Welcome to the GM world. Try filling the tank first by not putting the nozzle in to far and start slow first then you can gradually squeeze the trigger more. It's like an art and when you can find the right spot the nozzle needs to be to fill, your good to go. I have a Jimmy and Montana, they both get filled differently except that i need to start slow first then i can squeeze the trigger all that way after 5 seconds. Good luck and enjoy your new truck.

    It may not be your truck, try another pump, The flow rate from the gas nozzle may be set higher then the flow rate to your filler neck to the gas tank. There is a vent tube but that goes to the EVAP canister and if you don't have any check engine light then that check valve is working. Good luck and hope this helps, just wanted to let you know your truck is doing fine and most likely it's the gas station. If there is someone else pumping gas and they stop and fuel pressure rises at the pump then your nozzle my click off again.

    If there is a Auto Zone around your area, have the truck scanned for DTC codes. Auto Zone scan free of charge and that may indicate why your having issues with filling the gas tank. Thank you for letting me know your service engine light is on, there is a vent tube from your gas tank that connects to the EVAP canister. The tube is connected to a valve which allows some of the gas fumes to be stored in the EVAP system, if the valve is stuck in the close position your check engine light will come one and may be the reason you can not fill the gas tank like you used to. Keep me posted, be glad to help and good thing you have a pick up truck. everything is much easier to work on if we have to get to the EVAP system. Keep me posted, be glad to help

When pumping fuel nozzle continuously shuts off on my 2004 toyota celica


sometimes the sensor in the gas pump can be tripped if the nozzle is put too far into the tank, try holding it out a bit farther so the end of the nozzle is just into the tank's opening

Why does the gas pump keep clicking off while putting gas in my car


some pumps have more pressure than others, too much flow will restrict the flow shutting off the pump nozzle works on flow as car gets full it makes pressure to the nozzle and shuts it off

When putting gas in my car (2004 pontiac grand prix, 3.8) the gas pump keeps shutting off like my car is full when its not. Any suggestion to what that means?


This is not a bad thing. You have a very tight emissions system. You know your car at this point better than anyone else. You can try this, don't put the gas nozzle very tight into the gas filler. Put the nozzle into your tank and just pull it out a fraction of an inch. This will give the fuel tank the ability to BREATH while your filling the tank .This should solve your problem. GOOD LUCK.

When filling gas tank on 2004 toyota corolla it keeps shutting off as if the gas tank is full, can only put in a little at a time.


When taking gas cap off give it a few seconds for the pressure to escape from the tank. Also you may not be putting the nozzle in far enough for the fume preventor(the rubber thing on the nozzle)to press down. That will make it stop pumping gas. Sometimes you have to press the rubber down when it is cold out.

I go to put gas in my 04 denali and it excepts abouut a gallon then sshuts off like there is something blocking the tank


All of todays cars and trucks sold in the USA are equipped with Vented Gas Filler Systems...try starting to fuel slower then increase flow after a few moments...you might also try not putting the gas nozzle fully in...but still in far enough not to spill...the pressure varies from pump to pump...:)

Can't put gas in the tank.It keeps tripping the gas pump off. This started about a year ago but just recently has gotten to the point that I can only get 3 or 4 tenths of gas in before it shuts the pump...


Run the nozzle at the slowest you possibly can, and it should take the gas. Some vehicles have a small vent tube running up the inside of the filler neck. You might check that.

Gas comes out of the nozzle as foam, and any obstruction causes it to back up.

Try different angles for the nozzle as well.

2003 GMC Jimmy 4x4 Cannot put gas in the the tank


Same problem yesterday on my Dad's Jimmy. Left my brother in law stranded cause they couldn't put gas in it. There is a pressure purge valve next to the tank that is supposed to release the pressure on the tank when the engine is shut down. These often fail in Jimmy's and Blazer's and because the tank is still pressurized, the antisiphon valve doesn't open up and this keeps you from putting gas in the tank. You need to replace the part.

Ford 2005 Escape


you have a vapor vent tube problem. When fuel goes in, the iar must come out. The filler pipe has a vent pipe inside it. Try putting the nozzle in upside down & see what happens. Try putting the nozzle all the way in & see what happens? Try putting the nozzle in just a little way & see what happens.
Otherwise, you may need a new filler pipe.
