When filling the gas tank gas shoots back out at me


Sounds like you have a venting problem with the breather hose.
There should be a hose coming off the neck of the gas filler pipe somewhere that relieves pressure out of the tank when you fill and when your pump sucks fuel it lets air in to balance the pressure. I would suggest this breather pipe is either bent or plugged somehow.

Draining fuel tank


the FSM book covers this. (ill do the full tank pull... as you never said the JOB!)
its siphoned to near empty. (use a hand pump for fuel , sold at all boat center)
do you need the FSM page quotes?
on some cars there is an anti-spill roll over check valve
at tank fill port making siphoning very hard.
my answers are USA cars, on this USA forum.... and swifts vary big time world wide..... dig?

quoted. (no smoking no open flames, outdoors best. no shop heaters of ANY KIND near)
"tank pull steps. (sure drained)
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Relieve the pressure from the fuel system. (in the FSM)
  3. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  4. Remove rear seat cushion.
  5. Disconnect connectors of fuel tank wire harness.
  6. Hoist vehicle.
  7. Disconnect fuel tank filler hose and breather hose from filler neck.
  8. As fuel tank has no drain plug, drain fuel tank by pumping fuel out through fuel tank filler or fuel tank inlet. Use hand operated pump to drain fuel tank.
    1. Disconnect fuel pipe joints and fuel hose from pipes. For quick joint, disconnect it as follows:
      • Remove mud, dust and/or foreign material between pipe and joint by blowing compressed air.
      • Unlock joint lock by inserting special tool (part No. 09919-47020) between pipe and joint.
      • Disconnect joint from pipe.
    2. Remove fuel tank from vehicle.

Having trouble filling car with fuel


Do you mean the Vent Tube?
You may have a restriction within the fill hose - collapsed.
Ground (earth) wires do not have much to do with refueling.
Breather isn't electronic though if car operated without the fuel cap on you could get a Trouble Code. Recheck the vent HOSE and the fill Hose.

Car can't fill fuel keeps shutting off and floods back out of filler on the ground down the side of the quarter panel have had this problem 4 years


from under the car you will see one pipe running from the top of the tank and along to the front of the engine that is the breather pipe. usually if this pipe become blocked in some way either the line or the vent control unit/relay it would show up on the engine revs etc and the computer (ecu). if its not then it could be the vapour line in the tank filling line stops you pumping air into the tank upon filling. this can cause fuel to pump back out as fast as you are filling it. if the valve in the line is in the wrong way or damaged it can do this. surpost to stop fuel theives.

I have a 1999 Ford Escort Wagon. The gas tank will fill about 3/4 full and then the gas hose shut down. It then takes about ten minutes to get the rest of the gas into the tank. What is the problem?


on the wagon thay made the vent breather for tank when filling to long unfortunitly their nothing you can do other than feed it really slow backing the pump hose off just alittle but not always affective.

I have to pump my gas really slow or the gas shoots back out. A friend says its a piece missing on my tank. What could this be?


there should be a beather pipe attached to the tank to remove pressure build up in the tank when filling up. if the breather is blocked then pressure from the tank will build up then force the gas back up the filler pipe when filling.check your breather pipe.

Unable to pump gas


This problem is caused by the fuel tank vent pipe being restricted, usually it is kinked, replace the filler pipe vent.
