Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix
You have to manually hold the pump because the fuel backs up and shuts the pump off continuously
Usually a blockage in the small vent pipe inside the filler pipe, or the vent for the gas tank.

Fuel is coming up your inlet tube and telling the pump mechanism that your tank is full. When filling your tank, it has to purge air in order to make room for the new load of fuel that you are trying to dispense into it. This is done via a hose that attaches to the top of your filler/inlet tube, and the hose goes back down to the tank. The hose likely has a kink, or some sort of blockage not allowing proper venting, and therefore the pump believes your tank to be full. The fix is to remove this hose and free the blockage or kink in order for your tank to vent back up to the top properly. I believe some manufacturers call this hose a "Reverse Overflow". Good Luck! I hope you find this very helpful!

Hi you may need to turn the position of the pump to another angle, some cars are very awkward to fill up, my current car is the same I have to hold the fuel pump on its side to get the fuel in.
Hope this helps
