ONE THING YOU CAN CHECK IS THE SCREEN INSIDE THE FILL NECK BUT YOU MUST REMOVE THE TUBE THAT IS ON THE TANK. THERE IS A STRAINER ON THE BOTTOM OF THE TUBE THAT NOT ONLY PREVENTS SIPHONING OF THE FUEL BUT KEEPS DIRT AND LARGER PARTICLES FROM REACHING THE INSIDE OF THE TANK. IF THIS IS CLOGGED IT MAY HAVE BEEN VANDALS OR EVEN SMALL CHILDREN AT PLAY. IF THE CLAMP THAT HOLD THE NECK TO THE BOTTOM OF THE TANK IS THE CRIMP-ON TYPE THEN CAREFULLY CUT IT OFF THEN REPLACE WITH A STAINLESS ONE THAT CAN BE REUSED. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU. VERY CURIOUS TO KNOW. BUT EMISSIONWIZ KNOWS HIS STUFF SO I MAY BE WAY OFF. GOOD LUCK

Have 2000 Impala that won't take gas. Pump sensing full tank and turning off. What could cause this? evap system?


There are two pipes that go from the fill port to the tank. One big one to let the fuel in and one small one to let the air out. If air cannot get out, fuel cannot get in. When fuel stops going in the fuel pump assumes the tank is full and shuts off. The small one is plugged somewhere, hopefully one of the small rubber hoses. A work-around is to fill the tank slow enough that the pump does not shut off.

Check the filling tube (or hose) going to fuel tank for damage. Could be the "ball" just inside the tank where the filling tube is attached. Its there to prevent fuel from draining out of the tank in the event of a roll-over.
Tap on the tank in the area around the filling tube with a rubber mallet. This should "unstick" the ball. They do sometimes get stuck and wont let fuel into the tank.

Gas pump shuts off like its full many times while trying to refuel.


Usually a blockage in the filler tube or a vent problem.
You may have to take the filler tube off and inspect it. There should be a tube inside or outside the pipe to allow air pressure in the tank to equalize.

Hello Randy.
In modern vehicles there is a system in place to capture and burn the vapors when filling the fuel tank.
This consists of a carbon canister, hoses and valves.
Under certain conditions these valves need to close to test the system integrity.
In your case there is a valve that has stuck closed and not allowing vapors to vent through.
This is called a canister vent valve and is located at the rear underside of the car, under the trunk at the carbon canister.
It should be available at your local Ford dealer.
If you require further advise on this subject please ask me here.
Thank you for using FixYa.

2004 Ford Taurus takes 15 min plus to fill fuel tank, help!


theres a problem with the pipe that goes from the gas tank to the gas cap.Look under neath and see if the hose is pinched or bent.Another cause could be who ever owned it before had the tank out and they messed up the hose when they put it back in but that is differently the problem..

Filling the gas tank 2000 chevy impala


make sure that the little hose is clear of any restrictions and you can blow through it this will be the vent tube for the fuel tank. there is also a check ball that may be lodged in the tank and it is located in the tank right where the fill tube connects to the tank. you should be able to disconnect the tube and move it around with your finger. thanks and keep me updated or if you run into a problem

Ford Windstar 2001 Gas filling problem


The fule tank vent tube is blocked/clogged. It's the little hole next to the filler hose that invites spiders that clog it up. Blow out the tube and it fixes the problem.
