SOURCE: Trouble with the 99 Cherokee Sport

I have had a similar problem with mine, also 99 Sport. Cycling the window lock switch seems to cure it each time it does this, when it won't work hit the window lock switch then try it then hit it again. Takes a couple tries sometimes. Some kind of stupid glitch somewhere like the one that locks the stupid doors when the key is on.

SOURCE: how to replace a jeep tj fuel tank?

I would be really careful with doing this repair as this is very dangerous. You need to relieve the fuel pressure by pulling the fuel pump fuse and starting the truck. Drain the tank with a siphon pump. Remove any exhaust or other parts that are in the way, loosen the straps and support the tank with a floor jack and a block of wood. There are several hoses, and a few wire connectors to disconnect and you may want to replace those hoses while you're down there. Once you put the new tank in, reconnect the electrical and hoses, raise the tank and strap it back up. Put anything else back together you took off the truck.
Personally, I would take this in to get fixed as this is dangerous work (I did mention that). I you do this anyway, use your head and buy a proper container to hold the gas in , as well as jackstands and a class "B" fire extinguisher. Disconnect the battery and don't smoke or use a drop light under the car, and I will not accept responsibility for this.

SOURCE: replacing spark plugs on 2007 jeep compass

The black engine cover just pops into place. Gently use both hands and place them under the front edge of the cover. Lift up and reach to the right rear corner of the cover and pop it up off the grommet stem. Do the same to the left rear. The plugs are on the REAR of the engine-the injectors on the front. Use the torx driver to remove the plug caps screw and gently twist a little and pull upwards. The plugs is a ways down. Make sue you use a good spark plug socket (the one with the rubber insert) that will grip the plug and not drop it. At a minimum use platinum tipped plugs. I touched the new ones up with some anti-seize lube on the threads and put a dab of die-electic grease in the plug wire tubes.

99 legacy wagon won't fuel tank

most commonly the evap systems vent solenoid is plugged or inoperable causing pressure to build in the fuel tank as you fill up. this high pressure triggers the gas pump nozzle to shut off as it would if the tank had been filled. replace canister vent

Hyundai XG350 will not take gas

Sally, the problem is the charcoal vent system. A new one will cost about $150.00 but......... the total fix will require the cleaning of the vent valve on the gas tank. You will find small pieces of the charcoal (pellet size) in the valve. You must look close to see them. Think pencil lead size. Remove them and exercise the valve some. The valve is a push in and out type. I don't understand the reason the charcoal pellets make their way to the vent valve at the tank but they do because I found them in mine. They must travel out of the canister and up and over a dry loop in the vent line to get to the vent valve at the gas tank. This would take some vacuum to cause the pellets to travel. It also requires the poor construction of the factory instaledl canister vent outlet because there is a filter at the canister that is supposed to contain the pellets. This will verify you have gotten all the charcoal pellets out. The charcoal canister (located up under the fender is easy to replace). You can make a cheep fix by installing some scaring pad material in the vent connection line at the canister but that doesn't address the charcoal being plugged. This will keep the charcoal pellets in the canister.
You will have to drop the gas tank partially to remove and clean the vent valve. Keep in mind you are working on a gas system that is very dangerous. i.e. it doesn't like spark's. Only begin this job with a tank that is all but empty.
You can find diagrams of the vent system on the internet. So you can identify the parts I have referred to here.
I have done this work. It is not easy. It is an under the car and also through the car trunk operation. You will have to remove the gas pump via the trunk from the gas tank. Remember about the spark issue when you do this part of the job.
This problem is very common with Hyundai's and several other cars. It is because the manufacture has reduced the gas fill piping to roughly a 3/4" pipe and installed a government requied venting system that you have this problem. You will see that at the tank the opening is as fill lines used to be about 2" and at the gas nozzle area also about 2'" but the rest of the line is no larger in diameter than the gas pump nozzle. That is not to place the blame all on the car manufacture. You see it is always the government that is behind our frustrations in life. The EPA has told the car companies that the gas vapors we used to smell when the car was being fueled are no longer aloud. So the need for the charcoal vent system to capture the vapors of the gas as fueling is being done. Some car people have said that if you never overfill your tank these fueling problems never happen. i.e. the charcoal in the canister never gets wet with liquid gas only vapors. Note the warning stickers and owners manual cautions to stop the filling process when the gas nozzle clicks off the first time. Sally you will know if you have not followed this advise and fueled your car clicking the nozzle several times after the first nozzle stop. That is the way we used to fuel the cars in the good old days. However, I do almost all of the gassing of my car and I had the problem. So I say the car manufacture is responsible for the issue with poor designs in the system.
Lastly I can't stress enough the importance of not doing this job as a back yard mechanic operation because of the volatility of the gas. It can and will blow up if not handled correctly.
Good luck!!!!

Where is the fuel pump located

Almost all fuel pumps are in the gas tank. And almost all tanks need to be removed to get to it. Not easy if working in driveway ,but you'll never forget the experience.
