When I purchased a 1989 Ford F-250 and I filled the front tank with gas. The front tank pumps gas to rear gas tank was overfilled and spilling onto the ground. Any clues on what could be the problem?


Hello Sam, I think you have a problem with your fuel solenoid valve that switches from front tank to the rear . I do know that Ford dealer has a recall on '93 F-150 like mine. I'm not sure about yours.

I have a 97 nissan sentra ive ran out of gas 3 times this month and the last time i ran out of gad i filled it and drove it for a while that day then it shut off and wont start no more


more like fuel pump damaged. gasoline keeps fuel pump cool and lubricated if fuel tank run empty fuel pump will over heat which will destroy it. never run out of gas.fuel filter will get plugged with debris from fuel tank when tank runs empty all sediment botton tank will break up stop up fuel filter.

Where is the fuel filter on a 2004 dodge stratus, my engine light came on after filling with gas, then went off, today it is on again after I gave it gas to take off and the car choked, so I gave it gas...


did you stop fueling as soon as gas pump clicked off or did you keep trying to add extra fuel . some vehicles if gas tank overfills fuel fills into evaporative system and causes check engine light to come on.

When I go to fill up the gas tank the gas keeps cutting off at the pump handle and I have to slow the gas pump to a trickle in order to fill the tank.


The problem is that your gas tank "pushes back" like it's full even when it isn't and makes the fuel valve click off. Tom and Ray on Car Talk covered this in a 2007 show and I pasted some of their response below:

"RAY: This condition is probably caused by either a blockage in your gasoline vapor recovery lines or a bad refueling control valve.

TOM: Gasoline vaporizes. How do we know that? Well, when gasoline is spilled, you can smell it, right? What you're smelling is vaporized gasoline.

RAY: And in the old days, when you filled up your tank, all the air inside the tank -- the air filled with gasoline vapors -- came whooshing out through the filler hole or through a vent at the top of the gas tank.

TOM: But then people in places like Los Angeles realized they couldn't see the person standing next to them due to smog. And since gasoline vapors contribute to smog, car makers were forced to install devices to capture those vapors.

RAY: So now each car has a vapor recovery unit that collects the gasoline vapors from the tank and then, the next time the car is started, sends them to the engine, where they're combusted. Your vapor recovery system isn't working, Lottie. One possibility is that one of the rubber hoses is blocked or collapsed."

Gasoline pump at gas station keeps turning off


There is a vent valve located near the fuel tank. The vent valve is part of the EVAP emission system. If the valve is obstructed or failed, air will not escape while refueling.
Has the service engine light come on at all?

Gas overflows when fillingtank.


This sounds like the gas tank vent pipe is obstructed.

Fuel splash during fill-up


pull out the gas nozzle a little and then try again...because some tanks are just made wrong and if you move the nozzle back out of the tank and try to pump a little slower that might help you...hope this will help you...good luck..
