Usually a sign of a vent problem in the filler pipe or the gas tank.
Air pressure in the tank has to be released to allow fuel to enter the space.

There is a vent hose that comes from the tank back to the filler neck, it could also be the filler neck hose. Might be kinked or seperated.

Try to take a look at the fuel fill hose that goes to the tank. Does it look resticked at all?

SOURCE: 2006 mercury mountaineer interior lights will not shut off

There is some problem with the door switch(s) which should turn the lights off when the door is closed. Look closely at the switch and make sure that the proper contact is being made within the switch. There could be corrosion.

When I put gas in my Mountaineer it is filling the whole filler tube up and shuts the pump off no matter how slow you pump it.


Take it to the dealer and have them modify your filler nozzle. Some other cars had the same problem that was fixed under warranty.

99 mercury tracer won't let gas into tank from station nozzels.


Modern gas pumps have a sensor that shuts off the flow of fuel when the tank is full or it senses near the nossle tip. They also have a back splash guard that keeps fuel from splashing back on the handle. If you have some sort of flap inside your fuel tank mouth the pump may sense that the tank is already full or the back splash guard may be keeping the nozzle from fully inserting into the tank causing the same out come. I have a 1977 Triumph Spitfire that requires me to hold the fuel pump in place or the fuel won't pump. Try holding the fuel nozzle in place and see if that makes any difference.
