There is a filter on the tank vent that is plugged. It is not letting the air escape from the tank during fillup causing positive pressure which will will shut off the gas pump. I don't know where it is on your model but some are under the back behind the fuel tank. It is usually a 6" square plastic box with a hose on it and louvers on the sides.

When you put the nozle in try not to get it in to far you'll be better off if you just get the tip of the nozle in by 1/4 if you do this the fuel won't cutt off.

PO441 code comes on- Evap purge control valve. also, when filling the gas tank, the nozzle on the gas pump keeps shutting off before tank is full.


Try not putting fuel nozzle in so far. Fuel flow cuts off on back pressure of the air being displaced by the fuel when filling. Can be a problem with narrow neck tanks and some fuel fillers are more sensitive than others.

Gas tank will not fill up on 2001 ford expedition


Gas as in gasoline or gas as in LPG gas? If its petrol, the fuel sender may be out of adjustment. (Usually means a new sender) If its LPG, the fuel stations are set to automatically shut off at 80% full. The gas tank will never actually be full to the brim but the gauge should be showing full if the gas nozzle keeps shutting off. Have a look on the LPG tank itself, they have a little gauge on them which shows how full it is. I have 2 tanks on my car , when "full" or when the pump shuts down, the tank gauges show just under full but the gauge on the cars dash shows full (2005 BA Ford)

With my 2005 Chrysler Town and Country van, I have trouble fueling the vehicle. The nozzle keeps shutting off as if the gas tank is full. What do I need to do?


Usually a sign of a blockage in the vent pipe inside the filler tube, or the vent for the gas tank. Air pressure inside the tank has to be equalized as the fuel is added.

Car will not accept gas


try pulling back a little on the nozzle, the tank has an anti rolloverball in the pipe and this sometimes cause it to shut off when the nozzle is stuck all the way into the filler pipe

Filling gas tank


There is a vent pipe that runs along the fill pipe, they get kinked and cause this concern (tank can't vent air when filling), the only fix is to replace the fill pipe assembly.
