Make sure that the little hose is clear of any restrictions and you can blow through it this will be the vent tube for the fuel tank. there is also a check ball that may be lodged in the tank and it is located in the tank right where the fill tube connects to the tank. you should be able to disconnect the tube and move it around with your finger. thanks and keep me updated or if you run into a problem

When I go to put gas in my 2005 pontiac vibe gt, the gas keeps shutting off while I am pouring. I have tried pushing the nozzle in further, bairly in, pumping slowly, pumping gas with it lifted, lowered,...


What happens if you fill from a portable gas can? No spills on the ground other than from the fill location? Do you have a "locking cover"? Air needs to come out of the tank, It is possible something has gotten into the fill neck of the tank preventing fuel from going into the tank. The portable gas can may reveal that kind of problem. Has anyone tried to work on the fuel system, perhaps the emission system? If so take it back. It almost sounds like the vacuum pump is "discharging" into the tank. So the correct "plumbing" connections have been compromised. or the pump is running backwards, so the electrical connections have been compromised. Is the car just back from collision repair? Take it back.

Have 2000 Impala that won't take gas. Pump sensing full tank and turning off. What could cause this? evap system?


There are two pipes that go from the fill port to the tank. One big one to let the fuel in and one small one to let the air out. If air cannot get out, fuel cannot get in. When fuel stops going in the fuel pump assumes the tank is full and shuts off. The small one is plugged somewhere, hopefully one of the small rubber hoses. A work-around is to fill the tank slow enough that the pump does not shut off.

Gas tank fills slowly, Dealership says the charcoal filter is plugged where is it located at and how do I clean it


As far as I know, the only charcoal filter is in the recirculation/evap system and it's up front where fuel lines enter carb/injector system. Cuts down emissions by recirculating/recycling fumes back to tank. There is a screen at the bottom of the fill spout into the tank to prevent gas theft by siphoning. Might check that screen for rocks etc that some nimwit might have dumped in there. Try to find someone with one of those little cameras with light they use to check cylinders through the spark plug holes. Run it down your fill spout a look around. Or else pay the really overpriced charges for the dealership to take out the tank and clean it.

Try to fill gas tank, gas pump nozzle clicks off, sometimes as much as 10 times in 1 gallon pumped. Something wrong with pipe to tank?


There should be an air vent coming from the top of the gas tank back to the top of the fuel tank. Possibly kinked or pinched, try pulling the fuel nozzle about half way out and filling the tank on the lowest setting the fuel pump will let you.

It takes 2 or 3 tries for the car to start; there's a strong gas smell and there's a drip coming from under the car on the left back passenger side. I think it may be a hole in the fuel line or a faulty...


There's a rubber hose like a radiator hose from the gas tank to where you fill your tank (the fill pipe) and a clamp on each end. Sometimes they do loosen up from vibration and bouncing up and down on bumpy roads.

2000 Camry Gas tank spits gas out 2-3 times before taking it


there is a vent pipe that runs along side the fill pipe, this allows the air to vent out of the tank as u fill, check it for obstrutions or a kink, u will need to remove it to check this out.

2004 hyundai accent. trouble filling gas tank


I have a 2005 Hyundai Accent, It is not possible to fill the tank if you are letting the petrol pump run at full speed.Trying to fill up quickly it will only build up pressure and cut off. Next time you fill up just pull the petrol pump handle half way, it will take longer to fill but you wont get the blow back. Modern petrol pumps are getting quicker all the time.Hope this helps you.

Cant put much gas in tank w/o it coming back out


It souds like the air return line from the fuel filler pipe is plugged. When you fill up the car the air has to escape from the tank or else the fuel backs up into the filler neck shutting off the fuel nozzle. The air pipe is housed in the fuel filler pipe and lets the air escape as the fuel is going into the tank. Remove the filler neck and inspect air bypass line to see if it is kinked or plugged.

GASOLINE TANK FILLER VENT IS BLOCKED


You need to drop tanks and find out where blockage is and remove it! Temporarily, you can fill from a gas can, slowly so air can escape while filling! I'd at least look underneath and find out if the vent pipe to the fill neck is crimped anywhere.
