I have the same problem it is caused by dusty and or muddy roads. Just inside the fender by your filler tube there is a filter just reach in and remove the hose from it when you fill up with gas besure to replace it afterwards. Or get a new one from your jeep dealer it cost about 13.00. It is a poor desine it is in the road of all the dirt and mud . If someone knows a more permenant fix I would like to know.

Check for a foriegn object within the filler tube. I think that if the vent isnt open in the filler tube when fueling your car, this could cause the fuel nozzle to stop because of back pressure. Air needs to be released from the fuel tank as fuel enters the tank ,otherwise,this problem will occur. Have the vent inspected to see if theres a block or perhaps, theres something wedged in your filler tube. Im not sure if this car has a filter leading into the gas tank but if so, Id check that as well.

My 1995 corolla while driving press gas petal car hesitate car kinda jerks


Could be a number of issues.

1. Fuel filter a clogged fuel filter will cause restriction in the lines and starve a vehicle for fuel causing hesitation.
2. a weak fuel pump if your fuel pump is going sometimes it can not supply the proper fuel and pressure.
3. water in your gas can cause this as well depending on how long you have had this problem especially if it started right after you filled your tank.
4. Spark plugs and wires basically a tune up.

hope this helps some.

In many vehicles 2000 and up, auto makers started putting a strainer type filter between the fuel door and fuel tank to help catch large particles before hitting the fuel, which could mess up the pump, sending unit, and clog your fuel filter quickly. It was also added, in my opinion, to help prevent siphoning. So I would try to look and see if that filter is plugged or clogged. Another thing it may be is sometimes at fuel pumps, the pumps themselves pump the fuel too quickly, making the fuel back up on itself.

The evaporative system failed on emissions for my 87 Ford Ranger 2.9l engine, any suggestions what might be wrong


It can't be filled up because it leaks, or won't take anymore gas? Check the hose from the fuel filler to the tank for kinks or restrictions, if you have leaks, fill it up and trace the leak. Either problem will cause EVAP codes, hard starts, and cause vehicle to die.

Diesel Filter light


Hi there:
I suggest to check fuel pressure at the shrader valve by the fuel filter, it sounds as if you have a restriction in the fuel system, the plugged fuel filter light will come on at 7psi, you can take and blow air back through fuel line back to tank with fill cap off for diagnosing only, not a fix, if it runs better pull tank and check the screen in the pickup for plugging.



Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.
