The vent solenoid "closes" the fuel system while driving to allow fuel vapors to be burned in the engine. If your vent solenoid is not operating, this is a condition you will have. Get the vent solenoid tested.

SOURCE: cant fill my tank,pump keeps

Hello topromeo.

In modern vehicles there is a system in place to capture and burn the vapors when filling the fuel tank.
This consists of a carbon canister, hoses and valves.
The vapors when filling the tank are routed through the carbon canister and stored there until the car is driven.

Under certain conditions these valves need to close to test the system integrity.
In your case there is a valve that has stuck closed and not allowing vapors to vent through.

This is called a canister vent valve and is located under the car on the carbon canister.
It should be available at your local Buick dealer.

If you require further advise on this subject please ask me here.

Thank you for using FixYa.

When filling gas tank the gas pump kicks off unless I trickle in the gas. Takes about 10 minutes to fill 18 gallons of gas. What is the fix?


Fuel tank vent hose damaged, kinked, or bent.

Fuel tank vent valve is defective, plugged with dirt, or damaged.

If the car is driven normally and has never been in an accident, it's probably the valve.

STARTS AND SHUTS DOWN AFTER 2 SECONDS 95 BUICK CENTURY V6


Not enough fuel pressure.
Hopefully, it might be a clogged fuel filter, start there... replace it. ($9 AutoZone).
Could also be fuel pump or the fuel pressure valve is stuck open, allowing fuel to drain back to the gas tank (no fuel in line).
