There is a lock inside there, but it should only be actuated when you've locked your doors. By pushing the lock button on your key fob it locks your doors, rear hatch and your gas cap cover. Once you push the unlock button the lock inside will retract back allowing you to push on the cover. If you do have your doors unlocked, then it could be either the lock is not retracting as it should or the metal clip that the lock contacts with when in the out position may be bent out of shape and still in contact with the lock when the lock is retracted.

Gas cap stuck won't come off?


Grab a pair of channel locks to get a good grip on the cap and twist counter clockwise. The back pressure created in the tank from the gas depleting can make the cap seem impossible to remove.

2008 Toyota Camry gas-cap door release is stuck; how do you release it?


Hi fellow,
Your problem has two options ;first, you have to inspect the interior wire that pulls the lock of the gas cap.If found cut you should replace it at the mechanic's. Secondly, once the wire remains uncut or undamaged by any reason, the lock itself might be jammed due to the rust or misuse. Therefore, you are advised to use some anti rust liquid it wil work. Good Luck.

2004 grand prix check gas cap light on changed gas cap and still the same problem dont know what to do


Open the trunk, pull the carpet back to reveal the access to the fuel pump. The gas tank pressure sensor is located on top or the fuel pump. The connector has 3 wires, 1 black and 2 colored. Pull the plug off the sensor, put jumper across the 2 colored wires, tape it up with electrical tape. Replace the access cover, the carpet, close the trunk and never see that "CHECK GAS CAP" message again.

I am having difficulty opening the cover to the gas cap. The switch on the drivers side door won't release the external door so that I can remove the gas cap and fill my tank. HELP


The cable release for the gas door may have broken, try reading the Owner's Manual for a alternative way to release the door or call your local Volkswagen Dealer and ask to speak to someone in the Body Shop or a Service Technician to give you a solution.

I opened my gas cap and now it just wont close


The gas cap or the gas cover?

If the cap wont go back on then I don't know whats going on there.

If you mean the COVER or fuel door, then I would say your cable release is gummed up and sticking. Get some WD and spray the latching point on the car and then push the door in and let it spring back a couple times..spray again and repeat.....do this until the door stays shut. Then the next time you are getting an oil change get the station mechanic to spray the latch with some white lithium or other approved lubricant.

good luck and be careful.

Locating the fuel filter


You didn't state the year or engine size,,,, On the firewall,( passenger side, back of engine compartment, it's round) on fuel injected models, relieve pressure of fuel line before beginning- gas cap off,also must release pressure on fuel injected models- some have pressure release on top of filter, others on fuel rail,this will be a bolt on top of a bolt. Hold the bottom bolt (w/ open end wrench, loosen top bolt w/ 6mm wrench. Cover with rag, so you don't have gas shooting up in your face. Carb models: have 2 filters, one inline in engine compartment, 2nd under car attached to fuel tank. Open gas cap to relieve pressure before starting removal on carb models. countrycurt0

Gas cover stuck - manual backup?


my Jaguar X Type gas cap "sticks". I can open it by wedging a corner of a credit card in the left side or the cover, then go in the car and pull the lever. There are two flimsy metal bands that hold the cover in place and they sometimes bend and then the release doesn't work.  it should open easily with the credit card wedged in; then bend back the metal bands into shape.
