Question about 2000 Dodge Durango

When fueling pump clicks off repediatly

My 2000 dodge durango takes 20 min to fill up because the pump keeps shutting off. If i pause between pumping it will fill for a few seconds longer. in the last year that we have had the car it has only filled up right 3 times. We have only had the car a year by the way. It dosent matter what way you hold the nozzel or how far in it is. Every gas station same thing. A couple times in the last month when filling up it seemed like it was going fast until i noticed gas was pouring out. Sometimes if at the right station we can barely hold the trigger and it will fill without shutting off but its almost faster to just let it keep clicking off. I would also like to know about how much this would run at a shop and if i have no experiance with fixing cars other than fuel pums and such would this be something i could do myself. Sorry so long and Thanks in advance.My 02 Durango, shuts the pump off during fueling.  No matter what gas station, pump style, depth of nozzle, emptiness of my tank, angle of nozzle, the pump shuts off every 1-3 seconds.  It is very frustrating to refuel my car.

    The comment posted, was not all mine. My Durango is an 2002 not an 2000. I do drive it for short trips, but, most trips are at least 20 miles, and it does get driven several hundred miles. I have had the problem for a year plus now. It does not go away.

There is only one thing that causes this slow fueling problem, there is a soft plastic fuel tank vent hose that runs along side the fuel filler neck, they get kinks in them and don't allow the air to "vent" out of the tank during fueling, this is the problem u have, you can replace this part yourself, it is a dealer only item and will cost around $100.00, the filler neck and vent pipe are one assembly and installed as a unit, i don't recommend removing the old one and trying to fix it, once the plastic pipe gets bent or kinked the plastic remembers that shape and will kink again, then u are back to the same issue of slow fueling. A shop would charge around $200-$250 US to do this job.

Hi

The problem is due to damaged fuel fitting or a plugged fuel line. You'll need to get the fuel lines and fitting checked. Also get the EECC checked.

EECC is Evaporative Emission Control Canister which has saturated. Gasoline tanks shouldn't be filled past the automatic cutoff point of modern gas station pumps. Filling the tank as much as you possibly can leaves insufficient room for expansion of the gasoline liquid as it warms, and the overflow can fill the EECC, which should normally only be tasked with storing gasoline vapor from the tank, when the car is shut off, and there is no engine vacuum to purge it. This kind of problem due to repeated overfill can be exacerbated if you only use the car for short trips, as the engine may never run long enough to fully purge a saturated cannister. With a saturated canister, and a freshly filled tank on a warm day, it might be possible that excessive fuel system pressure has damaged a hose or fuel fitting, or even the fuel pump, simply due to gasoline in your tank heating up from 60° F ground tank storage temp, to 90° F air temp, which would need about an additional 2 liters of volume in your tank. Thus, the warning in most gasoline vehicle owner's manuals since 1970, about not overfilling the fuel tank.

If your EECC is saturated, you might be able to drain it by taking the car for a long drive (100+ miles) at highway speeds, but some kinds of canisters never fully recover if they are fully saturated, as the physical media within them deteriorates if left constantly soaking in liquid gasoline. Your only option then is to replace the EECC, and have the fuel system carefully checked for damage and leaks.


Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

What can kill the fire to fuel pump


The fuel pump is controlled by the ECM which receives a signal from the fuel pressure sensor . When the pressure is reached the sensor signals the ECM and the power to the pump is reduced / stopped until the pressure falls . Have a fuel pressure test done on the manifold to check fuel pump--pressure regulator and filter. Run fault codes to check for correct venting around the canister.

Hard to start after sit for 15 to 20 min. have changed fuel pump & all sencers that can think of acts like its loosing the fuel to me but not sure?


you need to check the fuel pressure, running it should be around 50psi. and after shutting down try to start, fuel pressure should jump to 50 psi within 1-2 seconds. if it has to build up you have fuel bleeding down somewhere. I have run into dirty injectors that are dribling after shut down causing a semi-flooding condition also there is a check valve in the fuel pump which is supposed to hold fuel in the system for the next start.

My dodge durango 2000 just stopped working at the stop light. I just put $40 in gas in it. Before it stopped it sputtered. It will still turn over but won't start. The dashboard light reads "no bus".


If you just put gas in it is possibly a fuel pump. It is common for pumps that are ready to go out will fail after a fill up - when the cool fuel hits the pump. It will still crank and all the electrical components will work - just no start.

Durango shuts off when im driving and than won't restart


This could be a number of things. First thing is do you have a check engine light on? If you do, I would have the codes read. That will tell you exactly what is wrong. And it is free-cheap to have them read.
If anything electrical or sensor wise is bad, the check engine light should be on.
Otherwise it would be a vacuum problem or a clogged fuel filter, possibly a failing fuel pump will also cause this problem.

Fuel pump


don't guess the fuel pump is $300.00, when it quits check the fuel pressure or listen for the whine of the pump in the tank, it is my opinion u most likely have a loss of spark problem, have autozone or kragen auto run a trouble code test, if nothing shows u may have a fuel problem. The test is free.

2000 Dodge Durango dies speradically


If you run you car constantly on low gas you heat up your fuel pump, gas actually act as a coolant for that pump, what you have done actually sounds like is over worked that pump. It's just not able to keep up the fuel pressure that is needed to fun the car and when you turn it off you let the fuel pump cool and then it will work This is only a suggestion but change the fuel pump and keep a little more gas in it. Hope this helps
