The tank is not venting properly. If it is a newer model you may have an EVAP control ,problem that controls tank pressures. You will have to have a scan test performed on the system to see what may be at fault

How do you fix vapor lock?


Vapor lock is more or less impossible with a fuel injected engine.
Years ago when engines used a carburetor, liquid gas flowed thru the line from the tank and sat in the bowl of the carb until it was pulled thru the venturi into the intake. If the fuel line or carb became too hot, the liquid gas would vaporize.
Fuel injectors accomplish the same effect by spraying a vapor of fuel into the cylinders under pressure.

1997 mercury mountaineer code p1450


Hi there:
The first thing that I suggest could be replace the gas cap; also check a possible defective EVAP (Evaporative Emission Canister Vent solenoid). HERE the instructions.


DTC P1450 - Unable to Bleed Up Fuel Tank Vacuum
Monitors the fuel vapor vacuum and pressure in the fuel tank. The system failure occurs when the EVAP running loss monitor detects excessive fuel tank vacuum with the engine running (but not at idle).



Keep in mind that, if problem persists you will need a smoke machine to properly diagnose.


Hope this helps.

When filling the fuel tank,the fuel has to be added very slowly...unable to use the gas station pump with out stopping the pump every 10 seconds seems to be a restriction...inspected the filler tube to the...


The vent solenoid "closes" the fuel system while driving to allow fuel vapors to be burned in the engine. If your vent solenoid is not operating, this is a condition you will have. Get the vent solenoid tested.

DUAL GAS TANKS: FORD ECON 150 1988 FAMILY VAN


The actual switching of tanks is performed by a solenoid operated valve that is controlled by the toggle switch. The valve or it's solenoid could be getting sticky and not switching over quickly. The switch should also change wire connections to the new tank fuel-level sensor. It's possible that the fuel pump is getting tired and has a problem picking up fuel from the new tank. I assume that the vehicle is using the stock engine-mounted fuel pump.
