Question about 2002 Nissan Sentra
I can put about a dollars worth of gas in but then the gas backs up and shuts the pump off?
There is a black box behind the drivers side rear wheel. It has 2 bolts that hold it on. It will have lines running from the gas tank to this box. Take this box off. There is a electrical connection along with a vent line from the tank on a T that will unplug from this box. Take the T and look inside the vent part of it. There is a plunger that gets stuck. I took pb blaster and squarted inside. Then I used a small screw driver and worked it back and forth till it did not stick any more. reassembled it and it worked fine. it took a couple of fill ups before the light on the dash went out by itself.

There is a flexiable plastic vent tube that runs along the fill pipe where u fill the tank, it lets air out (or vent) as you fill with gas , u will need to pull this and replace it, nothing else causes this fill issue.
