My 06 rendezvous keeps dying when it's hot out above 70 degrees is this a o2 sensor and is their a sensor in the gas tank


It might be vapor locked..It's caused from overfilling you gas tank all the time...It's when the pressure in your gas tank becomes greater than your gas pump...The car will shut off...If this is what it is just loosen the gas cap and the car will crank immediately..While opening the gas cap it would be sucking in air.. Sometimes people put a aftermarket gas cap on there car without any ventilation..The correct way to fix is the change the charcoal filter in the line running back to the carburetor..Over the years of over filling your car..the gas has made the filter hard inside and that causes vapor lock...Alway only go to the next nickel when filling up your car at the gas station...Hope this helps

2002 Lincoln ls has a gas leak when I go to the gas station and put 15$ or more gas starts rushing out not all of it maybe 5$ worth which is enough and as I drive it today I see a small leak


I can see your picture that you posted. Each tank can usually only leak from a few places. The filler tube, the overfill tube, the fuel line going in, the fuel line going out, or a seam in a metal tank. Also, seeing as how A lot of pumps are made of plastic, it could be leaking from there also. As I stated before there is also a rubber O-ring between the pump and the tank which could also leak. Other than that, that is it, unless there is a hole in the tank. Please be cautious

What would cause a gasoline odor when I'm driving? No visible leaks and not overfilling the tank.


Could be anything. Bad gas cap, evaporation canister bad, bad hose, engine running rich etc. No way to give you an accurate diagnosis simply too many possibilities.

Where is the overflow vapor senar located


If this is related to the fuel filling, evaporative canister issue, maybe the following will help. Most of the components for the fuel tank are located near the tank itself, with some near the front of the tank and the evaporative canister components behind the driver side rear wheel inside a splash cover.

The biggest problem people complain about is not being able to fill the tank without the pump stopping if the tank is filled at a higher rate than a trickle. This issue is caused by trying to overfill the tank after the fill nozzle has clicked off causing fuel to damage the evaporative charcoal canister clogging it and causing the blow back to the filler neck and fill nozzle, simulating a full tank shut-off of the filling process. This is not exclusive of Hyundai, and gas pumps usually warn of overfilling the fuel tank because of this known result. This evap containment mechanism was developed for the cars to replace the vapor collecting mechanism that gas stations used to use partly for the fill nozzle and collection dangers, now all that vapor is collected and safely burned when the engine is running. The evap canister can be expensive to replace, in the neighborhood of $150 from the dealer, and it's not recommended to try and bypass the system or you can create more issues than you solve.

If this isn't related to your issue, sorry, maybe you can post more info on what the issue is and how you need help.

Can't fill the gas tank, I had the check valve replaced in the gas line and it work once and now it's back to not letting me fill it. I unplugged it but would like it to work. Any ideas what it may be?


fuel vent Charcoal canister will make it difficult to fill the gas, this canister vents the gas tank and if you overfill the tank then it screws up the Charcoal canister and will need to be replaced, I just found an old canister from the used parts place and had my mechanic replace it, went directly to the gas station and presto no more problem filling gas. DO NOT overfill your tank after replacing canister!

My 2005 Chevy Classic Malibu will not start. Conditions are: overfilled at gas station to where gas spewed out. No problems prior to this. Car would not start. Have pressure in the fuel line, can hear...


Sounds like the fuel pump went bad, or a relay for the fuel pump. My guess it's a fuel pump more likely to have gone bad.

Maybe a coincidence that when you overfilled the gas at the gas station that it put the pump 'over the edge' as far as functioning.

I do not see a connection between overfilling and the fuel pump going bad at that instance, but anything is possible.

Can't get gas into my 2002 Hyundai Accent.


The reason the gas station pump shuts off is when the fuel reaches the tip of the gas nozzle, so when you are filling your car and the gas nozzle (gas stations pipe) keeps shutting off it means that the pipe that runs to the gas tank is not open completely, what happens is when you pump the gas in the car the supply pipe from the gas tank opening to the tank fills up quickly and this causes the gas station pipe nozzle to shut off, have some body take down the gas tank and have a look at the gas tank opening and also gas supply pipe that runs from the gas filler opening ( on the car body) to the gas tank. Have a look at it and please don't forget to rate the answer if it was helpful, thanks!

2000 blazer runs rough after gas tank was overfilled


there is a vapour purge line from the tank to a charcoal cannister. The line& cannister has been contaminated with liquid gas. When the engine attempts a normal purge from cannister it gets loaded with raw gas, causing rough running and cherck engine light. Replace cannister. Never over fill gas tank, especially on hot sunny days
