    Same issue on a 2002 Hyundai Sonata. Shelby7 says to "check the vent in the tank. If the bleeder is clogged the air in the tank won't escape and will not let the fuel enter the tank."

    My question is - HOW & WHERE!

Check the inlet tube for obstructions(kinks colapse etc.) and also check the vent in the tank. If the bleeder is clogged the air in the tank won't escape and will not let the fuel enter the tank at a faster rate of speed. Hope this helps

Pumping gas

Could be a venting problem with your gas tank, or a blockage in the filler tube going to the tank.

Please help. . constantly says to fill up 2000 Metro .pump clicks off

The fuel level gage is in the tank, but it cannot shut off the gas pump. The pump shuts off because the baffles in your filler pipe back up the gas, or possibly because your charcoal canister or vent valve is blocked. Try turning the gas hose sideways or upside down when filling. If that doesn't work, have a good mechanic check your evaporative emissions system for blockage.

I own a F350 2001 4x4 V10 I an having issue with the fuel pumps i have replased it twice and am about to do it again what could causes this so many times and how do you replace the fuel pump

The cause of the fuel pump going out all the time its where its made China, Mexico ect... junk parts. It took me 3 to 4 times before I found one Made in the USA and this was in a years time frame. I haven't had the problem since. The fuel pump is in the gas tank. If you take it in somewhere it will cost you about $700 and up. Or you can do it yourslf.

1. Get a jack and a block of wood
2. Unbolt the skid plate and jack up to tank
3. Unbotl gas tank straps and filler neck that goes to the gas tank
4. Lower tank slowly and remove gas lines
5. Undo retainer ring on tank that holds the gas pump in
6. Empty gas tank it will make it easier to left up
7. Replace fuel pump and reinstall

I have a 1989 Bronco 2 and it is not getting the fuel right. I think it is the fuel pump. Does anyone think what else it would be. I already replaced the filter. How would I replace the fuel pump?

The fuel pump is in the tank. Drop the gas tank.

1. Support the gas tank with a jack or something
2. unbolt the gas tank straps
3. unscrew the rubber filler neck going to gas tank
4. Lower gas tank slowly and disconnect gas lines
5. Turn the retainer ring that holds the fuel pump in the tank and left out.
6. Drain gas into gas cans to make the gas tank easier to left
7. Replace fuel pump and reinstall gas tank.

When I pump gas, it will spill out of the tank when its not full

there is a vent pipe/tube that runs along the fill pipe, this vent allows air out of the tank when u fill it, it has to be obstructed, replace it.

Poor fill up time

you need to check the hose that runs parallel to the gas line filler tube to make sure it's not blocked (for the life of me i can't think of the name of that tube at the moment).
Also i presume you have tried different gas pumps to rule out a defect in the pumps nozzle.
