When the gas gets to the top it rushes up while there is still air in the tank. once the fuel starts going down, it takes up the air space. its just a slow procedure for the air space to get taken up, thats all

    its normal, all tanks do it
    imagine if you took a square, plastic container with 1 hole in it, into the bathtub, and submerged it in under the water until all the air bubbles stopped coming out, then you leaned it to the side, more air bubbles would come out. its just filling in the leftover air space

Pumping gas


Could be a venting problem with your gas tank, or a blockage in the filler tube going to the tank.

My 93 chrysler town and country ran out of gas i added 3 gallons of gas still wont start turns over but wont start?


add another two or three. your fuel pump sits in a module which has a valve on it to let gas in, but as the car gets older that valve needs more weight to open and let gas in. this module is about 12" high, so if you fill the tank you will definitely fill the module as well. but adding at least two more gallons should get the car started

I ran out of gas and put gas in out of a gas jug the car started but is running rough and is worse when i push on the gas petal


you need 4 or 5 gallons gas to be on safe side.could be too late damage fuel pump.never run vechicle low on fuel.fuel pump needs gasoline to keep it cool and lubricated.add more gas see if engine run better.if not i would change fuel filter all sediment was disturb when you add gas to empty tank when you poured gas in fuel tank sediment break up stop up fuel filter.change fuel filter see if car run better if not more like fuel pump over heat and damaged pump motor bearing.

Someone sugared my gas tank. i have a chrysler 300 m. i flushed the gas tank and now its sitting in my yard. I never turned the key over at all. I noticed it right away. How long do i have to wait for it...


First off it is a myth that sugar will destroy an engine. Sugar will not dissolve in gasoline. Depending on how much sugar was added it could clog the fuel pump sock filter. You have drained the tank, so add 5 gallons of fuel to the tank and start the engine. It will do no harm whatsoever. You may have to change the fuel filter a few times if the sugar clogs it but otherwise no harm will be done.

Can't pump gas in my tank went to 3 drifferernt gas stations due to senors that wasn't it.. hose down no blocking found... some one said air can't exit try to get that out but no money to pay...


Sometimes that little metal flap that was covering the hole where you put the gas can break and fall in. causes a blockage. Another thing, i used to have a Buick Regal that i had to hold the gas nozzle hard to one side and pump really slowly to get gas in. If all else fails, get a 5 gallon plastic gas can, fill that up, then poor it down your car gas tank. Alot of work, but its cheap.

2007 Subaru WRX Fuel gauge does not work porperly. When the tank is topped off, the fuel gauge reads full, but after much driving the gauge only drops to 3/4 a tank and slowly to half of a tank on the...


hi it can really only be two things, first is the fuel sender on the pump inside the tank it could be stuffed or sticking causing a false reading, second it can also be a faulty fuel gauge on the dash.

200 saturn sl. tank has 8 gallons fresh fuel. low fuel light wont go out. fuel gauge bounces up to 3/4 tank and then slowly drops down to empty


See if your leaking any gas by placing a box underneath the car, second your fuel float may be going inside the tank and or it could be a fuel pump or sending unit issue.
Call a junk yard or salvage place if you find you need parts..
