the gas cap and check engine light thing are related in terms of the EVAP system, or the evaporative emisions system. This is NOT where your surge, or "chug" is coming from. The surge could be coming from a Exhaust Gas Recurculation valve that is starting to bind or "hang up" a bit. DO you notice this happens more at lights, or when coming to a stop? if so it could be an idle air control vavle.

SOURCE: Having difficulty filling the gas tank.

not so much a common problem as it is just! a problem go to a local salvage yard and buy a new filler neck and install it!! its really simple just take the 4-5 screws out of the top filler housing and take a hose clamp off the vent house underneath and then wiggle/pull REALLY!! hard outwards on the neck till it comes out of the tank

SOURCE: i need to drain gas out of my tank, my daughter

I would try disconnecting the filler hose and see if you can bypass the anti siphon ball by siphoning out of the tank it's self. Most of the time there is a a rubber hose that goes from the filler to the tank its self. If that does not work you may need to remove the gas tank and drain it.

Why cant i syphon gas out of 07' mitsubishi galant? Does this year and model have an anti-syphon ball?


Where are you siphoning it from? Under tank or from tank mouth? Under, not siphoning, it is clogged. From mouth, keep sucking hose til gas propel from it.

Need to know how to syphon gas out of my1993 Mitsubishi Diamante and hose gets stopped by something before reaching the gas tank. Bad gas was put in my car when the power went out due to tornados here in...


you can't syphon the gas out on these vehicles. They have a ball that is in the metal hose on the gas tank to keep any large object out of the tank. Your best bet would be to drop the tank, and take the fuel pump out and dump all the old fuel. Hope this helps, James Booth

Filled tank accidently with diesel


No problem!!! Just syphon the tank and refill with gas. try to get as much diesel out as possible, obviously, but a quart or two mixed with the gas won't hurt, as a matter of fact it will act like a fuel system cleaner and lubricator. Beyond two quarts to 16 gallon tank and some egr system damage could occur.

I have a 2003 sante fe that has died with a full gas tank. I have tried syphoning the gas out but it appears there is something blocking the syphon hose from going all the way into the tank. any...


there is a roll over ball blocking you if your vehicle was to roll over there is a ball that will close off filler neck trapping fuel for safety purposes under vehicle follow the filler neck down to tank beside the big filler neck hose should be a smaller hose remove that hose from tank and insert your syphon hose there this should work for you i assume you have determined that the uel pump is your problem and are trying to access the pump??

2007 Saturn vue won't accept gas.


There is an anti-syphon screen in the filler neck of the gas tank. They do not have very large openings and the slightest debris will act like it is blocked. EIther have the screen replaced or completely removed, or don't put gas nozzle completely in the hole
