This is caused by a defective fuel vapor recovery system in the fill pipe, you need the dealer to repair this.

It sounds like the rubber hose between the gas cap pipe and the tank's inlet might have kinked or collapsed.BUT it gould be what Dennis said.
You should be able to look under the vehicle and see this hose. It's as large or larger in diameter as a radiator hose. don-ohio (:^)

SOURCE: filling gas tank

There is a vent pipe that runs along the fill pipe, they get kinked and cause this concern (tank can't vent air when filling), the only fix is to replace the fill pipe assembly.

The tank vent pipe may be blocked or kinked, it usually branches off the main tank filler pipe and can be seen from under the car.

Its not a gas issue. Its more than likely just coincidence that it doesnt start when you turn your car off to fill up.

Check the battery connections under your hood. If the posts (the positive and Negative leads) are corroded then you need to clean them so your cables have better connection to draw a spark for your ignition.

Clean the posts with a solution of 1 part baking soda, 1 part warm water. Use an old toothbrush to scrub the corrosion away. The solution will fizzle when you mix it with the corrosion, this is normal and fine. Just scrub it clean.

Once clean, tighten the connection with a socket wrench.

You may also be having battery issues. If its been a long time since a new battery or youve never replaced it, I would. Paying 70 bucks up front for a brand new battery is much better than getting stranded and a tow

. Autozone can help you with the battery replacement. Hope this helps. good luck.

Slow fuel filling


This has happened to me also, I've found what it is is that the tank doesn't is getting lie a vapor lock. It's like when you try to pour a whole gallon of water out at once, it needs air. Try slowing the gas pump down, it shouldn't stop that way.

Last fill up showed it needed 8 gallons - paid for 9 gallons - guage stopped at the 3/4 mark - Did the same thing the previous fillup.


These gauges are notorious for being inaccurate. The problem could be the gauge or the sensor in the tank. The fuel level sensor is part of the Fuel pump itself. Based on an Avg cost of $140 for a fuel pump unit and the inconvenience of using the trip meter to judge fill ups I would use the trip meter myself but this is your choice.

Cannot fill gas tank on 2002 Kia sedona. Even when you only pump 1 gallon, the pump clicks off like it is full. We have taken off the hoses but did not see any blockage.


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!

My 1996 BMW Z3 will not let me put gas in it at a normal speed. I have to put it in very slowly! Any idea what's wrong?? Thanks, Robin


Well something is blocking it... Some vehicles have a plastic ball in the pipe between the cap and main tank, the purpose for this is to block anyone trying to siphon gas out of your tank, but still let gas seep past downward. These become more common as gas prices raise. I'd lay odds your car has one and it's stuck somehow. Then again you never know if some kid came by and stuck a sock in there or something. Try taking an opened up coat hanger or something to the like and probe down the pipe. Maybe you can un-lodge the ball. If you feel something soft, there is something wrong!

Cannot freely pump gas into my 2000 ford taurus


The gas guage is a seprate problem, the gas fill hose may have a sharp ben in the hose or kink, the gas pump hase a shut off valve that shuts off the pump if gas does not flow freely ie:blockage or full tank, I would visualy inspect the filler hose from the gas cap to the tank for again sharp bends or kinks, if the filler hose is in anyway restricked the pump may asume the tank is full.
the gas guage: is usualy a simple flot on a rod in the tank (like a toilet tank has) instead of opening or closing a valve it operates a "potentiometer" veriable position sensor (kind of like a dimmer switch).
if the float gets stuck the guage will stay in that position, the guage gets the signal via the wire harnes, so check the electric circit.
A trick I used on one of my jeeps (I removed the guages ) I filled the tank, reset the trip odometer to zero, put a jeerycan and a couple gallons of gas in the jeep, then drove normaly a week or so till I ran out of gas. wrote down the mileage on the trip odometer. gerrycan gas got me to the gas station.
divided the mileage by half. I fill up the tank all the way the reset the trip odometer to zero, when I reach the half mileage of the tank I fill up again and repeat

1995 Saab 900 Won't Take A Fill Up


Sorry if this gets posted twice. I have a 95 Saab 900, which I just acquired. I can get only about 4 or 5 gallons in at a time. The best analysis I found was this one where the man pinpoints a stuck valve in the gas tank, and tells of what he did to address it.: http://www.quasimotors.com/9_5_gas_fill_prob.htm
