Most vehicles have an anti-trickle valve that prevents you from continuously trickling gas in. On most vehicles, the valve is tripped when the hose is put into the inlet pipe and in all cases prevents you from overflowing the fuel onto the ground.

This anti-trickle valve has failed (likely) or is not being activated when the filler pipe is put in (less likely). Options: 1) You can remove the fuel filler neck and replace the valve (if available). Some assemblies are only sold in units (late 90's LR Disco 1's). 2) You can by-pass the valve (possibly activating a ck eng problem). 3) You can try to clean the valve and see if there's an obstruction there or in the tube leading from the valve to the tank assembly.

Dear friend-you will have to have a look at the rooting of your filler pipe,there must be a restriction in the pipe.rather remove and inspect properly

Just got my 2000 VW New Beetle with 3/4 tank of gas. Drove it 36 miles and its below 1/2 tank. Could it be the gas that they put in? Or something wrong with the car itself?


On just about every vehicle I have ever seen, the fuel gauge will move faster from 1/2 to 1/4 (I never let a tank run past 1/4. Bad for the fuel pump) than from full to 3/4 or 3/4 to 1/2.
Do a mileage check. Fill the tank until the pump stops, reset your trip or note your odometer miles. Dive a few days or a number of miles. Fill the tank again until the pump stops and not the amont it took to fill. Note the number of miles you put on and do the math.

Just replaced the fuel pump on my 95 explorerthe truck cut off while i was driving and wont start up again


first you need to find out if the fuel pump is kicking on or not by turning the key forward (without starting the car) and listening for a humming noise coming from the gastank (your new fuel pump) if no noise is heard, you need to check your connections.

2000 Lincoln Continental. Won't fill with gas without pump clicking off every 20 cents worth . No matter which pump I fill at. Happens always. No accidents ever with this car. No visible kinks in both...


this car has a closed fuel system,and the air pressure coming back out the filler tube is shutting off the pump,only answer is hold the gun and fill slowly.........do not over fill.

Won't take gaskeeps clicking off no matter where you position the nozzle


If your fuel nozzle keeps clicking off while trying to fuel your gas tank then you may have a problem with your fuel tank pressurizing and releasing the pressure. Meaning your tank vent valve may be bad or stuck closed. this is part of your cars emission system and the only real way to check it is have someone with a scanner access the system on your car and check it. A technician can activate the different valves and switches in the system, check it for codes or other problems using a scanner with the proper software for your vehicle. Something you may can do yourself is just look at the hoses going to and from your fuel tank ensuring none are disconnected, collapsed or kinked, this could cause problems also. Hope that helps.

Can't fill the tank


There is a breather tube fitted to the tank which allows air to escape when you fill it with fuel.

That is either blocked or compressed.

When you take the filler cap off is there a gust of air in or out of the tank

Car stalled and won't start again


Sounds like it might be either the fuel filter or the fuel pump, cause if you ran the tank down, you probably had sludge in the bottom of the tank that you sucked into the engine, you can try using a fuel system cleaner, you may have sucked sludge into the injectors running it, Zmax sells a fuel system cleaner, or there is one called RUN RIGHT, I would try putting some of that in letting it sit a few min then after it sat a few to soak in and break down the sludge, then start the car up, kick your idle up to around 1500 RPM do not go higher then that cause you will damage the engine, try that and see if that works for you, if not then I is probably the fuel pump or filter.
hope this helps.

1996 fuel pump in gastank


Unfortunately not. most fuel pumps are located inside the tank and the fuel filters are located along the frame work of the vehicle, running in line with the fuel lines. There are some exceptions. Some cars have fuel pump locations that will allow you to access them without dropping the tank but, this model will require you to at least lower the tank for complete access.
