When filling my gas tank the nozzle clicks off when gas is filling. Why does it act like the tank is full and click off.

    I have tried this but it still clicks off. Someone told me that there was a check valve in the tank that might be bad or a vent might be plugged. I don't know where to look for any of these problems. Do you know where I would find them. Thanks

    I have done this but it doesn't help. Do you know if there is a check valve in the gas tank or a vent that might be plugged.

Don't stick it in so far.

    You might have a vacuum leak. The gas nozzle has to form some what of a vacuum to keep fumes from escaping into the atmosphere. If the nozzle dose not sense a vacuum it shuts off. Make sure the boot on the nozzle sits flat against your filler rim. Also do not use any thing to latch the nozzle open. This is dangerous and against the law. Besides the attendant could be watching and shutting down the pump.

Do not insert the tip of nozzle all the way in when filling gas because if you insert too deep it triggers the nozzle sensor that gas is full and fill gas slowly when pressing nozzle handle.

Loosing power when drining


Hi Jennifer-
I believe I may be able to help you with the gas spillage you are having when filling the tank. This happened on my 1998 Toyota Camry.
One day, even though I was low on fuel, the attendant had trouble adding gas to my tank. Gas would spill during filling or the nozzle would click off (as though it was full) even though it was not. I had to stand there myself and slowly add gas until the tank was full.
I learned that my car had a thin vent tube that would run from the gas tank to the gas tank opening. As gas is rushing into the tank during filling, the air that is being displaced from the gas tank escapes through this tube. This tube had rusted closed a bit and was restricting the air flow escaping from the tank during pumping causing the problems I described. Once this tube was replaced, my problem was solved!
Hope this helps!

Gas pump shuts off while filling tank constantly


like answer number 2 up there, California has a Fume Collector over the nozzle, and extends over the hose itself.... its really important NOT to "top it off" after the nozzle shuts off automatically.... it has a tendancy to fill up that vapor space with gas, and you can try to put gas in your car, but it stops each time you pull the "trigger" on the handle (acts like the tank is full) The service station person needs to come out and drain out the excess gas from the hose vapor space. (they are quite familiar with this.... it happens a lot)

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


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.

Why would the gas gauge on a 2005 Chevy Malibu go from full to empty while driving when you know the gas tank is full?


This happens on mine, its got to do with the fuel sensor, I frequently fill up and sometimes keep fueling after the nozzle clicks. This is what caused my problem. I have since stopped fueling immediately after it clicks and have not had the problem. Make sure you arent over filling your tank

1995 Saab 900 Won't Take A Fill Up


Sorry if this gets posted twice. I have a 95 Saab 900, which I just acquired. I can get only about 4 or 5 gallons in at a time. The best analysis I found was this one where the man pinpoints a stuck valve in the gas tank, and tells of what he did to address it.: http://www.quasimotors.com/9_5_gas_fill_prob.htm

We have an "04 Suzuki Verona that does the same thing, we have found that it is not the station as much as it is the angle that the tank inlet is on. When you put the gas nozzle in, it fills with some air to replace the gas comming out of the nozzle. Unless you find a place that has a higher pressure pump, you are in a long and "Clicking Off" ownership when it time to pump gas. For the record, I have noticed that if I chose the lowest setting on the handle, the pump will ussually fill about $10 at a time. two or three of those, and its a done deal. Hope this helps you.

Unable to pump gas


This problem is caused by the fuel tank vent pipe being restricted, usually it is kinked, replace the filler pipe vent.

When i go to put gas in my car it takes the gas and then clicks off the pump like its full so i have to wait like 30 seconds and put more in and keep doing these steps till its full...why does my tank not...


hi from uk are you putting the fuel pump gun/nozzle fully into tank filler? as there is a flap valve inside the tank filler neck and unless nozzle pushes this flap open it will restrict flow of fuel into tank one other cause of problem slow filling? is the ventilation pipe from the tank which is positiond along side of fill pipe ? may be kinked or blocked at outlet look under car where filler is and check? as fuel enters tank it displaces air from tank via this vent pipe? hope this helps you solve problem
