Gas won't pump into tank on 99 Olds Alero

When I go to put gas into my 99 olds alero, the pump will kick off after a few cents of gas and I can see the gas backing out the tank opening as I am trying to pump in gas. It takes me over 20 minutes to pump in $10 of gas. The tank is not full and it does this every time I try to get gas.

Have a 2004 mustang. I can only only put a few cents at a time when trying to put gas before it spits back out


Sounds like vent tube is not operating probably. When gas goes in air in tank needs to go out. When air can't escape its keeping gas pushing up and kicking pump off.

1999 olds alero where is my fuel filter


The fuel filter is located under the car right in front of the fuel tank.You need to have up on jackstands to get to the filter.
Mine is located BEHIND the gas tank, between the tank and the rear (axel) support ('99 Olds Alero 3.4l v6 2 door coupe)

99 olds alero; fuel pump and inst. panel isn't getting power


fuel shutoff switch is actually a fuel pump relay in the relay box under the hood, but it is not unusual for a fuel pump to work on and off before it finally dies. but it is a good idea to check the relay first.

try swapping it with the horn relay (if the horn works). pay attention to the direction the relay is in. on GM's, it's possible to put them in backward or even miss the connectors completely.

you also want to check for proper power and ground in the relay socket.

2001 Oldsmobile Alero will not start. The car turns over but just will not start. Plugs are 4 mths old, tank is full of gas battery and alternator are working. Anybody out there know of anything we could...


you can also try pulling the fuel pump relay under the hood and put it back in. works on my 2000 alero. and yes if the security light is on, you need to turn the key on and wait about 10 min. until it stops flashing, then turn off, then start car.
