Hi from uk make sure you push pump nozzle fully in tank filler as there is a flap just below filler that has to be opened fully to allow fuel to flow unrestricted ?? also considering age of vehicle ? check under the wheel arch along side of fuel filler pipe you will see a hose attached alongside ? make sure this is not kinked or blocked up at its lower end this hose is the ventilation for fuel tank ie as you put fuel into tank you also displace air from tank there for if air vent is blocked ? fuel will be restricted fro flowing hence pump shuts off ? the pipe vent is subjected to dirt from roadway and rain spray due to its location and usually blockage is with hardened mud over time ? hope this helps ? best wishes from n/west uk

I,m having trouble filling my gas tank. The pump keeps shutting off.


The vent on the tank is restricted and the pump nozzle can't take all the air coming from the tank as it fills. Many gas stations across the country have vapor recovery nozzles designed to capture air from your fuel tank and vent it back into the tank under ground, and out the roof vent pipe on top of the building. It's for fuel vapor emissions reduction. Until you put a few gallons in the tank, pull the boot back a little with your fingers to unseat it from the filler neck, then let go and you should be o.k. If it keeps shuting off after that, then you may have a problem with your own vapor recovery system not working properly. Check other nozzles and see if they all are that way. Mabe it's the station.

I have a problem filling my 2003 Ford focus gas tank. The pump keeps shutting off and I can only fill a little at a time. I had the car checked at STS Auto center in Island Park NY and the mechanic...


I have had the same problem a few times myself, usually just pulling the the pump out alittle stops the problem, its usually from the gas backing up in the line and not enough air coming out of the tank

I can't put gas in my car without the pump shutting off every five seconds. I think the metal flap where you put the gas pump into the car fell into the line. what can i do to get it out?


On most modern gas pumps there is a sensor in the tip of the nozzle. When it feels to much pressure or liquid it shuts the pump off. When you are filling your tank you need to leave a little room for air to come out. Try to not put the nozzle in as far and see if that will work. You will only need to leave a little bit of room. Hope it helps!

2004 hyundai accent. trouble filling gas tank


I have a 2005 Hyundai Accent, It is not possible to fill the tank if you are letting the petrol pump run at full speed.Trying to fill up quickly it will only build up pressure and cut off. Next time you fill up just pull the petrol pump handle half way, it will take longer to fill but you wont get the blow back. Modern petrol pumps are getting quicker all the time.Hope this helps you.

Gas shuts off every few seconds when filling gas tank


there is a vent tube that runs along side the fuel tank fill pipe, this tube allows air to went out as fuel is put in,if it kinks (it is very soft thin plastic tube) then u end up with your problem, replace the vent tube, the fill pipe and vent tube come as one part.
