Question about 2000 Chevrolet Metro

When I try pump gas into my Metro it stops like the gas tank is full but isn't. A gas attendant thought that maybe someone tried to syphon gas out of the vehicle? It takes a long time to put gas in the car, what might the problem be?

How do I drain the gas tank on a 1981Chevy C10 Custom Deluxe pick-up truck?


your typical square body gm trucks from 73-87 do not have drains in the gas tanks " Unless someone added one themselves". The only way to drain the fuel is to run a hose into the tank itself and try to syphon out the remaining fuel into a container using a hose , or a small syphon pump from an auto part store. Being a 1981 model that means it is equiped with a mechanical pump . One alternative is to disconnect the inlet hose that attatches to the mechanical pump and attach a cheap 12 volt electric pump from the part store . You can then pump the fuel out using the existing line .

2004 nissan sentra have problem pumping gas


When you're pumping gas, does it stop you at the end, when the tank is nearly full, or is it not letting you pump gas at all? And how does the fuel gauge read after you've added gas? If it stops you and it still says the tank isn't full, it could just be that the float in your tank that connects to the gauge is wrong.

Please help. . constantly says to fill up 2000 Metro .pump clicks off


The fuel level gage is in the tank, but it cannot shut off the gas pump. The pump shuts off because the baffles in your filler pipe back up the gas, or possibly because your charcoal canister or vent valve is blocked. Try turning the gas hose sideways or upside down when filling. If that doesn't work, have a good mechanic check your evaporative emissions system for blockage.

2005pontiac grand prix with water in the gas tank


Your best bet is to drop the tank and then dump out the water. Dropping the tank isn't that big of deal. Remove the filler hose and a couple vacuum hoses. Unplug the main fue pump harness. Remove the fuel lines. Support the tank with an appropriate jack. Remove the straps and drop the tank.

I have a 2003 sante fe that has died with a full gas tank. I have tried syphoning the gas out but it appears there is something blocking the syphon hose from going all the way into the tank. any...


there is a roll over ball blocking you if your vehicle was to roll over there is a ball that will close off filler neck trapping fuel for safety purposes under vehicle follow the filler neck down to tank beside the big filler neck hose should be a smaller hose remove that hose from tank and insert your syphon hose there this should work for you i assume you have determined that the uel pump is your problem and are trying to access the pump??
