Question about 2004 Honda Pilot

2 Answers

I can't fill my tank up with gas on my 2004 Honda Pilot. I get about 1/2 gallon in and the pump either stops or spits gas back out at me. The tank is not full.

Your problem is the breather on the tank
Its a pipe fitted to the tank that lets the air out when you put fuel in. and it sounds like its blocked up or has a kink in it
Find it ,clean it, and your ok to fill up.

Has your 2004 Honda Pilot gas filling issue been resolved? Can you tell me what was done to fix the problem?

I also own a 2004 Pilot and am having the EXACT same issue. My dealer replaced the Vent Shut Valve, which did not fix the issue, and now Honda is recommending that my dealer replace the entire tank.

Did you call American Honda to tell them about the problem? They have yet to issue any service bulletin or recall for the issue because they are not hearing about it. Please take a minute to call them at (800) 999-1009 to notify them of the problem in hopes they will eventually issue a recall.

Thank you!

How many gallon gas do the gas tank hold?


Fill it with the gas can and then go to a gas station. Your gas can can't be much bigger than 5 gallons, there's very few that are larger because they get heavy. Your gas tank is vastly more than 5 gallons, probably 15 or more in an Envoy.

Gas pump shuts off early when fueling 2004 Dodge Ram 5.7 SLT Pickup.


My work truck does this as well. Pulling out the nozzle doesnt work either. I know it sounds wierd, but try turning the nozzle sideways or upside down when filling the tank. Works well with my work truck.....

Gas spits back when fueling


It sounds like the vent tube on the gas tank may be either plugged, or partially pinched off. Once you start putting gas into it, and have a gallon or two in, does it improve? If the vent is blocked, the only venting you are getting will be around the fill tube you are putting fuel into. Until you get the problem addressed, the only solution is to fill the tank at a reduced rate. Hope this helps.

Why is gas gauge not working correctly since fuelpump was replaced.


Is this a flex fuel vehicle. If so, call the dealership and ask the parts dept. if there is a gauge module (perhaps behind the instrument cluster). This may be the culprit and needs to be replaced.

Honda Civic -2001. Gas fill more than tank capacity?


the sender unit in the tank ,i think it has petrol in the float so its not reading correct.with the filler neck and associated pipes then it no doubt holds nearer 15 gals or about 80 litres .I couldnt afford to buy this much petrol in one go as its just over 1 euro 20cents a litre here so that would cost me 90+ euros or if the exchange rate is right this morning thats a dollar a litre

2004 mazda 6 with 3.0l V6..WHen the gas guage falls below a quarter tank the car shutters really bad getting on and off the interstate. Almost as if no gas is getting pushed to the engine. Dealer ship said...


Find out how many gallons your fuel tank holds. Once it falls below a 1/4 tank and starts to shutter. Proceed to the nearest gas station and fill up. If you fill it up with 12 gallons and your tank holds 12 gallons then your fuel gauge is off. So it should be reading empty instead a 1/4 tank.

Extremly slow to fill with fuel.


The fuel tank vent tube may very possibly be stopped up, kinked, or internally collapsed, thereby not allowing for displacement of air as the fuel is being introduced. hope this helps
