Was this car in an accident and if so perhaps the filler tube was bent in the process.inspect or have a reputable shop inspect for any damage to tube or surrounding areas. Perhaps there might be a forien object that got lodged in the filler tube.

    You could also make sure that the vent in the filler tube is allowing air to escape while fuel is being pumped into your fuel tank otherwise the fuel pumps nozzle will experience " lock up " and not allow the fuel to flow freely from the nozzle into your filler tube to the fuel tank.

I was filling up my car (92 camry 2.2) at the gas station. There was about 1 bar of gas left and after almost 10 litres the gas spilled out at the button , a lot came out not like drips, but i managed to...

go back to the garage that did the work- they did not replace the the fuel pump/sending unit properly- the top of your gas tank is open- that is the leak- and since the sending unit is improperly installed- is not allowing tank float to move and show how much gas you have correctly.

Gas doesn't go into tank easily - wants to spit back out. pump keeps clicking off and it takes a long time to put gas in tank. what could problem be? car is a 2000 camry

theres a one way valve in the filler neck of the gas tank and that is spring loaded. it maybe getting jammed up. will need to remove filler necvk and check it's operation. pretty much only thing down there that it could be.

Can't fill the gas tank on 98 Toyota Camry

I have a 2000 camry that I just fixed today. there is a vent tube and valve on the carbon canister that is located just behind the gas tank and above the cross member. this vent tube will get plugged up by ( of all things ) spiders, dirt daubers, and I even had a mouse pack the tube with dog food. Just remove the tube and the valve from the canister and clean them out. You will now be able to fill your gas tank again.

Gas tank backs up when filling, shutting off hose

I have seen the same issue, the nozzles click off at some stations, others do not. One thing that I have tried and had a bit of success with is pressing the nozzle real tight against the filler hole. The rush of air coming up the filler neck is what clicks off the nozzle, not the fuel. So, pressing in tighter seems so let the pressure equalize in the filler neck. Try it, maybe it will work for you.
