Question about 1996 Chrysler Sebring
My '96 Sebring convertible had the fuel pump replaced, a few years ago, and since then whenever I try to pump gas, the automatic shut off stops the gas from filling the tank. I have to go really slow the whole time and sometimes I only get a few cents of gas into the tank before it stops and splashes out. This is ridiculous. Sometimes I just give up at trying to get gas because it takes me about 10 minutes just to pump it or pump a little, pause, a little more, pause, a little more, pause, etc. Is there something I can replace or get fixed? My mechanic just says I pump too fast, but that is not the case. I pump at about $.01/second sometimes less.
It sounds like the vent hose or tube from the fuel tank to the side of the inlet assembly is restricted. It can be twisted or bent. I've seen one case where it was misrouted and smashed against the frame rail. The vent tube allows air to escape while filling with fuel.
