Question about 2001 Jaguar XJ

1 Answer

Cannot get gas to go down when pumping, clicks off, by not full.

Gas pump clicks off when filling up 2001 jaguar and gas will not go down bubbling back up into cap well and running on ground. The gauge registers the little bit I'm able to force down after 20 minutes about 1.5 gallons! Only able to get about a gallon before hose nozzle clicks off like its full. My engine light came on a day before the problem started.

The tank is not venting during filling--check for a damaged hose/line from the tank to the charcoal filter. Also check the large rubber coupling hose that goes from the filler end to the tank fitting for damage. Look inside the filler passage with a flashlight for an obstruction.
Check the computer with a scanner for any codes and pursue to repairs. It might be something to do with the fuel filler area.

How do I fix my gas tank. I put gas in but it doesn't let me pump without clicking every few seconds. It's not the adjustment of the pump where you move it and it fills.


I don't know year--make--model?
Check vent line and/or evap system. The air in the tank has to go somewhere or it will burp back up the fill tube and shut off the gas pump.

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.

2001 Durango acts like the gas tank is full during filling cutting off the pump. The only way to fill tank is to pump gas really slow


Chrysler and Dodge have a fuel vapor filter that allows air out of the gas tank but filters the harmful fumes. Usually the problem happens from topping off your gas after the gas pump stops due to the automatic shut off and then putting more gas in the tank (to make the bill an even $50. or to the next $5 increment, or pumping more in just because it fits). Anyway the filter gets saturated with gas, is not able to breath, and causes a vacuum in the tank. Because of this, the anti-siphon ball is not able to float around and sits at the opening of the fuel fill tube and won't allow any more gas to be put in (acts like the car is full). If you pump super duper slow like put a nickel to hold the gas pump handle, it will trickle in without a problem, but it takes forever! Solution, get the filter replaced and don't over fill the tank.

I ran out of gas and after fueling the car it still wont start dont think its getting any gas. the car is a 2001 jaguar xj8. How or where can i check fuel system?


if you ran completely out of gas you may have harmed the fuel pump,the gas is what keeps the fuel pump bearings lubricated.there is one thing you can try that has work alot of times in my line of work,the pump could just be stuck and you have one chance to get it going again,have a friend try to start your car while you hit the bottom of the fuel tank with a hammer,sometimes this vibration will unlodge the pump

Gas gauge reads full when underway. However, when


Most likely it a bad fuel level sensor on you fuel pump. You will have to replace the fuel pump as that is the only way to replace the sensor for you fuel gauge. The sensor is built into the fuel pump. The contacts on the sensor become corroded over time and cause the sensor to malfunction causing your fuel gauge to read full all the time. I have a 2001 Montana extended version that had the same problem. In order to know when I needed to fill the tank, I would completely fill it each time I put fuel in and reset my trip odometer. I would go 400 miles on the tank before I would refuel until we were able to replace the fuel pump.

When I pump gas, the gas pump clicks off every few seconds or so. I can't get more than 2 gallons in the tank before it clicks off. I takes me like 10 minutes to fill my tank.


is this happening at the same pump??? Each pump has a tiny vacuum line that's located in the spout. When the gas reaches a certain level and starts to cause a vacuum, the pump shuts off
