Question about Chevrolet Metro
When I try to put gas in the car the pump shuts off after half a gallon. My husband already checked the filler tube and the vent tube attached to it. The problem seems to be in another part of the fuel tank venting/evap system. I can't find any info about even what the components are.
There is a vent valve usually mounted up by the frame near the gas tank-On a 2003 chevy s-10 it has just one large hose and one wire connector going to it. When this valve goes bad it doesn't allow the tank to be vented causing gas to spray out when refueling and usually air will rush out when you open the gas caop. Dealer cost on the gm Part # 2593-2571 is about $20.00 and it's really easy to change

Sorry I am not sure on this but it might be a clogged evap filter which makes the tank pressure up when filling which shuts the pump off .. have him crawl under it and follow the fuel lines (2) forward till he finds a canister which might be where the filter is .. it has to be a vent problem .. some have a small vent tube which runs back up to the fillspout too.. have him look again and closer he will find the problem .. Thanks Jerry
