SOURCE: When filling gas tank the gas pump kicks off

Fuel tank vent hose damaged, kinked, or bent.

Fuel tank vent valve is defective, plugged with dirt, or damaged.

If the car is driven normally and has never been in an accident, it's probably the valve.

SOURCE: 2002 lincoln continental when filling

This is usually caused by the vent tube on the fuel filler pipe being restricted in someway. If you look under the vehicle at the fuel filler pipe you will see a smaller pipe running down beside it.This is the vent.Make sure that it is not bent or stopped up.

SOURCE: When I go to fill

The problem is that your gas tank "pushes back" like it's full even when it isn't and makes the fuel valve click off. Tom and Ray on Car Talk covered this in a 2007 show and I pasted some of their response below:

"RAY: This condition is probably caused by either a blockage in your gasoline vapor recovery lines or a bad refueling control valve.

TOM: Gasoline vaporizes. How do we know that? Well, when gasoline is spilled, you can smell it, right? What you're smelling is vaporized gasoline.

RAY: And in the old days, when you filled up your tank, all the air inside the tank -- the air filled with gasoline vapors -- came whooshing out through the filler hole or through a vent at the top of the gas tank.

TOM: But then people in places like Los Angeles realized they couldn't see the person standing next to them due to smog. And since gasoline vapors contribute to smog, car makers were forced to install devices to capture those vapors.

RAY: So now each car has a vapor recovery unit that collects the gasoline vapors from the tank and then, the next time the car is started, sends them to the engine, where they're combusted. Your vapor recovery system isn't working, Lottie. One possibility is that one of the rubber hoses is blocked or collapsed."

SOURCE: on my 2001 lincoln ls the car starts up but shuts

Please don't pump the gas pedal. It is doing absolutely nothing. The TPS is a potentiometer and sends info to the ECM.
The fuel tank is underneath the car, between the rear seat and the trunk.
Change the fuel-filter first, then if there is no change then you need to run a test to see what the fuel-line pressure is. If it is below 33psi then you may have a leak, a defective fuel-pump, or fuel regulator.

Acts like it has no gas


The electric fuel pump in this truck is inside the fuel tank, the fuel that the pump sits in provides cooling and lubrication for the fuel pump, when you run out of gas it is like running the engine out of oil, it damages the pump,You will need to remove the fuel tank and replace the fuel pump.

AFTER I PUT GAS THE CAR WON'T STAR UNTILL I PUSH THE GAS PEDAL AND I HAVE TO KEEP PUSHING SO THAT I WONT SHUT OFF


If you have this problem only when you fill your tank I would check the fuel filter first. The fuel pump will also give you problems after filling the tank due to the extra load.

I am not sure on yours , but the newer ones you can replace the pump from the trunk area. You don't have to drop the tank. To access the pump remove the spare tire cover and you will see the pump cover.

2004 z71 tahoe when the gas gauge is at a quarter of a tank it won't crank. It acts like it is empty with gas.


Check your fuel filter if it needs replacement. Empty it out then connect it back. Try to start it again. Inspect the fuel filter if it filled with gasoline. Check if there is noise at the fuel tank to check if the pump is working. If it did not, inspect the fuse for your fuel pump and the relay. If both are good you may connect the fuel pump directly to the battery to see if it works. It may be a bad wiring.

Truck just quit at a redlight intersection today and acts like it has no gas. The gas guage also goes from empty too 1/2 tank too empty too full some times for no apperant reason!!


So do you know if you have gas in your tank or not? You need to check for fuel pressure to make sure your pump is working. Inside you fuel tank is a fuel pump module which consists of your fuel pump and fuel level sender. It sounds like you are going to need to replace that. Can you hear your fuel pump buzzing. Open you gas filler cap and put your ear next to it while having a helper turn the key to the run position not start position. You should hear it run for about 5-10 seconds and then shut off. If you don't hear it you have a problem with your pump. It can be with the wiring, feul pump relay, or the pump itself. It is usually the pump. But even if you can hear the pump you still need to check your fuel pressure as the pump may be buzzing but not working correctly. Also check your fuel filter.

2001 Durango acts like the gas tank is full during filling cutting off the pump. The only way to fill tank is to pump gas really slow


Chrysler and Dodge have a fuel vapor filter that allows air out of the gas tank but filters the harmful fumes. Usually the problem happens from topping off your gas after the gas pump stops due to the automatic shut off and then putting more gas in the tank (to make the bill an even $50. or to the next $5 increment, or pumping more in just because it fits). Anyway the filter gets saturated with gas, is not able to breath, and causes a vacuum in the tank. Because of this, the anti-siphon ball is not able to float around and sits at the opening of the fuel fill tube and won't allow any more gas to be put in (acts like the car is full). If you pump super duper slow like put a nickel to hold the gas pump handle, it will trickle in without a problem, but it takes forever! Solution, get the filter replaced and don't over fill the tank.

The fuel guage on my 2004 Chrysler Pacifica jumps around


This is a simple service fix. It's a glitch in the computer system. Take it to the dealer and there is some sort of code they can enter to "update" the car's computer.
Mine does it occasionaly, it annoying, but not harmful.
I've heard of some that will act up for a while, then stop, while others, have acted up and them the fuel gauge stays on empty.
Talk to the dealer.

Filling up gas it shuts the pump off immediately


If your vent tube isn't plugged, try turning the pump handle upside down. I have to do that with my mustang all the time. Ford has had gas filler problems for decades now.

It is the filler neck it causes splash back.
