Don't know what you have but, 99% of the time it is a flap in the tank that gets stuck( causes slow fills or gas coming back out at you). This is a tank replacement. 1% is the fill vent is clogged up. Tube that comes from the tank to the top of the fill tube. There is a quick disconnect by the tank. Remove it and blow air in each side. Doesn't take much air. Blowing it in the tank you can see it start to swell. That is plenty. Be careful doing it towards the tank. You can blow out seals.

I have trouble filling gas tank on my 13 F-250 pump shuts off takes forever to fill. What might cause this?

The system not venting properly is usually the most common source of this issue. Check filler tube/vent tube for any restrictions. Also try keeping pump nozzle part way out of filler tube.If no restrictions found, possible defective tank vent valve on top of tank. Tank will usually have to be removed to access this valve

When trying to fill my gas tank on my 2002 pathfinder,the pump nozzle keeps shutting off like the tank is full, takes forever to fill this a vent problem?

It very well could be.

Check the vent line coming from the tank to make sure its not crimped off or obstructed.

This may not be a do it yourself check, any good mechanic can check it out for you.

Won't take gas

don't insert nozzle in fill hole so deep. It is not getting the air it needs to vent out while your fillinh the tank. Also start off slow on filling the tank, so that the air will start coming out while gas is going into your gas tank. like is said, the tank isnot venting fast enough, to let the gas come into the tank.
