    not funny , probably flooded evap hoses with fuel and that will stall engine , hence flooded with fuel , let it sit for a day so fuel can evaporate or leak down before trying to start , severe engine damage can occur , pure stupidity for trying to add fuel while car is running , very minor spark from you or the car will ignite fumes , even static electricity can ignite fumes

Refueled my new 2013 X5 for first time yesterday; gas nozzle did not "shut off" when filled and gas spurted all over. Have never had this happen before in any vehicle I've ever owned or refueled. Anyone...


Did the car store or was not used for a while or been in an accident I think the (float ) level for the tank has been moved or broken Like in a toilet if the float does not work water will run for ever In a mitsubishi shogun pajero the tank is easily approcheable on the rear of the seat I ' m not sure on the BMW Best ask and get your mechanic to change it Good luck

98 ford windstar van ran out of gas and now wont start even after refueling.


To review - - the fuel pump in the tank pumps fuel to the injectors.
There is a fuel shut-off which works in a wreck to prevent a fire.
If the plunger is down, the switch is on. Normal.

It is possible the fuel lines are full of air which would take a long time to purge by cranking the engine. Sometimes you have to use starting fluid or other means to "run" the engine long enough to get gas back into the injectors.
As long as the engine cranks, the battery is fine.
It is also possible the pump was damaged when the tank was run empty. The pump uses liquid fuel to cool and lubricate the electric pump. It can overheat when running the tank below 1/4 full.
It is also possible the fuel filter was clogged with junk from the bottom of the tank.
I would get someone to check for fuel pressure at the injectors and try some carb cleaner or starting fluid in the intake hose next.

Having trouble filling the fuel tank. Pump shuts off every 10-15 seconds. Any suggestions?


First, This can be caused by trying to refuel with the engine running. If the engine was running when you were refueling, the evaporative emissions system could have been in PURGE mode at the time. This will cause the vent solenoid for your fuel system to be closed and the air trapped inside the fuel tank is what was causing your problem. If this is the case, shutting the ignition switch off when refueling will fix the problem.

Otherwise, the vent solenoid could be sticking or the charcoal canister could be saturated. The canister could be coming apart inside and clogging the vent solenoid with charcoal pellets. There are Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs) covering this subject on several Ford models. However, I did not find any TSBs that apply directly to your model. So, to put it simply, your EVAP system as well as your fill tube should be checked for resrictions. If you did not try to refuel with the engine running, my bets are on a sticking vent solenoid valve.

2001 GMC Jimmy is Hard to start after refueling only. Runs great after finally starting until next refuel. Tried new fuel cap but engine light comes on and shows P1441 on code reader. Says it could be Evap...


Try filling up a little less. To me it sounds like a vapor lock issue which clears after you burn off the top bit of gas.. Next time you need fuel up be sure to keep track of how much you put in. Another idea is to run the tank down and then only fill up to half a tank. If the problem clears then you know that you're having a vapor issue probably due to gas saturation of the canister (which can happen if you overfill the tank).

2006 jeep liberty will not take gas keeps clicking off gas pump. 3rd time at dealer. dealer has no idea what's wrong


The ORVR (On-Board Refueling Vapor Recovery) system consists of a unique fuel tank, flow management valve, fluid control valve, one-way check valve and vapor canister.

The ORVR (On-Board Refueling Vapor Recovery) system is used to remove excess fuel tank vapors. This is done while the vehicle is being refueled..

Fuel flowing into the fuel filler tube (approx. 1 inches I.D.) creates an aspiration effect drawing air into the fuel fill tube. During refueling, the fuel tank is vented to the EVAP canister to capture escaping vapors. With air flowing into the filler tube, there are no fuel vapors escaping to the atmosphere. Once the refueling vapors are captured by the EVAP canister, the vehicle's computer controlled purge system draws vapor out of the canister for the engine to burn. The vapor flow is metered by the purge solenoid so that there is no, or minimal impact on driveability or tailpipe emissions.

As fuel starts to flow through the fuel fill tube, it opens the normally closed check valve and enters the fuel tank. Vapor or air is expelled from the tank through the control valve and on to the vapor canister. Vapor is absorbed in the EVAP canister until vapor flow in the lines stops. This stoppage occurs following fuel shut-off, or by having the fuel level in the tank rise high enough to close the control valve. This control valve contains a float that rises to seal the large diameter vent path to the EVAP canister. At this point in the refueling process, fuel tank pressure increases, the check valve closes (preventing liquid fuel from spiting back at the operator), and fuel then rises up the fuel filler tube to shut off the dispensing nozzle.
