    Are you leaving the ignition on while filling up? I've heard it can cause the vent valve in the tank to not open which will trigger the shut off on the gas pump.

When filling the tank, stop filling when the pump clicks off. It sounds like you are overfilling the tank getting gas onto the built in evaporator.

Just stop filing when pump clicks off.

How do i replace the coolant in my 96 dodge caravan after i flush the system

Make sure all the drains are closed, start filling the rad and allow the coolant time to drain down, then fill again. Keep filling the rad unit it no longer drains down, just make sure to stop filling it when the level in the rad is just barely visible when looking down inside it. Now fill the overflow bottle to the lowest level mark. Start the car and turn you heater on to full heat. Let it warm up to proper temp, may/may not need to put more in rad. Keep an eye on the level in the rad it will expand and may overflow, if it looks like it will overflow use yout tester to remove some fluid. Once you see the coolant flowing throug the rad wait a few minutes, then put the rad cap on. Let it run a few more minutes to get the rest of the air out, then drive like normal. Check the fluid level in the overflow bottle (engine cold) over the next few days fill to proper level as needed.

When filling up the pump stops as if the tank is full. I know it's not as I can only pump about a quarter of a gallon of gas at a time. I can hold the handle so the flow of gas is so slow it will fill

run the fault codes as the problem is normally about venting and this is a purge valve for the canister problem. having said that there are lot of poorly designed fillers on the market that will not allow quick fills as the pump hose trigger keeps cutting of no no reason. You may have to just take your time when filling like most people do.
In this country lock fillers have been banned and you have to hold the trigger until the tank is full. Stops idiots from putting the nozzle in the tank and then wandering off and allowing the tank to over fill and create a dangerous situation..

Filling up with gas will keep stoping the gun

The most common cause is a venting problem in the tank, or a blockage in the filler pipe.

When i turn my steering wheel it makes an awful whinning sound. The first time this happened i put Lucas stop leak power steering fluid in and it stopped. that was mayb a month ago, and now it's doing...

You have a leak somewhere.. If filling the pump does not stop the noise then the pump is going bad. Be sure the leak is at the pump before you change the pump or else the new pump might go bad as well from being low on fluid.

Its likely that filling the pump back up should stop the noise though unless you have run it a while its empty.

How many quarts of coolant?

completely empty, including block, most systems hold about 10 quarts, sometimes just a bit more. if adding after a repair, you can use an inexpensive hydrometer to check the concentration (should be base-lined at 50/50) In very cold climates you can go a bit heavier and re-adjust when summer comes. If adding to a new (empty) engine, just use 50/50 and fill it till it's full. Begin by filling with engine off, then start it up and continue filling with heater on high heat. Turn the engine off just before it reaches full operating temp and leave it off for about three minutes, then re-start and continue filling. That allows the thermostat to open and limits back-up that happens just before that. Always check carefully for leaks...running with cap off, then with cap on and again after a short test drive. It only takes a few minutes to do and can save you big problems later on down the road.
Aside from being a conversation point, knowing how much the system holds isn't half as important and getting it full after working on it!!

2002 Saturn Vue starts when it wants to. We replaced the fuel filter and it seemed to work for about 2 weeks then I got stranded again. I've heard several things from the battery, spark plugs, crank censor...

I know this is the last thing you want to hear, but if you have a check engine light on you need to scan to get the trouble code. The only thing I can think of is that when you filled up you may have filled up too far and gotten alot of fuel into the evap canister. I know this sounds funny, but if you keep filling the tank up all the way till it's almost coming out you may been inadvertantly getting fuel into the evap canister. You won't know this for sure until you scan it though. This is usually a problem after continuous filling up past the "auto stop". In other words.... When pump stops. Stop pumping. I really hope this helps. This is all I can come up with without actually seeing the car.
