stall


Never owned one but maybe your car is Vapor locked...It's when your gas tank pressure becomes greater than your fuel pump..It's caused from years of over filling your gas tank...Your car is designed to burn vapors. But gas goes down the line instead and clogs up your canister meant to filter fumes...Then it builds pressure up in the gas tank. When the pressure in your tank becomes greater than your car...It shuts off and want start back until the pressure has gone down...If this is the problem just loosen your gas cap...it releases the pressure immediately...You usually will hear a suction sound when you open your gas cap....Hope this helps...It could be the problem...maybe not...But something you might not think about or know
