The evaporative vent solenoid may be stuck shut or the vent outlet from the solenoid may be plugged with debris.
Is the service engine soon light on? If so, take the vehicle to your local Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts and ask them to scan the car for trouble codes.
Write the codes down and reply back to this post and we can start diagnosing.

Trouble filling gas tank

If your having trouble filling the fuel tank. Consider a few things first, Have you tried holding the filler nozzle at a different angle? Have you had any resent repairs done to the fuel tank and/or filler nozzle? Are you trying to fill a fuel tank that is already full?
If none of the above suggestions apply to your problem then you may have an obstruction down inside the filler collar or the vent tube that runs parallel with the filler tube.

I have a 1991 Toyota Corolla and I don't know what is wrong with my fuel hose, it leaks when I make a right, and when I fill the tank to a point. And I can't locate the problem, all there is, is a stench...

you need to get your car to a car shop so they can put it on a lift to see what is wrong. fuel leak can be very dangerous.
there is a fuel pump gasket on the top of the tank
there is a filler hose goes to the side of the tank
there are a pressure hose and a return hose go to the top of the tank
there are evaporation hoses on top of the tank as well.
rubber hoses are getting old and crack easily
so there are many possibiltities that can cause leak

We have trouble filling the gas tank on our 2002 echo. The pump keeps shutting off

sorry to say, this is typical of the echo, after a couple yrs, the fill tube begins collapsing, not allowing enuff fuel flow,, your alternatives are to replacew the fill tubes, or to just pump fuel very slowly.

When filling up, wont accept gas as it fills the tube and shuts pump off

your going to need someone to remove the filler neck and check for blockage. anytime yohave a problem involving fuel you should have a technician do the work.

When fueling, the gas tank backs up & cuts off nozzle.

make sure that the vent on the tank is still clear!! Did it work for a lil while after he let you get the car or was it still messed up when you went to pick the car up after the repairs

Ford Windstar 2001 Gas filling problem

The fule tank vent tube is blocked/clogged. It's the little hole next to the filler hose that invites spiders that clog it up. Blow out the tube and it fixes the problem.
