The fill vent is inside the fill tube . your fill is 2 inch and inside it is a 3/4 inch that your gas goes down it runs from the filler neck to the 3/4 mark inside the tank your vent is the area between the outside if the inside tube and the inside of the outside tube . and vents through the gas pump nozzle ... gm has a problem with there trucks where the inside fill tube gets kinked after a while and kicks off the pump . i have never seen anyone fix this problem and have it work for long . i have a 2003 chevy truck same problem have to fill real slow . pulled tank , checked all lines changed fill neck ( flapper door in fill neck bad ) .... put it back . same problem . good luck . i gave up

2004 mercury sable gas go's into tank real slow


This is caused by an obstructed filler air pipe vent, this keeps the air from coming out of the tank as you fill, this causes the filler nozzle at the station to shut off as the gas backs up in the filler pipe, the air vent pipe is either kinked or blocked in some way. The vent tube runs down along side the gas fill tube and is all one part, replace it.

I,m having trouble filling my gas tank. The pump keeps shutting off.


The vent on the tank is restricted and the pump nozzle can't take all the air coming from the tank as it fills. Many gas stations across the country have vapor recovery nozzles designed to capture air from your fuel tank and vent it back into the tank under ground, and out the roof vent pipe on top of the building. It's for fuel vapor emissions reduction. Until you put a few gallons in the tank, pull the boot back a little with your fingers to unseat it from the filler neck, then let go and you should be o.k. If it keeps shuting off after that, then you may have a problem with your own vapor recovery system not working properly. Check other nozzles and see if they all are that way. Mabe it's the station.

Try to fill gas tank, gas pump nozzle clicks off, sometimes as much as 10 times in 1 gallon pumped. Something wrong with pipe to tank?


There should be an air vent coming from the top of the gas tank back to the top of the fuel tank. Possibly kinked or pinched, try pulling the fuel nozzle about half way out and filling the tank on the lowest setting the fuel pump will let you.

2005 chevy coloardo wont take fuel when pumping gas shuts of after you get about 1/2 gal take to long to fill tank


You need to replace the hose that vents the filler pipe.It goes from the pipe to the tank and if it is plgged you have no way to get the air in the tank that is beig replaced by fuel to get out of the tank exept for the sam e hole that the nozzle is in.

2005 Ford Crown Victoria Trouble filling gas tank. Gas backs up in the filler nck and clicks pump off. Have to run as slow as pump will run to fill.


The tank vent pipe may be blocked or kinked, it usually branches off the main tank filler pipe and can be seen from under the car.

2003 Chevy S-10 Crew Cab slow filling tank which splashes back and shuts off gas pump hose. ? filler pipe problem.


Sounds like the vent is pluged, its either next to the filler pipe or inside the filler pipe, but in any case it will come from the gas tank
( most likely on top of tank) to vent the air thats traped in the tank, when its pluged there is no other place for the air to go but out the filler tube.

We have an "04 Suzuki Verona that does the same thing, we have found that it is not the station as much as it is the angle that the tank inlet is on. When you put the gas nozzle in, it fills with some air to replace the gas comming out of the nozzle. Unless you find a place that has a higher pressure pump, you are in a long and "Clicking Off" ownership when it time to pump gas. For the record, I have noticed that if I chose the lowest setting on the handle, the pump will ussually fill about $10 at a time. two or three of those, and its a done deal. Hope this helps you.
