There is a big rubber hose that runs from the metal filler hose to the tank. It looks simple enouth but after loosening the hose clamps I cannot get the hose to turn or move. Also there is a collar or ring that is up against the hose clamp by the tank that can turn and can tightly slide down the hose. What is that ring or collar for? Once I get the big rubber hose removed and the smaller hose removed then it seems like it is easy to remove the tank. Thank you, Randy

Really sounds like someone or something has plugged up your fill pipe. Is there any chance someone has done this?
For a fix, if you will look under the car, you will see a place where the metal fill pipe meets the metal extension coming up from the gas tank. Between them is a rubber hose with a metal clamp on each end. You could loosen those clamps and remove the rubber pipe, and then see if something is plugging that, and where. The gas tank is removable, but both that and the rubber hose will be a "big job'.
God bless your efforts.
I do not have experience with a Durango. I have experience with a Chevrolet. The hose on the filler line was large diameter and very hard. It would not slip off. I had to empty the gas tank, cut the large hose, and remove the small hose. Then I had to jack up the car, and lower the gas tank to the ground to have room to work. From there is was simple to remove and install parts, install the gas tank, and tank up.
Hi I'm Peter, Not sure what your problem is from just posting fuel filler neck however I am assuming you have a strong gas smell. The rubber hose that connects the filler pipe on the tank to the fuel spout may be cracked and leaking. Another common problem is the tank vent tube that runs from the tank up along side the filler tube may be rubbing on the metal part of the tube and has a hole in it. This will give you the strong fume smell and possible fuel leak as will the rubber filler tube when the tank is full. These vehicles are known for this problem and also the metal filler pipe rusting causing a pin ole. Look to see if you can see rust anywhere . Even if you don't see rust on the outside does not mean there is not rust on the inside. I have seen where a lot of people have been have the rust issue also to the point they carry the part at auto parts stores . Hope this is what you needed.
OPEN GAS CAP FLAP THEN YOU NEED TO DRAIN GAS BELOW FILLER NECK.THEN LOOSEN REMOVE SCREWS IN THE GAS CAP FLAP AREA WHERE FILLER TUBE CONNECTS THEN GO UNDERNEATH VAN LOOSEN REMOVE HOSE CLAMPS AND REMOVE THE HOSE AT THE FILLER NECK BELOW THE GAS TANK.SPRAY WD40 AROUND HOSE AREA AT METAL FILLER TUBE STICK OUT GAS TANK.CAREFULLY USE LARGE PAIR OF CHANNEL LOCK PLIERS TO REMOVE WORK HOSE OFF METAL TUBE FROM GAS TANK. IF YOU CANT REMOVE HOSE WITH HANDS.BECAREFUL NOT TO MAKE ANY SPARKS.PLACE RAGS AROUND ANY METAL PARTS TO KEEP CHANNEL LOCKS FROM HITTING METAL MAKING SPARKS.
yes. if you look under the car theres a metal tube that the gas cap goes on then it turns to a rubber hose were it connects to tank, wake sure the hose is not kinked or metal tube is not crushed, good luck ,start there.
After removing all connections and wiring from the tank and the sending unit and depressurize fuel system and drain the fuel tank and most importantly TO DISCONNECT THE BATTERY this is what you have to do :
1- Make sure to mark the wires for the sending unit so that you do not have a problem connecting in the correct place.
2- Remove bolts securing spare wheel mounting bracket and remove bracket.
3- Remove tank upper insulation pad.
4- Disconnect fuel pump harness from evaporative loss flange connection
5- Release harness attached to tank retaining straps and reposition harness downward.
6- Disconnect vapor pipe assembly from underbody pipe.
7- Push back collars on quickfit connectors and remove vapor pipe and over-pressure pipe from evaporative loss flange port.
8- Remove bolts securing tank retaining straps.
9- reposition straps upwards for access.
10- Remove strap holding filler housing solenoid block connector to harness and disconnect connector.
11- Disconnect drain tube from aperture seal (small pipe beside big one)
12- Open filler cap and remove filler neck garter spring.
13- Remove filler housing bolts.
14- Displace filler housing from body opening
15- Remove fuel tank.
16- Remove hose from evaporative loss flange and filler neck , ( Bend weld tag upwards to release hose).
17- Remove evaporative loss flange lock ring.
18- Lift flange from tank enough to disconnect fuel pump harness.
19- Remove flange and seal.
20- Inside tank , loosen hose clamps and remove fuel hoses from fuel pump module.
21- Remove fuel pump module and mounting rubber , note position of mounting rubber lugs.
22- Loosen hose clamps and remove two fuel hoses inside tank.
23- Remove tank sending unit.
24- Remove magnetic drain plug and make sure that you clean it well.
That is it your tank is out , and make sure that you mark every thing that you disconnected to install back in its proper place.
If you need any more help please let me know
THATS 100% Right!!!!There pretty easy to change.Be careful removing top lies do to rust and various other problems.Dont bend them I'm sure you know the drill.As far as the filler neck try and loosen it at the tank which is probably where your leak is coming from.After you get clamp off there another tube thats inside there,the big filler hose for your venting while filling it up.Be sure not to wreck it>When you undo the hose you'll have to work a little bit getting it of but pull it all the way out so you dont damage the venting hose inside of the filler hose.Thats it.Good luck to you and remember take your time and it should work out great for ya.Thanks for asking...
Are you going to get a new one, or a junkyard replacement?
You have to take off the rear left tire. Secure the car with jack stands and chucks. There is a plastic cowl on the wheel-well that covers the filler tube to prevent road damage. Take it off. The filler tube is attached to the gas tank through a rubber connector hose (tube) adapter, secured to the gas tank and to the filler tube by hose clamps. Loosen both clamps.. You should replace the rubber connector, as it has been there for many years, and rubber degrades. Loosen about three or four bolts along the filler tube that attach it to the car body. The top part, by the gas lid, comes off easily, it's just a plastic dam. You have to carefully work it off the (other end) at the rubber hose connector. Once it's out, get the hose connector off the gas tank neck.
With the new filler tube, reverse the process. Getting the hose clamp tight over the gas tank neck is hard. Make sure the clamp is seated properly before tightening.
Look again into the fuel filler there should be a metal hose which is where the tank gets it's air from, ensure when your filling up your not pushing the fuel filler gun fully home when filling up, suggest you don't fill the tank right up to the very top as your correct it's a big job & you will need parts before you take the tank off. http://passionford.com/forum
