There is a vent tube that runs along side the fuel tank fill pipe, this tube allows air to went out as fuel is put in,if it kinks (it is very soft thin plastic tube) then u end up with your problem, replace the vent tube, the fill pipe and vent tube come as one part.

You may also try not inserting the hose all the way in. This may be your problem.

How do I fix my gas tank. I put gas in but it doesn't let me pump without clicking every few seconds. It's not the adjustment of the pump where you move it and it fills.


I don't know year--make--model?
Check vent line and/or evap system. The air in the tank has to go somewhere or it will burp back up the fill tube and shut off the gas pump.

Can't put gas in my 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix


I doubt it.
Usually the problem is a blockage in the fill tube, sometimes the vent for the tank is not working. But there are several components to the EVAP system.
I would check the filler tube first.

Gas pump shuts off while filling tank constantly


like answer number 2 up there, California has a Fume Collector over the nozzle, and extends over the hose itself.... its really important NOT to "top it off" after the nozzle shuts off automatically.... it has a tendancy to fill up that vapor space with gas, and you can try to put gas in your car, but it stops each time you pull the "trigger" on the handle (acts like the tank is full) The service station person needs to come out and drain out the excess gas from the hose vapor space. (they are quite familiar with this.... it happens a lot)

When filling gas tank on 2004 toyota corolla it keeps shutting off as if the gas tank is full, can only put in a little at a time.


When taking gas cap off give it a few seconds for the pressure to escape from the tank. Also you may not be putting the nozzle in far enough for the fume preventor(the rubber thing on the nozzle)to press down. That will make it stop pumping gas. Sometimes you have to press the rubber down when it is cold out.

When I pump gas, the gas pump clicks off every few seconds or so. I can't get more than 2 gallons in the tank before it clicks off. I takes me like 10 minutes to fill my tank.


is this happening at the same pump??? Each pump has a tiny vacuum line that's located in the spout. When the gas reaches a certain level and starts to cause a vacuum, the pump shuts off

I can't put gas in my car without the pump shutting off every five seconds. I think the metal flap where you put the gas pump into the car fell into the line. what can i do to get it out?


On most modern gas pumps there is a sensor in the tip of the nozzle. When it feels to much pressure or liquid it shuts the pump off. When you are filling your tank you need to leave a little room for air to come out. Try to not put the nozzle in as far and see if that will work. You will only need to leave a little bit of room. Hope it helps!

1996 Chrysler Sebring fuel pump automatic shut off


It sounds like the vent hose or tube from the fuel tank to the side of the inlet assembly is restricted. It can be twisted or bent. I've seen one case where it was misrouted and smashed against the frame rail. The vent tube allows air to escape while filling with fuel.
