Pull the nozzel out a little and don't squeeze the handle for full force.The more you squeeze the faster gas will flow the less you squeeze the slower the flow(to much flow)

I have a 2000 Hyundai Accent. Whenever I go to fill up my gas tank, the pump clicks every minute or so (like it does when your tank is full). Is my float stuck at full? How do I get it unstuck?


Kaylie, try letting off on the gas pump trigger a little and pull nozzle out of fill port approx. 1/2", this will normally slow the flow rate of pump down and let air behind gas and stop shutting off. Some pumps are just set to pump too fast/ too much volume. If this does not work for you, have a Tech. check and see if there is some other restriction,plugged vent or problem with the vapor canister. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How do I fix my gas tank. I put gas in but it doesn't let me pump without clicking every few seconds. It's not the adjustment of the pump where you move it and it fills.


I don't know year--make--model?
Check vent line and/or evap system. The air in the tank has to go somewhere or it will burp back up the fill tube and shut off the gas pump.

When you replaced the tank, did you check or replace the tank filler neck hose or the vent hose? That is where the issue is.

My isuzu Ascender is giving me problems every time I try to fill the gas tank It shuts down every second so it gives you a hard time to put gas in


there is a problem with the air trying to get out as the fuel is being pumped in . This activates the shut of in the nozzle of the hose . Try holding the trigger just open so that you control the amount of fuel flowing in . Try rotating the nozzle in the filler a few degrees so that the fuel coming back will no activate the shut of system. I have found some pump systems are extremely sensitive to the air/ fuel flow back so I am selective in which pumps I pull up at for this reason. Remember you do no have to pull the trigger full bore when filling as you can control the setting with your fingers.

Can't put gas in my 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix


I doubt it.
Usually the problem is a blockage in the fill tube, sometimes the vent for the tank is not working. But there are several components to the EVAP system.
I would check the filler tube first.

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.

GASOLINE TANK FILLER VENT IS BLOCKED


You need to drop tanks and find out where blockage is and remove it! Temporarily, you can fill from a gas can, slowly so air can escape while filling! I'd at least look underneath and find out if the vent pipe to the fill neck is crimped anywhere.

Gas shuts off every few seconds when filling gas tank


there is a vent tube that runs along side the fuel tank fill pipe, this tube allows air to went out as fuel is put in,if it kinks (it is very soft thin plastic tube) then u end up with your problem, replace the vent tube, the fill pipe and vent tube come as one part.
