Question about 1999 Mazda MX-5 Miata
I had the same problem with mine about a month and a half ago with my 2004 sentra 1.8L manual. I was trying to figure it out for about a year before that and finally found out it's only a 50 dollar part (100 dollars from the dealer) that takes under ten minutes to change.
That is the link from the place I ordered it from and it's working now. The location is behind the driver side rear tire, there is a little black box / cover that should pop off. It's held up by two little plastic clips. If you click "more info" the link you will see a picture of the part and once that black cover is off it's right there. All you do is pull off the hose connected to it and pop it out of the socket it's in. Kind of hard to explain without showing you so hopefully this helped.
You can always just check that black cover and look under there before ordering anything just to make sure. The piece acts as a switch to let pressure out of your fuel tank. I looked in mine and the metal spring was rusted. You can try cleaning it out with WD40 and whatever else you have available but it won't last too long. I did mine when there was snow out and the salt and snow and water gets in there pretty easily.
Well, good luck.

With your's, it could be a plugged vent tube, but i can telll you that my 05 Mustang does the same thing, as do they all. The trick is to turn the gas pump filler completely upside down. Works like a charm, but everybody thinks you're some kind of a crack head.
