Question about Chrysler Sebring

Gas tank lid wont close

I am not sure what the part would be called, but it will not close. It is the part that moves has you put in the gas nozle, then the little metal piece returns has you remove the gas noozle. I filled up yesterday and noticed has I finished that it did not return. I do have a gas cap that twist in still but that part wont close. Today my car almost stalled, so I am wondering if I possible got air in my tank bc of the fact that it didnt close. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The flap in the fuel filler pipe will not affect the vehicle if it's open or closed or not there at all.There is air in the gas tank at all times displacing the gas as you use the fuel.

Your number 1 O2 sensor is bad replace it. this is the O2 sensor attached to your headers. Could be faulty sensor or the air/fuel ratio is offset. But replace the sensor its not running effeciently.

SOURCE: takes forever to fuel up

I have found with various cars that the speed the gas is pumped at makes a huge difference. Try wiggling the input nozzle around so it may be parallel to the ground, and just experiment. Or just slow down your pumping speed. Sometimes more goes in faster than the fuel tank neck can handle.

SOURCE: chry 300c 06 stalls after filling tank

Tell me when you fill up how far do you go before it stops,,then how far does it go the second time and the 3rd time ,,Do the times get longer each time,, if so then your problem isent a big deal.
The problem you might have is that the return fuel pipe from the engine returning fuel back in to the tank,, and the TANK breather pipe which has to let air in as you cannot take fuel out and not let air back in ,,so it causes a vacuum in the tank... So check the breather before any thing else .. OR dont fill it up any more than the first click of the pumps .
Let me know how you get on Ron

I need to open the gas tank from inside the car i do not where

There will not be an opening for the fuel tank inside the car. This would be an enormous safety risk as you would have volatile fumes in side a confined space. May be you are wanting to open the filler door in the side of the car from inside the car which is a vastly different question

Washer fluid wont work

Start with basics. check if resevoir is empty. most likely a frozen nozle. Maybe a frozen, blocked or kinked/broken hose. If you are in cold area, warm up car in garage add washer fluid with low freeze temperture. If not froze; look up diagrams online and check hose, filter screen in resevoir, and tip of nozle.

Fuel comes back out fill tube when fueling 04titan king cab

With the information you've provided, one cam only imagine that you are obviously over filling the tank.

So this leads me to suspect that maybe (just maybe) your gas gauge is saying you are on empty, or 1/4 tank or a 1/2 tank whatever, etc. And you are wanting to make sure it is full.

I presume it always says this and that perhaps you need to have the sending unit replaced inside your fuel tank.

Otherwise, if all things are in working order and you meant to say that the Pump Nozle that the service station uses (where you fuel up) is not shutting off when your tank is full.

One of two things are happening,

In the case of a pump handle that has an auto lever, either they have a faulty pump nozle, in which case you need to talk with them about this.


It is a manual Nozle, in which case you are holding the lever personally and are over filling your tank...

It would be advisable to look up the total fuel capacity of your tank and make a note of approximately how many gallon are in it before fueling up.

This way, if you know there are say around 5 gallons and you have an 15 gallon tank.
Adding even 10 gallons you would be running the risk of over flowing since you are only estimating say 5 gallons at the beginning, maybe it is 5 1/2 or even closer to 6. Therefore only about 9 gallons could be added without over flowing...

Hopefully you'll have found something useful in this.

Good Luck and happy motoring

Fuel guage drops to empty then back up, wont take gas in tank

The fuel guage could be a faulty fuel sender unit or possibley an electrical fault in the dash.
The only reason I can think of that it won't take gas is that it is full. You could try pulling the filler nozle out a couple of inches when you are trying to add fuel. . They work on back pressure , and if the pressure backs up , the pump handle clicks off.

My Volvo S70 has a gas tank lid that locks when closed. There is a release on the driver's door. Yesterday when I tried to use the release on the driver's door to open the gas tank lid the gas tank lid...

Is this a lever or button you pull or push? If it's a button than it must be electric and there is likely a fuse somewehre in the link for both trunk and gas lid that may be under the dash, by the engine, or somwhere else.

If it's a lever than it's likely a cable that runs back to them...but not sure how BOTH would be 'broken'. Does the lever feel 'different' as in loose or less tension than in the past?

I think my fuel pump is going on my 1993 dodge Dakota 4X4 3.9 motor and the fuel pump is in the Gas Tank . Can I put an Electric Fuel Pump out side of the Tank on the fuel line instead of having to drop...

Yes you can install an inline fuel pump but dropping the tank is pretty easy.It'll take you just a few hours at the most( you wont get gas in your face).And it'll be good for another 10-15 years or more.Make sure it's close to empty.If you do install an inline pump put it as close to the tank as possible after the filter.

Unable to put gas into the tank. Pump keeps shutting off like the tank is full, it's not.

There is a filter on the tank vent that is plugged. It is not letting the air escape from the tank during fillup causing positive pressure which will will shut off the gas pump. I don't know where it is on your model but some are under the back behind the fuel tank. It is usually a 6" square plastic box with a hose on it and louvers on the sides.

Gas Gauge won't move

Replace the fuel sensor / sending unit, it is inside the gas tank, it is a lot of work to drop the gas tank, I have done it on other cars... If you want to do it make sure the tank is almost empty it is very heavy with all that gas inside make sure there is no open flames or cigarretes close
Good Luck
