Question about 2005 Jaguar S-Type

My 2005 will not allow me to pump gas when it is partially full. The pump kicks off and you can only allow gas to dribble in very slowly. Engine light is on as well

Engine Light On , Check Engine Light can be caused by when fueling not tightening Gas Cap, Air locks,Faulty Pressure.I would run the tank down to reserve and have the Check Engine Light ...Checked Fix Issue, and reset.I have heard of this problem causing Engine Light to come on but not the unable to fill up issue.Check your Trunk make sure nothing may be causing vent from tank to be blocked.Good Luck.

Could be that something is inside of the filler neck that is blocking part of the hose like when someone tries to steal your gas and breaks off the hose or leaves it in your tank. Sometimes the way the hose is routed causes it to take slowly. Engine light on means there is a code set that indicates a problem. You can go to one of the automotive stores and they will read it for free. Then come back on here and post what code it is.

Why the diesel and engine oil for together

For diesel to get into the engine oil there is a failed seal in the pump that is allowing the diesel in the pump to escape past the shaft and into the sump.. If it occurring slowly and over time then the problem will be leaking injector tips that are dribbling and allowing the fuel into the combustion chamber and down past the rings . Best discuss this with an accredited diesel pump specialist as the results are detrimental to a diesel engine.

I have a 2005 toyota tacoma and when I go to fill up the tank it will only let me get to 3/4. It lets me get to 3/4 normally then shuts off. The auto shut if in the pump handle will stop and I can slowly...

Check the vent valve to be sure its allowing the air to escape and the fuel is going in.If it isnt it will pop the uato shut off on the gas hose when filling up.The air has to allow the fuel to displace it while filling the tank.It is a closed emission system and you can have it tested with a low pressure tester or a smoke machine at thje dealer or well equipped local repair shop

Fuel tank vent problems

Hi there:

There is a tank pressure vent that allows the pressure from the gas entering the tank when you are filling it, to be vented, otherwise it will kick the fuel nozzle off. That vent ties into the same system as the valve in the recall. Ask your dealer.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Not getting fuel to the carby, have checked float bowl(empty) have taken fuel line off and turned engine over but no fuel comes through. Fuel tank is full

On your Swift, there's probably a fuel filter located just off the gas tank that's somewhat hard to spot. It also takes a bit of finesse to get a wrench in position to change the filter, and so this part is often not changed out until it's completely plugged. I would suggest changing this filter to see if this makes any difference. However, even a plugged filter normally allows a bit of gasoline to dribble through.

A second possibility is that your fuel pump isn't working properly. I don't have my reference materials in front of me, but I believe that this car is equipped with an electric pump, as opposed to a mechanical pump on the engine. If your fuel pump isn't working, you won't get fuel delivery through the lines to your engine. Also, the fuel pump may have failed from having to work extra-hard to compensate for a partially or wholly blocked fuel filter (see above).

I would trouble-shoot both these items; I suspect that one or both of them are contributing to your fuel problem. I have seen a number of Swifts / Metros sold "as-is" or sent to the junk yard for running poorly when their only problem is a clogged fuel filter.

When i pump gas it shoots back out even when its not full

you need to pump the gas slowly. the filler neck is not allowing air to escape out of tank while filling.this causes an air block and causes th gas to shoot back out at you as air escapes.

I have a 2005 silverado 5.3 2wd ext cab. the engine loses power when there is a 1/4 tank of gas. when you put gas in the tank the power returns but not quite 100%. what to check?

Sounds like you may have a inaccurate fuel sending card in the tank where the gauge shows 1/4 tank but may be closer to empty. And when the tank is that low the pump screen could be sucking air but also accumalating debris that was floating in tank and partially blocking your fuel pump pickup screen.

1993 Lexus Ls400 loss of power a 2500-3000rpm when you accelerate hard on the gas pedel, however if you press down on the gas pedal slowly the power will increase all the way up to 6000rps with no power...

It sounds like a fuel delivery issue so it could be many things such as low fuel pressure from the pump,clogged or partially pluged fuel filter, a malfunctioning throttle posisitioning sensor (if you have a check engine light on) or if its turbo it could be turbo lag etc.

2004 chevy 2500 wont take gas into gas tank

I am having the same problem. When turning the pump on full speed it will pump for a few seconds before kicking the pump off like the tank is full even though there is no gas in the tank. I can pump gas if I barely start the pump and hold it by hand but very very slowly so it takes about 20 minutes to fill up. Its not the gas station or the way I am holding the nozzle as I have stopped 20 different places and tried every way imaginable to hold the nozzle. I have changed the filler neck, charcoal canister, and the sensor/filter that is on the side of it that I believe opens to allow fuel vapor to escape and let pressure off the tank when the truck is not running... still no luck. When I had the fuel next off there is a check valve that is made into the top next part of the tank that is spring loaded. I figured this was to keep gas from running back out in the event of a rollover and possibly keep someone from putting a hose down the next and stealing gas. At this point that is the only thing that could possibly be causing the pump to contiune to kick off every few seconds when filling up the tank. Next is to change the tank I suppose unless someone has already ran into this issue and can tell me what I need to do to fix the problem.

Gas gauge seldom reaches full

your fuel tank has a float on the inside with the fuel pump. The float tells your guage where to read. You could check your releif hose on your tank to see if it is clogged . if it doesn,t get air out as fuel goes in it will cause the gas pump to kick off as it thinks your tank is full. when filling up just pull the pump nossel out some and see it that helps
