There is a breather tube to the tank either running up the filler tube or from the fuel sender/pump unit make sure this is connected , has no holes etc, check the fuel filter and replace if in doubt . you hav'nt said what your vehicle is most modern vehicles are self bleeding if air in system unless there is a leak/blockage hope this helps

Bought a 1994 Mazda B-3000 truck someone put a Ford ignition switch in it ran when I got it but I took off the gas tank to fix a busted line and now I believe the anti theft won't read the key is there a...

that is illogical. the issue has to be with the gas tank repair.
u need to get the air out of the gas line, or u missed replacing some wiring - but since the motor runs i'm going with air.

Buy a new tank cap. Fill ur tank slower. Inspect the fill hose for akink or damage. And looknst the overflow vent line. Fuel caps keep air out they do need replacing once and a while. Ur take vents at the cap sounds like ur cap is not venting or ur return over flow line has issues try a new cap first. Then go deeper if issue still there chk the top of the tank where the gauge sending unit is. Etc etc.

How do i fix an air lock in gas tank of a ford freestar 2003 se

Not sure I understand your question.
Everytime the gas cap is removed pressure inside the tank is equalized with outside air.
If you run the tank empty you can damage the pump, which would cause a lack of fuel in the line to the injectors.

Started 6 months ago - ran out of gas at 1/4 tank, figured gage was bad, added gas no problem. Now runs out of fuel at any level afterr it warms up. Changed out fuel pump on frame rail, fuel filter, coil,...

do a check on the fuel pump in the gas tank, else replace a section of fuel line near the throttle body with a clear plastic line, if yu see any air bubble that is your problem, then its a problem of where the air is getting in, a fuel line can leak air in with no fuel leaking out, connect a fuel guage to the system and monitor it at different speeds, could be the pressure valve is faulty, just giving you a few things else to check

Some one played a bad joke on me they put antifrezee in my gas tank and what to do to get out

Take to a garage and you will soon find out that "bad joke" is the wrong name for this. All gas must be removed and gas tank dropped and cleaned. you can only hope that that will fix it. Fuel pump, line and injectors may also need attention.

1976 gmc 350 - no fuel getting to carb, I disconected the fuel line from the carb & cranked - nothing came out but I could heaar the pump working and feel some air being blown out - yes there is fuel...

yes it is probably the pump or a problem in one of the fuel lines but i would bet more on the fuel pump or suction line into the tank. If you can take the line off going to the tank put it in a jug of gas and see if the pump will pump it to the carb or the engine will run.

Having trouble pumping gas into 2005 hyundai elantra

You have a blocked or restricted evaporative cannister or vent valve or both. When you fill the tank with gas, the air is expelled through a line attatched to the emissions cannister and then through another line to the vent valve. If these are restricted or damaged, this could cause your symptoms. Usually you can still fill the tank very slowly though. Usually, the canister ges saturated from gas from overfilling (topping off).
The fix is to replace the EVAP canister.

Gas Tank Blockage

i had the exact same problem, turns out, there is a 2 lines going from the gas tank to where you put your gas in, one is for the gas to go in and one is for air to get out. on mine, there was a sliver seal from a bottle of heat that i had poured in during the winter. the seal was the exact size of the return air line and blocked it from air coming out. this forced the air to come out the gas part and splashed around a lot causing the pump to shut off, i bet there is a blockage in the line that goes from your nozzle to your tank. it is easy to take off, but it is very dirty

I've got bad gas and need to know the easiest way to drain the tank or otherwise fix the problem.

The tank will have to be removed from the vehicle and completely dried out.Gas tanks no longer have drain plugs as they did 50 years ago.Remove the fuel pump from the top of the tank,and thoroughly clean the tank with brake cleaner and compressed air and let air dry for awhile.The fuel pump and filter will need to be replaced with new,and after all the reinstallation,the fuel line must be disconnected at the engine,and the line flushed with new,clean gasoline as well as the return fuel line.Spark plugs will have to be replaced also.
