Hi I'm Peter, Not sure what your problem is from just posting fuel filler neck however I am assuming you have a strong gas smell. The rubber hose that connects the filler pipe on the tank to the fuel spout may be cracked and leaking. Another common problem is the tank vent tube that runs from the tank up along side the filler tube may be rubbing on the metal part of the tube and has a hole in it. This will give you the strong fume smell and possible fuel leak as will the rubber filler tube when the tank is full. These vehicles are known for this problem and also the metal filler pipe rusting causing a pin ole. Look to see if you can see rust anywhere . Even if you don't see rust on the outside does not mean there is not rust on the inside. I have seen where a lot of people have been have the rust issue also to the point they carry the part at auto parts stores . Hope this is what you needed.

Dodge grand caravan 2005 filler neck replacement


1)Block front wheels.
2)Jack up the left rear tire off of the ground.
3)Put blocks up under the frame.
4)Take off the left rear tire.
5)Take out the plastic liner in the fender well that covers the fuel filler neck.
6)Loosen up the hose clamps on the rubber fuel filler hoses. (at the neck side); once the clamps are off plan on buying new ones. This next part of the job is VERY IMPORTANT! use a flat screwdriver and pry 360 degrees all around the rubber filler neck hoses. (they get kinda glued on from being on there so long). Next Get some PB Blaster lube or WD-40 (it has to have the small red squirt hose) and spray the lube up in between the hoses while you pry around. the more you do this the easyer it will be to pull the metal filler neck pipe out.
7)Now its time to take out the 4 bolts that hold the pipe on.
Use a 10mm socket and extension to take out 4 bolts up top behind the fuel filler door.
8)Pull the filler neck out and put everything back together the way it came apart and your done!

There could be a tiny rust hole in the fuel filler neck ,or the cap may not be sealing the filler neck properly. Check for rust on the filler neck, and on the sealing surface of the filler neck opening.

Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.

You have a verry common condition; we see this quite often.

The codes you mention are usually caused by one (or a combination) of the three things that follows.

1. You do not have the 'factory' fuel tank cap fitted to the car; 'Aftermarket' fuel caps do not seal properly, and the leak of thefuel fumes under the cap will light the light.

2. The o-ring that seals the cap to the fuel filler neck is worn, or otherwise compromised, which will also allow the fumes to escape and light the light.

3. There could be rust on the filler neck tube, which would not allow a tight seal between the cap
s o-ring seal and the filler neck.

I would recommend replacing the fuel cap with a factory replacement, and inspect the filler neck sealing surface for rust buildup. If you see rust, a replacement filler neck will be in order.

Thanks for choosing FixYa fo assistance today.

Problem filling gas tank


Sounds like you need a new filler neck. There is a vent, and it is part of the filler neck. Or there could be a bad valve at the bottom of the neck.

The vent tube inside the filler neck must be restricted, remove the filler neck asssembly from the fuel tank and check the vent tube, it is most likely kinked.
