    Well it is my daughter's car but it is a 04 model. There is a filter going into the fuel tank we had changed called a dust filter because her light came on and they said that was what it was. She still can hardly get any gas in her tank!

    Have you tried to pull the nozzle out of the gas door a little, or push the handle slowly (not all the way down) i've seen that on other vehicles where it will shut the gas pump off..

Check to see if the flap is still attached to the filler tube. Should be noticeable as soon as you remove the gas cap. If there is just an open hole, the flap may have come off and is causing a blockage in the tube leading to the tank. I'll try to get a pic of what it should look like.

When fueling my 2002 hyundai 350L the fuel keeps stopping as if full,I have to fill it very slow


This happens when the tank ventilation system gets clogged, or the bottom of the fuel tank is bent inward. When you fill the tank it displaces air as the fuel goes in. It acts like its full because it can't vent the air out of the tank

Gas tank will not fill up on 2001 ford expedition


Gas as in gasoline or gas as in LPG gas? If its petrol, the fuel sender may be out of adjustment. (Usually means a new sender) If its LPG, the fuel stations are set to automatically shut off at 80% full. The gas tank will never actually be full to the brim but the gauge should be showing full if the gas nozzle keeps shutting off. Have a look on the LPG tank itself, they have a little gauge on them which shows how full it is. I have 2 tanks on my car , when "full" or when the pump shuts down, the tank gauges show just under full but the gauge on the cars dash shows full (2005 BA Ford)

Engine cranks, but doesn't start on my '97 sebring. just happened. drove perfectly yesterday.


if you just filled it with gas it may be your fuel pump. believe it or not when you fill the tank sometimes the pump goes. turn the ignition to ON without cranking it and with all accesories off. Listen for a whir or humm sound-if you dont hear the sound your pump is not working.

Fuel pump is bad. need to replace it. do i need an eletcric fuel pump or a regular fuel pump..i hve a 2002 chrysler sebring conv. LX 2.7L


All vehicles with fuel injection use a high-pressure pump mounted inside the gas tank. This is virtually all vehicles built since about 1990. I don't know about this particular vehicle, some have an access panel above the tank that allows you to remove the pump without dropping the tank, others don't. Dropping a nearly full tank of gas is no easy task. Try asking your auto parts store or the Chrysler parts counter if this car has such an access panel.

By the way, the pump is immersed in the fuel, and uses the fuel to cool the pump. Never let your tank get below 1/4 full to reduce overheating of the pump, which shortens its life. Occasionally is OK, but running below 1/4 tank on a regular basis will cut the life of the pump significantly.

2001 Durango acts like the gas tank is full during filling cutting off the pump. The only way to fill tank is to pump gas really slow


Chrysler and Dodge have a fuel vapor filter that allows air out of the gas tank but filters the harmful fumes. Usually the problem happens from topping off your gas after the gas pump stops due to the automatic shut off and then putting more gas in the tank (to make the bill an even $50. or to the next $5 increment, or pumping more in just because it fits). Anyway the filter gets saturated with gas, is not able to breath, and causes a vacuum in the tank. Because of this, the anti-siphon ball is not able to float around and sits at the opening of the fuel fill tube and won't allow any more gas to be put in (acts like the car is full). If you pump super duper slow like put a nickel to hold the gas pump handle, it will trickle in without a problem, but it takes forever! Solution, get the filter replaced and don't over fill the tank.

2001 Chrysler Sebring, gas tank is 1/2 full. The gauge just started bouncing from 1/2 a tank to empty and back again.


it sounds like a bad wire to the fuel sending unit or the sending unit is no good,check the ground connections at gas tank, will need to follow plug that plugs into fuel pump asm, follow it back checking the connection and for frayed or loose wires. good luck., hope this helps you.
