Turn it to the right and it just clicks? Turn it to the left and it won't turn, right? Well put some muscle into it and make it turn too the left, your dad undoubtedly turned it abot 5 clicks past stop and it's just tight. It will turn, Good luck.

There is gas leaking around the gas cap in my 2006 Toyota Highlander. It is not the original cap; replaced it due to an alert "Fuel Lid Open". I do not top off my tank. This has never happened before


Try to look inside the fill spout. Should have a a back flash or back flow stopper.Gas shouldn't be coming out then it would be a factory defect.

Having trouble getting my 2007 GMC Acadia to start after putting in fuel. It starts with no problem any other time, but whenever i put gas in it has trouble starting backup.


When a car will not run right after refueling, it is usually the vent valve, that vents the tank.
If not opening, then using a small amount of gas will create a very strong vacuum, and not allow the car to run.
Try cracking the gas cap a little, to let air in and reduce the vacuum. Automotive Evaporative Emissions Part One

2003 Chevrolet Silverado 4.3 V6 with MFI. Engine ran not start.


Well it could be numerous if things but you want suggestions...So here's mine..Your gas tank might be vapor locked...This is caused from over filling your gas tank with gas over the years..Its when the pressure in your gas tank becomes greater than your fuel pump. It wont start until the pressure in your gas tank becomes lower then you fuel pump...Sounds crazy...This got me once...I didn't understand it...A lot of people (including me) Go to the gas station and get that extra 50 cent after the gas nozzle clicks off...over time that extra gas will run down the vapor lines intended to burn fumes....Like when you fill a gas can to cut your grass...If you sake the gas can it builds pressure and bows up. But with time that pressure will go away...Well saying that...Your gas tank needs to vent to....So your car burns not only gas but fumes...If you keep over filling your car with the extra gas it cloggs up your vapor canister intended for fumes or vapors...The gas will will go into that canister and clogg up the charcoal that's inside it. (Breaks it down) then the vapors can't get to your carburetor where it supposed to burns it. So what happens is the pressure in the gas tank becomes greater than your fuel pump and then car won't start..Are you with me? Lol Its crazy..Putting a different gas cap can cause the same thing...Simple test...When you open your gas cap to get gas.. Do you heat air sucking in.. Yes you can hear it....A lot of times loosening the cap let's the pressure out and the car will start right up.....Thus might not be your problem but worth telling at the gas pumps to other people..... Just trying to help

Gas tank lid wont close


The flap in the fuel filler pipe will not affect the vehicle if it's open or closed or not there at all.There is air in the gas tank at all times displacing the gas as you use the fuel.

Where is my Toyota Highlander 2008 fuel filter located?


This model does not have an external fuel filter, there is a permanent fuel filter inside the gas tank that is not serviceable unless you want to remove the gas tank.
