Suburban z71 slow fueling problem

2005 Suburban Z71 takes fuel very slow. Nozzle has to be hand-held and fuel flow into tank at about 3-seconds per 1/10 gal is most that can be used without tripping nozzle off. Someone suggested "bad charcoal canister" - is that the same as a vapor canister? Is that likely? How to find/check/fix?

Sounds as if your vapor recovery system is plugged, although you should have a trouble code if you have this problem. Go to an Autozone and have them pull your codes for you.

SOURCE: I am having problems fueling my car. Gas nozzle

This is a typical problem on the G35.

I believe there is a Technical Service Bulletin the outlines the problem. There is a schrader valve that needs to be replaced. Should be under warranty if you haven't exceeded the 70k mile powertrain warranty.

2000 z71 silverado 5.3 l. when pumping gas, it fills up the tube to the tank instead of flowing straight to the tank. how do i fix this?

There will be a small hose from the top of the tank that re-enters the filler tube near where you put in the nozzle. It allows the air to come out while the fuel is flowing in. Check that it is not kinked /blocked and the air can flow out freely

2003 chevy suburban z71 shows car with padlock just changed fuel pump wont start

If you disconnected the battery to change the fuel pump and did not disable the anti-theft feature first, you now know why it wont start. Check the owners manual if you have it, or contact a GM dealer to get the system reset.
