Question about 1998 Ford Windstar

We have a 1998 Ford Windstar. When pumping gas, the pump shuts off constantly. We can only pump less than .50 at a time. We have tried adjusting placement of the fuel nozzle, doesn't help.

The filler neck would have to be replaced. ford has had problems with their filler necks in that year. it consist of 2 tubes one inside the other, that other tube could be kink causing pressure that shuts of the fuel pump.

    that i am not to sure different cities have different labor rates. and the fuel tank would have to be removed. you can do some research on the filler neck and try to find a good one at a junk yard. if accessible. or any parts store. then just get a quote from a local repair shop. if he does not have the tools to do it himself.

Well code 1450 for a Ford product is a problem with the gas tank venting system.
I would think the pump in the tank is blowing the fuse, and it could be from excessive pressure in the tank.
