On most modern gas pumps there is a sensor in the tip of the nozzle. When it feels to much pressure or liquid it shuts the pump off. When you are filling your tank you need to leave a little room for air to come out. Try to not put the nozzle in as far and see if that will work. You will only need to leave a little bit of room. Hope it helps!

You would have to remove the entire gas tank. if that little flap fell in, it probably fell the whole way into the tank. you could just try setting the pump on the slower setting, or just don't push the nozzle the whole way into the fill pipe.

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.

You need to make sure you put in AT LEAST 2 gallons of gas, more if the car is not level. It might take a few cycles of the key to get the fuel line primed again. A full cycle is Off-On-Start. When you turn the key to on, listen for the fuel pump. It should run for a few seconds and then shut off, turn the key to start for a few seconds and then back to off... This will have to be repeated several times. You should be able to hear the fuel pump from the drivers seat. I will be a faint hum or hiss coming from the back seats.

2000 volvo s80 ran out of gas put gas in but it wont start


Turn the key to full power (but do not crank the engine). You may hear a high pitched whine from behind you - that's the fuel pump running. Leave the key on for about five seconds, then turn it off for a minute. Turn the key on again for another five seconds, and off for a minute. Then turn the key on for five seconds, and then crank the engine.

If your car ran out of gas, you need to run the fuel pump this way to get fuel up to the engine again - all the lines from the tank to the engine are empty, so the pump needs to run to fill them.

If this doesn't work, it's possible that the fuel pump is vapor-locked and will have to be replaced. Some cars are more susceptible than others to this type of failure.

When i go to put gas in my car it takes the gas and then clicks off the pump like its full so i have to wait like 30 seconds and put more in and keep doing these steps till its full...why does my tank not...


hi from uk are you putting the fuel pump gun/nozzle fully into tank filler? as there is a flap valve inside the tank filler neck and unless nozzle pushes this flap open it will restrict flow of fuel into tank one other cause of problem slow filling? is the ventilation pipe from the tank which is positiond along side of fill pipe ? may be kinked or blocked at outlet look under car where filler is and check? as fuel enters tank it displaces air from tank via this vent pipe? hope this helps you solve problem
