Question about Nissan Altima
No. There isn't a sensor in the neck of the tank. When you fill up, don't pull the nozzle out to fill up the tube. The gas going in is normally around 60° and it will expand in the tank, if the outside temperature is higher than what it was when pumped. Gas pumps are required to have automatic shutoffs on the nozzles. When it clicks off, just fill it to the nearest dollar. The difference in gas that you put in, will save you the cost of watching ir run back out. It also won't ruin your paint if it isn't overflowing.

I would suspect a problem in the evaporative emissions system. If the check engine light is on, and I would suspect it is,then I'd suggest taking the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for any fault codes stored. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. The check engine light is to alert you that the computer has noted a fault in one of the car's systems and getting the codes will show what the computer has identified. Some components of the evap system are a cannister to collect fuel vapors where they are stored until certain engine conditions are met, at which time the a purge valve is activated to evacuate the vapors from the cannister to be used in the combustion process. The purge valve solenoid could be damaged or faulty, the cannister could be clogged or restricted, or there could be a vacuum leak. These are some things that could cause the situation you describe, however, that is just speculation and getting the codes should help narrow down the cause of the problem. I am really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
