Question about 1996 Chrysler Sebring
When I pump gas it immediately cuts off like it's full even though the tank is empty, and if I keep trying to pump the gas it will splash back on me. I have to put a little in at a time, and it takes me 30 minutes just put $20 worth in. How do I fix this?

you have a little valve on top of your fuel tank that feeds the purge canister. This is a fuel vapor control valve for emissions. It has probably plugged. You may need to drop the tank to fix this. If so replace the fuel filter then too.
You can try going to a local auto parts store to get a length of tubing...about 1/4 inch or so. This needs to be rated for fuel. You will feed this tube into your tank where you fill it with gas. You need to have enough room for the fuel nozzle to fit next to it. feed the tubing down into the tank...but dont lose it inside. Then fill the tank. the tubing will vent the tank in place of the bad valve.

SOURCE: When refueling my 300m the
I have a 2003 300m and I had the same problem when mine was brand new. I took it to the dealer and they told me that there was a recall on the filler tube going to the gas tank and fixed it for me. I don't know if that's your problem but it is worth a shot.

It sounds like the vent hose or tube from the fuel tank to the side of the inlet assembly is restricted. It can be twisted or bent. I've seen one case where it was misrouted and smashed against the frame rail. The vent tube allows air to escape while filling with fuel.

The vent from the tank,to the fuel fill(small hose)is stopped up.
