Question about 2001 GMC Jimmy
It doesn't matter how much gas is in the tank, I cannot put gas in the filler tube unless I squeeze the gas pumb nozzle for fractions of a second at a time (lets 4-5 cents worth of gas to be released in the filler tube). The nozzle "releases'' as if it was detecting the tank was full (which it isn't). I have had this problem for over a week and the same problem occurs not matter what gas station or pump I use. After about 10 minutes worth of effort I manage to get about $3 worth of gas in and most of the time there is spillage due to backing up of the fuel in the filler tube.
Same problem yesterday on my Dad's Jimmy. Left my brother in law stranded cause they couldn't put gas in it. There is a pressure purge valve next to the tank that is supposed to release the pressure on the tank when the engine is shut down. These often fail in Jimmy's and Blazer's and because the tank is still pressurized, the antisiphon valve doesn't open up and this keeps you from putting gas in the tank. You need to replace the part.
