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.

When filling up the pump stops as if the tank is full. I know it's not as I can only pump about a quarter of a gallon of gas at a time. I can hold the handle so the flow of gas is so slow it will fill


run the fault codes as the problem is normally about venting and this is a purge valve for the canister problem. having said that there are lot of poorly designed fillers on the market that will not allow quick fills as the pump hose trigger keeps cutting of no no reason. You may have to just take your time when filling like most people do.
In this country lock fillers have been banned and you have to hold the trigger until the tank is full. Stops idiots from putting the nozzle in the tank and then wandering off and allowing the tank to over fill and create a dangerous situation..

Why is my 2004 pacifica not taking gas it acts like if the tank is full when it's not I can only pump like 10 dollars at a time


bad gas station pump, try different pump , ok now? ,if yes, call the 800 number there ,sticker on pump and report it so others dont waste time here.
if other pump handles fail? yes,.
that means the gas tank vents are bad.

the pump handle as a pressure trip valve. (detects full)
if the station handle is bad , it can do that. (hyper sensitive)
if the handle is good, then the cars vents are blocked, cause this
excessive back pressure, (fails)
there are other causes, all of them in or near the filler neck.
side hoses, on neck, and that antibackup valve at neck to tank juncture. it might have junk landed there.
get it serviced, if needed.

My car jerks, cuts when iddling and switches off when running


To fix the jerking rotate your tires and what do u mean by cuts when idling if it cuts off then there is a chance there is water in your gas tank due to precipitation just go to the gas station and put about a full tank but u need to keep a full tank in it when your not using for a while when I was locked up I couldn't let it idle without turning off so I would just sit in it and barley press the gas until it thought it was ok to let go and it ran good till my starter went out and the switching off you probably need to get a new gas pump line or whatever it's called I forget.

Cannot fill gas tank on 2002 Kia sedona. Even when you only pump 1 gallon, the pump clicks off like it is full. We have taken off the hoses but did not see any blockage.


I have a Kia Sedona 2005 and I can't fill it up with gas without the pump kicking off and I have tried several gas stations. Sometimes I can get a few gallons in with no problem but then it kicks off again and I have to spend twenty minutes dripping fuel into it until I loose patience. Help me!

Every time I fill up my 2002 Hyundai Elantra at gas station


Stop and talk to a dealer to see if they have a TSB on this problem,
Dodge had this problem and they corrected it by installing new tanks.

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.

Cannot freely pump gas into my 2000 ford taurus


The gas guage is a seprate problem, the gas fill hose may have a sharp ben in the hose or kink, the gas pump hase a shut off valve that shuts off the pump if gas does not flow freely ie:blockage or full tank, I would visualy inspect the filler hose from the gas cap to the tank for again sharp bends or kinks, if the filler hose is in anyway restricked the pump may asume the tank is full.
the gas guage: is usualy a simple flot on a rod in the tank (like a toilet tank has) instead of opening or closing a valve it operates a "potentiometer" veriable position sensor (kind of like a dimmer switch).
if the float gets stuck the guage will stay in that position, the guage gets the signal via the wire harnes, so check the electric circit.
A trick I used on one of my jeeps (I removed the guages ) I filled the tank, reset the trip odometer to zero, put a jeerycan and a couple gallons of gas in the jeep, then drove normaly a week or so till I ran out of gas. wrote down the mileage on the trip odometer. gerrycan gas got me to the gas station.
divided the mileage by half. I fill up the tank all the way the reset the trip odometer to zero, when I reach the half mileage of the tank I fill up again and repeat

Ford Windstar 2001 Gas filling problem


The fule tank vent tube is blocked/clogged. It's the little hole next to the filler hose that invites spiders that clog it up. Blow out the tube and it fixes the problem.
