I would bring it back to the people who put the pump in and demand it be fixed for free. Either there is a clog in the anti-syphon screen or the anti-lead device is causing a blockage in the flow of the fuel.

SOURCE: slow filling gas tank

Sounds like someone put something in the fill tube. It is easy to pull off then run high air pressure through it

93 crown vic , when i had the the fuel pump replaced i had to dispose of gas like turpentine and extreme rust on the pump itsself even tho the tank is plastic ....am i missing something simple ?


the rust and other liquid in the tank comes from petrol stations in ground fuel tanks which build up condensation and they rust from the inside out and then when you fill up it deposits it in your cars tank to build up to the point where it clogs up the fuel pump and filters thats why fuel filters are important and why they are fitted because they can't guarantee clean fuel supples

I have a 2002 kia spectra throwing a P0442 code. Also when trying to pump gas into tank I must hold lever to pump extremely slow or the gas pump clicks off. Takes forever! Any ideas?


According to my book. the 0442 code means you have a small leak in your Evaporative Emission Control system. As to the fuel fill issue. Some cars have an anti-siphon screen further up the fill spout than others. Also, for some reason some stations feel they have to have their pumps double as fire hoses. Repair or diagnosis of the Evaporative Emission Control system is one of those things that shouldn't be attempted by the do-it-yourself mechanic.

1999 MERCURY VILLAGER BOGS WHEN GOING UP HILL WHEN ONLY 1/8TH TANK OF GAS FILLE IT UP AND THEN STILL BOGGED FOR ABOUT A MILE THEN QUIT BOGGING WHAT CAUSED THIS


when a tank is empty there is no fuel for the pump and the system runs low on fuel pressure Going up hill the fuel runs away from the pick up line and the pump sucks air
After filling it takes a while to empty the air out of the system to allow full pressure again. It is an extremely costly practice to run so low on fuel as it may lead to a pump replacement

I cant get the gas tank full


Try slowing down how fast you pump the fuel in, the curve of the tank filler pipe and the stopper valve at the end of the pipe(in the tank)will act as a restriction causing a backup when filling too fast. Or the stopper valve is sticking in the tank. To fix that ,you would have to replace the tank.

Gas wont go in tank.it takes it slow ?the gas pump shuts off like the tank is slow.


the fuel return hose is kinked or plugged up. every filler neck has a secondary vent tube attached to the tank for fast fill ups. If it is slow in filling have that vent tube inspected

2001 Durango acts like the gas tank is full during filling cutting off the pump. The only way to fill tank is to pump gas really slow


Chrysler and Dodge have a fuel vapor filter that allows air out of the gas tank but filters the harmful fumes. Usually the problem happens from topping off your gas after the gas pump stops due to the automatic shut off and then putting more gas in the tank (to make the bill an even $50. or to the next $5 increment, or pumping more in just because it fits). Anyway the filter gets saturated with gas, is not able to breath, and causes a vacuum in the tank. Because of this, the anti-siphon ball is not able to float around and sits at the opening of the fuel fill tube and won't allow any more gas to be put in (acts like the car is full). If you pump super duper slow like put a nickel to hold the gas pump handle, it will trickle in without a problem, but it takes forever! Solution, get the filter replaced and don't over fill the tank.

1996 Chrysler Sebring fuel pump automatic shut off


It sounds like the vent hose or tube from the fuel tank to the side of the inlet assembly is restricted. It can be twisted or bent. I've seen one case where it was misrouted and smashed against the frame rail. The vent tube allows air to escape while filling with fuel.
