Question about 2007 Dodge Nitro SXT
My 2007 dodge nitro seems to be holding a lot of pressure in the fuel tank. When I try to fill it up, the shut off on the fuel pump clicks off the fuel after a few seconds and then there is spit back of fuel. The engine light is on with the "GAS CAP" light. What could cause this?
Well you don't do it properly. Is the nozzle in ALL THE WAY? What do you do when you're with a woman you go all the way or "just the tip"? The gas cap light is on because you're filling gas aren't you? Is it Diesel or Petrol? Just Curious it doesn't matter to how you fill it up! There's usually a flap after the cap to stop fuel from spilling out when driving, if your nozzle don't get pass this flap you'll spill out. ALL THE WAY. No fuel tank on a LATE model car would be designed to have the pressure building up.

SOURCE: dodge nitro fuel cap
You stated "key in and key out", I'm assuming that your car has a locking gas cap. If that's the case, turn the key to the right (clockwise), once the key stops, hold it in the far right position with your right hand, then grab the gas cap with your left hand and turn it clockwise. That should do it. Hope this helps. If I was able to FixYa, please rate my answer. Thanks.
