Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Alero

1999 Olds Alero, unleaded gas. Am having problem with gas tank

1999 Olds Alero, runs on unleaded gas. Am having problems with pumping gas into tank. I removed two lines from the gas spout to the tank - both were clear no obstructions found there. I still can't get more than a few cents of gas at a time to pump into tank. Does the tank have something else I need to check?

Have your evaporative purge valve solenoid check. because its controls the gas vapors going to canister purge or vent valve.take it to dealers have the evap system scan because its not venting or controling gas vapor.it suppose vent gas vapor to intake to be burn.if it dont work it causes excess gas vapor pressure built up in tank. make it hard to pump gas into it.

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)
