Why would the metal shield on my 2013 jeep Cherokee gas filler lock up? I can not put the gas nossle into the hole to put gas in the car?


It sounds like something is jamming the spring mechanism. If you cannot get it open, take it to a mechanic for assistance.

How do i open petrol cap on bmw 525 diesl


The petrol flap doesn't have a lever to open it like other cars but can be opened when the car is unlocked by pushing on one side of the flap to open, if this will not open then the fuel flap locking actuator is faulty and has not unlocked the fuel flap, if this has occurred open the boot and on the left hand side of the boot you will see a round button, if you cannot see this and you only see a hole then chances are the side cover has been off at some stage and the button hasn't been reinstated, if it is there, pull on it and it will pull the fuel flap locking actuator back allowing you to open the fuel flap.

The car is very heavy on gasoline


Raise the hood of your car and find the air cleaner.
It should be on top of your engine. It is usually large and maybe round, and usually black.
It is usually held in place with a wing nut.
Remove the top of the air cleaner, and look down inside this.
There should be a hole about 2-3 inches across.
This is the top of the carburetor, if your car has one.
There is a flap you should see inside the top of the carburetor throat. That is the choke flap.
That should be open when the engine is hot, and nearly closed when the engine is cold.
If that flap is sticking, it will stick nearly closed, increasing your fuel consumption.
You may be able to check if it is stuck by moving it with your finger.
You can buy a spray can of carburetor cleaner at the car parts store, and spray that flap, and free it up to work better.
Follow the instructions on the can.

Is the metal flap on Maf sensor on 92 Lexus es300 supposed to move with gas pedal if car is not running? Will a bad maf cause no apart or a no start condition?


No. The metal flap in the mass aiflow sensor is not connected to the throttle control. The air moving through the mass airflow sensor moves the flap. The flap works a variable resistor inside the mass airflow sensor. The more (and faster) the air is that moves through the sensor, the farther the flap will move...that is how it measures how much air is entering the engine....that is what a mass airflow sensor does.

A bad mass airflow sensor can cause all kinds of fuel control problems that can range anywhere from a hesitation on acceleration to a complete engine no-start condition.

How do i install mud flaps 12wx22h inches on my 2011 ram 1500 thanks in advance


That depends on the design of the mud flaps. Typically they have holes in the top for sheet metal screws. Look for any existing sheet metal screws in the fender wheel behind the wheel that match with the holes in the flaps - you can just remove those, put the mud flap up and put the screw back in if it is long enough (if the mud flap doesn't have a metal strip across the mounting edge, you'll need a large washer under the screw head to distribute stress across the material or it will crack).
If you don't have matching holes, you'll have to drill them. If you are going into steel, use a bit sized for the shank of the sheet metal screw, or just drill the screw in directly. After you get the screw in, take it out and fill the hole with rust-protecting sealant, then put the screw back in. If your mounting hole is on fiberglass or plastic, use a nut and bolt with fender washers under both the screw head and the nut. I recommend either stainless steel or cadmium plated hardware for corrosion protection; this is a harsh environment.
If you don't have a straight surface for mounting the mud flap, you may have to bend a heavy galvanized steel strap with holes in it (perhaps a pipe hanger) to make a mounting bracket. Attach one end to the vehicle as described in the previous paragraph, and attach the mud flap to it.
I would expect a new mud flap set would include the necessary hardware to adapt it to different vehicles. If you've already purchased a new set without any of this material, you can look at some of the other sets on the market for ideas on mounting brackets. The exact method you use is not critical, so long as it holds the flap without breaking anything (consider the stresses from flapping back and forth and try to envision where the greatest stresses and material fatigue would be), and is reasonably protected from corrosion.

Theres no tension behind the gas petal when i press it


The pedal is connected to a wire cable which runs to a valve or flap of some type at the intake end of the fuel injector under the hood. Either the cable has broken, or the spring which keeps the fuel injector opening closed down to idle position has broken or the cable has come off at one end or the other. Raise the hood and have a companion move the pedal up and down while you find the accelerator cable housing, most likely will be black. If the stiff wire cable inside the housing is moving with your friend's movement of the pedal then you should look to the end of the cable. You will see a small grooved wheel and the cable lies in that groove, and its movement turns the wheel which moves the flap inside. If the cable is not moving then your accelerator cable has broken or come loose at the pedal end.

I CAN'T GET MY GAS FLAP TO OPEN TO GET GAS.ANY SOLUTIONS?


I had the same problem with my 1999 Passat, whose power lock switch was also not working. It seems that when the mechanic fixed the power lock switch this also resolved the issue with the fuel flap.

Until I had this done, I had to do what goeffreyh above said, pull the upholstery in the trunk aside and pull back on the plastic tab to open the fuel door manually.
