You have the plastic gas cap that clicks when it has been tightned enough. The little ratchet mechanisim inside is worn out. Just take a large pair of pliers and pop the top off the cap then you can grab the lower part with the pliers to remove and then throw away. Then just get another fuel cap at your local parts store.

Usually indicates that you fuel cap may be bad and needs replacement. This happens when the gas cap allows air to seep in. Please rate me!!

I have a 1994 T-Bird that is pouring gas into the engine. There is nothing wrong with the plugs or wires or fuel injectors or O2 sensor. Two repair places have not been able to figure out why it is doing...

try the fuel regulator,you may be able to un-plug the fuel regulator vaccumn and if gas spurts out the top then its bad(while running or cranking)

T bird stalls on idol?

Check all vacuum lines and electric connections. It sounds like a Throttle position sensor or an EGR valve problem. If it idles too slow there are a few screws to turn like on the old carburetors. The vacuum routing is on a label and you may have the wrong hose somewhere.
